This set of tips contains some of the best advice for helping a good beauty fanatic become a great beauty fanatic.
Try a night-time application of Vaseline for your feet. You can get the same smooth, soft results of a professional pedicure this way. Vaseline is common in most homes, and you can do this treatment with your daily beauty ritual. Make sure that after you put on the Vaseline, you put on some socks.
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.
Get an even, natural looking spray tan by investing some time preparing your skin before applying the product. For best results, don’t shave or use any other forms of hair removal the day you plan to tan. Exfoliating your skin for several days beforehand will also help you achieve streak free results.
Curl eyelashes before putting mascara on. This helps lift your eye area and gives your eyelashes a longer look. When using an eyelash curler, start at the bottom of the lashes and squeeze for a single second. Then, bring the curler closer towards the ends of your lashes and squeeze once again. This should result in a pleasing and natural looking curve.
For beautiful nails, put top coat on top of your nail polish every time. Topcoat will not only keep your nails looking shiny, it will extend the length of time between polishing. Avoid substituting clear nail polish for topcoat as it is not the same product, and will not provide the same benefit.
Don’t go overboard with shimmer; apply it sparingly and lightly. Putting it where the light will hit it creates a nice glow effect. When using highlighters, place them on the higher spots on the face, including cheekbones, brows and the nose, followed by a thin dusting of powder.
Do you find that your nails become chipped and scratched after each manicure? Apply a clear top coat. This will keep the paint from chipping and leave your nails looking glossy Understand that this is not the same thing as clear nail polish. Don’t purchase clear polish – remember to buy top coat.
Use a brow gel to stimulate growth in sparse eye brows. Whether you have naturally sparse brows or got a little overzealous with the tweezers, a brow gel can help grow hair back. Look for one that has added protein. In the meantime, use fillers to shade the thin areas.
Avoid commercial “body butters” that contain chemicals, dyes and additives. All natural walnut oil or peanut oil make wonderful all-over body moisturizers. They are very inexpensive and are scent free. If you want scent, you can add the essential oil of your choice. After your bath, slather walnut or peanut oil on lavishly. Wrap up in an old terry-cloth robe and curl up with a good book or a movie while your moisture treatment soaks in.
To get softer and sexier lips use a honey scrub! Take 3 drops of honey, and mix it with half a teaspoon of sugar. Apply the mixture liberally to your lips, and let it sit for about 10 minutes. When you wash it off, you’ll find your lips have gotten softer and may even look fuller.
To keep your feet and toes soft, use petroleum jelly. There are an endless number of products that claim to soften the skin on your feet, but the most trusted is old fashioned petroleum jelly. About three times each week apply it to your entire foot, it will keep your feet soft and smooth.
If you ever run out of concealer you can turn to your foundation! Simply turn the cap of the foundation over and you will find a thicker, more condensed collection of it which you can use in a pinch in place of your regular concealer. Simply dab your finger tip in the cap and pat the foundation under eyes or over any other blemish!
Whiten your teeth using strawberries. Before a big event or pictures and to instantly whiten your teeth, use the juicy side of a cut strawberry and rub over your teeth. This will help whiten them quickly and easily. This works great if you are unprepared or running low on time.
Try using a loofah to get rid of skin imperfections. They exfoliate the skin and make it smoother and much more attractive. Use a wash too to get the best results. To keep your skin smooth without causing irritation, try using a loofah two times per week.
There is a simple piece of advice which, if not followed, will adversely affect how people look. You must take care of your eyebrows and there should always be two of them. Thread, wax or pluck them to keep your eyebrows defined and under control.
If you want to fill in your brows but find pencils too harsh-looking, try a brow powder that’s a bit lighter than your hair color. Powder provides a softer look and is easier to blend than waxy pencils. You can set the powder using a brow gel or a dab of clear mascara.
