The New Year is the perfect time to see how you are coming in your Beauty Plan, according to our resident expert Ruth Murrin from Good Housekeeping. Objectively you should evaluate yourself and see how you are coming along. I did just that. Murrin's steps were:
Know exactly how you look now. Use mirrors, lights, and snapshots to do this
I think I know. Snapshots are very telling.
Determine your best points and how to show them off
Hmmm . . . I have gotten compliments on my hair and legs, so I would have to go with those. I particularly love my hair color (auburn which unfortunately is starting to go white).
Acknowledge your worst points and figure out how to correct them.
Too many. Where to begin? Basically everything except my hair color.
Know your ideal and try to figure out how to get there
My ideal is the lovely Rita Hayworth, of course! But how does one become a Love Goddess?
Some things to correct, according to Ruth:
Overweight or distressing thinness
Thick waist and diaphragm
Frizzy, lifeless hair
Stringy, oily hair
Downward lines on an older face
Wrong tone of polish
I could definitely work on all of these, but the no make-up one is probably my worst fault on the list. Here's to new beginnings!
