You don’t have to break the bank for a quick update to refresh your look. In fact, there are a number of small things you can do that add up to big change and will keep you looking polished and gorgeous.
It’s easy to fall into a rut with your hair. Maybe you found a cut and style that brings out the best in you and you’ve stuck to it¦.for the past five years. Throw a bit of caution to the wind and change it up a little. Try parting your hair on an angle for a side-swept look. Or down the middle for a more bohemian feel.
Or, if you normally wear your tresses pin-straight, how about taking a wide-barrelled curling iron to you locks and introduce some soft beach waves? Vice versa too. If you generally go curly, why not spend the time straightening your hair for a polished look.
Feeling extra daring? Consider darkening your colour if you’ve stayed a bit lighter for the summer.
You know the saying¦ the eyes are the windows to your soul, so put yours on full display and highlight with jewel-toned eye make-up that matches your natural eye colour. The trick to this is to find the right shade, then blend, blend, blend.
If you go dramatic with the eyes, perk up your cheeks with a pretty peach. This colour goes well on most skin tones and matches many make-up colour ranges.
A pretty gloss is always sexy and flattering and you can find many inexpensive brands at your local drug store. Dial it up at night with a pretty neutral that matches your natural lip colour.
We know, we know¦you never have a thing to wear. Chances are though, your closet is a goldmine. Invite a friend over who you think has a creative eye. And ask her to help put together outfits from the selection you already have. You will likely find pairings you hadn’t considered before. It’ll breath new life into your wardrobe.
