As much as I love beauty and advocate the need to indulge in treatments to stay looking and feeling super confident there are definitely instances when a girl has simply gone too far. Those telltale signs? Well here are the top eight sins that scream: enough is enough!
SIN NUMBER 1:
FAKE TANNING WITHOUT REMOVING YOUR PREVIOUS TAN IN ADVANCE.
Ladies please know that applying a new tan without the removing the old one first will make you look either yellow or orange. And neither is appealing unless you wish to look jaundiced, ill or like some weird alien. It also dramatically increases your chances of skin pigmentation. So please exfoliate the first application BEFORE you apply YOUR NEXT TAN. The double dipping rule applies not just to food but to your skin too.
SIN NUMBER 2:
CHANGING YOUR EYE COLOUR TO SOMETHING WHICH SIMPLY DOESNT SUIT YOU.
I know, I know, we have all fantasized about having a different eye colour; emerald green or even deep turquoise blue. But in this instance curiosity will definitely kill the cat (or at the very least scare anyone that approaches you). In this instance the natural colour of your eyes is what makes you unique & highlights the rest of your complexion. So avoid using extreme colour contacts as this screams “fake” to anyone unfortunate enough to fall under your alien-like gaze.
SIN NUMBER 3:
Unfortunately too much filler does not make you look like Angelina Jolie but rather like the infamous Catwoman, Jocelyn Widenstein, a classic case of how too much plastic surgery can go wrong.
SIN NUMBER 4:
DARK LIP LINES OR TATTOOS ARE NEVER A GOOD LOOK…
They also don’t make your lips look bigger – to the contrary they make you look like a clown.
SIN NUMBER 5:
LONG ACRYLIC NAILS WITH FUNNY SHAPES AND PATTERNS.
Here are three words to describe this look – tacky tacky and tacky. Please get rid of them.
SIN NUMBER 6:
In case you are not familiar with this new “art” vajazzling is the act of applying glitter and jewels to a woman’s nether regions for aesthetic purposes. Like all art however it is open to serious interpretation. I seriously doubt this is the best first impression you want to give.
SIN NUMBER 7:
SHAVED EYEBROWS AND/OR PENCILLING THEM ANY THICKER, HIGHER OR LONGER THAN THEY NEED TO BE.
Your face is supposed to be subtly highlighted NOT drawn all over as if a toddler went crazy with their crayons. Needless to say this is another big no no…
SIN NUMBER 8:
LETTING YOUR ROOTS GROW OUT
Sigh…is there anything which screams to the world “I can’t be bothered anymore” more than this? You might be lucky to get away with it if your natural colour isn’t too different but why begin something if you can’t deal with the upkeep? If you have bleached blond hair, you absolutely need to get your roots done regularly (unless you want to look like a lower class harlot). If it is all too difficult then just go natural.
