Another collab for you this week! This time with the gorgeous CHARLOTTE. We decided to write about 5 ways you could make yourself feel more beautiful! All Charlotte’s links will be at the bottom of this post!
1. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT WITH YOUR HAIR
As someone who wears the exact same hairstyle every day, I love to experiment and see what else I can get to look good. I rarely wear my hair straight (it’s always curly/wavy) so on the off chance I do, I tend to get a few compliments! I’m also starting to experiment with more braided hairstyles and will hopefully be posting a few of my attempts, so keep your eyes peeled! Pinterest is a great place to get hairstyle inspiration, most of them look too impossible to get right but it can’t hurt to try! I also love dyeing my hair – nothing feels better than just having had your hair done. I’m currently in the process of dyeing my hair silver (gradually so I don’t ruin it) and I can’t wait until it’s done!
2. BUY NEW CLOTHES/MAKEUP
I’m extremely guilty of buying things to make myself feel better. I probably shouldn’t encourage you to spend lots of money but I really think it’s one of the best ways to make yourself feel better. I mean, how good do you feel when you go out wearing new clothes or having done your makeup differently? I put up a summer sales haul post a few days ago which you can read HERE in case you need any inspiration of where to shop!
3. PAMPER YOURSELF
There’s nothing I love more than doing a facemask, having a long shower (i hate baths), fake tanning and pampering my skin with almost every skincare item I have. I suffer with mild acne, and have done for so many years, so I take a lot of time throughout the week to do face masks and anything I can to improve my skin. I love to use my Body Shop tea tree oil face mask, I’ve used it since I was 13! I will also be posting an updated skincare routine soon, but you can find my old routine HERE.
4. PAINT YOUR NAILS
Pretty hands make me feel prettier. I have quite ugly hands but if I paint my nails, or even put fake nails on, it makes them slightly better. My current favourite nail polishes are the New Look Pure Colour ones, I reviewed them HERE. I also love Elegant Touch falsies – although they never seem to want to stay put on my nails!
5. DO YOUR MAKEUP
I dunno about you, but I always feel on top of the world when I do my makeup all nice and perfect. Day to day I usually just go for the basics – my base, eyebrows and some mascara. But sometimes it’s nice to go all out and do eyeliner and a full contour because it genuinely does make me feel beautiful. I think that’s probably my top tip – you are beautiful without makeup but sometimes it’s nice to take the time to really go all out with your makeup.
What do you like to do to feel more beautiful?
