Simple Beauty Techniques

When you take time to apply proper beauty techniques and products, it really does show. It shows that you care about proper application and that you want to look your “your best.” That is very admirable. As with any other skill set, you can always add and improve. Below are some tips to help.

Lightly spray your face with a hydrating mist to make your makeup last longer. The mist will help set your makeup, keep it looking fresh and give you that just done makeup look for hours. This is great for keeping your makeup in place for those long days at work or nights out with friends.

Moisturizing your facial skin is very important. Having greasy or oily skin doesn’t necessarily mean your skin is well moisturized, so make sure you still use a daily lotion. During the day, make sure that your moisturizer contains an SPF rating.

Eyeliner can add impact in a way that few products can. Steady your elbow on the table to avoid making mistakes, then use an eye pencil with a dull point to draw on a series of small dashes across the upper lash line. Use a smudging tool or sponge to blend the dashes to create a single line.

Exfoliate your face and neck at least 2 times a week. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and bring new skin cells to the surface. This will make you look healthy and refreshed when you do this, but you should avoid doing it too much because it can irritate your face.

To make small eyes appear larger, try lining your lower waterline with a white or peach colored eyeliner. By lightening the color of your waterline so it blends better with the white part of your eye, you can create the illusion that your eyes are larger and brighter than they really are.

You do not need to spend a lot of money on a fancy deep conditioning mask. There are many recipes you can make at home that include foods filled with nutrients that are great for your hair. A great one includes mashed strawberries and enough mayonnaise to make a spreadable paste. Leave it in your wet hair for 10 minutes and rinse.

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 are using shimmer, highlight the places light will hit. When used correctly, it causes a look of brightness. Use highlighter on the higher, more defining areas of your face. For example, you could highlight brows, nose and cheekbones. Follow with a loose dusting of face powder.

You have the tools, the products, and the skill set, to apply these tips in an aesthetically pleasing manner. Fabulous! The above tips were constructed to add to your personal regimen, as you are never done learning or improving. You may have even found a new “regular” or favorite for yourself.
