Sometimes girls and women look all around them to find tips and tricks on how to be beautiful. There’s always some fashion-savvy magazine writer, some new and gorgeous model to imitate, or some new type of make-up commericial on T.V. And some ladies will try most anything: diet and exercise, plastic surgery, new clothes and make up or they might just swap out the old boyfriend in exchange for a new one so that they feel better about themselves.
Whatever it is women like to do to feel beautiful and irresistible, I know of 5 of the Best Kept Secrets to being truly STUNNING.
TIPS ON HOW TO LOOK GOOD:
No need to spend so much money on those new, refining, defining eyelash lengtheners that claim to make your eyelashes look full and lucious and LONG. (I’ve worn mascara occassionally, and it didn’t work for me. Lol) No need to spend precious minutes in the mirror making that face to put it on!
#1: For LOVELY EYES
Always look out for others instead of just yourself and look at their good side too!
(Philippians 2:4 “Each of you should look not only to your own interests, bur also to the interests of others.”)
Ever saw a lipstick commercial?? “…lasts all day, from dawn to dusk…” and the model can even drink from a glass and not leave lip prints on it! I’ve got something better.
#2: For TENDER LIPS
Speak only kind words towards others.
(Colossians 4:6 “Let your conversation be always full of grace, seasoned with salt so that you may know how to answer everyone.”)
What’s the latest foundation? Olay? I don’t know. Supposedly they have foundations and facial cleansers that can “beautify your skin!” “make you look 10 years younger!” “give you your youth back!” “erase those lines and wrinkles on your face!” Oh, and my favorite commericial, “Parenthesis have a place, but not on your face..” I can do you one better.
#3:For a CHARMING FACE
Always smile with not just a pleasant face, but a happy heart!
(Proverbs 15:13 “A happy heart makes the face cheerful, but heartache crushes the spirit.”)
Nowadays there’s a new gadget for just about everything. Technology moves so fast, it’s vitrually IMPOSSIBLE to keep up. And what better what to get in shape and look beautiful than toned arms? They have weight lifting machines, shake weights, and clever exercises you can do while watching T.V. or sitting at the office desk. But I have something better, and unlike some things out there, it actually works.
#4: For those GRACEFUL ARMS
Reach out with compassion to those in need.
(Acts 20:35 “In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.'”)
And finally, how hard is it to have baby smooth skin,….on your feet. =/ They have DIY pedicure kits, and scrubbers for the heels to remove dead, crusty skin. Here’s something I’ve even heard of: put lotion/vaseline on your feet after a shower and then put socks on to lock it in, I suppose. But the BEST way to have those silky smooth heels is right here..
#5: For BEAUTIFUL FEET
ALWAYS WALK WITH GOD & SHARE THE GOOD NEWS!
(Isaiah 52:7 “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, ‘Your God reigns!'”)
Now don’t get me wrong. Some of those tips and tricks to look spiffy and smell nice do work. I haven’t tried many so I can’t advocate ’em. But true beauty is natural and real beauty has to come from INSIDE first before anyone can notice it OUTSIDE. Besides, why let models (who don’t know who you are, by the way) tell you what’s chic to wear? And why let Olay and MAC and other make-up companies tell you how you should look at a certain age? None of these people are you, and none of them can live like you. The best way to stay up on your P’s and Q’s of beauty, is to not get caught up in the materialistic points of beauty, think pure thoughts, be forgiving and compassionate and loving as the Father, and follow His path for you. After all, any Daughter of the KING is already BEAUTIFUL BEYOND COMPARE.. =D
TO THE KING!!
