Often mistaken as naive, young or innocent, the Ingénue is actually a very strong woman. She may have a girlish figure and a high voice, but don’t let that be confused for youth or ignorance! Like the Baby’s Breath that first appears to be a small flower but is actually a very strong bush, the Ingénue is an amazingly tenacious woman. The flower is used to covers the stems in a bouquet of flowers. This girl also completes others with her beautiful creativity and encouraging heart.
Ingénues need to be true to their authentic personality or they may lose their confidence. This is also true with their image. When the Delicate Beauty dresses in heavy fabrics or dark colors (unless she is a combination), her look is overpowered and she may come across as a little girl trying to look grown up.
If you are an Ingénue, pay careful attention to your fabrics and prints. Shop for lightweight clothing during the warmer seasons and embrace soft, flowing looks with your makeup and hair. You have a kind and caring nature and everything about your image should reflect your sweet and gentle nature.
If you are an Ingénue, or know of one, who is struggling with confidence, consider what image-coach Catrina Welch talks about in this video about the Beauty Battle.

Catrina Welch is an image- and life-coach whose message is not as much “what not to wear” as it is, “Know Who You Are,” which is the title of her book of guidelines for your personal image identity. Catrina has also written a Bible study to help women overcome their confidence conflicts; it is titled Supreme MakeOver: a Rich and Refreshing Devotional Experience and is designed to help you bring her main message (found in: Confident Beauty: Reflecting the One Who Made You with the Images in Your Mirror and Your Soul) to heart.
