10 Overnight Beauty Hacks That Will Make You Prettier While You Sleep
By: Nada Manley, Beauty Mommy. I used to love makeover shows, but I was always slightly dejected when each episode was over. There was no miraculous makeover in the cards for me. There was no easy way for me to look better instantly. But was I really? And here they are. Nothing makes you look prettier and more approachable than a bright, healthy smile. As Charla Krupp once famously proclaimed, yellow teeth are aging!
Fortunately, they are so easy to fix! Another tip? Try cool, blue-based lipcolors cherry, raspberry, wine instead of warm tones coral to counteract the yellow in your teeth, or try a gloss designed to help your teeth look whiter. I am not saying that there is anything wrong with acrylic nails. Wait, yes, yes I am. I know this is controversial, but thick, long, squared-off nails are dated.
The trendiest talons now are delicate, whether short and delicate or longer and slightly almond-shaped at the tip. Classic red, coral or sheer pink nails are always chic. Your bag should be a beautiful, high-quality statement piece. It should not be boring, or frumpy, or dated. After all, you carry it every day, and a blah bag can bring down your whole outfit. A stiff bag with a faux exotic print embossed onto the leather looks so dated.
Avoid faux texture, tons of exterior pockets, and a boring shape in a boring color, like beige. For an investment piece, choose a black or camel bag in a strong, elegant shape with minimal detail and hardware.
High vamp shoes those that cover more of the top of your foot can be cool, or edgy, or funky, but they are rarely feminine or delicate. Furthermore, thin straps are prettier than thick straps, no matter what the Birkenstock wearers say. And while the new ugly shoes may, arguably, have a place in the wardrobe of a year-old hipster, after a certain age, they look like comfort shoes — the very antithesis of cute.
So skip the flatforms and shower slides, the Tevas and the Birkenstocks, and stick with classic but still comfortable options like thong sandals, ballet flats square toes or pointy toes are both trendy , or gladiators. Call me old-fashioned, but I like pretty. Yes, this is closely related to 4, but I feel so strongly about this that I decided to give it its own category. Flip flops should be flat. Ditch the styles with the thick black rubber platform soles and go for a classic pair of Havaianas.
There are so many options that are equally affordable and comfortable, yet far more stylish. Some women immediately cut their hair after having kids.
Have baby. Buy yoga pants. Chop hair off. But there is another way. You can have a baby. Wear cute clothes. Within reason. We all make trade-offs. So, so, so many women think they are bigger than they are. Or, if you are used to wearing your clothes a little too snug, try the next size up. It is the new classic, and should be an investment piece. I know you think your tired, stretched-out, old bra is fine. Unless you struggle to fill in an A-cup, you need some support.
The right bra will make absolutely everything you wear look a million times more expensive. You will look taller, slimmer, and chic-er. Your best pick? An ultra-hydrating color with a little bit of sheen in a mid-toned flattering color. Whether you prefer the subtlety of a lip stain or the pop of a bolder shade, make sure the color complements your skin tone and brightens your complexion. Prevent that from happening by regular rearview mirror checks. I find that the angle of the rearview mirror, combined with natural light, is the best place to pluck stray hairs as they arise and keep your brows neat and groomed.
Keep a pair of tweezers in your glove compartment and touch up your brows whenever you have a spare moment! But never, of course, while actually driving.
Trainers are trendy right now, and just the thing for long days of family travel or hiking around an amusement park. Make them count. Make them cute! Every day. Use an antioxidant-packed formula on the face, neck, chest, ears and back of the neck every morning, and a body lotion with SPF on extremities. In sunnier months, switch your regular hand cream for a moisturizing sunscreen.
Not a glamorous subject, but we all wash dishes, and all that soap and hot water and scrubbing can take its toll, and make hands look older. I keep a hand-lotion pump next to my kitchen sink, and apply a quick dab to the backs of hands before slipping on my girly dishwashing gloves. As a beauty writer, I have never had a shortage of skincare products on hand, but all that choice can be confusing, to you and to your skin.
You just need a few well-chosen ones that cover all of your bases. One way to do this is to pick your entire skincare routine from the same company, since the products are designed to work synergistically. And if you are just getting started, keep it simple: a gentle cleanser, an anti-aging cream with SPF for day, and an anti-aging cream for evening. After it becomes a habit, add more products as needed, like an eye cream or a mask. For more tips on choosing and using a skincare routine, check out my new book on the topic, filled with tips from the top skincare experts.
When it comes to treatments that can treat current wrinkles while preventing future ones, Botox tops the list. Get a recommendation from a trusted friend for a derm known for his minimalist approach. Just the tiniest bit will leave you line-free and relaxed-looking for months, and no one needs to know. So what are you waiting for? I personally love the way firming creams leave skin taut, glowing, and, well, firm. I am always on the hunt for the perfect all-purpose body cream, one that makes you firm and glowy, with just a hint of color.
You might not think you need to curl your lashes. You do. Trust me. Now I look back on those pre-lash-curling days and shudder. What a waste. The best curler is from Shu Uemura. A long time ago, I read that Sophia Loren used to smooth olive oil on her body to keep it soft and youthful, and much as I wanted her skin, I balked. Only a mild slightly tropical aroma that I love. I have been using coconut oil on my face, body and hair for several years now, and I am obsessed.
I use it to remove makeup, moisturize my dry legs, and calm the frizz in my hair. As promised, most of these 19 easy ways to look better instantly are small changes you can make today that will lead to a brighter, fresher, more stylish you tomorrow. Skip to content. Home New?
