The International Women’s Day is around the corner, which means it’s your turn to spread the love. And no, not just to the ladies around you but to yourself as well! This is your day to pamper yourself and make yourself feel like you’re worth a million bucks. Who needs a man for that anyway? As long as you’ve got you and your vanity box, you’re all sorted!
So, this Woman’s Day, celebrate the true beauty junkie inside of you in these fabulous and empowering ways. Why? Because you’re a star and you know it!
1. Treat Yourself To An At-Home Facial
Give a grand start to your day by calling in your beautician to your house and indulging in a well-deserved relaxing session of an at-home facial! Sit back and enjoy a magazine as you lose yourself in the lush aroma of a chocolate facial. Remember, it’s your day and you deserve a break for working so hard and managing things that seem next to impossible to do!
And if chocolate isn’t your thing (How rare is that!), you could opt for charcoal infused face masks (MAC has a good one). Charcoal is known to be great for the skin – it eliminates all impurities and deep cleanses the skin so that you get a glowing face that is just ready to be decked up for Women’s Day!
2. Shop Till You Drop
What better day than Women’s Day to give you an excuse for shopping? While the world may unfairly treat looking good as a hollow activity, you and me, we both know that there’s nothing more empowering than feeling good about yourself.
So, on this day dedicated to women and women alone, why not show some love to your inner beauty junkie by splurging on that expensive piece of cosmetic you’ve always wanted? MAC has some great products on offer, ranging from BB creams and foundations to lipsticks in all kinds of shades you can desire! They have a cool collection of eyeliners and mascaras too! Need I say more? You can buy your favorite ones here.
3. Try A Daringly Different Look
Remember that makeup tutorial that you saw on YouTube that you thought was too bold try? The very one which you know you can totally pull off, but would have to listen to whispers of ‘slutty’? Well, don’t let anyone shame you or drag you down this Women’s Day. Instead, bring out your fearless side by trying a daringly different look!
Whether the lipstick is too red or the eyeshadow very dark, don’t let that hinder you from pulling off the look you really want to. Haters will always hate, even if you look like the most sophisticated woman on the planet. So, throw their load of crap in the dumpster and bring out your beauty makeup kit! Let your inner diva flaunt her true colors.
4. Give Your Friend A Makeover
While empowering yourself with what’s on your dressing table, spread your spirit of confidence and courage by giving your BFF a one of a kind makeover à la Sonam Kapoor in Aisha!
Every single woman deserves to look and feel good. So, if your best friend has been kind of down lately, make it a point to raise her spirits by getting her out of her pajamas and right into her favorite dress! Because as a woman, it’s your duty to help other women realize their true beauty.
And while you’re at it, ensure that you use the best cosmetics since just like you, your BFF deserves nothing less than the best! You could also make your soul sister’s day by gifting her the iconic Ruby Woo lipstick that she’s always wanted! What’s better than making another woman happy on Woman’s Day anyway? You can choose from a wide range of MAC lippies.
5. Flaunt The Pout With Selfies
Now that both you and your BFF are ready to celebrate a very memorable Women’s Day, don’t forget to flaunt that pretty pout by clicking a ton of selfies! Show the world how amazing you feel and look without giving a damn about those who have nothing better to do than to judge.
Let it be known to yourself that you are a work of art, and you deserve nothing less than to be shown off, no matter your skin tone, your body shape or the clothes you wear. You are and always will be beautiful in your own way. Especially when you beam with that smile of self-confidence!
Living in a world that we do, where women have to face a lot of discrimination every day on the stupidest of grounds (like wearing red lip color to work), let this Women’s Day be a day about doing all you wanted to do – without fearing what people have to say. On this day, just be proud to be YOU!
