Personal grooming is about presenting yourself in the best possible way. We career girls don’t always have an hour to get ready in the morning. ‘How do some women have the energy to get ready and dress everyday so nicely? ‘. As a personal stylist I think less is more and it really comes down to 5 basic things.
With these 5 basic tips you can easily look polished almost all the time.
5 Tips On How To Look Polished/Put Together All Of The Time
#1 Your hair
Nicely groomed hair makes not-so-expensive outfits look like a million bucks. When your hair isn’t done, any outfit can look sloppy. But a nice blowout takes outfits from drab to fab. Make sure to get a good hair cut – color is not always necessary especially if you can’t keep up with the touch ups. If you do decide to colour your hair, choose a color that is one or two tones lighter or darker than your natural color. Also, choose a hairstyle that works for your face shape and that’s easy to maintain.
#2 Know how to wear heels
Clomping around in high heels is a sure way to ruin even the most amazing outfit.
#3 Take care of your skin
If you do not have good skin, establish a skin care regimen that works for you.
Basic good skin care tips are to wear sunscreen, exercise regularly, sleep well and drink lots of water. Naturally, there are periods of our lives where we don’t have perfect complexions. Some of us are fighting zits. A good concealer helps mask those imperfections as a spotty face is distracting.
If you don’t have flawless skin. Try some natural looking makeup, just enough to cover any imperfections but never over the top. Of course, do not rely just on concealer for a smooth complexion. See a dermatologist if you run out of solutions.
#4 Take care of your nails
If you can’t keep your nail polish nice and not chipped on an everyday basis then keep your nails simple, short + have well-hydrated hands and no polish. Avoid nail art, fake or very long nails and painting your nails in different colors.
A nice bag and shoes make all the difference. You can easily wear high street clothes just make sure it fits and throw it out when it breaks! Iron what must be ironed. Wear clothes that fit and don’t show much skin plus a few pieces of jewelry.
Accessorize your look with a pair of nice heels (avoid bright colors and loud patterns) and a classic handbag (Chanel, Prada, Hermes, Bottega Venetta etc) or when you don’t have the budget for a designer bag a nice quality handbag from Zara or any other high street brand.
