When we have a big event, such as a wedding or a graduation, we all want to feel our best on both the inside and out. Confidence comes from that special feeling where you enter a room and don’t feel intimidated by anyone or anything. Looking your best can truly help you to feel your best from the outside in and give you that little boost you need. Here’s how to look amazing and feel confident at that big event.
Get The Blood Pumping
Perhaps an hour of exercise won’t give you instant results when it comes to your physique, but it does give you a great glow and flood your brain with the feel-good chemicals it needs. On the morning of your big event, partake in your favorite form of physical activity. Perhaps you attend a hot yoga class or maybe you do something as simple as going for a walk around the neighborhood while listening to your favorite songs.
If there’s ever a time to treat yourself, it’s when you’re getting ready for a big event where you want to make a great impression. There’s nothing necessarily wrong with the clothes you have and perhaps you even already own the dress that you want to wear. However, brand new clothes can give us a major confidence boost. Or perhaps you’re considering full body shapewear for a flawless finish if you’re wearing a bodycon dress (or any dress for that matter). If your budget allows for it, treat yourself to a new dress or a new pair of heels.
There’s a reason why the spa is one of the top destinations for people who are dedicated to self-care. A professional facial, massage or body polish can do wonders for how we both look and feel.
Of course, not everyone is able to afford a visit to a pricey spa. Thankfully, an at-home spa day can be just as effective as the treatment that you would receive from the professionals. Draw yourself a luxurious bath containing your favorite bath bomb or bubbles. Cover your hair with a deep-conditioning treatment and apply your favorite face mask, allowing both to sink in while you soak. When it comes time to shower, use your favorite body scrub. After soaking, your skin is especially soft and primed for exfoliation. When you get out of the shower, be sure to apply both a face and body moisturizer to lock in all of that moisture.
Style Your Hair and Do Your Makeup
Even if you’re not the best at beauty tasks like styling your hair and applying makeup, you can accomplish some simple looks with a little help from the internet. Search for makeup and hair tutorials online. These videos will walk you through how to achieve different looks step-by-step. If you’re somewhat of a novice, opt for simple looks that you know you can achieve. A complicated up-do might be too hard for you to do at home, but everyone can master giving themselves a simple blowout.
Breathe, Stand Straight and Smile
Confidence ultimately comes from the inside. Before you walk through the doors at your next big event, take a deep breath and straighten your posture. Our body language can really influence how others perceive us and how we feel. By standing up straight, you won’t only exude an air of confidence, but you’ll start to feel more confident as well.
Above everything else, remember to smile. There’s nothing more attractive to others than a happy, smiling face.
