Find Confidence, Find Yourself

Confidence is a critical and timeless attribute that women have struggled with for not only decades, but centuries.  How a woman feels about herself can affect her health, relationships, career and pretty much any and every other aspect of her life.  For example, a woman who does not think she is worth being loved by a man will end up with men who do not really love or respect her.  In fact, most abusive relationships are a result of low confidence.

How can someone gain confidence?  There are many practices that can help raise your sense of self worth.  Update your wardrobe and get a sexy new haircut.  Once you see how beautiful you can appear to others, you will start to believe it yourself, thus making yourself even more attractive to others.  This is an infinite cycle.  Aside from physical improvements, be sure to complement yourself every day.  Stand in front of a mirror and tell yourself how wonderful you are.  Maybe you have the ability to make people laugh, or perhaps you are a brilliant painter.  While you may feel silly talking to yourself, this is a very simple trick that works wonders.

Now that you have convinced yourself that you really are fabulous, don’t be afraid to show it off.  Though it may seem a bit vain at first, a glamour photo shoot of yourself is the ultimate treat.  Make yourself feel like a star.  You are beautiful enough to be photographed in a highly indulgent fashion.

What’s Underneath

So you have found the perfect dress, but can’t seem to figure out how it looked so much better on your neighbor, who isn’t even as thin as you.  The truth is, she has learned the magical secret of finding the right undergarments.

Even the most beautiful woman has a flaw somewhere, I promise you.  Choosing undergarments to best shape your body will make anything you wear on top look amazing.  From bra to shapewear, every woman needs a little help in some area.  Once you have the girls where they should be and that tummy flattened out, that fabulous Herve Leger will fit you like a glove!

Be a Hair Goddess

Remember in the ’90s when you asked your perfectly competent stylist for the “Rachel” cut and yet you looked nothing like Jennifer Aniston?  It is not because your stylist was trying to play a cruel joke on you, but simply because you did not have the correct bone structure, among other elements.

The secret to becoming a “Hair Goddess” lies in understanding what lengths, styles and colors best complement your face shape, personality and skin tone.  Once you have mastered these very important elements of your ideal hairstyle, you will look amazing beyond your wildest dreams!

Dress to Perfection

Have you ever wondered how celebrities always look so perfect on the red carpet, even the ones who may not be the prettiest or thinest?  It is no magic trick.  In fact, many of them have stylists who know how to make anyone look great.  Believe it or not, there are garments that could make the most beautiful, size 2 starlet look frumpy.  It is all about knowing how to dress your individual body.  For example, we all remember Jessica Simpson in those horrible, high waist jeans which basically screamed her weight gain to the world.  However, she has been seen many times since in cute, fitted dresses, making her appear much more attractive.  In truth, the right wardrobe can take you anywhere you wish.
