So, you think that you are an expert when it comes to beauty? You know how to properly apply products and use the tools? That’s great, but you are far from done learning things that can improve. Try looking at the tips below to find more to work along with your skill set.
Apply a moisturizer that is light before putting a fake tan on your skin. A fake tan will collect on spots of your skin that are dry. You should make sure you pay attention to your feet, elbows, knees and around your wrists. Apply lotion to these areas before applying a fake tanner.
If you are using shimmer, highlight the places light will hit. This will give you a subtle glow. Highlight your cheekbones and the bridge of your nose and use loose powder to set it in place.
To prevent buildup on your hair, use a clarifying shampoo once a week. Over time, residue from styling products and conditioner can build up on your hair, leaving it dull and lifeless. Using a clarifying shampoo at least once a week can remove this buildup, leaving your hair shiny, bouncy and full of life.
Always apply a heat protectant spray to your hair before using a curling iron, flat iron or hair dryer. Heat can damage your hair, leaving it brittle, dry and full of split ends. Just like their name implies, heat protectant sprays coat your hair to protect it from the heat. This allows it to stay smooth, sleek and shiny no matter how you choose to style your hair.
If you have dry skin, or older looking skin, you need to be exfoliating on a weekly basis. You should also do this if you are applying any kind of tanning lotion. You want to exfoliate first to get the most out of the tanning lotion you are using.
Foundation can be used as a concealer if you run out. You can use any extra foundation that you have as a short fix to this issue. This is a great concealer because it covers up imperfections due to the thickness of the makeup.
To highlight your eyes and make them look larger and more awake, use a shimmery, pale shade of vanilla or light gold just under your brow bone. You can sweep it down to cover your entire lid for a natural look, or sweep it on after applying your other eye colors to frame your eyes.
If you’re in between hair dresser appointments, and need to hide some roots, use dark mascara on black or brunette hair and gold eye shadow on blond hair! Nobody is perfect and if you’ve scheduled your hair salon appointment too far in advance to save your roots from showing, brush them lightly with appropriately colored mascara or combine hair spray and blond shades of powder to conceal those roots until you can see your stylist!
