8 Free Beauty Tips- Make-Up and Cosmetics
Use these 12 free beauty tips to make sure you get the greatest benefit from your selection of make-up and cosmetics:
Free Beauty Tip 1: Colors of lipstick and eye shadow
When buying for lipstick and eye shadow, put a piece of clean sheet of white paper in your handbag. New lipstick colors can be tested on the paper along with a strip of eye shadow. You can then examine the colors in daylight outside, away from the artificial lighting in the store.
Free Beauty Tip 2: Fragrance
Use two light formulas together to lock a scent in rather than a heavy application of one fragrance which can overwhelm those near you. Applying a scented body cream and followed by lightly spraying with an eau de toilette or perfume of the same scent will still result in a long-lasting result.
Free Beauty Tip 3: Makeup Remover
Just use regular cream to remove oil-based makeup.
Free Beauty Tip 4: Nails
Make your nails look more slender by using a dark nail polish down the center part of the nail, make sure to be careful not to take it right to the edge of the sides of nail.
Free Beauty Tip 5: Color of Foundation
When you are already wearing a foundation and testing the color of a foundation, use the areas on your inner arm or neck. The skin tone in these areas matches the color of your face more closely than the hands and a good judgment can be made.
Free Beauty Tip 6: Blush
To get the best spot to apply blush, smile widely, take note of where the cheek rises to a round shape. This lifted part of the cheek is the right place for blush to look natural as a flush will often color this area of the cheek.
Free Beauty Tip 7: Concealer
For concealer to last hours, be sure to apply it in small amounts at a time in 2 or 3 layers. This method promises long wear.
Free Beauty Tip 8: Toners
With oily skin, use toners containing AHA's. Avoid toners that have alcohol as these can block impurities beneath the surface and dry out the skin. AHA substances help to smooth the skin's texture.
