As the adage goes, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder.” The main ingredient to feeling beautiful is doing whatever makes you feel the best! Read this article to get some tips on how to put your best face and body forward, and let your inner beauty show on the outside.
This can be a problem because your follicles are open at that point, and you can get bad results. Sunning after sugaring or waxing may irritate the already sensitive skin. This is the same reason you should wait to apply scented products to sugared or waxed skin; they cause irritation that is difficult to soothe.
Darkening very light eyelashes can really open up the eyes and make a noticeable impact on the eye color. Avoid using black mascara, which may appear way too harsh on light lashes and against lighter hair colors. Instead, you can have them tinted professionally or you can use brown pencil to line your eyes.
If your hair is greasy or oily, an easy way to fix this if you don’t have time to wash it, is to use a bronzer compact or baby powder. Brunettes should carry bronzer compact and add to extra oily hair, and blondes should do the same with baby powder. This will temporarily hide your unwashed hair.
Use cocoa butter on stretchmarks and scars. Cocoa butter is a beauty treatment with roots in ancient times. It has long been known to normalize skin-tone, and to make your skin more resilient. Cocoa butter has a small price-tag, and is available almost anywhere you can buy lotions or creams.
Use cucumbers or rosewater to prevent dark eye circles. Either of these remedies will lighten the color of the skin under your eyes while cooling them at the same time. Try dipping a piece of cotton in rosewater or cucumber juice, and apply it under your eyes for fifteen minutes.
The worst thing that could happen when trying false eyelashes is discovering a glue allergy. To make sure allergies will not be a problem, put some of the eyelash glue on your arm. Then place plaster on that and let it sit for 24 hours. If you do not have a rash, you will not have any issues.
Use thin, raw potato slices to cut down on puffy eyes. Leave it on your eyes for 10 minutes. Other methods to use include cucumbers, teabags, and chilled teaspoons. You can get rid of the puff in your eye area and you will look brighter and more awake.
Make sure you both shave and then exfoliate prior to any application of a tanning spray. Preparing your skin properly will make the application process go more smoothly, and also give you a more even, natural-looking coloration afterwards.
If you’re concerned that your freshly painted nails will smear, you can protect them with a thin film of some type of oil. Either put a drop of olive oil on your palm and rub it over the nails, or even easier, use a can of olive oil cooking spray and give each finger just the quickest touch of cooking spray. The oil will form a protective barrier that will keep the polish from smearing.
Wearing heavy foundation or powdery makeup is not a good look for faces over 40. It accentuates the drier character of the skin. If your face is 40 or older it’s better to use a lighter touch. If your skin is fairly even-colored you may be able to skip foundation entirely. Foundations should be very light in weight.
A great way to make small eyes appear to look much bigger is to steer clear of dark shades of eye shadow. Begin by using a nude base as a foundation, and then use a shadow that is one or two shades darker than the foundation in the crease. After blend the color up towards the brow by using your finger.
To reduce face puffiness in the morning, use your tongue to hold an ice cube at the roof of your mouth for a minute. The cold from the ice cube helps to reduce puffiness from the inside out. This will achieve the same result that splashing your face with ice water does.
If you have run out of shaving cream and you don’t want to use soap to shave your legs because of the drying effect, then use hair conditioner! Coating your legs with conditioner before shaving will soften the hair and make it easier to shave, leaving the legs feeling very soft and silky.
Practicing good basic hygiene is an easy way to maintain ones beauty while doing things that help maintain the body. Showering, brushing ones teeth, and using deodorant are all ways that one can maintain their appearance for others with out doing anything hard or outside of ones daily routine.
If you break your favorite eye shadow, repair it instead of throwing it out. Place a piece of plastic wrap over the shadow tray and break up the shadow into a powder using a butter knife over the plastic. Then, saturate the shadow with rubbing alcohol, place a tissue over the shadow, and top it with a coin. Press down as hard as you can to re-compact the broken shadow. The alcohol will evaporate, leaving you with a shadow that’s as good as new.
Try to control the dark circles under your eyes. Dark circles can make you look older. However, for some people it can be genetic. Check your background first before going crazy trying to find a solution. If it is not genetics, it could be due to allergies or a bad diet. If you are older, it may be natural aging.
