You want to look your best, but don’t want to waste your time and money on expensive or untrustworthy products. In fact, you don’t have to spend loads of money to up your beauty regime and make yourself shine. Of course, it is in the best interests of the beauty product manufacturers to make you part with your dollars so that they can stay in business but hit the flip for a few inexpensive tricks and tips that the beauty industry would rather you didn’t know.
Why waste loads of money on expensive cleansers when you can simply steam your face clean instead? You can do this by placing your face over a hot bowl of water with a towel over your head. This will open up your pores and draw out impurities and bacteria. You should then clean your face with a gentle cleanser, then rinse it with cold water so you close your pores back up. Steaming your face will mean that your cleanser has a better effect and goes further…
Keep your eye gel in your refrigerator. This can help soothe puffy eyes or dark circles around your eyes. Cool eye gel can really make your eyes look refreshed after a long night out. Just apply it as you normally would to see results that are immediate and will last all day!
For added impact and eye-opening, beautifully curled lashes, you might want to use a heated eyelash curler. But you can get the same effect with a regular eyelash curler by giving it a quick blast of a few seconds with your hairdryer. This will help to hold the curl and prevent smudging.
Target the center of the top of your lip with some light eyeshadow (depending on your skin tone), this will give your lips a bigger, fuller appearance. When you highlight this part of your lip, you let it catch and reflect light in a way that leaves others with the impression that the upper lip is larger and fuller – which is certainly cheaper than cosmetic surgery!
To make small eyes appear larger, try lining your lower waterline with a white or peach colored eyeliner. By lightening the color of your waterline so it blends better with the white part of your eye, you can create the illusion that your eyes are larger and brighter than they really are. Be sure to sharpen your eyeliner and lip liner on a regular basis. This keeps them clean and ready to use. If you freeze them before sharpening, you will have an easier time. And always replace the lids so that they will last as long as possible too.
Do you want clear, clean, healthy skin? Exfoliation is essential! Exfoliate your skin regularly to remove all the junk, chemicals, and dirt you expose yourself to every day. The internet has lots of great recipes for exfoliators that clean your skin naturally and without costing you an arm and a leg, check it out! While you are at it – don’t forget your hands need to be pampered too. Hands are often overlooked in beauty treatments. That is why it is said, if you want to know someone’s age, check their hands. In addition to daily treatment with lotion or cream, you should exfoliate your hands once a week.
