5 Things in your make-up bag that keep you looking younger

When it comes to looking younger there is no need to go under the knife.  Keeping it simple and enhancing your natural beauty can make a world of difference.   Here are a few simple items that will help to enhance your look and keep you looking younger.  5 things in your make-up bag that keep you looking younger :

1. Tweezers

Neglecting to redefine your brows is a big beauty blunder—it can make you look years older.  Well groomed brows create a better balance and more attractive proportion to the face.

 

 

2. Tinted Moisturizer

A light foundation with a sheer coverage is great for  dewy youthful finish. This moisturizing formula will hydrate, soften, and add a very healthy looking glow to the skin.

3. Eye Lash Curler

Eyelashes straighten and go  flat as you age, and you need to keep everything going upward, against gravity.  Curled lashes immediately make eyes pop.

4.  Creme Blush

Powder blushes can exaggerate fine lines by sitting on top of the skin surface.  Cream blushes will sink into the skin therefore giving you a dewy and youthful appearance.

 

 5. Light Colored to Nude Lips

Lips get thinner with age.  Creamier lipsticks or glosses tend to add moisture and shine.  The shade closest to your natural lip color and  a bit of lip gloss makes lips appear plumper.

 

Yes, these steps are simple!

Five Steps to Making a Great First Impression!

 

How do you want to be perceived by others?  Does  making a great  first impression affect your job,  goals, relationships  or your lifestyle? It only takes 3 seconds before they have sized you up and have formed an impression about you. It doesn’t seem fair, but unfortunately it happens everyday.

In very little time, the other person has formed an opinion about you based on your appearance, your body language, your demeanor, smile , and how you are dressed.

Five Steps to Making a Great First Impression:

1. Dress Appropriately

Dress appropriately. Of course physical appearance does matter. Remember, you are meeting this person for the first time and all this person has to go on  is what they see first! This doesn’t mean that you need to try to look like a super model but, be intentional about what you are wearing.   Be sure to think about what is appropriate for the situation at hand.  For example, color is the first thing you notice about a person, and as a first impression the strategic placement & choice of color of can be extremely powerful.   If you are not sure what to wear then you may need to hire a professional to help you get your look together for you.

If you dress and look like a winner – the world will treat you like one!   You may be preventing your advancement in your career or personal life by dressing inappropriately and giving the wrong signals.  Sometimes we just don’t know the basics and we don’t realize how a few simple changes can affect our entire life.  Changing your appearance will allow you to increase income, enhance your social life and achieve specific goals.  Do your homework on all of your prospects ( it’s helpful to know if a certain dress attire is offensive ).  Always be genuine and show your unique personality.

2Find your connection.

As you prepare for your initial meeting, come up with a few things to talk about as well as four generic questions that will get others talking.  Be the first to say, hello!  If you’re not sure the other person will remember you, offer your name to ease the pressure.  Take your time during introductions. Make an extra effort to remember names and use them frequently. Have something interesting to contribute. Keeping abreast of current events and culture will provide you with great conversation builders, leading with “What do you think of…?” Have you heard…?” What is your take on…?” Stay away from negative  talk or controversial subject matter, and refrain from long-winded stories or giving a lot of detail in casual conversation.  It’s ok to be a little witty too!

3. Smile

The is nothing like a smile to make a good first impression.  A warm friendly confident smile will put both you and the other person at ease.  So smiling is imperative to making a good first impression.  We are drawn to people who smile. There is an attraction factor. When someone is smiling they lighten up the room, change the moods of others, and make things happier. A smiling person brings happiness with them. Smile lots and you will draw people to you.

4.  Be Attentive and Courteous

Make eye contact. Stay focused on the person you are speaking with and certainly not on anything else to avoid them feeling unappreciated and unwanted.  Focus 100% on what is being said. When they have finished talking do not jump in immediately. Wait and process what has just been said to you. Then take some time to think carefully about what you want to say. And then you can talk!  Take the time to turn off your mobile phone. There is no better way to ruin a first impression than a cell phone going off in the middle of an in-depth conversation.

5.  Be Confident

Be confident and outgoing!  Try giving compliments to the person or people you want to talk to. By doing this you can start a good conversation.  When a person realizes someone has these easy going qualities, they find them easier to talk with and much more welcoming.  Proper posture is imperative.  Body language can tell someone a lot about your mood and confidence level.   Slouching with your head facing down only makes you look shy, scared and unsure of yourself. You don’t want that.  You must always stand straight and tall.  Look in a mirror and practice, practice, practice!  You’ll look  more confident and proud to be yourself.  Close on a good note to keep them wanting more…….Remember to be yourself!  Don’t pretend to be someone you’re not.

Make-up while working out!

 

Ok, I would like to think that I am not vain.  But, it does matter to me what I look like, no matter what I am doing.  You know what I’m talking about!  It’s time of year when everyone hits the gym.  It’s always better to go au natural when working out, but some women still insist on getting gussied up before hitting the gym.

If you don’t want to go out bare face to the gym, here are a few helpful tips to adopt to look good and feel more confident while working out:

*  Pull your hair back into a clean and simple ponytail, knot or braid.  Be sure to tame the fly aways. Try not use too much hair product, it seeps when you start to sweat.

*  Be sure to start with a clean face…. Use a cleanser specific to your skin type. Don’t forget to tone and moisturize too!

*  Avoid foundation…..try a tinted moisturizer or a mineral powder. They will allow your skin to breath while supplying a little color for a healthy looking skin.

*  Curl your Lashes first then use a Waterproof mascara, it is a must have and will stay put through a strenuous workout! No time for mascara? Try semi-permanent eye lash extensions, they last for weeks  &  no-one will know their not yours.

*  Use a lip tinted lip balm or a lip stain to accentuate your lips, try to keep it natural…… just have fun and keep it light.

I do believe than when you look good you feel good! Feeling good can make you feel more motivated to work out.
