Simple Tricks to Make Your Lips Look Perfect
Trick # 1
Lips are delicate and the skin on the lips is sensitive. So sensitive that smoking can darken it and the sun can damage it. So, make sure you use a lip balm that has a high SPF, especially if you are a smoker. The sunscreen will reduce the dehydrating impact of the cigarette and protect the lips from the harmful UV rays as well. More so, it will also help avoid discoloration as well.
Trick # 2
Make sure that you exfoliate your lips on a regular basis. Mild scrubbing with a toothbrush in a circular motion will do the trick. It will remove all the dead cells and soften the lips as well. However, always remember to moisturize your lips well after you exfoliate them. Else they will get more dehydrated than before. Weekly exfoliation should be enough, however, the time gap can be flexible as per convenience and requirement.
Trick # 3
Scrubbing the lips, lightly, with rose water and sugar also works well. Not only does it soften the lips but it also gives them a very sweet aftertaste. More so, using this method will avoid any chances of you scratching your lips. Chances of them drying are also relatively less with this method. This method of exfoliation can be used everyday as it uses sugar and rose water which are harmless for the lips.
Trick # 4
Drink plenty of water. The first body part to show the effects of dehydration are your lips. Drinking enough water in the day will make sure that your lips don’t look dry, rough or chapped. More so, every time you feel your lips getting a little dry, drink water. This will moisten them instantly. More so, drinking enough water helps make the skin glow as well, giving your face a healthy and picture-perfect look.

Trick # 5
Always use a lip balm before you put on lipstick. Not only will this make the lipstick look fresh all day, but it will also protect your lips from any chemical damage that the lipstick may cause. Apply a decently thick layer of lip balm as it gets absorbed and makes the lips look fuller. Lip balm is perfect to make sure that the lips look full and the lipstick gets applied better and doesn’t crack in the course of the day.

Tips for Short Women with Jeans

A woman’s wardrobe can’t be complete without a pair of jeans. No matter whether you are a 6 feet tall girl or you fall in the category of petite women, this is a must have clothing for all. However, buying jeans has always been a tricky task for short women, due to the tough task of finding the right piece for their height and body. There are actually a few things mentioned below, which you need to consider while shopping for jeans for short women.

Which Style to Pick?
Jeans with straight legs are one of the best picks for petite women. These give a vertical look to the legs that help women look leaner and taller. Make sure, you go for the right length.
If you are thin or medium-sized, skinny jeans are the right choice for you. These will instantly give you a taller appearance.
A slight boot cut is another great idea. This is the perfect style for those who are short and have a triangle or an hourglass shaped figure. Remember, a slight boot cut!
Wide leg styles can be opted for by those who have a fuller figure. The wide leg trouser style will give a proportionate look to your figure. You must avoid the slim cut.
The women with smaller hips can go for the low-rise jeans with a straight leg or a slight boot cut.
Styles that You Should Not Opt For
Short women with fuller figures must avoid low-rise jeans. Worn with a belt these make your hips look larger and legs shorter.
Large flares or full bell-bottoms are a strict no-no.
Don’t go for those baggy carpenter jeans, stick to the fitting pair.
Don’t go for a longer length to make yourself look taller. This will not help. Remember that your jeans must just skim the top of your shoes, so as to increase your visible height.
Never cuff the jeans at the bottom. This is a common style available in the capris, but stay away from this fashion. A cuff will cut off your height.
Consider a Hem Job

One important thing you need to remember is to shop by the hip size and not by the waist size. A right fitting jeans is one that fits perfectly at the hips. If it’s loose at waist, just get it altered. Also, you must go for long jeans that fit perfectly at your waist and hips and then you can get the height altered for the right fit. You can find a skinny jeans in the regular section, instead of the petite clothing section which has lesser options. Get its height shortened, according to your requirement. Also, if a pair of jeans is fitting perfectly up to your knees, get the lower leg part altered.
