BTT – What Everyone Ought to Know About Beauty

Learning about beauty can be very overwhelming, but just like anything else, it can also be very easily researched, taught, and learned. Now that you have found this list of tips, hopefully, you can become more informed when it comes to beauty so that you can refine your methods and create a proper beauty regimen for yourself.

If you have overly round eyes, you can elongate them by adjusting your eyeliner application. The outer two-thirds of your lower and upper lash lines should be lined with a dark brown liner. The two lines should meet at the outer corner of each eye. Finally, apply two coats of mascara to your outer upper lashes.

Use a brow gel to stimulate growth in sparse eyebrows. Whether you have naturally sparse brows or got a little overzealous with the tweezers, a brow gel can help grow hair back. Look for one that has added protein. In the meantime, use fillers to shade the thin areas.

For beautiful hair, add oil to your hair care routine. You can make your hair shinier, less frizzy, and mask graying by adding a few drops of oil to your hair every morning. Good oils to use are castor, rosemary, or sesame oils. All of them are cost-effective and widely available.

To give your hair more volume, consider trying a new haircut with layers. Layers are one of the most effective ways to add volume to fine limp hair. Even if you like to wear your hair long, you can still have your stylist cut long layers into the top for a major volume boost.

Save money by trimming your own bangs at home. To start with, get yourself some proper scissors. Make sure to get a quality pair of handy haircutting scissors. It is best to trim your bangs dry and most people do best by dividing the bangs into three sections, holding the hair up in a twist, and taking small diagonal snips so that the cuts aren’t straight. Drop the twist, see how you look, and repeat until it’s short enough for your liking.

Ran out of concealer? No problem,  your foundation can save the day. Check the cap of your foundation, there should be a thicker, more condensed collection of foundation in there which you can use in a pinch in place of your regular concealer. Simply dab your fingertip in the cap and pat the foundation under the eyes or over any other blemish!

Try to keep a makeup-free face at least one day a month. Your skin needs the opportunity to breathe. You will feel refreshed after giving your skin a break.

If you have skin that tends to get shiny, you can do one of two things throughout the day. If you want to be fancy, you can buy a packet of face-blotting sheets. These smell wonderful and are impregnated with scented transparent powder. Or you can take a sheet of regular toilet paper and press, not rub, on the oily areas.

As you get older, exfoliation becomes more and more important to your skin. Use a glycolic acid-rich cream, facial scrub, or even a retinoid gel to slough off the top layer of dead skin cells and to reveal the fresh, radiant new skin cells beneath. This can be done three to four times per week for the best effect.

Take care to prepare your skin by removing unwanted hair or stubble the day before you plan to apply your faux tan. Whether you decide to wax or shave you should do it 24 hours prior to tanning to ensure positive results. That way, your skin will be smooth and any inflammation from the hair removal process will have subsided.

Do not forget your hands need to be pampered too. Hands are often overlooked in beauty treatments. That is why it is said, if you want to know someone’s age, check their hands. In addition to daily treatment with lotion or cream, you should exfoliate your hands once a week.

Vegetables are good for your skin, not just to eat them for the health benefits but also as beauty treatments directly applied on your skin. Try cool cucumbers or sliced potato on your eyes to relieve puffiness and redness. Use water left from boiling cabbage, broccoli, or kale for a healthy skin toner.

Not that bad, correct? Like anything else, the world of beauty is vast and has a wealth of information available on it. Sometimes you just need a little hint as to where to begin with it, so that you can “jump right in”. Hopefully, you have received that from the above tips.
