Every woman wants to look her absolute best – and that is why Lionesse put together this fabulous little guide on how you can look as gorgeous as all of the top beauty queens of the world, without trying exceptionally hard. Sometimes, less is more. If you want to learn how you can get the look, read on.
Take Proper Care of Your Skin
One of the biggest things you can do to be as flawless any beauty queen out there is to take good care of your skin. Cleaning all of your makeup products off of your face and neck before bed is essential to maintaining good, healthy skin. Cleansing the skin morning and night is also essential – and ensuring you are using products made for your skin type is of the greatest importance. Moisturizing your skin morning and night is also essential – but be sure to steer clear of using day moisturizers at night time, because many of them have sunscreen infused within the product, which can lead to breakouts if left to sit on and in your pores all night long. Exfoliation weekly with a non-abrasive exfoliating polish or mask will ensure your skin looks flawless and fresh. And never, ever scrub your skin in any harsh type of motion. Always use small circles with your fingertips when cleansing, applying moisturizer, or exfoliating.
Layer Your Eyeliner
It may seem redundant, but layering your eyeliner is a great way to make sure your liner looks flawless all day long. Simply line your lash line with a pencil liner, followed by the same with a liquid liner. This will keep your eyeliner in place all day long and give you a flawless, fail free look.
Heat Up Your Lash Curler
Running your eyelash curler under hot water for a few seconds, or blowing hot air at it with your blow dryer, can give you a better curled lash that lasts.
Give Your Eyes a Wider Appearance
Using a white eyeliner pencil, line your waterline – or, the inner portion of the bottom lash line – with the pencil. This will give the eyes a more widened, opened appearance, and is a trick that has been used on beauty queens for ages.
Business Cards for Beauty
Use a business card to get the perfect mascara look. Simply take the card in one hand, hold it on the inner lash line, and apply mascara with the other hand. This way, your mascara will evenly coat every lash – and you won’t end up with clumps or uneven lashes. Plus – this is a cool way to actually make use of all of those useless business cards you’ve been collecting that you don’t know what to do with.
If Wrinkles Abound, Nix the Powder
If you want to have a flawless face, yet you have aging signs like wrinkles and fine lines, do away with the powder. Rather, opt for a tinted moisturizer or even a dewy foundation to provide even coverage while filling in lines and wrinkles. As a general rule, women over 35 should forgo the powder completely.
DIY Tinted Moisturizer
Rather than splurging on a pricey container of tinted moisturizer, make your own. Simply put some of your favorite moisturizer into a small container, and add a drop of your favorite liquid foundation. Mix, and apply. Simple, easy and flawless.
Don’t Ever Forget The Sunscreen!
It doesn’t matter where you live or what you do, sunscreen should be a part of your daily skin routine. Any time you plan on stepping out the door, apply a good facial and body sunscreen to protect yourself from those harmful rays.
