Give coconut oil a try, instead of spending a lot of money on a expensive moisturizer. Coconut oil has many benefits, including wrinkle and fine line reduction, while making your skin smoother. Coconut oil can also, as a result of its anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties, be used to treat bothersome skin disorders such as acne, eczema and psoriasis.
Sometimes skin blemishes, like pimples, can detract from our beauty at the most inopportune times. When this happens to you, try blotting a drop of toothpaste on the area. Allow this to work for ten minutes or so. This will help dry up your pimple and make it disappear.
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.
It is important to keep all of your makeup pencils sharp. This will also help you keep them clean. When they’re cold, they sharpen easier, so put them in your freezer or refrigerator for ten minutes first.
If you suffer from red eyes, all the eyeshadow and liner in the world is not going to help you look better. Keep some eye drops in your purse. Use eye drops when your eyes are tired due to computer eyestrain, allergies or sun and wind exposure.
Paint your toenails before you go to bed. Make sure you have given your nail polish plenty of time to dry before going to bed. When you shower in the morning you can easily peel off any excess polish that you get on your toes for that perfect manicured look.
Give the glossy look a try; it is the one of the simplest ways to keep your lips beautiful and lusciously full. Outline the perimeter of your lips to give a more vibrant tone to your lip area. Then use a lighter shade on top of that.
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.
To avoid having your mascara ruined when you cry, angle your head as a way to get your tears to fall in such a way that they don’t run downward. This will go a long way in minimizing how much your makeup is affected by your tears.
To get the best results from your styling products, don’t apply them to soaking wet hair. The water in your hair will dilute the products, rendering them less effective. Before applying any products, remove as much excess water from your hair as you can. You’ll see a change in how your products work immediately.
You may not have stuck your finger in an electrical socket, but your hair frizzes might suggest you had. To tame these nasty beasts, you will want to add moisture to your hair. Stay away from hairspray as it has alcohol that dries the hair. Apply hair serum to damp hair to lock in the moisture, and keep uncontrolled hair at bay.
When your nail polish is running out, add a few drops of remover to extend the life. You will then need to shake it thoroughly and apply it to your nails in the same fashion as you normally would. You may find the color slightly lighter or more translucent, but it should still be mostly the same.
If you have problem skin, a visit to the dermatologist for a chemical treatment may be your answer. Chemical peels help get rid of dead skin cells, along with boosting skin regeneration by burning your top skin layer. This process will make your skin look cleaner and rejuvenated.
If you have ever had the problem of your eyeliner smearing or crumbling as you try to apply it, try putting it in the freezer for about 15 minutes before you need to use it. This will firm up the tip so the eyeliner goes on smoothly, and you won’t have the resulting crumbles or smears.
So you like the smell of your fancy soap, and just don’t have the heart to use those pretty bars in your bath or shower? Just put them in your underwear or shirt drawer to capture those scents you love. You will be smelling fresh and clean all day long.
