More beauty tricks from Woman's Day Magazine

Hi lovely ladies,
Here are more of the beauty tips from Woman's Day......more tips tomorrow.

                Pretty face            

  • Don't touch your face unnecessarily.  Breakouts can be caused by your own fingers.  Nov 1963
  • Apply cream or cleanser by lightly pressing upward-never down.  The delicate skin sags easily enough in time.  April 1942
  • For the best color match, test foundation and powder either on your face or neck (the inside of your wrist is too pale).  May 1990
  • Use foundation, not concealer (which is lighter than your skin color), to cover up redness or blemishes.  February 1998
  • Rouge should be well-blended far out on the cheekbone;  circles of rouge don't look good on anyone.  February 1938  (I remember when blush was called rouge!)
  • Before applying powder, gently blow the excess off your brush to prevent flaking.  Feb 1998
  • Never squeeze a pimple.  You may damage tissue and cause a tiny scar or pit.  April 1968
  • Freshen makeup by pressing a tissue on oily areas of the face-forehead, nose, chin.  Then smooth on a thin layer of pressed powder with a brush.  May 1990
  • Concentrate blush on the apple of cheeks,  the part that puffs out when you smile.  Nov 1976
  • For special occasions, apply your makeup earlier in the day and touch it up before you leave.  It will look more natural, and you'll be less rushed when it comes time to get ready.  May 1998
  • Powder is the only makeup applied with a downward motion-you do this to smooth down facial hairs.  October 1964
  • To stop makeup from fading during the day, apply a primer before your foundation.  April 2010
            Lovely Lips     

  • Get lips soft and smooth by using a damp, warm washcloth at night to rub off the flaky dry bits; follow with a coat of lip balm.  September 1998
  • Ease the evening switch to a redder or darker lipstick by applying it over and blending it into your daytime color.  April 1992
  • To make lipstick last longer, allow it to set for a few minutes after applying, blot lips with tissue and dust them with powder, then apply another coat.  April 1963
  • Cheeks feeling flushed?  Put on a bold lipstick;  a neutral shade will only make red cheeks stand out.  April 1969
  • For lipliner that glides on, warm it up first by pinching it with your fingertips.  February 1998
  • To keep lipstick from bleeding, pat a little concealer around your lips.  October 2011
  • Smile when you put on your lipstick-it's the best way to ensure complete coverage, corners included.  June 1998
          Glowing Skin

  • The best time to apply lotion is right after a shower or bath, when skin is still damp.   Jan 2006
  • When drawing a bath, scatter bubbles or crystals directly under the faucet before turning on the water, but drop in perfume oil while the tub is filling.  November 1959  (sounds so nice!)
  • Beautiful skin starts from within.   Include lots of vegetables, fruit and water in your diet.  September 1961  
  • Overdo it with your perfume?  Dab rubbing alcohol with a cotton ball on your skin.  The alcohol will cut the scent without altering it.  September 1992  (this is a good one!)
  • Microwave lotion for 5 seconds to soothe dry winter skin.  February 2009
  • The higher the sun, the more potent the ultraviolet rays.  You're most likely to get sunburned between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.  June 1959
  • Help perfume last longer by dabbing petroleum jelly onto pulse points before spraying on fragrance.  (perfume evaporates faster from dry skin.)  And don't forget to spritz ankles and behind your knees-scent rises.  April 1992
  • Exfoliate with a body scrub once a week to slough off dead cells that make skin look dull.  When skin is freshly exfoliated, lotion and oil are better absorbed.  March 2011  (I am going to start doing this-important for the summer)
