For Women Only: 4 Tips for Overcoming Perfectionism Right Now

HOW TO STOP BEING A PERFECTIONIST AND LOVE YOURSELF INSTEAD

  • 1. Recognize Perfectionists = Robots

    So many women expect perfection from themselves in every way.

    Advertising agencies and the media reinforce this idea of perfectionism—especially in ads for women.

    But human beings are fallible, changeable, and diverse. Our beauty lies in our differences and our ability to learn from mistakes and grow.

    If we were “perfect,” we’d be robots—and that would be boring!

    But, since we’ve bought into this idea that we must be perfect, we waste energy being hard on ourselves when we fail to live up to impossible standards. Imagine freeing up that energy and spending it in other ways.

    You can start now by accepting that “imperfections” are part of what makes life—and you!—most beautiful. Here’s how to do that:

  • 2. Be Prepared for a Little Discomfort

    As a perfectionist, easing up on yourself can feel a little scary at first.

    If you wear a full face of makeup everyday, taking it off to reveal your unique beauty underneath can feel intimidating.

    If you expect perfection from yourself as a mom, partner or wife allowing yourself to make mistakes, apologize, and learn from them can feel super vulnerable.

    But accepting mistakes and imperfections is what lets us to grow.

    And that initial discomfort is a small price to pay for a life spent evolving, learning and expanding.

  • 3. Practice Giving Yourself Permission

    It’s unrealistic to expect yourself to suddenly be 100% comfortable with all the things we’ve been told all our lives are “flaws.”

    In fact, expecting that is a different kind of perfectionism!

    Instead, getting comfortable with imperfection is a practice.

    Try being gentle and flexible with yourself in little, daily ways. Give yourself permission to be “imperfect.”

    In doing so, you might find that it gradually grows into a greater sense of ease.

  • 4. Develop Your Own Standard

    When you get down to it, our culture’s demand for perfectionism is pretty ridiculous.

    Companies designed this perfectionist idea to reinforce our fears that something is wrong with us, and get us to buy their products to fix it.

    If you take a step back—enough to see that this is made-up and arbitrary—eventually a whole lot more space and freedom opens up.

    That’s when you can develop your own standard for yourself—which is a whole lot more fun than trying to live up to someone else’s.

Is there a woman who hasn’t dabbed a little lipstick on her cheeks for a quick touch-up?

“The whole idea of less is more, that women shouldn’t be slaves to dozens of makeup products, is what I really believe in,” said Cindy Joseph, a makeup artist and model who’s pared down her own cosmetics kit to just a few items. Three of them are from her new line of multiple-use cream sticks called BOOM!.

Jennifer Aniston is a BOOM! lover!

The line is not just for Boomers like Joseph. “BOOM! is the sound of a revolution in cosmetics,” she says. “Cosmetic companies are constantly adding products; I’m taking away. Mine is the only company that is pro-aging, not antiaging.

Jennifer Aniston believes in aging gracefully and not over-doing it on the makeup. When asked by Self Magazine what is in her purse when she leaves for the day, she said, “Boomstick Color: It’s an all-in-one stain for eyes, cheeks and lips that’s so much fun.”

“There is this pressure in Hollywood to be ageless,” said Aniston. “I also understand that age is kind of awesome... Don’t over-product — that’s the other thing.”

Beauty Makeup artist and model Cindy Joseph says “less is more as women age”. Her new line is a super multitasker.

Judging by the photos and videos, Joseph, who recently turned 60, needs no makeup at all. She’s one of those Emmylou Harris beauties with lovely features, luminous skin and long silver hair, who spends just a few minutes a day on her face before she’s out the door. As women age, she says, looking fresh, rather than made up, is the key.

The biggest makeup mistake that middle-aged women make is putting on too much under eye concealer,” she said. “At home, it might look OK, but in the daylight, it just looks like a bunch of gunk under your eyes. The older you get, the less makeup you should wear. It’s not a blank canvas anymore.”

After growing up in the Bay Area – Mission San Jose High School, Fremont, class of ’69 – she moved to Paris in the early ’80s and later to New York.

“I was a classic California flower child,” she says. “I went to Haight Ashbury on the weekends, the Fillmore West, the Avalon Ballroom. I was at the center of it all. People still ask me to this day: ‘Are you from San Francisco?’”

Joseph married young, had two kids and began her makeup artist career in San Francisco in the late ’70s, working for Macy’s, Esprit de Corp and others.

“I always had the smallest kit and the fewest products of any of my colleagues,” she remembers. She let her hair go gray in her late 40s, and just like that, she was spotted on a New York sidewalk by a scout for the fashion photographer Steven Miesel and has been a model ever since, featured in ads for Target, L.L. Bean, Dolce & Gabbana, DKNY, Olay, Nivea and others.

About a year ago, she went into the cosmetics business herself. “I’d done makeup for two decades and when I created this line, I created what I would want in my own kit,” she says. “I wanted to do a line that was not about hiding, but was about revealing.” The overall effect, she says, is a dewy, glowing face.

“When somebody says to you, ‘Wow, did you fall in love?’
That’s successful makeup.”

What people are saying about us...

“By far this is the best ‘make-up’ for women over 40. I feel the need to brighten up just a little. Time is showing on my face, which is beautiful, but a splash of Boom is the perfect accompaniment of a wonderful life.” — Susan
