Beauty is a lot more that just fixing your hair or swiping some makeup on your face.
It is truly an art form. It has so many techniques and products that require a keen eye, precisions and a sharp attention to detail. Do you have what it takes? Regardless of your answer, here are some tips to help you.

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.

Sometimes, when coloring your hair, you may find that the color you chose simply isn’t strong or intense enough for your liking. You can solve this problem by purchasing a second box of color, mixing half the product with shampoo, and reapplying it to rust-colored hair. Let it sit for only 5-10 minutes before rinsing and you will find the color intensified.

New products called mattifying lotions are perfect for any makeup kit because they can be applied anywhere on the face that appears slick from excessive oils. These lotions often have a creamy or heavy gel consistency and can be applied without a mirror; it also provides a smooth foundation upon which your makeup can be applied.

When you are on the go, be sure to pack a few Q-tips in your purse along with a packet of bamboo blotting sheets. This way, you can refresh the look of your makeup and preserve the look of your beauty. Blotting with the bamboo sheets removes excess oils that make you look shiny, and Q-tips can touch up your eye makeup or lipstick in a pinch.

If you find that your feet are dry and scaly looking and feeling, try using a petroleum jelly product to treat them. Apply a generous amount on your feet and cover them with thick socks at night before you go to bed. Your feet will absorb the moisture out of the petroleum jelly and will quickly look and feel much better.

As your skin gets older, be sure to wear the moisturizer that melts your skin’s needs for this age. Skin tends to start out oily and becomes drier over time, so it’s important to make sure that your skin’s need for moisture is being met appropriately. If your moisturizer feels heavy or is giving you skin trouble, it’s time to reevaluate.

To make close-set eyes appear further apart, apply your eye makeup so it is heavier on the outer edges of your eyes. Use light eye shadow on the inner half of your eyes and darker shadow on the outer half, blending the two together seamlessly in the middle. Then, to finish off the look, apply your eyeliner and mascara so that it is heavier at the outer corner. This will give the illusion that your eyes are set further apart.

Now you see that beauty is a lot more than haphazardly applying products to yourself. It takes skill and an eye for pleasing aesthetics. You don’t want to look slovenly, so why not take some time to learn how to do it right? The above tips should have given you some pointers on how to do that.
