When you’re in a relationship, you couldn’t care less how other men saw you because you were already in a relationship. However, now that you find yourself on the other side of that coin, you’re struggling with the reality of it all. You’ve fallen into the habit of dressing comfortably instead of fashionably.
You enjoy going out of the house without an ounce of makeup on, even though you have dark circles under your eyes. You from the relationship is hanging on for dear life, and it’s killing your love life and your confidence.
We have four incredible bits of advice that can help you boost your confidence and help get your love life back on track. It all begins with:
1. Rely on your friends for a pick-me-up.
Whenever you feel downtrodden, and your ego needs an instant boost (especially when you are trying a new makeup routine or wearing a new outfit that you don’t quite feel comfortable in), you need to have that group of friends who will always tell you what you need to hear. These friends will tell you when you’re doing something right, and they will tell you when you’re doing something wrong. However, along with the task of telling you what’s wrong, they will help you get right. That, my friend, is a friend worth holding on to.
2. Be bold and update your hair style.
Sometimes we get stuck in a rut, and we think we won’t look good in a particular hair color or hair style. The truth is, you wouldn’t know for sure unless you try! The power of a great hairstyle has been known to turn a shy kitten into a fierce lioness all within a matter of a few hours. Okay, maybe that’s pushing it, but hey… It’s only hair. What have you got to lose?
3. Try changing your make-up routine or color palette.
Maybe you’re one of those women who doesn’t use any makeup except for a lip balm and maybe some mascara. Maybe you’re someone who wears only neutrals and think the bold color is a dash of brown eyeliner. Wherever you fall on the makeup spectrum, try something new! Be bold with a red lip. Go glam with a smoky eye look and winged liner. Take a few tips from Kim K. and contour your face to show off those beautiful cheekbones. If you aren’t savvy with make-up, start off small and watch a few videos on YouTube.
4. Change up your wardrobe and add something that makes you feel sexy.
One of the quickest ways that you can change how you feel about yourself is by changing your clothing. Haven’t you ever put on a piece of clothing that instantly lifted your spirits? If so, you know exactly what we are talking about. When you wear that article of clothing, you feel like you can take on the world! If you’ve never experienced that, we fully recommend going shopping and searching for that outfit, those jeans, that blouse, or even that bra. You’ll know what it is when you find it, and honey, with that sort of confidence boost, the whole world will know it too.
