Ways to Be Cute

Young hearts know that being ‘cute’ is one of the best ways to get noticed. And if you think about it logically, ‘cute’ could mean a number of things. A concept as vague as ‘cute’ can get difficult to explain. And yet we labor on, ’cause when it comes to the matters of the heart, logic hardly ever plays a part. So young boys and girls (especially), and older men and women (sometimes), realize that being ‘cute’ is going to win them the edge and get them noticed. Is it good to be cute, though? Sure, what could be the harm in being cute? If nothing else, it is definitely an esteem booster. In this article, we will try and understand what goes into becoming cute (for yourself, or for someone special). Read on for some answers.

Ways to Be Cute

Being cute could include a whole lot of things. Attitude, looks, dressing, mannerisms… the list is endless. And at the end of it all, it is rather impossible to decide whether what one person finds cute and endearing is something that the other will find cute and endearing. But we can definitely try to give you some general rules that you can follow. Here’s how to be cute and flirty with someone that you want to impress, or notice.

Accessories
Girls? Find a characteristic style to accessorize with. An accessory that sets you apart? A cute hair piece with a bunch of hair out. Nothing like a hairband to get the cute factor running. It has something to do with the whole phenomenon of being on the playground as kids again, with frilly frocks and bows and ribbons. Think about it. And while you can’t go about emulating that style in middle school (and please don’t), you can definitely carry the essence through with some cute hair dos or accessories. Think of some other accessory you think you can make even cuter and use it to your advantage―like glasses or hats perhaps? As for the guys? And I’ve seen this work―slightly untidy hair is perceived as really, really cute. The coaxed, pulled back, and gelled hair might look sleek and classy, but the way it just peeks out can be very appealing (and might I add, charming) as well. The idea is to get the slight out-of-bed look.

Dress to Impress
There are some clothes that are sexy―like leather pants or halter tops or guys with white crisp shirts and blue jeans. But then there are those that have a universal cute factor attached to them. For girls? Cute outfits like frilly tops, paired with cute skirts always seem to make a mark. As for the guys―try keeping the first two buttons of your shirt open, or try pulling the shirt out of your pants a little and letting it be out. You might think that girls don’t notice these things, but they do.

Making Pretty
Here’s the deal… you have a face, make it cuter by highlighting your features. A simple shave can get a guy noticed just so easily. And girls? A lip gloss of a subtle color that draws attention to your lips? Why not think in that direction? You can also try applying a little mascara or an eye liner and get a lot cuter. Applying a fruity perfume or a more masculine musk one can get you noticed just as easily and there’s nothing like a whiff of it to set the cute factor in place.

It’s All in the Talk
How you interact and what you say to the other, can instantly give you the cute status. Be funny, be flirty, and talk sense. You could even use some cute pickup lines or messages to make the impression last. You’ll find them by the dozen on the net.

Nicknames
Cliché? Hell no. It works, it so works. Now imagine you have a bunch of friends who call you by your name and then someone comes up with a cute nickname for you (not sickening, cute) or finds a cute way of saying an already existing nickname. Wouldn’t that warm your heart? Why do you think guys come up with cute nicknames for their girlfriend and vice versa? That is one of the charms of getting an exclusive name for yourself. One of the best ways to be cute is to start calling someone by a sweet moniker. (But be sure that they aren’t irritated by it in any way.)

Smile
You try to find whatever ways you need of how to be cute, but there is nothing, and I mean nothing that is as good as a smile. A potent smile. A smile can literally take away the awkwardness of any situation and make you feel warm. And if it’s a dimpled smile, you’re really done for. If you haven’t realized the power of the smile, then I suggest you get to it right now. Cute, cute, cute.

And that’s how one brings in the cute factor the right way and makes it last and linger on. These are some of the ways that you can try out, after which, it is all a matter of trial and error to see the kind of reactions that you get from people or that someone special and then change what you want. Then again, being cute for yourself and for no one in particular is something that will give you confidence like nothing much else. Try it for yourself and see what I mean.

Quick Beauty Tips for You

download-24Most of us do not have the time for an elaborate beauty routine before we get ready for work. Whether you are a working girl or a new mom, makeup and skin care is the last thing on your mind when you are rushing to get your work done. But no matter how busy you are, looking good and presentable is something that is essential.

Quick and Easy Beauty Tips

Here are some tips that you can make use of when you do not have much time to spare.

  • One makeup product that you simply cannot do without is a concealer. The key for having a luminous blemish-free complexion is to get the right shade of concealer. Do not buy concealers that are several shades lighter than your skin, as you will end up looking too pale and made up. The correct way to apply concealer is to dot the concealer on your face, on areas that need maximum coverage, like under the eyes and around the nose. Now gently use you fingertips to blend the concealer in gentle outward movements. When you are done, dust some loose powder to set the makeup.
  • If you have fairly good skin, you do not need to apply any foundation. Applying foundation takes time and if you are not careful, by mid afternoon it starts caking and streaking your face. Instead, you can apply a light concealer for problem areas like under eye dark circles and brown spots. To replace foundation, you can also opt for a tinted moisturizer. This gives you medium to light coverage with a natural dewy appearance that lasts all day long.
  • When you apply lipstick, make sure that you do so with a lip brush. Apply a lip liner in a shade that closely matches your lipstick shade and avoid using a dark liner with a light lipstick. Lipsticks hold better when the lips are smooth and free of any cracks, so make sure that once a week you exfoliate your lips with a soft baby toothbrush. Applying a bit of lip gloss right in the middle of your lower lips will give it a more plump and luscious look.
  • One of the best and quick tips is to apply concealer on the top of your lip line to instantly make your lips appear fuller and more defined.
  • If you suffer from puffy eyes, then here is a quick beauty tip to get rid of it. Keep two spoons in the refrigerator overnight and then place them under you eyes for a few seconds. To open up your eyes use an eyelash curler. Just hold the curler as close as possible to your lash line and press for a few seconds. Apply two sweeps of volumizing mascara, allowing the first coat to dry before applying the second coat.
  • Ditch the boring black and brown eye liners and go for colors in eye makeup. Do not be afraid to experiment with different hues of eye liners and eye shadows. Use navy blue, turquoise, moss green, and bronze eye liners to define your eyes. Avoid using liquid eyeliners as they look too harsh. Use a soft eye pencil instead. If you want eye shadow to last all day, make sure that you apply a primer on your lids before applying eye shadow.
  • If you have a pale complexion, nothing brightens it up more than a quick sweep of blush. Use a formulation that you are comfortable with, and make sure that you apply it only on the apple of you cheeks to get an even appearance. Gel and mousse formulas are longer lasting and work well for oily skin.
  • When you do not have the time to shampoo your hair, and it looks a little limp and oily, a quick way to revive those strands is by using a bit of baby powder on the roots of hair. Just tilt your head after applying baby powder and brush it with a big paddle brush. It will give you instant volume and the powder will soak up any excess oil.
  • When you have a bad hair day, do not waste time and effort to blow dry your hair. Just pull back your hair into a low ponytail or create a chignon to look polished and chic.

These were some tips that will not only make you look gorgeous, but can also be done in very little time. You also need to take care of your hand and feet to look polished and well-groomed. Go for a monthly manicure and pedicure, and apply a good moisturizing lotion on your hands and feet to make them soft and supple. Purchase the right makeup tools and never compromise on quality products. Lastly, do not forget to spritz yourself with your favorite perfume to feel fresh all day.

Tips and Tricks to Look Natural Beauty

images-22Many people like to use natural beauty tips. They prefer to use natural products instead of synthetic ones and feel that these products will be gentler to their skin and cause less adverse reactions. The healthier you are, the better you will look. If you want fair and smooth skin take 2 tsp lemon juice, 1 tsp glycerin and 3 tsp rose.

When your rind is arid go one nut and play it till effervescent. Add 1 tsp honey. 1 tsp glycerin, 1 tsp mineral oil. Apply this on the cheek and new arid areas on the system and washing after 15 minutes. If you made normal nail cleaner drench them in water with lemon for 5 minutes and so drench them in a less piece of milk for 5 extra minutes. If you take hair conditioner mixture a nut light-colored, one tablespoon of honey, and the juice of one lemon or lime. Apply all over the hair and depart it on for 20 minutes. Wash the hair with chilly water. For best results do this twice a month.

Natural Beauty Tips :-

Sleeping on your back will prevent many wrinkles and breakouts on your face, and even wrinkles in your cleavage area.

Put on a coat of clear nail polish before a colored polish to keep your nails from discoloring.

Vitamins and minerals are needed for health and beauty, but more is not always better. Too much Vitamin A or Selenium can cause hair loss. There is nothing beautiful about losing your hair.

When shaving, don’t stretch the skin or you could cause ingrown hairs by shaving hair off slightly under the skin.

Instead of shaving over and over, with the hairs coming in darker and thicker each time, try waxing. Waxing to remove hair will result in softer hairs each time and result in permanent hair loss after a few sessions. Aussie Nad’s is an all-natural product which is easy to use.

After washing your face, rinse in cold water (fair-skinned people should use cool instead of cold) to close the pores and tighten the facial muscles.

Clean hair brushes occasionally with dish soap and borax. In a dishpan of very warm water, add 1/2 cup of borax and a few drops of liquid dish soap. Swish the brushes to stir, rinse, and let air dry. Scrub any stubborn spots with a used toothbrush.

Tighten bra straps as they stretch out, or buy a new bra when they can’t tighten any further, to keep the bosom looking young and perky.

Being angry really does take away from your beauty now and will result in more wrinkles later.

Exercise while dieting is a must or your skin will be too large (and saggy) for your smaller body. It is much, much tougher to tighten skin after your body shrinks than as you go.

Good posture can make you look much slimmer.

 

Gothic Makeup Ideas for You

download-23The Goth subculture is believed to be a symbolism of the death of humanity. Gothic makeup then, along with other elements of the typical appearance of those belonging to this subculture, such as the clothes and hairdos, is one of the most prominent representational element of this belief.
Those who sport Gothic-inspired outfits are usually dressed in black, and this color is usually the basis upon which Gothic makeup is done. In order to wear Gothic makeup you don’t necessarily need to follow the subculture. There are aspects of this look that can be adapted to your every day makeup as well.

The Face
•The first thing you will notice about this look is the white, pallid face. However, this is not necessary, and in fact, it is suggested that you opt for foundation in a color only one shade lighter than your skin tone. You want to look realistic while sporting this look. Use a face powder to even out the foundation.

• Blush is an option, but in some cases it can be used to give definition to your face. Apply blush of darker shade on your cheek bones and jawline.

The Eyes
•In the Gothic look, it is the eyes that are always the center of attention, and that should receive maximum attention from you. While the makeup can be as light or as heavy as you want. A deep black liquid eyeliner is essential. It should ideally be worn thick giving smokey effect. Use dark colors like bottle green, navy blue, deep purple, or even red for some drama.
•To achieve a Gothic look is to try out cat eye makeup. Extend the eyeliner beyond the corner of your eye, to make a wing or a swirl. You may also simply extend the eyeshadow beyond the corners of the eyes for some definition.
•There are no bounds to your creativity while trying out Gothic eye makeup. For example, you can choose to wear blood red mascara instead of the regular black. Also try out false eyelashes to give your eyes greater definition. Keeping in mind the shape of the eyes is very important while trying out these techniques. If you have deep set or small eyes, don’t go heavy on the eye makeup. Stick to kohl and eyeliner.

The Lips
•Dark, deep shades of lipstick are perfect to achieve the Gothic look. Apply a suitable lip liner before the lipstick so that you can prevent the color from bleeding. Try to avoid pure black lipstick. Rather, opt for a deep plum, a deep red, or even a blood red lipstick.

•If you want the focus of your look to remain on your eyes, you can go for a nude shade of lipstick instead of dark colors. Finish off with a touch of clear lip gloss and you’re good to go!

The Nails
•Paint your nails in black, red, plum, or in a blackish-brown tone. It looks vamp-like, and adds a finishing touch to the overall look.

•For those of you who find this look too basic, opt for funky nail art and take your Goth look to a whole new level.

Gothic Makeup for Men
•The first thing imperative to Gothic makeup, even for men, is the eyeliner. It does not matter if you don’t choose to apply any other form of makeup; kohl and eyeliner are essentials for this look.

•Go for black lipstick, but if you find it too stark, try a gray color.

•Nail polish is another element that you can sport, and if you are comfortable with the look, try a stark black one.
