DECLUTTERING VS. HOARDING CLOTHES | INGRID NIETO Vlogs

Here are some of my wardrobe decluttering tips that I’ve used through the years. It’s important that you do an assessment of where you currently are in life, what you do and what your activities are. You may be holding on to a lot of things that no longer serve you and your lifestyle.

Wardobe Mishaps That Make You Look Unpolished and Unprofessional | INGRID NIETO Vlogs

Looking polished and professional doesn’t mean you always have to be decked in designer goods from head to toe. Sometimes, it’s the simple things like making sure your clothes are pressed, there are no loose threads and you wear styles that are apt for your body type and proportions. See what little habits you may be guilty of that give off the impression of being unkempt and unprofessional.

DISCOVERING MY COLOR SEASON

I remember going through a quick color swatch during one of my classes at John Robert Powers many years ago. I was a teenager then and was completely clueless about the power of colors. I would randomly pick clothes that I thought looked cool or trendy without thinking so much if they were in the right color for my skin tone. The result? I ended up spending a lot of money on clothes that really didn’t make me look my best.

Discovering your color season will prove to be very helpful when you go shopping, get your hair dyed or even do your make-up. It’s a journey of self-discovery and acceptance–there really are times when a dress would look great on a model but have the opposite effect on you. There’d be moments when you try to replicate a make-up look but end up frustrated because you can’t seem to nail it. Don’t doubt your skills entirely; maybe the colors just aren’t right for you.

The Color Theory revolves around the four basic seasons: Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter. This doesn’t mean that your skin tone corresponds to the season of your present location. I live in sunny Metro Manila but my color season is neither rainy or sunny. :-p My natural hair color is black (which of course, due to vanity purposes, I have dyed since I graduated from college), my eye color is dark brown and my skin is light with warm undertones. Below are illustrations of the different color seasons.

Once you know your colors, it will be easier for you to tell if a dress or make-up shade is worth buying. Is it in your color or will it make you look washed-out? Will it make your skin glow? What hair color shades can you play around with? Watch the video below to learn more!
