The secret to effortless yet gorgeous beachy hair
Soft, beachy waves are an effortlessly sexy look but still look put together and well groomed. Usually beachy waves are achieved using a salt spray which gives hair a little curl and dryness, mimicking a day at the beach. But be careful because salt sprays can leave the hair stiff and dried out. To combat this, simply use a hair serum beforehand which deeply moisturises the hair and protects it from damage. The best part is it doesn’t interfere with any product or styling process but enhances it, which is one of those sought after need to know beauty tips.
Flaky, dry lips
It’s essential that we care for our lips like we would any other body part, especially if you want soft and supple lips. And moisturised lips are the best way to achieve rich lip colour that’s long lasting. Before bed, try gently massaging your lips with a wet towel to remove dead skin and pink up your lips. Then apply a good lip balm (You can’t go wrong with coconut oil or vaseline!).
A few lipstick tricks
Long-lasting lip colour require a few tricks for proper application. When applying your lipstick make sure you smile to help reach every part of your lips, including corners. Wait a minute or two after the first coat, blot with a tissue, and then lightly dust with translucent powder before applying the second layer. You can also apply light concealer around your lips to prevent bleeding.
Don’t go to sleep with your make up on
This is one we can all be guilty of! Often times you’re so tired from the day’s activities that you can easily forget to take off your makeup before bed or simply not have the energy. This isn’t a good habit for healthy, radiant skin because leaving on makeup overnight can cause unsightly breakouts, irritation and blocked pores. An easy solution would be to leave makeup removing wipes nearby, like on your bathroom sink or nightstand. Then there are no excuses.
Longer lasting manicure
There is nothing more annoying than when you have perfectly painted nails and they chip within just a couple days. The best way to increase the life of your manicure perfect nails is to first apply a base coat. Then apply an even and thin layer of colour, wait for it to set in a bit, and then apply another coat. For the second coat, make sure to sweep the polish lightly across the tips of your nails to seal in the polish. Finish with a quick dry top coat. This method has my polish lasting a week.
