Looking good can be a full-time job, or you can stay beautiful the smart way. There are many ways to improve your look, and you don’t have to break the bank to do it. The following paragraphs are full of ideas you can use that the industry pros know already.
Keep wool pads that have been soaked in water, in your fridge. You can also keep teabags or cucumbers in your fridge. This is great if you have puffy eyes and can relieve them. Using this on your eyes will make you look refreshed and will last all day.
If you are struggling with frizzy hair you can try putting a small amount of hand cream in your hands then running it through your hair. This will help the stray strands stick together and ultimately hold your hair together more as a cohesive whole making you look much more beautiful.
Select a curling iron, one size smaller than the curls you desire. This will help to ensure that your curls don’t get limp or fall out after you put all the work into curling them. They will be a little tight at first but after you finish, gently run your fingers through them to break them up, and then hair spray to perfection.
Take care not to over tweeze your eyebrows. Repeated over-plucking can result in areas where hair refuses to grow back, resulting in bald spots. If you have already developed bare spots in your brows, fill in the areas with a brow pencil temporarily while applying a product to regrow the hair.
Apply shimmer with a light touch in carefully selected areas that will be exposed to light. That will lead to an attractive glow. Use highlighter on the higher, more defining areas of your face. For example, you could highlight brows, nose and cheekbones. Follow with a loose dusting of face powder.
Apply cream to your eyes every night. The skin around your eyes is delicate, and not as thick as the skin elsewhere on your face. This makes the skin around your eyes more prone to be lined and dry. Keeping the skin moist is a simple solution to that beauty problem.
To give your hair more volume, consider trying a new haircut with layers. Layers are one of the most effective ways to add volume to fine limp hair. Even if you like to wear your hair long, you can still have your stylist cut long layers into the top for a major volume boost.
Filing your nails is a wonderful way of making them look healthy. When filing, it is important to only go in one direction. Doing this will make sure that you don’t get any breakage from causing stress to your nails. You also won’t have to deal with any hang nails that can snag.
To help your lip gloss last longer, apply lip liner first. Fill in your whole lip with the liner before putting on your gloss. With the liner applied, the gloss will have something to stick to, which will help it stay on all day long. For the best effect, use a liner close to the natural color of your lip.
Large pores on the face are a common problem and can be helped. Age and genetics are the cause of large pores and there is a way to help shrink them, go to the dermatologist or spa. There you can receive a microdermabrasion treatment which will gently remove the top layer of dead skin and decrease pore size.
Here is a great and often overlooked tip that can greatly enhance one’s look. Always take time to keep your eyebrows well-shaped and trimmed. Also, never allow yourself to grow a uni-brow. Thread, wax or pluck them to keep your eyebrows defined and under control.
If you want the skin around your eyes to look beautiful and ageless, it is crucial that you take the necessary steps to avoid premature aging. Make sure to apply an eye gel serum, or light cream every morning. Apply your eye cream after moisturizing. Make sure you select an eye cream that contains at least an SPF8 so that you will protect against sun damage and photo-aging.
You may not have the time to do a full makeup job on your eyes. Should this be the case, try a quick smudgy eye look by combining a small amount of lip balm and a small amount of either mascara or eyeliner on the tip of your finger. Rub to an even consistency, then rub across your eyelids as close to the lashes as you can. A smudgy look is what you’re going for. Add two coats of mascara, and you’re ready to go.
UV rays are not as direct in the winter, but they can still damage the skin. Even when the weather turns cold, wear a sunscreen with an SPF rating of at least 15. The skin also needs to be protected from cancer and wrinkles.
It’s paramount to remember the old saying about beauty being in the eyes of just one beholder. If you take good care of yourself and you’re confident and healthy, then you are beautiful. Do not allow things others say to make you feel down when you have worked hard at making yourself look good.
