What Makes You Feel Confident?!?
CIARRALORREN READERS TAKE ON CONFIDENCE
“I feel most confident in anything high-waisted; jeans, leggings. It shows off my curves while giving me the confidence to feel good about my body type. I also love having my hair in loose curls, I feel my most confident when I wear my hair down and curly.”
“A good pair of earrings always cheer me up for some reason, and I always feel very confident with a hat or sunglasses to accessorize my outfit. But, the most important thing is always my smile, because that’s when I feel like I could slay anything!”

“That’s a surprisingly tricky answer for me to answer, but I’m going to do my best! I feel most confident on the weekend, when I can dress up a little more and have more time to get ready for the day. I end up messing around for ages with hair and makeup, choosing what to wear, and that whole process is so much fun that it lifts my mood. By the time we head out for the day, I’m in a great mood and feeling confident. No matter what I end up wearing really.”
“It probably does sound cliche but as I am not always a confident person, I would have to say when I’ve got my hair and makeup done and a great outfit on I really do feel at my most confident.”

“Something that always makes me feel more confident is a stand-out pair of shoes! A good pair of chunky heels, black booties, and pink high top Vans with pom-poms are a few of the instant confidence boosters in my closet. I love being able to step out into the world with my best foot forward!“
“Where does my confidence come from? Well I’d say it comes from my mascara, my eyebrows, my perfect fitting jeans and sometimes the color black mixed with a pop of color. There’s just something about my eyelashes being long and the blackest black that makes me feel girlie and strong. I’ve never got my eyebrows waxed or threaded, there’s not much to get rid of, but there’s enough to work with. Thanks to my Anastasia BH Dipbrow Pomade I give myself the brows I’ve always wanted. And the color black…I mean who isn’t confident in black. It does so many things for me, it’s dope, it’s chic, it’s sexy, it’s a go-to and it’s the color that goes with everything.
But if I’m being honest my confidence doesn’t come from just the material things. My confidence comes from the way I’m feeling most of all. One thing I’ve always said is “when I feel good, I look good.” It doesn’t matter how many favorites I have in my closet, or how much mascara or how on fleek my eyebrows are, if my energy is down then I don’t feel confident. I don’t feel pretty and I don’t feel as fierce as I should.
Confidence is a beautiful thing to have and I feel it is a very important quality to have. Confidence means you see something and you believe in it. Confidence pushes you. Confidence makes you stronger. Confidence makes you fearless and sometimes invincible.”
“Confidence comes from within, just being comfortable in my own skin is what works for me. But…a little red lipstick and kick ass stilettos definitely do the trick.”

“I feel most confident when I put on my mascara. My natural hair color is a light/medium blonde, which causes my eyelashes to be almost nonexistent without mascara. When I put mascara on I feel like a new person and I love it.“
A Note From The Editor
I just wanted to thank each and every one of you for submitting responses for my first weekly questionnaire. I feel so beyond blessed to have such amazing followers who are strong, confident individuals that support every endeavor I attempt! None of this would be possible without you all, so thank you! x
Now…as for my response!
“Simply put…a tan! It’s amazing how much a sun-kissed complexion transforms my mind and body and instantly enhances my natural features and confidence! However, I prefer a natural tan straight from the sun (using SPF, of course). Luckily for me, my olive skin bronzes extremely easy during the summer months so I’ve never had to resort to a fake tan from a salon or any bronzing body products. There’s just something about having golden brown skin that provides a healthy glow inside and out, makes my eyes pop and just generally makes me happier! Let’s just say I’m not looking forward to the winter months!”
Please be sure to submit responses for the following question to firstname.lastname@example.org before next Sunday!!
