“It is okay to take care of everyone else, but NOT okay to not Take Care of You”

There comes a time when we all need a little help to pull off the newest in seasonal looks. As Spring blossoms from the dark days of Winter, it’s time to look at your own style(s) and how you can rock and turn it into something new and fashionable.

Starting with:

Those Luscious Lips:

There a secret to spring’s bright lipsticks in lifesaver colors, bright reds, corals, pinks and fuchsias and more. These colors must have shine or this look isn’t going to be pulled off. Start looking into all of today’s beauty & fashion magazines and decide for yourself, “do those colors look better on me or her?” Who ever “her” may be not every actress has a sense of taste or color, so keep that in mind.

The Confident Look:

Ever heard of faking confidence? This is all about faking it till you make it and it becomes who we are. Remember it is all about attitude! When you look good, you will feel confident.

Be Stylish:

Remember there is a fine line between looking polished, and confident style woman or a “rhymes with witch and starts with a ‘B’. It’s how you pull off your own bold look without going over that fine line and then it’s “oh no” and wash it all off and try it again till you have it.

Cleansing-Back to Basics:

As with all make up one needs to start with a cleansed, well-moisturized face. The more simple the routine then the more likely that it will get done and often.

The Natural Look:

Not all women want to work at the latest Gala with just a bare face and wearing lip-gloss. Not everyone wants to wear the l am all-natural look either. So keep it simple. This is not a look that requires you to wear foundation. That is why you need to stay away from those over plucked eyebrows as well.

The Strong but seductive Woman:

Start thinking about when women wore strong lipstick and dark eyes. This is not the type of woman who you messed with! She wears Teal eye shadow on her eyelids and Coral Lipstick with shine on her lips. Her strength shines through the colors. This is a look we all have secretly desired but never truly knew how to pull it off. Now here are some ideas of how to pull it off without taking away from who or what you are. It’s very important for all women to be able to show just how strong we are, by what we wear to how we are seen by others. Some of us want to be behind the scenes while others want to be front and center. Who do you want to be today?

Don’t Forget Those Nails:

To make this look your own you must wear your fingernails with simple nudes or French manicure. Remember the idea is not to over do it. If you still feel the need to wear bright red or pink, then do it on your toes, who is going to know? Mood nail polish is an even better choice of colors on your toes. Who knew that showing off your mood on your toes could be so much fun?

Besides with today’s fashion craze, wearing open toe shoes with a splash of color can really help pull off of the beauty of a pair of the most up to date stylish shoes.

Take Charge with Style:

Now for the woman who is going to be the CEO of her own company: It’s time to find power within yourself, starting today!

With your mind & body filled with confidence you can walk by the hall mirror and you say to yourself “Damn! I look good!” Then you have pulled this look together and made it yours. Start today by taking charge of who you are and what you are. The world is your playground!
