Dear Purple Reader,

Many times in my life I had to change my makeup because I needed a perfect look, don’t blame it on me, the need to look good is innate in every human being. When a woman improves her appearance, an amazing thing happen, people begin to pay attention to her, seek her company, ask her opinion, she becomes more confident hence, making here look even better.

Makeup is the most important of a woman’s beauty as it is the face that projects our deepest essence. Our face interacts with other people, when we speak, when we laugh, or make facial expressions of any kind. Our face is where people look when they intend to know us or make sense of our being. It all boils down to a careful selection of items in your makeup kits and then just watch how doors will open for you.

Beauty is the secret weapon of success and the skillful application of makeup is the secret weapon of beauty. All women deserve to be appreciated, respected, and admired. But did you know that women who are perceived as ‘good looking’ are awarded prestigious jobs and receive higher pay than women who are perceived as ‘plain’? Now you know.

Every woman is beautiful and every woman can be way more beautiful!

It is imperative to know that your makeup in this context has to do with getting the right caliber of traits together that will lead you to your biggest dreams. It is the momentum that will lead you to your success. What then should your kit contain?

  • The Mirror

A mirror is an object that represents, reflects and shows something honestly. The only way you can look good is through careful evaluation of yourself through what I term “The Mirror”. What are your SWOT – Strength, Weakness, Opportunity and Threat, state them all. Focus and develop your habits. Write down items of habits, chores, hobbies that you are good at alongside those you are not good at.

Take stock of the characteristics that people constantly tell you that you need to improve on. Be sure to deal and improve on them. If you aren’t sure what traits you need to work on, think about the skills for which people give you the most compliments. This evaluation process enable you select the right caliber of people on your team.

  • The Foundation

If the foundation be destroyed what can the righteous do?

The Holy bible asserts that the fear of the Lord is the foundation of true knowledge (Proverbs 1:2). He alone gives the flawless beginning and the perfect finishing.

Our God Almighty is the beginning and the end and without Him it is impossible to do anything.

Proverbs 3:5-6 reads; trust GOD in your heart, do not depend on your own understanding, seek him in all you do and He will show you which path to take.

  • The Highlighter

The highlighter can be likened to the law of attraction. This sort of makeup when applied correctly help accentuate and highlight attractive features. Hence, your willingness and ability of attracting the right people to you is paramount.

Men do not attract that which they want, but that which they are.

Mentoring is therefore key. Get a mentor for yourself – people you admire in your field or area of specialization. Learn all about them and identify ways they got to their present status. This will help you become the leader they are.

  • Eye shadow

This implies that you be a visionary person with positive outlook. The bible records in Habakkuk 2:2-3 that you write down your vision (a decision for a future time) that you may run (work toward its attainment). In clear words, having a list of what to do next is paramount to your success – He who fails to plan, plans to fail. The ‘what’s next’ is the reason to keep waking up. The ‘what’s next’ is the momentum for all successful people. However, your stated vision may seem slow in coming, wait patiently for it will surely take place.

Time is a factor you must consider while applying this kind of makeup, you have to be time conscious, and you must strategize. Your strategies must be able to set you into action. Avoid procrastination.

There are arrays of makeup that can help build you positively and I would love that you share them with us. Remember that the right makeup makes you feel more powerful and ready to face any situation. The more enhanced you are, the more you feel good.

Be the kind of woman you want to be today by taking on the right makeup!
