The reality is that your appearance matters. You want to look in the mirror and love the person you see. Even if you don’t love everything about yourself currently, know that you have the power to change this thinking.

There are steps you can take to modify and improve your overall look and style. With a few simple tweaks, you’ll be on your way to feeling confident in your skin and ready to take on new challenges. Don’t be afraid to do some experimentation, focusing on altering the elements and features that you have control over and never underestimate your ability to transform.

1. Get Inspired

You can improve your look and obtain an authentic sense of style by observing the fashion choices that other people make. It’s an excellent way to figure out your likes and dislikes. See what people are wearing and learn what they’re doing to boost their confidence levels. Look through magazines and browse blogs. Create a Pinterest board with ideas and inspiration for outfits. Take the information you learn and then come up with a game plan for what you want to change about your appearance and the way you carry yourself. It’s a wise idea to do your homework before you start investing in changes to your appearance.

2. Develop a Makeup Routine

Another way to improve your look and style is to apply makeup each day. Watch video tutorials of people who have features similar to you and learn techniques to look your best without spending a lot of time. You’ll also want to invest in all the right products such as mascara, blush, and an eye palette. Take an extra ten to fifteen minutes during your morning routine to put on makeup, and the difference it can make is surprising. It’s especially helpful in covering up blemishes or dark circles under your eyes. Keep it classy looking most days and be willing to put on a bit more makeup for a night out or a date night.

3. Update Your Closet

Improve your look and style by taking the time to revamp your closet. Go through your wardrobe and get rid of or donate what you no longer wear or that’s outdated. Make room for new additions that are trendy and show off your figure nicely. Confirm you have the essentials and then have a few extra pieces that you can throw on for special occasions. Don’t be afraid to swap clothes with your friends if you’re the same size and enjoy the same style. While you’re at it, be sure to update your accessories as well.

4. Eat Healthy & Exercise

Part of the puzzle when thinking about your overall look and style is your physical appearance. Therefore, commit to eating healthy meals and exercising regularly. Drink plenty of water for healthy and radiant skin too. You’ll start to drop unwanted pounds and may be able to fit into clothes that didn’t look good on you previously. You’ll feel better inside and out and you’ll have more natural energy when you consistently take good care of yourself.


  1. After I read your article, I tried to take more time with my appearance when I went to work last night. 10 more mins does make a difference but I feel myself returning to default mode. Bare minimum, get out the door, was wearing lipstick for a while, but then I stopped.

    Curious what prompted this post from you?

    • Thanks for your feedback! I was very into makeup and spending a lot of time getting ready before I had my son. And now that he’s almost 3, he’s finally getting to be a little more independent, and I realized just how much of a difference 10-15 minutes can make. It also makes me feel much more confident when I look in the mirror.
