    Beauty Swaps You Can Make To Be A Superhero

    Superheroes. No matter where you go these days, there are films, comics and action figures that are all related to superheroes. They swoop in and save us all when there’s a baddie who is going to end the world – they always seem to want to end the world, don’t they? If you’ve ever wanted to be a superhero, have you thought about starting at home to save the world? You don’t necessarily need to have magical superpowers and you don’t need the ability to turn invisible or fly. What you can do, though, is change your life to save the world. Let me explain.

    beauty, makeup, superpowers, makeup routine

    Protecting the planet isn’t a gimmick. It’s not a fun thing to do for kicks in your spare time. Saving the world is about everyone coming together to realize that we are in an era of consumption. We want more, and we want it now, so factories work overtime to produce products. People work overtime to meet demands and more than ever, we are using up the resources our planet provides to us far faster than it can all be made. Companies are working on saving the oceans by using plastic to create clothing and shoes and it’s happening wherever you go. Your beauty faves? They’re saving the world, too, with companies that make natural deodorant becoming more popular, and you can help. You may not know it yet, but you can make some changes in your life to save the world and be a superhero for it. Here they are:

    Exfoliator

    You have your skincare routine down pat, but have you looked at the actual products that you are using? In recent years, the beauty industry has been dealt a heavy blow about the use of microbeads in their products; given that these are plastic. However, you can buy products now that have natural exfoliators in them, saving the planet one wash at a time.

    Cleansing

    Those wipes that you use after a night out? They’re great for those last vestiges of mascara, but they’re not so good for the planet. You can swap those disposable – and not flushable – wipes in favour of wipes that are reusable like these cleansing mitts.

    Toothbrushes

    An absolute essential twice a day – at the least – your toothbrush is a firm tenant in your bathroom. In the interest of saving the planet, you need to swap your plastic and you can actually buy bamboo toothbrushes, meaning that you can choose more ethical materials.

    Sunscreen

    If it gets warm again in the next few weeks, you’re going to need your sunscreen again. Unfortunately, many creams are made with ingredients that harm coral reefs. You can avoid that by buying sunscreen that is planet-friendly and organic.

    Your beauty regime doesn’t have to suffer and neither does the planet. The best thing that you can do is spend that little bit more cash and do something for the world around you. Don that cape and get ready; it’s time to save the day.

    The ultimate beard gift guide for sensitive skin

    beard grooming

    A beard is never just a beard, but rather a man’s pride and joy. So why not treat your bearded man with a gift that’s perfect for his sensitive skin? We give you the lowdown.

    Men are notoriously hard to buy for, and that’s a fact. Preferring to buy what they need, when they need it, purchasing gifts for the man in your life is less about finding that perfect present, and more about finding something they need that they don’t already have. From birthdays to anniversaries, Christmas to Easter, with so many occasions in a single year, it can leave us stumped when searching for that ultimate gift. Even more difficult? When your man has sensitive skin.

    But, fear not. If your other half has decided to let his facial fuzz run free, we teamed up with English Shaving Company to give you your need to know to keep his skin, and his beard, baby smooth. Read more

    Fabulous Beauty Fixes… Which Can Be Achieved Without Buying A Single Product

    Let’s face it; we all have something that we could do without when we stare at our reflections in the mirror. We can’t help comparing ourselves to the airbrushed, glowing images of perfection that populate billboards and commercials everywhere we look. The trouble with self-image is that it doesn’t adapt to time very well. Thus, when we look in the mirror we expect to see the pretty 19 year old we’d like to remember ourselves as rather than the older, wiser and equally beautiful but slightly more shelf worn version of you. It’s a perfectly natural phenomenon, and while we all want to look gorgeous whatever our ages; often our lifestyles and the harsh realities of the ultra-hectic 21st century aren’t always conducive to looking our best.

    5 Tips to Improving Acne Prone Skin

    Some people are lucky enough to never have an acne breakout, but there are many who have not been so lucky. While most people would complain about the acne on their face, it can actually happen on any part of your body.

    Sometimes the acne is bad enough that some people lose confidence in how they look. Some acne is very severe that they become too inflamed and results in serious scarring on the face or other parts of the body. Acne affects both men and women, albeit a little bit differently. Men tend to experience acne breakouts when they are younger, while women can experience them even until they turn 40.

    It’s Time You Paid Yourself the Beauty Attention you Deserve

    As we become adults, we usually begin identifying ourselves in many different ways. Some people are harsh on themselves and begin to ascribe widely different attitudes towards the way they look; therefore, this can have a net decrease in the confidence they have to supply to all activities in their life.

    This is a shame because, for the most part, people who are critical of themselves and their appearance are usually much more beautiful than they give themselves credit for. Find information on all about Indoor Tanning Lotions.

    Everyone knows what it’s like to have a friend who always proclaims that they’re fat, unattractive or not worth maintaining. This might be you. If it is, you should stop this. No matter who you are, you can look beautiful, and the only way to completely be sure of your beauty is to define it for yourself. Even supermodels that look like they’ve arrived straight from the Greek mountain of the gods to bless us; with their symmetrical, aesthetic beauty all have body image issues, and some even conform to harmful methods of weight loss to keep their trim figures.

    Tips to Get More Kissable Lips

    kissable lips

    Image source: Flickr

    Lips are one of a woman’s best features. Men love them, and women love having a pretty full lip to show off in their selfies. Even if you don’t think your lips are particularly impressive, there are lots of things you can do to make them look more luscious and imminently more kissable, so that no one will be able to resist you.

    Check out these tips to get more kissable lips:

    Drink More Water

    Lips need a lot of moisture if they’re going to look as plump and healthy as they should, which is why you should drink lots of water throughout the day to keep them hydrated. Being well-hydrated will also plump up and improve the appearance of your skin.

    Lots of Lip Smacker

    Unfortunately, the skin on our lips is quite thin, and it doesn’t benefit from any natural oils like other parts of the body, so it really is essential, if you want to have smooth, plump lips, that you apply moisture in the form of your favorite lip smacker on a regular basis. Lip balms that contain hydrating ingredients like coconut oil, shea butter and beeswax are best.

    Exfoliate Regularly

    Because the skin on the lips is quite thin, you shouldn’t over exfoliate, but you should make an effort to get rid of dead skin at least once or twice a week, or if your lips are particularly sensitive, whenever you notice a real need to do so. Dead skin will start to flake if it isn’t removed and no one ever wanted to kiss horribly flaky lips.

    Apply SPF

    Again, because the skin on the lips is thin and sensitive, it’s really important that you protect them by applying an SPF lip moisturizer daily. Even if it isn’t a sunny day, you still need to do this.

    Apply a Hydrating Lipstick

    If you want your lips to really look their best, steer clear of matte lipsticks which will dry out your lips and make them look dull and lifeless. Instead, find a great hydrating lipstick in your signature color and use that instead. If you must use a matte lipstick, at least a apply a layer or two of lip balm before you apply your lipstick.

    Plump it Up

    Lips that look naturally plump are so much more inviting than the lips, but you don’t have to have naturally plump lips to create the effect! Just apply a lip plumping gloss over your lipstick for a quick boost.

    Take Care of Your Teeth

    brush-teeth

    There’s little point making your lips look good if you don’t also take care of your teeth. After all, your lips look imminently more kissable when you smile, and if your teeth aren’t the best, that could ruin the effect.

    If your teeth are missing or in really bad shape, consider getting the best dental implants you can afford, to transform your smile, otherwise, just doing the basics, like brushing and flossing regularly and avoiding excess sugar should be enough.

    Do you have amazingly kissable lips? What are your top tips for creating lips that no man or woman can resist?

    How to Switch to Natural Beauty Products

    We, as a society, are becoming more health conscious every year. From the rise in green living to smoothies and juicing, we know we have to do more to live longer and enjoy a healthy lifestyle. One of the latest trends in health is switching to natural beauty products. We’re more aware than ever of the chemicals that are put in our products, and we don’t want them touching our skin anymore. Here are a few tips when you’re ready to make the transition to natural beauty products.

    Save Your Bank Balance

    Even though you’re aware that your current beauty products aren’t that good for you, hold on to them for a while. Going natural can be expensive and it’s not something you want to do all at once. As your products begin to run out, replace them when necessary and transition slowly. This doesn’t just save you from spending a ridiculous amount of money, it also gives you the time to do some research into the type of products you’re interested in and where you can get them from.

    Use Less

    The whole point of going natural is to give your skin a chance to breathe. Before you make the switch to natural products, you may want to start using less on your skin. For instance, save eye shadow, eyeliners and lip liners for special occasions. As you start to cut down on some of the products you use, you may start to realize how much you were actually relying on. The bigger the variety of beauty products, the more chemicals your body has had to deal with.

    Get Samples

    Switching to natural beauty products is a whole new ball game. You may find that you purchase a foundation in your usual tone but it’s the wrong colour for your skin or it doesn’t give you the coverage you want. Natural beauty products are becoming more and more popular, which means you’ll have a bigger choice. Get some samples before you decide on buying anything. For example, sampling natural products for hair will give you a chance to find out if you get the results you’re looking for.

    Look at Ingredients

    Before you start diving into the world of natural beauty products, you need to know which ingredients are good and which are bad. Unfortunately, there will undoubtedly be companies that advertise their products as natural but they’ll still contain ingredients that could do you harm. Here are some natural ingredients you can rely upon for the health of your skin.

    Detox

    As you start to use natural products instead of your usual ones, you may start to feel slightly unwell. You may experience headaches or you may have severe acne. This is because your body has been used to getting a daily dose of the ingredients in your unnatural products. As you progress with your natural beauty regime, you’ll notice these symptoms disappear. Your body will need to detox, just as it does when you quit smoking or cut out caffeine.

    Selfie Beauty Tips

    fashion-person-woman-apple.jpg

     

    The selfie has completely taken over the world. There are probably few people on the planet, and certainly in the West, who don’t know what a selfie is and most of them will have taken at least one.

    Let’s face it, we all like to show off our style by uploading a selfie or two to our social media accounts. I mean, it’s so gratifying when someone likes your picture or compliments you on your look that it can be quite addictive for some. Many selfie kings and queens even spend hours of time and lots of cash ensuring that they’re picture perfect in every selfie they take. Although I wouldn’t necessarily suggest going that far, there are lots of things that you can do to ensure that you look great in each and every selfie you take. Check them out…

    Look After Your Teeth

    If we’re not pouting, then we’re smiling in our selfies, which is why taking good care of our teeth has to be a priority if we want to look great in every snap we take. Luckily, this is pretty easy, and as long as you cover the basics like brushing and flossing twice daily, you should be good to go. Of course, if you aren’t happy with your teeth, teeth whitening and straightening are additional options you might want to explore.

    Celebrity Skin

    You aren’t exactly going to look ah-mazing in your selfies if your skin is dull and flaky, which is why you’ll want to take extra care of your skin. As a minimum, you should be buffing your face with a good exfoliator at least twice a week (or as directed) and cleansing, toning, and moisturizing daily. Throw in a weekly face mask, and you’ll have beautiful, glowing skin 24/7 – no more getting caught out by the camera for you. NDA 100% Pure Essential Oil will hydrate the dullness and driest skin stay flawless as you can.

    red lips

    Apply a Lip Plumper

    If selfies are all about the perfect pout for you, there’s no need to go for lip injections, which have turned many a pretty smile into an ugly trout pout. All you need to do is ensure you apply a good lip plumper before you point that camera at your face.

    Do Your Eye Makeup First

    Makeup is essential if you want to create a flawless selfie, but you need to apply that makeup flawlessly for it to pay off with a killer photo, and that’s why you should always apply your eye makeup before your foundation. By doing this, you’ll avoid making a mess of your foundation, and you’ll look flawlessly fresh.

    Line Inner Rim of Eyes

    Adding a liner to the inner rip of your upper eyelid is a great way to make your eyelashes look thicker and define your eyes so that they really pop when you take a picture.

    Lashings of Mascara

    When it comes to selfies and the eyes, more mascara is more. If you use only a small amount of mascara, it won’t exactly show up well on camera, and your eyes won’t look quite so open in the shot. So, add two, three or even four layers of mascara before you take that selfie, or if you like, apply false lashes to give you more volume and make your eyes really stand out on camera.

    (Maybe) Go Full Coverage

    In selfies, it really matters that your skin looks flawless and the best way to achieve this is with a full coverage foundation that matches your natural skin tone as closely as possible. If, however, you want to look natural and you have a freckly complexion, going for a sheer foundation that also offers coverage, like the Bobbi Brown Luminous Moisturizing Treatment Foundation, will ensure that you still look like your authentic self. When you’re applying foundation, don’t forget to cover your ears, so that they match your face and look just as flawless. It can look weird when your ears are a completely different shade to the rest of you!

    Contour

    Contouring is in vogue right now, but it isn’t just a fad, it really does make your face look better in photos, and actually in real. Life too. The key to good contouring is to use a good blush brush to apply a matte blush or bronzer to those areas of the face that are most angular, like the jaw and forehead.

    Eye brows, Instagram brows

    Embolden Your Brows

    If you want to look younger and prettier in your selfies, you don’t need to book a face-lift or anything like that; you just need to work on your eyebrows. Eyebrows that are fuller and bolder will structure your face for a more youthful, attractive look. This is something you can easily do with a good brow pencil or mascara if your brows are a bit thin naturally.

    Moisturize The Lips

    Again, the mouth area is very important in selfies, which is why you need to pay attention not only to your teeth but also to your lips. If you want your lips to look fuller and younger, make sure you use a high-quality lip balm to moisturize them daily and apply a little gloss before you take a picture, so that they look moist, young and very luscious.

    Use a Boar Hair Brush

    There’s nothing worse than taking what would otherwise be the perfect selfie only to find that your hair looks frizzy on camera. You can minimize the chances of this happening by lightly brushing your hair with a boar hair brush, which minimizes frizz, before taking your picture. It’ll make your hair look shinier and healthier on camera too.

    Bonus: When to Take a Selfie

    Okay, so this isn’t a beauty tip. But taking the perfect selfie is about more than your makeup and beauty regime. You might be interested to know that, if you’re outdoors, it’s best to take your picture at dawn or dusk, avoiding midday completely if you can. This is because the light is better at these times than it is between the hours of noon and 4 pm when the light is right above you and shadows will be cast on your face, making you look less than the perfect beauty you are.
