Apply a light-weight moisturizer before your makeup. Moisturizers condition your skin and help protect it, but they are also helpful in getting makeup to spread evenly. Using a moisturizer will avoid a blotchy or streaked look. That is a wonderful way to help makeup last and to also look fresh.
To plump your lips, use white eyeshadow just on top of the cupid’s bow on your top lip, in the center. The increase in fullness is an illusion that is created by the highlighted area of the lip reflecting light.
To play up the color of your beautiful hazel or gorgeous green eyes, choose darker neutrals that create contrast against lighter eyes, shades that have a red base to bring out the green, or other complementary shades. These enhancing colors include deep purples, silvery pewter, light brown, and pale, shimmery lavender.
If you plan to head out right after work, it is easy to get a fresh look by dusting some matte powder on oilier areas with a big brush. You can make your cheekbones have some emphasis with a gentle application of shimmery powder on your cheek temples.
Buy duplicates of your favorite beauty products if you can. Place them in frequented areas at your home and office. This way you will be prepared for absolutely anything, especially those days when you are running too late to apply makeup fully.
You can make a DIY mouthwash by mixing peppermint oil with purified water. Use a drop of oil per each ounce of water. First boil the water, and measure the drops of oil into a large Pyrex or ceramic container. It is important to add the boiling water next. Cover the container with a clean cloth (i.e. a handkerchief) and allow to cool. Pour this into a container, such as a bottle, with an air-tight lid. You now have your own custom mouthwash!
Fruits and vegetable juices contain antioxidants that can be nurturing to the skin. Eating fresh produce is essential to a healthy body and skin. Drinking vegetable or fruit juice is an easy way to add them into your regular eating schedule.
