Steam your face. You can do this by placing your face over a hot bowl of water with a towel over your head. This will open up your pores and draw out impurities and bacteria. You should clean your face, then rinse it with cold water so you close your pores back up.
If you feel your face is too square, soften the angles with a creamy coral or rose blush, applied lightly and blended well. Use the blush on your cheeks, applying it with your fingers. Then fan it out toward your temples in a soft, tugging motion.
Before applying mascara, use an eyelash curler to curl your eyelashes. This increases their perceived length and brightens your eyes. Starting at the base of your lashes, squeeze the eyelash curler and hold it for a second. The next step is to move the curler further away from the base of your lashes and repeat the process. This will help give a natural curve rather than a sharp angle.
Many beauty products are better kept in your refrigerator. This is most important in the summer months. Keeping toners, lotions and oils refrigerated can allow you to use them even in a heatwave. Applying cool moisturizer or toner will also feel good on your skin, especially during a heat wave.
If you have the money for it, try to have two of each beauty item you use. You should keep them somewhere you can get to them easy. This way, you’ll always be prepared for any situation that might require a touch-up.
Keep your makeup light and simple. If you put on too much makeup you can stress your skin, and make yourself look older than you are. The best beauty is often the least complicated. Keep your routine to a quality moisturizer, followed with lip gloss and a good mascara.
Filing your nails is a wonderful way of making them look healthy. When filing, it is important to only go in one direction. Doing this will make sure that you don’t get any breakage from causing stress to your nails. You also won’t have to deal with any hang nails that can snag.
A universal beauty standard for men and women is to properly groom your eyebrows. You must take care of your eyebrows and there should always be two of them. If they grow together or if they are too bushy, try trimming them so that you can enhance your beauty.
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.
Use liquid eye liner if you want a dramatic look. Your eyes can really dazzle and pop more with liquid eyeliner. Use a small eyeliner brush with an angled tip for a crisp, flaw-free line.
You don’t have to be a supermodel or a makeup artist to look and feel beautiful. Ultimately, if you feel good about yourself, it will show and that’s the most beautiful thing you can do. Just remember the tips in this article and you’ll be on your way to feeling confident and beautiful.
