- It may be trite but relaxation is the best way to lower stress. No matter what is going on in your life, it is imperative to take time for yourself. If you don't give your body and mind some intermittent downtime you are going to burn out; no one person can operate on high levels of stress indefinitely.
Women wear make-up for various reasons. In the first instance,
women use make-up to beautify their face - to improve their best
qualities and to improve their weak points. Women, since time,
have always had problems with aging - growing old and looking
old. However, not all types of make-up is right for you. Women
who have just learned how to use make-up usually get overexcited
and head out the door to buy the latest products in order to
sport the latest trends in make-up, without taking into account
their age and complexion, which they will think are the best .
As a means to fight against the cruel effects of time in terms
of their beauty is concerned, women use different techniques,
including various make-up ideas.
It is important to use make-up that is appropriate to your age.
The make-up idea is great advice, so you can avoid looking fake
or appearing too over made-up. While the make-up can help you
appear young and fresh, you may also appear worn out if it is
not applied correctly. There are techniques that will help you
decide whether to buy a lipstick with a bright shade to go with
the darker hue.
If you are young, you do not have to wear too much make-up,
because time is on your side: your youth is your greatest asset.
Play it and emphasize that, instead of having it hidden under
layers of make-up. In addition, this is a time in your life when
acne breakouts typically occurs. In order to avoid problems with
acne, wear make-up only if necessary, for example, during a big
school happening or on a date. Go for absolute basic foundation,
which is water-based and water-oil-free, eyeshadow in natural
colors, no or very little mascara, clear gel blush if you have
dry skin and powder blush if you have oily skin and lightly
tinted lip gloss.
If you're twenty-something, your make-up should reflect the
full bloom of womanhood. The idea is to choose colors that match
the colour of your eyes, skin tone, and disposition, and to keep
everything light and easy. Use a basic light foundation, light
powder blush, and lightly tinted lipstick. During the evening
affairs, you can switch to the sophisticated look by choosing
If you are a thirty-something, signs of ageing may have started
to appear on your face, including the crows feet and fine lines.
This is the time when the need to tone down your make-pallets.
Use more Foundation, but nonetheless decide to use light blush
and eyeshadow. Frosted make-up products are intended for women
in this age category, but actually the frosted make-up only
increases your wrinkles, so try not to use them.
If you are a forty-something, signs of aging are more obvious.
In order to avoid further damage to the skin, wear make-up,
which offers protection and is made of fine ingredients. Use
oil-based foundation, if you have dry skin or powder foundation
if you have oily skin, and lay the foundation lightly on your
wrinkles. For the darks spots and dark circles under your eyes,
use concealer, preferably in the form of cream to give you color
and warmth, use light blush on your cheeks. When you enter
fifty, do not use blue and red shades, as well as frosty, silver
or shiny colors.
With these make-up ideas, you will look beautiful at any age.
