Beauty Problem Solvers
Here are some tips to help solve some common beauty problems, hopefully they help some of you
Polish Remover has run out?
If you need to re paint your nails and have discovered you’re all out of remover, try this trick. Coat your nails with a clear base coat one at a time. Leave to dry for a few seconds, then press a cotton pad over your nail and remove it. The base coat and coloured polish will come off in one quick move. Then your nails will be ready for a fresh new coat.
Straight Eye Lashes
Invest in a set of eyelash curlers. They make a huge difference. Gently squeeze your lashes between the cushioned curler pad. Then apply mascara and you will be amazed at the results!
Mascara begins to flake when it becomes too old. It is recommended to re new your mascara after 3 months of use. The constant air access to the wand and mascara dries out the product; this can be made worse by pumping air into the dispenser when replacing the cap. If mascara flakes on your lashes, the only solution is to remove it thoroughly and make a clean start.
There are 2 reasons your face powder will go patchy after you apply it. Firstly make sure you use a powder puff, sponge or powder brush when applying and do so over cleanly moisturized skin. If there are dry patches on your face then powder will grab and become patchy and therefore moisturizing will even out dry areas. Secondly powder needs to be closely matched to your skin tone. Make sure you try powder on in daylight when purchasing to ensure you get the right colour match.
Smudged Eyeliner and Mascara
The oils around our eyes naturally seep out throughout the day and will crease and move eye makeup. To stop the oils apply a concealer around your whole eye area – it works as a barrier to block. To stop smudging eye liner set the pencil with a similar coloured eye shadow, making the liner dry and it gives an extra layer for longer wear.
Red-toned skin or embarrassing blushes
Green and yellow tinted concealers and foundations are designed to tone down redness in the skin. Opposite to red on the colours wheel is: green. Opposing colours contrast each other out, applying these concealers to your skin will ease redness. But go lightly and use under your skin toned foundation.
Yellow nails are usually caused by wearing dark coloured nail polish without using a protective clear base coat, so always wear one to prevent this from happening. To cure yellow nails, rub them with lemon juice to remove the stains. Try going polish free for a week. If your problem occurs, consult your doctor to check that there’s no underlying cause.
Have a great week guys! Phoenix.
