Let’s Celebrate the International Day of Women’s Confidence!

 IWM

If you’re not sure how to celebrate the International Women’s Day, how about making this 8 March really special and celebrate it as an International Day of Women’s Beauty Confidence? That’s how we do it in Notino!

Beauty and confidence are of course a hot topic. For some reason we’ve started to equate beauty with the “perfect” girls in “perfect” Instagram photos and in advertising. Meanwhile we doubt ourselves and put ourselves down for fear of coming across as too proud. Wouldn’t it be so much better if we could appreciate our own beauty and celebrate it? Let’s love ourselves!

Beauty Without Retouching

True beauty was never about perfection. It’s secret is uniqueness and the confidence each of us can have in herself. It might sound like a cliché, but think about what self-esteem really means. It’s about appreciating yourself, being aware of your strengths and skills, being proud of what you can do. It is the ability to see ourselves and like what we see. Self-esteem is pure love, love for ourselves the way we are, here and now, without Instagram filters and retouching. Because the real beauty always has and always will come from the inside.

Being Yourself

It might sound ironic on a blog about beauty products, but... we don’t actually need any help being beautiful. What we need is to enhance our personal style and self-expression, show something different every day depending on our mood. Every one of us can have so many different faces, one more beautiful than the last! The only question is, which face you want to wear today and what look will make you feel confident? Don’t worry, we have some ideas:

The Business Woman Look

International Day of Women’s Beauty Confidence

When you love your work and you’re proud of your success, celebrate your “business self” with the right business look. All you need are a few quality products you can rely on to get you through the most stressful days at work.

A firm handshake and a confident eye contact will make a great first impression. Especially when you use a good nail varnish such as The Nutcracker and The Four Realms by OPI. And don’t forget about the right perfume. Bottega Veneta is the right choice for an elegant businesswoman!

After a night spent with your newest project, you’ll appreciate a rejuvenating serum such as the Lancôme Génifique Advanced. Expecting aparticularly stressful meeting? Trust a good concealer, for instance theTouche Éclat by YSL, and a long-lasting foundation Lancôme Teint Idole Ultra Wear with SPF 15 which comes in 35 different shades! Finish your look with the amazingly hydratingYSL: Rouge Volupté Shine Oil-In-Stick lipstick. It lasts for ages and will make your lips feel velvety smooth…

The Active Woman Look

Do you see yourself more as an outdoorsy type who enjoys running or practicing new yoga positions? Or maybe you’re not really into sport, but you simply enjoy light makeup that lets your features shine through. Either way, we have some tips that will help you keep your look light and natural.

With Nuxe Body shower gel as your everyday body wash, you’ll feel light and natural every day. You will also need a good anti-perspirant to help you deal with your daily activities. Biotherm Deo Pure Invisible is paraben-free and ensures 48-hour protection. Finally, the DKNY Women EnergizingEau de Parfum will make you feel like yourself even when after you’ve completed your daily run...

Treat your skin to some Nuxe Aquabella toner which is suitable for all ages. If you’re looking for a foundation to fit in with your lifestyle, try a good BB cream such as the L’Oréal Paris Wake Up & Glow Bonjour Nudista. You can also swap your lipstick for a nourishing lip balm, for example the Bioderma Atoderm. You won’t believe how smooth your lips will become!

The Rebellious Woman Look

IWM

Are you someone who always goes against the flow? Then you might just be a rebellious woman, and your beauty needs something really special, something different and interesting.

You can often spot a rebellious woman from the distance by the colour of her hair. The brighter the better, even when it’s just a temporary colouring product like the L’Oréal Paris Colorista Washout in Aqua! Do you enjoy changing up your hairstyle all the time? The Remington PROluxe S9100 straightener will make it even easier.

Show off your confidence with Burberry Her, a fragrance that perfectly embodies your wild spirit, just like its rebellious ambassador Cara Delevingne! When choosing your makeup, try the spicy shades of Makeup Revolution Life On the Dance Floor, accentuate your cheeks with the Pro HD Brighter Than My Future highlighters and don’t forget about a daring bold red lip courtesy of Lancôme Matte Shaker!
