Happy May, ladies! We’re focusing on faces today. Have a look at these cosmetics tips to help you keep from making these mistakes…

Blush Boo-boos

The best blush application technique for YOU, my dear, depends on the shape and fullness of your face. If you have prominent cheekbones, a little rosy glow on the apples of your cheeks will do. (Smile, and apply a soft color lightly on the fullest part of your cheeks in small circles. A shimmer is great for spring and summer!) If your face is fuller, you can get away with a subtle shadowing tone under your cheekbones. The key word here is subtle. Suck your cheeks in as if you’re making “fishy lips” (that’s a technical term) and apply color in the hollows under your cheekbones...

More weird beauty tips and tricks!

Today’s wacky – and sometimes humorous – beauty tricks. Some of these are just too weird not to work. As always, use your own discretion and at your own risk. :)

beer

Beer isn’t just for breakfast anymore

Beer can clean up your locks and make them healthy and shiny. I know you’ve heard about it… but have you TRIED it? Before you wash your hair, pour some FLAT beer over it. Let it sit for 10 minutes or so and shampoo/condition as usual. If you have dry hair/scalp (common in the winter when the humidity is low), rinse out the beer and work some olive oil into your hair and scalp, then shampoo thoroughly and condition.

Raising Eyebrows… With Your Eyebrows

Eyebrows are those lovely little things that are supposed to frame and draw attention to our eyes. But sometimes we forget to reign those suckers in and before we know it, they become little attention whores. Don’t let it happen to you.

EYEBROW SHAPE

Your eyebrows are supposed to follow the line of your browbone. If you hold a pencil straight up alongside your nose, your eyebrows should STOP at the inner corner of your eye. If you then angle that pencil so that it covers your pupil, your eyebrows should PEAK at the point where the pencil crosses your brow...

Why his face looks better than yours

Have you ever noticed that his skin looks younger than yours? Here’s why.

Thick skin

First of all, men’s skin is thicker than women’s. That’s why, as we age, we get all crepey and puckery while they get “character lines”. I’m laughing now at I write this, and I probably shouldn’t, since I’m only making those crow’s feet worse. :)

What can we do about it?

Our thin skin is more sensitive to UVA rays… so make sure you’re wearing a daily moisturizer AND foundation with at least an SPF 15.

Oil

Second, men have smaller sebaceous glands, but secrete more oil. Their oil production doesn’t taper off to match ours until about age 50.

What can we do about it?

Moisturize inside and out. Moisturize day and night on the outside, and drink plenty of water to moisturize from the inside!

Aging

As women...

Look carefully at how he highlights a line down the center of her nose, fans it out up between her brows, then uses a darker shade on the sides of her nose and under her cheekbones. This makeup contouring trick is a classic for making your nose look thinner and your cheekbones stand out.

You don’t have to have a professional makeup artist to get this look. Kim shows us how to do it ourselves.
