Wear braids when you sleep Want to wake up with gorgeous curls or waves? Of course, you do. An easy way to make the most of your hair is to braid it before you go to sleep.

Get Flawless Skin with These Helpful Methods

 Most of us know by now that the flawless skin we see in magazines isn’t real. It may look beautiful, but it’s more likely to be the work of airbrushing than the latest foundation. But even if a magic formula can’t give us perfect skin, we can look after it to keep it healthy and glowing. If you want to improve your skin to get it as close to flawless as possible, you need to change your habits and routine. Try doing some of these things to help your skin get better and give you more confidence. Protect Before Treating As with many things, prevention is better than cure when it comes to your skin. You can help to keep it healthy and beautiful by avoiding things that could damage it. For example, staying out of the sun can prevent lots of problems. Although you might want to get a tan, too much sun exposure could age your skin, cause dark spots, freckles, and moles, and also raises your risk of skin cancer. Your diet could also affect your skin, so avoid too much junk and get the right nutrients. A lack of sleep can be terrible for your skin too, so get your eight hours every night. Regular Routine Having a routine to deal with your skin is an excellent way of keeping it consistently healthy. Although there are some changes in your body you can’t control, you can do your best to stick to practices that work for you. For example, it’s a good idea to cleanse, tone and moisturize regularly. If you know there are things that affect your skin, like hormonal changes or stress, you can manage them more easily. Deal with Dark Spots One of the things that people can be most bothered by is discoloration in their skin. Whether it’s a spot that’s too dark or too light, it can make your skin look less smooth and healthy. There are lots of reasons that pigmentation could be different, so fixing it could require one of a number of solutions. You can look up the causes of dark spots & removal methods online to read about the cause of yours and how to get rid of them. You get your skin back the way you want it with the right treatment and learn how to avoid dark spots in the future. The Right Products Although skin products might not be able to give you perfect skin magically, they can help. Finding the ones that work for you can play a significant part in giving you healthy and beautiful skin. Don’t just buy the most...

Why Accessories Make The Outfit Complete

 As a woman, a lot of our time can be spent checking out the trends for this season and then doing our best to fit in with them. It is essential to our success that we look good so that we can feel good in the skin we are in. Our fashion choices, makeup, and hair, are all key to what makes us look like we have bothered in the morning and cared for who we are and what we are about. Without that minimal effort, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Without our sense of fashion and style on display, we may even feel like we’re losing a little of ourselves. Choosing an outfit is never easy when we are busy. We have clothes for the office, and an entire wardrobe of great outfits for the evenings out. Somewhere tucked at the back will be some gym wear, and last but not least we have our casual wear. With so many different looks, it may require an entire cupboard to fit in all the different accessories we need to complete each outfit. One of the most important accessories of all is the wrist watch. Wearing a wristwatch is essential for most of us who have meetings to get to and busy days ahead of us. Very few of us buy enough watches to coordinate exactly with every outfit we have, but it is worth trying to think of the watch as an accessory that should match and enhance our style. You can find many different styles of watches like Shinola watches for women that should complete any look you are going for. Accessories like timepieces are key to finishing off a look. Whatever our preferred style may be, a good watch could really make a statement when it comes to completing an outfit. You may be looking for something with a leather strap and a good face. Alternatively, you may want solid gold and diamonds in the hands. Whatever your look, there are many styles of watches you can choose from to match what you want. Scarves and pashminas are also great accessories for completing that look you are trying to achieve. Choose free and flowing, or neat and crisp to get the style you need. The great thing about having a good hoard of accessories is that you should always be able to dress the way you want to and look like a lot of time and consideration went into it. Earrings and necklaces are great ways to fill out the detail of any style you are looking to achieve. Chunky beads or chic gems can...

Six Beauty Trends for Spring 2015

 Are you keen to find out what hair and makeup styles will be hot this spring? Keep reading for X beautiful beauty trends you will be desperate to try out! Image: Ashley Harrigan 1. Statement eyeliner If you haven’t already mastered the art of black liquid eyeliner, now is the time to do it. Statement wings on the upper eyelids add instant sex appeal to your look. For a clean, daytime look sweep the eyeliner from the corner of your eye all the way to the end and finish with a dramatic flick. Lengthen and thicken your eyelashes for a sixties’ vibe. Have a look at images and videos of Arianna Grande who pulls off this look perfectly. For the evening, go even bigger and bolder. Use exaggerated sweeps of eyeliner, keeping the lines straight and strong. Add dark and metallic eyeshadow shades to create a seriously smoky look. 2. Askew partings In the hair department, off-centre partings are leading the way. This is all part of the larger movement towards natural beauty, where there is less emphasis placed on achieving perfection. This is great news for those of us who view life as one big bad hair day. Partings should still be neat, but a relaxed attitude towards angles and lines is encouraged. 3. Berry beautiful lips We are accustomed to light, pastel lip colours in spring, but surprisingly this year it’s all about deep reds and purples. Dark lips aren’t always the easiest to pull off so do find the right texture and shade for your complexion. Purple tones suit dark hair while blondes tend to suit deep shades of red. Allow your berry stain to be the star of the show by wearing discrete makeup elsewhere. 4. Laid-back locks The seventies have been a major inspiration for the fashion industry so far this year. In keeping with this trend, wavy, free-flowing hair will feature a lot this spring. This look can be achieved in long, medium and short styles. If you are not blessed with natural waves, use curling tones, mousses and salt sprays to get that effortless look. Subtle floral hair accessories are perfect when worn with this hair style. 5. Brown tones Brown shades, from taupe to chocolate, are hot in the eye department this spring. This may not sound like the most appealing trend, but in fact it is very versatile and when worn correctly, can really enhance your natural complexion. Light browns make blue and green eyes pop. Deeper shades of brown add smoke and mystery to dark eyes. The beauty experts recommend wearing these shades as part of an overall bare-faced...

Enhance Your Lashes With These Pro Tips

 Enhancing the eyelashes can change the whole look of the face. By making them darker, longer, and thicker, you’ll instantly look more sultry and sexy. It isn’t just celebrities who can achieve this doe eyed look; you can too! Use these pro tips and you won’t be able to stop fluttering your lashes: Have a Professional Perm and Tint Make sure you go to a reputable salon for a treatment like this, or you might just end up regretting it! A perm will make your eyelashes curly and open up the eyes beautifully for around 1 month, while a tint will darken your lashes and make them look thicker. Both treatments together will make your eyes look sultry without the need to use mascara! Just beware that you may have to have these treatments done on different days to stop a reaction from occurring. Invest in a Quality Mascara There’s nothing quite like a quality mascara; honestly, it’s worth spending the extra money. It won’t flake off your lashes or leave you black smudges, and it’ll lengthen and thicken without making them look clumpy. Apply it by going over the top of your lashes first, and then sweeping underneath. This ensures full coverage! Use Lengthening Fibres Lengthening fibres can add a bit of length to your lashes before you’ve completed your mascara application. Simply apply 1 coat of mascara, then your fibres, then another coat of mascara, You can do this as many times as you feel you need to, just remember not to make them look clumpy. Curl With a Heated Curler Curling with a heated curler before your mascara is a brilliant way to open the eyes. I use a regular metal curler and heat it up for a few seconds with the hairdryer! I then do both of my lashes twice before I apply my favourite mascara. It really does make a big difference. Go for Eyelash Extensions If your eyelashes are naturally thin or short and you can’t do anything with them, it might be worth looking into eyelash extensions. There are different kinds though, so make sure you choose the right sort to suit you. There are extensions that can last weeks, and some that will only last a few days to a week. Some suited just for parties, others for long trips or holidays. If you’re looking for eyelash extensions in Atlanta, GA for example, try to get word of mouth reviews before choosing your salon. You can then have a consultation and go ahead with the treatment if you’re happy! Practice Applying Liquid Eyeliner Liquid eyeliner applied carefully can help the lash...
