If you're fair, go for a small amount of blush around a pinkish color for the cheeks. But, the fist thing you MUST know is that if you put on eye shadow don't ever put on lipstick or gloss at the same time. So for the eyes it really depends on your eye color, for blue eyes you shouldn't go for a blue eyeshadow go for earth-tones. If you want to jump out of earth tones light pink always looks good, Brown eyes can get away with wearing almost any color of eyeshadow. But if you really want to make them pop out go for aether green, pink or blue eyeshadow. In order to get green eyes to pop, you should try wearing various purple shades. If you want your eyes to stand out but look more natural, you may want to try warmer mocha brown shades or warm colors with slight orange undertones for green eyes.Keep in mind that you should have fun with your eyeshadow and it shouldn't be a bothersome process. A general rule of thumb with eyeshadow is to first compliment your eye color and then it shouldn't contrast your clothing. In other words, don't wear a purple based eyeshadow on your blue eyes while you are wearing a coral toned shirt. And for lipstick and gloss: gloss always looks better for people that have a fair skin tone a light pink would look Perfect!
If you're light, you should wear bronze or lavender purple eyeshadow. Apply it up to your crease. For the blush, you should choose a medium rose. Because your probably slightly dark-haired, you should choose black mascara. For finish put on a natural medium pink or coral/orangey.
If you have medium skin, choose chocolate brown or olive green. (make sure the olive is a bit shimmery, so it doesn't drag your eyes down) the blush should be a natural dark coral. You should definitely choose either black or blue mascara. Blue really brings out the eye colour. This only works for medium skin: Put on a matte bronzer on the bridge of your nose, forehead and chin. Make sure it looks very natural, and that you barely notice it. Brown stains on your face - not a good look. Choose a matte, light red lipstick.
If you have dark skin, choose a dark plum or black-brown matte eyeshadow. The blush should be dark plum or bronze. It really makes the cheekbones pop. The mascara should be a very black one. And the lipstick should be a creamy wine or plum tone
Fall is upon us and the air is dry. There is nothing worse than dry flaky skin, no matter what part of the body. Ladies please do not allow your self to be in violation for having bad winter skin! To help you out I have listed a few reminders / tips to help battle the cold air.
Tip #1 Moisturize and hydrate your skin like crazy.
Try sleeping with a humidifier, fill it with water and plug it in before bed. Adding moisture to the air while you sleep will help skin to look more dewy in the morning.
If all of a sudden your moisturizer — which normally works great — isn’t keeping your skin supple and hydrated, try applying a serum underneath for a little glow boost.
Experiment with body butters or oil. The non-facial skin often gets neglected, when it should be cared for just as much as your face.
Tip # 2 Exfoliate and mask on a weekly basis.
Try a granulated scrub or light peel to remove the dead skin cells from your face and body. Follow up with a mask. If your typical go-to is an oil-absorbing mask, you might want to put that away for the next few months and switch to a gel- or cream-based hydrating mask.
Tip # 3 Get A Facial.
This is the perfect jump-starter to better skin, especially if you haven't had one in a while. A good thorough facial rapidly sheds the dead skin from your face and helps get your glow going once again. Don’t have time (or money) for a professional facial? Try an at-home facial!
Tip # 4 Get the blood flowing to the face.
Sometimes, some good, old-fashioned exercise can make all the difference in getting your skin to a better place. In this case, yoga is ideal as the goal here is to detox, meditate and get circulation and blood flow to the face. The rosy flush that results from an hour of yoga usually ushers in a glow right behind it.
Bonus Tip: Sugar and EVOO is a great DIY scrub to exfoliate your dry skin.
Natural hair is naturally dry. It is easy for straight hair to receive the natural oils produced from the scalp as it easily travels down the hair shaft. It’s more difficult for the natural oils to travel down the naturally curly, coily hair shaft. It is especially difficult to reach the ends of the hair which is the oldest part of our strands. With the cooler months approaching you might find your hair needs more moisture than in the warmer months.
I will share two simple tips to keep your natural hair moisturized. Moisturized hair is happy healthy hair.
Tip # 1
Moisturize daily with a water based moisturizer. The BEST water based moisturizer is WATER. (How simple is that?) I keep a spray bottle with plain old fashion water. I lightly mist my natural hair every day with water. I mist it in the morning in the warmer months and at night in the colder months.
After you moisturize your hair you want to seal your hair. Let me quickly explain term "seal" for the newly natural or for anyone who might not know what that term means. If you are adding moisture to your hair daily you will want to seal that moisture into your hair strands. Without a sealant the moisture you just added will naturally escape the hair shaft before it has a chance to nourish the hair. You can seal the shaft with products that are cream & butter based such as shea butter or oil based such as almond oil or castor oil.
If you have thicker hair, try a butter or cream to seal your moisture. On the other hand if you have thin soft hair, try oils. You may find butter to be too heavy for your hair.
