Have you ever wondered how you can I make yourself look, and feel, great without having to change your entire daily routine and spend a fortune on beauty products?
While we know it sometimes takes time and energy to feel at your best, the old saying “a little bit goes a long way” remains true. Despite what your friends tell you about spending huge amounts of money and time on their self-care, with a few key tricks, looking and feeling great can be dead simple. Because sometimes it’s the small things that make the biggest contribution to beauty, inside and out.
Layer your scents
Smelling great is not only about having the most expensive fine fragrance collection. It is actually an investment that starts with your bath time routine. Your scent doesn’t only come in a spray bottle. Instead, your body lotion, shower gel, soap and even fabric perfume all contribute to building a confidence-boosting body fragrance. Build the layers and you’ll soon notice the difference!
Blot your lipstick
Everyone loves luscious lips – so if you want your pout to stand out there are a few really simple adjustments you can make that may surprise you. By lightly applying concealer followed by translucent powder, then your liner and lipstick you will really make the colour pop. Also, after you have applied the lipstick, blot your lips gently with a single piece of tissue paper. This will help to set the lipstick and protect the pigment. You can also build up the colour and ensure that it lasts longer by applying multiple layers in succession.
The sweet spot
We all know the saying “Location, location, location” - although probably not within this context. While it may seem strange its actually pretty appropriate because on which body part you spritz your fragrance has a real effect on how you will smell. Fragrance typically rises from the bottom up so choosing to spray your carefully selected scent on warmer body areas such as your wrists will make a big difference. Also consider areas such as the small of your back, behind your knees, and the back of your neck and ankles to get maximum value from your fragrance. Try these few tweaks to your daily routine today, and you will soon notice big results. Layering is king!
