Things Every Girl Should Try!!

I saw a post in Pinterest listing 101 things every girl should know and I though I would share some of the interesting ones that every girl should try from that list!

  • Use excess eye cream on cuticles.
  • For smudge-proof eye makeup, take blotting tissue to remove any oil or any excess makeup from the eye area.
  • Breakout before a big event? “Take oral cortisone a few days before the event to clear your skin”- Ava Shamban, dermatologist and author of Heal Your Skin.
  • Wear white eyeliner to make eyes appear less red.
  • For the perfect cat-eye, “select a thin liner brush that is tapered to the point”- Pamela Taylor, makeup artist
  • To make your cheek bones appear higher, use bronzer under the cheekbone and highlighter on the actual cheekbone.
  • For fuller lips, extend the lip line using a flesh tone lip liner. Be careful not to go overboard!
  • To fake clear skin when you notice a pimple, “Apply tea tree oil as soon as you spot it”- Stephanie Flor, makeup artist.
  • When choosing a red lipstick, you just want to remember to get one that looks good with your undertone. If you have a warm undertone, then go for warmer reds, and if you have a cool undertone, then go cooler.
  • When self-tanning, use a tanner with a guide color. “It will give you instant color before the effect and it will show you exactly where you put the color and where you may have missed”- Sinead Norenius, founder of Beautisol
  • The antihistamines in allergy medicine dry out the skin, so skip heavy foundation during allergy season. Instead, use a tinted moisturizer.
  •  Use an exfoliater to get rid of dead skin but limit yourself to 2-3 times a week so you don’t dry out your skin.
  • If you have greasy hair, avoid directly conditioning roots and condition from your ear down to ends.
  • Clean out your makeup bag at least once a year to get rid of old products that may be expired or you no longer use.
  • If you don’t have nail polish remover, apply clear nail polish over and then wipe off. It will remove old polish.
  • To add volume to clean or unwashed hair, use a dry shampoo spray.
  • To get curls when you have straight hair, use the following, “a volumizer or volume thickening agent, a curl enhancing product, light holding finishing spray”- Vicktor Stevenson, Hair Stylist
  • ”The right red [lipstick] will light up your hair, eyes and skin immediately, the wrong one will not.”-Poppy King, Lipstick Queen
  • Use a shimmer eye shadow to compliment a bold matte lip.
  • To revive curls mid-day, “Take a very small amount of pomade and put it in the palms of your hands. Rub them together. Next gently smooth the pomade over your curls and scrunch just a little bit”-Eugene Davis, celebrity hair stylist
  • “Use your concealer as a base on your eyelids”-Melissa Silver, Maybelline makeup artist
  •  If you’re not a fan of liquid liner, get the look of liquid eye liner by using a gel instead.
  • Exfoliate before applying self-tanner to get rid of dead skin. Tanning products tend to cling to drier areas.
  • The healthier you are, the healthier your hair! Take a daily multi-vitamin with Biotin to help hair grow.
  • To mask split ends, use an iron to straighten ends and then apply a hair repair cream.
  • To fix brassy hair color, use a color-depositing shampoo with purple tones. For unwanted redness, use a color-depositor with a green tone.
  • To cover up roots in a hurry, use a dry shampoo spray for your hair color. If you don’t keep this product around, use eye shadow (in a shade closest to your hair color) for a quick fix.
  • When using a cream product, lock it in by using a translucent powder over it26. Try out the funky hair color trends without dying your hair. Instead, dust bright blush in your ponytail for the same effect. (Refinery29)
  • To create a lived-in look for your hair, use thickening or sea-salt mist before you blow-dry. Follow by running a volumizing or texture cream through hair.
  • When using an eyeshadow primer, only place the primer where you’ll be adding color.
  • Use a facial exfoliater bi-weekly to get dead skin of dead skin. Makeup will look better on a clean, smooth canvas.
  • After using a hair conditioning mask, follow with “a cold water rinse to close the hair cuticles”- Ursala Stephensen, Motions celebrity stylist
  • To get your braid to last all day, try styling hair that’s “dirty with product”. This will make the style stick longer.
  • Use a clarifying shampoo once a week to get rid of any product build-up that may have occurred during the week.
  • If you have chipped nail-polish, add crackle or glitter on top to disguise the look of chipping.
  • Hydrate your under-eye area with an eye cream to prevent puffiness and bags.
  • If you have light hair,”put a lotion over the eyebrows and hair-line” when self-tanning the face. Also remember to “apply it in circular motions and blend down to the neck”- Sinead Norenius, founder of Beautisol
  • “The best time to apply creams is after the shower, as the skin has been de-oiled.”- Dr. Stephen P. Bracci
