Crave: New Year Beauty and Fashion To Do List
January 01, 2012 9:43 PM
Happy New Year! Throughout the year, I talk to dozens of fashion and beauty experts who give me great information on everything from choosing the right jeans to what underwear to wear. I’ve put together some of my favorite tips on how to look your best.
Stop worrying about the number on the size tag. Get yourself clothing that fits properly instead of squeezing yourself into something too small or swimming in a piece that’s too big.
When you shop for jeans, be prepared to try on numerous pairs and be willing to get them altered if you cant find a perfect fit.
Dark denim is universally flattering. A good dark pair of wide leg jeans can do wonders for your lower half.
If you are going to wear leggings, make sure they are thick enough, not see through. Thicker leggings also contour your legs nicely. And cover your tush.
Don’t be afraid to buy a couple pieces of shapewear. Whether you are trying to conceal or accent a body part, there is a piece out there that will flatter your body.
Get professionally fitted for a bra. Do it now.
Nude pumps make your legs look longer. They are a great all around shoe to have and they go with just about any outfit.
When you are shopping in a consignment store, if you see something you like, buy it. Because it’s probably the only one in the store, there’s no time to think about it over night.
Always choose makeup products with the highest amount of SPF (sun protection factor) in them. Your face will thank you by looking younger longer.
V-neck tops and long necklaces do wonders in slimming your upper body because they elongate your neckline. Everybody has a nice neckline, so show it off.
Use a pressing motion when applying eyeshadow with your brush. You deposit more color and don’t have as much fallout under your eye.
Don’t get rid of old jewelry. Take it to a jewelry designer and have it turned into something you love again.
Give gel nail polish manicures a try. They really do last for two weeks without chipping, giving you one less thing to worry about.
Invest in more comfortable shoes. Ladies we buy those fabulous shoes, but end up not wearing them because they turn into torture devices within an hour or wear. Comfort shoes have come a long way and are more stylish than ever.
