Fashion isn’t always about the clothes you wear, but can also be about the way you present yourself to the world. While it can be a good idea to consider your face shape and even skin tone when doing so, you also will want to factor in colours and styles that make you feel genuinely happy. After all, when you don’t feel like you look your best, it will become clear to others that you lack confidence, even when using high-end items.
Having a good skincare routine and exfoliating regularly will keep your skin in the best condition possible. As well as this, it can help to prevent any problems from occurring, such as having a stye under your eyelid or blocked pores which can lead to acne. Alongside this, good hygiene can also help you to retain a youthful glow, and even prevent the onset of early wrinkles. When you want to look your best for an event, or even just for everyday life, a style or pimples can really impact your appearance, as well as your confidence.
Not only could these potential issues appear unsightly, but you may feel itchy, sore, and also not be able to wear makeup as this could aggravate the already inflamed areas. Having good hygiene all the time, not just when you want to shine, can greatly reduce the likelihood of these infections occurring.
The makeup you choose, and even the ways in which you wear it, can also affect your overall appearance. Again, it is important that you feel confident in the products you use, but also that they suit your face. When choosing products, it can be important to keep your skin tone in mind, particularly with foundation. Failure to do so can leave your skin tone looking too much of a contrast to your natural hue, or even blotchy.
If you aren’t used to wearing makeup, it’s important to realise that the ability to apply it flawlessly will take some time to learn, so don’t be disappointed if it doesn’t look perfect on your first try. Also, one of the most important rules of makeup is that you always take it off at the end of the day, as this can help prevent breakouts.
If you’re looking for a way to add a little extra length and drama to your eyelashes, DIY lash extensions may be the answer for you. Here’s how to make them yourself:
- Start by gathering all of the supplies you’ll need: lash adhesive, lash strips, scissors, and a mirror.
- Apply adhesive to the base of one lash strip and place it on top of the other strip. Then pull them both up until they meet in the middle (you may need to use a bit of pressure to secure them). Use scissors to cut off the excess strip.
- Repeat these steps until you have as many lashes as you want.
DIY eyelash extensions at home are a great way to get a stunning glamorous look without spending too much time, money, and effort. In as little as 10 minutes you can achieve an incredible look that would usually take hours in a salon. Furthermore, they are reusable so they do not need to be replaced with each wear, making them a more sustainable option too. Once you do them once, it will become your go-to beauty ritual for all special occasions.
There are a number of accessories that can keep you looking great, no matter the occasion. Headbands can keep your hair and bangs off of your face, which can be particularly useful on blustery days. When the sun is out, you might want to invest in some UV sunglasses that suit your face shape. Not only will these keep you looking chic, but they can also help to protect your eyes from the damage that the sun’s UV rays can cause, alongside sunblock for your skin.
Keeping your face fashionable is about a mix between your hygiene and skin care, alongside the products that can be used to highlight your features. No matter what you decide regarding accessories or makeup, it is important that you put your overall care first, to ensure your skin remains clear and you look as healthy as possible.
