If you’re unhappy with the way you look, your feelings can seep into many other aspects of your life. That’s why it’s important to take the time to cultivate an appearance you can be proud of. In this article, you’ll find a number of tips that will boost your confidence and leave you looking more beautiful.
One way to promote healthy, strong nails is to continue to have regular manicures and pedicures – but skip the nail polish. This will keep your fingernails and toenails looking smooth, shiny, and with healthy coloring while allowing them to become stronger and harder between polish applications. It also prevents unsightly yellowing from constant polishing.
A great tip to use when tweezing your eyebrows is to use restrain. Over plucking the brows can lead to bald patches and emaciated brows where hair only grows back irregularly. If this has happened, use a brow gel which is protein-spiked to encourage healthy regrowth and brow fillers that can shade in areas that are problems.
To reduce red tones in your skin, use a green based concealer. Because green and red are opposite from each other on the color wheel, the green tones in the concealer will cancel out any red tones in your skin. However, keep in mind that you only need to use a very small amount of concealer to counteract the red. If you use too much you can wind up looking green instead.
If you have ever woken up in the morning and discovered that areas of your face are puffy, look to your refrigerator and a cucumber. You can cut up a cucumber and massage it over your entire face using a circular upward and outward motion. The cucumber has a natural astringent to help reduce swelling.
If you are a lifelong fan of heavy, dangling earrings, you may notice that your earlobes appear somewhat stretched out. Instead of spending thousands on earlobe restoration surgery, try applying a small piece of skin-colored adhesive bandage to the back of the earlobe. It will make the size of your piercing appear less noticeable while keeping your lobes looking more firm.
When painting your nails, always use a good base coat. Not only does a base coat allow polish to better adhere to your nails, but it prevents your nails from becoming discolored, which is common when using darker colors. For maximum staying power, look for adhesive base coats, which dry to a somewhat tacky finish.
Use a high quality, waterproof mascara at the beach or swimming pool. Water can quickly wash away your beauty routine. Using waterproof products can keep this from happening. If all of your other products wash off but your mascara remains, you will still look “done up” and complete.
