When people think of someone that is beautiful, many times it is based on inner beauty as well as outer beauty. Both of these things are in your control to change. You really need to have both to look your best. Here are some tips to get you started on your own personal beauty adventure.
Brighten up your eyes with this natural look: apply a light, neutral-colored eye shadow to your entire upper eyelid. Look for sand, khaki, beige, or fawn colors. This will neutralize any redness on your lids, which can make you appear older and tired. Add drama by smudging a darker shade on the lids just in the crease.
Use a gel or creme blush instead of powder. This type of blush gives your skin a glowing and healthy look. Gel and creme blushes are more transparent and blend more evenly than regular powder blush. You should rub this blush on your cheeks and blend upwards for a flawless finish.
It is important to keep all of your makeup pencils sharp. These makeup products are at their cleanest when they are sharpened. If you freeze them before sharpening, you will have an easier time.
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.
Use a deep conditioner at least once a week for extra soft and healthy hair. Pick one day of the week to take a bath and read a magazine or listen to music while the deep conditioner soaks into your hair before rinsing. Many hair product lines include a matching deep conditioner.
Your beauty routine should include at least one glass of milk each day. Research has proven that daily milk is beneficial to your skin, bones and body. Its protein content is great for building muscle. It also assists in controlling your weight. Milk is an affordable beauty solution.
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.
Even the most skilled makeup artist sometimes has difficulty applying lipstick neatly. After you have applied it, use a cleanup brush that has been dipped in powder to place the powder all along the lip outline. Next, use a disposable wedge sponge to blot away any excess powder that may be left.
You can make a DIY mouthwash by mixing peppermint oil with purified water. Only use a drop of the oil for every ounce of water. Boil the water, then measure your oil into a glass container that is large enough to hold your mixture. The next step is to add the boiling water. Use a cloth, such as a washcloth, to cover it and let it cool down. Pour the mixture into a sterile bottle and tightly screw on the lid. There you have it, your own, ready to use, bottle of homemade mouthwash.
Avoid commercial “body butters” that contain chemicals, dyes and additives. All natural walnut oil or peanut oil make wonderful all-over body moisturizers. They are very inexpensive and are scent free. If you want scent, you can add the essential oil of your choice. After your bath, slather walnut or peanut oil on lavishly. Wrap up in an old terry-cloth robe and curl up with a good book or a movie while your moisture treatment soaks in.
Remove the arch from your eyebrows if you have a problem with dark circles under your eyes. The arch in your eyebrows can create a circular look around your eyes. This can exaggerate any dark circles you might already have. To remedy this, just tweeze your eyebrows so that they are straighter.
To keep your hair from tangling while you sleep, use a silk pillowcase! A silk pillowcase is gentle on your hair and will allow it to lay smoothly on the pillow as you rest. You’ll wake up with your hair looking great! If you don’t have a silk pillowcase, you can lay a silk scarf across the pillow.
