So we all love to look like we took some time to get ready without spending forever actually getting ready, right? Here are some ways to look "put together" with little effort.

Wear a bold lipstick to take attention away from your outfit, hair etc. Remember that you might not want to wear too much other makeup though or it might be overkill.

Add jewelry to make it look like you took extra time getting ready and adding the finishing touches.

Match your shoes with your handbag if possible. It doesn't matter what you wear, but if your accessories coordinate it can make you look like you spent extra time planning out your outfit.

Style your hair instead of just pulling it back. I'm guilty of not doing this one enough. It is so easy to just pull your hair back and go.

Buy clothes that hold up. Good quality clothing really can make a difference! I find that sometimes cheaper materials end up shrinking, getting a hole in them, etc. soon after purchasing them. Spending a little extra money is sometimes worth it in the long run.

Fill in your eyebrows. This helps to define your face and can really make a difference in your appearance.

Take care of your nails. This does not necessarly mean spending a lot of money getting your nails done, but just taking the time to clip and file your nails can make a big difference in your appearance.

I hope you liked my tips today. Have a great day and thank you so much for stopping by!
