Almost every woman – and more than one man – has a well-established personal beauty regimen.
There is so much useful advice available in the field that the odds are very good that a few quick tips can significantly improve the effectiveness of a beauty routine. Here are some tips:

Use a primer for your makeup. You can buy a primer specifically for makeup application. There are many people who even claim to use diaper rash cream or monistat cream as a primer for their makeup! Some people claim these methods are better than any primer you can buy in the store.

Coconut oil is a great beauty product. The natural oil of a coconut combats aging with its antioxidant properties, put it on your skin and it will not leave any residue. You can also mix it with sugar and use it as a gentle exfoliant by rubbing it into your skin.

If you have overly round eyes, you can elongate them by adjusting your eyeliner application. The outer two-thirds of your lower and upper lash lines should be lined with a dark brown liner. The two lines should meet at the outer corner of each eye. Finally, apply two coats of mascara to your outer, upper lashes.

Steer clear of using hair extensions to add volume and length to hair. These hair extensions are usually in textures and colors that will not blend properly with your hair and stick out like a sore thumb. Because the point of attachment is difficult to disguise, only use extensions when lengthening a ponytail or fattening, an up-to where it is not as noticeable and does not need to blend.

Be sure to apply moisturizer to your face before you apply your foundation. It will stop your makeup from streaking and give you a more natural look once your makeup is applied. Be sure to go below your jaw line so you do not have the dreaded makeup lines that occur.

If you are struggling with frizzy hair, you can try putting a small amount of hand cream on your hands then running it through your hair. This will help the stray strands stick together and ultimately hold your hair together more as a cohesive whole making you look much more beautiful.

When it comes to your eyes, bring out those beautiful baby blues and grays by using eyeshadow in colors like apricot, copper, and yellowish golds. Look for mascara and eyeliner that are dark brown with hints of brick, deep purple, or maroon. These colors will make the blues stand out brightly.

Getting enough rest is essential for your beauty. Not only will you look and feel more rested, you will require less concealer oriented products to mask your under-eye circles, prevent yourself from the early onset of wrinkles and shave time off of your morning routine that will get your day off to a better start.

The processes, techniques and products that make up personalized beauty regimen need not be expensive or time-consuming. Even though satisfactory beauty results depend on hard work, working smarter can save a lot of time. Tips like the ones above might be valuable keys to getting better results with less effort.
