Red Lipstick – Is It Right for You?

Believe it or not, choosing a red lipstick shade involves more than selecting the one you like the most. If you’re looking to learn new beauty tips, then beginning with your lipstick is an excellent place to start. After all, red lipstick can make or break your look. Here is how to achieve that killer look with a devilish red shade.

Know Your Skin Type

Everybody has a different skin type and knowing yours can make all the difference to how you dress, accessorise, and apply your makeup. To determine the skin type you have, you can look at the inside of your wrist. If your veins are more of a green colour than blue, your skin type is ‘warm’. However, if they are more blue than green, you have ‘cool’ skin. And, if they’re an eclectic mix of both green and blue, you have a sought-after ‘neutral’ skin. Believe it or not, being aware of your skin type can make all the difference to the shade of red lipstick that will suit you.

What Works with Warm Skin?

If you have established, through reading various beauty tips, that you have warm skin, the options are endless for the red tones of lipstick you’ll suit. Because your skin is warm, you’re going to want to opt for warm red colours as well. Lipstick tones considered warm are those with words like orange, coral, and sunset in the name. However, if you haven’t seen your dentist for teeth whitening in a while, avoid those more orange-like shades as they can accentuate discolouration in teeth.

Benefits of Water

Benefits of Water for Your Skin

Posted on Posted in Beauty

You can benefit from soft, supple, and healthy skin by using organic skin care products on a frequent basis. However, you can also do your skin all kinds of favours by making sure it’s as hydrated as possible. But, why is water so good for your skin? What can it do? Find out below.

Skin Conditions

Skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema occur for many reasons, including having a poor diet or using low-quality skin care products. If you keep up your water intake, you may find that it can help to alleviate the irritation. What’s more, the more water you drink, the abler your body is to flush out toxins. This, too, can reduce the irritation and effects of skin conditions and offer a healthy glow.

Stress-Related Skin Damage

When you don’t use organic skin care products, or you find yourself in a stressful situation where you don’t take care of your skin, you may notice it becomes become dry, flaky, itchy, or even oily with a threat of acne just around the corner. Stress is exceptionally harmful to your skin, but water in the form of a cold bath or shower can be of assistance.

Stay under the cold water for up to three minutes then get out. It rejuvenates your skin, improves your circulation, and leaves you feeling revitalised. You can then towel dry yourself and apply an organic skin care product of your choice.

Anti-Ageing

If you use organic skin care products as an anti-ageing serum, then you will no doubt already be reaping the rewards of reduced fine lines and wrinkles. However, if you want to take it one step further, you only need to remember to drink water. It’s that straightforward.

No-Fuss Hair Styles That Work

Posted on Posted in Beauty

We’ve all experienced it – the shock and horror after sleeping through your alarm, only to discover you’ve got far less time than you require to get ready for work. Then, lo and behold, your hair’s a mess, and you don’t have time to straighten it, use product, or even put much effort into it at all. If your line of work requires you to be presentable but there’s just not enough time, why not consider a no-fuss hairstyle that works?

While it takes just a few minutes, you’re sure to find any of these hairstyles below can be a new favourite for your morning regime – whether you’re running late for work or not.

Messy Bun

The messy bun is easily one of the best hairstyles ever created. There are many different ways to style a messy bun, but it takes just a few minutes to master. A messy bun is perfect for when you just don’t have time to have those frizzy ends behaving as they should. Just create a ponytail then twist your hair around into a bun form and fasten a hair tie over the top. It might not be anything special, but it’s a hairstyle that looks both smart and presentable.

Brush It Up

If time is of the essence and there’s no time to waste, grab your brush and get brushing! A Brush It Up style involves brushing your hair to remove all the tangles, then sweeping it upwards from the bottom to form a high ponytail. Once you’ve fastened that with a hair tie, put on a basic headband that sits a little back from your hairline. You’ll find you’re looking tidy and presentable in no time.

Wisdom Teeth

Your Guide to Wisdom Teeth

Posted on Posted in Beauty

If you start to feel pain or discomfort in your mouth during your late teens or early 20s, there’s every possibility your wisdom teeth are either growing through or have grown through. Unfortunately, very rarely does this final set of molars make their entrance known quietly. While there’s every possibility your wisdom teeth are healthy and properly aligned, there’s an even higher chance of them being misaligned and troublesome for your other teeth. As a result, it might be time to call upon the services of a dentist like Candlewood Dental Centre.

Knowing you may have to see a dentist about your wisdom teeth can be frightening for some people. Friends and family might have shared their horror stories with you, or you might just be afraid of the dentist. To alleviate your concerns and to give you as much information as you need, we’ve answered some frequently asked questions.

How do I know my wisdom teeth are causing problems?

Aside from general discomfort, wisdom teeth can make themselves known in a number of ways. Unlike your other teeth, they don’t just turn up and sit quietly. They usually arrive with a bit of uproar and tend to cause discontent with your other teeth. Wisdom teeth can be described as a bad neighbour, and they make themselves known in the following ways:

Botox Injections

How Exactly Does Botox Work?

Posted on Posted in Beauty

You may have heard lots about the benefits or even the side effects of Botox injections, but you may not realise exactly how they work. Many people opt to have Botox treatment to get rid of facial wrinkles that they feel make them look older or unattractive.  Some who want to reduce the cost of treatment go overseas, but this option should be considered carefully, especially if you’ve never had it before. Countries like Bali and Thailand are great places to visit, but not so much for having a cosmetic procedure.

Overseas medical and hygiene standards are not so high as Australian ones, so  choosing a cosmetic surgeon in Perth might be the better option. At least you know you’ll get a highly trained doctor. There are risks in having any kind of medical procedure in a Third World country.

So how does Botox actually work to get rid of those wrinkles in your face? Wrinkles are caused by the movement of muscles under the skin.  This muscle movement happens multiple times a day and eventually causes the skin to wrinkle permanently where it occurs. It’s something that you can’t stop from happening and the older you get the, the less elasticity is in the skin, so it doesn’t return to its normal place. The result is a wrinkle – or more likely, several wrinkles.

Waist Trainer

Are You Wearing Your Waist Trainer Properly?

Posted on Posted in Beauty

When you first learn about waist training, it can seem as simple as putting on a waist trainer and beginning exercise. However, there is a right and a wrong way to put it on and wear it. Have you been doing it correctly? Take note of these tips below.

Opt for the Lowest Setting

When you first begin waist training, you have to ease yourself into it. Otherwise, you may be so uncomfortable that you give up immediately and never look back. To prevent any pain or discomfort, secure your waist trainer on the lowest possible setting. Usually, waist trainers have a few rows of hooks that you can adjust as you get more comfortable wearing it. Choose the ones that give you more space – at least to begin with.

Get Ready

When it comes time to begin waist training, don’t rush the process of putting your new trainer on. It can take time – especially if you have never worn one before. The first step is to wrap it around your body but do not do it up just yet. Place your waist trainer so that the hemline at the bottom is above the area of your body that juts out the most – commonly the hips. Make sure you have the eyelets on the left and the hooks on the right.

Do it Up

Once again, for putting your trainer on for waist training, you will need to take your time. You may find you also need to suck in your tummy a little bit so don’t be afraid to lie down when you’re doing it up. Begin with the very bottom hook and hook it into place. Remember, the bottom of your waist trainer should be sitting above your hip line at this point. Once you have the bottom hook attached, pull it down over your hip region and begin doing the other catches up one at a time, pulling the material together as you go.
