There is so much pressure from the media and society to look fabulous in this day and age. Self-esteem is at an all-time low, and more and more people are having anxiety about how they look, and worrying they cannot keep up with the latest fashion trends. Thankfully some help is on hand. I’m a fashion writer and have some great tips for how you can boost your appearance and confidence. These 5 easy steps are a sure fire win for helping you battle with any issues about how you look, and what you need to know.
A great building is always built on a solid foundation, and this is the case for a new look. Use a quality foundation that’s around 1 shade darker than your skin tone to get an even complexion and cover any small blemishes and freckles. Foundation should always be put on top of moisturised skin. Apply some makeup around your eyes and some blusher but don’t go over the top. You want to stay relatively natural looking so avoid liquid eyeliners, heavy lipsticks and unnatural eye shadows. Use nude colours then accentuate your femininity.
Hair design can change the way you look by a massive extent. Everyone sees your hair every day, so it’s important to have it looking great. Dye your hair a stronger colour of what you are naturally. For example if you have brown hair, go darker but stay brown, if you are blonde then go lighter. Have a professional cut too. This doesn’t mean going to your local hairdresser for the once over. Go to a well-known place and spend a bit of money to get your perfect look, it’ll be a sound investment and be much easier to maintain on a long term basis.
The clothes you wear are obviously important too, and it’s hard to tell you what to wear on a general basis. The rule of thumb is to follow the season colour trends. It’s ok in this day and age to be confident wearing bright colours in the summer and darker shades of grey and purple in the winter. You don’t need to be revealing but you should dress femininely around your best features. If you are unconfident about your facial features then fashion is a great way of moving the attention. If you are uncomfortable with your body then don’t go too mad on your look but work on having your face look the best.
Stunning Designer Glasses
Wearing designer glasses or sunglasses are a quick and cheap way of changing your look completely. Different frames literally frame your eyes and can transform a look. The glasses also add individuality to your look and provide you a comfort piece to ‘hide behind’ if you struggle with confidence. Designer prescription glasses are a great way of improving your eye health and adding some style to your look, so an easy win for anyone. Designer glasses such as Ray Bans will always be in fashion so a great place to start.
This area is often overlooked, but having a good posture can give you presence and change the way people perceive you. Slouching gives off a very masculine appearance, but sitting upright and proud in a feminine manner can show off your features and make you look more confident. You can train your posture to help you sit more upright, and in the long term this will benefit your look and your health.
