The art of beauty is so much more than just simply “putting your face on.” It takes a great deal of skill, attention to detail, and accuracy to really make those products work for your body the way they should. The tips below can help you improve your beauty skills.
You can use Vaseline to keep cuticles healthy. You will find that your nails grow more quickly as it feeds them. It will also improve their appearance. Usually you will see results right away as the Vaseline goes to work extremely fast.
Invest the extra money in a set of quality makeup brushes. Remember, these tools will be touching your face every single day. Spending more on these brushes can get you a set that will last for years. You should also pick up a bottle of brush cleaner, which is to be used regularly, at least twice per week. This removes dust and bacteria.
If you only have the time and money for a single beauty product, consider spending it on a flattering cheek color. A cream-based blush is easily applied using only the fingertips and can be thrown in your purse and applied quickly and with little to no effort at all. This is one item that you shouldn’t be shy about spending a little extra on.
To play up green or hazel eyes and create a candlelit effect, choose eye colors that highlight the gold and green tones in your irises. Colors such as lavender, pewter and purple, will enhance the gold and green in hazel eyes.
You can improve your skin if you drink more fresh fruit juice. Eating fresh produce is essential to a healthy body and skin. Drinking fruit juices is a simple way to get your servings of fruit. Dump the Pepsi and replace it with juice to make your skin look great.
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.
If you want to camouflage a pimple, rosacea, a rash or another reddish skin imperfection dab on a green concealer. While it looks strange in the package, the green neutralizes the red tones of irritated skin so you can apply your regular foundation and concealer without the redness showing through.
Use cheap toilet paper to blot oil off your face. Surprisingly enough, the coarseness of the paper aside, it can easily serve as an excellent blotter for skin that is oily. Just one square should be enough to remove the excess oil from your skin!
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.
If you have skin that tends to get shiny, you can do one of two things throughout the day. If you want to be fancy, you can buy a packet of face-blotting sheets. These smell wonderful and are impregnated with scented transparent powder. Or you can take a sheet of regular toilet paper and press, not rub, on the oily areas.
The art of beauty is one that can be enjoyed by everyone, but only those very serious into it will try to perfect their perfect beauty techniques every chance that they get. Now with more beauty knowledge to add to your “bag of tricks,” you can easily become great at it too.
