Ah, beauty. When it comes to making yourself beautiful, you have a number of options. With so many options, you might be wondering where to begin. Consider making use of the following tips for a start.
Fill a tiny sample jar or empty pot of lip gloss with your favorite moisturizer. You can put this in your purse or travel bag. If you have dry skin then apply moisturizer right away.
If you have striking brown eyes, you can play them up by adding eyeshadow, liner, and mascara in colors that are especially flattering for your eye color. Look for rich, matte shadows in shades of green, copper, and blue. These colors add depth and intensity to your eye color, especially when topped with a few coats of navy mascara.
When you nail polish starts to thicken up, you can add a few drops of nail polish remover to the bottle to thin it. Shake the bottle well after the addition of the nail polish remover to mix thoroughly and continue your manicure as usual. You should be able to get several more applications from the bottle.
If you have a high forehead, you can use common cosmetic products to draw attention away to your face. Using a matte, powdered bronzer or blush that is one shade deeper than your normal shade, brush the powder along your hairline beginning at your ears. Use a cosmetic sponge to blend well, then brush your hair over the hairline.
Before putting on your favorite sandals for the summer season, take the time to moisturize your feet using Vaseline. Before bed, slather your feet with a thick layer of Vaseline and cover them with an old pair of socks. As you sleep, the Vaseline will penetrate thick, calloused skin, helping to eliminate cracks and dryness. The next morning when you remove the socks, your feet will be soft and supple so you can wear your favorite sandals with pride.
Use cream cleansers, especially on your face. Soap can dry your skin and lead to skin that appears weathered and older. Keep your skin beautiful by using cleansers that are more like lotion and cream and less like harsh cleaner. Your skin will thank you for the change in beauty supplies.
If you want to stay beautiful, keep your skin healthy, and feel good, drink lots of water! 5-8 glasses of water a day is great, and even more is always good if you can manage it. Drinking plenty of water helps with bad or dry skin and many other ailments.

To whiten and brighten your teeth, add a little baking soda to your toothbrush once a week. Just sprinkle a little baking soda in the palm of your hand, dampen your toothbrush and press the bristles into the baking soda, add toothpaste and brush your teeth as usual. Don’t do this more than once a week since baking soda can be hard on your tooth enamel if overused.
To heal facial blemishes overnight, wash your face well and dab on a little pure tea tree oil before bed. You can also use tea tree oil full strength during the day or mix it with aloe vera gel for a light, natural, healing daytime moisturizer that tones and firms your skin.
To improve your lip color application, always apply lip balm first. The lip balm will leave your lips soft and moisturized, and will allow your lip color to go on smoothly. Try using a basic, untinted lip balm so that you don’t effect the color of the lipstick or lip gloss you’re using.
You can get the slightly dried makeup that collects in the cap of your makeup to double as an under-eye concealer. When you are out of concealer, you can use the collected makeup underneath this cap. It will hide tiny blemishes you may have.
To help increase the elasticity of skin and thereby reduce the chances of stretch marks, depend on olive oil! Everyone has olive oil in the kitchen and every week you need to bring it in the bathroom and use it in place of your regular moisturizer after showering. Massage it well into your stomach, buttocks and thighs for improved skin strength and to keep those nasty stretch marks away!
To help your lip gloss last longer, apply lip liner first. Fill in your whole lip with the liner before putting on your gloss. With the liner applied, the gloss will have something to stick to, which will help it stay on all day long. For the best effect, use a liner close to the natural color of your lip.
By taking 10 minutes a week to care for your nails it will help your appearance greatly. This is especially true for men, who very often neglect their nails and cuticles. A little regular maintenance results in much-improved hands. At the very least, nails should be cleaned thoroughly; they should be moisturized; and the cuticles should be gently pushed back.

Other times it is essential that you spend the extra money to get the right product.
