How to Look Good Without Makeup – Really!

How to Look Good Without Makeup – Really!

How to Look Good Without Makeup – Really!

Do you long to feel the wind blowing on your naked face? Your completely naked face? Sometimes you need a break from makeup and it feels good to go all natural. Plus, it saves you time when you elect not to wear makeup. Believe it or not, you can still look pretty without makeup. Sometimes natural really is better! Here’s how to look good without makeup:

Look good without makeup tip – Practice scrupulous skin care

If you’re going to forgo makeup, you need to take the best care of your skin possible. Twice a day cleansing with a mild cleanser followed up by a moisturizer cream designed specifically for your skin type is a good start. An herbal steam facial done at home twice a week will cleanse your pores and give your skin a healthy glow. Follow your skin care regimen religiously to keep your skin in top shape if you plan on going without makeup.

Look good without makeup tip – Exfoliate your skin before you go out

This is one of the best kept secrets for beautiful skin. In the morning before you go out the door, use a facial exfoliating pad and a gentle cleanser to massage your face in circular motions for at least one minute. This will remove dead skin cells and increase circulation to your face, giving your skin a soft glow that’s even better than blush.

Look good without makeup tip – Get plenty of rest

If you’re going to go natural, it’s important that you sleep seven to eight hours a night. Tired skin looks sallow and any bags or dark circles you have under your eyes will be enhanced. If you don’t get enough sleep and your eyes look puffy and swollen from tossing and turning, try applying an ice pack to each eye for ten minutes to reduce some of the swelling.

Look good without makeup tip – Drinks lots of water

Your skin looks best when you’re well hydrated. Drink at least eight glasses of water per day to maintain skin hydration. Avoid drinking alcohol or caffeine which acts as a diuretic to further dehydrate your skin.

Look good without makeup tip – Wear a sunscreen

Just because you’re not wearing makeup doesn’t mean you should forgo sunscreen. Many makeups have light sunscreens which offer some protection from the elements. If you’re going natural, be sure to apply a sunscreen with a SPF of at least 20 to give your skin the protection it needs from ultraviolet rays. Choose a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB rays.

Look good without makeup tip – Keep your eyebrows and eyelashes well groomed

If you won’t be wearing eye makeup, make sure your brows are neatly groomed with no distracting stray hairs. Invest in an eyelash curler to open up and emphasize your eyes.

Look good without makeup tip – Keep your lips moisturized.

If you won’t be wearing lip color, apply a moisturizer to your lips to keep them soft and smooth. A touch of clear lip gloss can also give you lips and face a natural glow.

Yes, you can look pretty without makeup if you practice good skin care and life style habits on a daily basis. You may actually find that natural works better for you on a daily basis. Give it a try!

How to Use a Makeup Primer

How to Use a Makeup Primer

Using a makeup primer is the best way to create a long lasting, flawless makeup you ever dreamed of. Applying a simple makeup primer can do a huge difference to your makeup. If you learn how to apply a makeup primer, you can easily put on a makeup that won’t wear off and will stay perfect all day long. This wonderful product aims to create a smooth base for your makeup, preparing your skin for the foundation in order to achieve a natural, long-lasting makeup and a stunning look.

How to Use a Makeup Primer

Makeup primers are relatively new products on the cosmetic market. It is one of those beauty secrets many celebrities and supermodels use in order to obtain that glamorous look. If you are a true makeup lover then makeup primer should not be missing from your beauty bag.

Makeup primers create a perfect, even surface and at the same time control excess oil on the surface of the skin to get a flawless base for your makeup. Even if you think that foundation is enough, a thin layer of makeup primer applied beforehand can bring your makeup to a completely new level. Check out the major steps of applying makeup primer and get ready to create a glamorous look for the evening party!

  • The very first step of a successful makeup is giving your skin proper nourishment. If you put makeup on a dry skin, the result will be disastrous. Opt for a light textured moisturizer that won’t smudge your makeup primer. However, always make sure that moisturizer has absorbed well into your skin and no residues are left on your face.

  • Put a small amount of makeup primer on the back of your hand and take a damp makeup sponge then dip it into the primer gel. Apply it gently on your face with sweeping hand motions, starting with the area under your eyes then continue around your nose, forehead, cheeks and chin.

  • When applying the makeup primer, make sure that you distribute the product evenly all over your face, blending it well into your skin to get a perfect, smooth base for your makeup. If its necessary you can add a little more primer on problematic, hard-to-cover areas such as wrinkles around the mouth and eyes as well as the oilier T-zone, in order to prevent your makeup from wearing off. When you add a little extra product on these parts, use your fingertips instead of the sponge to blend the primer well into your skin.

  • After you have finished with applying the makeup primer on your face, don’t forget to wait a few minutes to let the primer sink into your skin and set on your face. As a next step you can continue with applying the foundation, or you can skip this step and apply just a finishing powder directly over your makeup primer.

  • For your eyelids, use a primer that is specially designed for these delicate areas. If you want to maintain your wonderful eye makeup all day long, apply the eyelid primer over your upper and lower eyelids then apply your favorite eye shadow. You will notice that a good primer will make wonders to your eye makeup, bringing out the best of every eye shadow.

  • Makeup primer is the secret weapon of every woman who wants to achieve a wonderful, fresh and flawless base for every makeup. Primers guarantee a smooth, even skin tone, without clogging the pores or leaving a heavy sensation on your skin. They disguise the imperfections of your skin, provide moisture all day long and create a perfect surface to apply a stunning makeup. Don't forget that makeup primers are always at your disposal, each time you need to look fabulous and perfect.

    The best makeup primers everyone's raving about: Smashbox Photo Finish ($39), Nars Makeup Primer ($33), Philosophy The Present Clear Makeup ($25), Revlon Beyond Natural Soothing Primer ($11).

    How to Apply Makeup Well

    How to Apply Makeup Well

    How to Apply Makeup Well

    A delicate layer of foundation and a soft, silky powder application, one single sculpting line on the lid and a delicious treat for your lips. When it comes to makeup, from diaphanous to the boldest approach, it's important to know ourselves and find the perfect flattering palette able to express our personality and emotions. Learning how to apply makeup well might be a challenging task, yet if properly used, it has the power to hide, enhance and transform.

    Makeup is an art. And not just any kind of art, but one that uses mascara, eyeliner and lipstick in order to define and enhance the beauty of your face. It has the amazing power of destroying insecurities and boost self-confidence. For the ultimate result one should first know her own face and skin type and then learn some basic makeup tips and tricks regarding its application. Still, always remember to stay true to yourself and your personal taste.

    Foundation. The base is an essential step in the entire makeup process. For a flawless overall appearance foundation should have a natural purity and a glowing aspect. In this sense, finding the right texture for your skin type and the suitable color for your complexion are two crucial things. Applying it using your fingers gives the advantage of an even coverage and the foundation enters better into the texture of the skin. Still, you can use a sponge, which works for blending larger areas, but it becomes rather problematic around the eye area. When using a brush, apply foundation with downward strokes. Make sure you blend it into the jawline and a little onto the neck so you avoid the unwanted distinct line between the two.

    Concealer. Everybody loves concealers. And what is not to love? A concealer has all the qualities of the perfect and most at hand makeup product. It corrects, camouflages imperfections such as spider veins or those annoying under the eye circles, illuminates and refreshes the face, among others. Well, it can do about everything and anything. However, following the rule 'less is more', concealer shouldn't be applied on the entire face. Choose a color that matches the one of our skin and an opaque, slightly dry texture. Apply it using a brush with thin, vertical lines onto the area you want to conceal. Next, blend into the skin.
    How to Apply Makeup Well

    Powder. Powder is the makeup product that adds a matte finish to your look. Applied directly to the skin, powder evens out and tones down the shiny aspect specific to oily skin. Translucent powder is a must-have due to its light texture. Use a powder brush or puff in order to apply loose or pressed powder evenly over your face using downward strokes. Don't forget about the neck and ears, paying attention and blending well. Always make sure you dab the powder brush into the powder and remove the excess powder. Use a puff for pressed powder. Always follow the direction your facial hair grows.

    Blush. A blush should be that final, perfect touch of the makeup process. If properly chosen and applied, it gives a healthy, fresh aspect to your skin. Using a brush, apply a small amount of blush across your cheekbones, going from the temples in. The creamy textures should be applied over foundation with your fingers. For contour, use a deeper shade of powdered blush in the hollow of the cheeks. Pay attention so that you apply the same amount on each side.

    Eyeshadow. Eyeshadows represent the playful, colorful part of the makeup process that allows you to have fun using different shades for sweet or dramatic effects. Apply the eyeshadow base in a lighter color on the entire lid, close to the lash base, using a shadow brush. Next, take a larger brush and blend the eyeshadow going up towards the brows. For a more natural look, use a sponge-tip applicator or an shadow brush in order to blend the edges of the eyeshadow.

    Eyeliner and mascara. For the ultimate drama queen look, the eyeliner is absolutely mandatory. Whether you choose a pencil or a liquid eyeliner, for a flawless application, pull the eye taunt with your free hand and draw a continuous line on the upper lid. On the lower lid, use an eye pencil and apply a line from corner to corner. For the mysterious smoky eye effect smudge using a small, shadow brush.
    Enhance the beauty of your eyes with mascara. Apply it starting at the inner corner of the eye and at the base of the lashes working outward and upward.

    Lipstick. When it comes to lipstick, it's important the way you apply it. You can use a lip brush for a more harmonious coverage starting from the inner towards the outer corner of the lips. For a 3D effect, apply some lip gloss on the center of your lips.

    Makeup for Bronze Skin

    Makeup for Bronze Skin

    Makeup for Bronze Skin

    Every summer we do our best to get a brilliant sun kissed skin. And the best way you can enhance the beauty of your bronze skin is by choosing the right makeup. Basically, the makeup steps for bronze skin are the same as usually, the only things that differ are the tones and the textures used, which should be more translucent in order to avoid overloading the skin. Following a few easy tips and tricks your bronze skin will look amazing and radiant.

    When choosing the right makeup for bronze skin you need to pay attention to several details such as your skin complexion, the color of your eyes, and the outfit. Avoid too strong colors and iridescent shades if you have too many skin imperfections, like wrinkles, acne or dark circles, as these colors will only accentuate them. Choose metallic colored eyeshadows. Red-fuchsia lipsticks are the best choices if you want to emphasize a bronze skin.

    Bronze powder
    The secret of emphasizing your beautiful bronze skin stands in one product: the bronze powder. Easy to apply, the bronze powder accentuates just how it should be a sun kissed skin. You can choose a shimmery silky one, or a matte one, depending on the effect you are looking for. Also, make sure the powder matches your skin tone as if you choose too dark shades you will only look unnatural. For a perfect application use a big brush. Apply it using a brush starting from the T-zone, and going up to the cheekbones.

    Enhance the beauty of your look by choosing a bright blush. From pink to apricot, make sure you pick a blush that matches your bronze skin complexion. Apply the blush as a final step, after the bronze powder, using a blush brush for an even application. You can use a blush palette, and apply darker shades on the cheekbones, and lighter colors on the highest point of your cheekbones. Try to choose a blush that matches your skin tone for a natural look. For a healthy glowing skin, you can also try a bronze-toned blush.

      Illuminate your look using shimmery and metallic colored eyeshadows. Opt for soft colors such as pale pink and coral. Your eyes should be accentuated through makeup, and they must match to your sun kissed skin. Use a darker eyeshadow on the outer corner of the eye, and a lighter one in the inner corners. For a night out enhance the beauty of your eyes using a brown or black eyeliner, and a waterproof mascara to elongate and add volume to your eyelashes.

      Glossy lips
      A shimmery lip gloss that gives the illusion of fuller lips is a total must-have during the sunny summer days. Choose it in yummy colors, like cherry red, apricot or chocolate. Make sure you buy a nourishing gloss for your lips as the sun keeps them dry. When applying the lip gloss you should smile so you apply it evenly.

    • During the hot summer days, the sun, the heat, and other aggressive external factors dehydrate and damage the skin. Therefore, it is important to take care of our skin every day by removing makeup and applying a nourishing cream. This way, our skin will get the necessary energy to keep a beautiful, glowing bronze.

    • Use highlighters to add a natural bronze to your skin tone. You can find them in different varieties such as creams, powder or beaded. Apply the highlighter to the bridge of the nose, above the cheekbones and upper lip, around the eyes.

    • If you are using a foundation, choose a water-based one that matches your skin complexion.

    • The 5 Don'ts of Pregnancy

      The 5 Don'ts of Pregnancy

      Pregnancy is one of the most joyful periods in a woman's life. It is a time where you need to take care of yourself as well as the life growing inside you. Here are some major things pregnant women must avoid:

      The 5 Don'ts of Pregnancy

      Being pregnant is one of the most beautiful things a woman could experience, but it is also one of the most difficult periods. It takes a little bit of time to adjust to the changes that are going on inside your body. The new life developing inside you needs to be protected from an early age, this is why pregnant women need to watch out for certain bad habits.
      Some women find pregnancy as being difficult while others find it to be very easy. It is especially difficult to give up a certain lifestyle and certain vices or habits.

      To ensure a healthy beginning for the unborn baby, pregnant women need to stand clear of the following:

      Smoking is bad for you. Pregnant or not, cigarette smoke doesn't do anything good for your body. It can hurt your health as well as the health of the people surrounding you. Due to the fact that there is a new life growing and nourishing from your body it is necessary to avoid smoking. Smoking can cause lung cancer, miscarriage, premature childbirth, slow down the growth rate, asthma, and so on. Quit smoking or stay away from smokers to protect your health and the health of your unborn baby.

      Well drinking alcohol during pregnancy is forbidden because the alcohol is absorbed into the blood stream and will affect your baby. There are so many consequences of drinking during pregnancy, it's scary. One of the most horrific consequences of drinking during pregnancy is the fetal alcohol syndrome or FAS. The syndrome causes mental retardation, and will affect the baby for life. Children who are born with this syndrome are usually born with a lower weight than normal, they will have a slow growth rate, will cry very much and they will have facial abnormalities, learning disabilities and poor reasoning. These are only a few characteristics of this disorder.

      Coffee isn't really prohibited during pregnancy but it is best to limit the amount of coffee ingested during pregnancy to a maximum of 2 regular coffee cups a day. Too much caffeine can cause palpitations, uterus contractions which may lead to premature childbirth even miscarriage. It is best to avoid drinking coffee during pregnancy especially if you suffer from heart disease or stomach problems.

      Dieting during pregnancy is not encouraged because by dieting you restrict the amount of nutrients necessary for both mother and child. In order for the baby to have a normal child development it needs healthy nutrients, nutrients which he will receive from the mother. In order for both mother to be and baby to get all the nutrients they need the mother needs to increase the nutrient intake by eating a little bit more, so dieting is out of the question if you want a healthy baby. It doesn't mean that a pregnant woman should eat as much as for two adults , it means that she should get nutrients necessary for both her and the baby. If a pregnant woman eats healthy she will not gain so much extra weight and she will feel healthy as well as the baby. After the baby is born with a little bit of healthy dieting and exercise every woman can get rid of the baby weight. All you need is a little bit of patience and ambition.

      Taking medication without your physicians prescription or approval is prohibited. Any medicine will be absorbed in the blood stream and by the babies placenta and will affect the baby as well. This is why pregnant women should only take medicine after the doctor approves it.
