Finding your secondary energy type

dyt_four_typesIf you’ve been through the Dress Your Truth section of my beauty and style blog, you’ve hopefully been excited about how knowing your type helps you find your perfect style and you’ve determined what your primary energy type is. (If you’re still unsure, let’s talk; I’ll be glad to help!) But did you know that most of us also have a secondary energy type?

Maybe you read Carol’s book or watched the videos and found you identify with two different types. Perhaps you had a hard time deciding on your energy type because more than one appealed to you.

Show your makeup who’s boss with Z Palettes

eyeshadow_looseOkay, I’m going to share a little pet peeve of mine. It seems like whenever you buy eyeshadow in collections of more than one or two colors, you always end up with at least one color you love and use so much, you quickly run out of it and one color you absolutely hate or will rarely use.

New year, new you

ralph-marston-stock-do-today-improve-tomorrow-6t1xAh, the new year is upon us and it’s time to review the old year and think about changes we’d like to make to better ourselves. Although losing weight and stopping smoking are two of the most common New Year’s resolutions, I hope you’ll take some time to think about how you can improve and refresh your unique beauty and style.

It may seem superficial, but we know that our appearance impacts our personal, social and professional lives. We also know that how we feel influences how we look and vice versa — a phenomena called beauty self-esteem. Although we’d like to believe “what is inside counts most,” scientific evidence, as well as common sense, tells us that an appealing appearance positively impacts our lives.

Here are five beauty and style resolutions for 2017.
