What’s your style?

  •   Fashion
Are you the girly-girl, the tomboy or just the get-up and go type? I think a lot of us, as females, have a little bit of the three in us. I mean who wants to get all dressed up to go to the library? How about going to a sporting event? A t-shirt and some jeans, sounds good to me! Oh and that dance party tonight, of course we have to look FABULOUS!
Just be YOU, in whatever you wear. The only person you have to impress is yourself. As long as you’re happy, forget what anyone else may have to say!
  • Make-up
Do you wear make-up? A little eye shadow and lip gloss? Or do you prefer to go au naturale (no make-up at all)? Whatever you prefer, always remember less is more! What a lot of people seem to forget is that make-up is just supposed to enhance your already natural beauty, not camouflage it.  You should never, when wearing make-up, look like anyone else but yourself. Think your eyes are your best feature and want to enhance them? Try a neutral colored eye shadow and some mascara. Want to emphasize your lips, a nice lip gloss is a great way to go.  Want to play around a little with some color? Use tinted lip gloss in a light shade like pink or orange. Or a colored eye shadow for your eyes, but remember to keep your skin tone in mind, some shades will be more flattering than others. Always remember to keep it light and don’t overdo it. We are all beautiful, a lot of make-up isn’t needed. Remember to be sure to clean your face daily, when you wake up and before you go to bed. Never sleep in your make-up, no matter how lightly it was applied.  Skin health is important girls!
  • Jewelry
Less is always more. Hmmm, I think I’m starting to sense a trend here, lol. Earrings and a necklace can always be the perfect addition to complete an outfit.  You don’t necessarily want to put the earrings, necklace, bracelet and ring together, it may outshine the outfit and not in a good way. If the outfit you’re wearing has a lot of decorations you will want to keep your jewelry choices very simple and very understated. Wearing a sequined tank? Go for some hoop earrings and maybe a few bangle bracelets. The simpler the outfit, the more you get to play around with combinations of jewelry. If you’re wearing some jeans and a tee or tank, go have fun and let your jewelry shine. Also be sure to never mix metals, like silver and gold, unless the style is similar. 
When determining the right looks for you, always keep in mind your age, body type and ultimately, you. Wear what makes you feel good and happy about yourself. If you don’t want to follow trends, don’t. Just be yourself, at all times. Let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to be you, you’re amazing?
