Beauty and fashion can be extremely tricky waters to navigate!
Heck, that's why so many celebs rely on a glam squad and a professional stylist to get them through their endless calendars full of fancy events and red carpet madness.
Thankfully, we were able to talk to beauty and fashion guru Miss J about tips for the everyday girl — and as always, the America's Next Top Model judge totally delivered.
His nugget of wisdom in regards to makeup is as follows:
"The tip I give for the everyday girl who maybe wants to be like a model or dreams to look like one, it's called make up and hair, girl, because everybody can't have that natural beauty! Some people have a natural beauty about them, but their natural beauty needs a little bit of help!"
That may seem like a superficial thing to say, but the truth is that the majority of Hollywood gets a TON of help in the makeup and hair department ALL the time. So obviously if you want to look like your fave model or celeb, you're probably going to need the same amount of beauty attention!
Makes sense, right??
Then when it comes to fashion, Miss J is a big proponent of dressing for your body, not dressing to fit in with whimsical trends.
"DON’T follow fashion trends if your body is not in shape. Dress for your body! Dress fashionably for your body. And, anytime you get up on a chair, and have to pull your damn skirt down four inches, it’s too damn short to begin with and too damn tight! Sometimes, I want walk up behind a girl and say, ‘girl, you need to pull that, you’re getting up and trying to adjust that' — there’s a fitted dress and then there's a tight dress. Just because it stretches, doesn't mean you should be wearing it. My advice is, if it's too tight and it's too short when you're sitting down, Lord knows when you get up on a chair or two what it looks like from the back and the front. Peek a boo, I see you!”
Even certain celebrities can't seem to get the short skirt thing down sometimes, so that's advice for plebs and celebs alike!
Words to live by, folks!!
