Make Up and Hair Tips

Makeup is meant to enhance, not overwhelm your features. Most women have yellow-based skin. To get that perfectly natural, flawless look they need to wear foundations with a yellow base. Most foundations on the market however have pink or orange tones. Women wearing these foundations often end up looking artificial, ashy and two-toned. There are pencil eyeliners, liquid eyeliner, and cake eyeliners. Pencil liners can be used above top lashes and under lower lashes. Liquid liners should only be used on the top lid. Pencil liners can be used above top lashes and under lower lashes. Liquid liners should only be used on the top lid. Using a liquid black eyeliner in a thick line, applied to the top lid, gives the look of an eyelid.

Natural bristled brushes are best as they are soft to the touch and apply powder blush,face powder,eyeshadow or lipstick most effectively. There are matte lipsticks that are drier and thus longer lasting. There are sheer lipsticks that are moist and give your lips a stain. There are also lipglosses that are fluid and have the most moisture. Keep two shades of foundation on hand. One will be suitable for winter, and the other for summer skin. Cake eyeliners are used with water and can be used both top and bottom. After applying eye cream, apply a concealer with a synthetic makeup brush just under the eyes and along inner bone of eye. Use a lipbrush to fill in the outline with lipstick, ensuring you reach into every tiny crevice on the surface.

Try to avoid daily washing. The sebaceous glands are overstimulated, secreting more grease onto the hair. Thin hair can easily be disguised by a really good cut. Hair looks like dreads the same day and reaches maturity faster than other methods. You can control the size and shape of the dreads, anywhere from thick and smooth to thin and sexy. Change shampoos occasionally, especially when using moisture rich shampoos. Try switching to milder ph balanced shampoos. Curly hair that is over worked and over styled will frizz, and lack life. Also, curls can get out of control easily. Always use a diffuser when blowdrying which will help control the frizz but will not remove all the body.
