Beauty can be a lot of fun and there are so many ways one can either improve upon their appearance or change their look entirely. So whether you need more techniques to make yourself appear more like what you want to look like or if you’re looking for something new, take a look at the tips below.
Keep your skin cells turning over with exfoliation. Dry or sensitive skin should be exfoliated between one and three times a week in order to reveal the healthy skin hiding underneath. Exfoliating helps to clear away dead skin and other debris.
New products called mattifying lotions are perfect for any makeup kit because they can be applied anywhere on the face that appears slick from excessive oils. These lotions often have a creamy or heavy gel consistency and can be applied without a mirror; it also provides a smooth foundation upon which your makeup can be applied.
Apply a moisturizer that is light before putting a fake tan on your skin. A fake tan will collect on spots of your skin that are dry. You should make sure you pay attention to your feet, elbows, knees and around your wrists. Apply lotion to these areas before applying a fake tanner.
Instead of simply applying lipstick directly to your lips from the tube, invest in a good lip brush. This allows you to create a more well-defined shape that does not smear or smudge around the mouth. Pucker up, then pull your finger through your lips to prevent any lipstick from smudging on your teeth.
Before putting on your favorite sandals for the summer season, take the time to moisturize your feet using Vaseline. Before bed, slather your feet with a thick layer of Vaseline and cover them with an old pair of socks. As you sleep, the Vaseline will penetrate thick, calloused skin, helping to eliminate cracks and dryness. The next morning when you remove the socks, your feet will be soft and supple so you can wear your favorite sandals with pride.
You can apply makeup to your wide-set eyes in a way that is very flattering and can make the eyes appear closer together. First, apply a dark brown or navy eyeliner to the inner corners of your eyes, then blend it with a sponge. Apply your eyeshadow at the inner corners, then blend well outward.
Keep your face looking beautiful and young by investing in an appointment with a board certified dermatologist or doctor. Many spa treatments that are marketed as facials can contain unnecessary ingredients, harmful substances, and harsh applications that can easily leave your skin damaged and in worse shape than before. A dermatologist’s goal is to help you; a spa employee’s goal is to sell more products.
Beauty can be a very effective tool to have in your arsenal for whatever needs you may have. You may already have a defined look and want to know how to save time or you may want to learn something new for a fresh look. No matter your reasons, hopefully the tips above gave you some ideas.
