Holiday Make Up Beauty Tricks

CLEANSING the skin properly, especially the face, is fundamental to good skin care. Oil-based makeup, which is preferred by those with drier complexions, should be removed with oil-based cleansing creams. Never go to bed without removing your makeup and thoroughly cleansing your face.

BEFORE makeup is applied, moisturizer should be applied to the face and neck after thorough cleansing. Moisturizers will keep you looking younger with smoother skin. The best time to apply moisturizer is right after you wash or shower, when the skin is damp and the moisturizer can seal in the moisture.

FOUNDATION is very important to one’s overall beauty. Foundation is used to enhance the color of the complexion. Choose a foundation to match your skin tone. Using the right foundation makes your skin look flawless and smooth. Choose the shade closest to your skin tone by testing it on your jaw line. When applying the foundation, be sure to blend it into the hairline and neckline to achieve a consistent tone. Set the foundation by brushing it with loose powder that matches the

Make Up in 15 Minutes

Cleanse your face.

Is it necessary to wash your face in the morning? This will depend on your skin type. For dry skin. if you washed the night before, it is not necessary to wash your face in the morning again as it may be too dry for the skin.

Moisturize your face before make up.

Apply light texture moisturizer and after which, apply either foundation, powder or BB cream on your face and neck. Avoid the eyes area. For BB cream, you can do it without the moisturizer since it is a 2 in 1 combination. A good BB cream will last the whole day which is natural and smooth. Loose powder is good for people who prefer light natural make up.

Apply concealer to cover up any dark circles or eye puffiness

Before applying your eye make up, apply a few drop of eye cream or eye gel (suitable for dry skin) on your eyes areas. Do not use those overnight eye cream as it is too thick

Foundation Right Product

Foundations are usually manufactured to match skin types. For example, those who suffer from oily complexions need not go for oily foundations as this is not the best foundation for them considering their skin does not require more oil than it already has. Instead, oil free foundation is what they need to go with. Whether your face is milky white or chocolate in color, a foundation that matches your skin tone should be in order.

Remember to buy foundation from a reputed brand only if you wish to get value for your money. Ariane Poole cosmetics come highly recommended and are suitable in meeting your entire make up needs.

Consider the weather. Those residing in tropical regions with high temperatures should go for water proof foundation that has a high sun protection factor. In addition to providing the illusion of flawless skin, the high SPF ensures that your skin is protected against harmful ultraviolet rays. Waterproof foundation comes in different shades to suit a variety of skin types. This is to say that, in spite of the

Natural Beauty Solutions With Sensitive Skin

Natural beauty products have come a long way in the last five years, and this is great news for anyone with sensitive skin problems. This is because these new natural beauty products are containing less and less harmful or irritating substances, like parabens, SLS, or other potentially problematic ingredients. And with these less stripping products, our skin really can see wonderful benefits.

So what are these natural products, and what should you be looking for when picking out natural beauty products? Well for starters, we need to understand what the word natural means. Natural does not mean that these products are plucked from herbs and plants and placed in a container straight out. Natural does mean that each ingredient used has come from a natural source. This can be deceiving though because a lot of natural sources and components can be recreated. So your best bet is to start looking for products that show mostly botanical names in their ingredient list. You probably won’t find many products that are completely “natural”, and this is due to the preservation techniques that need to be used when creating even the most natural beauty products. Bacteria and other harmful, damaging

Summer Make Up on Shoestring

Waterproof mascara is a no brainer for summer, especially when on holiday. Alternatively, before you go away, get your eyelashes tinted instead. This is not expensive, looks amazing, and totally eliminates the need for mascara. The effects generally last for up to eight weeks.

Lips should be subtle in both color and texture – the aim is for a slightly tinted sheen. If you usually wear lip gloss in summer, go for a more natural looking stain that is not too gloopy or sticky. Treat yourself to a new lipstick – even the most expensive lipsticks are still quite affordable.

Keep skin natural looking with a hint of color and just a little bit of shimmer. Save on fake tan costs by going au natural, or if you simply must use a tanner then save money by doing your own instead of going to a salon. A tip for self tanning is to have someone on standby to do your back!

Nails should also be kept low key. Over the top nails are so over in the current economy. So either go without, or otherwise a pinky beige tone suits most hands and looks great

Make Up Techniques Natural Beauty

Focus on good looking Part: This may seem like common sense but it is a must and to focus on your sexiest feature. For example if you have broad eyes with long thin lashes, then try to add more flavor to your smoky eyes to get sexy look. And another example is your lips. Almost they make temptation, if you keep your lips toned down. In other words you have to highlight the main focal point with other supporting features. Make sense? But finally, what you end up is to make yourself looking catchy, noticeable and of course sexy.

Less is best! Yes, this is right. You have to keep yourself fairly natural. Your particular make up style makes you to feel comfortable in any occasion. Don’t do any mistake like irregular over make up that 90% women are doing in this world. Watch the current trending cosmetics and choose the best color match that fits you. In other hand you can also get fair in natural methods by using mild soaps and minerals.

Try Mineral Make up Naturally:

Of course, some people have sensitive skin and have to be careful about using make up.

Make Nude Beautifully For Skin Tone

The neutral or nude shades have been improved upon over the time and they now have some excitement to them. The shades are now vast and more interesting for all to try out no matter the skin tone they have. The texture of these nude shades are now diverse that we all find one that can work well for us and makes that natural beauty a lot enhanced and more fun to carry. The glow can now be brighter with shimmers.

To choose your nudes, make sure the colors are clear so that it will not drag down your skin tone. You need to add a level of warmth by the application of fresh blush and you can then finish it off with a soft color to your lips.

A dark skinned lady can go with pale banana shade on the entire eye area. This is the base for the whole application. Then she can define her eyes by using a light shading of deep copper to sculpt that crease of the eyes. You can now blend the shadow up from the crease straight to the brow bone area and do not fore tuner the eyes.

Hot Weather Make Up Ways


Cleanse: Wash your face using a gentle, oil-free cleanser such as Cetaphil, ($6.99; in drugstores ). If you’re experiencing breakouts, follow with an astringent that has salicylic acid. If you have extra oily skin, try an oil zapping toner-Dermalogica makes an astringent called Oil Control Lotion, ($44.00). Oil Control Lotion contains lemon and burdock root, which, when applied topically, helps skin heal after trauma.

Moisturize: If your complexion is oily, only moisturize under the eyes and skip the rest of the face. If you have dry skin, use a light, non-oily lotion.


Tinted Moisturizer: In lieu of foundation, blend a small amount of long-wearing, flesh-tinted gel or moisturizer evenly over your entire face. Unlike traditional foundation which has a heavier texture, tints and gels have no texture at all, yet give a lovely translucent glow to the skin. For dry and normal skin, NV Perricone makes a terrific tinted moisturizer. ($55). If your skin is oily, Laura Mercier Oil Free Tinted Moisturizer ($40; Laura Mercier) is an excellent choice.

For Extra Coverage: If areas of your face need more intense attention, such as broken capillaries, under-eye darkness, or rosacea, use

Beauty Nail Salon

Now I said starting point because location is only one small consideration and depending on you, possibly an insignificant consideration altogether. You see, just because a beauty salon is convenient for you it doesn’t mean that it will be the right fit for you. There are a number of other items to consider when selecting a beauty nail salon. Price might be the most important thing for you; however, I doubt that it is. Price is rarely the overwhelming factor for most women and I dare say it might be overlooked completely by a lot of you. Saving a few bucks is not as important as having a good experience and feeling like you’ve gotten your money’s worth.

A very important factor in choosing the salon that’s right for you is cleanliness. The reason I bring up cleanliness is that is possible to get an infection from a nail salon. You see salons use cutting tools that can pierce your skin and, if they haven’t been properly sterilized, can cause an infection. In fact, many local governments now legislate the cleanliness of day spas, beauty nail salons, hair salons etc. requiring them to be licensed and inspected.

Olive Oil Secrets

Olive oil can enhance one’s beauty when applied topically as well as when it is ingested. In fact, many women around the world are religious about ingesting one or two tablespoons daily. These women credit this daily dose of liquid gold for giving them youthful, soft, supple skin that so many of us desire. It will do wonders for your overall health too. If you don’t want to take it straight, consider drizzling some over your salad, dipping fresh bread into olive oil mixed with dried herbs, or adding a tablespoon to your smoothies (you won’t even taste it). If you enjoy sweet and salty flavor combinations, a delicious way to enjoy olive oil is to drizzle some over chocolate ice cream and sprinkle a small amount of sea salt on top.

Applying olive oil to your skin and hair will leave it feeling velvety smooth since it works as a moisturizing agent. That’s why it is often found in many popular beauty products available on the market. Look for products that contain this precious oil to add to your beauty line-up. Or, skip the overpriced store bought products altogether and start using olive oil instead. Pour

Young Clear Skin

Young clear skin comes down to supporting and maintaining the underlying health of the skin. You see, all the methods I mentioned above are surface treatments. They are intended to provide a temporary, cosmetic effect that gives the appearance of revitalized skin.

In order to get true, healthy, long-lasting results, the skin cells that reside deep within the dermis must be given specific protection and support.

Skin care scientists, who have known this for years, have struggled to find substances that can penetrate deeply enough to interact with the cells. Interaction means delivering supportive nutrients to the cell.

Fortunately, their “aha” moment came when they realized that “natural” skin needs “natural” substances to nourish and support healthy cell function.

Why is cell function so important? Because when cells are functioning properly they produce robust levels of collagen and elastin. These two structural proteins play a critical role in maintaining young, clear, firm, smooth, moist, even toned skin.

Aging, dull, spotty skin is the direct result of damaged, sickly skin cells that can no longer produce collagen and elastin.

So many of these “new-thinking” scientists have used this knowledge to look for the

1. Blurred Category Lines

The driving forces at work have changed here. Healthcare and well-being is a consumer movement which has blurred category lines. It has impacted each and every faucet of this industry, from sourcing of ingredients, supply chain practices, packaging, to even product use.

Still beyond, it has impacted how beauty companies treat partners and employees. Consumers aspire to having a full well-being, and the majority are now admiring re-using some things.

2. A New Trend Matrix Noticed

Still yet, there’s no single, industry-wide explanation of the term ‘natural’. Consumers will interpret this term and incorporate ‘naturalism’ into their lives, and in infinite ways. Numerous trends are changing the personal care and beauty space, including super-food beauty, fermented beauty, bio-cleanse and small-batch beauty.

3. Revolution in Making and Marketing of Skin Care Products

It’s quite reasonable that people are now doubting brand claims on their items being natural. Most consumers in fact, are those who barely believe products labeled ‘natural’ are really natural. This is a sentiment that has been shared across generations.

Meanwhile, some niche brands such as Mother Dirt, having products specially designed to preserve ammonia-oxidizing bacteria

Celebrity Beauty Secrets

One of the best beauty tips you could follow is to sleep properly every day. Celebrities might party a lot but they ensure that they do not miss out on their daily eight hours of beauty sleep. Your skin cells are hard at work all night repairing the damage that has been caused during the day. Therefore, you should make sure that you get eight hours of sleep at a stretch every night.

Hair is truly a person’s crowning glory, and you’ve never really caught a celebrity having a bad hair day, have you? This is because most of them follow simple beauty tips to keep their hair healthy. If you were to massage your hair with a mixture of honey with beer you will be able to give it a beautiful sheen. In addition, you will not have any problems with hair fall.

Your face is not the only part of your body that needs attention. Your hands and feet should also be looked after well because the skin here gets damaged very fast. These areas also age very fast and give away your true age if they are not looked after well. You can

Beautiful College Campuses

Based on these characteristics, Scripps College in Claremont, California is definitely one which comes close to being a perfect university. Scripps College has been repeatedly recognized as one of the most beautiful campuses in the country. One of its most stunning spots would have to be the Margaret Fowler Memorial Garden. A small serene fountain is surrounded by four olive trees from the home of the lady whom the garden was named after. This area is so enchanting and beautiful that, according to the website of the university, weddings have been held in this area. But don’t be fooled into thinking that all the sights and sounds in Scripps College are proper and without a hint of modernity, this school actually has a graffiti wall! The fact that this graffiti wall is nestled beside a rose garden makes the contrast greater and unique. I love how universities have embraced modern forms of art like graffiti in their own ways.

Another picturesque university which offers the same greenery and impressive architecture would have to be Sweet Briar College. Unfortunately for men, women are the only ones allowed to enjoy this quaint college in Sweet Briar, Virginia. With its

Organic Beauty Products

1. What most people find fascinating about these organic beauty products is that most of them smell wonderful! This is because most of these products are made from essential oils that are derived from flowers, fruits, herbs and other plants that naturally emit a pleasant smell. The fragrance is more natural than what other commercial skin products have, because some of these synthetic cosmetic and beauty items smell like the chemicals they are made of or if they do smell good, it’s only because the manufacturers use other fragrances to hide the otherwise harsh smell.

Some of the more common fragrances that you can get out of organic beauty products are that of lavender, rose, papaya, coconut milk, vanilla and other natural ingredients that are harvested straight from a farm, with no other harsh chemicals added.

2. You can easily trace the ingredients organic beauty products are made of. If it says on the packaging that the organic beauty product is made from papaya, then that’s the scent that you will get. This is why these products are quite popular, because there are no hidden ingredients used, unlike the synthetic beauty items where the list of

All about Black Beauty Standards

I grew up, a White small country girl, in apartheid South Africa – a place where by far the majority of the population is Black. One vacation I came home from boarding school to be greated by Violet who wrapped me in her big black arms, and chortled with delight, “Utyebile kakulu ngoku!” In English she was telling me that I was very fat now. I was devastated – after all, I had gained weight but I desperately wanted to be thin. It would take me years to realize that Violet was complimenting me – her black beauty standards were very different to mine.

Part of the beauty standards in Violet’s rural Xhosa culture of the 1970’s when she passed this comment, is that ‘fat is beautiful.’ To be large in her culture was considered desirable and beautiful. It meant: you were healthy, you didn’t have AIDS. It meant you were fertile, sexy and womanly enough to attract a good husband – one who is wealthy enough to provide well. It meant you were wealthy enough to eat well.

What I remember most about Violet (and the other Black women who I came into daily contact

Beauty Care Routine

Early signs of aging can be caused by a stressful lifestyle. In order to avert signs such as wrinkles, early hair loss or even dry skin, you should be consistent with your beauty care routine and devote a specific time of the day for it. Others may not agree, but your morning can be a perfect beauty care time.

In the shower, you can actually use a loofah that can help you exfoliate dead skin in order to give way to fresh, new skin cells. You should also be choosy with your shampoo, and choose the one that fits your type of hair. There are shampoos that are specially formulated for dry hair, for oily hair and even for long hair. Get into the habit of using a conditioner regularly in order to keep your hair moisturized the whole day. After a good refreshing shower, you should always remember to put on a body moisturizing lotion that can stop skin dryness and can help your skin moisturized during the day.

You should also make it a regular part of your beauty care routine to use a facial moisturizer with sunblock that can protect your skin from
