It's Your Plucky
Day: Get Great Brows At Home!
They're the frame of the face and
yet they too often go untouched.
We're talkin' eyebrows. For some
unlucky folks, overgrown eyebrows
can overshadow their looks. You know
the type: hair here, hair there, and
A properly shaped brow makes eyes
look bigger and cheekbones appear
higher. It gives the face strength
Sure, you could go to a pricey salon
and have them plucked by a "pro."
But if you're like me you refuse to
spend good money on things you can
do for virtually nothing at home.
Today's your plucky day because I
have 5 free tips for beating your
brows into submission.
1. Tweeze It! Tweeze immediately
after showering or apply a hot washcloth
to loosen hair follicles.
2. The Golden Arches! Brush
your brows up to find your natural
3. For Good Measure! Hold
a pencil vertically (up and down)
against the outside of your eye. This
is where the eyebrow should end.
4. The Pencil Test, Part 2!
Hold a pencil vertically against the
bridge (center) of the nose. Your
inner eyebrow should start at the
inside edge of the pencil.
5. Removing Unwanted Hairs!
Use an eyelash comb or small toothbrush
and comb brows upwards. Trim any hairs
that extend beyond the natural top
of the brow.
20 Quick Beauty Fixes
Beauty fades... but only when you
Keeping a fresh, polished look may
require some upkeep. However, with
minimal effort you can improve yourself
from head to toe -- and every little
bit counts. After all, the sum is
the whole of its parts.
Even when time isn’t on your
side, there are simple ways to optimize
your appearance without spending a
fortune on costly cosmetics and beauty
products. Better nails, healthy hair,
smoother skin and a flawless face
can be yours with the help of these
20 quick beauty fixes.
1. If you’re in a hurry, a
little concealer is all you really
need to look rejuvenated and awake.
Just dab a little under the eyes and
on any blemishes, and you’re
good to go.
2. Pedicures and manicures always
look fresher and last longer if you
choose a nail polish color in a neutral
color, like light pink, nude or beige.
If the polish chips, the result is
less noticeable than if you were wearing
a bright hue, like red.
3. To get rid of dry, flaky lips,
gently scrub them with a soft, wet
toothbrush (preferably one you don’t
use to brush your teeth). Dab a little
Vaseline or your favorite lip balm
onto the toothbrush and to give your
lips a mini-exfoliation.
4. Cucumbers aren’t just great
in salads. For puffy eyes, thinly
sliced cucumbers put over the eyes
really works. Just make sure to refrigerate
the slices for 15 minutes before applying.
If you don’t have cucumbers,
moistened, refrigerated tea bags also
5. Got a case of the oilies but don’t
have time to wash your hair? Sprinkle
a little baby powder onto your hairbrush
or directly on your hair. The powder
will help to absorb excess oil. Be
careful not to overdo it, or you’ll
make your hair appear gray.
6. Drier lipsticks last longer than
those which contain more emollients
or oil. As a general rule, matte finishes
will have more staying power, so if
you don’t like retouching your
lipstick frequently throughout the
day, skip the gloss.
7. For super-smooth legs, wait to
shave until the end of your shower.
The hot water will help to soften
the hairs, making them easier to remove.
8. If mascara frequently clumps and
globs on your lashes, try wiping your
mascara wand off with a tissue to
remove excess product. What is left
on the wand is enough to coat your
lashes without the mess.
9. If you are prone to “poofy”
hair, try rinsing your hair with cool
or cold water next time you shampoo.
This helps the cuticle to lie flat,
making the hair appear smoother.
10. If you don’t have room
in your purse to carry a makeup bag,
you can get away with one lipstick
for your whole face. Pick a neutral
color that can do double duty as a
lip and cheek color. Dab a few dots
on the cheeks and blend with your
fingers for instant color.
11. Powder bronzer is also a great
multi-purpose product that doesn’t
take up too much space. Carry a small
blush brush to add color to the cheeks
and eyes. Also, try patting a little
bit on top of clear lip-gloss or lip
balm for a different lip color.
12. Get unruly brows into shape using
a little hair gel. Groomed brows instantly
open and frame the eye and makes eye
makeup look a lot more polished.
13. If you don’t have time
to mess around with multiple eye shadow
colors, a single, neutral shade works
wonders. Pick one that has a slight
sheen (not glittery) in the bone or
beige color family and apply the color
to the entire lid. A matte, textured
eye shadow can look too chalky.
14. Next time you’re making
a purchase at the beauty counter,
ask for samples or trial sizes. Not
only is it a great way to try out
something new, but they also come
in handy for traveling.
15. Instead of carrying a purse-sized
spray of your favorite perfume, try
layering products, like body wash,
powder and lotion (all of the same
fragrance, of course) to make your
fragrance last through the evening.
16. Banish a bad hair day by creating
a side part and combing hair into
a smooth, low ponytail. Secure with
a hair band the same color as your
hair and spray with a light hold hairspray.
Remember, there’s nothing more
chic than simple and classic.
17. Make your teeth look whiter without
a trip to the dentist by choosing
a lip color with a blue undertone.
Cool reds, berries, burgundies and
wines will help make your smile look
18. If you’re long overdue
for a haircut but don’t have
time to visit your stylist, try an
at-home deep conditioning treatment
to add moisture and shine. Use it
once or twice a week to keep your
hair protected until you can get your
19. Try wearing white or light-colored
eyeliner on the bottom inner rim of
your eyes, paired with a navy or very
dark blue liner on the lash line.
The contrast of the colors will make
eyes appear bigger and brighter.
20. To smooth and soften rough elbows
and knees, use a gentle body scrub
in the shower and follow up with a
rich moisturizer containing alpha
hydroxy acid. You can also do the
same for your feet and give yourself
a mini foot treatment.
