Your position on the Yin/Yang scale is: balanced, with a Yin influence. Physically, you are basically symmetrical with slightly rounded edges (soft body type and features). Innately, you are controlled, elegant, and calm with an added refined touch of understated femininity and gracious sophistication.
Always remember that you are a Classic first and foremost! Your Romantic undercurrent should always be used in small doses to gracefully soften the overall effect of your appearance. It is not a substitution. It is an addition to express that extra bit of Yin present in your being.
Your silhouette is smooth, draped, and flared, composed of softly flowing lines (clean, not clingy) that are very controlled and symmetrical. Soft edges and smoothly rounded shapes are most important, particularly in details (necklines, sleeves, etc.). Accessories are also clean, controlled, and slightly feminine without being fussy or ornate. Jewelry shapes are kept in controlled clusters and circles or ovals.
A soft and smooth hairstyles bluntly cut with slight feathering around the face is perfect to complement your refined femininity. Moderate length is best, unless you are willing to spend extra time styling your hair, in which case slightly longer hair that is beautifully waved in smooth and symmetrical dips can be quite elegant.
Your makeup will be the watercolor effect, which is artfully blended in circular motions. Soft color on the eyes (within your palette), rosy cheeks, and slightly glossy lips are used to suggest your Yin undercurrent in the most subtle fashion and complete your head-to-toe appearance most graciously.
This is the best way for the world to see your stunning combination of understated sophistication and refined femininity. We always like to see just a bit of the charmer, the enchantress, the alluring angle (visually expressed through the soft touches and rounded or flowing shapes), without upsetting the basic foundation of the traditional, the elegant, the everlasting (which is visually expressed through your use of controlled lines and softly understated tailoring).
Be careful not to go overboard with your Romantic touches. When you opt for the overtly glamorous, instead of refined sophistication you become a little gaudy.
Too much jewelry, too clingy dresses, over-glitzy makeup and too many curls look silly on you. Your underlying Classic approach to your overall appearance is essential.
On the other hand, please don't go to the opposite extreme by trying to "strengthen" your features. The result here is not at all authoritative, it's simply frumpy and inelegant! You negate your most powerful tool this way, which is your soft-spoken sophistication. When you overly tailor and sculpt yourself with excess angles and geometry, the very best part of your being is totally obscured. (Also, the softer lines of your body are not well served by straight lines; they tend to make you look a little dumpy!)
By far the most effective way to allow your star quality to gleam its brightest is to appreciate your soft symmetry and refined elegance. When this priceless combination is clearly evident in your appearance, we are drawn to your immediately. You are a lady we will strive and toil in excess for, so much do we believe in your. One well-thought word of sincere approval from your elegant lips is music to our ears!
It's almost as though you remind us of a gentler age, where manners and form were considered gateways to achievement. When your gracious manners and refined form are clearly visible, we are uplifted to new plateaus of graceful living. An invaluable quality to project in a modern society!
SOFT CLASSIC PHYSICAL PROFILE
