But let’s be honest, keeping on top of it all can sometimes be very confusing and overwhelming; and you may just need a little extra help along the way.

To get you started, here are the five beauty tips from the Veet Beauty Secrets team: 

1. The right shorts for your body

5 Beauty secrets from the experts

There’s no need to hide your legs away this summer. With so many different shorts out there it’s not hard to find a pair that suit your body and show off your beautiful leg. No matter which style suits you, one style suits everyone: gorgeously smooth Veet legs. Once you’ve used Veet and have these lovely legs, dress them up in the style most suited to you:

  • Cropped: These shorts are cropped under the knee and are not good for short people as it can make a short person look even shorter. This look is most flattering if you are long and tall.

  • Ultra-Short: This cut looks best on shorter people as it lengthens the leg and creates the impression of having a lot more of it.  Avoid ultra-short shorts when you’re long and tall as this could show too much leg.

  • High Waisted: Another great pair of shorts that will create the impression of longer legs is the high waisted short. To create an even longer leg, pair with some snazzy heels. This look is also good for ladies who lack curves as this style can draw attention to your waist.

  • Bermuda: Don’t think that because you are a more curvaceous lady that shorts aren’t for you. Bermuda shorts, which end just above the knee, are extremely flattering for the more curvy body type.

2. Shopping for Shades...tip for Sunglasses

Be sure to purchase glasses according to your face shape, and don't try to match the colour of your sunglasses with the colour of your outfit (i.e. peach-coloured shades with a peach outfit is a big no-no.) Classic lenses and frames in black and brown work well with any outfit, and the right frame shape will make you look fashion-savvy and sophisticated.

3. Keep it Proportionate

5 Beauty secrets from the experts

Always carry a purse or handbag which is in proportion to your body size. Example: Very petite carry a small handbag not a large over powering handbag.

4. Which shoes suit your leg type?

If you have skinny legs, stay away from big shoes or shoes with thick heels. Thick shoes with skinny legs will make your legs look even skinnier and "twig" like. Thinner heels will make your legs look dainty in the good way. 

5. Choosing your colour

Hold different colours scarfs against your face to see what colour works best for you. Some colours dull you down and some makes your eyes pop. Emerald green works well for me and compliments my skin tone. See what works for you.
