Men Especially Need To Know Their Best Colors And Accessories

Women talk with each other and share anything new and exciting that they’ve found. Women tend to shop with their friends and discuss and critique everything. Men tend to go it alone.  Just think about it. You go to meet your best friends at the local bar and watch your favorite team. Which of your friends is most likely to say, “Hey, Bro! Love that new polo shirt! You look great in that color!” Exactly! Men just buy dress clothes and casual clothes with abandon.

Get Comfortable In Your Own Skin

Beauty, to me, is about being comfortable in your own skin.  That, or a kick-ass red lipstick.  ~ Gwyneth Paltrow

 

I really wish it were that easy!  A little lipstick, maybe some hair gel and, voila!  Instantly fabulous!  But, in reality, it all starts with your skin.  Healthy skin is attractive skin. No matter what your size, sex, shape, or heritage… people typically see your face first. We need to work with what the Creator gave us.

What Does Beauty Mean to You?

Though we travel the world over to find the beautiful, we must carry it with us or we find it not. ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Your interpretation of beauty greatly depends on where you come from and/or where you live.  Beauty is subjective and very personal.  For example, in Koine Greek, beauty was associated with “being of one’s hour.” Therefore, a fruit hanging on the vine ripened to the perfect moment for consumption was considered beautiful.  But, a young woman dressing and trying to appear older or a mature woman dressing and acting as if she were younger, would not be perceived as beautiful.  In Attic Greek, hōraios had many meanings. This includes “youthful” and “ripe old age.”   My own interpretation of beauty includes people of all ages.  Each year of your life can be your “best year” where you feel the most beautiful and attractive.
