Guest Contribution : Six Beauty Tips to Add Glamour in Women’s Grooming

Ever wondered why grooming is so important? You can have that perfect face and those envious curves to die for, but with a sloppy jeans and that 90’s hair-do you can lose out on a lot of things, you never thought you were meant to own in the first place. Beauty most obviously is about being your own self, nobody is asking you to be a plastic, but grooming is what enumerates beauty, it’s more like teaming that red belt with that little black dress. So here’s six beauty tips that would definitely add glamour to your lifestyle:

Sleep Well

The first and the most important beauty tip is to sleep well, for a minimum of 6-8 hours, that ways you would look fresh. It is important not to wake up with exaggerated dark-circles or puffed eyes, if you look fresh, that makes you feel fresh. So you walk into that board room looking just as good as you were may be two years back.

No Revelations

Women love attention, but it is important to attract the right kind of attention, you don’t obviously want to get mugged. So avoid revealing dresses under all possible circumstances, appear tact and not desperate. Wear properly fitted clothes, with body lines that suit your body-types. Wear what makes you comfortable and respectable.

Mmmmm… Fragrance

It is pivotal for a woman to smell nice, you cannot go out there looking like Angelina Jolie and smelling like a mule. Obviously, not everybody can afford the Chanel No 5, but that does not mean that none of the other perfumes are worth it. Pick out a fragrance that defines you as a lady- summary, sweet and naughty. Avoid perfumes with strong alcohol content and do not apply them directly on skin. Oh and your neck and that wrist, mandatorily requires a sprinkle before a night-out.

 Accessorize it Right

Accessories play a very important role in defining you. Mix and match is a concept which hardly ever goes wrong, but remember do not end up looking like a junk-box. Keep it minimal. It is not always mandatory to accessorize yourself, however a sling bag and a belt is hardly something one can go wrong with.

The Hair and the Make-up

One needs to have an extremely good understanding of how much is too much. The hair and the make-up should be minimalistic and totally based on the place you are supposed to be at. Creating that messy up-do can bring out oomph in the evening party, but would give straight from the bed appearance in the office board-room, not what is expected. For hair, the safest is keeping it straight or rolled into a tact bun, and for daily make-up a little shimmer, soft kohl eyes and a little lip balm should do the trick. Again it’s not always about the skin care products you use, but how you use them.

Comfortable Feet

Lastly, it comes down to the saving grace. Your feet. It is important to moisturize them well, you don’t want them scarred and ugly. When it comes to the shoes you wear, make sure they are comfortable and suited for the place. It does not always have to be high heels, but cannot always be loafers. Pick a shoe that helps you glide and not just walk.

The beauty tips being there, and the skin care products to hide your flaws at their own place, always remember being beautiful is about being confident. Smile a lot, and everything else would just fall into place.

Brad, the Beautiful

 

Hiya Poutlings

We didn’t cover the story on our Facebook page (to my knowledge) but it was announced in May that:

Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel No. 5.

Brad Pitt is the first man to represent the famous perfume, and I just had one question : Will he wear nothing but a few spritzes of the alehyde, bergamot, jasmine, rose and ylang-ylang eau to sleep at night next to Angie, a la Marilyn “naked, except for a few drops” Monroe?

While it may seem odd to Brad Putt serve as a brand ambassodor duties for a perfume that typically recruits starlets like Catherine Deneuve, Ali MacGraw, Nicole Kidman, and most recently Audrey Tatou for that honour, I get it : No. 5 is an icon, and so is Brad Pitt… easy enough.

To cement that icon status and in honour of Brad Pitt’s Joe Wright ad for the perfume which debuts tomorrow, I’ve rounded up some of Brad, father of six most memorable beauty moments – both the good and questionable – to help further explain why putting the blondie boy wonder’s mug next to that classic, glass square bottle will likely distract, er, I mean, compel a great many women to indulge in a bit of spritzing.

1988

Aw, look how young he is, those dimples are sweet. A fresh faced Brad Pitt is the good boy version of Johnny Depp circa the late eighties 21 Jump Street – which shouldn’t be that suprising considering Brad had a guest spot on the show that same year. It was one of his first real parts after a few uncredited gems like “guy at beach with drink” in the 1987 version of the Hulk.

1992

Haha, sorry, I cannot help but look at this picture and laugh. You have got to love Juliette Lewis for proving that there is a fact in way to overshadow Brad Pitt’s attention hoarding handsomeness on the red carpet. Ot’s called skull-gripping cornrows. That little trick made sure no one noticed his ill-advised facial hair and while we’re at it, tuxedo accessories.

1993

Fresh off the success of a River Runs Through It, True Romance and Kalifornia, Brad debuts a serious surfer boy look : long golden locks, a sun-duppled complexion and that errant chin hair, clearly forgotten in the rush to get to the beach.

1994

The legends of the fall.

1994

After some astounding screen time spent playing Tristan Ludlow in Legends, this happened. A straggly, Cobain-esque bleached bonde mop offset by a goatee. Remember the nineties? ha ha ha

1997

When Brad met Gwyneth. Apparently, many females made a mad dash to the hair salon to request Paltow’s Sliding Doors chop – and Brad joined in on the bandwagon and got one too. Not only did their haircuts match, so did their precisely placed golden highlights… Hands down this has to be the best moments in visual couple-morphing, ever.

1999

Brad’s transformation into his next realtionship with Jennifer Aniston did not involve mimicking her hairstyle. Jennifer’s SoCalifornia roots did manage to rub off, though, whith his spiky cut and that goatee once again.

2004

It took Brad long, but he got there,, the shorter buzz cut does wonders for focussing even more attention to his blue eyes, and the most major development here is that the goatee has disappered, for now at least.

2007

A slick Brill-creamed comb over, clean-shaven face and a beautiful lady on his arm = wining.

2012

A slick Brill-creamed comb over, clean-shaven face and a beautiful lady on his arm = wining.

You’re welcome.
