Now and again, we all get a little tired of wearing our hair the same way, wearing the same few outfits in a continuous cycle, and sticking to the same lipstick week in and out. Fashion and beauty are both supposed to be fun, so you need to keep it fun; don’t get lazy and still make do with the looks that you’ve been recycling for the last few years. Be a little adventurous and step out of your comfort zone. Here’s some advice on nailing your new look if you don’t know where to begin.
Fashion is a topic of discussion that’s both exciting and exhausting. You love keeping up to date with the new looks and trends but you find it stressful and infuriating when you realize that you have to update your wardrobe every few weeks. However, it doesn’t have to be that way; updating your wardrobe is only something you have to do on occasion. When you’re looking for new outfits and accessories, search for things that are timeless; go for jackets, skirts, blouses, and other single items that can be mixed and matched to create different outfits.
The point is that you can find creative ways to turn a dozen different items of clothing into a hundred different outfits. Buying new clothes or accessories doesn’t have to be something to feel guilty about either; there’s a lot of resistance against high street brands at the moment but there are ways to shop for clothes which help the economy in a positive sense. You could check out thebatikboutique.com if you want to start looking for fashionable accessories from sources that are reducing poverty rather than exacerbating it. Buying fashion and beauty products doesn’t have to be a bad thing if you just do your research.
Fighting your hair is often a losing battle. You see some great look in a magazine or a beauty vlog but you fail miserably to recreate it. Your hair is too short or it’s too straight for the curly look you’re trying to achieve. Of course, there are always hacks that can get you around these shortcomings, as we’ve discussed before. A lack of hair can be solved with hair extensions (as long as you buy high-quality ones which aren’t overly-noticeable). Dry and frizzy hair can be improved by drinking more water or changing the type of shampoo you use (if you think you’re already well-hydrated and your hair still isn’t playing ball). Don’t over-wash your hair either; it needs those natural oils.
Making a change to your face can also be a bold new way to update your look. Keep well-hydrated to reduce skin blemishes but don’t be afraid to dabble in a little makeup to update your appearance (just don’t wear it too often if you want to keep acne at bay). As mentioned over at womansday.com, a simple change such as wearing a bold shade of lipstick can make a huge difference to your face. You don’t have to overdo it on makeup or wear any at all if you’re not comfortable in it, but the point is that a small accentuation of your favorite features can completely transform your look. You don’t always need to burn your wardrobe and buy a new one to make a big change to your appearance.
