Working on looking better and younger

I will start with a confession that I rarely read fashion magazines and I am not naturally good at fashion or make up. It did not bother me as much in the past as younger people can get away with more mistakes. However, getting older means it takes more effort to look good.

Obviously, staying healthy through exercising and the right diet is number one priority. But I also started to pay more attention to clothes and make up.

Being a bit of a studyholic (if there is a term like that), I decided to educated myself on the subject Firstly, I listened to the experts (like personal stylists and make-up artists). This is a great short-cut to sort-out your main wordrobe’s mistakes. Keren Beaumont is a great help in these matters and she is back at the club with her free talk on personal style May 12 at 10:30 (details here).

Next step, I felt I needed to get a bit more knowledgeable on the subject myself. There are a few books around such as Capsule Wardrobe: Discover Your Personal Style, Smart Wardrobe: A Guide To Discovering Your Personal Style, French Style: Dress Chic and more. The list of timeless staples for the capsule wardrobe and advice on suitable clothes depending on the body type are very useful.

The book that has helpful “dos” and “don’ts” on how to look younger is How Not to Look Old by Charla Krupp. I loved her list of make up items and I started using some straight away (such as NARS liquid blush). There are also plenty of good Youtube tutorials to get visual tips (e.g. Make Up Mistake to Avoid by Ali Andreea).

If you are ready to embrace a journey to update your look, I will see you May 16 at the club.
