Did you know that you only have 7 seconds to make a first impression?
That means that you’ve only got 7 seconds to blend in or pass as a woman! After that, people’s judgements have been cast and are almost impossible to change.
So how can you be sure that people see you as the fab female you truly are?
I won’t lie – having a pretty face helps, but it’s often the little details that make or break a first impression.
Keep reading to discover my top 5 tips for making a stunning first impression!
1. Set an intention
The first step to making a great impression is deciding WHAT impression you want to make …
Is your goal to blend in as just another girl going about her day … or is it to stick out as a gender bending fashion diva? Do you want to be noticed for your style, your sophistication … or maybe just your great legs?
Once you know your intention, it’s a lot easier to channel that energy through your appearance and interactions with people.
2. Check your accessories
A first impression has less to do with your natural born looks as it does with all the little details that make up your image. I’m talking about your clothes, makeup, hair, jewelry, shoes, etc.
Your shoes and bag in particular say loads about you, your fashion sense, and even your status – so make sure these accessories reflect the impression you are trying to make.
3. Don’t wear too much perfume
I know this seems like an obvious tip, but it must be said: Wearing too much perfume offends people and makes you seem like you are trying too hard! It’s a good way to ruin an otherwise great impression.
How much perfume is too much? Unless somebody is close enough to touch you, they should NOT be able to smell your perfume.
4. Be aware of your body language
Body language is important, ESPECIALLY when you are making a first impression. Your posture and body language should tell the world that you are a classy, confident woman who deserves respect.
If you really want to master feminine body language, try video taping yourself. You might discover some “surprises” – like jerky movements or slouched shoulders – that you weren’t aware of in real life.
5. Make eye contact
Your eyes reveal more about you than you probably realize. Avoiding eye contact gives the impression that you have low self esteem or have something to hide. Not what you need for a first impression! So be bold and look people straight in the eye. (And don’t forget to smile!)
