We’ve all seen Ali Fedotowsky fall in and out of love, and then back in love again on TV. She is the blond cutie pie who caught Jake Pavelka’s attention against over 20 other female contestants on The Bachelor. She then made a slew of men fight for her love on The Bachelor spinoff, The Bachelorette. Ali Fedotowsky exudes a complete genuineness that captivated the men on the show, as well as all of America. Her girl-next-door look is fun, flirty and down-to-earth, and can be easily achieved with the tricks below.
If you want to look like the girl-next-door, stay away from makeup trends like smoky eyes, red lips and matte skin. Instead, go for something that is more natural.
On your eyes, use soft colors like taupe or light brown. Don’t wear eyeliner or at least go easy with it. Of course, no false eyelashes! Instead, use brown or black-brown colored mascara.
Instead of thick foundation, try covering with a tinted moisturizer. It gives your skin a dewy glow that is smooth yet natural.
Glossy lips create a sexy look that’s not overwhelming. Go for lip gloss with just a tint of color like soft pink or peach.
When I see a girl with bronzed skin, I think of her as someone fun and athletic who likes to play outside – total girl-next-door!
Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer is a wonderful product to use for gradual self tanning. It gives you an attractive, healthy-looking tan.
Dress down, but still sexy
A girl-next-door doesn’t wear 4-inch stilettos or tight mini skirts – a girl-next-door dresses easy breezy.
Try a flowing floral dress with flip flops, tank tops and jeans, or a fitted flannel shirt tucked into a pair of shorts. Think sexy but not over-the-top, cute but in a grown-up way.
This is the last and most important trick! A smile speaks a thousand words. It tells people that you are genuine, nice and approachable. Frankly, I think it makes anyone ten times prettier. So leave the ice princess thing at home and smile!
Although both The Bachelor and The Bachelorette have poor statistics of couples who do find true love, Ali Fedotowsky did walk away in bliss at the end of The Bachelorette. Till this day, she is still together with her chosen man, Roberto Martinez.
Because of her girl-next-door quality, I got hooked on Jake’s season of The Bachelor, and have been rooting for her to find true love ever since. I can’t wait to hear Ali and Roberto’s wedding news, as she is the cutest girl-next-door to ever be on The Bachelor franchise!
