2nd chance for a 1st impression???

You never get a second chance to make a first impression. That's why women feel that they have to be well groomed, polished. To make a good 'impression.' I remember I have this friend who was nice, caring and very energetic, once you know her more, you'll like her. But talk about first impression? Humm, my first impression -and I'm sure other's as well - was not so good: she was nice and all, but how would you impressed by one if one's always wearing her hair down, wearing shorts and shirts, has oily skin and wearing sandals? Unlucky for her, people sometimes lok down on her. Lucky for me we became friends, for almost 2 years now.

Another friend of mine was another story. She's well groomed, well, a bit too groomed I supposed. Going out for her, even to buy grocery at FairPrice would be a 30 mins hair and makeup session. For a girls night out? A minimum of 100 mills of hairspray, tonnes of MAC makeup, one pair of earring, 1 set for fake nails, 1 set of fake lashes, 2 bangles, 2 belts and at least 1 unknown accessory will be used. Yes, she looks gorgeous and all, but once you take it all off, the beauty fades. FYI, nobody ever knew what she really looks like..

I've got a perfect example for that:

So what's the essence of this issue? Be natural, be your own self! I simply say that. Dress appropriately according to occasion. Don't wear short if you wanna go have fancy dinner, don't wear an evening dress if you wanna go late nite shopping to Mustafa. Yes, wear makeup but not too much. Get rid of that oily skin, but also get rid of those fake nails! No need those fake eyelashes, just rely on your natural figure, be it you own nose, even your own pimples!

You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so better make a good one.
