I'm a glamour girl all the way around so here are my fav things to make me feel glamorous...
1. EAU DE PARFUM
On making an entrance: Cleopatra
Perhaps the most famous ruler of Egypt Cleopatra, was well versed in the power of scent. She was lavish in her use of perfume. After the assassination of Julius Caesar, she left Rome to become the queen of Egypt. There she greeted Mark Antony on a ship with perfumed sails. Cleopatra's arrival was announced by clouds of perfume before her barge came into view. Now that is what I call an entrance!!
On sleeping: Marilyn Monroe
"What do I wear in bed? Why Chanel No. 5 of course”.
On a future: Coco Chanel
"A woman who doesn't wear perfume has no future."
On revealing yourself: Christian Dior
"A woman's perfume tells more about her than her handwriting."
On happiness: Anon
"Happiness is like perfume: You can't give it away without getting a little on yourself."
On glamour: Taj Acosta ;)
A little perfume behind the knees, behind the neck...these are sensual places you least expect, but oh do they ever leave a trace of your allure! I never go to bed or leave home without a spritz of perfume, it's like being naked!
I used to think champage was bitter, until I had a fabulous glass one night that changed my relationship with it forever. It's sophisticated and crisp, with seductive bubbles that make every glass a true luxury. Try a glass of brut the next time your out, and it doesn't have to be Perrier-Jouët!
(warning: if you are a man, i.e. my husband you may want to skip this part! For girls eyes only, we need our secrets!!)
Dearest dolls, I don't care what field your are in, what attire you are required to wear on a daily basis, everyone one of you should have something you can wear underneath those clothes that is mind blowing. I'm not saying every day you should wear something amazingly lacey, but 3 out of 7 is a good place to start! Trust me, you'll feel like a pinup. Now get out those gorgeous pieces you've been saving in the back of your drawer and start using them now!! I digress.
6. WINGED EYELINER
You've got this down right? I don't need to do a tutorial?
Take something off, blah blah blah. More is more, be different and unique. Wear what you like and rock it.
8. TOUCH MY HAIR WHY DON'T CHA
Soft hair will make you feel glamorous in no time. Apply some shine serum and a fabulous smelling mousse or frizz creme and you're in business.
9. THE QUEEN HERSELF: LBD
Every girl should have one.
Confidence is very glamorous. It's appealing and provacative. When you have confidence in your appearance, style, makeup, body, smile, etc., you can't help but attract people to you. Keep it glam!
