Quick Beauty Tip – Gloss Up

 

quicktip-lipglossHighlighting, not the neon kind (we know it’s finals time for many of you), is a crucial part of contouring and shading.

Highlighters should be close to the color of your skin with some shine. Those with lighter skin tones should go for pearly shades while those with darker tones should use warm, golden shades. It is meant to bring light back into your face, but don’t go overboard. The goal is for it to look like natural lighting.

Did you know that in a time of need your lip gloss can be used as a highlighter?

The color of the gloss depends on your skin tone but a pearly gloss is the one to use. Apply a small amount on your brow bones and cheekbones and blend. This is perfect for quick touch-ups.

Make your gloss multitask and share with us how it worked for you!

Stay beautiful!

Blotting Quick Fixes

kendra spears matteWe all love the fresh face feeling we have in the morning after getting ready. Makeup free or freshly applied make up, the lack of an oily shine is something to celebrate.

As the day progresses though, we begin to notice an extra gleam on our face.

Side Beauty Note: The matte trend is on its peak this season, no wonder! Here are the ways to achieve the freedom from oil.

Blotting paper are oil-absorbing sheets that are convenient and portable. The thin papers absorb excess oil without smudging makeup.

Mistakes happen though and we forget to buy some or bring it with us wherever we go but the t-zone area does not aim to be our friend.

Here are some quick, cost effective alternatives when you’re in need. They all have one how-to: place on your skin, gently pat with your fingers. To avoid smearing your makeup, do not rub or wipe these oil-absorbing alternatives.

Notebook Paper: Who knew? Maybe you’re in class or at work but this item should always be within reach. Make sure it is the non-glossy kind.

Receipts: These can be found in your wallet, purse, car, counter or whenever you make a purchase! The matte ones are better absorbers than the shiny looking receipts.

Brown Napkins: Usually found in fast food locations or the food court, you can quickly remove the oil from your t-zone during your lunch break.

Toilet Paper: The thin ones, usually single-ply, are found in public restrooms and do the job quickly.

Toilet Seat Covers: It almost looks like the oil-absorbing sheets! We won’t tell on you, don’t worry.

Know of any other substitutes for oil-absorbing sheets? Share it with us!

Quick Beauty Tip – Almond-Shaped Eyes

Different eye shapes and how the makeup is applied to change the shape or enhance is one of the reasons why makeup is so versatile.

There are many ways to achieve bigger eyes and making your eyes appear almond-shaped is another suggestion. With the right makeup tools, you can achieve this seductive look.

quicktip-almondeyes

You will need a liquid liner or pencil liner and eyeshadow.

Use your liner starting from the center of the lash line and out. Make sure to make it thicker on the outer corners.

Following Amber Heard’s lead, use your shadow to reinforce the look. Concentrating the shadow on the outer corners will give the illusion of almond shaped eyes.

Add mascara to complete it and your eyes should appear brighter and alert.

Tutorial Tuesday – DIY Teeth Whitening

When asked what you would like to improve about your smile, what comes to mind? Whiter teeth perhaps, brighter smile, straighter – the list can go on.

Teeth whitening procedures belong to the cosmetic arena of dentistry. According to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry a brighter smile reflects youthfulness, warmth, happiness and good health. In a survey they facilitated, 74% of adults felt that an unattractive smile hurt a person’s chances for being successful in their career.

TT-diyteethwhitening

Tooth whitening is suggested to be done by your dentist but there are also many home tooth whitening systems available. Even so, professional supervision for teeth whitening is still preferred to ensure safety and effectiveness.

When we are not able to do either of the above or prefer a cost-effective natural remedy, we turn to DIY tutoruials like this one! With toothpaste, water, hydrogen peroxide and baking soda you can begin to notice the difference in your smile within weeks.

Ingredients:

  • One Teaspoon of Baking Soda
  • Small Amount Toothpaste
  • Half Teaspoon of Water
  • One Teaspoon of Hydrogen Peroxide

Materials:

  • Container
  • Spoon/Mixer
  • Toothbrush

Instructions:

STEP 1: Mix the baking soday, toothpaste, water and hydrogen peroxide in the small container. Make sure the ingredients are thoroughly mixed and look like a paste.

STEP 2: Apply to toothbrush and brush for about two minutes and rinse. We suggest doing this at the end of the day.

That’s it! Use the mixture once a week until you see the shade of whiteness you would like. Once it is achieved, use this teeth whitening method once a month to maintain that bright, white smile in full force.

Stay beautiful!

Bigger Eyes

Bigger Eyes

Alert eyes, bright eyes, more definition – your eyes are indeed the window to your soul. Let others see clearly by using these tips for bigger and brighter beautiful eyes!

 

 

 

 

 

Your prep time is always important. Calm puffiness and inflammation before applying any makeup. Anything cold works – ice cubes, cold spoons, frozen vegetable bags. Improvise!

(Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energy Eye Mask can be used for those with about 15 minutes to spare.)

Conceal to lighten and even out the under eye skin color. Dark under eye circles make your eyes appear smaller. Your aim is to illuminate the entire eye area so choose a slightly lighter and warmer concealer shade. Blend the product underneath the eyes and around them. Apply it over the lids to use as a base as well.

(Glo Minerals Concealer provides two shades for custom color. Use the lighter shade to also highlight the eye area.)

In the spirit of spring and new trends, use a colored eyeliner. Allure.com suggested a navy pencil liner that will make your eyes appear whiter and as a result, bigger. Vibrant shadows are also suggested. Choose shadows that appear luminous and add shimmer.

Shimmery eyeshadows can also be substituted for a highlighter. Either product applied to the brow bone, inner corner and in the center of your lids will show immediate results.

Don’t forget to groom. A well-shaped, arched brow will frame your eyes and can be the key to sealing your bigger and bright-eyed look.

What works best for you?

Stay beautiful!

Quick Beauty Tip: Perfume/Cologne Overload

quicktip-strongperfume

Floral, sweet, fresh and cool – there are so many perfume and cologne scents available that it is almost impossible to not find one perfect for you.

When you’re in a rush to get somewhere, it is easy to be a little messy with the perfume application and on many occasions, we have sprayed on too much.

An excess of  perfume or cologne can make others around you extremely uncomfortable. It may even cause sneeze attacks in large numbers.

Here are the different ways you can fix it:

(Gentlemen, this tip can be applicable for cologne as well.)

  • Soak cotton balls with rubbing alcohol. Dab it on the area of your skin where you applied the perfume on cologne. Alcohol will help neutralize the scent.
  • Use a fragrance-free lotion in the area of application to cover up the scent.
  • Use baby wipes to remove “layers” of the perfume or cologne – simply wipe away.

Tutorial Tuesday: Lauren Conrad’s Side Braid

The former Laguna Beach star and current fashion designer, blogger and author Lauren Conrad continues to make waves in the beauty and fashion world.

TT-LaurenConrad-SideBraid

Her side braid is almost as famous as she is! Date night, shopping or coffee run, this ‘do’ is great for you!

You will need:

  • Hair elastic
  • Brush/Comb
  • Hairspray/Shine Mist

PREP: Decide on a part. This braid looks great with a deep side part but a center part works just as well. Comb/brush your hair after parting it to make sure it is tangle free.

STEP 1: Section off the front of your hair and separate it into three parts.

STEP 2: Braid backwards. This will be a lace braid, where you only add in hair from one side. As shown in the diagram, Bobby (from bobblyglam.com) adds hair to the section of hair farthest from the face.

STEP 3: Begin lowering the braid so that you create a curved shape.  When you curve it downward, you will continue with a three strand braid. Don’t add in anymore hair. Secure the ends with a hair elastic.

STEP 4: Comb through the rest of your hair and lightly mist a hairspray.

P.S. Before adding hairspray to your hair, feel free to use a curler to create easy curls in your hair after finishing the braid!

Stay beautiful!

Quick Beauty Tip: Strengthen Weak Nails

As a nail polish aficionado, the amount of times I paint my nails, use nail polish remover and repaint on a monthly basis can’t be healthy for my nails.

In fact, nails that are exposed to that many chemicals can become brittle and weak over time.

quicktip-strengthen-nails

There are many nail strengtheners available:

  • OPI Original Nail Envy Strengthener
  • Formula X Strengthen Nail Strengthener
  • Sally Hansen Complete Care 4-in-1 Nail Treatment

But there are also steps you can take and home remedies that will do the trick.

Preventative Care:

Biotin is a known supplement that has proven to improve nail health. Nails take about six months to replace themselves so it will take a few months before the biotin supplements begin showing results.

Avoid acrylics completely. If the thought is to much for you to bear, then reduce the number of times you get acrylic nails done. The results will be significant and your nails will thank you.

Don’t peel off your nail polish. The peeling damages your nail by stripping the initial layers.

Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize. The number of times you wash your hands to the number of times you use hand sanitzer can also affect your nail health.

Home Remedies:

Olive oil and coconut oil are your best friends. Extra virgin please.

Option 1: Soak your nails for 10-15 minutes every day in olive oil. Do this for a month then twice a week afterwards. Olive oil will help to strengthen nails that are weak and promote nail growth.

Option 2: Massage coconut oil on your nails and hands, focusing on your nail bed and cuticles. Do this every day before bedtime. Put on cotton gloves afterwards to keep them moisturized throughout the night.

Do you have any other suggestions? Let us know!

Stay beautiful!
