by - October 07, 2020

 We all know that we want to feel our best and present ourselves in the best possible light. But doing that can often be harder than we think. The truth is, we want to do what we can to feel good, eat better, be healthy and fit, but yet, there are things that we avoid doing that can help us to feel all of those things and more. 

Life is busy, there is no denying that. We need to be able to function in our lives, stick with our commitments of work and our homes, and ensure that we still have a life that we enjoy. But we also don’t want to pay the price of not taking good care of ourselves. With that in mind, here are some of the best ways to look and feel your best.

Start with the basics and make them part of your routine

We all know that there are certain basic things that we should be doing that can contribute to helping us look and feel our best. But yet, are we actively incoporating them into our routines and general day to day lives? The answer is likely to be no, or certainly not as much as you should be doing. Here are some of the basic things we need to get a hand on. 

Exercising more frequently

One of the first things that you may want to do more of is exercise. We all know that we should be exercising more frequently but we can all admit that we might not do it as often as we should be. Exercising, especially when you are busy, is a hard thing to make time for. However, it doesn’t necessarily mean time consuming visits to the gym either. You can exercise at home, you can also look at running or just walking more frequently. There are things that you can do to help. 

Eating the right sort of foods

Your diet is also important when it comes to feeling your best. You don’t want to follow any extreme diets but simply have a more balanced approach to the food that you eat. Ensuring that you get all of the right nutrients and vitamins that your body needs to function. 

Sleep, drinking water and other things you can do

There are other basic things that you can do. These include getting a good night's sleep. This doesn’t mean quantity but more to do with the quality of sleep that you get. You should also consider drinking more water and ensuring that you do what you can to focus on your mindset and have a positive approach to life in general. This on its own can make you feel better.

The things we can often forget about but can make a big difference

There are things that we can often put to one side or even forget to check in with that can help towards feeling better in general. Here are some of the things that you can do or get organised with to get yourself back on the right track. 

Taking better care of ourselves 

It is important that we do what we can to take better care of ourselves physically and mentally, however, one thing we don’t do as often as we should is get our appointments booked in. If you are a parent, the chances are your children will be all booked up and ready. But for yourself, you may forget to get your teeth checked by the dentist or fail to book an eye test. It is important that you keep up to date with all of these things. Eye strain, for example, can cause headaches and nausea. Getting them tested then looking online at places like Eyeglasses.com can help you to find suitable frames. A dental check up will put your mind at ease and even having a check with your doctors to ensure that everything is as it should be can help you to feel better within yourself. 

Focusing on our fashion choices and feeling confident

When was the last time you placed any focus on the things that you wear? Your fashion choices and what you choose to wear can instantly make you feel better and give you a confidence boost. This means dressing for the occasion, wearing your favourite colour or pair of shoes just for the sake of it. Make those choices and become more confident in your skin just by wearing something you love or feel amazing in. 

Taking into account work and relationships 

Last of all, take some time to consider how you feel about work and the relationships you have. Ensure you do what you want and also make sure that your relationships are healthy and happy ones. Contact me on my coaching website to discuss how you can achieve your optimum working environment.

Your complexion and presenting yourself in the best possible way

When it comes to wanting a flawless look with our face and complexion, it can often mean that we are a little unsure on what to do and how to achieve it. Using makeup can really help and getting this right can give you a big advantage but you also need to consider things such as how you feel within and other avenues that you should explore. So what can you do? Here are some of the best kept beauty secrets to help you have that flawless finish. 

Invest in the right makeup and tools

The tools you have and the products you use are just as important as the techniques, so this is where you may need to invest some money to create that flawless finish. Using better quality brushes and higher pigmented products could improve the overall look you create without even the need for an improvement in your technique. This is purely down to the application and the product used. Invest in some of the key areas like foundation and contouring brushes. These will help you create that base you need. Other areas would be to consider higher-quality makeup products that even makeup artists themselves would use. 

Find out what works for you

When it comes to perfecting your makeup routine and finished look, it is important to work out what looks good with your skin tone, eye, and hair colour. This is when we can go wrong and try and emulate a style that looks amazing in a magazine but doesn’t quite look the same when we recreate it. This is when it may be worth having your makeup done professionally and taking note of what the makeup artist uses, the techniques and your finished look. Snap a selfie on your phone if you need to. 

The secret to concealing

We all want to know the best way to cover up an unwanted red spot or dark circles around your eyes, and makeup tricks are a great way to conceal them. However, a top tip to remember is opposite colours tend to offer better concealment and coverage. Think orange tint concealers for dark blue/grey circles. Or green pigmented concealers for red spots. You will be able to judge the colouring from the concealers themselves. 

Look at tips online

Finally, learn some of the secrets of the trade by reading up online. Fir example, want to know the secret to perfect winged eyeliner? You may find you applying it all wrong, in actual fact, the wing shape should be created from your lower eye line. Who knew? If you want to create a fuller lip apply foundation to your lips to remove natural pigment, and create the shape with a white pencil. It’s crazy the tips you can pick up online, but it could be the way you create that flawless finish only a makeup artist can, from the comfort of your own home. Why not give it a try yourself?

Let’s hope these tips help you to look and feel your best. 

Lots of love,
