Beauty Tips 101

I ran across a list of easy beauty tips in the February 2013 edition of O Magazine. Here are a few I thought would be fun to share.
  
Tension Tamer - Deep breathing cues your nervous system to calm down, and that relaxation shows up in your face. Close your mouth and inhale through your nose for a count of four. Hold your breath for a count of seven. Exhale slowly through your mouth for a count of eight. Repeat this cycle three more times. (This sounds like a good thing to try when I'm ready to yell at my kids! A mini-timeout for mommy!)
  
Lip Amplifier - Run a liquid highlighter along the bottom edge of your mouth and over your Cupid's bow to make your lips look fuller.
  
Style Reviver - Dry shampoo instantly absorbs the excess oil that makes hair fall flat. Spritz it at your roots, particularly along your part and at your hairline. Let it sit for a few minutes, then brush through.

And here are a couple fun tips from Woman's Day January 2013 issue. These are "odd family beauty secrets."
  
"My grandmother taught me to curl my hair using only bobby pins." Pin curls are still an effective way to get natural-looking waves. After washing and drying your hair, take one-inch pieces, spin each one away from your face until it spirals up to your scalp, and pin it in place with bobby pins. The longer the curls set, the more pronounced they will be. Thirty minutes gets you some loose waves.

"My mom used lipstick on her cheeks, and I do the same!" This is a great way to create a realistic hue. Use a shade in a cream formula that mimics your natural flush. The trick to applying: don't swipe the color on directly. Instead apply to the back of your hand to warm the lipstick, then tap with your finger onto the apple of your cheeks and blend.
