Five Basics For Your “New You” Look. Change Your Look and it leads to Changing Your Life

Holly Fulger is a true believer in a healthy lifestyle

We can’t forget about the basics for your “New Year, New You” look. There are some pretty nuts and bolts kinds of things that just need to be included in that. Beauty from the inside out is not only a spiritual thing….it is also a health and wellness thing. As you start the New Year, I believe there must be a commitment to health and wellness. You can accomplish some pretty major change with a few simple steps.

1. Eat Healthy…..eating a healthy diet can help reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, heart disease and stroke. It helps you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Make the produce isle at the market your first stop.  Make sure you include your grains, such as brown rice. I also love oat bran, and have it every morning with nonfat yogurt. Nuts and seeds are a great source of protein and are high in Omega 3, as is salmon, tuna, sardines, and other seafood.

2. Stop eating processed foods, sodas, and artificial sweeteners…..Processed foods include packaged high-calorie snack foods such as chips and candies, breads and pastas made with refine white flour instead of whole grains, processed meats, packaged cakes and cookies, and sugary breakfast cereals.

No artificial sweetners! They are cancer causers, plain and simple. If you use any kind of sugar substitute, try Stevia.

Stop drinking soda. Sugary soft drinks are the biggest single source of empty calories in the American diet.

3. Get active….. It can be anything…..walking your dog for 20 minutes a day, a bike ride, a yoga class….anything that gets you moving. Physical activity is essential to a healthy lifestyle. The health and beauty benefits are astonishing.

4.Stop smoking……. Smoking compromises your body in every way. Stopping smoking can save your life.

5. Get 8 hours of sleep a night……. Many of us want to sleep as little as possible—or feel like we have to.  But just as getting active and eating healthy are essential for optimal health and happiness, so is sleep. The quality of your sleep affects your productivity, emotional balance, creativity, and even your weight. No other activity delivers so many benefits with so little effort! It also helps keep you beautiful.

Holly Fulger is inspired by Jerry Hall
Dec. 26.

Who Is Your Inspiration For Your “New Year New You” Look? You can change your look – but will it lead to changing your life?

Okay….we’re on the countdown for 2012 . Are you looking at what you want to do differently? Are you beginning to visualize yourself next year and get a sense of who you want to be and what you want to project to the world?  I know I certainly am. As I take stock of where I am and where I want to be, I use a tool that works everytime…..inspiration. I look at who inspires me…who I can learn from and model myself after.

Holly Fulger is inspired by Jerry Hall

 

One of the woman I feel a kinship with in terms of style would be Jerry Hall. From the time I could get my hands on a Vogue magazine, Jerry Hall was always one of my favorite models. Her look was different then most. She had big features, she wasn’t Grace Kelly perfect….but she was stunning. I did a series with Renee Russo (another gorgeous woman) and I remember having dinner with her and asking her if she had ever worked with Jerry Hall. She had and described her as a real girls girl. She told me she could put outfits together with some of the most unconventional pieces of clothing (like inexpensive lingerie), and create a look that was amazing. I loved hearing that. I think Jerry Hall is a real original.

Look at her here. She is in her 50′s, beautiful, and sexier then she ever was. What woman wouldn’t want to be like her?

Who inspires you? Is it someone in the public eye? Perhaps an iconic beauty, like Audrey Hepburn? Or maybe you’re inspired by your mother’s style and presence. Role models are important. They give us context. Take some time and think about someone who can be your inspiration for your “New Year, New You”.

Holly Fulger knows what beauty means

New Year, New You: What Does Adventure Look Like?

What does adventure look like? Or prosperity? I spoke previously about looking at your “New Year, New You” transformation from the inside out. Picking out your essential “Core Beauty Values” and using them as you reinvent yourself for the New Year. Now it’s time to look at those values and translate them visually. In our Core Beauty Workshop, we work on transformation all year long. But, the New Year? What a perfect place to start!

Let’s say, for example, that in your search inward, you found that the three “Core Beauty Values” that were essential to you in the New Year were beauty, influence, and adventure. Study those qualities and think about what they mean to you. Beauty…..if it was a color, what color would it be? What is your reaction to the word? Is there anyone you know, or know of, who embodies “beauty”? One of the women who embodies beauty to me is Audrey Hepburn. She is classically beautiful in every sense of the word.

Holly Fulger says ~ Change Your Look and Change Your Life

Holly Fulger knows what beauty means

Let’s try influence. When I think of influence, I think of a powerful woman…..a woman who can walk her talk, who is true to herself, and is strong in who she is. I think Maria Shriver has influence. She is very specific about how she presents herself to the world.

Lastly, take a look at adventure. What is adventure to you? If you were adventurous, how would you be different? When I think of adventure, I think of a woman who has a sort of fearless quality to her. My embodiment of an adventurous woman is Lauren Hutton.

Now here’s the fun part. Taking your “Core Beauty Values” and learning how to incorporate them visually. Beauty, influence, and adventure. Let’s start with beauty. Begin with the classic “Audrey Hepburn” image. A matte foundation will work best. If you’re familiar with the Core Beauty Workshopyou know that we only use Arbonne products. My choice would be the Arbonne Perfecting Liquid Foundation. You will want to create your contouring and your basic eye shape. I use Arbonne’s Bronzer to create perfect contouring.

Now, look at influence and adventure. Influence is strength and specificity. But, how does that translate visually? Be strong in your color choices for blush and eyeshadow. A woman who has influence doesn’t falter in her choices. She has strong opinions and a strong look.

Adventure. If adventure were a lip color, what color would that be? I think, it would be red. If not red, a strong color. A woman who has excitement in her life is not afraid to make a statement. She is a bit fearless. She chooses a color that expresses her lust for life. Now, it’s up to you. Don’t be afraid to make a statement. Take your “Core Beauty Values” and incorporate them into your life.

Holly Fulger believes that beauty comes from the inside
Dec. 11.

Take the First Step for a New Year, New You! Change Your Look and Changing Your Life – how to begin.

New Year, New You:  The end of 2011….for me a year with many challenges.  It’s hard to believe it went so quickly, and yet I am ready to embrace a new year and new possibilities. I encourage all of you reading this to do the same. I love the thought of a “New Year, New You”. It sounds so hopeful and so full of potential. Now it’s time to take the first step and embrace it. You need to take a look inside.

Find a quiet place and get comfortable. Take a few moments to look at 2011…..your accomplishments, your losses, what you want to take with you into the new year and what you want to let go of. Now…ask yourself these questions: What do I need in my life? What is essential to “me”….to who I am? Do I need excitement? Adventure? Security? Family? Beauty? It can be anything, but you need to put some thought into this. This is YOU and this is important. As I searched my soul for what was important to me, I saw that beauty was necessary to who I was. I needed it in my life, whether it was expressed through my clothing, my environment, or my makeup…beauty was important. I also chose joy and prosperity. I see joy as a kind of freedom. Joy has a lightness to it, and it was essential to my life. Prosperity resonates in how I occur in the world and what I want to attract.

Holly Fulger believes beauty starts from the inside

Next, take a look at yourself in the mirror. Think about the values you have chosen that are essential to your life. Are you presenting yourself to the world in a way that includes these values?  Are you communicating the sort of woman you want to be? In our Core Beauty Workshop, we work with our Core Beauty Reflection Cards, to get women to see what it is that’s truly important to them. We believe in beauty from the inside out. It’s what all our workshops are about. Our core values should always inform our choice of how we want the world to see us. Are you communicating the kind of woman you want to be to the world?

Sexy Makeup: Authentic Swagger

Sexy Makeup…think about it. How sexy are you or your makeup without the proper attitude…..or the right amount of swagger?? How sexy would Lauren Hutton be without her persona? How about Tilda Swinton? Helen Mirren? Confidence is sexy. Authenticity is sexy. Sexiness is in the swagger…the attitude….the  point of view of the individual.

How can authenticity and confidence trump big, luscious lips, and a slamming body? Being present, authentic and confident is irresistible. There is something so amazing about a woman who believes in herself, who knows she is capable of anything she puts her mind to. There is beauty and sexiness in the strength and determination of a woman who follows her own path. There is beauty and sexiness about a woman whose confidence comes from experiences. And there is beauty and sexiness in a woman’s authenticity.

So ask yourself: Am I listening to my inner voice? Am I following my path? Am I living authentically?  (more…)

Feeling Sexy at Any Age ~ Sexy Makeup Helps Make it Happen

Sexy Makeup:  How many of us question our beauty? Our sexuality? Our ability to project our sensual wholeness to the world….both outwardly and inwardly? I know I question my beauty and sexuality all the time.

What if I told you it is possible to feel sexier on the inside first – and that feeling sexier on the inside will make your personal approach to sexy makeup easier, more fun and bring you a sexy makeup look that is uniquely YOURS?
Now THAT’s sexy. 

I am Holly Fulger and, along with Melissa McNamara, I founded
The Core Beauty Workshops.  If you’ve been reading our blog and our Facebook page, then you know – We help women discover their beauty from the inside out.

Since Melissa and I launched our business, we have been adding to our curriculum. My latest signature class/workshop is a

Holy Fulger teaches "Sexy at Every Age"

course that focuses on getting each woman in touch with her sexiest self, a day of education called “Sexy at Every Age”.  It is a class designed to zero in on your sensuality and bring it up to the surface so you can have some sexy fun at every age!

Through much research and evaluation, I have come up with a guideline called “The 9 Elements of Sensuality”.   These are elements that every woman needs in her life to break through those barriers that hold her back from her power as a viable, sexy woman. Believe me, unleashing your power in this way will change your life.

This blog post is the first in my series of blog posts on this subject, and I’d love to hear from you about this!

Here are a few of questions to ask yourself:

  • Do you feel sexy out there in the world?
  • Are you in touch with what it is that makes you feel that… or would make you feel sexy if you added it to your life?
  • At this time in your life, where do you go to learn how to create your sexy makeup looks?

Leave your personal answers in the comments section below, or if it makes you feel more comfortable, you can send them to me by email at corebeautyworkshop AT gmail DOT com.

Thanks for reading!  We want to be the ones to help you feel as beautiful and sexy as you deserve to feel!
