How do you know what your style is? Why is it important? What if I don't have a style? Where do I even start? I have so many different styles in my wardrobe, I'm confused... 
 
It is said we wear 20% of your wardrobe 80% of the time. I have no idea who said it or even who made the statistic up but I reckon it’s pretty accurate amongst the women I come across as an Image and Colour Consultant. 
 
Quite often my clients have got a wardrobe stuffed full of clothes but only ever wear the same few items. Sound familiar? Don’t worry, you’re not alone. It’s very easy to get stuck in a rut and to wear the same old clothes week in, week out. 
 
The other thing that happens is that you’ll maybe buy something while you’re out shopping just because it catches your eye. You get it home but then don’t know what to wear it with. It’s quite easy to end up with a wardrobe full of clothes this way but still feel like you have nothing to wear. 
 
You’ve got a night out with your mates planned and it sends you into a state of panic because you have no idea what you are going to wear. It’s stressful. So what do you do? You go shopping and buy something in a panic, an impulse buy. And this then adds to already stuffed wardrobe of clothes… 
 
It doesn’t have to be like this and if you’re ready for change there are a few steps that you can follow to help you take the stress out of getting dressed. Following my tips will help you avoid the despair of standing in front of your wardrobe that’s rammed with clothes and thinking ‘I HAVE NOTHING TO WEAR!’ 
 
Do you know which colours to wear that will accentuate your eyes and enhance your natural colouring?.A top tip is to echo your eye colour in your make up if you want to be sure the colours suit you... 
 
How do I choose foundation? 
 
There are so many different types of foundation to choose from where do you start? 
 
3 Main Things to consider: 
 
1) Price - how much are you prepared to pay? 
 
This will determine where you start your search and the brands you might look at. E.G if you don't want to spend more than £15 there is no point going to the 'scary lady' counters. Also, bear in mind however helpful the sales assistants are their job is to SELL. They are probably going to recommend all kinds of complementary products that you 'need' to make your foundation last longer, appear smoother etc. These things might be nice to haves but aren't essential. 
 
2) Coverage - light or heavy? Matte or dewy? 
 
Try a tiny bit of tester on the back of your hand and see how it covers your skin. How smoothly does it glide? As a generally rule the heavier coverage foundations don't glide as smoothly as the lighter ones and will have more 'stickability'. Check the finish in the light to see if the finish is matte or dewy - dewy will generally appear a lighter finish. Does it need a powder to set it? This is adding another step into your routine.
