Beauty Does Not Get Any Easier Than This

Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder, as well as everyone who looks at her! You want to look your best, enhance your finest features and put your best face forward so read on for some fantastic advice and ideas on you to improve upon your looks in ways you’ve probably never thought of!

Apply a moisturizer that is light before putting a fake tan on your skin. A fake tan will collect on spots of your skin that are dry. You should make sure you pay attention to your feet, elbows, knees and around your wrists. Apply lotion to these areas before applying a fake tanner.

Cracked heels and dry, flaking feet are very unattractive, especially in sandals. To combat this problem, right before you go to bed, soak your feet in a warm water bath for ten minutes, coat them with petroleum jelly and then cover them with a thick pair of socks to lock in the moisture. In no time, you’ll have soft feet.



If you have a square face you can use a rose or coral brush to make it more soft looking. With your fingers, gently smooth the cream blush over the apples of your cheeks and outward toward the temples.

Take care not to over tweeze your eyebrows. Repeated over-plucking can result in areas where hair refuses to grow back, resulting in bald spots. If you have already developed bare spots in your brows, fill in the areas with a brow pencil temporarily while applying a product to regrow the hair.

To determine whether you have cool or warm skin tones, check out the veins on the inside of your wrist. If you have cool skin, the veins will appear bluish in color. If you have warm skin, they will have a greenish tint instead. Cool skin tones look best in cool colors, such as blue and purple, whereas warm skin tones, look best in warm colors like red, yellow and orange.

Add plenty of fruits and vegetables to your diet to make your skin more beautiful. Eating more fruits and vegetables have benefits to every aspect of your health, not just to your skin. Raw food can not just make your skin beautiful and youthful, it can extend your life by years.

Here is a beauty tip! Warm your concealer before using it! Often when you put concealer on it can come off looking thick and caked. You have to know how to conceal your concealer. First warm it by rubbing it in circular motion on the back of your hand! Then use your finger to apply.

Separate products for softening, protecting, and coloring are no longer necessary! Try using a tinted moisturizer instead of a typical foundation. You can save yourself a lot of time and money buying a lightly tinted moisturizer with a sunscreen to replace the heavier old-fashioned foundations and creams.

For an inexpensive, spa-like facial just lean yourself over a bowl of steaming hot water! Cover or wrap up your hair, fill any container with really hot water and allow the steam to open and clear your pores! It is soothing and stimulating and very cost effective. Follow up with cold water to close and refresh pores, then add moisturizer!

Use Epsom salts within your beauty regime. Epsom salts are good for sore muscles and a number of other health issues. Try dissolving Epsom salts with lavender to make paste. Apply it to troubled skin. Leave for several hours or even overnight. When morning arrives, your skin will be greatly improved.

To hide purplish under-eye circles, try a yellow concealer. The yellow helps to cancel out the purple, leaving a smooth palette for applying your foundation. A thin layer of creamy yellow concealer also makes a great primer layer for your eyeshadow, because it minimizes the appearance of capillaries and helps the shadow stick.

It’s important to remember that beauty is not only skin deep. If you are sure of yourself and you take good care of your body, you are already a beauty. Always be more concerned with your own sense of self than the opinion of others and you will find the path to true beauty is simply self esteem.

If you hate the problems of clumpy and matted eyelashes, try using an eyelash curler. This will make the eyelashes thick and full without using any products. When using the curler, start at the roots and only use on lashes that are clean. Over time your lashes will become fuller, thicker, and beautiful.

It is advised to get massages on a regular basis; it can be both a treat for yourself and an improvement for your health. Massage will allow the body to have better circulation, remove toxins and improve lymph drainage. Take advantage of the health benefits and get a massage on a regular basis.

If you have sensitive skin there are certain things you should avoid doing in order to keep your skin healthy and looking its best. Do not wash your face with regular soap, do not use harsh, overly strong cosmetics, do not use facial masks that dry out the skin, avoid the use of foaming cosmetics and do not use cosmetics that contain fruit acids or alcohol.

Are you looking for a simple soft look? First apply a light liquid foundation. This will give you a natural feel. If you need to even out your skin you can also apply concealer. Next, apply a soft creamy brown eyeshadow and a coat of light mascara. Last, add peach tinted lip gloss. This will give you the simple fresh look you are looking for.

Looking beautiful can be expensive and time consuming; hopefully this article has given you some new tips and tricks to try that will save your valuable time and money! Little things can add up to make big and positive changes in the way you look and feel about yourself so incorporate this advice into your routine of being more beautiful and having greater confidence!
