I’m back with the second lesson in my high maintenance series!
Today ill be talking about appearing more high maintenance, I did a lot of research on this because apparently wanting to look your best isn’t a thing everyone wants to do…
Anyways as I was saying I have done plenty of research and I’m here to bring you guys ,what I believe is a solid list￼. I’ve applied it to my everyday life and I feel my confidence shoot up!
Without further ado✨✨✨
1. You need to get a beauty routine together!
Looking good means feeling good and that means you should create a beauty routine that suits your individual needs. Whether it be, having a Sunday soak in the bath, your favorite hair mask, or just making sure you shave your legs, create a routine that you keep constant that makes you feel good!
2. Develop a signature makeup style/Practice makeup!
I personally believe makeup really does enhance your natural features. It honestly doesn’t matter if you do glamorous every day or a natural look, as long as you have some sort of makeup look that you can use as a go to you’re set! ￼ Now you don’t HAVE to put on makeup if you’re just walking your dog, or going to get groceries if you don’t want to! However I say Why the hell not? You’re the main character in your life! Be ✨Glamorous ✨ at every turn!
3. Clothing should be fit to your body type and kept clean!
If those jeans have a gap in the back why don’t you go get them Tailored? Having clothes that fit you to a T not only make you feel good, but you also look 100%￼￼. Figure out your body shape and try to dress accordingly!
4. Shoes should be always made to match your outfit !
Honestly any type of shoes can make you feel and look high maintenance! However I honestly recommend walking in heels! I always think of how elegant and poised I look in heels! Trust me I understand , it maybe hard but practice. I literally will put on my heels while doing house work just to practice. You never have to go to that extreme but practice makes perfect! If heels are not your thing, you can always wear ballerina flats, booties, boots, or some cute sneakers! Your choice so reflect yourself!
5. Nails should be kept neat and clean!
Let’s all face it, nails are one of the first things people really do look at! They should always be clean of dirt, cut down, and cuticles push back! If you can afford it go to the salon and get a tasteful set. I personally don’t not like super long, however do what makes you happy!! Keep them clean though!
6. Skin care should be a must!
As a licensed aesthetician I have learned that skin care is one of the foundations of having a good beauty routine. You don’t always have to go expensive with your skin care products. The ordinary has some great products that aren’t going to break your bank. You should always identify what your skin type is and then work accordingly. Also remember to drink water and try to cut out dairy and refined sugars! It clears up skin!
7. Hair shouldn’t look like a birds nest 🙄
I get it, sometimes you wake up late and you can’t figure out what to do with your hair. As long as you do not leave it as a Birdsnest or leave it super messy, and try to at least smooth it down take care of flyaways You’re set! If you can afford it, try to go to the hair salon every 2-3weeks! Look up hair care that you can do at home and sleep on a satin pillow case!
8. Accessories are a MUST!!!
Even if it’s a simple necklace, a couple rings, or your favorite pair of earrings, try to have an accessory to compliment whatever you’re wearing! I always think that diamond studs go with absolutely anything. Even a nice little statement necklace will bring it all together, shit throw on some bracelets and shake your wrist all day! I just know one thing, accessories help make the outfit!
9. Find your signature scent!
I absolutely love perfume! That doesn’t just stand with expensive perfumes, target has some bomb ass perfumes! When you establish your signature scent I would suggest doing something that makes you feel sexy￼! My personal choice? light blue in the warmer months. Libre intense for the colder months. I would definitely say try the $30 samples before you buy a large bottle! Or definitely go to Bath and Bodyworks, Victoria’s Secret, and target and try to find a scent! Target really does have some great perfumes and they’re not expensive at all!!
10. Don’t be a mean bitch/evil witch 🧙🏾♀️
No I didn’t say you can’t be a bitch, I think a certain amount of bitchiness is very sexy. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼￼However, don’t just be rude for no damn reason. Instead of telling your friend that her top is ugly, suggest something else and tell her I think this better suits you. Don’t make fun of other peoples style. Overall, just don’t be ugly. Because no matter how pretty and maintained you are on the outside, if you’re ugly inside, you’re ugly on the outside NO EXCUSES!
Looking high maintenance should not be a chore, it should be a daily occurrence that you weave and drill into your mind. This doesn’t mean you can’t have off days (lord knows I do) but getting pretty always makes me feel better!
Thank you so much for reading my little lesson!
I have many more to come
