People once thought only middle-aged women should use product on their skin. However, in today’s world, both men and women of all ages can learn beauty tips. When all is said and done, being good looking has little to do with genetics. With a little effort on your part, any number of beauty tips can work in your favor.
When you file your nails, make sure you don’t file in only one direction. This can put stress on your nails and cause them to weaken, become thin and break easily.
If you have striking brown eyes, you can play them up by adding eyeshadow, liner, and mascara in colors that are especially flattering for your eye color. Look for rich, matte shadows in shades of green, copper, and blue. These colors add depth and intensity to your eye color, especially when topped with a few coats of navy mascara.
Make your shampoo and conditioner last longer. If you are using an expensive shampoo or conditioner that is thick, you can stretch out the amount of use you get out of it by watering it down. Be careful not to add too much water because this can ruin it.
Instead of applying false eyelashes that may fall off sometime during the day, use an eyelash curler. An eyelash curler will curl your lashes upwards and away from the eye, making your eyes appear bigger. Make sure you use the curler before applying mascara, or you’ll have to reapply it.
Using eye drops can make your eyes appear brighter. Drops will also prevent the redness caused by dryness or irritation. If you stare at a television or computer screen for several hours a day, eye drops may be just what you need to feel better. Keep a bottle of eye drops in your desk or purse and use them every few hours.
To get softer and sexier lips use a honey scrub! Take 3 drops of honey, and mix it with half a teaspoon of sugar. Apply the mixture liberally to your lips, and let it sit for about 10 minutes. When you wash it off, you’ll find your lips have gotten softer and may even look fuller.
Bump up your hair color. If you have dyed your hair and the results aren’t as dramatic as you like you can fix this by adding a box of hair coloring to your shampoo. Lather it into your hair and let it set for 5 minutes, then rinse it out.
If you like how you look with powdered mineral makeup yet know that it makes you itch, try looking for a formula free of bismuth oxychloride. This ingredient is the main cause for irritation when using this kind of makeup. Fortunately, there are many good brands without the pigment.
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.
Once you are finished putting on your lipstick, put your finger in your mouth and then pull the skin out to form an “O” shape. This trick will remove extra lipstick that could otherwise get stuck to your teeth.
Sometimes, when coloring your hair, you may find that the color you chose simply isn’t strong or intense enough for your liking. You can solve this problem by purchasing a second box of color, mixing half the product with shampoo, and reapplying it to just-colored hair. Let it sit for only 5-10 minutes before rinsing and you will find the color intensified.
Everyone loves the way a perfect sheer nails look, with long and tapered nails, but this is very expensive to keep up and takes a lot of time and patience. For an elegant look without all the fuss of expensive and painstaking upkeep, try using a short, round, and dark nail shape. File the nails so they are in line with the tip of the finger and round off near the corners.
Visine is an important part of any beauty kit. Following a late night or troubled sleep, your eyes can be tired and red. Red eyes look good on no one and can add years to your face. You can clear up this problem with a few drops of Visine. It also works as a great acne treatment. Put a touch of it on your pimple and leave it to dry. Both of these ideas will help you to look great everyday.
Steer clear of using hair extensions to add volume and length to hair. These hair extensions are usually in textures and colors that will not blend properly with your hair and stick out like a sore thumb. Because the point of attachment is difficult to disguise, only use extensions when lengthening a ponytail or fattening, an up-do where it is not as noticeable and does not need to blend.
Lip liner is frequently used by women to give shape and definition to their lips. Please, please don’t make the mistake of using lip liner to “draw” your lips on, completely independent of your actual lip shape. You are far better off using lip liner to define your lip’s natural shape, filling in with lipstick. An artificial lip line is clownish, unsubtle, and unflattering. If your lips are thin, stick with a fresh color that’s not too bright – a berry tone, for example.
There is far more to beauty than what you were born with. A bit of effort can really enhance your appearance. This can greatly improve your appearance, if you follow the right advice. Use the tips you have learned and you can bring out both your inner and outer beauty.
