STRAWBERRY BANANA SMOOTHIE RECIPE
2 cups strawberries, trimmed and cut in half
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt (organic, if possible)
1 cup unsweetened almond milk

Add all ingredients into your blender and blend until rich and creamy. Serve and enjoy!

NOTES
You can use frozen strawberries instead of fresh ones – just be sure your banana is not frozen or the smoothie will be thick and hard to blend.

Try adding a scoop of protein powder to give this smoothie more sticking power.

Swap in some plant-based yogurt to make this recipe 100% vegan.

Add a drizzle of peanut butter to the finished product (it tastes like peanut butter and jelly!).

Beauty Basics Of The Stars You Can Use



Beauty can be a lot of fun and there are so many ways one can either improve upon their appearance or change their look entirely. So whether you need more techniques to make yourself appear more like what you want to look like or if you’re looking for something new, take a look at the tips below.

Unless you are suffering from severe acne, you should be sure to use a moisturizer that includes emollients, which help your skin to soak up moisture from the environment. Other ingredients, such as humectants, can actually attract moisture to the skin. Dry skin would benefit from a moisturizer with a heavy, creamy consistency.

Look for a concealer palette that comes with two different shades of concealer. This allows you to blend a perfectly customized shade that will melt flawlessly into your skin. Use small dabbing and patting motions to apply the concealer over red areas, broken capillaries, and any other marks or discolored areas.

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.

Pale or sparse eyebrows can be quickly and easily filled in to make them appear thicker and fuller. Use a disposable mascara wand to brush on dark brown eye shadow or mascara onto the brows, then comb it through with another disposable brush to smooth out the color and remove clumps.

Use eye drops to liven up your face. Tired eyes can bring down your whole look. Keep a small bottle of eye drops in your bag and use them periodically, especially when sitting in front of your computer. They will not only freshen up your eyes, but make them sparkle too.

Do not pick or squeeze at your face. A simple beauty rule is to keep your hands off of your face, except to clean or moisturize. You run the risk of causing scars when you pick at your face. You can also transfer oil and dirt onto your face when you are touching it.

Add a little shimmer to your eyes with a shimmery eye shadow! Shimmer eye shadow will give your eyes a glittery appearance and also help them look brighter! Select shades that have a shine that is about the tone of your skin. Do not be afraid to experiment with different colors and application techniques.

Rosewater and cucumbers can be used to treat dark circles under the eyes. They have properties that will make your eyes feel fresh and rejuvenated while also ridding them of dark circles. You can use this treatment by taking a cotton pad and dipping it in the liquid from either rosewater or cucumbers. Put this over your eyes for at least 15 minutes.

If you ever find yourself relly under time pressure, here’s a great tip on how to do a quick makeup job. Put some waxy lip balm on your fingertip. Then put a dark eyeliner on top of that. Smear it onto your eyes. Then finish with mascara. Apply lipstick. You’re ready to go!

Petroleum jelly is one of the most effective and inexpensive skin softeners on the market. Among the million skin softeners you can spend a small fortune on, the one that is most trusted to soften feet is good old petroleum jelly. Several times a week apply it to all the rough areas on your feet. It will prevent peeling and chafing, and before you know it, your feet will be smooth and healthy.

A little beauty advice from leading makeup artists to look rested even when you aren’t is to avoid piling on the foundation. Try using a tinted moisturizer instead and then apply a beige eye pencil, this will counteract the redness around the eyes and leave you looking refreshed and ready for the day.

As your skin gets older, be sure to wear the moisturizer that meets your skin’s needs for this age. Skin tends to start out oily and becomes drier over time, so it’s important to make sure that your skin’s need for moisture is being met appropriately. If your moisturizer feels heavy or is giving you skin trouble, it’s time to reevaluate.

Is your face tired looking? Does it need some radiance? With just the swirl of a brush you can instantly brighten up your skin. Illuminating powder is an amazing product that will wake up your skin. Apply it to your face, on the cheekbones, temples, on the chin and under your eye brows. You can wear this alone or over foundation.

To help you pluck your eyebrows, you want to hold the tweezers in a vertical position against the side of your nose. You then move the tweezers along your eyebrows, and you will see very easily where your arch should start and stop. This will ensure that you stay with the natural shape of your eyebrows.

Sipping soda with a straw that is positioned away from your teeth and towards the back of your mouth greatly reduces the amount of contact your teeth have with enamel eroding substances like soda. Always use a straw to drink sodas and other beverages similar to it. This helps prevent enamel erosion and keeps your teeth looking amazing.

It is important to remember the beauty starts from within. Take care of yourself by eating a healthy diet. Get lots of fruits, vegetables, and whole grains in daily. Consider taking a high quality multivitamin as well. You will look younger, more vibrant, and feel increasingly beautiful too.

Beauty can be a very effective tool to have in your arsenal for whatever needs you may have. You may already have a defined look and want to know how to save time or you may want to learn something new for a fresh look. No matter your reasons, hopefully the tips above gave you some ideas.
