Tip for the Day: 5 Beauty Tips Every Women Should Know!

I am not an actress, a model, a beauty queen, or a SOMEBODY. I am a NOBODY, and I am proud of it! That is why I think a nobody like me, can write something about tips and feeling good about oneself, as I've been through those "ugly moments" "duh" moments everyday of my life since I was born! hehehe (a li'l bit of exaggeration going on here, but you guys understand).

There are some girls who aren't pretty/beautiful but there's something in them, that we want to know why she looks so damn hot! The X-factor!

Beauty tip # 1 Never underestimate the power of your make-up tools

As you can see, I didn't put make-up as the most important beauty tip as this is already a given FACT everybody knows! :P But to some of us who spends a lot on cosmetic products, we should know that make-up tools are equally as important as make-up.

Brushes are getting famous nowadays, and brushes aren't created differently just to confuse consumers. Different brushes have different purpose and using the tools correctly would make our make-up application stress free and more beautiful.

A tip, if you dip a brush in shadow or blush and the color falls off before you make it to your face, that's a bad brush.

Beauty Tip #2 Never underestimate the power of body lotions/creams

No matter what type of skin, or in what age level you are, your body needs the added moisture especially after we take a shower/bath. We moisturize our faces and I believe our body needed the same attention. Just make sure to use the correct type of moisturizers for each skin type and needs.

I moisturize my body every morning and during nighttime (before I go to bed). I've been doing that for more than 5 years now and I'm seeing the results as I grow older. Friends tell me I've got soft skin and my hubby loves to touch my skin! That, enough said , is already a PLUS!

Beauty Tip #3 Never underestimate the power of sunscreen

Aside from reducing the risk of skin cancer, sunscreen is the BEST anti-aging product. The reason for this is that sunscreen blocks the harmful and damaging rays of the sun, thus can block it's speedy-aging effects. (wrinkles, age spots, fine lines)

Beauty Tip #4 Never underestimate the power of your hair

A healthy shiny hair attracts both male and female, we all know that. But a good haircut can also be a powerful secret to be beautiful!

Update your "do" at least once every 2 years. If you see your high school friends and they say "You look exactly the same" --- run to your nearest salon to have your hair updated! A nice, updated cut that frames your face can make a person look 10x more beautiful!!!

Beauty Tip #5 Never underestimate the power of smiling

I almost wanted to kill myself when I was in those teeny-bobby years when your confidence level is way down the drain and you have your relatives tell you "Your sister is more beautiful than you are, but you've got a better smile!" For me, it was like saying "you're ugly" in a nice way. But you know what? This SMILE is my secret tool for being unique and beautiful! (well it's not a secret no more!)

I was traveling alone and I was on my way back to Manila, the plane just landed and I stood up to get my stuff. This really nice lady in her late 40s smiled at me and said: "Keep smiling, I really love the way you smile, makes me happy". I was surprised! And you know what? I made a stranger happy! I felt like a million bucks richer!!! So start the smiling people!

Keep smilin'
Stay happy!
