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.
Gently brush your lips with a soft toothbrush. This will help you remove dead skin cells from your lips and make them soft. You should then apply Vaseline or another type of lip balm to moisturize your lips and keep them soft. You can do this every day or every other day.
If you have fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and forehead, you should look for cosmetics with light-reflecting particles. These products, which are just more matte than shimmery, can reflect light in a way that appears to make the fine lines simply disappear. You can use this trick all over your face, or just in your laugh lines.
The value of brushing your hair frequently cannot be underestimated. By brushing it frequently you help distribute the oils in your scalp, just as when you brush a dogs fur, it distributes their oils. So, by brushing frequently you help evenly distribute the oils, vitamins, and minerals throughout your hair, helping it stay healthy as a whole.
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.
In order to make your teeth look whiter, use lipstick with cool, blue undertones. Lipsticks with warm, orange-based undertones accentuate the natural yellow color of your teeth, making them look yellower. Lipsticks with cool, blue-based undertones, on the other hand, will make your teeth look whiter. For the greatest impact, choose a bright red lipstick with blue undertones.
Remember that drinking plenty of pure water is one of the best ways to stay beautiful. It cleanses your system and helps keep your skin moisturized, your eyes bright, and your joints well padded and flexible. Pure water can be considered a “fountain of youth”. Enjoying plenty of it will keep you beautiful throughout your life.
Remember that fragrance rises. Scents rise. When applying perfume or scented body mist, put it lower on your body. Do not apply too much by putting a little everywhere. Just apply a little around your ankles. The scent will rise without being as overpowering as some perfumes tend to be.
Make sure that your blush and your lip color are in harmony. If you are using blush, it is important to make sure that it matches the color you are using for your lips. Pink should be with pink, red with red, etc. If the colors vary too greatly from one another, they will clash terribly.
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.
To hide purplish under-eye circles, try a yellow concealer. The yellow helps to cancel out the purple, leaving a smooth palette for applying your foundation. A thin layer of creamy yellow concealer also makes a great primer layer for your eyeshadow, because it minimizes the appearance of capillaries and helps the shadow stick.
Smooth lotion over hair to reduce the static. If you find yourself out with nothing to use, grab the hand lotion you keep in your purse. Take a little bit and rub the palm of your hands together slightly, then run through your hair. This is a quick and easy fix.
You’ve heard it’s important to exfoliate, but you don’t need to spend a lot of money on expensive loofah bath mitts or scrubs. Any drugstore, grocery store, or dollar store sells inexpensive kitchen sponge/scrubbers (where the rough side is green and the sponge side is yellow). These sponges work great for body exfoliation – but please don’t use the green side on your face.
Skin care is vital if you want to maintain confidence and swagger. Make sure you use a defoliation in order to eliminate dead skin. In addition, use a moisturizer in order to improve the elasticity of your skin. It is also good to rub a quality lotion into your skin at least once or twice per day.
It is not uncommon for women to get stuck in a look that makes them feel comfortable. There’s nothing wrong with that, if that’s what you like. If you are not satisfied, there is nothing wrong with getting assistance.
Before using any kind of eyelash glue around your eyes, test it on the inside of your arm twenty-four hours before you are planning to apply it to your eyes. This is the best way to test for allergies and can help you avoid having your eyes swell shut from an allergic reaction.
Did you get a look at yourself in a public mirror and notice how oily your skin looks? Don’t fret. Tear off a corner of toilet paper, and dab it on your skin to soak up the oil and shine. The hard toilet paper is an excellent blotter, and you look picture perfect again.
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.
