The civilized society today gives a lot of importance to “looking beautiful”. While I think it is good to look beautiful, how one has achieved that beauty and its relevance to his/her profile is equally important. Women are admired not just for their physical appearance but also her inner qualities.
By inner qualities I mean her kindness, compassion, right judgment, being unselfish and more.
At the mention of inner beauty; one woman who instantly comes to my mind is Mother Teresa! She is one of the most beautiful women in this world. She is beautiful because of the way she lived. Her unconditional love for mankind, her empathy and compassion were the pieces of jewelry she wore everywhere. She was as beautiful as her work and will always remain so.
At the same time, the fact: “First impression is the best impression” implies that it is the outwardly appearance that is going to make the impact. Like it or not, your boss will judge your competence and trustworthiness in the first second you meet him/her. People get to know your inner qualities only after interacting for some time. So the necessity of a pleasing outward appearance cannot be negated, more so if your work atmosphere requires interaction with colleagues.
In addition to good sense of humor, ease of interaction, confidence, or something feminine, the right kind of attire, jewelry and makeup can add to success in career.
Attire, jewelry, makeup… these words bring the picture of Usha Uthup to my mind. I happened to see her from a close distance and watch her perform. Not only was I mesmerized by her songs but also by her attire… Kanjeevaram saree, wrists full of bangles, gold jewelry, string of jasmine in hair, and finally the bindi with Bengali alphabet ‘K’ for Kolkata… a kaleidoscope of color and textures. That is her style statement!
Her charm has transcended all barriers of caste, language and nationality. The confidence she exudes makes you fall in love with ‘life’ all over again! She is a people’s singer. Shut your eyes; imagine her, do you want to change her image? She looks beautiful the way carries herself and her performances are instant hits, crowds swaying to her tunes.
Flashy or unflashy, with good amount of self confidence, your attire, jewelry and makeup becomes a part of your personality, your signature.
There are plenty of reasons to look good and wear jewelry. The reasons have to be understood so that there is no mismatch of occasion and appearance. Plan your attire, makeup and jewelry accordingly, you too will be as beautiful as your work just like the woman in the video below. Light and unflashy, she does a smooth winning presentation. So the trick is: Take care of yourself, look presentable, eat healthy, think positive, be happy! For there is no cosmetic for beauty like happiness!
