Many careers require you to be good-looking these days, but knowing that and making it happen are two different things. This article can help you by enhancing your natural beauty.
For those days when you have skimped on sleep the previous night and it shows in your eyes, skip lining or applying mascara to your lower lash line. Put the focus on your lids and upper lashes, and you are less likely to accentuate dark circles, making you look even more tired.
If you want to give your nails the best treatment possible, make sure you avoid filing them in more than one direction. Using multiple directions when you file introduces stress to your nails and can cause fractures and breakage. Restricting yourself to one direction will improve your nails’ overall health and make them stronger.
If you ever get an over-glow shine in a club from all that dancing, the quickest remedy is their cheap toilet paper! Believe it or not the rough and coarse paper is a great blotter for oily skin! Just swipe off a square and press firmly to the oily areas on your face and presto, instant gorgeous!
To whiten and brighten your teeth, add a little baking soda to your toothbrush once a week. Just sprinkle a little baking soda in the palm of your hand, dampen your toothbrush and press the bristles into the baking soda, add toothpaste and brush your teeth as usual. Don’t do this more than once a week since baking soda can be hard on your tooth enamel if overused.
To make your lips look bigger, apply shimmery white eyeshadow just above the cupid’s bow in the center of your top lip. Highlighting this area of your lips so that it catches and reflects the light helps to create the illusion that your upper lip is fuller than it really is.
If you have woken up with splotchy, irritated or puffy skin, then look to tea bags for a cure. No, not for drinking in this case, but to dab on the problem areas. Use a tea bag of green tea that has been steeped for a minute or two and cooled. You then dab it on your face, and let the natural antioxidants in the tea reduce the inflammation.
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.
If you are fighting an irritating, itchy and flaky scalp, you can use yogurt to remove flakes and keep your scalp itch-free. Simply massage a plain Greek or dairy yogurt into your scalp, then allow it to sit for no longer than 15 minutes. After you rinse, you should notice less flakes and itching.
A few drops of rich sweet almond oil can be a very useful addition to your skincare routine as well as for use in emergencies. Use it on dry skin to infuse heavy duty moisture, or apply it to your cuticles to make them noticeably softer before a manicure or pedicure.
Crush up an aspirin and put it in your shampoo to get rid of dandruff. This will save you money on buying pricey shampoos made for dandruff. The painkilling properties in aspirin will calm your dry scalp and get rid of dandruff problems while using your favorite shampoo and conditioner.
If you are taking over-the-counter decongestants and cold medicines, you should also pick up some skin cream and hair products that contain shea butter. Whipped shea butter is especially moisturizing and is easily absorbed by even the dryest hair and skin. Massage shea products into your skin or hair, then cover with a warm towel for ten minutes before rinsing off the excess.
