If you’re looking for natural beauty tips, don’t skip over these suggestions from the makeover experts at Makeover Media. You don’t need cosmetic surgery or skinny jeans to be attractive!

It can be surprisingly easy to be more attractive to people of the opposite sex, your friends, your family — and most importantly — yourself.

Before the tips, a quip:

“Nature says to a woman: ‘Be beautiful if you can, wise if you want to, but be respected, that is essential.'” ~ Pierre Beaumarchais.

A woman with integrity, compassion, good cheer, and kindness appears four times as beautiful than a woman with blonde hair and skinny thighs. Who you are is more important than what you look like! That said…we women want to look as good as we can! So here are ten quick and easy beauty tips from image consultant Linda Arroz, of Makeover Media.

And, here ten natural ways to be beautiful for all women…

10 Natural Beauty Tips From the Makeover Experts

1. Stand tall and proud. Keep your shoulders back and down, and pull your tummy in. You won’t believe what a difference this makes; women who stand tall and don’t hunch over look slim and confident.

2. Exude confidence by smiling. Watch your facial expressions in the mirror, and practice introducing yourself to others. Both men and women are attracted to confident women who smile. Everyone is shy at some point, but if you take the initiative and introduce yourself, you appear to be confident. Confidence is sexy and admired – and it’s a quick and easy beauty tip!

3. Wear eye enhancing colors. The retail world gives us a new color palette every season. A natural beauty tips is to introduce a new color into your wardrobe with a top, blouse, jacket, or T-shirt. Eye enhancing colors keep others focused on your upper torso and face, which increases your attractiveness. Eye enhancing colors do exactly that – they bring out your eyes – which are very expressive and create an aura of animation, excitement and sparkle.

4. Wear less makeup – or at least appear to wear less makeup. This quick and easy way to be more beautiful will shave minutes off your morning routine! Use a tinted moisturizer with SPF, a light dusting of mineral powder for additional coverage, lip liner and gloss, and a light coat of mascara.

5. Change your hair color. Adding some highlights to your hairstyle will lighten and brighten your face, which will increase your attractiveness. This may not be a natural beauty tip – unless you use a henna hair color. A more natural way to be beautiful is to try a new hairstyle – and learn how to keep your hair healthy.

6. Cut your hair into bangs, especially if you can cover up some forehead wrinkles. Bangs are youthful, and can be sexy and flirty. A great hairstyle is a key characteristic of a beautiful woman – and it’s natural.

7. Show off your natural assets. If you have nice legs, wear skirts to highlight them. If you have varicose veins, try a self tanner and/or wear leggings or footless tights under a skirt. Choose a flattering neckline for your face shape, or enhance your gorgeous eyes.

8. Get rid of the acrylic nails. Long, thick acrylic nails are old school and dated. Keeping your nails short and using clear or pale sheer colors is a quick, easy beauty tip that works. Your hands will look fresh and clean – more naturally beautiful.

9. Update your eyeglass frames or go for contacts. Contact lenses are now made for almost all types of eyes and eye issues. If, for example, you have astigmatism, you might be able to use a newer type of contact lens.

10. Be current on some area of the news. Whether it is popular culture (music, TV shows, celebrities) or history, have something to add to conversations that is interesting and can spark dialogue. Women who can talk about something besides other people are perceived as smart – and smart is beautiful!

  1. I agree, confidence is # 1 beauty enhancer. Thank you for sharing tips.

  2. I just wanted to thank you for this list. It is promoting healthy beauty standards that leave women wiser and more confident after putting them into action, unlike a lot of stuff on the internet…

  3. Dear Laurie
    Hi my name is Amber Bloom and i would love to thank you for giving each and every lady natural and easy tips of becoming beautiful. I never thought that confidence is the answer to beauty. All this time i have been applying make up almost like every single day i apply make up just to make boys think i`m natural unlike my friend Jesse Dogard , she is a total nerd but she does not mind if people call her a nerd cause she likes herself the way she is and nothing or no one who can give her low self esteem i adore her cause she is confident and natural like you.

    Thank you very much for your time Laurie and all the people out there

    Yours faithfully

    Amber Bloom

  4. Thanks for your comments! I should rewrite this article on natural beauty tips, because I think I’ve found better ones…

  5. Thanks for the tips. Smiling is definitely a great way to exude confidence and it always makes you feel good and everyone else too!

  6. Hi Laurie,

    What is your favorite natural tip for beauty? I’m writing an article for my blog about beautiful women and would love to know what you think!

    Thanks,
    Darlene

  7. Thanks, Susan. Confidence is the number one beauty tip — I wish I could remember that!

  8. Nice post Laurie! I totally agree with you. All your tips are simple and practical. Sometimes we invest to much on beauty products we tend to forget that confidence is the key.
    More power to you!

  9. I’ve never tried a self-tanning lotion, but have just returned from a two week vacation in Hawaii. That’s the quickest, easiest beauty tip I know — go on vacation and relax for two weeks! :-)

  10. Self tanners are actually a great way to use less make up too. You won’t need bronzing powder or anything else, just some mascara and maybe lipstick and you’re ready to go!

  11. Thanks for your comment Alyssa! I agree — confidence is a great beauty enhancer :-)

  12. I love the quote and the core message behind this article. Being beautiful is all about not being afraid to show what’s really inside of you. A positive attitude translates into a smile and that smile will make other people smile.
