Makeup Beginner Tips

Make up helps us look more presentable and polished. One should also wear the right makeup at the right time and place. Today I have a couple of tips that will guide the girls at the beginner stage.

  • If you are on a budget and still want to invest in some good products, go for drugstore makeup. Some drugstore brands do equal justice as the high end makeup.
  • Comprehend your skin before you step into makeup. Not all forms of makeup suits our skin, for example, I have dry cheek, therefore, I avoid powdered blush, contour and highlight and go for liquid or creme and are moisturizing for my skin.
  • Makeup just adds to your beauty, so you need to keep the skin healthy too, so that the makeup does not look cakey and has a good finish. By saying healthy skin, I mean that the skin should have a good texture and also even. Several bumps on the skin even after makeup is not good to look at.
  • Watching tutorials and getting the look is okay for practice, but to be an expert, one should know how to play with the colors and create one’s own looks, that not only co- ordinate, but also go with the occasion.

My Favorite Face Masks.

Face masks play an important role in a skincare regime as it has it’s own task to perform. Face masks pull the impurities out from the pores helping the skin to breathe properly and stay healthy. In addition to this, it also makes the skin more smooth and enhances the texture of the skin.

Following are some of my favorite masks :

  • Everyuth Naturals Golden Glow Peel Off Mask : It peels away dead cells, dirt and bacteria from within from the skin pores, stimulates blood circulation and oxygen supply. This is a very good option for college students as it is easily available and also does not burn a hole in your pocket.

    I also do a couple of DIYs that are effective on my skin:

  •  Fullers Earth face mask : Take a teaspoon of the clay and mix it with a teaspoon of lemon juice and rosewater each. Mix it well to make a paste. Apply on the skin evenly. Wait until the mask dries and then wash it off. This mask in particular creates a cooling sensation and reduces the size of the pores.
  • Turmeric, flour, cinnamon face mask : This face mask removes the blackheads or whiteheads present in the pores because of the presence of the cinnamon. Turmeric powder helps in removing the tan.

Face masks should be applied twice or thrice in a week. Some of the masks are believed to have skin tightening properties and also prevent wrinkles, making the skin tone even.

I hope you found this helpful.

Reduce Large Pores.

Large pores is the most talked about problem when it comes to the people with oily skin. Where large pores are one of the cons of the oily skin, this skin type also has a few pros that one should feel fortunate about.

  • Oily skin gets less wrinkles , and therefore people with oily skin age very late.
  • Oily skin has that natural glow without the use of highlighter.

Being oily can prove to be a blessing ,if you take care of your skin very nicely.

WHAT CAUSES LARGE PORES?

The oil glands present underneath our skin produces oil to counter the dryness, in the case of oily skin, it is a bit more. The oils reach the surface of the skin through the pores present on the skin. The pores when not cleaned, swell up and appear larger, hence the large pores.

HOW TO REDUCE THE LARGE PORES ?

  1. Clean : Keep your pores clean so that they are not clogged and do not appear large. You can use a good cleanser that removes all the dirt from the pores. The accumulation of dust and grime also make them appear large.
  2. Do not wash too often : People sometimes think that oil should be removed from the skin as soon as possible. But the truth is that, the glands will secrete more oil to keep the skin moisturized. Washing the face two times a day is more than enough.
  3. Scrub : Scrub of the blackheads or other impurity and unclog the pores. Always use the scrub with smaller granules so that no area is irritated. Never scrub too often , because it can irritate the pores producing more oils.
  4. Tone : Always use a toner post cleansing. It reduces the size of the pores making the skin tight. Toner should be used on a daily basis. One can use green tea, rosewater or even rice water as a toner.
  5. Clay masks : Clay masks are known to stick to the impurity and clean the pores. I personally recommend to use fullers earth with some rose water or aloe vera gel to create a paste and then apply on the skin. This mask in particular creates a cooling sensation and reduces the size of the pores.
  6. Ice : Ice is used for the instant reduction in the size of the pores and also to add a shine to the skin. Hold a cube of ice in a piece of cloth, and rub over your face, especially around and over the nose where you get the visible pores.

The Himalaya Herbals Oil Clear Lemon Face Wash smells very similar to Himalaya Herbals Purifying Neem Face Wash. One can feel the presence of lemons in it but in traces only.
