We all try to look better than we are and we use celebrities as a standard for beauty. Who else are we going to emulate? Celebrities are picture perfect in our minds and we base our fashion trends on them. Is it fair to do this? I don’t know, but we do it anyway. That’s how civilization has functioned up to this point and that’s how civilization will function in the foreseeable future. All I can hope to do is help you look like your favorite star. Here are 5 simple tips to look like a celebrity.
If you want to look like a star then you’ll need to visit the gym much more frequently. Celebrities work very hard on their physique and it shows. However, it doesn’t come easy. You need to spend a good chunk of your time in the gym on a daily basis. Sure celebrities have trainers and nutritionists that you don’t, but don’t let that be an excuse. That just means that you’ll have to work twice as hard to look just as good. Rome wasn’t built in a day and neither will your body. It takes time, effort and patience.
You look at the smooth glistening skin of a celebrity and wonder how that came to be. Your mind immediately jumps to ‘Botox’ and that’s the end of it. It’s not that difficult to achieve beautiful skin without the help of such procedures. Ever heard of moisturizer? It’s a much better alternative to Botox. Use it frequently to keep your skin moist and smooth. Drinking generous amounts of water also hydrates your skin. It’s the little things that you need to pay attention to. If you cover the basics right you won’t need to resort to anything else.
Style Your Hair
Everyone has a bad hair day, even celebrities. However, when they walk the red carpet their hair looks perfect. This is all thanks to a team of hair stylists that are always at their beck and call. There are certain celebrities like Jennifer Lawrence who opt for a more modest haircut. A short crop isn’t exactly out of your budget and it happens to be “in” these days. For men’s hairstyle what better example could there be than Leonardo DiCaprio? He looks like a smooth and sophisticated gangster from the 1930s. No wonder he’s beating George Clooney when it comes to women.
Visit the Dentist
Many celebrities have struggled with oral health problems and many of them have got dental work done. Tom Cruise is a classic example of this. He got braces when he was at the peak of his career. That just goes to show that it doesn’t matter how old you are you can still care for your teeth. If you have stained and crooked teeth you can’t win people over with your smile. And smiles are what celebrities are known for. Take a trip to the dentist and get your teeth fixed, because a beautiful smile can open many doors for you.
Mark Twain once said, “Clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society.” Whether you like it or not your clothes speak for you. People tend to take you more seriously when you’re dressed to the nines. You don’t need to take it to an extreme level like Barney Stinson, but it doesn’t hurt to wear a suit on important occasions. And we don’t just mean weddings and funerals. Wearing a suit on your first date will improve your chances of going out on a second one. Celebrities wear fine attires whenever the opportunity presents itself.
The image that celebrities have created for themselves isn’t out of your reach. All you have to do is use the tips mentioned here. These tips cover all avenues that lead to the perfect makeover that you so desperately desire. With this new and improved image you’ll find your life to be more fulfilling. Who’s ever refused anything to a celebrity? And now that you look like one, no one’s going to refuse you anything either. However, you must keep in mind that with great power comes great responsibility. And by the way, that quote came from Voltaire, not Stan Lee.
