How To Look Drop Dead Gorgeous

How to Look Drop Dead Gorgeous

Want to be noticed and admired for your breathtaking looks? If so, then you have to work your hardest to maintain healthy skin, tone your body and to find the clothes and make-up that make the most of your looks. Nobody said it would be easy, but when every person in the room turns to stare at how amazing you look, you'll know that the effort was worth it!


  1. Take care of everyday upkeep.Scheduling time for hygiene makes sure you get it done, and (even better) helps you see yourself as a priority. Here are some basic guidelines:
    • Wash your face twice daily. Even if you're super exhausted at night, try to at least take off your makeup and use a moisturizer.
    • Brush your teeth twice per day. Don't brush more than that because the enamel on your teeth will start to wear. Try to floss every night, as well.
    • Shower once a day, at least. That doesn't mean you have to wash your hair once a day (and sometimes you shouldn't — keep reading for more on that), but your body should be cleaned daily.
    • Take care of your nails. Nails should be trimmed at least once a week; if you want, you can even try a Manicure or Pedicure.
    • Remove unwanted body hair regularly. Plucking eyebrows, shaving legs and armpits, and getting rid of other stray hairs doesn't have to be part of your beauty routine. If it is, though, try to do it on a consistent schedule.
    • Make sure you have clean laundry. Fresh clothes will both look better and make you feel more attractive.
  2. Maintain a healthy mane.Get split ends trimmed every 6 to 8 weeks, and touch up any highlights or color around the same time. Here are some other ways to maximize your locks:
    • Choose a hairstyle that suits your face shape. How you wear your hair can highlight different parts of your face, so choose a style that brings out what you like. For instance, if you have sharp cheekbones and a wide jaw, wearing your hair pulled back will make these more prominent, whereas flowing layers will make a round face seem longer. You can try braiding the side of your braid for a half shaved look, do a messy ponytail, fishtail braid or curl it. Heat may damage it so try using the headband method.
    • Don't wash your hair every day. Unless you have baby-fine hair that's thin and gets weighed down easily, consider washing your hair every other day instead. On the between day, use a boar-bristle brush to move the tiny bit of oil through your hair — it will make it look shiny and bouncy.
    • Avoid over-styling your hair. One or two days a week, give your hair a break from blow dryers, curling irons, and straighteners. The heat can damage your hair and make it look brittle.
  3. Make your face look fantastic.Even if your hair and your clothes are just OK, how you take care of your face can push you from "pretty" to "drop-dead gorgeous." Here's how to make the most of your features, with or without wearing makeup:
    • Get glowing skin. In addition to washing and moisturizing twice a day, avoid breakouts by keeping your hands away from your face and sleeping on clean pillowcases. Spot-treat pimples using salicylic acid or benzoyl peroxide. Or, for a quick overnight fix, crush a few uncoated aspirin tablets (the plain white ones), mix with a few drops of water, and leave the paste on any zits while you sleep.
    • Shape your brows. Start by only plucking a few hairs, then see how it looks and remove more from there if necessary. For less painful plucking, avoid doing it during the week before your period. Or, you can hold ice cubes on your skin for a minute before you start tweezing.
    • Wear makeup that suits your face. Check out some of the tutorials in How to Apply Makeup, or visit a department store for a consultation. (Most makeup counters will put makeup on you and teach you techniques for free, but it doesn't hurt to ask.)
    • Follow the eyes-or-lips rule. If you wear makeup, focus the drama on either your eyes or your lips — not both. If you have a great pucker and wear red lipstick to make it look amazing, skip the heavy eyeliner and eyeshadow, and do one coat of mascara. If you want to highlight your eyes, go easy on the lips with a light stain or chapstick. Blusher works well too but not over the top!
    • Be Yourself Don't try to be someone you're not. A boy or girl should like you for who you are not about what you look like. Just maintain good hygiene and you're good to go.
  4. Wear what looks good on you.What suits another drop-dead gorgeous girl might not look great on you, and vice versa. The good news: figuring out what probably looks good on you is easier than you think. Try these tips:
    • Decide whether you should wear warm or cool tones. Wearing the right color can make your skin glow, while the wrong one can make it look washed out or splotchy. The best way to do this is looking at the inside of your wrist under bright light — do your veins look blue or green under your skin? If it's green, wear warms; if it's blue, you'll probably look better in cools.
      • Warm colors include bright yellows, yellow-based reds and greens, browns, gold, cream and anything with a yellow or orange tint to it.
      • Cold colors are made up of "jewel tones" such as deep purples, blues, and greens, black, white, and "cool" pastels with blue tones.
    • Take a glance at what is in your closet. Chances are, you already gravitate toward colors that look good on you — and it's OK to stick to those.
    • Make sure your clothes fit. They should cover you adequately without being baggy, and be fitted without squeezing too tightly. If a lot of your clothes are bigger than you'd like, take them to a seamstress or tailor to be altered — individual pieces shouldn't cost much. (You can usually find one at your local dry cleaner's.)
  5. Tone up.Exercising regularly will not only make your physique look better, it'll also boost your confidence and your endorphins. Try to set aside time to exercise for at least 30 minutes, three or four times per week, or get involved in an athletic sport. If you need a jumpstart, try these articles:
  6. Get plenty of sleep.Sleeping too little gives you red, baggy eyes and a lackluster physical presence. Studies have also shown that sleeping too little causes overeatingand weakens your immune system. If you struggle with insomnia, read How to Sleep When You Are Not Tired.

  • Question
    Sometimes I feel pretty, but other times I feel ugly. I always find myself comparing myself to others. I'm 17, would being a teen have something to do with this?
    wikiHow Contributor
    Community Answer
    Yes, these are very normal feelings to have at your age. Teenagers are constantly comparing themselves to others. Just know that everyone else feels the same way you do, even the most confident person you know. Even adults have days they don't feel so attractive, though. Keep in mind that we are our own worst critics, and try not to focus too much on appearance. There's a million things about you that make you interesting and beautiful that have nothing to do with your looks.

  • Keep hydrated by regularly drinking water. Water is very important as a hydrated body is generally less tired. Also, you will look less tired, as your skin will be hydrated and your cells will be plump, which will lead to less visible wrinkles and a youthful glow.
  • Smile - remember, a smile is the best makeup a person can wear.
  • Brush your hair at least twice a day.
  • Brush your hair with a comb, not a brush. Try not to avoid using heat and allow your hair dry naturally.
  • Exfoliate your face skin, body and lips up to three times a week to remove the dead skin, but don't exfoliate anymore than that especially on sensitive areas such as your face and lips as it can damage the skin.
  • Try not to wear to much makeup, as it can make you look old. You don't want to over do it. If your face has such a thick layer of makeup that your skin doesn't look real, you probably have too much.
  • Do not pop pimples - you will just make them swell even more and will likely leave a scar.
  • Do not leave your fingernails unkempt. (Clean or polished fingernails look nicer. Make sure to get the dirt out from underneath them.)


  • Do not overbrush your teeth. Two minutes is enough. Do not brush them hard, let the toothbrush do the work for you. Brushing them too vigorously and for too long will wear them away.
