5 Beauty Tips to Boost Your Confidence Before You Pitch
When you are in the middle of one of the most important moments of your life, you have to make sure your game is on and you look your best. Looking your best involves a number of things that all go into making the best you what people see when they look at you.
So if you think you can get up and just go because, ya know… your presentation rocks, think again. It is going to take a little more to make a great impression.
Here are five beauty tips to boost your confidence for that pitch.
You have to get your rest. This is the number one thing to do to make you not only look your best but feel your best. Whatever you have to do the night before, you need to do so that you can get adequate sleep to feel energized and ready.
This may sound like a no-brainer or even unnecessary, but some women don’t realize the importance of using make up as a part of their beauty routine for work. There are actual studies that show makeup makes a woman come off more competent, believe it or not.
Another no brainer, but you would not believe how many people just take a shirt from the closet to their backs and go. You need to press your clothing with starch in order to communicate professionalism
For your pitch, go with a power hairstyle. Either a nice slicked ponytail or curled locks. If you have natural hair, you should put in the effort the night before for a cute and purposeful hairstyle in the morning. Bantu knots or twists are a good go-to.
This is so important. Please do not walk into a pitch with dirty or scuffed shoes. Put in the time to wipe them down or even use shoe polish to cover any marks.
Doing a pitch is just as much about looking the part as it is knowing about the part. These are basic beauty tips to build off of for your next big opportunity.
