To plump your lips, use white eyeshadow just on top of the cupid’s bow on your top lip, in the center. Highlighting this area of your lip so that it catches and reflects the light helps to create the illusion that your upper lip is fuller than it really is.
Use a product called “hot spray” on your wet hair before blow drying it. This is sold in the beauty section of any big box store and many drug stores, and helps to prevent split ends. It also helps your hair dry more quickly. It also usually smells awesome and helps your hair stay moisturized.
Always wash off all of your makeup before going to bed. Use a solution that is geared to expel all of the makeup from your face. Then, you can begin your cleansing routine. Make-up left on your face can result in blemishes that are very unattractive.
Curl your eyelashes before you put on mascara. Curling up your eyelashes will help them appear longer and will make your eyes appear brighter and more vibrant. Carefully squeeze and hold the device at the base of your lashes. Then, you want to move the curler gently in the direction of the ends of your lashes, where you will squeeze it again. This provides a natural look.
Unless you have the skin of a geisha, use matte blush instead of one that shimmers. Shimmer blushes can highlight any imperfection. However, a matte blush can camoflauge a blemish and helps you to look flawless and radiant.
If your eyes aren’t looking the way you wish, you should experiment with makeup techniques! If you want to make your eyelashes fuller, try using a lengthening mascara that is also waterproof. So many brands of mascaras promise to have your lashes looking fuller, as well as curled. The result of this technology is often that the mascara is unusually heavy. The mascara weighs down your lashes instead of lifting them up. Some lengthening formulas make your lashes look longer and enhance their natural curl. Your lashes will look thicker and have an upward curl to them.
It should now be obvious to you that it takes more to stay beautiful than most people think. The amount of time you invest, however, will benefit you. By choosing to implement the tips above, you will feel more confident and get many second looks.
