How to Look Your Best Every Day (for Girls)

Five Methods:

Sometimes, when you’re tired from work or school, you might want to just throw some mismatched clothes and go about your day. However, it’s important to put effort into your appearance every day. It’s easy to look your best every day by focusing on your hygiene and outward appearance. Plus, it feels wonderful.

Quick Summary

For girls, looking your best starts with wearing clothes that fit your personal style and make you feel confident and comfortable. First, decide what colors you like to wear and what kind of clothes you like. For example, you might prefer brighter colors and dresses and skirts for a girlier preppy style. After that, you can create outfits from your wardrobe each night to make getting ready in the morning easier.For more advice on how to look your best every day by making healthy choices, read on!

Picking a Wardrobe

  1. Decide on your look.If you prefer bright colors, use those; if you'd like a wardrobe, go with that.
  2. Clean out your closet.If you cannot be 100% objective, ask a friend to help. You need to keep only the clothing that makes you look great. Although that t-shirt is super soft, if it doesn't look good on you, it needs to go. If it isn't in your closet, you won't be tempted to wear it. If it doesn't fit your style, you should decide if it is worth it to keep.
  3. Decide what jewelry you need.While earrings always look nice, you or your parents might not be comfortable getting your ears pierced. Stay away from piercings anywhere else; avoid having more than two holes in your ears. Necklaces and bracelets are great, but don't go overkill with too many of them.
  4. Decide what you need more of.Do you have ten tank tops, but only 1 pair of jeans? Or are you short on everything? It may be helpful to make a list, so you can stay on track, and not come home and realize you have twenty tank tops. Keeping in mind that what you need will vary by age and location (Alaska and Florida have very different requirements!) these are some guidelines of what you should have:
    • Shoes.
      • 1 pair of flats
      • High heels to match all of your dresses
      • 1-2 pairs of sandals.
      • 1 pair of sneakers. Choose a good brand.
    • 2-3 graphic tees
    • 4 plain shirts or T-shirts
    • Some nicer shirts
    • Shorts or skirts to go with those nicer shirts
    • 1-2 tunics
    • 3-4 hoodies
    • 4-5 tank tops/camis
    • 1 cardigan
    • Multiple pairs of jeans
    • 2-3 pairs of shorts in different styles
    • 1 denim skirt
    • 2-3 pairs of leggings
    • 3 pairs of sweats/lounging pants
    • 2 bathing suits
    • A couple of nice dresses
    • 10 pairs of underwear (1 tan, 1 black, 1 white. The rest can be any color)
    • At least 1 sports bra
    • At least 3 of the type of bra you wear every day
    • 1 bra for when you wear a nice dress
  5. Go shopping.It may be fun to bring a friend. Go to the mall or wherever else you get your clothes from. Find the clothes that you need; they should also fit your style.
    • You may want to think about what is "in," but you don't have to. Get whatever jewelry you'd like, too, as you should have a lot of the stuff you need already. It shouldn't cost too much, and your parents may help pay, especially if you need things like bras and underwear.

Being Hygienic

  1. Take care of your teeth.
  2. Shower.Showerevery day.Morning or night, it doesn't matter.
    • Shave your underarms in the shower. You should shave your legs also, and your bikini line if it is summer.
  3. Care for your hair.
    • Wash it every other day. If you have super greasy hair, you may want to wash it every day temporarily. If you have hair that isn't greasy at all, you may want to wash it every third day.
    • Condition it when you wash it. If you have greasy hair, try conditioning it before you shampoo. Whether you put it first or last, you should leave it in for a few minutes. Wash the rest of your body while you are waiting.
    • Get it cut. When you start seeing split ends, or you are just ready for a change, get a haircut.
  4. Look after your nails.Every 1-2 weeks you should:
    • Exfoliate your hands and feet,
    • Cut your nails.
    • File them.
    • Buff them.
    • Apply new nail polish. Nail polish on your fingers is optional, and if you aren't wearing open-toed shoes (i.e. it is the middle of winter and -5° out) nail polish on your toes is too.
  5. Take care of your face.
    • Exfoliate 1-2 times a week. There are some exfoliating soaps you could use.
    • Get a good face wash that is specifically for acne. Use it every morning. Wash with a different soap (such as exfoliating soap, or just regular soap) every night.
  6. Wear deodorant.
  7. Change your underwear every day.
  8. Change your bra at least once a week.Every few days is better.
    • You should always have some kind of support, except at night. Some shirts have support, and bathing suits do too.

Staying Healthy

  1. Drink 8 glasses of water per day.It makes a huge difference, and it is a beauty gift that's next to free so use it! If you don't like the taste of water, try adding a drink mix to it, or you can add lemon juice, mint leaves, etc. for flavor and taste to your water.
  2. Get at least 8 hours of sleep.Shoot for 9-10. When you're watching shows where the pretty blonde goes "Shut up! I'm trying to get my beauty sleep!", she's not kidding.
  3. Exercise at least 30 minutes a day.One hour is better.
  4. Eat healthy foods.Don't pile up on junk food. Don't drink coffee and wine too much either, as this ruins your teeth.
  5. Eat breakfast every morning.If you are in a rush, you can just grab a granola bar.


  1. Smile!It shows you are friendly and happy. It is one of the easiest things you can do to be more beautiful.
  2. Be confident.When you have confidence people respect that and you feel better about yourself.
    • To be confident doesn't mean to gossip and speak badly to people, it just means to believe in your values and opinions. On a lesser note, it means that you like what you wear and know it looks good.
      • This still does not mean you should criticize people fortheirvalues and opinions.
  3. Don't gossip.No one will want to be around you if you gossip, lie, and are just an all-around horrible person. This is one of the foundations of having a good day. And if you aren't, then you'll probably end up saying, "I regret doing that!" or "What was I thinking? She just wanted to be nice!"

Starting Your Mornings

  1. Wake up early.You'll need to wake up about 1 1/2 hours before you have to leave depending on how fast you are, and whether you decide to shower in the morning. But you'll probably need at least this much time because you'll also have to eat breakfast.
  2. Take a shower.If you choose to shower at night, you should still follow these same steps, just at night.
    • Shampoo your hair (you probably won't do this every day.)
    • Rinse with cold water.
    • Apply conditioner to your ends. Only condition if you shampooed. (If you have greasy hair, remember to do thisbeforeshampooing.)
    • Wash your body.
    • Shave your underarms, legs, and if it's summer your bikini line.
    • Comb through your hair-starting at the ends and working your way up.
    • Rinse out your conditioner with cold water.
    • If you condition, and then shampoo, you should shampoo now.
    • Towel off.
    • Use lotion on your legs, elbows, underarms, and hands.
    • Pumice your feet quickly and then apply lotion.
  3. Put on a deodorant and a thick chap-stick (such as Vaseline).
  4. Get dressed.
  5. Go eat breakfast.Now when you're done, come brush your teeth with whitening toothpaste, floss, and use mouthwash.
  6. Wash your face.When washing your face, wash your hands with hot water for twenty seconds, splash hot water on your face, and wash your face with your hands, your cleanser, and some salt or sugar if you want. Next rinse with hot water, then splash with cold. After that, use lotion; at night use a deeper lotion.
  7. For make-up:don't look like the clown that escaped from the circus. Make sure never to go black-crazy, or cake on the foundation and blush, or embolden both your lips and your eyes.
    • Apply light foundation if needed.
    • Choose either lips or eyes to play up. As an alternative, you could choose the natural look.
    • If you choose eyes:
      • Curl your lashes.
      • Use mascara. Use black or, if you have lighter eyelashes, a dark brown.
      • Apply eyeliner. You can do the bottom ring of the eye if you like, but if you're going for a more natural look go a very light brown.
      • Do something bigger like maybe a smokey eye.
      • Apply just lip gloss for your lips.
      • Apply light blush.
    • If you do lips:
      • Use lipstick and lip gloss.
      • Apply lip liner.
      • Curl your eyelashes.
      • Apply mascara.
      • Apply light blush.
    • If you want the natural look:
      • Curl your lashes.
      • Apply mascara
      • Use light blush.
      • Apply light lip gloss.
      • Use soft eyeshadow.
  8. Touch up your manicure.If the paint is chipped, fix that real quick. This step shouldn't take long. Do the same with your toenails.
  9. The hair.If you took a shower, your hair should still be damp. If you didn't, use a mister to dampen it.
    • Apply some sort of heat-protection to it (such as Argon Oil.)It's essential to put on the heat-protection as blow dryers, curling irons, and flat irons are damaging to our hair.
    • Blow dry. Try to do a different style every day. If you want you can make a calendar that has what hairstyle you'll wear that day so you won't be doing the same hairstyle twice or something.
  10. Spritz on perfume.Be careful not to put on too much. One spritz is enough.
    • If your deodorant smells, you may want to skip this step.

  • Use a cocoa butter, it works magic. You especially should use these if you have dry skin or if you want to smell nice and be moisturized.
  • You can exfoliate your hands and feet with sugar or salt if you don't have an exfoliator. There are also exfoliating soaps you could use.
  • If you want bright colours, put on a lip gloss that suits you and isn't too bold, but is noticeable. You can also get lip markers that make you look like your lips are naturally that color. If you want a natural look, use colors and foundations that are your skin tone.
  • Pretty nail colors/patterns: in the fall, reds, oranges, yellows (not mustard yellow!) - pretty much fall colors - look pretty. In the summertime/spring: pinks, yellows, purples (pastels).
  • Use lighter colors on your fingernails, and use the vibrant, bold colors on your toenails.
  • If you want a great new look you could dye your hair a different colour or a more natural colour. But ask your parents' permission first!
  • The make-up and hair are suggestions that look amazing on a large number of girls. If you want to do something different, such as braid your hair, or put it in a high ponytail, just look at yourself objectively in a mirror. If you like the look, great!
  • If you have a talent for nail polish designs, look up a design on YouTube and try to copy it!
  • Avoid dying your hair if you aren't certain about what you want. Keep in mind that you may not be able to rinse it out.


  • Over-exfoliating is bad for your skin.
  • If you apply nail polish too much, your nails will turn yellow and ugly, and you will have to keep them painted.
