Beauty You

Enhance an already lovely canvas with these day spa beauty tips and tricks

Skin

Give your skin a healthy glow by brushing it gently with a soft brush, loofah or dry face washer. This stimulates the lymphatic system and gets rid of dead skin cells. It also increases circulation and improves the overall look of your skin. A true day spa beauty treatment!

Complexion

Apply foundation with a damp sea sponge. Dab it on, do not drag it across or down.

If you have trouble finding a shade of foundation to suit your skin type try buying a light shade and a dark shade. You can then mix together just the right tone.

Eyes

Enlarge eyes by using a pale shade of eye shadow just below your eyebrow.

Use a small amount of white or pale eyeliner on the inner rim of your lower lashes. This really helps bring out the whites of your eyes.

Whiten your teeth – believe it or not white teeth also highlight the whites of your eyes.

Fake it – For special occasions enhance beautiful eyes with false eyelashes, you will be amazed at the results. This does take some practice but is well worth the effort. My preference is for individual lashes. In addition to the instructions on the box I would add that a great way to position them is with a toothpick and to curl your real lashes before applying the false ones.

Lips

Apply foundation over your lips and then line with lip liner. Fill in the whole lip area with lip liner. Apply lipstick over the top. For a fuller pout apply lip gloss to the centre of your bottom lip.

Hair

Hair shines when the cuticles of the hair are smoothed down. Try combing through your conditioner while you are in the shower and rinse with cold water. Apply a leave in conditioner after you have towel dried your hair. Always blow dry your hair pointing the nozzle downwards so that the cuticles stay smooth.
