The Easy Morning Routine for the Everyday Face

No matter how old you are or what profession you have, a simple but classic look is always a good idea. Mornings aren’t for all of us and some have themselves and others to get ready and out the door in the morning. For a simple routine that will have you putting your best face forward everyday, follow these simple steps:

1. Clean, exfoliate, and tone first thing to start the day right. There are great products that even contain a hint of citrus to help energize you in the mornings. Cleansing and exfoliating can be done with one product; just be gentle and don’t scrub too hard. Follow up with a gentle toner. Witch hazel is still a classic toner that won’t dry and isn’t overly harsh.

2. Hydrate and protect before applying any make-up. Age-fighting and age-defying moisturizers are available with sun protection and a slight tent. These are great timesavers and good for the skin. If you’re not old enough for any “age” related products, be sure to at least include an SPF 15 moisturizer in your routine.

3. Bronzing mineral powders and soft blushes. Apply the bronzer all over and then give the cheeks a dab of color just out from the apple of the cheek and blend well. Soft peaches and pinks work best for everyday.

4. Eyes only need a little shimmer in light creams and golds for the lid then accent with a taupe or light brown in the crease and outer lid. Blend gently.

5. Brown and taupes are the most natural looks for eyeliners and mascaras and can be used on the tops and bottoms to create definition without drama.

6.Finish off the look with soft pink lipsticks or balms. Avoid heavy glosses or products with a lot of shimmer to keep the look professional.

Girls Night Out Makeup

Spending quality time with girlfriends is a must for any of us and helps to recharge in a way not other friends can. Whether Girls Night is dinner and a movie, dancing, or just a few drinks to catch up, it’s a chance to play around with makeup and get some honest feedback.

Go out a little bolder with some deeper colors and a few extra coats to make eyes and lips really stand out. Sweep a shimmering pink or taupe over the entire eye lid area and then create some drama with a thick, sideways V that goes along the bottom of the lid and just above the crease in rich colors like plum, emerald, and burgundy. Line eyes with a couple coats of black liner and mascara on both the top and bottom.

For the lips, line and fill in with a nude lip liner then top if off with a coat of dark lipstick like plum, red, or a rich brown. Dust lips with face powder then add another coat of lipstick. This will make color appear richer and keep your lips in place for all of the chatting we girls can do.

Experiment and have fun and then listen to the honest feedback only the best of girlfriends can give you!

Sheer is Sexy

With all of the overdone, more is better, heavily embellished looks out there, sheer and natural seems almost obsolete. But that’s not really the case. Most guys are attracted to the simple and sheer look because it denotes an amount of low-maintenance that is very appealing.

To keep looking like you didn’t even try to be as beautiful as you really are, stick with soft shades like blush and peach. Since we all don’t have the perfect skin to start with, a little concealer dabbed under the eyes can brighten up your face and hide any imperfections.

Top the whole face with a light dusting of loose mineral powder in a neutral shade. Use a blush or peach on the apples of your cheeks and lower eyelids for a soft, sheer look. To keep the eyes looking wide and bright, apply brown eyeliner by using a series of dots in the lash line on the tops only, and finish with the same shade of brown mascara on top and bottom lashes.

Lips will only need a little gloss in a taupe, pink or peach shade depending on your skin tone. All of these fresh, light colors will create a sheer beauty that makes you feel confident and alive.

Look Like a Celebrity

If you would like to have that youthful glow like Taylor Swift or Hayden Panettierre, you can!

Start by staying well-hydrated. That seems to be the number one celebrity tip or trick. Next, keep skin care natural by using plant based products that help keep skin healthy.

As for the makeup:  Apply cream blush to the apples of the cheeks and then dust the entire face with a bronzer. A sheer, dewy foundation will also give a glistening glow when topped with a bronzer. Keep eyebrows neat and plucked to perfection. This creates a well-groomed and styled look. It’s easier to leave this to the professionals and just go have your brows done.

For the eyes, heat an eyelash curler under hot water, pat dry and curl lashes before applying multiple coats of mascara or even false lashes. This gives the appearance of volume and opens up the eyes. When it comes to the lips, use one of two methods. Option one applies bright lipstick just to the inner parts of the lips and blends it out with a clear balm. Option two applies a darker shade of lipstick all over then tops it off with a lighter or shimmering gloss on the inner parts of lips.

If you can pull it all together, and wear a confident smile as your best accessory, then you are ready for the red carpet!

Look Like the Girl Next Door

With all of the fresh, young faces hitting the scene these days, who wouldn’t want to look fresh and new like Blake Lively? To help achieve this look keep the colors soft and natural.

Start with a tinted moisturizer containing an SPF of at least 15 and apply a thin layer. Follow that up with a highlighter across the cheeks, nose and forehead. Top the highlighter off with a peach or light pink cream blush and blend well.

To keep eyes fresh and young, use a soft brown pencil to lightly line the bottom lash line only. Blend using a toasted almond eye shadow that you will then apply to the entire lid. Eye shadow can have a soft shimmer, but don?t overdo it.

Curl lashes and apply a single coat of brown or taupe mascara to top and bottom lashes. If your lips are naturally pink, use a clear lip balm with conditioners and sun protection. If your lips are less than pink, choose a balm with a hint of pink. Avoid sticky glosses or heavy lipsticks, even if the color is light. Looking fresh and new can be quick and easy with the right colors and products.  Your girl-next-door look is sweet and fresh!

So Many Eye Liners to Choose From!

free eyeliner makeup sampleWhen choosing an eye liner, there are several options. There is the standard pencil, liquid liners, and gel liners. It depends on your own style and comfort. While liquid liners might provide a more dramatic look, gel liners are typically easier to apply accurately. The eye pencil is also easy to control but may fade or smudge throughout the day. Using a bit of eye shadow can help the staying power of any eye liner. MAC carries several eye liners in liquid, gel, and pencil form that have been rated as some of the best at fairly reasonable prices.

There are also some great options at your local drugstore for a good price such as Maybelline?s Eyestudio Lasting Drama Gel Eyeliner and Wet ?n? Wild?s Megaliner. Once you have decided on the type of liner you prefer, experiment with different colors for different occasions. For daytime at work or home, taupe and brown tend to be more natural looking and create definition for the eye without looking overdrawn. At night, black and bold colors like purple and blue create a dramatic effect that really stands out in a crowd. As always, play around with your makeup and see what you like the best!

Lip Liner – its not what it used to be

Many people feel that lip liner is a make-up tool of days gone by, but that is far from true. Lip liner is a very useful tool that more of us should take advantage of.

Now, when I say “lip liner” I’m not talking about a bright red or pink ring of color that surrounds where you want you lips to be in a perfect world. I’m talking about a finishing tool that allows you to define the lip area and keep lip color in place longer. Lip liners can help define lips and keep your lip stick, stain or gloss from feathering out into those fine lines. Trust me, that’s not a good look for anyone.

When lining your lips, be sure that the pencil is sharp but not pointy. Start at the center and draw a smooth line up, following the natural shape of your lips. Go slowly and strive to make one continuous line around the bottom lip and another continuous line across the top sides. When finished, fill in the lips lightly with the pencil, powder, then add your lip color of choice. Using a natural shade of lip liner is much more versatile and can even go it alone with just a little gloss.

Healthy Hair Tips

There is just something incredibly sexy about beautiful hair. No matter what style you like to wear your hair, keeping it healthy is a must. The majority of us has experimented with hair color, used heat styling products, swam in chlorine, or spent too much time in the sun. All of these things combined with other environmental factors can do some serious damage to hair.

In order to combat and repair some of that damage, start by using some quality products. Don’t confuse quality with price. There are a lot of inexpensive products on the market that can do wonders for your hair. Suave, Pantene, Fructis and Neutrogena all have quality hair care products that range from $2 to $12.

Start with a shampoo geared towards your hair type. If you are finding flakes on your little black dress, try Frustis’ new line of anti-dandruff shampoos for different hair types. The contain microbeads that help to exfoliate the scalp build-up that causes a lot of the flakes. Follow this up with a quality conditioner containing vitamins and nutrients that will help to replenish hair. For a weekly conditioning treatment, try Neutrogena’s Triple Moisture Deep Recovery Hair Mask.

Once out of the shower, remember not to brush wet hair but use a wide-tooth comb. Avoid styling products with alcohol since they tend to dry hair out even more. Many smoothing gels and serums come with added vitamins that help hair stay soft, look for these as an alternative to gels and sprays.

Finally, be sure to have hair trimmed regularly. This not only eliminates dry, dead ends, but also encourages new, healthy hair growth. So, however you style your hair, keep it healthy and sexy!

Christmas Nail Art

Here is an adorable nail art design for Christmas that was sent to me by a reader. I haven’t tried this yet, but it looks fairly easy!

Start with a clear base coat as always. Then give your nails a nice glittery green color. Next cut some masking tape into strips. Apply two larger pieces on the sides to mask off the triangle tree shape, then some smaller strips to make the tree garland areas.

Give it a coat of gold or even silver would work. Then remove the tape and cover with a clear top coat of polish. Beautiful.

Thank you to the reader who sent this to me.  I couldn’t do this without the support of my wonderful readers!  Happy holiday!  Please click my Amazon link to support my site!!  You might find some great beauty and makeup deals while you’re there!
