Best Tips On How to Give Yourself a Makeover
Giving ourselves a makeover is like an instant boost for our sexiness, and who can say they have never fallen into a beauty rut?
We all go through times when we just aren’t feeling anything, and everything seems like a significant task. If this is you, girl, join the club because I go through this often.
I know now not to panic when I get in these ruts because as easy as falling into a rut, it’s easier to get out of that rut and back to your sexy self.
Here are some quick, easy steps to give yourself a makeover that won’t break the bank or stress you out
Pamper that Skin Queen
As we go through life, our skin becomes dull, making our faces look slightly older than we are! Pamper your skin asap if you’re looking to change your appearance.
Girl, you need to start prioritizing “you” time, like yesterday. I like to use my FOREO UFO to help relax the skin and bring my skin youthfulness back.
I’ve RAVED about it in many of my posts because it’s THAT GOOD! I’ve linked more about it here.
But I don’t stop there. I’ve begun getting into microcurrent treatments (at home, of course), and the results are spirit-boosting. You’ll want to dive deeper into those treatments here.
Update Your Hair Style and Color
Have you ever noticed that you want to change your hair after you go through something? Rather it is dying, cutting, or getting a new style, it will lift your spirits. It’s a sheer transformation and can give you the sense of a new beginning.
Not into dyeing or cutting?
I know we can’t run out and get our hair done, look into hair extensions, or if you want to go wild, you can get a wig. Wigs are not what they used to be I own a few myself, and I love wearing them. Here’s a post about my experience with wigs and how to pick them!
Get Your Nails and Toes Done
This always helps me feel more feminine, and it’s a sense of empowerment. There’s nothing like the feeling after having your nails done.
Try picking a color you haven’t worn or have been dying to try but haven’t.
Not a fan of going to salons, or just don’t feel it?
Head over to your nearest Walgreens and get some press-on nails.
I have a secret to share!
I rarely get my nails done in a salon! I go for the press on nails from Walgreens. You would not believe how many compliments I get when I get my press-ons. People can’t tell the difference, and it’s a fraction of the cost.
Don’t knock it until you try it, they come in so many cute designs and sizes you won’t be disappointed.
Get Your Eyelashes Done
Eyelashes bring out your natural beauty with minimal effort. When we fall into a rut, we lose sight of how beautiful we indeed are.
when looking into the mirror, the eyes are the first thing we look at brightening up the eye is key to getting back on track!
Not interested in getting your eyelashes done
Try a new pair of false lashes. My favorite go-to lashes are the whispies from Ardell. They’re flirty and add length.
Whiten Your Teeth
Whitening our smiles make a massive impact on our daily looks. The great thing about whitening our teeth is we can also do it at home.
Whitening strips can boost your whitening goal, but you’ll want to take steps to whiten your teeth daily to get the best results.
- Sonicare toothbrush
- Whitening toothpaste
- Whitening devices
Get A Red Lipstick
Red lips are an easy way to get that boss babe vibe and can brighten anyone’s look. Red lipstick is bold and empowering and can make your teeth appear whiter!
I’m a believer when it comes to better skin and better makeup. Dermaplaning is a quick, non-invasive way to get smooth skin.
Dermaplaning is a great way to eliminate dead skin and peach fuzz on our faces.
The dermaflash is my personal favorite. It’s convenient, gets the job done, and it doesnt hurt. You can see it here!
New to Dermaplaning? Check out this post I go into detail on how to do this at home.
Try Colored Contacts
We’re not all born with the colored eyes we dream of having. With colored contacts more accessible, changing your eye color can be a fun boost.
Exfoliate Your Entire Body
Aka, body scrub! Exfoliating your body is such a soothing experience, but it also leaves behind soft sexy skin. After I give my body a good scrub down, my husband goes crazy!
Pick Up a New Perfume
Picking up a new scent is my go-to when I fall into a rut. Our sense of smell is surprisingly robust and can change how you feel in seconds.
The summer months are great for picking up a new floral scent! My favorite go-to is Chanel Chance (the pink one) that scent is a game-changer for me.
Start Taking Supplements If You Haven’t Already Started
Taking supplements is not an overnight fix to wake up to perfect skin or hair. Taking supplements in a long-term relationship, you’re taking on with yourself.
Giving yourself a makeover from the inside out will be one of the best things you can do for yourself!
Mess with your Eyebrow Shape
My eyebrows have been through a journey, it’s comical! When I look at pictures, I can’t help but wonder what I was thinking. Let me tell you, when you find an eyebrow shape you can’t stop looking at, you’ve found your winner.
In this post, you can find tips about what products to use when doing your eyebrows.
Switch up your Style
You know that feeling when you get something new and can’t put it down? The same goes for clothes if you’re in a rut changing up your style of clothes can change how you feel about your outer appearance. It could be as simple as picking a different color you usually don’t wear to start the process.
I know going out and shopping at expensive stores is not something we all can do. A quick fix is TJ Max and Marshalls. This is my favorite spot to rebuild my wardrobe for a fraction of the price. The trick is to pick something you usually don’t reach for. You don’t want to repurchase the clothes you already have, so make it fun.
Change Your Outlook
This is a powerful way to give yourself a makeover; the best part is it’s free. When we fall into a rut, the way we see the world can be hostile.
Changing your outlook on things pulling you down will give you the power to see a solution to whatever it is you’re going through.
By changing your outlook, your entire look will be lifted more positively, and you’ll be unstoppable.
