Tip of the day –

 

Need a little help avoiding the clumps when applying mascara?  Longer fuller looking lashes can be easier than you think :

 

-  Comb through clean eyelashes with an eyelash comb, sweeping the comb from roots to tips to separate lashes and remove any residue

-  Use an eyelash curler to curl your lashes

 

-  Wiggle the mascara wand from side to side starting from the base of your lashes to the tips

 

-  Then repeat to apply a second coat, it’s up to you whether or not you apply while the lashes are still wet or dry, try them both then, you decide.

12 simple tips to shop like a pro or make shopping a breeze:

12 simple tips to shop like a pro or make shopping a breeze1

 It’s ok if you are one of those people who get overwhelmed at the thought of shopping, not sure how to shop,  feel out of place, get overwhelmed at just the thought or you just don’t like shopping at all. Shopping does not have to be painful, it can be easier than you thinkNo need to be a fashion editorHere are 12 simple tips to shop like a pro or make shopping a breeze:  

 
1.   Take inventory of what you already own………now  think about where you can fill in the gaps  

 

2.   Look for inspiration - whose style do you admire or whose style would you like to imitate? (a celebrity  or magazine is a good place look for visual reference)  

 

3.  Come up with a uniform- what do you pieces do you tend to go to most often or what does your work or lifestyle dictate? Also, think about the message you would like to send (professional, artist, etc..)

 

 
4.  Create  a shopping list (you must know what you need, look for gaps in your wardrobe especially, in your foundation pieces ). What’s missing?  

 

5.  The early bird catches the worm- hit the mall early to avoid the rush and while it’s still peaceful  

 

6.  Get colors that compliment you, what color do you feel most confident in?  Most people tend to lean towards a color that makes them feel good.   (At some point getting a color analysis is a worthwhile investment) The right colors can take years off your look.  

7.  Spend more money on staples (your foundation pieces) and less on trendy pieces  

 

8.  Think about what is the garment for? Does it work or fit your life style?  

 

9.  Try on the garment- you don’t want to get home and hate the way the garment looks on.  

 

10.  Don’t shop hungry or tired – It’s hard to focus when you are hungry (keep snacks handy)  

 

11.  Be sure to love the way you look in the garment? Look in the mirror….Does it make you feel confident?

 

 
12.  Don’t buy a garment just because it’s on sale! Each purchase should be intentional!

10 reasons to do a closet audit

 

Stop the presses!! Don’t add any more clothing to your already overflowing closet!  In this case more does not always mean better.  Just because it’s on sale doesn’t mean you have to have it.  Do you have a full closet and still have nothing to wear?  Adding more items to your overflowing closet is still not solving the problem.  Maybe you can’t find your special event pieces or  just looking at your wardrobe seems overwhelming.  It’s time for a new look and we all want to feel more confident. 

Here are 10  reasons to do a closet audit:
 

1.  You get overwhelmed when you look at your closet or even look for something to wear

2.  You’ve accumulated stuff that you don’t currently wear (Have you worn in in a year)

3.  Your closet is cluttered

4.  Your wardrobe is not manageable and you are not sure what you own

5.  You have pieces from your high school or college days ( that’s not cool, they are probably out dated)


6.  Your career or lifestyle has changed

7.  There is no room for something new

8.  It’s time transition from warm to cold weather or cold to warm weather

9.  People think you are older than what you really are

10. You continue to spend tons of money on wardrobe each year(with a professional audit you can save money)

A few things to consider when doing a closet  purge or edit:

- Do the pieces fit or can it be altered

- Is it currently in style

- Are they in good condition

-  Is the color and pattern complimentary to you

-  Do you feel confident in this piece

-  Are you truly going to wear it or is it taking up valuable real estate

*Tip: Give your nicer unwanted pieces to charity
