I will admit that at times, countless other women and I experience some beauty mishaps that can be downright annoying! But through experience and training, I have some extremely uncomplicated remedies that will correct these beauty issues that you may run into from time to time. Don’t fret, it’s an easy fix!
Problem: Makeup doesn’t last through the entire day.
Easy Fix: Primer.
Purchase a great primer. Primer prepares the skin for makeup application. It will smooth out any lines you may have and protect the skin by creating a thin barrier between your skin and your makeup. Primer also gives your foundation or tinted moisturizer something to adhere to.
Problem: Dry Lips.
Easy Fix: Vitamin E Oil.
This is a major problem especially if you’re experiencing these brutal New York City Winters. One of my favorite remedies is using Vitamin E Oil! I apply a dime-sized amount to my lips right before bed, so my lips can be repaired throughout the night. I also recommend exfoliating your lips to remove any dead skin that you may have. Don’t have a lip scrub? No worries! You can simply use your toothbrush to gently remove any extra skin you may have and apply Vitamin E Oil directly after.
Problem: Oily Nose.
Easy Fix: Powder.
This is my pet peeve! For the small percentage of women who don’t have to combat this issue, I think I speak for the rest of us when I say I envy you! lol A lot of people have issues with what is known as the t-zone area (nose, forehead, and cheek area), especially if you have combination skin. So in addition to using a great non-oily primer to absorb any excess oil, you should also try using a powder to set your makeup as opposed to a setting spray.
Problem: Discolored or dull-looking teeth.
Easy Fix: Hydrogen Peroxide.
Okay beauties, so I know there are tons of bleaching agents and whitening strips that promise to give your teeth a makeover and some of them will actually give you great results. But I have been using something just as powerful that you can find at your local drugstore for about .69: hydrogen peroxide! Yes, hydrogen peroxide that you use to prevent infections from open wounds is also an amazing oral agent! I have literally been using peroxide for years to keep my teeth white and healthy-looking. Simply gargle with a small amount of peroxide before brushing your teeth and you will see a major difference in the brightness of your smile.
Remember, when it comes to beauty, there’s always an “easy fix”! Have fun being beautiful!
