Help! How do I prepare my look for my speaking engagements?

As the saying goes when you look good you feel good… When you show up knowing your visual presentation is on point you perform better. Your visual presentation is closely related to your confidence and if it is on point it will assist (alongside great content and oral presentation) with ensuring you have a stellar performance.

Here are 3 tips to preparing your look for a speaking engagement

1. Have a clear vision of the look you’re going for and how you want to be perceived
Indecision will make you feel confused, frustrated and uncomfortable in your clothes. This will undoubtedly have a negative impact on your performance. It’s ok if you don’t immediately know the exact makeup/ outfit choices that you need to pull your entire look off but start preparing by at least getting an idea of the look you want.

2. Ensure your ideal makeup look is natural and complements your skin tone and outfit
Heavy or improperly matched makeup can be distracting and will take all the attention off what you say and place it on how you look. Make sure your foundation application is natural and that your makeup as a whole enhances your best features.

3. Hire help
Some speakers, coaches and women of influence in general struggle in this area because they either believe their visual appearance doesn’t matter or they refuse to get help thinking its unnecessary. Truth is… it’s necessary. We live in a society where 1st impressions determine how people perceive you. You want to be perceived as your BEST! There is an expert that can answer any question you may ever have including on how to present yourself successfully. Don’t be afraid to hire one that you can learn from, feel comfortable and grow with.

3 Questions Every Female Speaker Should ask Herself Before Going on Stage

As a speaker your visual presentation is JUST as important as your oral presentation and content! 

With the number of speakers constantly on the rise it’s important that when you go to  speak at different engagements you not only provide great content to your audience but you do so in excellence ensuring you are looking the part!

I’ve compiled 3 questions every female speaker should ask herself BEFORE going on stage to ensure she not ONLY shows up…. but, that her visual presentation is on point allowing her to make a great and lasting impression!

1. What is the environment?? Casual, Creative or Corporate?

Know your environment

Knowing your environment will give you an idea on their style of dress and that will be your clue on how you dress. The last thing you want to do is show up under dressed at a corporate function or overdressed speaking to students. If you’re unsure visit their website for clues on their dress code.

2. Who’s my audience? CEO’s, Business Professionals, Students, Children?

Know your audience

People want to know that you can relate to them so it’s IMPERATIVE that you know EXACTLY who you’re talking to. You want to show up looking like you know what your talking about and looking the part. When booking your engagements ask the question What type of audience will I be speaking to? Do your research to ensure you can APPEAR relatable. Remember this is ALL about LOOKING the part!!

3. Am I overdoing it with makeup and accessories?

Less is more!

The goal is to look like yourself with a little more UMPH!! Your makeup should give you an evenly smooth complexion but you also want to look polished and NATURAL. Heavy overdone makeup can give off the wrong impression and too many accessories can be flashy and SUPER distracting. So be sure to keep it light…. Literally!

Asking yourself these 3 questions will point you in the right direction to ensuring you are presenting your entire self at your best!!!

Putting your best face forward


 

There’s nothing worse than not having the time to look your best everyday!! Who enjoys or even wants to go out when they’re not 100% comfortable with their looks. Whether it’s your clothes, makeup or hair as women looking good is what we do. Here are 3 tips to ensuring you put your best face forward every day!!

1.       Plan your look the night before

Whether you have small children or love to sleep in, trying to prep in the morning can be the most daunting task of them all. This will cause you to opt for anything just to get out of the house in time. Do yourself a favor… Plan your look in advance. There’s a saying that goes a little something like this… “Prior Planning Prevents Poor Performance”.. And so it goes even with how we step out the house.

 2.       Alarms are your friend

Set an alarm that warns you when it’s almost time to go. I have an alarm set to ring about 15 mins before I have to leave my house. Not only to keep me on track and moving at a rate that will ensure I’m on time, but also to keep my daughter on track.  

3.       Simplify your makeup routine

Make sure that your makeup routine is simple but still enhances your beauty. Choose your favorite features and enhance them instead of trying to glam it all at once. If you’re an entrepreneur or corporate professional less is really more.  Save the highlight and contour for evenings or weekends when you have more time.

There you have it!! 3 simple tips to ensure you can put your best face forward everyday.  Share your tips in the comments below!!

Eyebrows… Eyebrows… be all about them!!

Eyebrows may seem unimportant, like they’re just a barrier to stop dirt and sweat from getting into your eyes, but………from a beauty stand point they’re so much more!!

In my opinion eyebrows are one of (if not THE) most important features and keeping them well-groomed is important. Here are 3 reasons why:

1.       They frame/ Shape your face

 2.       They bring out your eyes

 3.       You can go foundation free and still look great with well- groomed brows

 Check out this tutorial on how to shape your brows in 4 simple steps:
