Avoid These 7 Mistakes That Make You Look Fatter & Older!
Im constantly concerned with the amount of poeple i see making these 7
mistakes ! Its time to take a stand and make 7 small changes!
1. TOO DARK!!!
Black Clothing looks wonderfully elegant and slimming on most people BUT as you age your skin tends to go lighter in colour and so having dark hair next to your skin tends to bleed all the life from it! You start to look like a vampire! Go and get some highlights put thru your hair which will instantly soften the hair next to your face and will also make your skin look smoother, creamy and much younger!
2. HEAVY MAKE-UP!!!
We begin wearing make-up in our teens because we ususally want to look a little older - BUT we forget that the techniques we used then - will make us NOW look too old! This isnt the look we are going for!Less is more and i can teach you many subtle but powerful tricks on how to apply your "face!"
I can already hear you say.."really, my shoes??!!" Yes! The amount of women who are wearing old fashioned, unattractive shoes that instantly age you! In this day and age, even if you need a pair for orthopedic reasons - those cloggs can still look super sassy and still be comfortable! The amount of times i bear witness to the mountains of old and crusty shoes you have in your wardrobes! Move on!
4.SHOPPING WITH THE WRONG PEOPLE!!!
Yes, friends and family mean well when they trudge thru the shops with you - but its sometimes very hard for them to 'see you' in a different way, other than your best mate since you were 10yrs, or , you'll always be my little girl and your now 40yrs! Everyone has their own opinion and its not necessarily a good opinion , so this is where i come in! Let someone who knows what they are doing - help you!
Scarves are so in right now - but they have to have the right decade to them! If your wearing one from the 80's-90's then you are just letting everyone know how old your clothes really are. Use your accessories to UPDATE your look very simply and cheaply! From handbags, to watches, to hats thru to ear rings! Go modern or classic to always look on point!
6. YOUR 'RETRO' LOOK!!!
So many times i see women think that their favourite top / jacket/ skirt has come back into fashion and now they are going to wear it again! No! Dont do it! Just because the style is back, it doesnt mean that you should be wearing it and that it even suits you and your body shape now. Also, the great thing about fashion fads is that they will bring back a look , BUT they will always put a twist to it eg: Dungarees with tappered legs were so in when i was 16yrs, now they are back and my daughter has just bought some, but they are skinny legged dungarees.
Its so easy to get stuck in a rut, and once your there its a little tricky to get yourself out! In order to be looking and feeling your best you need to have the right attitude otherwise no matter what you wear - its still not going to look good. I have met women who refuse to just let go and try something new, or to let go of all the old, outdated clothes they have and to treat themselves to clothes that reflect who they truely are. Drop the attitude ladies and you will see a fresh new vision of who you can be!
