The first thing I do every morning is my skin routine. This doesn't necessarily make me feel beautiful, but it does make me feel that tiny bit better about my appearance because my skin is well looked after and after all you should be proud of something you put work into right? Also, if you're feeling unwanted then maybe you're trying to attract the wrong people. Try new hobbies if you can and you'll find nice people this way. And doing nice things for people will make you feel appreciated when you see how thankful they are. Try giving someone a gift or just telling them what makes them special to you.
The first step into feeling pretty is realizing that you ARE pretty. But I know how you feel. Most of us don't wake up every morning and look in the mirror and love what we see. What helps me is waking up early in the morning and taking a shower right away. You feel clean and fresh for the rest of the day. Feeling clean and fresh gives you a little boost of confidence and reminds you "hey, I'm not gross." (Not like you are if you don't shower, you were born pretty remember?) After you take a shower put a little make up on, but be careful, you don't want to be a cake face. Just use enough to give you the illusion. Mascara or blush or lip gloss will be enough. You don't want to feel like you're wearing a thick mask of concealer all day. You just took a shower, don't dirty yourself up! You can do something with your hair. Maybe clip part of it back with a pretty hair clip or do a messy bun. Hair is always pretty if you work it the right way. Also, you can ALWAYS feel pretty in a cute outfit. I know whenever I put on an outfit that makes me feel like ME, i feel flawless. I feel like if I know i look good, and act like it, other people will think I look good too, and it's like that for everyone. Confidence is sexy! And I know, I'm only talking about physical things making you prettier than you already are, but the truth of the matter is it's all an illusion. The makeup, clothes, everything is an illusion. You are tricking yourself. You don't NEED that mascara or that pretty dress to be pretty, because you already are! You just need confidence! You can't make someone pretty who is already gorgeous! Just keep remembering that no one is a better you than you are, and you will feel amazing. I hope this helped!
you just look at yourself in the mirror and say, DAMN WHO DAT?? IS SHE SINGLE? or if that doesn't work, then just accept the way you look and go outside and yell out you're ugly and proud.although.. how can skin and bones be ugly? like i don't get it. a certain way our shape forms determines our appearance.
To feel beautiful, you need to be confident in how you look. This may seem hard, but you can do it! Wear clothes that compliment your body and look good with your hair and that are comfy to wear. Try posting positive little notes around your mirror and reading them everyday. Don't forget to compliment yourself :) For example, "I look so cute today. No one can tell me otherwise."
People often tell me that makeup is used as a crutch, but I don't think so. My friends and I agree that makeup helps us to feel a lot more confident. Some guys would probably kill for some magic creams they could put on to make themselves feel more confident. When I started wearing makeup, I felt a lot prettier! If you already wear makeup, you could shake it up and try some new styles that you like.
