I think we’ve all been there: those days where we wake up and just don’t feel our best. Maybe it’s an overdue hair wash. Maybe we wake up with bags under our eyes or an inconvenient skin breakout… When these days happen, it can feel like nothing we do makes it better. Foundation? No use! Concealer? Not helping! And sometimes... we don’t even need to give anything a try, to know that we aren’t going to be able to tame that mane. Days like this make me want to lock the door and just wait it out!
But what if there was a way to look great, even when all the odds are against us? All it takes is a few simple items to ensure you get out of the house with your head up no matter what.
Lipstick is the savior of the makeup world. Even if this is the only thing going near your face that day, it can save the show. That’s because lipstick is bright, bold, and rejuvenating. Even when working alone, it can brighten your face, detract from breakouts, and make you look glam. As if that weren’t enough, you won’t need to agonize in the mirror. Getting this right is as easy as applying seconds before you leave the house. Even better, lipstick ensures that you look like you’re done up. Okay, it might not see you through a day at work. But, it will at least give you the boost you need to get you to the shops.
Sunglasses are my go-to safeguards. With a pair of these to hand, it’s possible to hide a multitude of issues. You can cover those bags, and even hide the fact that you haven’t done your makeup for the day. Pair these with lipstick, and no one but you will know the secret issues the day is throwing your way. Of course, you don’t want to be that person who wears sunglasses on a rainy day. Reminds me of an 80’s song… Not to mention – it’s a clear giveaway that you’re hiding something. But, by stocking up on options like these designer sunglasses, you ensure that you have a go-to the moment the sun shines. That’s sure to see you looking glam no matter how bad you felt when you woke up.
Of course, none of the pointers mentioned so far are going to help you with bad hair. That’s where hats come in. These are one of those accessories every girl needs. Even when you can’t put your hair up because it’s so out of control, a hat can take care of things. By sticking one of these on before you leave, you can tame the mane. Opting for hats which match your outfits could even see these complimenting your look. With a bit of luck, your hat wearing could even flatten that crazy hair by the time you get back home. Just like that, you can show your hair who’s in charge.
