How To Be Beautiful: A Dad's Perspective

Three Tthings that You Should Do Right Now

Since the dawn of time, men have been mesmerized by women’s beauty.

When Adam first laid eyes on Eve, he was amazed by the gorgeous being who stood before him. Mark Antony gave up all the riches of Rome to bask in Cleopatra’s splendor. And Estella Warren’s good looks have adorned countless dorm room walls.

But beauty is not reserved for the mother of humanity, Egyptian queens or super models. All women are beautiful in their own way and have the power to make men swoon.

If you want to tap into that power, here are three things that you should do right now:

 Wear Clothes That Fit

This statement may sound like a no-brainer, but it’s not. I’ve seen too many women sabotage themselves by wearing ill-fitting clothing. Start by removing from your closet all items that are too short, too long, too baggy, or too tight. When shopping for clothes, always try them on. Even if you’re sure of your size, try on the clothes because brands fit body types differently. Finally, find yourself a tailor. No off-the-rack garment will fit your body perfectly, but a talented tailor can make it look like it was created just for you. A woman wearing a well-tailored outfit exudes a beautiful confidence that is undeniably alluring.

Be Confident

There is something absolutely appealing about confidence. When a confident woman enters a room, people take notice. She walks tall, smiles and makes eye contact. She commands respect and entices with her charm. You can be this confident woman by doing one thing: having faith in yourself. If you believe that you are beautiful so will everyone else.

Emphasize Your Eyes

People say that the eyes are a window to the soul and I believe it. I love to gaze into my wife’s eyes because they reveal so much about her. I always advise women to make their eyes the focus of their makeup routine. Apply enough makeup to allow your eyes sparkle, but be careful because if you apply too much, you’ll end up looking like Tammy Faye Baker and that’s not a good look at all.

These simple tips will help you look better, feel better, and transform yourself into the Phenomenal Woman you were always meant to be.
