You know you love your makeup and your hair as much as the next woman, right? So when someone suggests you learn to manage your hours, it can be overwhelming. Even with all the tips out there about how important style & beauty is in life for women of all different appearance types, many people don’t know what they’re doing. The adage that “You are who you wear” still applies – so we here at Cosmopolitan say it might be time to learn how to look great on our own! Because as a source of self-discovery and empowerment, learning to manage your hours isn’t something we just throw around or suggest as an afterthought. It’s essential for every woman (and man) who wants to make the most of their days – not just those who are already successful but also those who aspire to become more Ladylike. That being said, even if you already take care of yourself healthily and thrive on simple carbs (like most of us do), this doesn’t mean that style & beauty are incompatible. If you’re looking for a new way to completely immerse yourself in Instagrammable fashion then check out these tips on how to achieve that effective look that only you can provide:
Do the most important thing first
No one told you you were special when you were a kid, no one told you were brave, or even good-looking. All those things were gifts from the Almighty and gift you’re perfect for – if you want to keep them. If you don’t need those things, if you feel okay with being without them, then by all means, take them. But as soon as possible, get to the root of the issue and do the most important thing first: be present. This means taking yourself seriously. You don’t need to impress anyone, you just need to yourself. If you feel okay with performing your tasks during the day as if they were a part of a job, then great! You can take the day off work and indulge in a hobby you’ve always dreamed of doing: your beauty routine. If your skin feels dry or your hair is unruly, take it out and take time so that it can dry off, then straighten and Style Your Life!
Be true to yourself
Your skin is your natural skin color, your hair your color too, and your makeup your definition – and while you’re at it, your personality too. If you want someone to like you, you need to be 100% yourself – which means being yourself on the outside, not trying to fit in with anyone or anything else that isn’t you but looking at you full-on-off. Why do you always have to wear that fancy dress or go to that fancy restaurant? It’s not necessary – for you and everyone else, it’s okay to just be you. When it comes to Style & Beauty you don’t have to pick out the things to wear or purchase the most expensive products because that would be trickling down to others – and that’s not nice. Instead, pick something that truly represents who you are, something that makes you feel beautiful, such as a simple pair of old, worn-out workout shoes or a pair of turquoise socks. Simple.
Find your best self
After you’ve taken care of yourself, it’s time to rededicate your time to find your best self. This might seem like an odd thing to say since you’re already so full of self-confidence, but in this day and age, it’s only wisely done. People want to be around you because they want to talk to you – not because they want to shill for your products or services! So if your priority is serving the world, then focus on helping them find their best self – and help them realize their true potential! Whatever it takes, until that’s accomplished, you’re going to remain an asset to society – as long as you’re willing to sacrifice some things for the greater good.
Find your purpose
After you’ve cultivated healthy self-esteem and found your purpose, it’s time to take your full focus back to the kitchen. You deserve to be happy, and you need to make time for yourself so that you’re allowed to spend time with the things that make you happy. You don’t need to Shop Out Every week or Order a Set of Clocks From obnoxiously high-end stores because that’s what they’re famous for – and that’s not what you want to do. You don’t need to be a published author because that’s what you’re called to do and you don’t want to be left out of the conversation any more than you want to be left out of the conversation about anything. You don’t need to be an expert in any specific field since there are so many amazing ones – you just need to know yourself and find what feels good on the inside.
Invest in yourself
As soon as you’ve got your priorities straightened out, it’s time to invest in yourself. You’re going to spend the majority of your day in the kitchen so you must find a way to get enough sleep, eat healthily, and get in some exercise so that you’re in tip-top shape for your day. While you should be spending more time socializing with friends and less time in the kitchen, you also need to find ways to spend your free time wisely on your style & beauty. If you’re not making the most of your free time, then who’s going to? So, find ways to spend your free time wisely. If you’re not doing enough of this, then who’s going to?
