Beauty is not just something you are born with. In fact, the role that genetics play in your appearance is quite small. The plain truth is that looking good is often just a matter of working hard to look your best. In this article, you can find some fresh ideas for getting great beauty results with less effort.
For a quick-fix, keep an empty jar filled with face moisturizer in your purse or car. You can put this in your purse or travel bag. When your skin starts drying up, apply a drop of moisturizer.
One of the most affordable tools to include in your makeup case is the disposable triangular facial sponge. Dampen the sponge, then use it to help apply your facial makeup more smoothly. You can also use it to smooth down flaky skin patches all over the face, or even to soften makeup that appears to be caked-on.
An application of white eyeshadow to the area above the middle of your upper lip will make the lips appear larger than they really are. This will give you a highlight so that the light catches it and your upper lip will seem a bit fuller.
Splashing cold water on your face can help reduce the frequency and prevalence of pimples. This is because it shrinks the size of your pores, making it less likely and less possible for them to get clogged, and clogging usually results in the appearance of a pimple. So to keep yourself pimple free, splash cold water!
If you have a square face you can use a rose or coral brush to make it more soft looking. Try applying your blush on the apples of your cheeks and fanning it out towards temples.
Emphasize the sharpness of your cheekbones by applying a shade of powder blush that is one shade deeper than your normal cheek color product. Using a blush brush, dab on a spot of the powder in the hollows of your cheeks just under the cheekbones. Remove excess powder, then blend in a circular motion.
Mix your foundation with a moisturizer, as it will stretch the life of your foundation. It will help you achieve a more “natural” look as well as giving your face a little extra protection.
Before applying mascara, use an eyelash curler to curl your eyelashes. Curling your eyelashes can make them look longer and it can also make your eyes look younger too. To use an eyelash curler correctly, surround the root of your lashes with the curler and clamp down for a few seconds. Then, squeeze it again when moving it toward your lashes’ end. This gives a nice natural curve.
Use a soft brush to massage your skin before your shower to stimulate the oil glands and make it more healthy and moisturized. Brush gently, in circles, starting with the feet and working your way upward. Complete the treatment with a shower using a mild soap.
For an inexpensive, spa-like facial just lean yourself over a bowl of steaming hot water! Cover or wrap up your hair, fill any container with really hot water and allow the steam to open and clear your pores! It is soothing and stimulating and very cost effective. Follow up with cold water to close and refresh pores, then add moisturizer!
To get the best results when bronzing your face, apply the bronzer only to your face’s higher planes. Apply the bronzer to your cheekbones, at the top of your nose and at the top corners of your forehead. This will give you a natural glow that will help illuminate your best features.
To help your lip gloss last longer, apply lip liner first. Fill in your whole lip with the liner before putting on your gloss. With the liner applied, the gloss will have something to stick to, which will help it stay on all day long. For the best effect, use a liner close to the natural color of your lip.
