1. Funny is Beautiful

Have you ever been around someone who is afraid to let go and laugh uproariously for fear of how she’ll look? Yeah me too. What’s sad about that is that laughing is fun and every girl looks great with a big smile on her face. That’s one of the beauty lessons from Melissa McCarthy that everyone should learn. And she aims to make it happen by doing her best to get everyone cracking up.

2. Wear What’s Comfortable

There’s no doubt that even if you’re a rocking a great outfit, but you’re uncomfortable, it’s going to show. Tight shoes or pinching pants don’t feel good and people are going to pick up on that. Melissa McCarthy chooses clothes that flatter her fabulous figure (unless she’s wearing a costume for her movies), but that are comfy. Remember the tunic and pants she wore to MTV Movie Awards? I can guarantee she felt as great as she looked.

3. Try the Smoky Eye

Just about anyone can rock this look and Melissa McCarthy is absolutely no exception. She went all out smoky for a recent event and it did so much for her look. It helped her eyes pop, gave her a sexy glow and made her entire face stand out in photos – in a good way. If you’ve never tried the smudged gloriousness of the smoky eye, you should go give it a try. Right now!

4. Be Proud of Yourself

Melissa McCarthy doesn’t hide the fact that she’s not a size 0 like so many of the actresses on the big screen. That helps a lot of women identify with her. And she’s famously quoted for saying, “It’s pretty damn good. I’m right here at the moment, and I’m OK with it.” What she wants women to know is that they should be proud of their success and if they’re halfway to their weight loss goals, they should celebrate, not spend too much time thinking about how far they still have to go.

5. Looks Aren’t All That Matter

Here’s another great Melissa McCarthy quote for you. “Women are more than just bodies.” True, right? There’s a lot more to all of us than just what we look like. That doesn’t mean you can’t play up what you have, but it does mean that your fierce intelligence, skills at sewing or your new promotion also play into who you are. Love life by fostering those things and your beauty will shine right through.

6. You Gain Confidence with Age

This is for all you girls in your teens and 20s. You are probably going to have trouble believing me here, but you get more confident and happier with your looks as you get older. It seems strange because aging isn’t always something that people call beautiful, but when you move past worrying about what others think and get comfortable in your own skin, you start to feel better about how you look and see yourself the way others have been for your entire life. That is – beautiful.

7. We’re All a Work in Progress

We all cycle through times when we feel like we look good and times when we might not. That’s because we are all working on ourselves constantly. What you love now when it comes to hair and make-up might make you cringe in a decade. Anyone who was in junior high in the early 90s knows what I’m talking about. You are a work in progress and that’s beautiful.
