There are so many things you can do to help enhance your natural beauty these days. From self-care, your lifestyle choices (diet, exercise, sleep), or getting things done like eyelash extensions, or brow lamination, so that you do not have to wear make-up, are all options. In this article, I am going to focus mostly on the cosmetics side of enhancing your natural beauty.
First and foremost, having a daily skin care routine, day and night, is an absolute must. Nighttime is especially important. Throughout the day we are exposed to environmental toxins and pollution that are floating around in the air, all of which gets on our skin. We also need to remove dirt, oil, dead skin cells, etc. Consider using a washcloth or a cleansing brush to really remove the mixture of grime. Taking extra care to remove all eye make-up. Elizabeth Tanzi from Washingtonian, states that “…if you wear makeup overnight, it can clog and inflame the delicate glands and skin around the eyes causing irritated, red, and sometimes puffy eyes.” Our skin naturally repairs and restores itself while we sleep at night and not cleansing our face before we go to bed minimizes your skin’s ability to do so. It sounds like doing this one thing, will help enhance our natural beauty. I know I will not be skipping any nightly face cleansing, not even when I am oh-so-tired. Just not worth it.
Now for all the fun cosmetic ways to enhance natural beauty:Lash lift and tint is probably one of the easiest, most painless, affordable and lowest maintenance treatments you can do for your eyes, making them look instantly brighter and more open, giving you a youthful appearance. This service allows you to not have to curl your lashes or wear mascara. About every 6 weeks or so, depending on your skin care routine and lash cycle, is when you would need to get them lifted again. Tinting, you can have done about every 2-4 weeks, as its not as permanent as the lift. This is different for every individuals needs. Eyelash Extensions is another way to enhance the appearance of your eyes. This service is a little more upkeep, needing fill appointments about every 2-3 weeks depending on your aftercare. This service is so worth it; to not have to do anything but brush and cleanse your lashes, which I am sure we will all be doing properly, knowing how bad it is not washing off our makeup properly. To be able to wake up and look like you are already put together is my favorite thing. I am too critical of myself, which I know is not a good thing and I try not to be, but I just do not like my tired sleep face in the morning. How my husband can look fine waking up and I look like a disaster, is just not fair! Eyelash extensions help give you the appearance of already having your makeup done first thing in the morning. It is no wonder, how this service gets more and more popular. Brow lamination and tint will give you the appearance of a thicker, fuller brow. You can style them to be fluffy, but that is not the only thing that brow lamination is good for. If you have curly, or out of control brow hairs, lamination will help you control your brow hairs and help you to be able to style them however you choose. Add a tint to this service and you will really be happy with your eyebrows! They will look even more thick and full between both services. You can use Lash Stuff Eyelash & Eyebrow Styling Gel to style them and keep them in place all day. This product comes in handy when you are going swimming, a theme park, etc., too, by locking those hairs in place. There is something about having your brows done, making them more symmetrical, that really helps to open your eyes up. Which leads me to my next topic… it is more invasive than these other ways to enhance your natural beauty, but only needs to be done once a year, or even once every three years… Microblading/shading.Microblading is a semi-permanent technique where the artist adds hair-like strokes to your eyebrows to give them the appearance of being thicker and more symmetrical, or if you have no eyebrows, this will give you the appearance of having eyebrows that look like hair is there. There are different techniques within this, that you can do to really customize the service for everyone. If you have microblading done, you won’t have to do a dang thing with your eyebrows, except get them touched up roughly once a year. Yes, it is a pricier option to enhance your natural beauty, but well worth it. All the time and money you will save not having to worry about drawing/penciling in your eyebrows everyday and staying on top of purchasing your product that you need. Just keep in mind that if you get this done, and you are someone that wants/needs to laminate, or tint your eyebrows still, it will cause your microblading to fade prematurely, requiring more frequent touch-up’s. Just something to keep in mind.
If we have eyebrows and eyelashes done, look out world! We are saving time in the morning because we don’t have to or feel the need to spend as much time getting ready. We are already put together! Just gotta wash our face, brush our hair and teeth! Oh, and don’t forget about having a cup of coffee, I know I wont be!
We are all naturally beautiful, even if we don’t feel like we are, let me tell you, YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL!! It is so important to love and accept yourself for who you are. Having said that, it is ok to want to enhance your natural beauty. Doing things that make us feel more beautiful, gives us confidence, which in turn, makes us more beautiful! So, get plenty of rest, eat well, and drink plenty of water, as this will help enhance your natural beauty as well!
