Becoming the perfect personification of beauty is almost… nearly… not, truly it’s impossible, and even movie stars know that. The key to really looking gorgeous is not to become perfect, but rather to highlight your already-there assets. I mean, what would this world be like if J-Lo didn’t stand up for her impressive back side? What about Angelina Jolie’s famous plump lips and Tyra Banks’ large doe-eyes – can we really live without those? Recently, even the celebs themselves are taking up a more positive stance in regards to beauty. Actresses like Jennifer Love Hewitt and Keira Knightley have spoken up for maintaining their natural beauty despite what Hollywood may consider as flaws to the perfect image.
Saying thus, here are the 3 top beauty tips on how to achieve that Hollywood-esque glamour, without drastically changing your look.
1. Most beauty tips start from within, and so will this one. But no, we are not talking about personalities just yet. We mean that you have to take careful consideration of the food you put inside your system. We are not asking you to ditch food entirely so that you could fit into the near impossible size “0.” After all, Drew Barrymore and America Ferrera are 2 actresses who look G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S even though they are not in that category.
Rather, we want you to look at food as an ally to achieving beauty. For example, completely eliminating fats in your diet will only make your hair, nails and skin look sallow, dull and brittle.
One of the best skin care tips we can give you then is to go on an appropriate diet. And when we say appropriate diet, we mean a diet that is approved by doctors, dieticians and / or nutritionists. Not all diets are applicable to all body types, you know. An appropriate diet can help you lose or gain pounds (whatever your body needs,) and at the same time, give you that lustrous glow that only comes from being healthy from within.
2. If you want to know some healthy hair secrets, you could also ask the health professional what natural ingredients you could use to enhance you hair type. Eggs and olive oil are great as moisturizers, but there are other botanicals you could use.
As for hair styles and hair colors, one of the biggest mistakes you could do is to do your own hair. It may sound strange, but if you want to capture that Hollywood-esque glam, let the pros handle it. Ask your hairdresser what hair style will accentuate parts of your face that you like. If you have those really gorgeous eyes, (brilliant irises, or a large wide-awake pair,) hiding them underneath loads of bangs will diminish your beauty.
Jennifer Aniston for example, accentuates her sleek, chiseled jaws and slanted cheekbones with her definitive layered locks with the sun-kissed highlights. On the other hand, drastic changes can also be beneficial. Pop sensation Rihanna, continues to make waves with her suddenly short do.
3. As far as make up tips are concerned, the mantra now is light and glowing. Gone are the days when dramatic heavy-lidded eyes and overly rouged cheeks are considered a la mode. If you want make-up that can hide flaws (like dark rings around the eyes,) you could try some base concealers, and then go for mineral-based make-up instead like foundations and blushes.
This simple combo will not only hide undesirable spots, but it can give you that flawless, vibrant look. Just remember to apply the same to your neck area to complete the look.
