With celebrity endorsements, books, YouTube tutorials and beauty magazines, the standards of beauty set on women today are confusing to say the least. While some endorse a body positive image, where they reiterate that however you look you are beautiful, with the caveat being added that this is only as long as you are healthy, others endorse a standard that is represented by a particular size, hair colour or skin tone. However, one thing remains clear – you are beautiful, just as you are, it is simply a matter of getting comfortable in your skin and letting that shine through.
While every magazine and website will endorse a different beauty product and celebrities and bloggers will swear by different creams, serums and oils the truth is that each person is unique and that what works for one person may not work for another. With all of these endorsements however, comes a great deal of criticism as well. ‘’Oh you don’t use an anti-aging serum, but you should!’’ is something many women hear over and over. Suggestions to get an eye lift will be made if not heavily hinted at.
But, if you do get an eye lift you will then have to meet heavy criticism for relying on medicine and technology to alter your look. There really is no win win situation here. Therefore, the only solution would be to turn a blind eye and a deaf ear to all the nay sayer’s and do what makes you happy and feel confident.
There is no need to conform
There is absolutely no need to conform to the high standards set by society on what you should like and what you should wear. Clothes are expensive, make up even more so. Wear clothes that make you comfortable. The ease you feel will carry through and you will look confident and collected which will only enhance your features and let your beauty shine through. Want to wear bright eye shadow, foundation and jump on the contouring bandwagon? Then do exactly that! Makeup can give us confidence and can help cover up whatever flaws we think we might have and if that gives you peace of mind and makes you feel beautiful then do just that!
Confidence is key
Confidence really is the key to looking beautiful. In today’s fast paced word it is easy to get stressed out and looking stressed and tired can affect how people perceive you. Being uncomfortable about how you look will only negatively impact your looks. Stay calm and relax and it will automatically help you feel strong, healthy and beautiful.
