When you flick through the pages of magazines or browse the latest runway shots, it’s easy to feel envious. These perfect women seem to have it all: the looks, the body, the hair, and the lifestyle to boot. You might feel inadequate next to them, but you don’t have to. You can feel and look as good as a supermodel with these easy steps.
No one has ever had a long career in modelling by sustaining unhealthy practices. While starving yourself might get you thin, it will never keep you healthy for long – and longevity is important to be a real supermodel. Take a tip from Victoria’s Secret Angels and emphasise a toned and healthy body over a size 0. Eat well: you can have the biggest portions in the world if your plate is full of fruits and vegetables. Go to the gym, or exercise at home. Keep your body strong as well as nutritionally balanced.
Wear Your Clothes
There’s an expression that you should wear your clothes, rather than letting them wear you. A supermodel is in control of her style and knows exactly what suits her. Know your designers – if your budget is a problem, look for sample sales, buy things just as the season is ending, and focus on staple pieces that will be in fashion year after year. Make sure that you always look great because you know how to wear your clothes.
Adjust Your Look
If there is something about your look that is holding you back, don’t forget that you have the power to change it. If you really aren’t happy with your appearance, it’s a good reason to have a corrective procedure. You will feel happier in yourself, and you will look more the part too. If your bent, misshapen, or huge nose is something that you feel is holding you back, then fix it!
Focus on Skin, Hair, and Nails
It doesn’t matter how much make-up you put on if your skin isn’t healthy underneath. Treat your skin well and you should be able to go out without foundation and still feel amazing! The same goes for your hair and nails. Practice a good diet and use products to ensure that your hair is sleek and shiny, and your nails grow long and strong. Bitten nails and bloody fingers are never a good look, and nor are split ends or oily foreheads.
Work on Posture
Your posture is very important for looking the part. Make sure that you always stand tall – no matter how tall you really are. Don’t slouch or let your shoulders roll forwards. Walk with grace and focus, as if you have a string attached to the top of your head holding you up. Keep your chin high and put one foot in front of the other with care. Once it becomes second nature, you will have a posture to be envious of.
Looking like a supermodel is about more than just being born with good looks. Just ask those models who are doing well with unusual features. It’s about maintaining your look and treating your body well!
