10 Tips to change your thoughts on beauty

1. Beauty is beyond physical – Beauty is not just a physical experience, but a psychological one as well. We all tend to think of beauty as a skin-deep issue, all about how we physically look. But research tells us that perception of what is deemed attractive and unattractive is much more complicated. Why do you think some beautiful women say, “I’ve never thought I was pretty”? Yes, even beauties like Uma Thurman and Michelle Pfeiffer have drawn attention to what they consider flaws. Similarly, there are women who may not be your typical image of beauty, yet when you ask them they say they are quite confident in their looks. Serena Williams never tries to cover up her unconventionally muscular physique: in fact, she flaunts it and somehow it makes her more appealing. What makes people feel attractive goes well beyond our physical self. It runs deep, much deeper than the eye can see.

Tip #3 for the Modern Woman

February 25th, 2010 — 12:24pm

Here is another tip we used during our modeling days that continues to be helpful to us today. We hope you find it useful too.

3. Reinvent Your Look As models we had to constantly change our ‘look.’ It taught us to be capable of adjusting our appearance to the circumstances. Instead of feeling anxious about change, have fun as you reinvent a look with each stage. Those short skirts might not work, but other styles may. Letting go of your former self-image doesn’t mean neglecting yourself. Try walking instead of jogging; take yoga, in place of spin class. Adjust your attitude as you adjust your look.

1. Show Confidence and Pride Inside and Out

Decide one aspect of yourself that you feel is attractive and project it. Feel it on the inside and then show it on the outside. When we were modeling, we knew that models who walked into auditions with an air of confidence tended to get the jobs! It wasn’t about being the prettiest—everyone was. Or about being perfect—no one was. It was about how you carried yourself into the casting room.  Some models were known for their great legs, thick lashes, or long necks and used these assets to feel beautiful. Sometimes only a model’s hands or feet were considered model material. Instead of focusing on features you don’t like…..

Tip #2 for the Modern Woman

Here is another tip we brought from our modeling days that you might find useful to feel and look attractive as your looks change. Tell us what you think.

2. A Radiant Smile Can Work for You

There were models we knew who were not perfectly shaped who had successful careers because of their great smiles. Think of a baby’s smile. Does anything bring more pleasure to the eyes of others than that spontaneous toothless grin? Sure, we can whiten and straighten our teeth, but regardless of how they look at any particular moment, smiling with a sparkle in our eyes goes a long way to convey beauty.

Today we will be adding a new feature to our blog. It’s called “Tips for the Modern Woman.” These include tips that once were useful to us as models that we have found even more so now as our looks are changing.
