Fashion and Beauty
Fashion and beauty are two industries that are forever intertwined as fashion can be used to express beauty and vice versa. Depending on the occasion, fashion and beauty can go hand in hand, regardless of gender.
What Is Fashion?
Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, lifestyle, accessories, makeup, hairstyle, and body. Fashion is a distinctive and commonly habitual trend in the style in which a person dresses. It is the prevailing styles in behaviour and the newest creations of textile designers.
What Is Beauty?
Beauty is the quality present in a thing or person that gives intense pleasure or deep satisfaction to the mind. It is also a combination of qualities, such as shape, colour, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.
The Relationship of Fashion and Beauty
The relationship between fashion and beauty is one that can be both empowering and difficult. On one hand, fashion can be used as a form of expression and creativity, allowing people to embrace their unique style and feel confident focusing more on self-expression than trying to conform to the idea of “perfect beauty”. On the other hand, beauty products and fashion trends can enforces stereotypical ideas of what is considered “attractive” and “desirable” which can be difficult for some people to navigate.
Styling Your Beauty Look
When styling your beauty look, here are some tips to keep in mind:
- Start with clean, moisturized skin: Washing your face with a gentle cleanser and using an oil-free moisturizer can help create a smooth, even base upon which to create your look.
- Find the right foundation: Selecting the right shade of foundation can help give you a natural-looking complexion.
- Experiment with different eye looks: Whether you like a dramatic cat eye or a natural, minimalist style, you can try different looks to find what works best for you.
- Accentuate your features: Highlighting your individual features, such as your cheekbones or eyes, can make your look stand out.
- Choose a lip colour: Selecting a lip colour, whether it’s bold or subtle, can help bring your entire look together.
Make Fashion and Beauty Your Own
At the end of the day, it’s important to remember to make fashion and beauty your own. You don’t have to follow the trends and you don’t have to conform to the ideals of beauty that are presented in the media. Be creative and be confident in your look, and remember that you don’t need to be a fashion or beauty magazine cover to be beautiful.
