No one’s saying that you have to wear makeup in order to feel good about yourself. The most important thing about our appearances is that we do what makes us feel comfortable – and if going bare faced does that for you, then that’s fantastic. But there are many people who are struggling to find a look that suits them and that makes them feel confident – which means that it’s time to talk to the experts.
Go to your local beauty counter and talk to them about what colors would suit you and which makeup would work with your skin type. If you don’t feel confident about makeup then why don’t you try out BB cream, which is a combination of a moisturizer and foundation?
If you’ve recently had a baby or you feel self conscious about your weight then the best way to quickly boost your confidence in your appearance is through accessorizing. After all, if you’re losing or gaining weight then your feet will stay the same size, right? So you can always splash out on shoes. Make sure that you go for quality and for shoes that fit you well and don’t feel uncomfortable – after all, what’s the point in a pair of heels that stop you dancing all night? You could also go for a piece of statement jewelry which will draw people’s eyes away from your body, or a handbag that you can carry around everywhere with you. Just make sure that it isn’t too huge – it’s very tempting to carry around all of your possessions with you!
Everyone says that the best way to have a beautiful face is to have a beautiful heart, and it’s all about what lies beneath. So it makes sense that the best way to have beautiful clothes is to have beautifully fitting underwear. Women’s lingerie can be a minefield – there are so many choices that you might not know what to go for. The first step is to get a bra fitted by a professional. There’s no way that you can just guess your size yourself – a lot of women wear the wrong size bra and you’ll be amazed at how good you look when you’re wearing a bra that finally fits you. Four boob syndrome (when your breast overspills your bra cup) will become a thing of the past.
One way to always stay in fashion is to steer away from current trends. Sure, they might look good on the runways and on models in the pages of Vogue – but that doesn’t mean that they translate well to real life or to women with everyday figures. They also tend to fall out of fashion way too quickly – so it’s a good idea to splash your cash on styles that are going to stick around for a long time, made by good quality brands. Of course there’s nothing wrong with a little disposable fashion from time to time – it’s cheap and cheerful and it will definitely cheer you up! But for big purchases, classic is always best.
