No matter how much we love ourselves, as we should, wanting to change is in our core. We’re always striving for better, whether we want to acquire more knowledge, be kinder, more loving or simply wanting to change our looks from time to time. Change can be good, as long as it’s done in moderation and in keeping with good taste. There are times when there isn’t anything we’re particularly unsatisfied with, appearance-wise, we just simply have a need to mix things up and make small alterations, sometimes for the fun of it, other times to spark a new beginning. You would be surprised with how minor modifications can impact you on the inside, and with the arrival of yet another year, perhaps now is the best time to take the plunge.
Coco Chanel once said that a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life, so if this is something you crave, all the more reason to pay a visit to your stylist. However, even if you’re incredibly happy with how things are going and aren’t looking to turn your world upside down, there is nothing wrong with a bit of refreshing makeover. A brand new cut and color can make you feel like a whole new person. It’s simply incredible how different hairdos frame our face and rejuvenate our looks. We know that there is a style you’ve been dying to try, a color you would like to experiment with but never dared. Just dive in and do it already – what’s the worst thing that can happen? You don’t like it – it will grow back. It’s simple as that.
Better shape up
One of the beauty crazes that has been going strong for a couple of years now is the eyebrow trend. Everyone seems to be seeking the perfect, thick brow, and there’s a good reason for it. Eyebrows can definitely make or break a face, and when they’re shaped just right, they can elevate your look by almost a hundred percent. Of course, we’re not advising you to jump on board the ‘overdone brows’ trend, but a visit to your beautician who is an expert in brow shaping can mean the world of change. Trust us, once you go perfect brow, you never go back.
Color with every crayon in the box
We tend to love our eyes, and that’s good, because we have to live with them for the rest of our lives. Kidding aside, no matter how beautiful your eyes are, sometimes you just want something whimsical and playful, you want to take a different crayon with which to paint your face. This is where color contacts come in. These are amazing, and beauty influencers, as well as celebrities, have gone nuts over this trend, so why not try it for a change? Wouldn’t it be fun to have blue eyes for a night? Green in the morning? Embrace the whimsy, and if you’re not exactly sure where to look, there are tons of great optical shops that sell them.
Speaking of color
While there are women out there who own every eyeshadow palette in the world and love experimenting with different techniques and gracing their eyes, lips and cheeks with a plethora of shades and hues, most of us are too busy for that kind of play. So, we usually find the colors that are easy to work with and create a singular signature look we stick with. While you don’t have to spend a million on makeup or try to recreate every tutorial out there, a fresh approach to makeup might just be what you need to get out of your beauty rut and bring a new perspective to your face. Be a little more daring, try to master the winged eyeliner, give turquoise blue eyeshadow a chance. Go buy that red lipstick and wear it on a daily basis. Makeup is more powerful than people give it credit, and it will give you not only a quick revamp but an instant boost of confidence too.
Yes, you can definitely be a daredevil without leaving your comfort zone or committing to something permanent. Most people shy away from tattoos simply because they’re afraid they’ll have a change of heart, or hate the result and have to live with it or spend tons of money to get it removed. Now, thanks to the magic of temporary tattoos, you can actually have your cake and eat it too. Decorate the part of your body with gorgeous ‘ink’ in the shape you’ve always secretly wanted but never dared. It goes away in a couple of weeks, and if you like it you always have the option of doing it again.
These tricks are as simple as promised, and they only go to show that you don’t have to spend a million to look like a million. You just have to use a bit of imagination and go for tiny changes that make a world of difference. Enjoy your new you.
