The key to looking great and simply amazing as a curvy girl is knowing what your true size is. Way too often we get caught up in the number display on the back of our booty rather than if the garment actually fits the booty. Getting a proper measurement, or knowing how to do it yourself, can save a lot of time and headache for you.
Check out the video above as my good friend and plus size stylist, Reah Norman shows us the correct way to measure our curves.

1. Beautiful Beauties!
Here at #TeamBeautiful, we're all for highlighting fierce celebs and when they are up on their style game, we give a good "yessssss!" The best place for celebs to showcase their lovely beauty looks is on Instagram and we rounded up a few of our favorite posts. Get inspired by these beauties to go for a full-on makeover or just a little pop of color to perk up your day.
2. Rihanna's Bronzed Cheek
Rihanna announced her upcoming MAC VivaGlam collection to her 10 million followers on Instagram with a fly promo pic. Her MAC holiday collection from last year was accompanied my a similar shot of Rih with her red lip and bronzed cheek, but this new one (complete with a banged-out blond bob) elevated the look. We're excited to see the new goodies when it hits stores January 21st.
3. Gabby and Sanaa's Red Lippies
We love the fact that Gabrielle Union and Sanaa are totally BFFs, and what do real BFFs do? They share lipstick colors, of course! Red lips are always a classic look for anyone.
4. Lupita Gets Glam Ready
We're having a total Lupita Nyong'o moment and we're not ashamed. The star on the rise shared an IG pic of her getting ready for her CBS Morning interview. We're swooning over her pretty pink cheeks against her mahogany complexion.
5. Nicki Debuts New Hair
Nicki loves her some wigs. She even made our list as an artist with one of the best hair moments in 2013. So, it's no surprise that she'd bring in 2014 with something fresh. This auburn violet mane is perfect with this simple contour.
6. Kelly Glows As The Judge
Kelly Rowland's makeup always looks perfect on X-Factor and this picture is seriously glowing off the screen. The makeup application may be a little heavy for an everyday look, but the shimmery accent at the corner of her eyes is good addition to your daily routine.
7. Eva Knows The Art of The Cateye
Eva obviously has access to some of the best makeup artists in the industry, but we can't get enough of her model-worthy IG pics. Even when she's just relaxed, she always has beat face and this winged-eye is incredible.
8. The Jenners Serve Kissy Face
Red lips will always be unforgettable, but a fun twist would be to add a pop of pink, similar to Kendall and Kylie's sweet pouts.
9. June Ambrose Appreciates Lipstick and Diamonds
June Ambrose obviously knows a thing or two (or several) about clothes, but the superstar stylist posted this sultry pic of a vamp lip that absolutely slays.
