How to Look and Feel your Best You

For a while this year I haven’t been feeling like myself. I’ve been reminiscing of the old days and my best years were definitely 19-23. Sadly those days are long gone now, but just because I’m that much older it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t feel as confident as I did in my early 20’s.

Confidence is Key

It truly is amazing what a box of hair dye and a little bit of fake tan can do to your confidence. I went back to my dark roots last month and used the L’oreal Paris Casting Creme Gloss in Darkest Brown. At first I was a little worried it was too dark but after a few washes I felt fucking amazing. I felt so much better than I had done in months! Another product that gives me masses of confidence is a good fake tan. I’m not a regular fake tanner and only tan when I have events coming up or if I know I’ll be getting my pins out. My go to fake tan currently is the Cocoa Brown Tan in Dark.

Dress to Impress

It’s amazing what confidence and power a matching set of underwear can give you. I always feel most confident in something lacey that gives that oomph that I definitely need. Even if I am wearing the most drab clothes just knowing my underwear is matching makes me feel like a boss! I’m currently loving this stunning Juliette Padded Push-Up Bra from Hunkemoller, Hubba Hubba! There is also no greater feeling than buying a new dress that you feel fucking fantastic in. I recently bought this Mae Floral Print Mesh Dress from Warehouse and I didn’t want to take it off. I felt so confident in it that I wanted to party all night long without a care in the world.

Pile on that Slap

I do love piling on the slap. Contour, Baking, Highlight & Pressed Powder. I just love it all! I always dedicate a good hour to getting my face ready for a night out. It makes me feel so much more confident. My holy grail for finishing any makeup look is the Gerard Cosmetics Setting Spray as I know my hour of work prepping my face will last a full night of dancing with this finishing touch. A product that leaves me feeling confident without the slap is the James Read H2O Tan Mist.  It gives the face that perfect post holiday glow in just a few spritzes. It evens out  my complexion dramatically and leaves me feeling confident even without a full face of makeup.

    The one thing that makes me feel confident is sexy underwear. Even if nobody else will see it I feel much more confident and outgoing, it’s like my dirty little secret!!
