How To Look Pretty In 10 Minutes!

Updated on May 24, 2011

Got 10 Minutes? Try These Tricks!

You don’t need to spend half the day in front of the mirror prepping up and looking beautiful. A few minutes are all it takes for you to look instantly pretty.

I don’t see any harm in spending an hour trying to curl your hair or trying to look good. But the truth is, the people you want to impress are the ones who won’t really notice or acknowledge your painstaking effort in looking good.

Do yourself a huge favour and look pretty for yourself and not for others. So if you have 10 minutes, try the following tips:

Tip 1: Wear a bright-colored dress.

Bright colors are not really for everyone, I know. But if you pick the right bright color, it can accentuate your skin and your best features. Try matching the color of your eyes for starters.

I don’t know about you but I always feel bloated and ugly whenever my period is near. Nothing I put on seems to be comfortable. My fool-proof way of making myself look and feel good is donning a pastel-colored dress.

Tip 2: Accentuate your eyes.

Your eyes are the windows to your soul. It is easy to look ugly, tired and drained if you are sporting dark rings and bags under your eyes. You will need a concealer to hide those bags and dark rings.

Now heat up your eyelash curler using a hair dryer. Curl your lashes for an instant way of perking up your peepers. Line your eyes with a brown eyeliner to achieve that natural look.

Tip 3: Make your skin look healthy and glowing.

Dull-looking skin can make you look tired and stressed out. If you have at least 10 minutes to spare, you can try using lemon juice. Wash your face and massage lemon juice on your skin. Massage it gently to stimulate blood flow.

If you don’t have lemon juice, try using mashed papaya. They work in sloughing off dead skin cells without being too abrasive on your skin. Lemon juice and papaya also has instant brightening properties so they work in putting a healthy glow on your face.

Tip 4: Dance.

Yes, dance! Dancing is a form of exercise that can allow you to sweat out impurities and improve the production of feel-good hormones. Hormones like serotonin and endorphin can actually improve your mood and can put more color and more glow to your skin. So go ahead and dance to your favourite upbeat music.
