At Home Summertime Pedicure

Hey Everybody!  Get Excited!  I’m back with another informational beauty blog.   Let’s talk beauty…Did you that you don't have to go to a nail salon and get a pedicure every week to have great looking toenails?

Summertime is all about wearing flip-flops and showing off those beautiful toes, so makes sure that you choose a color that matches your personal style.  At-home pedicure is easier than you think.  Here’s the tool you’ll need. 

Nail clippers
Emery board
Warm water
Clean towel
Cuticle pusher
Toilet paper or toe separator
Clear base-coat nail polish
Nail polish
Clear top-coat nail polish
Nail polish remover
Cotton swabs

Let’s get started…
Remove nail polish with cotton ball and gentle polish remover. Avoid rubbing too hard as this could cause nail scratching.

Clip and file your toenails. Use large nail clippers and cut straight across. Avoid cutting rounded corners, as it causes ingrown toenails. Shape your toenails using an emery board or nail file.
Use a buffer on tops of nails briefly to smooth down the nail surfaces. Don't press hard, which could damage the nail.

Soak your feet in warm water.
Push the cuticle back on each of your toenails. This will reveal the fresh new growth of your toenails and prepare the nail for polish.

Wash your feet with gentle soap and warm water after a few minutes of soaking. Dry thoroughly with a clean towel.
Dip a cotton ball in professional cuticle remover or olive oil and gently massage the toe until the cuticles are soft. Push cuticles back gently with cuticle pusher.

Massage a moisturizer into the foot and toes to keep skin soft and smooth.
Insert your toes into the toenail separator. This will keep your toes spread apart and prevent them from touching and smearing the nail polish.

Apply a base coat and let dry. Base coats not only prevent your toenail polish from chipping, but also protect from stains that occur on your nails with darker colors.
Apply nail polish to your toenails, one at time. Start with your big toe and move towards the smallest toe. Apply one coat and put a second coat of nail polish on after the first had dried. You shouldn't need more than two coats of polish.

Apply a protective top coat. Protective top coats increase shine and prolong the wear of your nail polish.
Use a cotton swab dabbed in nail polish remover to remove any mistakes or excess nail polish.

Pro Tip: When toenails spend a lot of time smothered in socks and shoes, the nails can harden and even yellow. Moisturizing your toenails regularly will boost your nail health and protect the nail from excess dryness.

How to Fade Dark Spots (Hyperpigmentation)


Hey Everybody!  Get Excited!  I’m back with another informational beauty blog.   Let’s talk beauty…Did you know hyperpigmentation may be caused by sun damage? 

Hyperpigmentation is the darkening of an area of skin or nails caused by increased melanin. People with darker Asian, Mediterranean, or African skin tones are also more prone to hyperpigmentation, especially if they have excess sun exposure.  There are steps that you can take to fade the dark spots, if you do them consistently over a period of time.

Exfoliate your face 1-2 times a week by rubbing exfoliating facial scrub on your skin in small circles, to slough off any dead skin.
Use a dark spot corrector like Avene D Pigment place it on the dark spots on your face. Rub it into your skin but only on the dark spots.  Avene D Pigment- its soft, velvety texture nourishes and moisturizes while restoring luminosity. Clinically proven to reduce and prevent dark spots after 4 weeks while evening out skin tone and restoring radiance.
Make sure to use a sunscreen during the day. Always use a SPF no less than 30 when going out doors.  The #1 reason most people have brown spots or sun spots are from the sun.
Pro Tip:
Enrich your diet with nutrients and vitamins. If you have an unhealthy diet that includes fast food, lots of junk food and loads of sugar, your skin will suffer from it. Eating right and staying hydrated with lots of water is extremely important for the health and appearance of your skin. Eating a well-balanced diet rich in antioxidants and low in saturated fats and refined sugars is a good way of preventing the premature emergence of these unsightly spots. Foods rich in antioxidants include berries, spinach, and sunflower seeds.

Makeup For Sensitive Skin

 
Hey Everybody!  Get Excited!  Get Excited!  I’m back with another informational beauty blog.  Did you know that water-proof products can strip skin of its protective oil and cause irritation?  Let’s talk makeup for sensitive skin…
Since fragrances can aggravate sensitive skin, look for products that are labeled "without perfume" or "fragrance-free." Do not buy products labeled as "unscented."   According to the American Academy of Dermatology, "unscented" products often contain fragrance to disguise the smell of the chemicals. Although makeup preservatives (such as formaldehyde, phenoxyethanol and paraben) can cause skin irritation, products containing water must have them to prevent bacteria growth. Compare product ingredient labels and choose products with less than 10 ingredients to avoid aggravating your skin with numerous preservatives. 

Hypoallergenic or mineral-based products are better for sensitivity.  Look for mineral makeup that contains no synthetic perfumes, dyes or preservatives.   Beware of mineral makeup that contains nanoparticles and bismuth oxycholoride.  These can irritate and clog pores.

Sensitive Eyes…
The skin around your eye is very sensitive and may react differently from the rest of your facial skin to makeup. Therefore, applying a protective barrier in the form of makeup primer around your eye helps to soothe the skin and also makes your makeup appear smoother. This will keep the makeup from being placed directly on your skin and could stop irritation.
Look for lighter-colored, powdered eye shadow because it contains less irritating color pigments than brighter shadows. Avoid eye makeup containing shimmer or glitter. If you use eyeliner, choose a wax-based pencil liner rather than liquid eyeliner. Liquid liner contains latex, which can cause an allergic reaction on sensitive skin. When possible, choose black eyeliner or mascara which may be gentler on skin than other pigments. Discard eye makeup after three months to prevent bacteria accumulation that can further aggravate skin.

Sensitive Lips…
If your lips are sensitive, use a moisturizing lip balm and lipstick or gloss. Avoid long-lasting lip color. The American Academy of Dermatology states that ingredients in long-wearing lip products are more likely to cause an allergic reaction. Throw away lip products one year after purchasing to prevent contamination.

Pro Tip:  Always remove all makeup before you go to sleep. Makeup can build up over time if it is not washed off properly and eventually cause deposits in and around the eye area. This can cause continual irritation.

False Lashes How To

Hey Everybody! Get Excited! Get Excited! I’m back with another informational beauty blog. Let’s talk beauty…I know applying false eyelashes can seem intimidating, so here is an easy, foolproof way to apply false lashes:

1. Curl your natural eyelashes.

2. Lay a mirror on the table or counter in front of you and look down.

3. Trim the outside end of your false eyelashes to fit the width of your eyelid.

4. Apply eyelash glue to the false lashes. Allow the glue to dry for a minute so that it will get tackly (slightly sticky, then place the lash directly on top of your own lash; then push it into that very fine space where the lash grow out.


5. Once the glue has dried, apply one coat of mascara to blend your natural lashes with the false one...

Give Yourself a Face Lift with Makeup

Hey Everybody!  Get Excited! Get Excited!  I’m back with another informational beauty blog.  Let’s talk beauty…Did you know that applying makeup can lift/slim your face and also make you look younger?

Before giving yourself a face makeup lift use a moisturizer, night cream and SPF to help tighten your skin and enliven your pores.   Let’s get started…

 
Eyebrows
Tweeze your eyebrows to achieve a more lifted look in the eye area. Use an eyebrow stencil to help you get a good arching shape that is neither too high nor too straight. Then apply light shade concealer underneath the brow bone using an angle brush. Follow with an eye shadow one shade lighter than your concealer.

 
Cheekbones
To lift cheekbones choose a bronzer that is a few shades darker than your natural color. Pick a bronzer that has little shimmer. Purchase bronzer from a trained expert that can help you choose the correct shade.  Dust a light line of bronzer from your hairline to the apple of your cheek. Put the bronzer in the area that is sunken in when you suck in your cheeks and not on the actual cheek bone

 
Jawline
To lift jawline apply your regular foundation over clean, moisturized skin Use a concealer brush to apply a liquid highlighter into the creases or jowl lines.  Apply a lightweight, fluid concealer over the highlighted areas. This takes off the high-shimmer, while allowing a little of the radiance to show thorough, making jowl lines less obvious.

.
Pro Tip:  Use a white highlighter on the inside rim of the eye to help whiten/brighten to give the eyes a more youth look

What is BB Cream


Hey Everybody!  Get Excited! Get Excited!  I’m back with another informational beauty blog.  Let’s talk beauty…Did you know that BB creams are another way to get skin perfection? 
In the cosmetics world, the beauty buzz is about the rise of BB creams for luxury and mass market retailers. The truth is, they’re not new.  The original BB cream stands for blemish balm made in Korea. The original products were just used to treat blemishes but now they’re for beauty or facial rejuvenation. Today the BB creams are much more sophisticated than they were when they started and much more complex in a good way. It has become a favorite beauty product for many women in Asia and the international markets.
Not all BB creams are the same you have to see what’s in that BB cream.  BB cream is said to be a substitute for foundation. The lightweight cream evens out the skin tone and hides blemishes. You can apply the cream the same way you would apply a moisturizer. You may also decide to apply your makeup on top of the BB cream; however, it is not necessary.

Apply Liquid Eyeliner Like A Pro

Hey Everybody I’m back with another informational blog!  Let’s talk beauty…Liquid eyeliner provides your eyes with the most dramatic look. It's perfect for a glamorous look.   Did you know that liquid liner slides onto skin, while pencils can pull and poke at the skin?   With a little practice, liquid eyeliner can be applied correctly without turning into a mess.  Continue reading…

Purchase liquid eyeliner with a felt tip. This type of liner is typically much easier to apply and goes on more smoothly.
Gently lift your skin at the outer corner of your eye with your index finger to pull your eyelid taut. Use a hands-free magnified mirror to get a close view of the eye area.

Draw a line from the midpoint of the eye to the outer corner with the tip of the liquid eyeliner. If you are going for a cat eye look, extend the line just beyond the outer corner.

Draw a line from the inner corner of your eye to meet the line at the midpoint. Applying the line as two short lines gives you greater control. But if this is still too difficult, apply it as three or more short lines that meet up, creating one long line from the inner to the outer corner of the upper lid.
Pro Tip:  Have eye makeup remover on hand.  If you mess up, you can simply apply some of the solution to a cotton swab to wipe away any mistakes.
