10 Things About Your Looks That Can Make You Look Ugly

Here are  10 small things about your appearance that can make a bad impression.

Christian Dior once said: “Simplicity, good taste, and grooming are the three fundamentals of good dressing and these do not cost money.” Some of us tend to forget about the third one, which undermines the value of the first two. Many can relate to a situation where a beautiful image created by your new shoes is spoiled by a price tag you forgot to peel off.

 

1. Faded clothes

A black dress can make even the most average among us look like a queen. But if the fabric looks like it has been washed dozens of times and it’s color is now far from the perfect black it used to be, it will make you look unkempt instead. This doesn’t just apply to black clothes, but to any saturated colors.

  • What to do: Wash your bright and black clothes in cold water and don’t tumble dry. To further preserve the color you can add vinegar, black coffee or tea when washing. The most prone to fading are clothes made from flax or acetate, while wool and nylon can preserve their color for longer.

2. Not perfectly white clothes

White, much like black, can have a positive effect on your appearance, but only if it’s perfect. Yellow or grey shades of a once white piece of clothing will make you look messy and dreary. Probably the most unrefined of all are sweat stains on white clothes.

  • What to do: Take a new white item of clothing and compare it with all of the white clothes you have. Slight signs of yellowing can be removed by adding hydrogen peroxide, baking soda, or lemon juice when washing whites. However, if the yellow has set in firmly it might be best to just get rid of that piece of clothing.

3. Negligently rolled up sleeves

Well rolled sleeves on clothes will make your image more youthful and dynamic. But sleeves pushed up like an accordion will turn you into the man who’s never worn a button down shirt in his life.

  • How to do it right: Unfasten the buttons on the sleeve, straighten and then turn the cuff inside out, making 1-2 turns for the entire width of the cuff. If the fabric on the cuffs on the wrong side differs in color from the main one, you can make an Italian sleeve tuck (see this video from 1:25).

4. Harem pants

Trousers with a low step seam (also called “Harem” pants) don’t raise questions if they are worn by a hip-hop artist or a chracter from a fairy tale. In any other case, these pants just look like an unsuccessful attempt to appear younger or more fashionable.

  • What to do: If you can’t just give up wearing these pants, then it would be better to at least wear them with sneakers or sandals. As the top element of the outfit you can use a simple T-shirt or tank.

5. Dandruff on clothes

Traces of dandruff on clothes look absolutely unalluring. When people see this, the only thing they want to do is step back.

  • What to do: Dandruff indicates that you are doing something wrong healthwise. Perhaps the skin of your head is too dry, or you don’t take enough of a certain vitamin. A trichologist will help you to figure everything out, until then try not to wear a dark top.

6. Too many accessories

Going over the top with jewelery, especially in combination with bright make-up, can turn even a carefully thought out outfit into something awkward.

  • What to do: The Great Coco Chanel advised us to remove the accessory that we put on last, before leaving the house. After all, this is usually the one that turns out to be superfluous.

7. Unkempt beard

A man’s beard, like a woman’s cosmetics, can emphasize the positives and even disguise flaws in your appearance. However, this only works if the growth on the face is neat and well-groomed. A beard, which is not properly cared for will make any member of the opposite sex look homeless. Not to mention, sometimes food gets stuck in it.

  • What to do: Give the beard a proper shape, which should be chosen according to your face shape. This should preferably be done in a barbershop. In the future, you can maintain the shape yourself by using a trimmer.

8. Saggy pants

It seems that pictures do a much better job of explaining why you shouldn’t wear jeans or pants this way. These look especially ugly in combination with bad posture.

  • What to do: Buy jeans that fit your size, while at the same time trying to avoid styles with a significantly low waistline. To control the position of the spine, try to imagine the first time that someone poured a glass of cold water down your back.

9. Stale make-up

Crumbling mascara, cracked lipstick, badly drawn eyebrows — these and the other effects of wearing make-up for too long can make you look unattractive. In addition, old make-up will make your face look tired.

  • What to do: If the make-up has lost its freshness to the point that it’s easily noticeable, the best thing to do is just wash it off. In the future, to make cosmetics last longer, especially on the eyes, use a make-up base. If you don’t have one, then a regular cream will help fix the dark circles.

10. The little things

The devil, as we know, lies in the details. Lipstick on your teeth, a small hole in your dress, a piece of parsley stuck in your teeth — these small things are quickly and easily noticed by people we’ve just met.

  • What to do: A simple rule will help to avoid these missteps. Before leaving the house, take a few minutes to critically examine yourself in the mirror. The same should be done after drinking coffee or having a bite to eat.

To understand the value of these tips, just remember your own reactions, for example, to dandruff on someone’s shoulders. What are some things about others around you that you consider unattractive

Here Is The Right Way To Cover Up A Pimple With Makeup!

 

Have you seen those makeup tutorials on Instagram and YouTube where they just magically cover up and acne and then you look at yourself and realise you can’t even cover your dark circles right… well, same here! While I still haven’t figured out the exact science of cover-ups but I have found a way to cover up that one pimple that suddenly erupts on your face on an important day with makeup!

 

Shall we?

1. Start by icing the zit and the area around it. This will reduce the redness and inflammation. Let it dry.

 

2. Dab some loose powder on the area to mattify it with a small eyeshadow brush.

 

3. Take a simple Band-Aid. Cut out a really tiny round piece, literally the size of your pimple and stick it on your breakout.

 

4. Once that’s stuck, dab some green colour corrector around the Band-Aid to cancel out the red.

 

5. Apply a coat of concealer on the bandage and set with powder. Then add another layer of concealer. The trick here is to keep everything minimal but to also make sure you don’t put makeup on an active zit.

 

6. Finally, do your foundation routine and dab another spot of concealer ONLY if needed.

 

I have used this trick specifically when I have recently burst a pimple and I have to step out. I just do not like the idea of putting on makeup on an open wound. But if you can, for the most part, please let your breakout breathe and don’t cover it up with makeup. This is ONLY when you don’t have an option and need a fool-proof way to cover it up.

5 Fashion Essentials Every Girl Should Have In Her Closet

“Elegance is not catching somebody’s eyes; it is staying on somebody’s memory.”-Giorgio Armani

A wise adage by Carmel Snow once said that elegance is good taste plus a dash of daring. However, what does it mean to be truly elegant? Is it the way you assemble your clothes? Or how confidently you carry yourself? Well, it is a balanced combination of both—with the assistance of style of course! When it comes to fashion, looking stylishly sophisticated and elegant can be a hit or miss. After all, what is considered chic can mean very different things to various individuals. To some, it might mean having a signature style like an accessory bought from a wholesale Bob Marley shop, to others it could mean having a unique preference for fashion and clothes. However, if you are a woman who wants to have an edge when it comes to looking stylish, here are some of the closet staples you should always have at your disposal:

1.) Little Black Dress

Never underestimate the power of a little black dress. This versatile piece is one fashion item that transcends fads and trends and until today remains a classic staple in every woman’s wardrobe. You are rest assured that the little black dress never goes out of style and is appropriate for all kinds of occasions—from casual dinner dates to getting quick Friday drinks at the club. To put a unique spin on this classic fashion staple, choose a design that has unique details such as texture, a few embellishments here or there or an unconventional neckline.

 


2.) Structured Bag

More often than not, a woman’s bag ties the whole outfit together. In today’s modern fashion times, a woman’s bag is no longer considered as a necessary fashion accessory but actually, forms part of her fashion ensemble. For an exquisite look, choose a structured bag as they are chic and timeless. Furthermore, the unique shape makes it look expensive and even more elegant, and they come in various colors too. However, to ensure that you can pair them with anything in your closet, choose neutral colors such as white, black, brown and tan as they transcend seasons and only get better over time.


3.) Tailored Pieces

Nothing makes a woman look more elegant than a set of clothes that fit her well. Take the cut of a pant leg, for example, it might be a detail that may seem negligible, but it can actually make a world of difference to your silhouette. Women are not shaped alike so. Consequently, it would be a bit of a challenge to find a pair of pants that fit you perfectly. However, a trusty tailor can address that particular dilemma. Clothing that fits you would make you look instantly elegant so invest on a good tailor who can do the job for you.


4.) Turtleneck

Turtlenecks may have gotten a bad reputation for being rather stifling when worn, but wearing them does actually have some merits. The neckline which tends to make your neck look elongated and the knitted texture of turtlenecks would make any girl look chic and sophisticated. Furthermore, wearing them would make it seem like you have grown an inch or two. Get them in different styles from full sleeves to sleeveless ones and pull them over skinny jeans for an instantly sophisticated look.


5.) White Button Down

A white button down polo shirts is essential to every woman’s closet. Not only are these pieces extremely versatile, but they make anyone look professional in just an instant. Furthermore, there is something classy about a woman who can rock something as simple yet sophisticated as a white button down top. A word of caution: Make sure that your white button down tops is steamed or ironed as wrinkles never look good.
