Any human face can be a beautiful thing. Really, it can be. Even you are aged, or you lack the so-called classic good looks, there is much that you can do to look good. To start learning some basics as to how to make this happen for you, refer to the tips below.
Check for allergies prior to applying fake eyelashes. Try testing the glue by placing it on your arm, and see if there are any allergic reactions. Be sure to cover the area being tested.
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.
Use heat activated products when you are going to be using a heating tool to straighten or curl on your hair. Shampoo, conditioner and other styling products can easily be obtained in a ‘heat-activated’ formula. Dry hair and split ends can result from using these styling tools daily. Heat-activated products will give your hair protection from the heat and leave it soft and shiny.

Use hydrogen peroxide to cure yellowed nails. Nothing is beautiful about yellowing nails. To fix this problem, soak cotton in peroxide and then wipe each nail for several strokes. Let it sit on your nails for a few minutes. Rinse your nails, and admire the lack of yellow coloring.
Rosewater or cucumbers are great to erase dark circles under your eyes. They both have natural properties, which help cool off the eyes and also lighten the skin under them. You can also apply rosewater or cucumber juice to your eyes to relieve dark circles; simply wet cotton pads with the liquid and then put them over your eyes.
Choose your eyeshadow based on your eye color to make your eye makeup really pop. If your eyes are blue, shades of brown are the most flattering. For brown eyes, try purple shadows like lavender or plum. If your eyes are green, golden shades are very flattering, as are many shades from the brown family.
Smoking, besides being linked to a myriad of health problems, also has an extremely negative affect on the way you look. One of the best beauty tips is to never smoke a cigarette in your life, and if you are a smoker, stop immediately. Smoking prematurely ages the skin and causes wrinkles, it makes acne worse and it turns your teeth yellow.
If you wear your hair in a ponytail often, move the position of the ponytail around every so often to prevent hair breakage. Constant stress and friction in the same part of the hair shaft can weaken hair, but placing the elastic or rubber band in different positions prevents the same spots from being rubbed over and over.
A little beauty advice from leading makeup artists to look rested even when you aren’t is to avoid piling on the foundation.

If you are a makeup addict, designate the first day of each month as a “no makeup day.” This gives your face time to breathe, and helps maintain its health. You will feel refreshed after giving your skin a break.
While taking care of your appearance is something that is very important for a myriad of reasons it should never be done at the expense of your personality. This means that you shouldn’t forget your social life and your other interests in an attempt to give more time to take care of your physical appearance.
If your skin looks like it could use a wake-up, try this idea. Use a hot, damp washcloth (with a few drops of your favorite essential oil on it, or plain is fine too) and press it gently against your face for a minute. Finish with a splash of very cold water. The heat will improve your facial circulation and open your pores, while the cold water will tighten your skin and wake you up generally.
