How to Look Glamorous this Christmas
We often envy the way the rich and famous look, due to how glamorous they appear. Like it or not, women are primarily judged by the way they look. You don't have to be a movie star to be glamorous, however. You, too, have the ability to achieve glamour.
Carefully follow my 12 days of Christmas Glam guide and you will not fail to impress this season!
1st day of Christmas
Wear heels as often as possible. Heels give your booty a boost up, which creates more curves and gives you the sexy strut that every glam girl . Heels lengthen the body, giving you a longer line which makes clothes look better. They also dress up even the most casual outfit.
2nd Day of Christmas
Keep your skin looking good. Moisturize it every day, get rid of dry, dead skin and use high-quality skin products that will help improve and maintain a healthy complexion.
3rd Day of Christmas
Get a great hairstyle. Look in magazines to see the latest hairstyles and then determine which one would be the most flattering on you. Chic, low-maintenance styles might work best, since they require less time and effort to keep up. Make certain that your hair colour compliments your skin tone and doesn’t make you look older.
4th Day of Christmas
Experiment to see which makeup best compliments you. You need to find out what shade of foundation to use, how to expertly apply mascara, eye shadow, lip colour, etc. Get the advice of a professional, by visiting a department store and asking a cosmetics assistant to help you find what looks best on you.
5th Day of Christmas
Wear well-fitting clothes that are classy and that look good on you. While you want to keep up on fashion trends, not every style looks good on everybody. Find what works best for you and then purchase outfits that are going to draw some very positive attention. It may set you back a few dollars to buy a few items of designer clothes, but you will be rewarded with looks of admiration.
6th Day of Christmas
You don’t have to spend an arm and a leg, but choose quality items. No matter what the price tag says, make sure what you’re buying is constructed well, and looks like it won’t be thread bare after a couple of wears. Also choose high quality fabrics like silk, wool, leather as often as possible, Glamour is all about exuding luxuriousness.
7th Day of Christmas
Accessorize, Accessorize! These are the best tools to achieve a super glamorous look and can be used to update an outfit from day to night at very little cost. Be careful to balance accessories though, avoid overloading with earrings and a necklace, as you may run the risk of looking like Bet Lynch!
8th Day of Christmas
Perfect Posture is key to achieving a glamorous look. Think Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn, they all carried themselves with their heads held high and with fabulous grace and poise.
9th Day of Christmas
Pick pieces that help you to achieve an hourglass silhouette. This is glamour at its best.
10th Day of Christmas
Wear Red, the colour of the season, it’s the ultimate in glamour. Whether it’s a killer red dress or a red lippy, make a statement.
