So, you look like a doll when in a wedding, at a friend’s party or any occasion, and you stand out from the crowd. Reason: the kind of makeup that turns you into looking much better. But how about looking beautiful every day, in office, while at home, in the market or simply chilling with friends?
Here are ways in which you can look beautiful, irrespective of the occasion, all the time, without makeup, and without any over-the-top expenses. There are some things which you must do every day, so that beauty becomes more of a habit than a conscious effort! Read on:
Make yourself look attractive, no matter what your age, with these guidelines:
A clean face – The CTM regimen
Cleansing, toning, moisturizing - are the three important steps towards looking beautiful every day. It is advisable to clean your face with a gentle face wash thrice every day. Toning is essential to close the pores of your skin and prevent them from catching dirt, while moisturizing is essential to keep the skin soft and supple and prevent it from developing fine lines and wrinkles.
Choose a moisturizer, preferably, with an SPF, so as to protect you even from the sun. Moreover, you need to keep your body moisturized, by using some natural moisturizing oil like coconut oil.
Naturally beautiful eyes
Remember the phrase, “beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder”? Modify this a bit, as “beauty lies in the beautiful eyes of the beholder”. Now let your eyes speak a thousand words. Use a kajal pencil to highlight the under-eye part and transparent mascara to provide a natural look and curls to those shapely lashes. The highlighting of eyes adds the much needed spark to your face. For those women who do not like wearing black mascara, can also try curling eyelashes to make their eyes look bigger.
Soft, pink and healthy lips
Say no to lipsticks and let your lips breathe good health naturally. How? Very simple. Honey is a very good way of restoring softness and suppleness of your lips and regular application even ensures that the pinkness of your lips is maintained.
Simply apply Honey on your lips whenever you are free, and it will be absorbed into your lips, if they are chapped and dry. But make sure you don’t eat all of it! Honey is a natural lip gloss that must be with you wherever you go.
Clean and shapely eyebrows
Neat, clean and shapely eyebrows can add beauty to your face. In fact, eyebrows go a long way in defining and complimenting your face cut and looks. Not everybody looks good with the same eyebrow shape and the perfect eyebrow shape exclusively depends on the shape of your face, and the shape and size of your eyes. Always ask the opinion of the lady who shapes your eyebrows and ensure that not too many hands work on your eyebrows as that may keep altering the shape.
Unwanted facial hair
Now, you don’t want a moustache to be seen developing on your upper lips, or too many hairs on your forehead. And if this happens, you know it’s time to get these small hairs out, by way of threading or waxing. For looking beautiful every day, you must care to visit the parlour on time. Moreover, do not wax your cheeks and side locks as this can spoil the beauty of your face by taking away its natural sheen, because once you start, you would have to keep waxing each time there is new growth, and this can be harsh on the skin.
You are simply going out to meet friends or just catch up with your relatives. But even though the occasion may not demand over-the-top make up, you can create an impression, everyday, by pairing up your daily attire with accessories including funky necklaces, ethnic earrings, delicate bracelets and smart anklets. C’mon, didn’t you not turn around to look at that funky bag that girl was wearing with her plain skirt the other day? Accessories polish up your look.
Smelling good is as important as looking good! A young fragrance makes you seem much younger than you really are. Certain girly scents, a study showed, made women appear, on average, 6 years younger than their actual age. Who wants to be a loner in the company of friends, just because of stinky armpits and sweaty body odour? The vibe a deodorant creates when you meet someone, is refreshing and makes you appear well groomed.
Wear a cute up ‘do!
Shampoo your hair, condition them and keep them clean. Experiment with your hair; get a new hair cut, if you haven’t got it for long. Don’t be afraid to try new styles, including French braids, a high ponytail, a loose bun, a half clip, and anything that suits your attire and flatters your face cut.
If you have long hair brush your tresses and tie it up in a bun or just leave your hair loose. You don’t have to iron your hair every single day, to look beautiful, simply experiment with different styles, wear large funky bands and you are set to look beautiful daily!
Clean your nails
Clean, them shape them, paint them. But don’t keep them dirty at all as that is an instant put off. Clean and polished nails talk a lot about your personal hygiene. For your feet, when you are taking your bath, soak your feet in warm water, and gently exfoliate dead skin with a pumice stone. Follow up by moisturizing your feet with a natural foot oil or foot lotion. This way you can ensure your feet stay beautiful, everyday.
Pick your figure flattering outfits. Whether, you are shaped like an hourglass or a peach, pick out the best outfits that will flatter your figure. Start wearing clothes that flatter your body’s shape and you will end up looking very pretty and attractive. Dress appropriate to the occasion. It does make a difference!
Sip on lots of water
This is one of the most important ways by which you can keep your skin glowing all the time. A lack of water means a dry, dull and lifeless face. Immediately on one sight, your face can reveal whether it is well hydrated or not. Make it a point to remind yourself to sip water regularly.
All in all, have healthy food and exercise daily, along with these beautiful tips, and trust me, you would really look very beautiful each day of your life!
