If you’re new to beauty, there are a lot of things to help you on the path to becoming beautiful. The tips offered below can get you on your way to a more beautiful you.
Symmetry is the key to beauty. Keep this in mind at all times. Make your makeup, beard and mustache identical and symmetrical on both the right and left sides.
Apply a few tablespoons of sweet almond oil to your warm bath for a relaxing treat that will leave even the roughest, driest skin feeling supple and soft. You can also apply it sparingly to extremely dry and damaged hair – but only on the inch or so above the ends.
Eyeliner can add impact in a way that few products can. Steady your elbow on the table to avoid making mistakes, then use an eye pencil with a dull point to draw on a series of small dashes across the upper lash line. Use a smudging tool or sponge to blend the dashes to create a single line.
Your hair color should influence which cosmetic colors look the best on you. For example, if you are a brunette, you can use a dark mahogany eyeshadow as a multitasking tool. In a pinch, it can be used to fill in sparse eyebrows, line your upper lash line, and even cover gray roots on your hairline.
If you have problems keeping wild and unruly brows tamed, you can keep them under control by spraying a brow brush with a bit of hairspray or clear brow gel, then gently combing your brows into place. For added shaping, you can even use a very small dab of Vaseline.
Avoid refined foods as part of your daily beauty routine. Refined foods take away most of the nutrients that would naturally be found in a food. Often times the good things are replaced by chemicals and fortifiers. Your overall health will vastly improve, not just your skin, nails, and hair.
If you are looking for that natural shine from your eyebrows and lashes, petroleum jelly is a great tool to use. Apply some at bedtime, every single night. When you wake up, make sure to remember to wash it off. This will keep your eyelashes and brows shiny, all day long.
Beauty tip for tired eyes! Eye gel will help reduce the appearance of puffy or tired eyes. Keep this in the refrigerator, and use it for an extra boost if you are really tired. You can feel very tired without having to show it on your face. Just make sure to use the gel on a clean face.
Make a habit of utilizing Epsom salts. You can use Epsom salts for a laxative or to soothe your sore body. Mix them with water and lavender to create a paste. Apply it to troubled skin. Leave for several hours or even overnight. In the morning you will see improvement to your skin.
To boost your hair’s shine when you wash it in the sink or shower, give it a final rinse under really cold water, if you can stand it. The cold water helps to seal the hair’s cuticle, making your tresses look smoother, shinier, and less frizzy than rinsing with hot water.
If your skin looks like it could use a wake-up, try this idea. Use a hot, damp washcloth (with a few drops of your favorite essential oil on it, or plain is fine too) and press it gently against your face for a minute. Finish with a splash of very cold water. The heat will improve your facial circulation and open your pores, while the cold water will tighten your skin and wake you up generally.
It is important to exfoliate and shave before you use spray tanning products. Proper preparation of the skin before the application will allow the color to spread more evenly, and that gives your skin a more natural appearance.
If you find that the nail polish that you thought was the perfect color is not the color that you wanted when you get it on your nails, consider adding a bit of nail polish remover to the bottle. It will change the color a bit and make it a little lighter.
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.
The mouth is the ultimate attention getter. If you wear lipstick, know that the color you wear can work for or against you. Choose a color that compliments your skin and that is “in” for the season and you will look amazing. If you want to help your lipstick last longer, apply powder over the first coat and then reapply. If you don’t wear lipstick, make sure your lips are well hydrated and you regularly use chapstick. Chapped cracked lips will detract from your appearance.
