With the holidays almost here, most of us are feeling exhausted, with little time to take care of ourselves. For me, taking a moment to take care of MYSELF is the key to making it through with a smile on my face and an effortless look (at least to those around me). We have turned to Beautypress for these tips and tricks to help find the BEST and most important beauty hacks of the holiday season.
Curls just wanna have fun!
Whether curly or straight – women are rarely 100% satisfied with what nature gave them. Luckily, everything is possible thanks to the technology. With a curling iron, even the smoothest hair will quickly become a wonderful curl, while a hair straightener can tame the wildest mane. No time for the curling iron? Just plait your hair and leave overnight for loose sexy morning waves!
Black, long, voluminous eyelashes are every woman’s dream. However, since the individual structure of the eyelashes can be very different, missing the perfect eye-impact often calls for extra help – cue eyelash curlers to the rescue! Briefly blast them with the hair dryer for an even longer lasting result. The combination of heat and pressing action allows almost all 250 individual hairs to be skilfully shaped. If you’re feeling lazy, you can now even buy heated models!
Small but mighty, tweezers have always been and remain an indispensable beauty tool for all women. They’re so handy that they fit into every tiny cosmetic bag and create the ideal conditions for the perfect eye look – and in the truest sense of the word: Only expressive and properly plucked eyebrows give the face that certain something and make your look pop! For those of us who aren’t yet pro-pluckers, there’s a variety of templates that guarantee the perfect result.
Dab and go
The desire for flawlessly beautiful skin is as old as humanity itself – and concealers are the miracle weapons of skin bruises. But that’s not all: The little helpers can also significantly extend the durability of eye shadow. So before you gloss on the glitter, dab a little concealer onto dark circles and over your eyelid to make for a long lasting look.
Cheat the aging
Forever young – who does not want to be? It is the nature of man to spend his life as long as possible and in the best of health. It is all the better if the signs of the time leave no or only a few traces behind. So if you want to delay the biological aging process, you should make vitamin C, retinol, collagen, coenzyme Q10, hyaluronic acid and caviar extract your best friends by mid-20s at the latest. The reason: The active ingredients put an end to dryness and wrinkles, prevent their new development and ensure a firmer, vital skin. In Germany alone, buyers are investing around € 486 million in their “cosmetic old-age provision”. And that doesn’t just go for the face – our hands are the second biggest telltale sign of growing older – investing in an anti-aging hand cream is the best way to stay covered this winter.
Power Pack Powder!
It’s amazing what powder can do. People who tend to have oily skin can, under no circumstances, do without it. But powder can do much more than provide a matte look – it also gives lipstick more durability. Simply apply your favorite lipstick as usual and press a single-layered tissue onto your lips. Then dab the powder over the covered lips with a brush – cue excess oil being absorbed and a longer lasting lip look!
In the dry
Shampoo from a can: What may seem superfluous to some people often proves to be a savior in need. After all, when we have less and less time for a full-on wash, condition and intensive care, the hair could still tolerate a little “freshen-up”, right? A dry shampoo not only cleanses the hair without the addition of water, but also gives the hairstyle some volume due to its fine powder particles. Simply spray dry shampoo into your hair let it dry briefly, towel it and the sexy lion’s mane is ready!
