Romantic with a Dramatic undercurrent
Your position on the Yin/Yang scale is: soft Yin with a slight Yang undercurrent. Physically, you are delicate in bone structure and soft in body type, with delicate and full facial features (eyes, lips, cheeks). This is your extreme Yin foundation, which is overpoweringly dominant. Your slight Yang undercurrent comes from a slight sharpness to your bone structure, possibly shoulders, jawline, or nose. Innately, you are artistic, sensitive, eerily magnetic, and extraordinarily charming (Yin). As a hidden attraction, you possess steely resolve, unrelenting drive, enormous will, and a bold, creative and innovative outlook on life (Yang). Again, with your inner nature, the Yin is dominant, the Yang secondary. While both must be evident in your appearance, it is vital to keep them in their natural order. This may confuse you at times; the Yang qualities may seem to be such strong characteristics that your might be seduced into believing they are your major qualities as well as the source of your strength. This is not true! The old saying, "You'll catch more flies with honey," was created specifically for you!
Always bear in mind that you are a Romantic first and foremost. Your Dramatic undercurrent should always be used in small doses to theatrically add high-fashion flair to your appearance. It subtly sharpens and focuses your look as an after-thought, while the Yin foundation of delicacy, feminine beauty, charm, and grace provides the cornerstone of your look. It is not a substitution. It is only a slight addition to express that extra bit of Yang present in your being.
To express your soft Yin/slight Yang total essence, we want to develop an appearance that could best be described as: Femme Fatale Chic.
Your overall direction is to showcase your curvy body with elegantly soft and fluid clothing, always distinctly defining the waist. At the same time, frame your beautiful face with an abundance of intricate detail and accessories, including lavish hair and makeup. This provides your Yin basis.
On tope of this, your Yang undercurrent is expressed through strategic tapering and sharp shoulders, with shoulder pads a must. Also important to express your strength and assurance is an ensemble-approach that inspires head-to-toe outfits, with very sophisticated and glamorous accessories that suggest drop-dead entrances that suggest drop-dead entrances!
Lines are always curvy, while shapes are rounded and ornate. Fabrics provide extra softness by being lightweight and ultra-draped. Stiff fabrics, straight lines, and geometry are to be avoided at all costs! They will make you seem severe, cold, and even slightly dumpy.
Detail is both intricate and lavish. Excess detail is utterly sophisticated on you, as long as it is used sensually and creatively instead of innocently or "little girlishly." Bows, jabots, ruffles, draped necklines, gathers, tucks, scalloped edges, lacy trim, and anything bejeweled are stunning and elegant on you.
Jewelry should also have the intricate workmanship/lavish effect so evocative of your lovely sensitivity and powerful charm. Here again, shapes are always rounded and ornate, with clusters, dangles, swirls, and curves being the graceful complement to your look. Avoid geometrics and chunky pieces, which are simply at odds with your delicate bone structure. Pieces can and should definitely be large and glittery-size gives you the extra drama. You're really at your most sophisticated when you seem to be "dripping in diamonds." This can be as literal as your pocketbook affords, but bear in mind that there are enormous amounts of stunning faux jewelry available today, as well.
Even your most conservative, daytime attire needs at least a hint of glamour and delicacy-perhaps a crisply clustered or swirled earring with a tiny sparkle or dangle, for example. Suggesting your innate glamour is the clearest way to visually express your confidence and self-assuredness.
Your accessories should be chosen with great love and care. Shoes are delicate and either very tapered, strappy, or ornate. No chunky clunkers or angular Italian pumps, please! Bags are small, rounded, and delicate; they should be made of exquisite leather or fabric and have narrow shoulder straps and detail of gathering or trim. In fact, by looking at your when you are completely pulled together, we should get the feeling that inside your closet is an entire wardrobe of shoes, bags, and jewelry! Your artistry is most clearly expressed in this area, so go as wild as your passions dictate here.
The final touches of sophistication, elegance, and elan in your appearance come from an elaborate finish of well-coiffed hair and polished makeup.
Hair should always be soft and stylized, never sleek, severe, or uncared-for. If you keep your hair long, it will definitely require an ornate set. You'll work best with a softly teased style, just be sure it never looks stiff! If your hair is short, you may opt for a wave or perm to strive for a 1930's marcelled look, which is quite glamorous on you. An asymmetrical cut is possible if it includes cascading curls or waves.
Your makeup should be watercolor blended with no angles or heavy contouring, which is very severe on you. Colors range from the pastel to the right, but leave the smoky and neutral for someone else! They'll only look stark and hard on you. Even in a conservative daytime setting, they are not at all helpful in getting your message across. On the other hand, a bit of sparkle and gloss is more in keeping with your essence: subtle for day, but an ultra-glittering face in the evening expresses your inner sparkle to perfection! Even dab your hair with a little glitter-dust if your dare!
This is the best way to clearly express your stunning combination of arresting magnetism, feminine delicacy, crystal-clear logic, and bold creativitiy. You are both a ravishing beauty and a powerful leader. Please don't leave either part of yourself out of your appearance!
It is by always remember to softly-pedal your drive and authoritative spirit that you succeed in life most brilliantly. Your "steel hand" requires a velvet glove or it'll be just too hard for us to take, and you'll court rejection!
If you fail to make your Romantic charm the strong foundation in your appearance, you will come across as strident and irritating. Without your natural grace and delicacy, your powerful magnetism will instantly lose its pull.
On the other hand, if you don't take bold risks with your appearance, if you don't take bold risks with your appearance, if you don't opt for some creative flair and original, high-fashion sophistication, you run the risk of being dismissed as a dilettante, a courtesan, or simply a bored matron! Have a clear concept of each outfit, execute it with passion, and don't be afraid of getting some quite powerful attention.
Let us be drawn to you first by your extra-glittering charm and beauty, then impress us with your clarity, your knowledge, your talents, and your innovative ideas. Believe me, with this combination, your success is assured.
