Maria offers up tips on just about everything you can imagine, from makeup application to organization techniques, to wardrobe selections, to creating worthwhile friendships! My personal faves offered up were her makeup and styling techniques. I’m pretty much an idiot when it comes to them both. I've learned a little bit over the years with the help of some friends, but I’m still pretty clueless when I don’t have their input at my fingertips.
My favorite tip: Find a celebrity you admire for their look and style. Recreate their look by tweaking a few small things to fit your preferences. Try to find someone who has similar tastes, skin tone, and hair types. My choice: Blake Likvely. I mean, really… the girl always looks gorgeous. She’s blonde. I’m blonde. She has thick hair. I have thick hair. Our skin tones are similar. Her style is impeccable. Her makeup always looks fantastic. Yep, Blake Lively is my girl. (P.S. How did I miss that she was dating Ryan Reynolds? LOVE!)
Maria suggests ripping out photos of your celebrity of choice in magazines whenever you find them. Keep them on hand to recreate at a later date. Try to find photographs in many different social situations. Then, you can attempt to recreate their look for different events in your own life (ie. NYE Party, an outdoor date, work, whatever.)
Here are few pictures I found of Ms. Lively that I want to replicate at some point.
Who would be your celebrity inspiration?
