BTT – Is There A Beauty Secret?
Although it is a wonderful idea that beauty exists in the eye of the beholder, each of us wants to look as beautiful as possible not just in our eyes, but in the eyes of others as well. As common as it seems, many people are unfamiliar with the basics of beauty. This article provides several tips that you can apply to help put on your best face.
Secret #1 – Allow your hair to air dry as frequently as you can in order to protect it from heat damage. Blow dryers, straighteners and curling irons wreck havoc with the natural moisturizers in your hair and drys out the scalp. If you do have to use a blow dryer, put it on a low setting. This ensures that your hair will be kept soft and silky for many years.
Secret #2 – Moisturize your skin before putting on makeup. This can help your makeup go on well so that your appearance looks flawless. If you do not use a moisturizer, your makeup may look cakey and uneven. When you want to look good all day long, this is the best step to start with.
Secret #3 – Use a ‘hot spray’ on damp hair, prior to blow drying. You can find this type of product in the beauty section of Target or Walmart or even at Sally Beauty Supply. This spray is great at helping hair dry faster while preventing split ends. Heat protective sprays can help prevent over-drying, and provide hair with a pleasant smell after treatment.
Secret #4 – Make sure your foundation matches. Before buying a new foundation, you should test it on the inside of your wrist. This skin is comparable to the skin on your face and will give you a good example of what this makeup will look like on your face and how it feels.
Secret #5 – Darkening very light eyelashes can really open up the eyes and make a noticeable impact on the eye color. Avoid using black mascara, which may appear way too harsh on light lashes and against lighter hair colors. Instead, you can have them tinted professionally or you can use brown pencil to line your eyes.
Secret #6 – A little bit of pink lipstick can go a long way towards hiding your trouble spots. Not that you should apply the lipstick to the actual problem, but because the pink lipstick usually draws attention to the lips and minimizes focus on other areas. A pair of distracting lips and some well-placed concealer will prevent that blemish from ever being noticed. If lipstick isn’t your thing, try lip balm. Put on lip balm every day. Lip balm is an essential ingredient in keeping your lips beautiful. You should apply it to your lips at night when you go to bed, and in the morning before you put any lipstick or gloss on your lips. Your lips will stay looking younger and fuller.
Secret #7 – Filing your nails is a wonderful way of making them look healthy. When filing, it is important to only go in one direction. Doing this will make sure that you don’t get any breakage from causing stress to your nails. You also won’t have to deal with any hang nails that can snag.
Secret #8 – To keep your hair from tangling while you sleep, use a silk pillowcase! A silk pillowcase is gentle on your hair and will allow it to lay smoothly on the pillow as you rest. You’ll wake up with your hair looking great! If you don’t have a silk pillowcase, you can lay a silk scarf across the pillow.
Secret #9 – Slice a potato into thin strips. By putting this on your eyes, you can reduce puffiness. Leave the application in place for around ten minutes. Cucumbers, teabags and chilled teaspoons also work well. These applications will show instant results, reducing puffiness and reducing the look of sleepyness.
Secret #10 – To get rid of white patches on your nails, consume more calcium. The patches are a sign of vitamin deficiency. Clearing up those white spots will allow you to get a smoother and more consistent look with your nail polish. If you can’t add more calcium to your diet, start taking a supplement.
Some people’s beauty regimens tend to solidify at a certain age as they become habituated to doing things in a way that’s familiar and comfortable to them. As long as you are happy, that is alright. If you are not satisfied, there is nothing wrong with getting assistance. While it is important to love yourself for who you are, it can still be possible for you to look better and feel better about yourself without major changes. By applying the tips from this article, you will be able to transform yourself to better reflect on the outside the person you are on the inside.
