Unfortunately i will not be attending this years best blogging conference due to other commitments. But lets work together here and share our tips for looking our best!
Red carpet ready
Some of our finest moments are caught naturally, playing with our kids, hugging a loved one, laughing with friends. But sometimes there will be occasions where you are asked to pose. Maybe at weddings, on a night out or for a family portrait.
The power of a bad picture is undeniably strong. In fact, it can be depressing, devastating, and confidence-crushing. Even if we are happy with the way we look in the mirror, just one glimpse at an unflattering photo can ruin our day.
Ladies and fellow bloggers there are always important blog functions to attend and with Britmums Live 2014 coming up I thought I would share some tips on how to get you red carpet ready!
If you know you are going to be snapped by the paps on your evening out a heavier make up base will be required. Camera lighting can make your skin seem paler than normal so do not be afraid to add an extra sleek of blusher to your cheek bones and a sweep of gloss on top of your lipstick. Like I mentioned earlier the average person tend to look washed out in everyday photos, a subtle glow makes a world of difference. If you’re showing skin, a light spray tan can make your legs, arms, shoulders, and neck look slimmer. Personally I cannot stand spray tan, the feel or the smell. So for me it would have to be a really special event to wear it. If you are good with spray tan then go for it. The safest way to get a glow.
Mouse adds volume to fine hair, serum adds calm to frizzy hair. Mousse for fine, serum for thick. Some updos can make your neck look longer and thinner, buns, braids, or ponytails that are too tight can create harsh angles, causing your face and torso to look larger.
Wear things you know are flattering. Wearing a block colour is a good way to go, as is shape wear if you opt for a tight dress or gown. I love my shape wear and I got it for a bargain at TK Maxx!
Have a fab time Ladies and I cannot wait to catch up on all the pictures and shenanigans of Britmums Live 2014!
Stay gorgeous xxx
