When women have makeovers in the movies, it’s always a magical transformation in minutes. Think the Princess Diaries, when she suddenly has perfect, hair, teeth and skin. In real life, you would have to spend weeks or even months trying to change yourself. And probably go through several surgeries too. But even if it takes a bit longer, it doesn’t mean you can’t go through a total transformation if you want to. If you think it’s time for a change and a new haircut or dress isn’t going to do the job, you can give yourself a movie-style makeover. It’s just going to take a little longer, and it won’t happen like in the movies

Start Eating Differently

One of the best things you can do for yourself is change your diet. Some of  you might already have a perfectly healthy and balanced diet. But if you don’t, it could make so much difference to your overall health and appearance. It’s not just about losing weight; you could be stick-thin and still have a less than adequate diet. Eating the right things can give you more energy. It can make your skin clearer and help you get a better night’s sleep. It could make your digestive system happier and, of course, it could help you to lose weight. There is no one way to eat healthily, so it’s up to you to decide what you want to do. You might choose a vegetarian diet, or maybe you want something that will help you build some muscle.

Stick to a Workout Routine

If you want to get in shape, you probably already know that you have to exercise regularly. However, telling yourself you’re going to go to the gym three times a week and actually doing it are two different things. You need to make a plan to keep up your motivation and determination if you want to reach your goals. First off, you should have goals that you can aim for. Having something to work toward is one thing that will help you a lot. You can also get your friends to join in so that you can all encourage each other. If you can’t get any of them to join you, look for classes or find a group you can work out with. Or do like me and take walks with your pet:)

Consider Surgery

Of course, if you want it to be more movie-like, than real-life-effort, you can also consider cosmetic surgery. It’s not for everyone, but many women would rather pay the cost and escape all the work. Using methods such as liposuction, you can get rid of stubborn fat that won’t seem to go away. Plus, surgery can do things that no amount of exercise or dietary changes can do. There’s no natural way to get a boob job or have sexy lips like Kendall :/

Ditch the Glasses

We’re long past the days when wearing glasses made you a nerd. You’ll find all kinds of celebrities wearing them, and you can get them in many designer names. It’s not something to be ashamed of anymore. But not everyone likes wearing glasses. And contacts aren’t always the best alternative. Maybe you’ve tried contacts and didn’t like them, or you wear them but they’re a hassle. One thing’s for sure, not wearing glasses when you usually have them on can be a big change. It’s often easy for people not to recognize you without them. If you’re ready to ditch them forever, you could think about laser eye surgery. It might sound scary, but it’s quick and so is the recovery. It can be better not to have it done too young, as your eyesight could get worse again later on. If you think you might like to consider it, you can find your nearest clinic and discuss it with them. I’m still trying to convice my hubby to do it but he’s a chicken lol

Treat Yourself to a New Wardrobe

Even if you don’t change anything else about you, what you wear can have a significant impact on your image. If you wear something baggy and frumpy, that’s how you’ll look. The important thing to remember is how to dress for your shape. You can learn about the different shapes and styles that suit your body. Then buy clothes that are flattering for you. If you want a whole new wardrobe, you don’t have to spend that much. Keep your costs down by choosing a capsule wardrobe. It’s made up of the essential items that you will wear every day.

Experiment with Makeup

Whether or not you usually wear makeup, changing your look can be a major part of your makeover. Maybe you typically wear a lot of makeup, and you want to tone it down to something more natural. Or perhaps you never wear any, and you want to try out a little to enhance your best features. Before you choose something you like, experiment with different looks to find out which one is best for you. Find ways that you can do your makeup for everyday occasions and special events.

Focus on Your Smile

Don’t forget about your teeth when you consider a makeover. There are some cosmetic procedures that you can have to change them. You might think about whitening them or getting some clear braces to help straighten them. Some people decide to have veneers put on their teeth to improve the color, shape and size.

Choose a New Makeover Hairstyle

Of course, a new hairstyle can also give you a dramatic new look. Maybe you want to straighten your super curly hair or give your extremely straight hair a bit of a wave. You could choose to have it cut shorter than you usually would or have layers put in. There’s a lot you could do if you wanted to do something different. A new hairstyle can change the way that you look completely, and it’s one of the quickest ways to do it.
You may not be able to change your look as fast as it is in the movies, but you can still give yourself a makeover. Some of it might require a little work, but it’s up to you how much effort you want to put in.
