Let us face it frankly – in today’s society, what we look like is important. It affects how people treat us, and how we feel about ourselves. The beauty industry is a thriving one, and there are many, many products on the market that claim to make you look your best.
It is true that the eyes are the window to the soul – your eyes can make all the difference between looking nice and looking like a knock out. Mascara can really make your eyes stand out and pop, and if you do not currently wear mascara as part of your makeup regimen, you may want to consider it. You can buy expensive mascara at department stores at their makeup counters, or you can purchase less expensive brands at the drug store. Both types of mascara – department store vs drug store – have their merits, and the quality of mascara varies widely from brand to brand. One step you may want to consider before applying mascara is to curl your eyelashes – you can purchase an eyelash curler from the drug store for just a few bucks. Blow your blow dryer on it for a few seconds to heat it up, and curl your eyelashes for five seconds or so. Then apply mascara for beautiful lashes to frame your beautiful eyes!
If you are not blessed with long, full eyelashes, you may want to consider using false eyelashes. False eyelashes used to be just for theatre productions and often looked too over the top for everyday life, but many companies have started making more natural versions of false eyelashes. They are typically applied with lash adhesive, and you can purchase an entire row of lashes or just a few small lashes here and there to accent the end of your eyelashes. With just a bit of practice, you will soon become proficient at applying them.
Make sure you keep your face hydrated and moisturized – nothing looks worse than dry skin with makeup on it! Your makeup will only make your dry skin look more noticeable. Purchase an intensive hydrating cream and use it as needed. Your face may get especially dry in the winter, or dry skin may be something you struggle with frequently. Make sure you are drinking enough water, as this will help your skin stay hydrated as well.
If your eyebrows are spotty and patchy, your appearance will likely suffer. Many women fill in their eyebrows with a brow pencil. Although this certainly is an option, women are increasingly opting to tint their eyebrows. This method involves applying temporary dye to the brows; the color will fade after a few weeks, but it gives your brows a fuller, shaded in look and saves you from filling in your brows each morning.
