Well, you've decided to get into beauty. Pretty exciting, eh? Well, except for the fact that there are so many techniques and products that you have no clue where to start.
Disposable mascara wands, which are often known by makeup artists as "spoolies," are a cheap and effective tool for your makeup kit. These tiny brushes are useful to break up clumps in the lashes and brush off excess mascara without spoiling your makeup. In a pinch, they can also be used to groom your eyebrows. They should be disposed of after each use.
If you are a balding man, it may be time to try hair regrowth products. Many women find balding to be unattractive, and if you have the possibility to regrow your hair, then it is worth the effort. Many of these products are not prohibitively expensive, so they are worth a try.
Anytime you use shimmer, it's important to apply it lightly and only apply it in the areas where light is going to hit it. This will create a nice glowing effect. Aim for higher parts of your facial area with highlighters, such as cheekbones, brows, and your nose. Finally, set it in place with loose powder layers.
Get your sleep to keep yourself looking beautiful. Do not underestimate the power of scarce sleep to age your face, and your body. You need from six to eight hours of sleep a night to rejuvenate your body, skin, and brain. All are important elements in your overall personal health.
When applying winged eyeliner, extend the line at the outer edge of your eye so that it follows the natural curve of your lower lash line. The eyeliner should be thickest at the outer corner of your eye and then taper to a point at the tip of the wing.
To brighten your skin, try making homemade face masks. Face masks can typically be made from things you have around your house and will give your skin a lovely, natural glow. Look for mask recipes with ingredients like tomato juice, sandlewood powder, or oatmeal. All of these things are great for your face!
Foundation under the makeup cap makes a great concealer. You can use any extra foundation that you have as a short fix to this issue. This is a great concealer because it covers up imperfections due to the thickness of the makeup.
Bump up your hair color. If you have dyed your hair and the results aren't as dramatic as you like you can fix this by adding a box of hair coloring to your shampoo. Lather it into your hair and let it set for 5 minutes, then rinse it out.
For an inexpensive, spa-like facial just lean yourself over a bowl of steaming hot water! Cover or wrap up your hair, fill any container with really hot water and allow the steam to open and clear your pores! It is soothing and stimulating and very cost effective. Follow up with cold water to close and refresh pores, then add moisturizer!
To give yourself an instant facelift, just apply a streak of blush along the top of your cheeks. The color will draw the eye upward, giving your face a tighter, more youthful appearance. If you have pale skin, you'll get the best effect from a pale pink. Those with darker skin should select rosy shades.
