Preparing your face for the make-up!

How to prepare the face for the make-up application

Make-up needs the face be clear, fresh and smooth. Therefore, the woman has to prepare her face for makeup in a healthy way following some certain steps:

First, you need to know your skin type in order to choose the suitable cleanser for instance if your skin is oily, you need to choose and oil-free cleanser. However, if your skin is dry, moisturizing cleanser is your best choice.

Second, use a face toner in order to remove the traces left by the cleaner. If your skin is oily, alcoholic lotions are your best choice, but it is not necessary to use face toners. On the other hand, if your skin is sensitive, refuge to the mild toners to clean your skin.

Third, it is agreed that makeup is easier to apply on a moisturized skin, so try to apply cream on wet skin that it would absorb more cream and therefore you will get a perfect makeup application and best look. Remember using a moisture with an SPF; press it onto your skin, do not rub it in which would stimulate the skin cells and allow the ingredients of the moisturizer to seep into it.

The final step of the pre-makeup phase is to use the face primer. You have to look for a primer that silicon is one of its main ingredients in order to get a smooth and ready face for the makeup application. Besides, the primer hinder mixing the oils of the face with your makeup, so you will stand out with a last longer makeup.

 

Makeup Application

When applying makeup, you need to consider the different cosmetics in a way that helps you to get the prettiest look and here we are demonstrating you the professional use for each product and how you can benefit from them easily.

Foundation: After preparing the face and cleaning it, it is time to cover the face with a foundation that goes with your skin color in order to get a more natural look. The trend now goes with applying the contouring makeup, which means having dark and light parts to get a slimmer face. All you need for the contouring are a dark and a light foundation from the same brand, a concealer, a light powder and a blending brush.

 

 

How to apply contouring makeup:

After cleaning the moisturized face, with the dark foundation try to draw a line upwards past the lash line and extend it almost to the hairline, you can also apply this below your lips and upwards to list the face. Now, add contouring to areas you want to define or slim down for example your chine, jawline cheekbones and nose.  With your blending brush start mixing the foundation, begin from the outside along the hairline that would help your face look slimmer. After everything is blended, set the light parts with a translucent and the dark parts with a little bronzer. Your face is ready now to add your makeup, i.e. lipstick, mascara and blusher.

Now it is time to eyes makeup:

The first thing people notice about you is your eyes and your eyebrows. The trend now is having big, strong and full eyebrows; they are considered as the frame of your eyes, so you should always keep them in check.

How to get thick eyebrows:

Mark your eyebrow with a special pencil that goes with your skin color and you can cover the extra hair with a light line of concealer if you do not want to remove them. The concealer line would give you the look of the instant eyebrow removal even if they were not.

Then take your sharpened pencil and draw in any open spaces with short, irregular length strokes to stimulate real hair (fill in the spaces). Moreover, adding a powder that goes with your skin color would help you fill in your eyebrows and get the prettiest look. You could also use eyeshadow that goes with your skin. MAC eyeshadows always help in this technique. Click here to see more info about face makeup tips!

Concealer

Be creative in your application for your make up and use concealer that is lighter than your face color to cover the dark spots, under-eye circles and define your eyebrow.

Mascara

Every woman has her way in applying mascara and definitely, no one is necessarily the right way because if the results satisfy you and give you natural curled lashes, then it is great and you have to continue using this technique. You can choose the brand you see that it is perfect for your lashes. I prefer Maybelline mascara for the waterproof mascara type, but if you prefer curled thick lashes that last longer, you are greatly recommended to use the Max Factor Xperience mascara as it gives you 3 times volume and you will enjoy fuller, thicker and lifted lashes like celebrities. On the other hand, if you have many small lashes at the beginning of your eye and face a difficulty in curling them using the normal mascara brush, try to buy the fish brush that has some small parts to help you curl those unreached lashes.

Lipstick trick.

After you have applied your lipstick, use a tissue over your lips and with a suitable brush dust some translucent powder over the tissue; this way shall help you get time-longer lipstick.

If you use a red lipstick try to avoid the too much makeup, which means that the red lipstick should be the only accent in your makeup; your eyes should have mascara and eyeliner ONLY.

The main cause of your limp sticky hair is the excessive sebum production. Therefore, it is always recommended not to massage your hair while cleaning in order not to stimulate sebaceous glands. Hair experts always advise women of oily hair to wash it with warm water.

The best Shampoo

Try to avoid the shampoo that bills itself as moisturizing or conditioning. You do not want to add more moisture to your hair. If dandruff is also a problem, which it often is with oily hair, try to use the kind of dandruff treating shampoo that contains selenium and zinc. I think Vichy’s Dercos Oil Control shampoo can be your best hair treatment if you are suffering a sticky hair.

Conditioner

In most cases, you are in no need for conditioners because your hair is already creamy. However, if you want to use it, try to choose a conditioner from the same brand of your shampoo and apply it only on your tips.

Dry hair / Hair Straightening Tools

The second type of hair is the dry, which is considered the damaged hair. Women of dry hair suffer always from a difficult to style it, so experts tried their best to provide them with the best and most suitable shampoo and treatment serum. Women of dry hair have to look for the products that are full of nourishment and hydration to have their hair fresher and easier to style. Moreover, they have to wash their hair with cold water and follow it up with a conditioning mask. The most important thing is the hair styling tools. It is recommended to use an appropriate straightener and curling iron for your hair. Check for some of the best straighteners and iron reviews here in www.beautilab.com

The Best Shampoo

Dry hair women need to use the volumizing shampoos in order to add body to their hair. Therefore, you have to check the ingredients list before deciding which shampoo to purchase; try to choose the one that contains the coconuts oil, which is the best emollient in hair care. On the other hand, avoid products that include sodium for it let your hair seems drier and needs more hydrating. Serie Expertby L`Oreal Intense Repair shampoo is your best choice for your damaged dry hair for it contains natural substances that treat the deep roots of the hair. There are many other shampoos women can use like: MOP c system, Aveda and Louis Galvin.

The Best Conditioner

You need to use a moisturizing conditioner in a way that allows your scalp receive the least amount of the conditioner. Look for the conditioners that include in their ingredients the natural oils and proteins. You are the best to judge your hair, so if you see that it is fully damaged; it is OK to leave-in some of the conditioner on the ends of your hair, which would help in the treatment process. L`Oreal products is also recommended here.

Color-treated hair

Most women tend to have the most impressive and stylish hair colors, following the latest hair-coloring fashion. However, these colors tend to fade their hair and lose its shine. Color-treated hair is the most type of hair that needs the lady to be careful of some factors,

i.e. the temperature of the washing water, the type of the shampoo and its ingredients and what type of conditioner to use. She has to consider them because the chemicals that were used in coloring her hair have affected it and she needs to be careful about the treatment productions. Experts have exerted their extremist efforts to provide this type of women the best serums and shampoos.

Shampoo

We all agree that colors add fade to hair, but as long as you have spent your money at the salon to get that style you have to look for a color-preserving shampoo that will not strip out these added highlights. Therefore, you are recommended to use Biolage Delicate Care Shampoo for it protects your hair from fading, protect your beautiful hair color and helps you to have a fresh hair all the day.

Conditioner

For conditioners, experts always recommend to use the products that contain UV filters that work like sunscreen to prevent color fading. L’Oreal EverPure UV Protect Spray can be your best choice to protect your colored hair.

Men’s Hair Care

Nothing is good as having good, healthy and fine hair.  It’s impossible for hair to be healthy since hair cannot be classified as a living thing. I like to use the expression “well treated” hair.

Obviously, a nice looking head of hair starts with an extraordinary looking hair style.  Like your automobile, your hair needs care in order to defend quality, pliability, and sparkle.  Below are the tips for men hair care.

Perfect Drying

One of the greatest reasons men’s harm their hair is the use of towel drying.

The best strategy to Dry Hair without Damaging It

At the point when hair is wet, it is vulnerable to harm. At the point when the hair is rubbed with a towel, a portion of the hairs get to be tangled in the strings of the towel and get extended to the limit, bringing about harm to the fingernail skin (the shingle-like external layer of the hair), frizz and split stops. To towel dry appropriately, shake out the abundance water and stroke your hair in the path it develops, instead of rubbing the hair with the towel. Drying takes time, yet after a couple of hair styles, differences in appearance will be seen with the way your hair looks. Blow drying is another typical reason for harm to the hair. Extreme blow drying can dry out the hair and scalp. In case you want to utilize a blow dryer, apply a warm styling splash or detangler to coat the hair and shield it from harm, utilize a wide-tooth brush to avoid pulling, and leave the hair marginally moist. This will avoid over drying the hair.

Cooling Off

Nothing feels superior to a steaming shower, however its wreaking destruction on your hair and scalp.

Chemical Treatments should be avoided.

Frequently shading or perming hair can result to harmed, dry, and dull. I advice you abstain from at-home chemical substances and look for a decent beautician for such administrations. A beautician will know how to set up your hair and pick the best items for your hair forms. Results from trained personnel will look more ordinary than those which can be made at home.

Utilize a Good Shampoo and Conditioner

A decent cleanser and conditioner will help rinse the hair, include dampness and flexibility, and smooth the fingernail skin to include sparkle.

 

Utilize The Right Tools

Try not to utilize a brush on wet hair, when the hair is highly susceptible. Combing through wet hair, utilize a wide-toothed brush and tenderly work out any tangles. Keep away from warmed equipments, for example, blow dryers or irons which can dry and harm hair. Materials you have to trim your hair are; Comb, scissors and clippers.

Stay Healthy

The state of your hair is frequently an impression of the general fitness of your body. Eat well, work out, beverage a lot of water, get enough rest and stress should be reduces. Doing as such will bring about a healthier scalp and extraordinary looking hair. Living great and staying fit will build the rate of hair development.

Keep It Trimmed

The best way to get rid of hurt hair is to remove the hurt region, keeping your hair trimmed regularly will help discard split tops. Despite the way you’re building up your hair out, endeavor to get it trimmed about like five to six weeks, yet make it clear to your hair stylist or beautician that you want sufficient hair remove  so that you can injury free..

Decrease Frizz

Low sogginess and protein in the hair can achieve frizz. To minimize this issue, use a better dampening conditioner. A slimy, smoothing serum can be used to enhance sparkle and give the hair a smoother appearance.

Hair begins from the scalp, so for hair that is smooth, solid, and gleaming; good treatment should be given to your scalp.

Tips on How to Cut your Own Hair

How Does an Ultrasonic Toothbrush Work?

ultrasonic toothbrushThis is an electric toothbrush that makes use of ultrasound for effectiveness. The brush has got a minuscule head with specially designed bristles. The head can move in 2 possible motions. It may move in a vibration motion in the head; in a sideways motion or up-down motion. It may also move in a rotational oscillation movement; the head repeatedly rotates in half arcs.

This toothbrush works at 1.6 MHz frequency. That translates into 1,600,000 complete cycles (to and fro) in one second.

How to use an ultrasonic tooth brush

The way in which an ultrasonic toothbrush works depends on the motion type that one employs. There are 2 ways of using this toothbrush type: When the motion used is the rotational oscillation, the toothbrush moves from one tooth to the next. With this motion type, one does not have to move the brush in to and fro or up-down movements. When the motion is vibration, the toothbrush works just like an ordinary toothbrush. That means that one has to move it to and fro, up and down when brushing.

What is the effectiveness of an ultrasonic toothbrush?

Ultrasonic toothbrushes that use the rotational oscillation motion are said to be way better than the ordinary toothbrushes. A study carried out on people with gingival inflammation showed that the use of ultrasonic toothbrushes brought about a reduction in the inflammation. The inflammation reduced by 11 percent to 16 percent in one to three months of use. Gingival inflammation causes gums to bleed. However, there are some other factors that influenced the effectiveness of using the ultrasonic toothbrush. These include:

The amount of time spent when brushing. The longer one brushed, the greater the benefits.

Regular head replacement – Regularly replacing the toothbrush head enabled the brush to remain optimally efficient.

The brushing technique used – The patients that employed regular brushing techniques when using the ultrasonic toothbrush got better results. The gingival inflammation reduced greatly.

Ultrasonic toothbrushes get their prowess from the fact that they are able to break up dental plaque at a high degree. They do this by breaking down the chains that carcinogenic streptococcus mutant bacteria form.

These toothbrushes are also said to destroy these bacteria’s cell walls by loosening their means of attachment to the enamel.

Are the ultrasonic toothbrushes safe?

Ultrasound between 1.0 and 3.0 MHz has been employed in therapeutic procedures. These procedures include increasing the rate at which wounds heal, plaque removal, treating aphthous stomatitis, treating gingival inflammation and bleeding.

That is why in 1992, US Food and Drug Authority approved the use of a 1.6 MHz ultrasound in toothbrushes.

Then National Electrical Manufacturers Association introduced rules that ensured that ultrasonic toothbrushes were safe for use. The rules formulated were put in place to curtail the use of higher ultrasonic frequencies in these toothbrushes. That is because higher ultrasonic frequencies have the ability to raise the temperature of nearby dental tissue.

The limit is set at frequencies that do not have the ability of raising tissue temperature by 1 degree Celsius strictly.
