Beauty Tips

I'm sure most of you are aware, and to raise some awareness if you aren't, on a Sunday, the beauty blogging world takes to Twitter with the hastag #bbloggers. Through this we are able to meet new blogs, find new friends, and most importantly discuss and share topics around this area. This weeks topic was Beauty Tips, at the time, my mind froze, just like when you are asked to tell people an 'interesting fact' and for the life of you, you cannot think of one, then after, loads come flooding to you. So, here are some of the tips I've picked up from blogging, and tips I read on Sunday.


Face:
- Take you're make up off at night! I know it sounds very, 'I've heard it all before' but honestly, I've noticed such a difference in my skin since I started to ensure all make-up traces were taken care of.

- Drink enough water. I am one to not follow this, but honestly I can see the good it does when I do. Everything feels better 'cause of it.

- Give your face a break whenever you can. It likes a relaxing time off just as much as you do.

- Oily or dry skin, don't be afraid to moisturize, just make sure it works for you.


Hair
- PROTECT PROTECT PROTECT. Heat defense spray should be your best friend. Find one that works and utilize it.

- Try and let it dry naturally as much as possible.

- Try not to wash it too often either. I used to wash mine daily, but with a little dry shampoo, and working around days were I don't need to go out, I can now go for at least two days.

- I sleep with my hair in a top knot on my head, and it gives a nice volume and curl to it the next day, and keeps dirty hair off of my face at night.

- Blow dry your hair upside down for some extra volume.


Make-Up:
- So many people bought this up, but clean your make-up brushes, the bacteria build up... is all I need to say really isn't it?

- Always keep cotton wool pads near to clean up any mistakes.

- A clean mascara wand, from an old mascara can be good for grooming eye brows.

- Less is more, you can always add but you can never take away.


Nails:
- Use a base coat. I've noticed with some colours, even with a base coat, it still stains.

- Give them a break every now and then. Too much colour is bad for them!

- A good cuticle butter is a godsend.

So these are just a few tips I've picked up, but my main tip I can think to give you is, don't be afraid to try something new. What works for others may not work for you! Give things I a try, what's the worst that could happen?

What's your best make-up tip?

  14. I recently gave my poor little toe nails a break after having had polish on them for about 2 years straight. They have grown so much faster and stronger, even after two weeks! Crazy.
