Welcome to the world of beauty! It is a very big world, complete with all kinds of tools, accessories, and so much more. The fact that beauty is a very personal thing, can make it seem a bit impossible to find what will work for you. The tips below can help give you some suggestions.
If you have a hard time getting your eyeliner to stay put, you can apply eyeshadow after you put on eyeliner. You should lightly put your shadow over your eyeliner with a cotton ball. This will seal the application of eyeliner and it will last longer and not run.
New products called mattifying lotions are perfect for any makeup kit because they can be applied anywhere on the face that appears slick from excessive oils. These lotions often have a creamy or heavy gel consistency and can be applied without a mirror; it also provides a smooth foundation upon which your makeup can be applied.
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 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.
To help your eyeliner last all day, apply a thin layer of eyeshadow in a matching color over the top of it. Most eyeliners have a tendency to fade or run throughout the day. This is particularly true for oil-based eyeliner pencils. You can eliminate this problem by brushing a layer of matching eyeshadow directly over the top of the eyeliner using a thin makeup brush. This helps to set it so it stays in place all day.
Use cocoa butter on stretchmarks and scars. Cocoa butter is a beauty treatment with roots in ancient times. It has long been known to normalize skin-tone, and to make your skin more resilient. Cocoa butter has a small price-tag, and is available almost anywhere you can buy lotions or creams.
People who have fair skin and hair need a little extra tinting to bring out definition. The best is to use eyebrow tinting, this will bring out the color of your eyebrows as well as add an extra pop to your eyes. Sometimes the subtle little things can make the most difference.
Use Vaseline on the outer edges of your eyes to make a shield. This will act as a waterproof barrier and will keep your makeup on around your eyes. This is especially good to use if you find your eyes are watery because of wind or any other factor.
Make sure that you do not use glue that gives you an allergic reaction when applying eyelashes. To find out if you are allergic, apply a small amount of eyelash glue to your arm. Leave this for at least a day! Take note of whether you have any rashes. If not, then you are good to go.
To get the best results when bronzing your face, apply the bronzer only to your face’s higher planes. Apply the bronzer to your cheekbones, at the top of your nose and at the top corners of your forehead. This will give you a natural glow that will help illuminate your best features.
If you enjoy wearing makeup daily, make sure there is no less than one day monthly when you wear none. This gives your face time to breathe and it allows it to stay healthy. You will feel refreshed after giving your skin a break.
If you cry and are concerned about your mascara running, try to catch the tears with a tissue before they ruin your makeup. This will result in minimal damage to your makeup.
If you find that the nail polish that you thought was the perfect color is not the color that you wanted when you get it on your nails, consider adding a bit of nail polish remover to the bottle. It will change the color a bit and make it a little lighter.
To help you pluck your eyebrows, you want to hold the tweezers in a vertical position against the side of your nose. You then move the tweezers along your eyebrows, and you will see very easily where your arch should start and stop. This will ensure that you stay with the natural shape of your eyebrows.
Use a base coat, two layers of polish and a top coat to maximize the length of time that your nail polish will look great. This will give you the look of a professional manicure and keeps the varnish on the nail much longer than what one coat of polish would.
If you have your favorite perfume that you wish you could have the lotion to match, but just don’t want to have to pay the price for it, then make your own. All you need do is add a few drops of your favorite fragrance into any lotion that is scent-free. You can then rub it in and enjoy the resulting scent for the rest of your day.
