Teeth Whitening Tips

The photographer holds up the camera, you pose your best stylish pose, and the shutter snaps shut. Your photo will be perfect, and you know it. Until, that is, you see the final result, and notice that your shiny white teeth are not so shiny and white. It happens to the best of us.

Each year, thousands of people spend their money on teeth whitening products. The reality of it though, is that many of these products are harmful to our teeth. They strip away things we need and leave them open to becoming sensitive! Don’t worry though! There are alternatives to get your teeth back into shape.

The next time you brush your teeth, break out the baking soda. Put a bit on your toothbrush and scrub away, then follow it up with a whitening toothpaste for sensitive teeth. The mix works wonders, and you might just be seeing some quick results in a few weeks!

If you can handle a slower fix, you can try just using the whitening toothpaste. All you need to keep in mind is to buy it for sensitive teeth. It will take awhile, but you will definitely see results. Alternatively, you can try chewing some raw vegetables, such as spinach or carrots. Surprisingly, they will naturally help freshen up your teeth, so that hot red lipstick will look incredible!

Soft Lips

Who doesn’t want soft, kissable lips? The surprising part of the thought is that they are right within your grasp!  Now, the normal way to achieve perfectly soft lips is to use moisturizing lip gloss or chapstick, but there is another way that isn’t advertised as much!

The next time you brush your teeth, don’t just set the toothbrush aside when you finish. Instead, run that brush over those lips. Really, it works! Brush lightly at them; it exfoliates them just like a good scrub would exfoliate your skin. There doesn’t need to be any toothpaste on the brush, though it wouldn’t hurt. (In fact, it would make them minty fresh, right?)

I guarantee that you will be surprised and impressed at the results of this strange little treatment! After you finish, applying a bit of gloss or chapstick will keep them feeling soft for hours.

Simple Sultry Lips

One thing people often forget is that simple lips can sometimes be better than ultra done up ones. A more natural look can go a long way, especially if done correctly. Many women tend to assume that without lipstick, they won’t look complete. In fact, sometimes lipstick can make a person look a bit too overdone!

Instead, why not try something a bit different? Forget the reds and pinks of the past, and take a look at your clear lip gloss. While it may seem boring or outdated, there is one simple thing that can do wonders for it: lip plumper.

Lip plumper is an amazing creation, and one you should try at least once. You brush it on like lip gloss and let it work it’s magic. Your lips will start to tingle within minutes, and as they do, they will puff up slightly. This can turn your small lips into a gorgeous pout people will be jealous of.

Now, you can leave the plumper’s gloss on, or you can put your own on over it. Some women find that if they wipe off the plumper and then put their own clear or tinted gloss of choice over it, nothing can top the look!

Simple has just become something that will turn heads.

Making Makeup Last

Whether you’re at work, on the road or even just sitting at home, nobody wants their makeup to fade away into nothingness easily! We want makeup that lasts all day, throughout any harsh treatment we may put it through. Sadly though, this isn’t a common thing. Most days, your makeup has faded by lunch time. So how do we fix that? Easy!

The very first step is to apply a moisturizer to your skin; followed by your foundation. Instead of putting your makeup directly onto the foundation, lightly dust a loose powder over it. This will help seal the foundation to your face. The first step to long lasting makeup!

If you’re a blush fan, keep in mind that the powder variety will stay on your cheeks longer. Mascara fans, always go the waterproof way! And those who adore eyeliner? If you try a liquid type, it will stay a lot longer than any pencil liner.

As for lips, if you carry a colored lip gloss with you throughout the day, you’ll always have it for touch-ups. However, if you prefer a lipstick, there are plenty that adhere to your lips and give you long lasting color.

If, after all this, you are still afraid of your color fading, there is one more option. Though it is usually used for theater, you can invest in a makeup setting spray, which will keep that beautiful look on your face all day long.

My Favorite Daily Lip Color

For my continuing reviews of my daily products, I am now to my lip color. For several years now, I have been a huge fan of CoverGirl Outlast All Day Lip Color. The color I wear most often is #815.

This product comes with two parts. First is the color part. It reminds me of a paint. You must apply it to dry lips. It won’t look good on lips that are already very dry or flaking though. After you apply the color, you wait a minute or so and then apply the top moisturizer coat. That part is clear and glides on very smoothly. If you wear it with out the moisturizer, it will feel very drying and uncomfortable, not to mention that it won’t look that good. I have found that a very light coat will give me a lot of color that lasts a long time.

As for it’s lasting ability – I have found that it lasts a very long time! Even all day, including eating and through some “light” kissing LOL. However, greasy foods will cause it to come right off onto your napkin. In fact the only way to remove this lip color is with some cold cream greasy type makeup remover, or some sort of oil based remover like vaseline.

It seems to be a pretty good value when you consider how long it will last. However I usually use up the moisturizer tube long before I run out of the color. Fortunately I can buy more tubes of the moisturizer separately without having to buy more of the entire product.

They have a huge variety of colors to choose from, and the long lasting look is definitely my favorite part!

Holiday Makeup Tips

The festive party season is about to begin. Is your makeup ready? Make it special by adding a few special items to your makeup collection. Start with some radiant bronzer, –not too dark though. You want just enough to give a boost to dull wintertime complexions, but not so much that you are trying to look like you have a summertime tan.

Next, treat yourself to a new fragrance. This can be for you, or just for your house! Get some holiday incense or spritzer. Choose scents that remind you of the holidays like pine, nutmeg, oranges, or cloves. If you treat yourself to a fragrance, splurge on a perfume that is sophisticated and not to sweet.

Finally, get in the spirit. If you’re going to paint the town red, start with your lips. If your normally wear the same lip color day after day (a bad habit that I am into myself), then it’s time to brighten things up. Normally I wear a dark pink shade of lip color for my daily color. Recently I attended an event where I wore a black dress and carried a red feather boa. I had bright red lipstick to match. When I saw photos of myself in that bright red lipstick, I was stunned at how radiant I looked! I am planning to wear it more during the holiday season.

Beautiful Braces Beauty Tips

If you’re a teen on your way to a beautiful smile, you may have to put up with braces for a few years. You can still have a beautiful smile in the mean time. These days it seems everyone has braces, so it’s not quite the social negative that it used to be back in the day. No more “brace face” for today’s teens. Now, teens can even have fashion fun with their braces, by choosing the colors of their bands each time they go in for an adjustment. It’s fun to wear orange or black bands at Halloween, or red and green ones for Christmas time!

Make sure you are taking good care of your teeth and your braces to maintain your smile beauty while you work your way to straighter teeth. For starters, keep them clean! Food particles hanging around in your braces are REALLY unattractive. Even food as seemingly innocent as rice can be one of the worst things to stick and hang around your otherwise pristine smile! Carry a little brush with you at school to touch up your smile after lunch. Keep your orthodontist appointments, or reschedule them so you can minimize the duration of your treatment which will no doubt be long enough already. Most of all, don’t be afraid to smile, even with your braces!

Tips for Luscious Lips

A friend of mine swears by her lip liner, and finishes it off with a tinted gloss. In her opinion a matte lipstick just makes her lips look old. A shimmery glossy look makes her feel kissably irresistible.

She prefers the “Makeup for Ever Professional” lip pencil instead of the twist up type ever sharp pencils which tend to dry out in the tube and don’t last. Then she applies a lipstick from Merle Norman followed by a moist lip color on top which has a shimmery gloss – Merle Norman “Moist Lip Color”. Her favorite color is “sugar coated”. The lip-gloss will wear off over time, and must be reapplied as the day goes on.

Makeup Tips for the Beach

This should be a no-brainer. It’s wet, so you want waterproof, right?! Well, actually you may just want to skip most of the makeup all together and just get over it. If you can’t bear the thought of appearing with a naked face, then keep it to a minimum: waterproof eyeliner and mascara.

Consider that you will probably have some big sunglasses to make yourself radiant and protect those baby blues (or browns as your case may be!).

I do recommend some long wearing lipstick such as Covergirl Everlast. This will also help protect your lips from sun.

Wearing your hair up in a pony tail or a clip is a good idea. It will help you keep cool and keep it under control. More than anything else, just do not let yourself get too much UV radiation. The damage will show up on your skin years later, not now.

Now break out your best swim suit and hit the beach looking your best!
