The thing is, you don't have to be pretty to get all the things you want. There's way more to life than that. Plus, beauty standards are something that are very subjective and differ from one person to the another. So "NO" these kinds of looks don't really matter.
BUT, people who are well kept and look neat and well dressed usually appear more attractive and may find themselves with more opportunities opening to them! So "YES" good looks matter.
What I'm talking about here are your looks in terms of things that are under YOUR control. In other words, how to look your best at all times.
So here are 7 things you can do to help you stand out and become an opportunity magnet in terms of career, social life and relationships.
1 Dress like You're Going Somewhere else Later
You know how when one of your friends or coworkers show up in very nice and stylish clothes everyone just asks them if they are going somewhere else later?!! One of the best tips to help you stand out is to dress for success. The point is, it's always good to dress your best and make sure your outfit suits the place you're in. The perfect outfit can boost your confidence. Being presentable at work might make you more recognizable hence, more opportunities and maybe a better chance for a promotion. A nice outfit can make your crush notice you, can help you make more friends and get compliments that boost your mood.
2 Never Leave the House without Makeup
This is a tip that I borrowed from the beautiful actress Sofia Vergara. You don't have to wear the full cakey makeup look whenever you step out of the house, but with just a bit of blusher, mascara and gloss you'll have an amazing glow! Just don't forget to wash off the makeup at the end of the day to keep your skin young and beautiful.
3 Do Your Hair
Don't leave the house with messy hair because it ruins everything! And I'm not talking about messy buns...those take time and effort and they look cute. Always keep your hair looking neat and you'll definitely stand out. If it's curly, use anti-frizz products. If it's straight comb it and style it as it suits you. If you pull it up into a bun or a ponytail, make sure you take care of the baby hair flying from the sides of your head.
4 Get in Shape
A good figure is more important than a pretty looking face... that's the truth ladies! Lose those extra pounds or gain the pounds you need. Having a nice figure will make clothes look better on you and will give you an amazing and attractive silhouette. Start working out at least twice a week. do whatever activity you like so you're more likely to stick with it. And this works best if you also make healthy food choices.
5 Take Care of Your Skin
Don't ever underestimate the power of beautiful glowing skin. You need to take very good care of the skin on your face and body. If you have any problems, don't hesitate to see a dermatologist and get them taken care of. Keep a simple and strict morning and evening skin routine and your skin will thank you now and later.
6 Baby Your Nails
Getting your nails done is one of the best feelings in the world. Always keep your nails neat and well kept. Good looking nails are very attractive, so keep a small file in your bag in case you accidentally break a nail and keep your polish fresh and shiny.
7 Wear Perfume
People who smell good become 10 times more attractive. It reflects freshness and cleanliness. Keep a small travel size perfume, lotion or body splash with you at all times and use it anytime you need a quick refresh.
