Many fashion magazines bombard people each day with various charts and lists, telling them what the current trends are and what techniques they can use to look smarter, prettier, skinnier, or where to buy the best shoes and clothes. If you are a guy, you probably aren't getting the right information you want, and if you are a woman, you are probably exhausted from the amount of information you are getting and the advice magazines bombard you with. Because of the vast amount of information out there, most people know the most basic things to look well groomed or elegant, such as wearing famous brands, getting hip haircuts, etc. However, this amount of information may lead to people overlooking some of the most basic and simple things they should do right away to polish their everyday look and enhance their appearance.
Condition your lips and skin
Flaky skin, ashy knees and chapped lips don't look pretty, furthermore, they can make your skin look tired and old. This especially applies to cold weather conditions. If you are wearing lipstick constantly, then make sure that you make them moist-do this because chapped lips are even more visible under makeup. Make sure that you keep your lip balm near you or in your car, so that you can apply it whenever you go somewhere or when you go to bed at night. Once we get older, our skin can get darker and it can make us look even older, so consider getting a suitable skin lightening cream if you have this problem.
Take care of your nails
Make sure that all of your nails are similar in length and well shaped. There is nothing worse than uneven nails or ragged nails. This especially applies for women-I know it is hard to grow long nails but just because one of them broke, you can't assume that nobody will notice it standing out from the rest. If you like polishing your nails, make sure that your everyday colour is just a bit brighter than your skin tone. By doing this you, will achieve a professional and clean look while your hands will be very elegant. Consider wearing rings also. Don't bite your nails! This is something that repulses many people and, for many, it's a line that they cannot cross. Cut your nails regularly and use a nail file to make them soft and gentle.
Clothes and colour
It is very important that your accessories and clothes are from a more or less similar colour family. Never, and I mean never wear things like black shoes, a brown suit and a white belt, since this is something you just don't do. Always make sure that your shoes, belt, and watchstrap are about the same colour. Sometimes differently colored shoes and purse can be a thing, however it must be well thought through and planned out. This will attract attention to these two things and that's why it is important that they are fairly new and quality items for people to take notice of.
Take care of your shoes and sneakers
Always make sure that you clean your sneakers and polish your shoes when you go out. The most common thing people forget is to check their shoes for dirt or scuffs before going outside. When you polish your shoes, you will show other people that you care how you look. No matter how well looking or expensive your shoes are, they will look horrible if you do not take care of them.
In the end, I would like to add a few more thoughts. If you understated how to use things like perfume, aftershave or cologne, you will make a clear sign that you have put in extra effort into your appearance and this can have a positive effect both on the people around you and on your own mood. Beauty is not all about shoes, clothes and things like that. It is also about how you behave and what signals you send out to other people. Try to fill yourself with confidence on a daily basis by doing things you are good at and smile a lot when you are talking to people.
