My Everyday Personal Beauty Guide

As woman we often feel the pressure to look a certain way.  In the world we are living today, a pretty girl is the one in a Victoria's Secret runway and not the one with glasses reading a book.  Although this definition of beauty isn't true, if you don't feel comfortable in your own skin no one can do it for you.

When you feel "ugly", that is the moment for a healthy change of mind and also in your image.  In this post I would like to share some tips that I personally practice to feel good with myself.

First of all remember that we all carry our own baggage of insecurities.  Even the "most pretty" girls experience this in a daily basis.  Why do you think that today Facebook likes are necessary to feel approved?

Being honest, you are going to struggle a lot feeling confident in your own skin if you don't fix what you don't like. When you are exposed to media, magazines and Victoria's Secret fashion shows just to name a few,  you cannot resist the urge of comparing yourself, detoxing later with the positive body image memes, to finally recover from this media bombarding about living barbies. 

You already know that all of these women are man-made and that they look normal when they wake up every single morning.  From hair extensions to Photoshop, the beauty industry manage to sell this perfect woman image that doesn't exist.  To be honest, in the whole world there are just a few people that are born as Barbies and Kens.  

With all of that being said, this post is about things that I have been practicing for years in order to feel good about how I look.  These tips can help you in those moments in where you don't feel "pretty enough".  I was inspired to write about this because I saw on Facebook a comment of a girl saying that she was tired of looking everywhere and everything she saw was gorgeous "perfect girls" walking all over her Campus meanwhile she was feeling ugly. 

This is the post sent by the girl and it was posted in this page.
My answer to this girl was that apart from having a beautiful heart, it was really important to take a good look in the mirror and ask: "What can I change?" Because we as women, need to feel and look good.

It is part of our nature. 

I gave her all of the tips listed below.


Before doing anything to your face, shape your eyebrows. Go to a beauty professional in your city or at your own risk, take a look in YouTube and learn what shape is best for you.  Learn how to maintain a beautiful shape. If you ruin your eyebrows, your face will look weird and no makeup is going to make you justice. 

Your Hair

Taking care of your hair is so important!  Even without makeup you will look good with your hair looking good.  That's why you must keep it clean, and that's why you should get a good hair cut that goes along with your face angles. You can take a look of my favorite hair products here.

Your Nails

Feet and Hands

Keeping your nails clean and polished is a must. Nails are our letter of presentation.   Grab your favorite nail polish and bring some color! Keeping your nails clean and pretty makes you feel feminine.

Skin Care

Part of feeling feminine and beautiful evolves having our skin in an optimum healthy state.  Drink the water you need (women 9 glasses, Man 13) so your skin can glow and look healthy. Eat your veggies and don't eat junk food too often. 

Remember that makeup is not to cover but to enhance your features. If you have a breakout, fight it, do not cover it.  Makeup makes everything worse and chances are that you are not going to feel pretty in your own skin.

Also, remember to take care of your legs.  I like to use wax instead of a razor because the skin feels smoother and it gives a healthy and very good looking appearance to your legs.

Trim Your Mustache

I do not know why women have to deal with a mustache.  It goes totally against nature and it does not look cute at all. There are laser treatments, wax and also tweezers to get rid of it.

Watch Your Weight 

If you do not like your body, don't feel ashamed to say so. Nobody can judge you for feeling that way.  If you know that your weight makes you feel insecure go and do some exercises.  No sugar words can make you feel this sensation of freedom when it comes to body image.  There is nothing better than feeling amazing and in control.


It is very important to learn how to do your own makeup. Start with the basics and learn how to apply and combine them correctly.  Keep learning and practicing until you take your makeup routine to the next level.  Makeup can be a powerful tool to enhance your features if you use it correctly.

Take Care of Your Teeth 

Your smile says a lot about you.  If your teeth are very yellow try some natural bleaching products.  Youtube and Pinterest are full of tips so you don't hurt your wallet in the process.  Also, remember to floss daily and choose well known products when purchasing mouthwash and toothpaste.  Believe me, good products really make the difference and are key for a better oral health. 

This is not about looking fancy buying expensive stuff.  This is about boosting your confidence and feeling amazing in your own skin.  Invest in yourself  and you won't regret it.

Hasta la próxima,
