Looking your best doesn’t have to be hard work. There are many ways you can boost your appearance without spending tons of money. This article will help you take advantage of what beauty professionals already know.
If you intend to make use of fake eyelashes, your nightmare would be discovering an allergy to the glue. To prevent this in advance, test the eyelash glue with a small application on your arm. Place plaster over that and leave it for 24 hours. If there’s no rash, you are good to go.
During the day, use eye drops to make your eyes sparkle. Your eyes won’t feel as tired, the redness will disappear and you will look refreshed and prepared for anything. Keep a bottle handy inside your purse or inside a desk drawer. Use as directed by the bottle.
Try buying some quality brushes for make up application. An expensive makeup brush that does the job will be beneficial in the long run. When you can’t afford a lot, check online to find sales and add the brushes to your collection as you can afford them.
Your nails may yellow if you use nail polish regularly. To get rid of those stains, soak nails in a small bowl of lemon juice mixed with water. Soak for about five minutes, then repeat the process once per week.
To find your perfect foundation color, apply three different but similar shades to your jawbone, then let dry. Choose the one that is closest to your skin tone, but if they aren’t perfect, pick one that is slightly lighter than your skin.
If you enjoy the effects of facial masks but don’t have the money or time for a spa day, then try making one at home. All you need is an egg. Separate the whites, and apply to your face. Apply the mask to your face, leave it in place for a period of five minutes, then wash it off completely. The egg white proteins will help to replenish the moisture in the skin.
You can adjust the style and color of your hair to flatter and slim your face. A cut with sleek long lines that lands below your jaw but above your shoulders works best. You can also do highlights that frame your face, or lowlights. They are really flattering and pull attention to the features on your face.
Coconut oil can really work wonders when it comes to your beauty. This natural oil will fight aging through antioxidants and will not leave behind any residue. Try combining it with sugar to create a relaxing exfoliant.
Even those with straight hair can suffer frizzing caused by humidity. When you finish moisturizing your skin, rub your hands over your hair. The remaining moisturizer that is left on your palms will smooth out your hair. This technique works for any hair type. Even better, leave a product intended for hair, like a smoothing balm or leave-in conditioner, near your moisturizer, and you will be more apt to pick it up.
Every few weeks, organize your makeup bag. Many people use old, expired beauty products. These items eventually get used and that may lead to infection and even damage to eyes or skin. Check your makeup stash regularly to make sure there are no expired products.
Vaseline (or a non-petroleum based oil such as peanut oil) can be massaged into the cuticles at least once a week for an intensive beauty treatment. Doing so will improve the overall health of your nail. Use a quality top coat when polishing nails, too.
To plump your lips, use white eyeshadow just on top of the cupid’s bow on your top lip, in the center. When you highlight this part of your lip, you let it catch and reflect light in a way that leaves others with the impression that the upper lip is larger and more full than it may be.

The advice you’ve just read can help you understand the science, as well as the art by helping you come up with your personal touch, allowing your uniqueness to shine through.
