Without wanting it, we evaluate people. It can say what who wants, "The first impression" always counts! We are being drilled at school today as much as ever.
We are becoming more and more intelligent and have access to enormous knowledge in all possible fields through the Internet alone. But something has been lost. What was once only withheld from aristocrats and noble families has completely disappeared as a learning subject. Unfortunately, we no longer learn to deal with our appearance. Looking good and being well-groomed is not only a talent, you can also learn it.
When the first impression counts
Some of us have learned as children never to judge people after the appearance - at least for me it was. But you get to it relatively early on that you do it. But why? Well, we live in a visual culture and our minds react immediately to everything we see. We cannot resist it, because in our unconscious there are mechanisms that we all possess as "urinatists" and which still have a profound influence on us today. It is also scientifically clear that the first impression has a far greater power over us than we are aware of or than we like. Who does not know the feeling of immediately feeling sympathy for a stranger? Conversely, there are also situations in which we feel a real aversion to another for no rational reason. In the first few seconds of each encounter, it is already decided "how to proceed". Clothes, body language, charisma, rhetoric, our appearance and thus our charisma - all of this matters here. You can make all this work for you or against you.
So both women upstairs are me, Lucina Life. Both photos were taken in the same week. The photo at the water immediately after getting up, unvarnished, with clothes, which I found on the fast in the car - so few people get to see me. The other photo I am at a meeting in Kufstein. Let's start now with an interview as creative director: which woman would you hire? What's the first thing that plays out in your head? It's one and the same person - me and yet it looks like they're two completely different people. As written, you can make the knowledge acquired in the future work for you or against you.
Fashion as best friend
Clothes make people - definitely. It's not just for this reason that fashion should be made your best friend. Dressing well is something that is part of the daily routine and is inseparable from our lives. Feeling good, being well-groomed and attractive are prerequisites for all areas of life; whether everyday life, work or finding a partner - our styling says a lot about us! Not everything, but a lot. It is precisely for this reason that I wonder why this topic is not brought closer to us at school (excluding the designers and fashion schools). Why arewe not taught what we stand for? What color or style types are there at all? How to make up properly? In every area of life it is important to assess oneself and to know oneself well. For example, it is also important to assess your character correctly in order to find a style that suits you and to put together a wardrobe in which you feel comfortable on every occasion.On Lucinaslife I would like to share in my contributions some basics that I learned as a Beauty & Lifestyle Coach. You can be inspired and learn to dress, make up and style yourself properly - just get the best out of yourself. Each one as far and as much as it suits her/him.
Clothes make up a part of us
Our clothes reflect us. The attitude towards ourselves, the attitude towards our counterpart - all this is reflected in our appearance. Without having to speak a word, everyone expresses something with their clothes, it is a non-verbal message about social belonging and status. Clothes can work for or against us. I know it's not always easy. But through our visual code we can consciously control impressions and stand out positively as an individual from the grey crowd. Fashion gives us the opportunity to play with clothes and reinvent ourselves again and again. The only important thing is not to lose his personality. I am convinced that each of us can be well dressed and therefore look good. But it is not only important what we wear, but also how we wear it. Yes, fashion is a great instrument that can make us beautiful, strong and desirable. We often confuse fashion with trends. We often try to keep an eye on the trends, but we easily lose sight of ourselves. Trends are short-lived, but we are stuck in our own body for a lifetime. Style is individual, changeable and contentious - and that's why it's so sought after.
Individuality and own style
Take the time to discover your own style that makes you distinctive and find out which clothes best suit you, rather than behaving like a total shopaholic and following all sorts of fashion victim influencers. Stop buying all the unnecessary nonsense they're trying to impose on you. Leave space for your own creativity and not be influenced by the opinions of others. Don't get me wrong, you can always be advised and inspired, but also learn to listen more to your gut feeling. Buy less and learn to choose more specifically. Develop your very own, clear look - set your own rules instead of following those of others. Then you always have something to put on ;-) Learn to recognize, appreciate and optimally use your own individuality. Never forget: your unique personality is your greatest privilege. You're perfectly fine as you are! Even without these trendy neon-pink high heels, which are the last cry at the moment. In a few months they are already totally out and the next trend is coming. Trends come and go - the true style remains. Fashion that you can wear for a long time, there is definitely.
Mr.Bag and I are not really on a hunt for the latest trends and are not fashion experts or fashion victims. There are already enough of them. We are in favour of fewer rules and trends that others are trying to impose on us, but we are in favour of more authenticity! I know, I know: for many, the world is collapsing, because clear and unambiguous rules and their conscientious adherence make you the perfectly styled and confident woman or man you have always wanted to be. Well, whether, for example, this mega, cool leather jacket, from the brand and the brand, will make you a perfectly styled woman or man remains to be seen. This path is an easy way, but have the courage and determination to find out for yourself what you stand for and what you feel comfortable in!Love yourself as you are - with all your "extraordinary quirks" that don't meet the norm. You don't really have to lie under a plastic surgeon's knife to match a beauty trend... Never forget: trends come and go - true style remains! Live your lifestyle, show who you really are or want to be, just go your own way. Flawless celebrities, well-trained fitness gurus and top-styled social media influencers make it harder for us to feel comfortable in our skin every day. But how flawless are these people really? Stop pushing panic before age or before looking older and make it your strength and special trait. Wrinkles are not a disgrace, but a special effect - you don't have to go to the beauty surgeon immediately. With a little sophistication, every blemish can be turned into a trademark. The legging sliver of Cindy Crawford, well is it ringing? My two different eyes have become my absolute trademark. In the past, as a child I was often teased and mocked for it, today it is my unmistakable trademark of which I am very proud. My two eyes fit perfectly with me and my two most different personalities. On the one hand I love the rural, fresh air, forest and simple life, down-to-earthness and tradition and on the other hand I am also the total city person who also loves modernity and small luxury. I both love my lives and live them to the full. I am very grateful for that.
The way taylor Swift couldn't unleash her magic without her make-up, stylists and PR specialists is hopefully clear to everyone here. We process a wave of information every day, we scroll through perfectly staged lives on Instagram and Facebook every day - let's not fool ourselves: in our latitudes, material abundance and media over-stimulation make up our everyday lives. As a result, we are subject to the urge to present something professionally and privately, a little more than we already are. Everything has to be perfect - only then will our lives be. We own and covet more than we actually need or could use regularly, and then wonder why sometimes everything just gets too much for us. Don't fall into the delusion that you have to be perfect all around, own this and that - that can seem boring. Better real than perfect. Away from the constant focus on the outside, by which I do not mean a well-groomed appearance, but superficiality, towards a healthy self-worth and the small but significant realization that we are all so much more than beautiful! Be more confident and put on what you like and not what someone is trying to pretend that it's "In" right now. It's about breaking rules too! Be brave! Our society strives for eternal youth. You have to be slim because it's synonymous with health and success. Let's think, is it really? Think, for example, of the singer Adele, how she can skillfully stage her feminine curves and look great. There is no ideal measure for happiness and for the "perfect styling"! Courage is always rewarded. I have increased from 42kg to 56kg. As the kilos have come, so will they go again. Now for now I live out my curves and my femininity. I just have the kilos now and learn to deal with them positively. Learn to love as you are, accept the now state. Search for what makes you, inspire yourself and get the best out of you! You only have one life, don't miss it - give it all! Thanks to Photoshop and Co., the media is deceiting us for supposed perfection. Between all the photoshopped bikini models and filtered Instagram stars, it's time to find your way to recognize, embrace and love your unique beauty.
With my contributions I'm just trying to help you find your own style, a styling that puts you positively in the foreground and that gives you self-confidence. I'll provide the tricks you can build your wardrobe, get an overview of your wardrobe and keep order.
