Beauty tips, we know a lot. But are we sure they are helpful? Here We will share with you 10 makeup and care tips. For those who already know them, excellent! For those who are confused, these simple and effective beauty tips could quickly become your bare minimum for beautiful skin and a fresh appearance. Follow the guide

1 – REVIEW THE WAY YOU APPLY YOUR EYE CONTOUR CREAM

EYE CONTOUR CREAM

This is not a myth: applying too much cream around the eyes tends to make them swell. Soo, should we choose fine lines or puffy eyes? Rest assured, nothing prevents you from using an eye contour treatment … but don’t make a common mistake. Instead of spreading it abundantly over the entire area of the eye contour, apply by gently patting along the orbit (no, no, not close to the eye). The active ingredients will benefit the outline of your eyes from the care without overloading it.

2 – DRY SHAMPOO, YOUR BEST FRIEND

DRY SHAMPOO

Is it still necessary to sing the praises of dry shampoo? If it doesn’t replace a classic shampoo in the long term, it’s still the superhero product. Dry shampoo has no equal to add volume and body to your hair and facilitates holding your hairstyles. But the real benefit is that by allowing you to space the shampoos, it avoids you to damage your hair lengths, and slows down the fading of your colors.

3- MAKE A PLACE FOR VEGETABLE OIL IN YOUR BATHROOM

VEGETABLE OIL

Vegetable oil is one of those versatile beauty products that are often underestimated. Sweet almond, coconut, jojoba, argan…ect. Make your choice and give it the place it deserves on the shelf of your bathroom. You can use it to remove makeup (it is absolutely efficient, especially on waterproof makeup), and also to take care of dry hair, your body, massage … And to make your daily care more nourishing, add- in 2 or 3 drops to your usual cream. Baby skin effect guaranteed!

4 – DETANGLE YOUR HAIR BEFORE WASHING IT

DETANGLE YOUR HAIR BEFORE WASHING IT

It’s a stupid trick, and yet it makes all the difference. Before jumping into the shower, remember to comb your hair. This will avoid breakage during shampoo time, and allow you to use less conditioner than usual to comb out. By avoiding overloading your hair product, they will be less likely to be weighed down and regrease less quickly. Double benefit!

5 -30 SECONDS TO MAKE YOUR LIPSTICK LAST TWICE LONGER

LIPSTICK LAST TWICE LONGER

In the same way that you powder your complexion to fix your makeup, it is quite possible to powder your lipstick. How? After applying it, absorb the excess by squeezing your lips on a tissue. Then peel off a thick, clean handkerchief and hold it over your mouth. Then apply translucent loose powder brush over this thin layer of a handkerchief. The right dose will pass through the fibers. Your lipstick will have a matte look and the color will hold twice longer!

6 – APPLY YOUR MASCARA ON THE LOWER LASHES BEFORE THE UPPER LASHES

 MASCARA ON THE LOWER LASHES

If you find yourself regularly with mascara spots above the eyelid, this tip is for you. It’s a mistake we’ve all made with mascara: when you bend your head forward and open your eyes wide to apply it on the lower lashes, the upper ones – which are not dry yet – touch your upper eyelid and leave marks. Change your habits! Applying your mascara on the lower eyelashes first, you will avoid this annoying situation. And rest assured, while you make up the upper eyelashes, those at the bottom will have nothing to stain.

7 – TWIST YOUR WET HAIR FOR HEAT-FREE WAVES

TWIST YOUR WET HAIR FOR HEAT-FREE WAVES

You like to have pretty wavy hair but you don’t want them to go too often through the test of the heat-styling devices? the answer is very simple: Opt instead for twists: when you let your hair air dry, twist around your fingers while they are still wet. Make 4 or 5 twists on each side of your head, and secure them with a bobby pin. Once your hair is completely dry, scrunch it off with your fingers and lacquer it for an all-day hold.

8 – MAKE-UP WITH COTTON-SWAB

MAKE-UP WITH COTTON-SWAB

The make-up artists of fashion shows have understood for a long time: the cotton-swabs are not only used to clean the ears, but these small tools are also devilishly useful for makeup. We can’t even count their diverse utilities: melt a pencil khol, erase concealer applied a little too much, blur a lip contour…etc And when soaked in a few drops of micellar water, the cotton swab is also helpful to correct a line of eyeliner.

9 – USE YOUR LIPSTICK LIKE A CREAM BLUSH

LIPSTICK LIKE A CREAM BLUSH

For a quick and easy makeup, here is an idea that will simplify your life, no need for blush and brush, apply a little of your favorite lipstick on your cheeks by blurring the fingers, as you would with a cream blush. For a better10 – MASSAGE YOUR “PRETTY FACE”

10 – MASSAGE YOUR “PRETTY FACE”

MASSAGE PRETTY FAC"

Yes, you are right, this is no longer a time-saving trick, but incorporating even just 2 minutes of face massage with a vegetable oil into your evening care routine may have bluffing effects. Not only relaxing, but massage also stimulates blood and lymphatic circulation, promotes the elimination of toxins and impurities and restores elasticity and tone to facial muscles. The key is firmer skin, more radiant, brighter and softer. A particularly beneficial practice for mature skin and people with irregular skin texture.
