If you’re new to beauty, there are a lot of things to help you on the path to becoming beautiful. In this article, you will find many tricks to help you on your way to becoming beautiful.
Imperfections, such as pimples, can be really distracting. A popular home remedy for pimples is to apply a small dab of toothpaste on it. Keep the toothpaste on for around ten minutes. Using this technique should reduce the size of the pimple drastically.
If you have fine lines around your eyes, mouth, and forehead, you should look for cosmetics with light-reflecting particles. These products, which are just more matte than shimmery, can reflect light in a way that appears to make the fine lines simply disappear. You can use this trick all over your face, or just in your laugh lines.
Creamy rose and coral colored blushes work well on square shaped faces to soften the angles. Apply the blush to your cheeks with your fingers and gently fan the color towards your temples.
Add volume to your hair. You can easily do this by blow drying your hair upside-down for at least 10 minutes. When your hair is dry, give it a cool blast of air to set the volume in. You can make your hair have more bounce and volume just by doing this.
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.
Let your hair cool off after blow drying it. Letting your hair cool will help set your hair style. If your hair has a hard time holding any style try using hairspray while blow drying it, using curling irons or hot rollers. This will ensure your hairstyle stays put.
If you have problems keeping wild and unruly brows tamed, you can keep them under control by spraying a brow brush with a bit of hairspray or clear brow gel, then gently combing your brows into place. For added shaping, you can even use a very small dab of Vaseline.
Curl your lashes with an eyelash curler prior to applying mascara. Curling your eyelashes can increase their perceived length and can add vitality to your eyes, meaning you’ll be perceived as younger and ready to face the day. You want to start near your lash base by squeezing the eyelash curler. Hold it steady for just a second. Slowly move toward the front of your lashes, in a smooth motion, then squeeze once more. This should result in a pleasing and natural looking curve.
To make close set eyes appear further apart, apply your eye makeup so it is heaver on the outer edges of your eyes. Use light eyeshadow on the inner half of your eyes and darker shadow on the outer half, blending the two together seamlessly in the middle. Then, to finish off the look, apply your eyeliner and mascara so that it is heavier at the outer corner. This will give the illusion that your eyes are set further apart.
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.
To make your eyelashes look thicker, dust them with a coat of loose powder before applying your mascara. Use a small brush to apply a thin layer of translucent powder to your eyelashes, taking care not to get the powder in your eyes. Follow up with a coat of your favorite mascara over the top of the powder.
Tone down a lipstick that is too bold or bright. A great way to make an overly pigmented shade easier on the eyes is to put some on the back of your hand, dab it with foundation, mix, and apply to lips. Your new shade should now be a better match for your tone.
If you have an overly pale appearance this can be due to iron deficiency. Take a daily iron supplement or eat a spoonful of iron-rich manuka honey. This will help you look healthier and give your skin a natural glow.
If you like how you look with powdered mineral makeup yet know that it makes you itch, try looking for a formula free of bismuth oxychloride. Find a type that does not contain this ingredient, which is a common irritant.
You’ve heard it’s important to exfoliate, but you don’t need to spend a lot of money on expensive loofah bath mitts or scrubs. Any drugstore, grocery store, or dollar store sells inexpensive kitchen sponge/scrubbers (where the rough side is green and the sponge side is yellow). These sponges work great for body exfoliation – but please don’t use the green side on your face.
Something to remember in the world of beauty is no two people judge beauty the same way. If you live a healthy life by giving loving care to your body, mind and spirit, the results will be self-evident. Ignore haters and know that you’re beautiful, inside and out!
This simple beauty advice can transform your skin. When you heed these suggestions, you will not be new to the world of beauty; you will know what to do.
