Sassy Short Haircuts

Great Day! Many women love short hairstyles because they are easy to style and take care of. Busy moms and executives alike appreciate attractive short styles that can be dried and styled in under 15 minutes flat. If you are thinking about going short, take some time to view photos online and consider which short style best suits your face shape, there is nothing more eye-catching than a sassy, short haircut.

When considering a short hair cut, bear in mind that it does take a very long time to grow out should you decide that you do not enjoy it as you hoped you might. Other than the confidence and sophistication, short hair cuts are notoriously easy to maintain. Find a haircut that fits your face and when styled with minimal effort, still looks good. A pixie cut requires little to no maintenance aside from possible a little gel or pomade for reshaping when necessary. A bob or more graduated cut can take a little mousse for volume and smoothness and five minutes with a blow dryer.

A Simple Way to Apply Concealer

Great Day! Concealer can be worn on its own or on top of foundation. Applying base reduces the amount of concealer you need, but you can skip foundation if you prefer. Concealer can be smoothed on top of eyelids after foundation as an eye makeup primer. This creates a base for eyeshadow so that colors appear more pigmented and last longer.

Here's a simple way to apply concealer:
Gently dab concealer under eyes with your ring finger, which exerts the least pressure of all your fingers. Make sure you get some product as well on the inner corners of your eyes by the bridge of your nose, where shadows are cast. Blend the concealer into skin by lightly patting, not rubbing, to eliminate demarcation lines.

For blemishes, invest in a stiff concealer brush that helps with greater precision during makeup application. Stipple the concealer onto the blemish. Do not use rubbing motions, as these can erase the product you've already laid down. Still using the brush, stipple foundation around the blemish to smooth away any hard edges.

Using a makeup sponge, lightly press translucent powder on top of concealer to keep it from budging.
