We all want to enhance our best features when we go out. We all want to look and feel our best. There is a certain level of confidence that exudes out of a woman who knows she put herself together and taken the time to present herself to the world with her best foot forward. This doesnt only happen with our mood or personality, but also with the way we look. Think about a time when you went out and you knew you had on your favourite dress and that little pair of heels you had stuffed in the back of your closet for months and months; you have done your hair, put on a spritz of perfume (natural or store bought) and you took the time to prepare your skin prior to going out. Did you feel more or less confident than you did on a day you went out with unbrushed hair and your old sweats that you usually wear around the house?


How we present ourselves to the world, whether we like to admit it or not, plays a role in how we are perceived by the people around us.


So how should we do our makeup? What looks can we achieve without going overboard and risking looking like a clown?
