Beauty Aids Could Make You Look Young Again

If your skin texture is normal, then you can go in for
several types. You may go in for any of your favorite
brands, or opt for a placid mask that is great for the
thin-skinned areas, or utilize the sparkle in a bottle.

Dull-looking skin needs to acquire some sheen. The best one
for you then would be the peel-off type, which is an
exfoliating facial mask. And when you are in a hurry, go in
for the "fruity" mask (made from fruits); the fragrance and
radiance are both, marvelous!

If your skin is dry, go in for something that will keep your
skin moist, and prevent the loss of natural oils. It is
important that this mask penetrates into the deeper layers
of your skin and enhances new cell formation. Sometimes, a
scrub is also required to gain that special "look."

Finally, for the oily skin or a combination skin, a clay
mask is the best. This cools the skin, cleanses it and
hydrates it. You should see all those ugly blackheads and
excess oil disappearing like magic. If unwanted substances
are allowed to clog your skin pores, then your skin will
become toxic within no time. Hence, use a natural clay
facial mask once a week, and leave it on for an hour each
time.

Okay, now that we have got the masks out of the way, what
about makeup? Do remember, you are never too old for makeup;
it is a free world and you have the liberty to be yourself!

You need the following, to pamper yourself and come out
looking radiant—light foundation, concealer, loose
face powder, eyebrow pencil, eye shadow, mascara, liquid
eyeliner, lip pencil, lipstick, and pink powder blush.

- Everything starts with a base; so apply the foundation
lightly onto your face. Use the concealer next. - Give
importance to the area around your eyes, for you wish people
to notice your eye shadow.

- Your face should look translucent and not heavily made up.
Hence, dust it lightly with the face powder. - Use a
medium-sized shadow brush to apply the eye shadow. Use basic
brown for the eyelids. A darker shade will suit the outer
corners and creases. Finally, the brow bone can content
itself with light beige.

- The eyelids also need some grooming. When done, use a
brush to give an arched look. Highlight this look with the
aid of your eyebrow pencil. To match the eye shadow, let
this also be brown.

- Who does not love curled lashes? Well then, use your
mascara to do the trick. It should be black in color. Use
the brush to turn your lashes upward, and then apply the
mascara. The upper lashes, especially the middle, can be
thickened with the aid of the black eyeliner.

- Your lips need to be outlined first, before applying the
lipstick. The lip pencil had better be flesh-colored. A
light red shade of lipstick will look nice. Use a lip brush
to get that perfect shape. Blotting paper will remove the
excess.

- Now, use the soft powder blush on your temples, cheeks and
chin. Again, you can utilize a large brush for the task.
