The way we dress affects the way feel about ourselves. Dressing smartly makes one feel good about themselves and increases their confidence. How we dress also determines how other people perceive us and determines how they treat us.
In the professional world, your appearance comes into more focus and dictates how your boss and colleagues treat you, and even the types and numbers of clients you get. You wanted to be treated with respect for the consummate professional that you are. You want to look energetic and smart even on your bad hair days, and these beauty hacks will help you do just that.
Use a concealer for dark circles under your eyes
You went to bed late and woke up in the morning with dark, ugly circles under your eyes. Whatever the reasons are, dark circles make you look tired and can make you seem more fatigued than you actually are – not a good look for your boss to see.
Use a concealer matching your skin color to hide those dark circles. Start with the darkest spots – nearest to your eye – and apply more gentle strokes using a makeup brush as you come outward. If you have run out of a concealer, apply a thicker layer of your foundation so it covers the dark circles.
Foundation is your best friend
Regardless of your skin type, having the right foundation for your skin dramatically determines how your makeup will settle in when applied.
The right foundation will enhance your natural look, and with the appropriate makeup, your face will be looking smooth and flawless throughout the day.
Shave unwanted hair
There are now a growing number of women who wear their body hair proudly, but they are still a minority. If your unwanted hair is cause of embarrassment, find ways to get rid of it. You can shave, wax or get more permanent solutions.
Even if you don’t have facial hair, but you want to wear skirts and dress, shaving your legs will work wonders on your confidence. For smooth legs, soften the hair with water and use a quality shaver like Philips Norelco 9100 to avoid cuts, bumps, and irritation. Moisturize after shaving to keep your skin smooth and glowing.
Take care of your nails
Having some work done – even typing and getting documents from the printer – is particularly difficult with extra-long or fake nails. For your office work, keep your nails short and clean, you can polish the using a neutral color or any of the basic colors. Avoid outrageous nail art or any color that screams for attention.
If you can smell the scent of your own perfume then you overdid it. The scent of your perfume should waft around the office like an air freshener. No one should be able to smell your perfume unless they are hugging you. In fact, it should be so subtle that they just get a hint of it.
Your colleagues shouldn’t start sneezing and getting allergy reactions from your perfume.
