Fill an empty pot or a tiny jar with the moisturizer of your choice. Containers of this size can be easily carried wherever you go. When you feel your skin drying out, apply moisturizer to the affected areas of your face.
Sometimes skin blemishes, like pimples, can detract from our beauty at the most inopportune times. An effective home remedy for treating a pimple is to place a small dab of toothpaste on it. Don’t use the gel form – only regular toothpaste will work. Allow this to work for ten minutes or so. This will help clear the pimple up and gets rid of redness.
Allow your hair to dry naturally as much as you can to best protect it. Blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons wreck havoc with the natural moisturizers in your hair and drys out the scalp. If you must use a blow dryer, set it in the lowest, least damaging setting. Your hair will remain at its silky best for years to come.
If you plan on going out on the town immediately after work, you can use a big fluffy brush to add a nice powdery finish over any oily places. You can make your cheekbones have some emphasis with a gentle application of shimmery powder on your cheek temples.
It is important to use a skin moisturizer on the face. Having greasy or oily skin doesn’t necessarily mean your skin is well moisturized, so make sure you still use a daily lotion. Make sure to use one that has sunscreen in it.
If your skin is looking dull from the winter weather, add some moisturizer with a warm gold or pink undertone. Get that glowing, radiant effect by using a sponge to apply cosmetics to your brown bones and cheeks. Applied moderately, this undertone will blend in and look natural. If it looks shiny you have overdone it.
If you want your lips to look bigger, put some white eyeshadow that has has a shimmer right above the area called “cupid’s bow” in the middle of your upper lip. When you highlight that area, it reflects light and gives you the illusion of a fuller top lip.
If you want to restore the shine to your hair, you can actually use baking soda! Mix a little baking soda with your regular amount of shampoo. Then you need to just wash your hair like you usually do. Doing so will help restore your hair’s natural shine and luster.
Before you even apply mascara, make sure you have created the right shape for your eyelashes with an eyelash curler. This will make them look longer, and it will make your eyes appear alert and bright. When using an eyelash curler, start at the bottom of the lashes and squeeze for a single second. Open it, bring it to the end of your eyelashes and squeeze one more time. This provides a natural look.
Always properly wash your make-up off at night before you go to sleep. You can use a make-up remover or a washcloth of warm water. After, cleanse your face as you usually do. If you don’t remove your make-up, it can clog your pores.
Use shimmer lightly and only apply in the areas that will be hit by light. This will create a pleasant glowing effect. Highlighter should be used on the upper planes of the face like cheekbones, brows and nose.
A little bit of pink lipstick can go a long way towards hiding your trouble spots. Not that you should apply the lipstick to the actual problem, but because the pink lipstick usually draws attention to the lips and minimizes focus on other areas. If you use a quality concealer, and allow your lips to really stand out, your acne will be much less noticeable.
