Be Naturally Beautiful!

Well it's probably gonna say some things about me for stumbling upon this article on But it's good enough to make me wanna share it, so here goes! I am trying to work on those points I marked in italics! Which I consider the best points in this article cuz beauty is not just about the outside!

How to Look Naturally Beautiful

Nobody needs pounds of makeup to look beautiful. Sometimes, wearing too much makeup makes you seem less confident about the way you look. Also, it looks extremely overdone and is a turn-off to guys. Read on below.

1. Exfoliate your skin to waken it up and give you a healthy glow.

2. Smile daily. You'll reveal a new you.

3. Moisturize your skin daily, this will keep your skin soft daily and will also keep your skin beautiful as you get older.

4. Skip the foundation unless you really, really need it. Heavy makeup hides true beauty!
5. Add some pink blush to the apples of your cheeks (smile when you’re putting it on).

6. Put a little light brown or soft pink eyeshadow on your lids, but keep it natural looking by blending it. Don't use colors like blue, bright pink, or anything sparkly. It will look tacky and not natural. Try not to use tons of eyeliner. Use a brown for lighter complexions, or try black for darker complexions. Make a thin line on top of your lids near your lashes, and maybe a bit on the bottom. Use mascara on the ends of your lashes at the edges of your eyes, at a little extra just at that stop, it really opens up your eyes and makes you feel like a vixen!

7. Apply a lip gloss or lip balm. It has to look like it’s your natural color of your lips and make sure to apply it perfectly and to blend well! Sometimes, applying with your fingers will get a more natural look and less intense if the color is really dark. Also, don’t forget to exfoliate your lips at night and then applying Vaseline for extremely kissable lips.

8. Wear clothes you feel good in, and that define your features. Try to avoid wearing garment that do not flatter your figure such short women; avoid long skirts. And women with broad shoulders, avoid shoulders pads.

9. Always keep your hair brushed. To keep it in place during the day, spray on a little leave-in conditioner.

10. Get your eyebrows waxed (or pluck them yourself- but make sure you know how to do it correctly) to open up your eyes. But don't pluck them too much. If you pluck them too much it looks unnatural. Thin eyebrows are a total turn-off and look completely ridiculous. If you have naturally thick eyebrows just tweeze a little and thank the lord you have such lucky genes!

11. Stand tall with great posture.

12. Make sure to get at least 8 hours of sleep each night.

13. Get fresh air and exercise. Both will give you a healthy glow.

14. Have a healthy diet that includes fruit, vegetables, protein, and enough water. Don't diet too much or you will be so skinny that all of your bones will show.

15. Be confident, that is the ticket to looking truly beautiful!
