In the world of beauty products things have really changed and all ages are now interested in them. Nowadays, both men and women of all ages know how helpful beauty advice can be. Good genes is not the only thing involved in a nice appearance. Just a bit of effort can provide outstanding results.
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.
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.
You must always wash away all makeup prior to going to bed. Use warm water and a soft washcloth or a solution for taking off makeup. After that, simply cleanse your face as you normally would. Make-up left on your face can result in blemishes that are very unattractive.
For beautiful nails, put top coat on top of your nail polish every time. Topcoat will not only keep your nails looking shiny, it will extend the length of time between polishing. Avoid substituting clear nail polish for topcoat as it is not the same product, and will not provide the same benefit.
If you want better skin, brush your skin before you shower. Use a circular motion starting at your feet and working up to your head. Finish by rinsing with gentle soap under a warm shower.
Add plenty of fruits and vegetables to your diet to make your skin more beautiful. Eating more fruits and vegetables have benefits to every aspect of your health, not just to your skin. Raw food can not just make your skin beautiful and youthful, it can extend your life by years.
When you want the added beauty of curled lashes, and do not want to hassle with getting them to set, try this: before you use the curler, apply a thin coat of mascara to your lashes. Then while your lashes are still wet, use the curler. Doing this will allow you to curl your eyelashes faster and easier.
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.
To hide purplish under-eye circles, try a yellow concealer. The yellow helps to cancel out the purple, leaving a smooth palette for applying your foundation. A thin layer of creamy yellow concealer also makes a great primer layer for your eyeshadow, because it minimizes the appearance of capillaries and helps the shadow stick.
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.
Sunscreen is key to young and healthy skin. Some people only apply sunscreen during the summer, but if you are going to stave off wrinkles, you need to apply it year-round. The face and hands are particularly vulnerable to skin damage during the winter months.
By taking 10 minutes a week to care for your nails it will help your appearance greatly. This is especially true for men, who very often neglect their nails and cuticles. A little regular maintenance results in much-improved hands. At the very least, nails should be cleaned thoroughly; they should be moisturized; and the cuticles should be gently pushed back.
Cover up your roots. If you are in between trips to the hairdresser and your roots are showing cover them up with mascara. For lighter colored hair use a little extra hairspray and dust with a gold colored eyeshadow. This will cover up roots until you get your hair colored again.
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.
If you have skin that tends to get shiny, you can do one of two things throughout the day. If you want to be fancy, you can buy a packet of face-blotting sheets. These smell wonderful and are impregnated with scented transparent powder. Or you can take a sheet of regular toilet paper and press, not rub, on the oily areas.
Your quest for beauty should be a quest to find your best self, not outdo someone else. Don’t compete with others, but instead focus on becoming your most beautiful self. This is good to remember not only with regard to beauty, but in other areas of life, as well.
If you have grey hair dyed dark, and your roots are beginning to show, try putting the same color mascara as your dyed hair. If your hair is dyed a lighter color such as blond, spray some hairspray on the roots and use a bit of bronze or gold-colored eyeshadow. Or, you can try one of the root color-combs available at local beauty supply stores.
There is more to beauty than chance. Anyone can be more beautiful with some effort. You can improve your look, especially with sound advice. Hopefully, the ideas here can help you make the most of your effort and time spent on your looks.
