The 5 ‘T’ Top Beauty Tips and Tricks All Woman Need To know according to Pretties and Pearls..

1.Tanning Tip

If you know this tip already you’ll think I’m mad but you’d be surprised..Before you set yourself up to tan , after your shower and shave you must moisturize your body head to toe. You do this to hydrate your skin but also to prevent your tan sticking deep into your pores causing that black spotty effect.


2. Troublesome Tights

A great beauty tip is to spray your tights in a light layer of hairspray before you head out the door. This causes the fibers in your tights to stick together to prevent snags, ladders and rips to your tights.

3.  Thankful Tissue

As old as the idea to always have a tissue in your handbag is it’s still relevant and necessary. Been to lunch and no napkin? Lost the back of your ear-ring and need to safely store the rest? Sticky sweet situation? Any part of your makeup no longer on fleek? and most importantly lending a tissue to a girl in need. Tissue thankfuls are endless! Just leave one in your bag ladies, you never know.

4. Toenail Tell Tales.

A lot of us woman forget our toenails are just as important as our perfectly shaped and shellac fingernails. After all we walk on our feet all day and cram them into those ridiculous heels that quiet frankly hurt like hell! Don’t for get to pamper those piggies! A couple of ideas are to steep your feet while watching a movie. Massage your feet before bed for 5 minutes, apply Burt’s Bee’s foot wax on your feet and sleep with socks on top. A monthly pedicure or simply paint your pretty toes.


5. Teeth.

A smile is every woman’s curve.Teeth whitening has gone very big in the last few years. We’re all using teeth whitening strips and kits at home and looking for the best whitening effect toothpaste so we can have that so sought after Hollywood Smile. here are some handy tips for whiter teeth, use enough but not TOO much Fluoride .Brush twice a day and floss.
