Applying Your Mineral Powder Makeup

How many women have chosen just the right mineral powder makeup to work with their skin only to find that they cannot find the right look for them or the best way to apply the makeup?

Applying cosmetics requires common sense and a little practice. Few people can really tell you how to achieve the look you want – the look that will make you look at your best. There are however some general principles to help you.

By far the best look for most people is the natural look with a little makeup as possible. The best makeup artists know that the ultimate look is the one that leaves people guessing whether you are wearing any cosmetics or not. You need to learn how to emphasize your best features – and reduce any of which you may not be proud.

To learn more about applying mineral powder makeup, Angela Zalameda has some great tips in her article on the Beauty and Fitness Journal.

Mineral Powder Makeup: India Proves A Buoyant Market


Many women understand that one of the best healthy skin tips is to change from mass-market artificial cosmetics to mineral powder makeup using natural ingredients that help nourish the skin. Healthy skin looks that much more vital.

A second advantage of mineral powder makeup is that the various colours available can be mixed to achieve the right shade matching the wearer’s skin.

For these reason we should not be surprised that the market for such healthy makeup is expanding around the world; a new report from research agency RNCOS indicates that sales of mineral cosmetics are growing rapidly in India.

Price seems to have been an issue in previous years and leading manufacturers are responding by pricing their products more competitively. This means that sales are set to increase even more markedly in years to come.

Such a trend can only be reflected in other supposed ‘developing’ markets and manufacturers would be wise to adopt marketing policies to take advantage of the trend.

See more about the report on the RNCOS website.

Healthy Makeup For Skin: Looking Healthy At Work



We all love to look good and one of the places we are seen by most people is at work. Healthy skin tipsare always welcome, especially when they make us look good as we work at our jobs.

Being seen at our best, looking and feeling ravishing, has lots of advantages at work. Studies show that employees who look at their best tend to get the better jobs and opportunities. Those who look attractive tend to get paid more too (one author suggests 3 or 4% more).

Of course we should not always judge people by their looks, but the reality is that we are judged in this way. Sir Richard Branson put it this way, “Never judge people by appearance, but remember that everyone else does.”

We can help ourselves by ensuring our clothes are the most suitable and that we appear neat and well groomed but are their any healthy skin tips to help us further?

We can help ourselves by ensuring we are hydrated all day. This will help our body function properly and ensure the skin looks plump and healthy. It also helps keep energy levels up. We don’t need to drink lots of water though as eating most fruit will also provide lots of hydration.

Wear mineral makeup powder as this provides nutrition for your skin and will not clog the pores (the cause of most acne). By mixing powders you can also match the colour to your complexion and the skin-friendly characteristics mean mineral makeup powder can be worn all day with few or no problems.

Use your breaks and off-time constructively. During breaks at work, you might consider using a moisturiser to keep your look and maybe it would worth keeping a toner handy too. Once you get home in the evening, make sure you allocate enough time to sleep. This will enable your skin to recover from the day’s stresses and will restore your energy levels for the day to come. Whatever you do, relaxation time is important too; take time out for a good gossip around the water fountain, with the family at home or with fellow commuters.

Above all, keep the stress levels low. A smile is always the best of the healthy skin tips and helps the workday pass by smoothly.

Healthy Makeup For Skin: Keep It Simple

Many people must already know that the best look to aim for when applying all natural makeup, or any cosmetics for that matter, is the natural look. In other words, enhance your natural features without looking like you are wearing makeup at all.

Look at models and celebrities and compare them with teenagers who have only just started wearing cosmetics and you will see (in most cases!) that the more experienced wearers will tend to use all natural makeup and as little as possible.

In the same way, it is a good tip to enhance only one feature at a time. Professional makeup artists will rarely make the mistake of making every feature stand out.

Always use a good foundation as a blank canvas and then accentuate perhaps the lips or maybe the eyes – but never both together. Equally don’t redden the cheeks and use a strong lip colour too. Too much going on will make the whole effect overwhelming and too much like a clown.

Emphasizing the lips, for example, with a natural look in all other areas will give you a smouldering look that cannot fail to impress. Equally using your all natural makeup to promote the eyes and reduce the impact of the lips and rest of the face will draw attention to that feature and make you more intense.

As ever, you can play with your healthy makeup for skin and see how emphasizing each feature one-by-one changes your look. Have fun!

Tips To Beautiful Skin: Avoid Toxic Cosmetics

More information has come to light that seems to support the idea of using all natural makeup to look good. There has been increasing concern over recent years over the toxicity of the skin care and cosmetic products we all use day-to-day.

In the USA, The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics has been spearheading the drive and has produced some useful healthy skin tips.

Basically they recommend looking for beauty products with as simple as possible ingredients list on the bottles or tubes. Always avoid those containing synthetic products, particularly fragrances.

Sadly the beauty industry is generally unregulated so it is better for us all to understand what we are putting on our skins. The advent of the Internet means we can research products and their ingredients more easily. Do not take claims of all natural makeup, for example, as trustworthy; marketing claims may not be all they appear to be.

Vote with your money. Once you have identified the best products to use, buy them and avoid the unhealthy ranges. This means the producers who genuinely have the health of your skin in mind will prosper and those who do not will suffer.

In any case, why keep your conclusions to yourself? Share your own healthy skin tips online so others can benefit from them.

Healthy Makeup For Skin: Makeup – Mascara Tips

 

The key to having beautiful eyes that grab attention is knowing how to use mascara correctly. Mascara is the crowning touch when you apply eye makeup. If you’ve always been nervous about mascara, you’ll benefit from these mascara tips.

1. Don’t ever pump that mascara wand! Pumping is where you push the mascara brush into the bottle over and over, hoping to coat it with more mascara. It will just encourage the mascara to clot up and dry out more quickly.

2. Not all mascaras are created equal, so take the time to choose the product that’s right for you. At the same time, be aware that a lot of them are pretty much the same. Don’t automatically trust a label that says you’ll get the best results with this mascara. Also, keep in mind that some mascaras (and mascara wands) are indeed different.

If you want extra long lashes then you’ll need to choose mascara that offers that formula. If you want thicker lashes you’ll need to choose a different one.

3. Another one of the best mascara tips is to buy more than one color. You can have a lighter color for the daytime because you want your makeup to look subtler. At nighttime you can have a darker, more dramatic color.

But you can buy mascara in almost any color under the rainbow– violet, for example. What you buy depends on the look you want either now or in the future. If you keep lots of different mascara, you’ll be ready for any event.

4. When you’re applying the mascara, always start from the root of your lashes. That might seem like the simplest of mascara tips but there are many people who have never applied it before.

As you slide the brush down your eyelashes, wiggle the brush a bit. Then you’ll maneuver the wand in the right position to work your way up the lashes. Apply a quick second coat for the most beautiful look!

5. Be quick when you apply the second or third coat! If the first coat is already dry, just leave it alone. If you still want to add an extra coat, you’ll need to wash the first one off and start over. If you don’t do this, you’ll create nasty clumps in your lashes.

It’s good to know how to use mascara properly, because it can create such a beautiful and dramatic look. Now that you know all these mascara tips, you have a solid foundation to work with. Why not give these tips a try today?

Healthy Makeup For Skin: New Baked Mineral Cosmetics

Okay, so we all know we should take good care of our skin and many know by now that one of the best ways to do this is wear all natural makeup. This helps the skin to breathe and it also provides extra nutrition to keep that glowing complexion.

One range of such healthy makeup for skin that is starting to make an impact on the cosmetics scene – particularly with the makeup professionals – is the Proto-col range.

For some time Proto-col have offered a high quality range of cosmetics designed to help your skin be at its best but now the company has developed a new range that improves the benefits to the skin still further.

They have called it their Baked Mineral Cosmetics and it promises to help all women look ravishing.

The aim is to give flawless coverage whilst also smoothing the skin. The key ingredients include safflower, lavender, rosemary, green tea, magnolia bark and jojoba and these work with each other to provide an amazing synergy designed to rejuvenate and calm your skin.

The combination of these natural ingredients means the cosmetics are hypoallergenic while restoring the skins natural PH balance and healing any imperfections. Together the substances also protect your skin and the specific combination of safflower and magnolia bark helps the hydration of the skin and provides a protective barrier to retain the moisture and sooth any skin problems.

The range of healthy makeup for skin offered can seem fairly limited, with three or four colours of foundations, eye shadow and mineral shimmers, until you realise that all the products have light reflecting abilities, which makes them suitable to most skin shades.

In any case, these are mineral cosmetics so the different shades can be combined to find the perfect colour for your skin.

If you care about your skin and want to look fantastic during the year ahead then you probably owe it to yourself to take a look at the new healthy makeup for skin in the Proto-col Baked Mineral Cosmetics range to be found at LookRavishing.com.

My Personal Healthy Skin Tips

 

 
My mother always laughed when I talked to her about the latest beauty product I had found and asked her for tips to beautiful skin. She had always washed with soap and water and had never used any face creams. Right into her eighties, she still had good skin – though obviously she hadn’t worried about trying to stop the wrinkles!
I am not so lucky and my skin gets dry easily. It is also quite sensitive – I learnt the hard way not to use strong soap if I didn’t want a puffy face! I don’t have a complicated skin routine. However, I am in my 50s and have managed to delay too many of the dreaded wrinkles so I assume I am doing something right. My healthy skin tips are simple and nothing we haven’t all heard before. These tips are:

  • Eat well – follow advice about healthy eating and drinking;
  • Protect your skin from the sun all the time, not just when you are sunbathing;
  • If you want a tan, read about tips for fake tanning and use of sunless tan lotions on this website;
  • Cleanse thoroughly with a gentle cleanser – even if you are really tired before you go to bed;
  • Find a moisturiser that suits you and use it;
  • Use a dedicated moisturiser around the eye area and be careful when applying – ‘be gentle’ is the order of the day.

There are no magic solutions and we are all different. However, we do all owe it to ourselves to look after our skin so, if you haven’t done so already, develop a routine that suits you and stick to it.
H.G.

Selecting A Healthy Makeup For Skin

Many people now understand that using an all natural makeup rather than the more common chemical cosmetics benefits the skin.

The best makeup for your skin uses natural ingredients, which work with the skin rather than simply cover blemishes like so many other cosmetics. As a healthy skin makes you look good anyway, this means you are more likely to look at your best.

Equally a good brand of mineral makeup will be available in subtle shades: this makes it easier to achieve that holy grail of skincare – the natural look. A good beauty regime emphasizes the shape of your face, the attractive features we all have and helps give your skin the glow it needs. The key is to do all this without looking like you are wearing makeup at all.

The right cosmetics will be from an all natural makeup range containing fine mineral powders from natural sources. Unfortunately many brands contain talc, fragrances, alcohol and artificial dyes that often react with the skin and, as a result, a significant number of women feel they cannot wear makeup at all.

If you do have a problem wearing makeup it would be worth your while trying a good all natural makeup – you may well be surprised at the results.

Why not begin your search by looking at the great range of natural makeup to be found at LookRavishing.com?

Healthy Makeup For Skin: Mineral Makeup And Rosacea

A surprisingly large number of people are particularly keen to find a healthy makeup for skin as they suffer from a potentially embarrassing condition called rosacea.

The causes of rosacea are not yet known and as a result no cure is available. The condition is not dangerous or even physically debilitating but does cause awkwardness in social situations. The American national Rosacea Association reports that 88 percent of patients with severe symptoms tell the condition affects their professional activities. More than half even say they have missed work as a result. Three quarters of patients admit rosacea led to a reduced self-confidence.

Rosacea has a variety of symptoms such as redness on the face, watery or irritated eyes, pimples and bumps on the face and even visible blood vessels on the face.

There are various treatments available from medical professionals such as dermatologists and these may include avoiding foods or conditions that may make the condition worse. Circumstances that exacerbate the condition include hot baths, overly warm environments, sunshine and cold winds. Alcohol and hot drinks dilate the blood vessels and so make rosacea worse but certain foods (such as vinegar, spinach, spicy foods, citrus fruit and chocolate) and medicines also trigger increased symptoms. Interestingly exercise, stress and the menopause have an effect too.

Skin care and cosmetics have to chosen with care of course. Anything containing alcohol is to be avoided at all costs. A healthy makeup for skin, mineral cosmetics, is also useful for rosacea sufferers. Makeup of course is a friend to those who have the condition as it can camouflage the redness but it is best to try mineral all natural makeup as more traditional and cheaper types may irritate the skin still further.

Obviously the skin is already red so any healthy makeup for skin you use should be chosen to reduce this and it is a good idea to use a neutral lip colour, as an extreme red will only emphasis the rosacea. Equally rosacea can result in over sensitive eyes and again an all natural makeup would be more sympathetic around the eyes. Easy application with a brush is also an advantage.

As with all makeup, it is better to minimize the amount of cosmetics used. The best look is always the natural look but careful use of healthy makeup for skin can help to reduce the effects of rosacea and yet give the wearer a healthy natural-looking glow.

To find out more about rosacea, go to the useful Rosacea.org website and to find out more about the all natural makeup available from Proto-col, you will find the LookRavishing.com site useful.
