"Strength of character means the ability to overcome resentment against others, to hide hurt feelings, and to forgive quickly"
really? I'm gonna have to disagree... To you need to hide your feelings in order to be strong?? on the contrary! you're supposed to say what's wrong to make people understand you; then you'll have a strong character! Forgive quickly? I dunno about quickly...are you just gonna forgive without thinking?! no. Think Before You Act!
Everyone should have a face cleansing routine; so if you don't have one yet, this is for you.
Mornings: -Cleanse your face with a cleanser. It is much better than using normal soap. If you have oily skin, use an oil-free one.
-Tone your face with a toner to shrink pores and tighten your skin. Toners also remove all traces of dirt, make-up or cleanser that remain after cleansing. Be careful! DO NOT USE A TONER THAT CONTAINS ALCOHOL because: alcohols evaporate easily, taking water from the surface of the skin which obviously causes the skin to dry A LOT. When the skin is dry, it becomes tight. So not only will it make your skin dry, but it will also cause oilier skin. (because the alcohol would have sucked all of the oil from the skin; but your skin needs some of this oil).
-Moisturize (you can either use a day moisturizing face cream/gel that contains SPF (protection from the sun) or a moisturizer and use sunblock separately)
At night: -Remove your make up with make up remover (i recommend L'Oreal) or wipes. -Cleanse your face -Apply toner -Apply night cream or moisturizing cream that DOES NOT CONTAIN SPF.
Quick Tip: If your pores look big, get an ice cube and pass it all over your face. this will make you feel fresh and make your pores smaller.
Once or Twice a week: Exfoliate. This will deeply clean your face.
I've heard a lot of good things about The Clinique Three Step System but i haven't tried it yet. A lot of people recommend it. Here's a picture of it ;)
hello everyone! If you wear glasses and you're wondering how you can make yourself look good without having to take them off, then this is your place to be! It's not complicated at all, just read those tips... ;)
If you are nearsighted, your eyes will look smaller behind glasses. On the other hand, if you are farsighted, then glasses will make your eyes look larger.
This is what you are going to need to do:
-Conceal under your eyes using a concealer that really suits you! (Yellow, Peach, Green...) Because glasses tend to make this area quite shadowy, so this is an important step!
Quick Tip: Find an opaque concealer if you have really dark circles.
-Define your eyebrows: this is important too because glasses bring attention to the eyebrows, so you want those to look good. Pluck your eyebrows (if needed!! )and redefine them by using any dark matte eyeshadow. This will help shape them up.
-eyeshadow: Use a light (white) eyeshadow on the lid, and a darker color (grey or brown...) on the crease, to give your eyes more depth.
Quick Tip: Prime your eyes to make your eyeshadow last longer.
-eyeliner: Use a white eyeliner to line your water line. It will make you look more awake, and make your eyes brighter. Line your lower lashline with any color you like. I think that blue is pretty. Also, line your lash line with a darker color, black is good.
-Lashes: Curl them if you need to. If not, then you can directly apply your favourite mascara. Don't use too much though and focus more on the lower part of your lashes. Personally, I prefer using volumizing mascara more than lengthening mascara.
Quick Tip: If you usually use foundation, it is preferable that you use Mineral Foundation when you are wearing your glasses, because if you take them off, it might look a little smudged on the top of your nose.
You can also apply blush and lip gloss to complete your simple look.
Thanks for reading!
Be Happy && Feel Good About Yourself with and without your glasses ;)
