To find an outfit that looks awesome almost immediately, you need to know what suits your shape. If you don’t know what suits your shape, you should do some research right now. You can go against the grain if you want to take a risk, but this post is about looking awesome fast and you can’t go wrong with an outfit that fits.


[highlight color=”purple”] Wear a Colour You Love [/highlight]

If you wear a color you love, it’ll show. My favourite color is green right now, so I always feel good wearing it. You might prefer pink, purple, blue…maybe even black. Some people swear by the color black as it looks chic, mysterious, dressy, and casual all at the same time. I admit, you can’t go wrong with black. It works for any event or situation, but it’s important to avoid being basic in black with some statement jewelry or colorful handbag.

Wearing your favorite accessories will enhance your look perfectly, and they’re your favorites for a reason. Regardless of whether you prefer religious medals or signet rings, wearing your best accessories is the best thing you can do to complete your look. Just don’t wear too many at the same time. The key is to balance out your look carefully.

[highlight color=”purple”] Apply a Bit of Makeup [/highlight]

You need to look awesome fast, so you haven’t really got the time to put on too much makeup. Get your essentials and slap them on quickly. I usually wear a tinted moisturizer, concealer, mascara, and eyebrow pencil. This gives me a fresh faced but polished appearance. My favorite “get ready in a hurry” accent is a fabulously dramatic lip color. You can put it on in the car or even use the selfie camera mode on your phone as a mirror!


[highlight color=”purple”] Mess Up Your Hair [/highlight]

You can’t expect to have a polished look if you have no time. So work your messy hair look and mess it up even more. Spray in a tousling spray, use your fingers to mess it up, add volumising powder…something to give your hair a bit of life as quickly as possible. You can even backcomb it, but make sure you don’t go out with tangles that are too visible. That’s never a good look.


[highlight color=”purple”] Stop Caring [/highlight]

Yep. Last step: stop caring. The less you care the more awesome you look. Nobody focuses on your flaws and imperfections as much as you do anyway, so just try not to care. In fact, you could probably miss out every step in this guide and just come straight to this one.

Well, it’s time to get ready! The clock is ticking TGIFguide readers. We can’t wait to see you looking your best in no time. Now… Go!
