The holidays can be a very hectic time of the year which can lead to feeling scattered and ungrounded (and I don’t know about you – but I tend to snack more when feeling ungrounded!).
So here are some of my favorite morning practices to start the day feeling clear and grounded!
1. Write down ONE thing I am grateful for and 5 reasons why. This helps me really drop into the emotion of gratitude.
2. Empty my brain by writing out every single thing I believe needs to get done. Get it out if your brain and onto paper – simple but so helpful!
3. Ask yourself, what’s now and what’s next?! Its an easy way to get clear on your priorities so you know what truly needs your attention for the day.
What are some of your favorite tips for feeling clear and grounded? I would love to hear them in the comment section below!
Creating Lips That Pop Using Lip Liner, Lipstick An Lip Gloss
You can never get enough beauty tips due to all the different techniques created as the seasons change. Women are always finding new methods of enhancing their beauty and you want to take part in this. This article provides a great list of tips that will help you enhance your own beauty and be the shining star you desire to be.
If you want to add a pinch of color to your face midday, consider stocking up on a stick of cream blush or a gel-based cheek blusher. Apply a small amount to the apples of your cheek, then blending in circular motions. This keeps your face looking fresh in a natural and easily applied in a manner that is especially flattering.
Steam your face. You can do this by placing your face over a hot bowl of water with a towel over your head. This will open up your pores and draw out impurities and bacteria. You should clean your face, then rinse it with cold water so you close your pores back up.
Use a gel or creme blush instead of powder. This type of blush gives your skin a glowing and healthy look. Gel and creme blushes are more transparent and blend more evenly than regular powder blush. You should rub this blush on your cheeks and blend upwards for a flawless finish.
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.
You do not need to spend a lot of money on a fancy deep conditioning mask. There are many recipes you can make at home that include foods filled with nutrients that are great for your hair. A great one includes mashed strawberries and enough mayonnaise to make a spreadable paste. Leave it in your wet hair for 10 minutes and rinse.
Remember that fragrance rises. Scents rise. When applying perfume or scented body mist, put it lower on your body. Do not apply too much by putting a little everywhere. Just apply a little around your ankles. The scent will rise without being as overpowering as some perfumes tend to be.
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.
If you have dry skin, or older looking skin, you need to be exfoliating on a weekly basis. You should also do this if you are applying any kind of tanning lotion. You want to exfoliate first to get the most out of the tanning lotion you are using.
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!
Try a basic loofah on areas of your skin that are problematic or blemished. This will buff your problem areas and make them smoother. If you use this with exfoliating body wash, you will have even better results. To get the most from it, use the loofah twice every week.
You should skip a day each week when it comes to using hot tools on your hair. These devices can damage your hair, and if you use them too often, it’ll make your hair look brittle and weak and it won’t be able to recover.
One really important aspect to beauty is learning how to work with what you have. You may be trying to improve some things in your life but there are other traits that you will have to live with. For the unchangeable things you should learn how to wear them with pride.
Massaging Vaseline into your cuticles will help your hands in many ways. It will make the skin much more hydrated and it will also encourage your nails to grow a bit quicker. Do this once a week every week and you are sure to see a big difference in the appearance of your hands and nails.
If you are over a certain age and uncertain as to how to wear makeup in a flattering way, please take advantage of the makeup professionals at your local department store. Pick a brand that appeals to you and plunk yourself down in the chair of the most skilled-looking makeup artist. They will be happy to give you tons of free helpful advice on the best way to bring your “now” beauty out. Whether you buy their products or not is entirely up to you, but the makeover and the advice are free and yours to keep.
If you are diligent in your daily hygiene routine by brushing your teeth and using mouthwash, yet you still have a problem with bad breath, you must remember to floss, as well. Flossing dislodges bacteria that are between your teeth, which could be causing the odor problem. It is recommended you floss daily.
With beauty tips ranging across several different techniques, methods, and even types of products to use, there are definitely new things to be learned. You can find a greater sense of beauty in utilizing the latest techniques and finding out more about your own beauty and enhancing your natural beauty even more.
