My research into the Top 5 Fashion Secrets of European Women led me to uncover Secret No. 1 as "Emphasize Your Assets". European women are much better at knowing their assets. Take a good look in the mirror. Maybe you have beautiful eyes, delicious lips, wonderful cheek bones, gorgeous hair, delicate shoulders, long legs, or a bella figura.
Appreciate your strong points and lose focus of what you think are imperfections. Then maximize your appearance with clothes, accessories and cosmetics. Embrace your femininity - wear skirts, high heels, gorgeous dessous that only you know about, and remember that you are a Goddess. Put your assets on a pedestal. The key is to always hold the image of yourself as you would like to be.
See your own perfection, as the person you were intended you to be. Purposefully hold to the ideal of yourself. How do you get started? It's easy as looking in the mirror and jotting down what you like about your features. Also, don't hesitate to ask your partner or friends about what features stand out for them or if they have a favorite outfit you wear. One caveat with both approaches though ? please leave off any dislikes from that list and make sure you approach people who are positive and uplifting. The purpose is to find your perfections, not your imperfections! Also, focus on embracing and maximizing one feature at a time.
It's very easy to get overwhelmed if you try everything at once. You want to start on a discovery path, not climb up rocks to get to the top of the pedestal. Here's the most important part - don't forget to have lots of play and fun with discovering your strong suits. Keeping this in mind, you will be able to minimize the effects of insecurities and concerns about style mismatches. Another wonderful bonus is that you'll radiate and glow, erasing the results of age, stress and environment. So, what are you waiting for? There isn't any better time than now to get started! Get to know your assets and emphasize them.
Take a good look in the mirror. Look at your beautiful eyes, delicious lips, wonderful cheek bones, gorgeous hair, delicate shoulders, long legs, or a bella figura.
