When you think of beauty, do you just see it as something that makes your commute take much longer? If so, then you have a very narrow view of the subject. Beauty is so much more than that and it can be personalized so that it works with your own schedule. Read on to find out how.
One of the most affordable tools to include in your makeup case is the disposable triangular facial sponge. Dampen the sponge, then use it to help apply your facial makeup more smoothly. You can also use it to smooth down flaky skin patches all over the face, or even to soften makeup that appears to be caked-on.
For added impact and eye-opening, beautifully curled lashes, use a heated eyelash curler. If you would prefer to use a regular eyelash curler, you can create a similar effect by giving your curler a quick blast of a few seconds with your hairdryer. This will help to hold the curl and prevent smudging.
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.
Pink is a good way to draw attention away from skin issues. Tired, red eyes and acne outbreaks are just two of the problems that a set of pink lips can keep people from noticing.
A great way to switch up your beauty routine and add a little spark to your makeup is to use shimmer eye shadow. The glittery eyeshadow makes eyes look bigger and brighter. Select an eye shadow color that is close to your skin’s natural color. Have fun exploring the many different ways of applying a vast multitude of shades.
To get smaller pores, cut refined sugars from your diet. Eating large amounts of refined sugar enlarges your pores, and can also lead to breakouts. If you have a sweet tooth, try sating your cravings with natural sugars like the ones found in fruit. Your skin will definitely thank you for it!
To brighten your skin, try making homemade face masks. Face masks can typically be made from things you have around your house and will give your skin a lovely, natural glow. Look for mask recipes with ingredients like tomato juice, sandlewood powder, or oatmeal. All of these things are great for your face!
Liquid foundation under the cap can be used as a concealer. If you have no concealer, use the makeup from underneath your foundation’s cap. This makes a good concealer. It is quite thick and helps to mask flaws.
Blot oily skin. If you are out on the town and notice your face is oily, use toilet paper to blot your skin. This works as well as any blotting paper and will remove any excess oil you may have on your skin and give you a perfect flawless look.
To get the best results from your styling products, don’t apply them to soaking wet hair. The water in your hair will dilute the products, rendering them less effective. Before applying any products, remove as much excess water from your hair as you can. You’ll see a change in how your products work immediately.
To cover up a zit at the last minute, use a product containing cortisone or benzoyl peroxide. Apply the product to a cotton ball, and gently dab it on your pimple. This will bring down the redness and shrink the zit. This will allow you to easily hide the pimple with concealer.
Baby powder is a great beauty product. You can use it in place of your usual powder, if you should lose it and are in a tight spot. You can also use it to absorb oil in your hair. Just put a little in your brush and comb through. Style as usual.
Apply a tint to your eyebrows. That can be done easily with a brow pencil when you apply makeup, or simply have them dyed at the salon. The tint adds definition and a younger look.
Coconut oil can really work wonders when it comes to your beauty. It has antioxidant properties that help aging, and it does not leave residue on the skin. Mix it with some sugar to exfoliate the skin.
After waxing, avoid a few things. Avoid direct sunlight for at least a full day, and don’t go into a tanning salon. After you wax, it is a bad idea to shower or bath in hot water the first full day after. Any of these activities could mean trouble since pores are still open. You stand to benefit by waiting a little while.
If you love the brightness of red lipstick, but hate how it looks when it smears, then you should keep some makeup remover handy. If the dreaded smear ever happens, use a cotton ball or tissue dipped in makeup remover to erase the stain. Now you won’t have to worry what color lipstick you choose for the day.
If a woman wants to give her breasts more lift for a special occasion, to fit better in a particular dress, or any other reason one could think of then a push up bra might be the answer. This easy clothing choice can easily make a woman feel more beautiful.
Try to use an eye pencil instead of liquid eyeliner if you can. Eye pencils give a less dramatic look, while liquid eyeliner may be too much. If you have to use liquid eyeliner, make sure to pull your lid downward with one hand while applying it with your other hand.
After reading through all of that, do you still see beauty in the same way? Do you now see that it is so much more and that they are very simple things that you can add to your commute to help improve your appearance? It’s really not hard work and hours of getting ready. It’s, basically, whatever you make it.
