Helpful Tips To Extend The Life Of Your Makeup
Beauty is a well sought after goal! There is a lot of information and products available to achieve an ideal look. Unfortunately, not all have the same resources to get the assistance they want. This article has some handy tips and tricks to help you enhance your beauty and help extend the life of some of your makeup.
Exfoliate your face and neck at least 2 times a week. Exfoliating helps remove dead skin cells and bring new skin cells to the surface. This will make you look healthy and refreshed when you do this, but you should avoid doing it too much because it can irritate your face.
Use a misting spray to set makeup. After you are finished fully making up your face, lightly mist yourself with a sprayer. This will set your makeup, keeping it in place longer before requiring you to touch it up. This is perfect for long nights out or events such as weddings.
Use wipes to clear away makeup. Wipes that help with cosmetics removal should be an important part of your beauty regimen. You’ll need to have them at your fingertips in case you make an error when applying your makeup. These wipes are also inexpensive, so you can repair imperfections quickly and efficiently. Keeping the wipes handy will improve your routine.
To get even more mileage out of your favorite eye gel, keep it in the refrigerator! The ingredients in eye gel work hard to restore and protect the delicate skin around your eyes and keeping it cold enhances the refreshment factor ten fold! The cold will also work immediately to reduce that dreadful puffiness!
Stock up on colors you like. Once you have found a hair color, lipstick, foundation…etc. that you like, be sure to buy an extra box or two of it to keep at home. That way, you will never be out of the color you like if they happen to run out of it at the local drugstore or beauty center.
You can use avocado to soften your skin as well as make guacamole! Just mash a ripe avocado, with skin and pit removed. Put this all over your skin and leave it on for around twenty minutes. Avocado is a natural moisturizer, so after a treatment using it, your skin is luxuriously soft.
Double up to extend the life of your lipstick. In order to keep lipstick on for an extended period of time, apply a lipstick made for chap lips over it. That’s right two lipsticks! One is for color – one is for the top coat! Not only does lipstick made for chap lips help to heal dry and cracked lips, but it helps protect the color below that the other lipstick gives your lips. Be sure to apply just a small coating of it over your lipstick.
Bronzing lotion? Give your skin a hint of color and shimmer by mixing a touch of bronzer with your favorite body lotion. This is a great way to highlight your arms, legs, chest and other areas for holiday parties or other events without throwing away time, money, and your skin’s health in a tanning bed.
Thin your nail polish to extend life. If your nail polish is becoming thick and sticky, consider adding a little nail polish remover to the bottle. You should just put a little then put the lid back on and shake it up. You’ll be able to get another application or two from the nail polish. You can also make your nail polish last longer and make your nails look like you just had a manicure and last longer by using a base coat, 2 coats of color and a top coat. This will provide your nails with a glossy look that will last for at least a few weeks.
Time your trips to the beauty counter. 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.
Olive oil can be used for more than just cooking. To help increase the elasticity of skin and thereby reduce the chances of stretch marks, depend on olive oil! Everyone has olive oil in the kitchen and every week you need to bring it in the bathroom and use it in place of your regular moisturizer after showering. Massage it well into your stomach, buttocks and thighs for improved skin strength and to keep those nasty stretch marks away!
Touch up your roots with mascara. If you have grey hair dyed dark, and your roots are beginning to show, try putting the same color mascara as your dyed hair. If your hair is dyed a lighter color such as blond, spray some hairspray on the roots and use a bit of bronze or gold-colored eyeshadow. Or, you can try one of the root color-combs available at local beauty supply stores.
At home face mask recipe. Surprisingly, the oldest and easiest beauty methods are typically the most effective ones. For instance, a sudden way of tightening up your face is using a mask made from lemon juice and egg whites. Mix a tablespoon of lemon juice with a couple egg whites and apply as a mask. Leave it on for about half an hour, then rinse and dry gently. Your face is going to look fresher and more lively.
No doubt, you appreciate some of the beauty tips and tricks found in today’s post! Unfortunately, everyone does not have the resources to get all of the beauty products available.
