Cookie Lyon’s fierce, over the top fashion sense can demand a rooms attention and receive it without protest. One thing that we can learn from Empire’s Cookie Lyon is that the right combination of your outfit, makeup and hairstyle can give your moral a boost of confidence regardless of the price tag or label. When you think of Cookie Lyon you think of a women who has all the odds against her yet she rises to the challenge of overcoming the obstacles in front of her. Her outfits are meticulously created and crafted from the everyday office attire to the night out on the town.
As Cookie Lyon states “The Streets ain’t made for everybody that’s why they made sidewalks” when creating your outfits push the envelope sometimes we can become comfortable with what we think other’s would find acceptable or what we are use to comfortably wearing. Begin the evolution in phases, choose a color that you have never worn and add it to your collection, if you are one that never accessorizes purchase some statement jewelry start with bold rings to add to your outfits, if your like me and never really wore hats this is the perfect season to experiment, and if you have never owned anything with animal print, purchase a clutch with an accent of it.
Cookie Lyons hair styles are unpredictable and edgy. Your hairstyle can say so much about you, especially if you are one to have the same hairstyle for the last couple of years. Embrace the change, experiment with your style. Unfortunately as we get older our hair becomes thinner and we won’t have the advantage that we have now. So create a small change if you don’t dare to change your color or style. Begin by adding a fashionable headband, or clip.
Flawless is the word that comes into mind when I think of Cookie Lyons makeup. She keeps it versatile with a spice of funk, I can easily say that this is an area that I have had my own issues experimenting with. If your like me and never wore a bold dark color before begin with your favorite shade just a tint darker and you will ease into it. I always wore my makeup with new colors and now I can easily say I love to add some color or sparkle to my eyeshadow.
Eye catching manicures are the last touch that Cookie adds to her outfits. We all can’t spend our time getting manicures all week and would probably take us out of our budgets but regardless if you are doing it at home yourself start by purchasing colors that you have never tried before, add accent colors on one nail, or add some bling to them.
Different seasons allow us to inspire change into our wardrobes regardless of the name brand or price tag, there are fashions that the everyday women can incorporate in their life. Create your fierce look and own it!
