Well, you’ve decided to get into beauty. Pretty exciting, eh? Well, except for the fact that there are so many techniques and products that you have no clue where to start. Don’t worry because beauty tips are here! Listed below are some tips that will help you so that you can create a successful beauty regimen.
Prior to applying any fake tan, make sure your skin is exfoliated. This will remove the old cells from the surface of your skin and give it a new smoothness. This will allow the faux tan to appear even and streak-free. It will also look more real and last longer for you.
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.
To keep feet looking beautiful, especially during the warmer, dryer summer months, try applying Vaseline to them every day. It will keep them smooth and soft. Then go get yourself a pedicure and a pair of brand new sassy sandals, and you’ll have the best looking feet of the season.
Always apply a heat protectant spray to your hair before using a curling iron, flat iron or hair dryer. Heat can damage your hair, leaving it brittle, dry and full of split ends. Just like their name implies, heat protectant sprays coat your hair to protect it from the heat. This allows it to stay smooth, sleek and shiny no matter how you choose to style your hair.
Pat moisturizer into your skin instead of rubbing it. Most people rub their moisturizer into their skin. This can actually disperse the moisturizer to different parts of your skin or even remove most of it entirely. Try patting it over your skin instead. Your skin will absorb it more evenly.
Keep some make-remover in your purse or make-up bag. Beauty gurus often use makeup remover wipes as a means to make quick corrections following the application of makeup. This will help you in a pinch, they are cheap and easy to use. Keeping the wipes handy will improve your routine.
If you have gorgeous eyelashes, it will help your appearance. Before applying mascara, give your lashes a lift with an eyelash curler. This will create a great curl that will attract attention.
To get a smoother look when applying your eyeshadow, apply primer first. Primer will give the eyeshadow an even surface and will create a smooth effect. It will also make your eyeshadow color look brighter and more vibrant. Be sure to choose a primer specifically designed for use on the eyes.
When going to the beach, use this trick to make your waist look narrower. With a white pencil liner, dot the shape of an egg on both sides, starting just below the rib cage. Then fill the egg area with a little self-tanner just one shade darker than your natural skin tone and blend it in.
Putting on your own nail polish can be very frustrating, especially when using your non-dominant hand. Next time, apply your normal two color coats and a topcoat in the evening (give the polish a few hours to dry before bedtime). Don’t worry too much if the polish gets on your cuticles. Then, in the morning, take a hot shower, and all the extra polish on your cuticles and skin will rub right off.
