According to Cindy Barshop, owner of Completely Bare spas in New York, excessivexcess and continual shaving or waxing can cause hyperpigmentationrpigmentati in the armpits. Your skin can also look darker due to armpit-pit-hair shadowinshadowing. If you use underarm deodorant, go for the ones thatat also work to lighten yyour underarms for an even skin tone all over. If you’reou’re not a deodorant user, BBarshop recommends a hair-inhibitor cream to reduce the growth rate betweebetween shaves or waxes. Or use hair-removal creams that are gentle on the skin as well as help skin stay hair-free longer compared to shaving. CaCarmindy, the make-up artist from TV shshow What Not To Wear, explains how to do this: First, close your eyes and visualise your face, concentrating on your favourite feature. Then, take a glance in the mirror and see which feature stands out. Or ask friends what they think it is. Once you’ve pinpointed your best feature, enhance with these expert tips.
For bigger eyes, make-up guru Taylor-Chang Babaian recommends the smoky eye look.
Brighter or darker colours enhance lips, says make-up artist Rachel Devine.
Apply a highlighter down the bridge of your nose so it appears straight, suggests make-up artist Sarah Jagger. CHEEKBONES Use sheer blush tones. Make-up artist Nick Barose recommends matte formulas. EYEBROWS To find your natural arch, here’s a tip from brow specialist Kristie Streicher: Hold a pencil straight next to the outer edge of your iris. Your arch is where the pencil hits your brow. Sweep outwards a nude eyeshadow under your arch. Dermatologist Jeffrey Benabio says premature greying ng could be due to genes, a vitamin B-12 deficiency, or complications with your pituitary or thyroid gland. Build-up of f hydrogen peroxide is another reason. Hydrogen peroxide is usually broken down by body enzymes to create water and oxygen. When this fails to happen, free radicals are formed, leadingeading to weaker hair and premature greying. To counter this, eat food with antioxidants like vitamins C and E, flavonoids and polyphenols. ls.
