A smart shopper will not buy clothes on impulse but instead she knows what’s best for her body type and shapes. Your body shape determines which clothes look best on you, so that’s where you have to start. Find the clothes that flatter your figure and wear them. Add trends if they suit your style.

STRATEGY #5

Polish yourself with simple makeup, and maintain personal hygiene

A recent report by WGSN, a London-based fashion news service, revealed something that image consultants have known for years: that wearing makeup increases a woman’s chance of getting a job more than the usual criteria of a strong resume, obvious intelligence, and a pleasing personality.

In fact, the article, based on survey results from 100 UK companies, reported that:

“One in four managers admitted they were more likely to hire a woman who wore makeup than one who did not, despite political correctness and the multitude of laws against workplace discrimination and equal job opportunities.”

If you are always in a rush, and prefer to have your makeup done in 5mins, here’s how

1. Use a tinted Moisturizer

There are several moisturizers on the market that tint your skin a bit and even out your skin tone, like a base makeup, without the additional layer. In fact, in warm climates and during warm weather, many women opt for tinted moisturizers instead of base makeup to give them the evenness without the heaviness.

2. Use a Touch of Mascara

Mascara is a fast, easy way to open up the eyes and brighten the face. Many women I know use only mascara before they head out the door every morning. It was reported that Duchess of Cambridge used this Revitalash Mascara (not available in Malaysia) on her wedding day ..

3. Dust on Some Loose Powder

If your skin is clear but tends to get a bit shiny, dust on some loose powder to absorb the oil and diminish the shine.

4. Wear Lipstick

 If you have nice lips and want high impact, try a dark color that works nicely with your skin tone. People will watch your mouth when you speak.

COMMUNICATION

STRATEGY #7

Communication is no doubt a complete package to your PERSONAL IMAGE.

It could be verbal or non verbal communication and it makes tremendous impact to your personal branding if you know how to present it well.

Start with creating your first Elevator Speech (20seconds) and present it to your family members, practise and practise how to say it well and confident.

Because, remember, the first encounter when you meet someone at a dinner or party or seminar, you will be asked , “WHAT DO YOU DO?” 

Then, you start scratching your head or searching for words to explain… sounds familiar?

* More on “Elevator Speech How To..” in our next articles…

Then comes, learning the art of Body Language – your hand gestures, smiling, sitting position while interview and negotiation meeting with client etc

Reading body language

A research was held at the University of Pennsylvania to determine to what extent a person’s body language can affect the impression people form of him. The shocking result the research came up with is that body language was found to be more responsible for the impression people form of you than your words.

The following are the detailed findings they came up with:

  • 55 percent of the impression people form of you is based on your postures , body movements and gestures
  • 38 percent was based on the tone of your voice (tempo and frequency).
  • Only 7 percent was based on what you say.

This means that a total of 93 percent of the impression people form of you is determined by your body language (which includes both Body gestures and voice tone) while only 7 percent is based on the words you say.

In other words this means that if you learned how to read body language you will be able to interpret people’s emotions with a 93% accuracy
