My Dressing Your Truth Makeover
You guys! I’ve been bursting at the seams, waiting to share this story and my makeover (*squeal!*) with you.
You see, the past few months have been a total life changer for me. I’ve always believed that being healthy was way more than just the food we eat or the exercise we do. Most of us already know that getting adequate sleep and managing our stress levels also play a big role in defining our health. But I think self-love and acceptance play a big part, too. Today’s story is about a makeover program I took part in that not only changed my outside appearance, but it also totally transformed the way I look at myself.
If you’re a regular reader of Primally Inspired, you most likely already know that I’m a total girly girl and a sucker for all things fashion and beauty. So back in January, I took part in a free online beauty profiling course from a company called Dressing Your Truth. TM
Fashion? Beauty? FREE?! Um…hello, sign me up! Obviously, this was right up my alley and I couldn’t resist 🙂
Little did I know at the time, that little free beauty profiling course would forever change my life.

At first glance, Dressing Your Truth seemed to me like a fun Dressing Program that would teach me how to look my best. Oh this will be so fun, I thought. But let me tell you, while it definitely does teach you how to look your best, it is SO. MUCH. MORE. What I have learned about myself and others has been priceless.
What is Dressing Your Truth?
Dressing Your Truth is an online makeover system that helps you fully understand and be confident about your unique type of beauty.
The fashion world teaches us how to put beauty on, but Dressing Your Truth teaches you how to bring your true beauty out.
And unlike most beauty and makeover programs that only focus on color and skin tones, Dressing Your Truth takes into account your whole unique person.
It examines your energy level, your facial features, your behavioral tendencies, your personality characteristics, your inner feelings, how you handle different situations, your body movements, your natural gifts, and much more to help you understand your natural expression. Once you figure out your natural expression through the tools they provide, Dressing Your Truth then teaches you how to embrace it, love it, and how to outwardly dress and accessorize to express your best self every single day!
My Makeover! Look at me – I am Dressing My Truth!
This is ME!!!! Really, truly ME! Why, hello there, I am Kelly and I am a TYPE 1 BeautySM. I am happy and positive and you’ll always catch me smiling and laughing at something. I will forever be a kid at heart. I see and bring out the good in everyone. I love having fun, going on adventures and meeting new people. I am instant friends with whoever I meet and people enjoy being arond me. Oh and I’m super creative and am always thinking up new ideas that I want to try 🙂
Check out my before picture…..
Does my “before” picture portray myself as described above? No way! That picture and the old me totally don’t outwardly express who I am, does it?!
Dressing Your Truth taught me exactly how to dress and accessorize so that my true self and inner beauty perfectly reflects my outward expression. It even taught me how I should wear my makeup and showed me what hair cuts and styles would look best on me! Love!
Dressing Your Truth – the Course
The free Dressing Your Truth course taught me about the natural expressions of beauty. Every woman expresses one of the 4 Types of beauty. Through the course, I was able to recognize my specific Type of beauty. After that free course, I became
slightly totally obsessed.
I stalked the Dressing Your Truth YouTube channel, I found their Facebook and Pinterest pages, and I read every blog post I could find. I talked non-stop about Dressing Your Truth to my friends and family (sorry guys!). And I wanted to know more! So I went ahead and bought the Dressing Your Truth course and am so glad I did (I highly recommend it for anyone who is on the fence about it). Believe me when I say it’s a life changer in more ways than one.
Because of what they taught me in the course, I know exactly what colors, cuts, design lines, textures, patterns, and fabrications that look the best on me so that I can communicate exactly who I am without even saying a word. It taught me what makeup colors look the best on me, what hair colors and styles I should have (it gave me the courage to chop 10 inches off my hair!), what type of jewelry will make my face pop, etc.
After buying and taking the course, I got rid of all my old clothes that weren’t expressing my true self. What a liberating change! I’ve never been more inspired in my closet than I am now. It’s so easy for me to get dressed everyday because I absolutely love every single thing in my closet. I know the clothes and accessories in my closet perfectly express my outer and inner beauty. And when I go shopping, I can sift through the racks and quickly pick out what I know will look great on me and what will express my true nature and beauty….this has made shopping so fun and easy!
And I kid you not, every single change I made based on their teaching was totally perfect for me and brought out my true self and beauty more than anything I’ve ever done before. I kicked and screamed at some of the changes, but now I know they were totally right. (When they told me I shouldn’t wear black or gray, I almost died. Practically ¾ of my wardrobe was black or gray!)
I have never in my life received more compliments (even from complete strangers!) than I have in the past few months. It really works! Because of my inward and outward change, my friends and family grew curious and are now all hooked on Dressing Your Truth, too! Here’s a pic of my beautiful TYPE 3 SM Mom Dressing Her Truth: 🙂
Remember how I said Dressing Your Truth is way more than just a makeover program that teaches you how to look amazing? Let me tell you just one way it has been a game changer for me.
Like most women, I spent a fair share of time and energy countering who I really am. Many times I tried to be someone who I thought I should be or tried to be someone who I was told I should be. But Dressing Your Truth taught me how to embrace my true self. What I previously thought were negative qualities about myself, are actually some of my best gifts to this world. This, my friends was so life changing and liberating for me.
After taking the whole course and implementing my Dressing Your Truth Makeover, getting dressed even turned into an affirmation for me. Every single day I’m putting on my outward expression that reminds me of who I am. I can now look in the mirror and ask myself, “how authentically am I living that?” It reminds me each day to love and live true to myself. And I noticed that when I am living authentically, I feel and look the most beautiful and confident 🙂
Are you living true to yourself? Does your outward expression communicate that to yourself and others? Have you taken the free Beauty Profiling course yet? Leave me a comment and let’s talk!
