Read This Article On Making Yourself Beautiful

When people think of someone that is beautiful, many times it is based on inner beauty as well as outer beauty. Both of these things are in your control to change. You really need to have both to look your best. Here are some tips to get you started on your own personal beauty adventure.

If your tendency to bite your fingernails is a nervous habit, try taking up a hobby that is sure to keep your hands busy and occupied during your downtime. This could be knitting, sketching, or even doing crossword puzzles. This can save your nails while you watch television, movies, or lounge around the house.

You can make your own beautifying face mask for oily, shiny skin using only milk of magnesia. This liquid is cheap and available with the stomach preparations at any drugstore. Saturate a cotton ball in the liquid, then wipe it gently over the skin at its oiliest areas. Allow the milk of magnesia to dry for ten minutes, then rinse it off. Do this every night.

To make close set eyes appear further apart, apply your eye makeup so it is heaver on the outer edges of your eyes. Use light eyeshadow on the inner half of your eyes and darker shadow on the outer half, blending the two together seamlessly in the middle. Then, to finish off the look, apply your eyeliner and mascara so that it is heavier at the outer corner. This will give the illusion that your eyes are set further apart.

When applying a liquid liner, keep your eyes open to keep the line from looking uneven. Start by applying the liner in three dashes, one in the inside corner of the eye, one in the middle and one on the corner, then go back and connect the dashes for a smooth and beautiful line.

A quick touch-up with some makeup you have on hand can stop your roots from showing until you can get to the hair salon. For dark hair, hide the gray roots with a touchup of black mascara at the roots. For blonde hair, apply hairspray at the roots, and dust on a little loose, gold eye shadow.

If you have an important meeting, take special care with your perfume. Keep the scent light and airy so as not to overwhelm. You should put a small amount behind your ears and on your wrists. This will assure that you smell great when you are hugging and shaking hands at the meeting.

If you suffer from oily hair, you may want to consider cutting back on hair styling products. The ingredients in them are a main cause of oil build up. Also, try to use shampoos and conditioners that are made specifically for people with oily or greasy hair.

You learned from the beginning of this article that is important to have both inner beauty and outer beauty to be considered truly beautiful. You may appear pretty at first, though if you have a bad personality, your beauty will wear off very quickly. Take the advice this article has given you to take your beauty to the next level.
