The Eyes Have It!

The secret to beauty is in the eyes. .Realtors especially need to look put together and pretty to have that competitive advantage!

Cleopatra knew it: The secret to beauty is in the eyes. Not those of the beholder, but yours.

Research shows that as far back as 3,000 B.C., the women of Egypt were enhancing their eyelashes and lining their eyes. The goal then was the same as it is now: To make the eyes appear larger, wider and brighter - which creates a more alert and youthful look.

But how do you go about doing that?  Does a smokey eye work for you or is your coloring and eye shape more suited to a softer eye.  What colors make your eyes appear brighter and enhance your natural coloring?  Should you use liquid, gel or pencil to line your eyes and should you go all the way around or just do the outer corners?  The answer to these questions are as individual as you are.  Brown does not look great on everyone.  Some women look much better in grey's and navy's than they do in black or browns.

If you have drawers full of products that you don't use or if you have makeup that doesn't really make you feel fabulous when you apply it then I suggest it is time to update your makeup.  An easy to follow lesson will show you how to take your makeup from drab to fab in no time flat with colors that you will use up and come back to replace - not winding up in the infamous dud drawer!

Spring is the perfect time to freshen up your makeup bag, get rid of what isn't working and get a pretty new look!  Whether you're a stay at home mom, a corporate crusader, or a working girl, there is a perfect look to fit your lifestyle.

I especially encourage Realtors to update their business cards.  If your picture looks dated and your makeup is not picture perfect your cards are working against you instead of for you. People do judge you by the picture on your cards - make sure yours is wonderful, that you look like someone who is put together and successful - who wants to do business with a schlub? 

Come in for a makeup lesson, get your hair done and go get professional pictures taken so you can have an edge in a competitive field!  Then go out for a fun night looking and feeling beautiful!  Better yet - you can recreate it whenever you want to land that listing!
