I can spend four hours in front of the mirror trying to fix myself up, but I always look like a mess. No amount or type of makeup seems to look good on me, but not wearing any also looks bad. No clothes fall right on me. I either look too fat (even though I'm actually pretty skinny) or what little bit of boobs and curves I have disappear and I look like a stick.
What can I do?

Good skin. This requires diet and exercise, and vitamins. When you have naturally good skin you won't need much makeup.
Hair care. Get rid of split ends and go to a hair stylist and have them give you a great cut that frames your face and is low maintenance. Not something you have to style extensively just for it to look decent, you want a look that will be cute if you have to run out the door in 10 minutes if necessary. Also pay attention to the health of your hair and use products that give adequate moisture and conditioning.
Gym. Tone your body and get to a healthy weight. Develop your muscles and don't just be one of those girls that only does cardio and eats salads. Lift weights to get tones and curves. Clothes will look good on you when you look good.
Shopping. Buy clothes that fit you. Build your wardrobe and get classic pieces that fit you just right so you can coordinate them with anything you have. Find out what are your best colors and wear them closer to your face and buy colors that make your skin glow. Are you a WARM or COOL? Also wear jewelry, it adds interest to your outfit and helps you *sparkle*.
CONFIDENCE! After you have followed my advice you'll be looking good. That means you need to act like it. Walk like you know you're the baddest bitch because you are. Love yourself. If this is hard to do, put some sexy music on and wear the cutest outfit you have. Dance in high heels and a cute/sexy outfit on in the mirror. Look at yourself and pay attention to your best features. If you do this for 15 minutes everyday you'll start seeing yourself in a new light. Be comfortable with your womanhood and your beauty. Know that you are worthy and deserve all things good in life. Believe it or not, this outlook can affect your aura which shows in your looks.
