We all want to look and feel good about ourselves. But it can be difficult knowing where to start. Do you start with your hair, makeup, or wardrobe? Follow our simple steps to a flawless and glamorous look that a supermodel would be proud of.
Our hair and skin can be a good indicator of our overall health. People with shiny hair and glowing skin look healthy and radiant. It may not always be the case, but it usually is. So the best place to start is by maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This takes time and effort.
- Drink enough water each day
- Eat a healthy and balanced diet
- Exercise regularly
- Reduce stress
- Ensure you get enough sleep each night
- Quit smoking
- Cut your alcohol intake
All of these are important if you want to want to look and feel good about yourself. Beauty starts with good health.
Our hair is one of the first things that people notice about us. It’s, therefore, important that you look after it. Shampoo and condition regularly, using products that suit your hair type. Treat yourself to a conditioning treatment every so often. This will penetrate into your hair shaft, leaving it soft and glossy.
Visit the hairdresser regularly, even if it’s just for a trim. This will keep split ends at bay and will make your hair look healthy and manageable. Experiment with different styles. If your hair is long, alternate between wearing it up and down.
Makeup can transform your appearance instantly. A good foundation will make all the difference, even out your skin tone, and cover imperfections. The choice is, therefore, important. Spend some time finding a foundation that complements your colouring.
Maximise your eyes by using false lashes. Look for a brand like House of eyelashes that uses human hair for a flattering look. Choose a style that suits and enhances your features.
Contouring will allow you to make the most of your best features. Learn how to do this to present your best self.
Choose lipsticks that work well with your skin tone. But don’t always play it safe. Be daring and experiment a little too.
It’s not about having all the latest clothes and following the latest fads and trends. It’s about discovering what works for you and building on that. Think style, rather than fashion. Cultivate a look that works for you.
Before buying new clothes, go through your wardrobe and take a good look at your existing outfits. Are there items that can be mixed and matched? Are there outfits you’re not going to wear again? Have a good sort out so you know where there are any gaps.
When buying new clothes, don’t settle for cheap mass-production items. This may save you money in the short term, but they are unlikely to last. Instead, opt for well-made garments that will stand the test of time. Look for clothes that have a good cut and will fit you well. Clothes should flatter or enhance. Style your outfits by season.
Looking effortlessly stylish isn’t really effortless. It takes time and energy. And it’s not about fashion and latest fads. Looking and feeling good starts with health. And from there, it’s about knowing yourself and what works for you.
