KEEP IT YELLOW Ever wonder why candlelight dinners are so romantic? Thatís because men canít help but swoon at the beautiful woman sitting in front of them, thanks to the soft shadows playing on her cheeks cast by flickering candlelight. Yellow lighting is more complementary to your features compared to harsh fluorescent lighting. So whenever possible, appear in yellow lighting to look more enchanting. Why do you think stage actors always use yellow spotlights and not fluorescent lighting?
BE PHOTOGRAPHED ONLY ON YOUR GOOD SIDE Models know only too well about the importance of being photographed on their good side. Study celebrities and supermodels on the red carpet and notice how they always strike a pose on the same side when cameras are clicking. "I always focus on a modelís better side during a beauty shoot to bring out the best in her," says professional photographer Meng. Most of us are not born with the desired symmetrical face but we can always put our best face forward, literally. To find yours, pose in front of the mirror or better yet, snap a picture of yourself on both the right and left sides, then get your friends to help vote on your best side.
TURN YOUR BACK ON THE SUN This is especially useful when youíre out on a lunch date. Sit with your back facing the sun (choose a window seat) so that the sunís rays create a luminous halo around you instead of shinning on that zit. The sunlight behind you also adds an aura of surrealism to mesmerize your date!
WEAR YOUR JACKIE Os From the late Jackie Onassis to Angeline Jolie, famous women hardly step out of the house without their big framed sunglasses. Hot favourites are the Jackie Os (spotted on Katie Holmes and Victoria Beckham) and aviators (spotted on Angeline Jolie and Madonna). Worn in traditional fashion or pushed up to the crown to hold your hair back, it gives you instant movie-star glamour. There are also women who specifically buy sunglasses that sit well on top of their heads because they know it looks glamorous that way. Oh, and as if you donít already know, shades are great for protecting eyes from the sun, hiding eye bags and dark circles, when youíre too lazy to apply eye make-up.
HEELS UP Letís face it, thereís a very good reason why we subject ourselves to those bunions and achy calves- high heels make even the chunkiest of calves look lean and the shortest of legs look miles long. It adds height for elegance and enhances the fit of a pair of slacks or jeans. Plus, strutting around in stilettos helps exercise those muscles Ė and we love well-toned legs. Perhaps the most convincing reason is that stilettos create the illusion of longer, thinner legs on the wearer. "High heels give you a boost and slim the meatiest calves," says Lisa Norris, UKís TV celebrity booker and author of Get Glamorous. "We girls must view our bunions as our badge of glamour. Besides, one of the greatest pleasures of stiletto addiction is coming home at night, pouring a glass of pink champagne and slipping them off," she says.
