Basic Beauty Tips You May Not Know But Should | Fashion Boss



Here are some simple beauty tips and tricks that you might not already know but should! From rosy cheeks to fuller lips. Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚


Give Curls Bounce

Never brush curls out with a brush. Instead, loosen them with your fingers. This will give curls added lift without flattening them down.


Give Hair Lift

Before you start blow drying your hair, add a volumizing spray to your roots. This will give your locks some added lift.

Stop Your Hair Colour From Fading

If you’ve just had your hair dyed, the last thing you want is for the colour to fade. One surefire way to prevent such a mishap from happening? Use a deep-conditioning treatment once a month. This will help lock in colour and has the added benefit of staving off dry and damaged locks.

Create Fuller Lips

If you’re sick of having thin, pursed puckers, extend your lip line using a neutral-toned lip liner. Then apply lipstick over top. Be careful though — don’t extend your lip line too much.


You Can Use Exfoliator Daily

Exfoliation is an important and easy way to buff away the dead skin cells that cover up your skin’s natural glow. Use a light exfoliator, like the Daily Microfoliant from Dermalogica, to freshen your face daily.

Avoid Overly Rosy Cheeks

Giving yourself a natural glow avec blush is an in look for spring. But you’ll want to avoid brushing on too much (lest you look like a clown). So always start your blush line two finger widths away from your nose and only apply it on the apples of your cheeks. This will ensure you create a natural glow without going overboard.

If You Have Greasy Hair…

Avoid applying conditioner directly to your hair’s roots — just apply the heavy moisturizing cream to your locks’ ends.

Clean Your Makeup Tools

Whether you use a Q-tip or a powder brush, make sure to clean your beauty tools. After even a couple uses, they become breeding grounds for bacteria, which can cause breakouts, eczema and many other skin conditions.


Remove Nail Polish Without Remover

If you run out of nail polish remover, you can remove cracked or chipped nail polish by applying a clear top coat to the nail and removing it promptly with a cotton ball.

Change It Up

Our skin craves different things depending on the time of year. So change up your beauty routine based on the seasons. In the winter, add more moisturizing creams to your daily beauty list. In summer, ensure you’re using lots of SPF.

Apply Bronzer Evenly

Before applying bronzer or self-tanning lotion, mix a drop or two of the solution with moisture cream. Blend using your finger or a Q-tip then apply to skin as you would regular moisturizer. This will ensure the cream blends in — and covers skin — evenly.

Hide Split Ends

To make split ends less noticeable, apply a heavy hair repair cream to lock in moisture before and after using a flat iron or a blow-dryer.

Soften Skin

Immediately after stepping out of a shower, pool or lake/ocean, apply some sort of cream to skin. Water washes away the skin’s natural oils and applying moisture cream will prevent skin chapping.
