It’s great to work on our inner self, spirituality and well-being. Healthy eating and training are already a must, but what about beauty? A nice body will take you far as well as the way you dress, but what about the details that can make or break your entire elegant look?
Stepping up a notch in the beauty department should therefore also be part of your transformation. There is always room for improvement!
Here are 5 things you can start working on…
1. Improve our eyebrows
You can’t get perfect eyebrows by painting them on your face. 3D eyebrows á la Instagram are not classy because they end up looking too much.
You should aim to have beautiful eyebrows that don’t need any makeup on them!
The strategy? Careful grooming, coloring, threading and microblading if necessary. Preferably in consultation with a professional if the budget approves. Otherwise, I still believe you can create miracles in your spa at home, if you’re careful, have good taste and stay attentive to the details. Try watching some tutorials online too.
2. Embrace natural eyelashes
I have not taken a break from my eyelash extensions for years, and I know other abusers of extensions and fake lashes because there are many of us! It’s so easy to get hooked on the full, glamorous look. That’s the case for me! I don’t even remember what my natural eyes look like.
I see more and more elegant ladies who go for au natural eyes, and it looks so good!
I think it’s important to embrace what we have naturally. Oftentimes, it looks just as good but it will require good eyebrows and skin to complete the look.
3. Learn some new makeup techniques
Not everything has to be plain and natural to be classy. Makeup is fun when it’s done tastefully, and for evenings it’s exciting to experiment with different looks. But it’s hard to do so unless you’re a beauty blogger or a pro. Us ordinary ladies have a routine or two we do over and over again, with a change of lipstick color when we want to spice it up a bit. Boring, right?
The truth is, it’s hard to give yourself a new look when you don’t know how to apply it or where to start.
Watching some Youtube videos on this topic or getting help from a pro is best! We’re spoiled by having everything we need to know available to us online. The only investment required is a little bit of time. The rest is up to practice!
4. Get better hair
Did you know that you need to use brushes that are compatible with your hair type? I never knew my fine hair should have a very soft and gentle brush in order not to break the strands. But there are so many things to think about if you want to get healthy and shiny hair!
Daily brushing, especially on wet hair, is so damaging. It should always be done delicately and with softer brushes.
Also, cutting down on coloring, blow dries, and using heat in general will help a lot. There really are many classy haircuts and hairstyles for ladies out there.
Don’t add a lot of stress to your hair, protect it from anything that may hurt it so it will stay in great shape as long as possible. If you start now, your future self will have loads to thank you for!
5. Get flawless skin
We’re not getting any younger and the time is NOW to think of the future of your skin.
Sleep, diet and hydration will help your skin tremendously. When you live a stress-free healthy lifestyle, you give a chance for the skin cells to regenerate optimally. People who adopt a plant-based diet see positive changes in their skin. They look younger! Try improving your lifestyle and attempt to better your life in general.
We prefer to invest loads of money on treatments and creams that we’re not even sure works, but we ignore the pure basics.
We ignore everything that has got a direct connection to our skin. We think targeting it from outside will work better than curing the root of the problem. The irony in this is that the treatments won’t do the job, but the basics will!
We must become healthier! I will post more and more about healthy living because it’s so connected to our beauty and well-being! You can’t be an elegant lady if you live like a slob! It’s not classy or elegant.
Beauty is what us females are blessed with, and there is so much we can do with it.
Anyone can become beautiful when they take care of what they’ve got. Anyone can improve their looks with good taste
