I am so sick of opening a magazine and being bombarded with all the ways to make myself beautiful. Now, I am not one to wear that much makeup (mostly because I am terrible at it and people that can make ombre lips are artists), but its hard not to feel out of place and less attractive when you aren't in a full face and cute shoes.
But lets be real, beauty tips are awesome and weight loss tips are usually a lie, but here are some REAL LIFE BEAUTY TIPS that every person should know before they start dabbling in the make up and fashion world. And for some reason, no magazine is teaching them.
1. No size is the Wrong Size
Everyones body is different and yet, everyone is still just as beautiful as the next person! So keep that in mind before you try and squeeze yourself into the size you think is the "beautiful size", because I know we all have that one number in our head. Reaching your goal size will not make everything perfect, because you already are perfect.
2. With or without make up you look great!
The make up debate is stupid and needs to stop. If you wear make up because you feel more comfortable or just love putting it on then rock it! If you hate make up you still look amazing. There is no reason make up should be that big of an issue and there is no reason someone should feel uncomfortable even going to the bathroom without it on. Have confidence in your face and everyone around you will notice how awesome you look.
3. Dress to your comfort!
And I don't just mean sweats, although I'm wearing some now and love every second of my life. When you go out dress in an outfit that will ensure you having the most fun! If you like short skirts, go for it. If you hate heels, don't wear them! There is absolutely no reason why you should feel uncomfortable all night because for some reason society teaches that you have to impress drunk strangers.
4. Loose, black clothing doesn't have to be the only thing you wear to "slim you down."
One of the most amazing parts of the body positivity movement includes plus sizes women posting pictures of themselves looking AMAZING in patterns, bright colors, and crop tops and the results are AMAZING! Black should be tossed to the side in favor of some eye catching outfits because you are beautiful and deserve to be in the spot light.
FYI Thats Tess Holliday and she is perfection.
5. Confidence is all that matters!
If you are confident in how you look, no matter what, you will radiate energy! Your confidence is what will attract people to you and thats what gets you friends and loved ones, not your looks. So keep that in mind because your mom is right, what's on the inside is what matters the most.
