During this sticky, humid time of year the last thing we want are globs of makeup. But long, luscious lashes – those are a year-round necessity. Follow these five rules to get perfect eyelashes without having to revert to time-consuming falsies or expensive extensions.
- Eyelash curlers are essential.
- Let lashes set between layers of mascara.
- Prevent “spider lashes” with a lash comb.
- Don’t layer different mascaras.
- Condition and treat your lashes daily.
Everyone wants that flawless skin that we see in magazines. When purchasing acne-fighting products, look for the ingredients glycolic acid, salicylic acid and retinol, which help skin shed dead cells that can clog pores, and benzoyl peroxide, which kills acne causing bacteria on the skin. These products can help prevent blackheads before they start, which is your best strategy.
If you already have blackheads, don’t pick at them yourself. Go to a professional and schedule a microdermabrasion session. The simple treatment involves a dermatologist or esthetician using tiny exfoliating crystals through a vacuum-like machine. It smooths the skin as well as help with texture problems and dark spots. Because it’s such a deep exfoliation, it will help to prevent or remove any blackheads.
Spring is in the air! Iridescent golden pink adds a glow that’s clean and chic. But there’s a fine line between shimmery and frosty: To keep eyes from looking like the latter, define them first with black liner, spread a cream or powder shadow across lids, and then pile on mascara. Illuminate cheeks with a dab of pearly cream highlighter-it’s the perfect balance for bright lips.
Looking for something, fun, sassy, yet still sophisticated to do with your hair? Put it in a knot! Whether you do two knots to have some hair loose, or multiple knots to create a bun effect, it will give your hair style a little extra texture for that day.
P.S. Don’t forget to put a few bobby pins in for extra support.
