Let’s be honest, we all want to look good no matter what the occasion. Whether we’re going out for a bite to eat with friends or dressing up for an important dinner, we want to look our best at all times.
Why? Because when we look our best we feel our best, and this can really boost our confidence and put a smile on our face. Bearing that in mind, here’s some beauty advice you need to follow if you want to look good for every occasion life throws at you:
Casual beauty is probably the most important one as it’s something you come across a lot. You will end up in plenty of casual situations that demand you follow a casual dress code. It doesn’t matter if you’re wearing a sun dress for your Sunday brunch or a pair of leggings for your morning coffee, there are casual styles for everyone and every occasion. The key is that you dress how you expect others to dress. If you’re going to a cafe for brunch, you know people are going to be wearing casual clothes like a simple dress or maybe jeans. Likewise, if you’re going out to the park with your kids, you know people might wear more relaxed clothes such as leggings or shorts, etc. Casual beauty is all about simplicity, particularly regarding your clothes. If something feels like it’s too much, then it’s probably too much. Keep it simple, keep it relaxed, wear things that make you feel comfortable.
As far as makeup goes, you follow a very similar guideline. You’re not going anywhere special, so you don’t need to go all out with your makeup. Just keep it simple and maybe use a tiny bit of foundation to hide some of your flaws. If you want to go really casual, you can just avoid makeup altogether. This gives you a natural look that complements any casual outfit.
We all have smart occasions now and then where we have to really make an effort. This could be dressing up for a wedding or attending a ball of some kind. Regardless, you want to look smart and glamorous during these events. This means your outfit should be a little bit more complex than the casual ones mentioned earlier. There’s no room for leggings or jeans here! Instead, you’re looking at bodycon dresses, maxi dresses, jumpsuits, and some of your best jewelry. I also suggest you get your hair done professionally for glamorous occasions as they don’t come around often so you should make the most out of it and look as good as can be.
Makeup-wise you’re doing the complete opposite to a casual look. This is where you get your highlighters out and try to glam yourself up as much as possible. Don’t be afraid to use a lot of different things here. After all, these occasions tend to be special, so they require the special makeup treatment. Again, you should get your makeup done by professionals to guarantee you get the perfect glamor look.
Professional occasions typically revolve around work. They can be business conferences, big meetings with clients, or any other business event. In this scenario, the emphasis is on looking smart more than anything else. Consider wearing a suit with a skirt, tights, blouse, and jacket. This makes you look super formal, and you won’t be out of place. There are also professional dresses you can wear as well. I recommend you pay attention to your footwear here too, this is no place for heels! Keep your shoes nice and plain, preferably with as small a heel as possible.
As far as makeup goes, you don’t want to overdo it and look like a clown! Remember, you’re in a professional setting, so keep the makeup simple, yet elegant. It shouldn’t be as plain as your casual makeup, and you should pay attention to your eyebrows too. I always think you look more business-like when you have nicely shaped eyebrows. Get those sharp edges, and you’ll look like the boss.
It doesn’t matter what scenario you’re in, you can always look good. The trick is understanding what to wear and how to do your makeup. Think of the occasion and dress to fit in, not to stand out! You don’t want to turn up to Sunday brunch in a glamorous dress or suit. You don’t want to attend a wedding in your leggings and a hoodie, and you certainly don’t want to be at a business event in a short maxi dress! Keep all my advice in mind, and you can dress to impress all the time.
