How to look put together when you feel anything but…
1. Keep the hair simple with protective hairstyles & 15 minute do’s
I love protective hairstyles such as passion twist because it’s literally a getup and go hairstyle which is super convenient on those days I want to be cute without touching my hair.
I also have a video on my 2 simple 15 minute hairstyles! You can watch that video here:
I love protective hairstyles because they’re low maintenance and help aid in hair growth. I currently on a journey to grow my hair and have been using techniques to grow my hair such as herbs.
2. Keep the face and makeup easy
My simple makeup routine includes 4 things: Brow pomade for brows, Mascara for lashes, Concealer for dark circles and a lip product to add some color to my face.
If I’m going to be photographed a lot, I’ll go ahead and add lashes and liner. It doesn’t take me over 5 minutes to do these two (practice def makes perfect because, in college, it easily took me foreverrrrrr to apply a strip of lashes to ONE eye! lol)
3. Dresses and jumpsuits are a great go-to
Who needs a shirt, pants and possibly a belt when you can simply throw on a dress or jumpsuit and be done with it?!
4. Add a jacket to make it chic or chic casual
I love adding a blazer to a dress to make it look professional and polished or a denim jacket to a romper to make it casual! You can literally wear a blazer with your dress for work and then switch it up to a denim jacket after hours to make it everyday wear!
5. Invest in pieces that go with everything
I believe you should have at least 3 pair of shoes that will ultimately match anything: Black, tan and
When it comes to earrings, pearls and diamond studs also match pretty much everything. Keep it simple, sista.
I also recommend investing in some comfy heels like block heels and a few pairs of flats.
