Beauty can be about a lot more than making yourself feel attractive. Most of the best ways to improve your appearance are also ways to keep yourself healthy. Learning how to cultivate beauty is not necessarily a sign of vanity; you can take many steps to make yourself look better and be healthier at the same time.
If your eyeliner tends to smear and crease, try dabbing a bit of a similar colored powdered eyeshadow over the top of it with a soft cotton swab. This will help to keep the eyeliner in place and make your eye makeup last longer before it requires a touch up.
Give yourself a quick facial at home by filling a bowl with hot water, and then steaming your face over it with a towel draped over your head. This will open your pores and help to eliminate black heads. Follow with a cold water rinse to close the pores and continue your makeup routine.
Coral or rose colored blush can make a square face look less angular, with a softer overall appearance. Try applying your blush on the apples of your cheeks and fanning it out towards temples.
A great tip when it comes to beauty is to not overdue the makeup. Often times novices have a tendency to put on too much make up and as such make themselves look worse. Use makeup sparingly, and you'll find you will be turning heads everywhere you go.
Symmetry is scientifically shown to be attractive to people. Try to maintain your symmetry when striving for beauty. This can apply to anything from application of makeup to trimming of facial hair. Just try and make both sides of your face look the same.
If you already have skin problems, you need to be especially careful when selecting make up to not worsen the situation. Avoid make ups with any oil in them, and sparingly use moisturizers, foundations, eye makeup, and blushes labeled oil free. Also look for non-comedogenic products, which do not encourage the closure of pores.
The tips above are just a few of the ways you can improve your appearance and your health. Today, beauty is about more than just looking good - it is about making yourself look better by genuinely being healthy.
