Ladies, this is a big week for socializing. Most of us will attend a July 4th BBQ and perhaps a date night or two over the long weekend. Even if you’re not feeling your best right now, you can still look fabulous when out and about. I checked in with the girls at Makeup.com and found three easy and highly effective tips that can be executed with one hand if your in an arm cast. These tips also apply to leg cast beauties as well 🙂
1.Curl your lashes.
Draw attention to your lashes, not your cast, by using a lash curler. I have owned a Tweezerman lash curler for the past six years and it can work wonders to open up tired eyes. The thick silicone pads won’t crease your lashes either. For intense curling you can run a hair dryer over the silicone pads. Then apply your favorite mascara to finish the look. I’m currently using Maybelline Volum’ Express Rocket and love that it provides lots of lift without drying or clumping. 2. Groom your eyebrows. If you’re in a cast consider going to a professional for an eyebrow wax. Then use a clear brow gel at home to sculpt and keep hairs in check. I use this basic clear gel from Maybelline that can be applied to lashes or eyebrows. Applying a highlighter below the brow line will create an instant brow lift effect. I use Benefit’s Whatt’s Up on my brow bone and in the inner corners of my eyes.
3. Exfoliate for soft lips. To have soft, kissable lips use a lip scrub like this one from Sugar. Gently massage onto lips in a circular motion and wipe with a tissue. It buffs away dry flakes and nourishes the skin with oils. Your lips will be perfectly primed for lipstick or gloss.
These simple steps can really make a big impact on your appearance and your self esteem. Always put your best foot forward – even if it’s in a cast! For more ideas on creating fabulous eyes and lips while in a cast, check out our board on Pinterest.
