    For straight haired people, wash your hair every 2-3 days. Washing less frequently will lead to greasy hair, but washing it too frequently will deprive your hair of it's natural oils. Comb it daily, for a healthy shine. For curly haired people, wash your hair only as needed (product build up, after gym etc.) and use conditioner often. Curly hair loves moisture, if you have naturally curly hair, then do not comb it when dry, because it will make it frizzy.

    What items you choose to wear isn't nearly as important as fit and colour. The colours of your clothes should look good on you as well as look good together. Don't wear any piece of clothing that doesn't fit you. Sizes are just numbers/letters, you're going to look and feel much better in clothes that fit you, even if that means going up a size or two.

    Don't bite, rip or pick your nails! If it's a habit for you, get an anti-bite polish from the drugstore and keep it on all the time until your habit stops. Keep your nails trimmed and filed to a reasonable length. If you don't like coloured nails, use a coat or two of clear nail varnish. If your nails are painted touch them up in the evenings and remove the polish as soon as it gets beyond the point of touch ups. Make sure to take care of your cuticles too - use cuticle oil (coconut or olive oil will do) vaseline or some hand cream.

    Makeup - Keep it natural! Wear foundation if you want to. If you're self conscious of your skin, use some light BB or CC cream, or a tinted moisturiser. Use concealer on any spots, a little bit of powder to keep the shine away, and some mascara and lip gloss. You can curl your lashes if you want to. Save eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick for special occasions.

    Accessories - Earrings, rings, necklaces, and bracelets are up to you. Just be sure not to overload yourself, if you're wearing big or dangle earrings keep all other accessories to a minimum. If you're going to a special occasion, remove one accessory before leaving the door in order not to go too far.

    Your makeup (if you wear it) should be easy to do quickly. All you need is brown eyeshadow,black liquid eyeliner, lotion, lipstick, mascara, eyelash curler (if wanted) and pencil eyeliner. Be sure to slather some lotion on your entire face, even your eyelids! First for makeup apply the brown eyeshadow under the crease of the eyelid. Then open your eye and apply it to the crease of the lid. Do to both eyes. Now apply your pencil eyeliner to your waterline on both eyes. Apply the liquid eyeliner right next to your lashes. Curl your lashes first before applying mascara because applying mascara first makes your lashes brittle. Apply mascara. Do not open your eyes until mascara and liquid eyeliner is dry! Apply the lipstick now. Remember to use lotion, toner and facial cleanser everyday. Always remember, no matter what, that you will always be beautiful. You don't need to try to change yourself. You are you, and all that really matters is that you're happy!
