When it comes to your standard beauty routine, you might be happy with the way it is. But, how brave are you in general? If you’ve been sticking to the same techniques or the same style for years, maybe 2017 will be the year that you finally shake it up?
Even if you’re sticking to beauty routine for the busy woman that you are, you could even think about changing a few things for special occasions. It’s always nice to put a little more effort in every once in awhile. And if you’ve never known how these ideas will completely change that.
Your lashes have the power to say so much. You might be blessed with beautiful long lashes, but if you struggle to get a wow effect when you’re heading out, you might want to think about trying false lashes. They’re easy to apply and feel super light to wear, so you won’t even notice that they’re on – until you look in the mirror of course. They give a fantastic dramatic effect, making them perfect for a special occasion.
Some people are afraid of contouring, without having ever tried it. It sounds scary, challenging and really complicated, but in reality, it’s quite easy. Grab yourself an anastasia contouring kit and have a go. You can watch a range of tutorials if you’re not sure, but what you’re trying to do is accentuate your bone structure with bronzer and highlighter. It can completely transform your face and make you feel party-ready.
If you wear lipstick a lot, you will probably have your preference in finish. But, matte lipsticks can be fun to play around with. Not only do they look quite striking, but they can make your overall beauty look stand out. You might not want to wear them every day if you find them too drying on your lips, but they’re perfect for wearing when you want to look your best.
It’s highly likely that you either wear eyeshadow every day, or you’ve worn it at some point in your life. But, you might stick to one color, or even wear something very natural, so it’s not noticeable at all. If that’s the case, then make 2017 the year you experiment with how to apply eyeshadow like a pro. Wearing eyeshadow can make your entire makeup look completely different. Just watch a few videos to see how the colors are applied and blended, and then give it a go yourself. It could completely transform your makeup routine.
Although we’ve focused a lot of makeup, it’s important not to forget about your hair. You’re going to have a style that works for you, and that’s okay. But when was the last time you updated it? If you’ve worn the same style every day for a number of years, it might be time to modernize it. Why not book in for a consultation and get yourself a new cut or color for the new year? You might even decide to curl it or add volume, rather than just wearing it how it naturally dries.
