The Right Make Up
Loud make up is a definite no-no. You want people to look at you and admire you for your poise and your seemingly effortless attempt
at elegance. You donít want people to look at you because you obviously donít know how to coordinate your make up with your outfit.
Make up should be very well-blended and the more natural you look the better. Even if you use a lot of make up it should be very well
applied and have no smudged areas. Your hair should also be neatly in place, held together by bands and pins and hairspray. Draw
attention to yourself by not drawing attention.
The Right Perfume
An elegant perfume isnít loud and overpowering. A mild scent is preferable. A good perfume should be lingering, yet not overpower
oneís senses so choose your scent well.
I know that not all of us are interested in looking elegant or even getting that understated elegant look for that matter. But for
some of us, thatís how we like to dress, and it helps to know the tricks of the trade. Also, even if this isnít your regular style,
it might come in handy, especially if youíre attending a hoity-toity society event. Another occasion for which your skills of
dressing with understated elegance might come in useful is for a job interview or even for regular work wear.
The basic key to remember is: Donít overdo it. As long as everything is balanced and coordinated, you should be fine!
