Looking to lighten your complexion? Every shade of skin is beautiful, but as we grow older our skin tone can change. Freckles may appear, dark spots can arise, and skin may not be as light as it once was. So, if you're still not ready to embrace your dark side, read on for a few natural whitening tips and tricks.
Use SunblockOne of the easiest ways to stay fair is to use sunblock on a daily basis. Find a moisturizer that includes an SPF of 15 or higher and use it every morning after washing your face. Sunblock not only prevents your skin from getting darker, but also blocks harmful UV rays that can cause cancer and premature aging. Remember your hands when applying sunblock, as they are a prime area for age spots.
ExfoliateExfoliating once a week will remove dead skin cells to lighten and brighten your skin. Mix two tablespoons oatmeal and two tablespoons brown sugar with a quarter cup of milk, and stir until a paste forms. Gently scrub your face, rinse, and moisturize.
Make a MaskA homemade mask is a great way to lighten your skin and a good excuse to kick back on the couch. Try using one once a week. Use one tablespoon of each of the following: sandalwood paste, lemon juice, tomato juice, and cucumber juice. Mix them all together to form a paste. Spread the mixture on your face and wait until it dries. Rinse and moisturize for a natural glow.
Licorice ExtractLicorice extract contains glabridin, a component that acts as a natural skin whitener. Apply a thin layer of the extract morning and evening, after you wash your face and before you moisturize. Licorice extract can be found at any health food store or ordered online. Be sure to store the bottle in a cool, dark place to maintain freshness. Note: test a small amount on the back of your arm before using on your face to be sure you do not have an allergic reaction.
Remember to love your skin no matter what color it is. It's a part of who you are and that's what makes you beautiful and unique
To me, this is the prettiest bronzer ever – it looks like a real, from-the-beach tan.
Using a big, soft powder brush, sweep it wherever the sun hits your face naturally: across your temples, cheekbones and browbones, and down the bridge of your nose.

Start with moisturized lips. But don’t pile on a lot of product.
A liner is essential. If you don’t want a bold effect, use a nude shade. The line will keep lipstick from running.
Apply a layer of lipstick.
Blot on a tissue. This will help set the lipstick, and sort of acts as a stain. Resist the urge to press lips together here.
Apply a second coat. Again, do not press lips together. This is the fastest way to remove the color you’re trying to make stay put.Give these steps a try and report back!Lots of love,Loren
The reviews have been pouring in since the event, and it's official -- beauty editors, beauty bloggers, and industry experts absolutely love the line! The latest and greatest review comes via Beauty and the Feast, a popular beauty and lifestyle blog by Marie Claire editor, Shyema Azam.Here's an excerpt from Shyema's blog rave:
"So, I have to admit, when I walked in the place, I automatically assumed this would be another fancy makeup line that no one can afford and I’d really have to dig to find “what’s different.” But the price range is a refreshing $12-$25.And here’s my favorite part — they were making customized foundation right at the event. I was watching the other girls get it done and it was looking really, really good. I was on my way out, but after seeing that I sat to get mine done."Is this great or what!? I'm overjoyed that the Motives "secret" is finally out! For more photos of the fabulous Muse event, check out flick'r.com!
Since taking office, Michelle Obama’s every fashion choice has been documented and, in a lot of instances, copied. But I actually think her beauty picks have been just as inspiring. Mrs. Obama isn’t afraid to experiment—check out the great eye shadow pairing she’s wearing in this picture! But, as any risk taker can attest, making an experiment work is just as much about knowing when to play it safe. Here, a step-by-step guide to making the First Lady’s glowing, glamorous look your own.
Start with Motives Liquid Powder Mineral Foundation in the correct shade for your skin type. Brush on lightly and be sure to blend evenly. I always use my finger around the nose and along the jaw line, where it’s easy for smudges to form. Let the foundation sink in for a few minutes for a nice dewy effect.
Highlight those cheekbones! Nothing works better than a smile when you’re applying blush. So using Motives Pressed Blush in Runway and a grin dust on a thin layer at an upward angle along your cheeks, concentrating a majority of the color directly below the middle of your eye. Blending is key; you don’t want any defined strokes, or, even worse, circles!
Use Motives Pressed Eye Shadow in Pink Diamond, to draw attention to your strong brow line, while opening up the eye. Then apply a darker-but-complementary shade, like Motives Pressed Eye Shadow in Midnight, along your upper eyelid. You want to be pretty heavy handed with the application directly along the lid, and then use a brush to blend up and away from the corner of your eye. You should stop just as the darker shade begins to touch the lighter on the outside.
Apply a thick line of Motives Kohl Eyeliner in Amethyst along the upper lid, but leave the bottom unlined. This is one of those places where you can take a risk with your color selection, but balance that risk by only lining one part of your eye.
Finally, pick a nude-but-not-matte shade for your lips, like Motives Rich Color Lipstick in Pink Sand. You want them to take a back burner to the drama of your eyes.

About Henry Roth
Judging your coloring: People are unique, they do not all come in one size or color. Even though through artistry you can complement, blend, define or contrast the appearance of things there are limits to this. This is why some colors look , actually, awful on you yet good on someone else. You will want to examine the whole picture to choose any cosmetic wisely. You will want to consider your hair, your skin, your eyes and the whiteness of your teeth, especially when you want to choose lip colors.
Darker colors in lip makeup: Dark lip colors typically work well if you have dark hair, dark eyes or fair to medium skin, if you want a generalized analysis, and not be so flattering on the dark skin tones. Too much of one thing is what happens here.
If you have dark skin you should probably stay away from dark lipsticks. Most people have skin that is either medium, fair or light colored and can use dark lipsticks fine.
Dark lip colors are great for whitening teeth and aside of punk shades like black, many people can use a pretty shade of dark lip color to do this. If you are a very deep complected person and would love to use dark lip color, choose lip gloss, this reflective light takes away from the darkness and adds some light which will be more flattering for you. People with light palettes from their hair to their eyes sometimes have a difficulty wearing the darkest shades, too. A person with fair or ivory skin, light blue, green or tan eyes, and light blond or red hair may have to line their eyes heavily to pull off a dark shade of lip makeup. A better idea could be to use dark gloss instead just like the dark skinned person, the reflective light helps you pull off the look.
Pale Easter Shades? Sweet confectionery colors or "Easter Shades" in lipstick or pencil can be tricky to use. They often create the problem of creating for the wearer a ghost like appearance. Also, these shades can easily make anyone who hasn't just went through three boxes of Crest White strips have yellowed looking teeth.
What helps is looking for light colors with a yellow low light like pale coral, tangerine or champagne. You may be surprised as well that these shades create a pink or beige appearance once you apply them. Another thing to investigate are the violets, orchids and lavenders. These colors contain blue which enhances the white in a person's teeth. These colors, in particular in pastel versions, go great in your lipstick pouch. In pastel versions, they substitute for pink lip gloss/stick and they also will perform another cosmetic trick. They make a great lip liner. If you look pretty unlikely in medium tones of lip color, other than browns, cocoas and beiges, a little lavender or orchid liner around your mouth can help you look great in these colors. This is more flattering than a darker tone of lip liner (the way you are supposed to do it). If you look good in these mid-range colors go ahead and line them in a darker version of a matching color. In your case the right way looks best.
What's good about lip liners? A lip liner is supposed to keep lip stick from bleeding, basically, and also it is supposed to enhance your mouth and lip color to an extra degree. A lot of women or especially younger girls bypass lip liner preferring to simply swipe color onto their mouth from a tube, pot or brush in a couple of quick movements to the mouth. They think it is too time consuming to bother with lip liners.
It is not so difficult, although to add some lip liner to your makeup routine if you want. And it will stretch out your color palette. Experimenting with different colors of lip liners will help you use up some of the wasted colors that you picked up somewhere that don't look good on you and make them usable by you. If you don't usually bother with lip liner, you could try lining lips for special occasions. Lip liners also are usually a matte color, this, just like dark colors or colors with blue undertones, has a tooth whitening effect.
Metallic Colors and glosses: Everyone can experiment with metallic colors and lip glosses. All people from fair to dark can use these to lend a polished glow to their look. From light applications to intense you can make these work for you. Metallic colors are light reflective much like glosses or any of the lip coatings with a shiny finish such as satin or liquid finish types. These can be used solo or as a top coat. Two neat tricks for metallic lip color use are to line you lips with the metallic and to dab a smidgen of the lip coat on the center of the lower lip. This is often just enough glitter effect. Metallic finishes look sexy, pretty and new if you use them wisely. A trend in metallic cosmetics is the best time for using them freely, however, otherwise you probably want to save this look for evening or beach wear. Glosses can be used anytime, are usually less expensive than lipstick, are as good for your lips as lip stick and often come in flavors, anywhere from root beer and chocolate to strawberry and mango.
The purchase: A nice beginning to your cosmetic bag would be a selection of lip stick and other lip colors that have one dark color, one light color, one gloss, one lip pencil and one metallic. This is quite a lot to buy at once, perhaps. So, narrow down to the shabby chic budget; a lip pencil, a gloss and one light or medium color. Remember to get your lip liner in a shade darker than your main light to medium color or in a pale orchid or lavender shade.
The gloss could simply be a personal tube of Vaseline or whatever appeals to you. You can add dark colors, metallics and other shades of pencil to your collection later. It is not that hard to choose a few lipsticks for your makeup bag. With a few pointers you will have just the right shade on hand instead of a useless clutter of items that you cannot enjoy.
