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.
Remember to remove hair 24 hours prior to applying your fake tan. You can wax or shave, but be certain to do that more than a day afterwards. Waiting 24 hours makes it much more likely that your tan won’t have noticeable blemishes or rough spots.
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.
If you are looking for some individualized attention from a cosmetics salesperson, visit the mall or department store during the early morning or daytime during the week. If you go on the weekend, your consultant will not be able to give you a thorough assessment and unhurried cosmetics application.
If you need to hide an imperfection, use a touch of pink lipstick. The trick is by applying the lipstick to your lips, you will draw attention away from those areas you want to hide. With the doubled effect of concealer and warm pink lips, no one will notice your blemish.
You should set aside some space in your fridge for beauty products. Make a special effort to do this in the summer when it is hot outside. If it is particularly hot outside you can keep your beauty products in the refrigerator. Your skin will appreciate the cooling relief you are giving it.
Many women like to use concealer under their foundation. If you’ve run out of concealer, or can’t find it, look inside the cap of your foundation. Liquid and lotion foundations tend to collect and thicken inside the cap and will work well in a pinch as an emergency concealer.
You may not have the time to do a full makeup job on your eyes. Should this be the case, try a quick smudgy eye look by combining a small amount of lip balm and a small amount of either mascara or eyeliner on the tip of your finger. Rub to an even consistency, then rub across your eyelids as close to the lashes as you can. A smudgy look is what you’re going for. Add two coats of mascara, and you’re ready to go.
If dramatic looks are what you crave, consider using liquid eyeliners. Liquid eyeliner allow you to be more creative, and gives your eyes some dazzle. Select a small brush with angled bristles if you want the lines to look more clean.
Do you know what the bumps on the back of the arms are called? It is a skin condition called keratosis pilaris. Air is much drier in the winter and it causes dry skin. Use a body scrub to exfoliate the area, and then put a little bit of a good moisturizer on it.
Make sure you keep some lotion handy for emergencies. No one ever knows in advance when their look is going to need a fast touch up. Using lotion can help correct dry skin quickly and can also help with hair that has become frizzy. Smooth your hair down after rubbing a tiny bit (a dab the size of pea) into your palm.
When you are filing your nails, be sure to only go in one direction. If you go back and forth you are sure to weaken the nail. The stress that this causes will damage the nail plate and make your nails more susceptible to breaking a lot more easily then they will if you go in one direction when filing.
Make any eye shadow bend to your will. If you are bored with the shadow choices in your beauty kit, it may be time to get creative. Try using a moistened brush to apply your shadow. You will find it brighter and more interesting than it was before. Try it as an eyeliner too.
In your refrigerator, you have the perfect ingredients for a mask which will tighten up your skin. A great do-it-yourself facial mask requires what you already have stocked in your refrigerator: eggs and lemon juice. Combine the whites of the egg and the lemon juice and then apply that to your skin for just five minutes. If you are planning a big event this is a good thing to do.
If you wear makeup each and every day, you may be wondering if this could be causing problems for your skin. The answer is no. As long as your face isn’t breaking out nor has red patches, then you are good. Remember to wash off the makeup each evening, so you are removing the bacteria that could possibly lead to irritation.
