Ever heard the poem, “Sugar and spice and everything nice; that’s what little girls are made of?”
This is a cute poem little girls are told when they are young and it helps them to feel “girly”. But what are females made of to help them feel feminine?
Of course, still sugar and spice, but also a whole lot more!
Let’s discuss ways in which you can feel more feminine and present yourself as more feminine.
When you think of women who are beautiful and feminine, what is the first thing you usually notice besides their face?
Probably the way they are dressed.
It is true; clothes can make you or break you and a fashionable wardrobe goes a long way when it comes to appearing feminine.
** Wear flattering clothes **
Choose clothes that flatter you and your figure. Throw out those old concert t-shirts and baggy jeans. Replace them with pieces that bring out your curves, are stylish, and in fashion.
Frilly and lacy accents can turn a plain Jane blouse into a sizzling, sassy top.
Not every woman enjoys or even likes wearing a dress. This is no problem if you have a few pair of tailored slacks, cute capris, or rockin’ shorts for the summer.
Have fun and match them with adorable flats. For bedtime, trade in those flannel nighties for some smooth, satin lingerie.
** Freely accessorize **
Accessories can turn dull into darling and fair into fantabulous!
Accessorize with scarves, belts and jewelry. You can add bright, glitzy items that spice up your outfit, but do not go overboard.
Switch those clogs and loafers for a cute little pair of ballerina slippers or strappy sandals. Heeled shoes and boots will make your legs look longer and sexier.
** Accentuate your beauty **
Beauty is more than skin deep, but makeup can accentuate your beauty and can help you to feel more feminine.
Now that you have updated your wardrobe and you look more feminine, it’s time to add to your femininity with a touch of make-up. When it comes to make up, remember the golden rule: less is more.
Use a light coat of foundation with just a smudge of blush. Apply mascara to bring out your gorgeous eyes.
Regarding eye shadow, experiment with shades and styles that compliment your facial structure, eye color and hair.
Wear a lip gloss for an all day shine or lip stick for that extra pop. There’s nothing less feminine than the dreaded “facial hair”.
There are several options available to fit everyone’s budget when it comes to getting rid of the unwanted facial hair around the lips, chin, and eyebrows.
Waxing, tweezing, and hair lighteners all work well. Make sure you maintain regularly to keep a smooth and feminine look.
** Update the hair **
If you have had the same hairstyle since high school, it is time for an updated look. Even short hair can make one look feminine and sophisticated.
Ask your hairdresser for a cute cut that accents your facial features, shows off a little of your personality, and is easy to keep.
Choose a style that allows you to wear it several different ways.
You can have a nice professional look for work, yet work a little magic with styling product and a hair straightener to create a sexy, sleek hairdo for a night out on the town.
** Treat yourself to a mani/pedi **
Take care of your finger and toe nails. Do you have nails that are weak, thin or do not grow?
You can still keep them in pretty shape with a clear coat of polish. Fake nails are also a possibility, with regular touch-ups to keep them attractive.
You can make large fingers appear smaller by applying a coat of polish, leaving a small edge of both sides of the nail. This gives the appearance of longer, slender fingers.
Do not forget your toes. Now that you are wearing those pretty little sandals, show off toes that are painted. Treat yourself to a pedicure along with that manicure.
Being feminine isn’t all about your clothing, the latest trends, hair styles and pretty looking nails. Your attitude, personality, body language, and confidence are important factors.
Women should always hold their heads high and stand tall and proud walking into a room.
Smile brightly, make eye contact, be self-assured that you are a beautiful woman who not only cares about herself, but those around her.
Being a woman and showing the feminine side of you is a complete package. You can be as feminine as you want to be, as there are really no right or wrongs here.
Be yourself and be confident in who you are. By applying some of these tips you will be well on your way to feeling more feminine in no time!
