Tips and Tricks For Looking Your Best
Ok I'm not going to be ordinary here: I'll provide quirky thoughts to keep in mind while staring into his or her eyes. Use these Tips for when you feel yourself being glared at by another human and you're intensely praying that you don't have lipstick on your teeth or a black eye (eyeliner; more like eye shiner)
So, let's start with the hair ladies: If it's down tuck a few small pieces behind an ear to frame your face. Jaw lines are in these days.
Ponytails and up does: Ensure your flyaways make a smooth landing. When you buy that 4 pack of toothbrushes for $3.17 from Family Dollar you better nominate one as the Edge Slayer . Toothbrushes and baby hair go together like chocolate and milk .
Next level is dem brow tings: About 5 years ago it seems like every woman became what I like to call 'Brow Birds.' Yes, I just compared eyebrows to a bird's wings because we TAKE OFF when them brows popping. So many different shapes and colors and styles. Recently, we've seen this wavybrow trend going around. I'd personally pass, twice, but it's definitely something to be acknowledged. My only trick to luxurious eyebrows is to LEAVE THEM ALONE
Smize for me daddy ! Whatcha lookin at ? Tyra Banks taught us to smile with our eyes aka Smize. If you just sit there and space out like I do here's a self exercise to do for stronger eye muscles : by trying to make your eyelashes touch your eyelids you don't realize how much more light you're letting unto your face all whilst looking alert and perky. I know how silly it sounds but it works; give ya eyes more life. (Heads up the lashes won’t reach the lid it's impossible ,but worth the effort)
Do this slight maneuver with the top lip and nose tip . I naturally flare my nose a lot because of my Aries nature, but at the same time I make this small opening with my top lip barely exposing my two fronts thus creating a kind of pouty innocent appearance. Who doesn't want to look innocent ? But, I warn you to not overuse this trick because constantly having your mouth open even a tad bit is plain weird . Combine this with the smize about three times a day and you’ll be fine .
I bring you to one of my biggest flaws: the double chin. I won't even get into the mechanics of it all, I'll just say keep your head up. Seriously, like Tupac so effortlessly said "gotta keep ya head up." All along he was just trying to teach us about these damn double chins and the remedy . Besides , you don't want to tip the crown right?
Ever think of what to do with your hands while walking . Please don't hide your hands under long sleeves or pockets . Even though we should be mature enough to NOT judge a book by its cover , for some reason a person walking by with there hands hidden just puts a certain stigma with him or her. Almost as if you want to ask them what they're hiding. Body language is a science. I recommend extending your hands toward the ground like you want to touch it. I picked this tip up from Tyra Banks back when she was doing ANTM: she critiqued one model for having her hands crumbled up in her shirt sleeves by saying it made her look inexperienced and afraid. I don’t know about you but Tyra is one person I have no issue taking advice from because I know it comes from a place of decency rather than dissing.
One last thumbnail of advice for hands : chipped polish is childish. If two or more nails have flaws , remove it all. Shout out my aunt Cee for that one!
