Bored With Your Look? Here's How To Switch It Up!8:48:00 AM
In a rut with your style? Maybe you feel like you’re too busy to make as much effort as you once did, or perhaps you dress for comfort on more days than you’d like. But looking good doesn’t have to be time-consuming or complicated. Feeling good about how you look will give you confidence, and allow you to live to your fullest potential. If it’s been a while since you switched it up and you’re bored of your style, here are a few things you could try.
Experiment with a New Hairstyle and Colour
How long have you had your current hairstyle? Changing up the colour and length can make a huge difference and give you no end of confidence. If you spend time browsing cute hairstyles and haircuts, it will give you an idea about the types of things that will work for you. If you take your skin’s natural undertones into consideration, you will get the most flattering overall finish. For example, ‘cool’ toned skin will work best with ashy toned hair, whereas ‘warm’ skin tones will suit more golden tones. Alternatively, you could do something entirely different and opt for a vibrant colour or pastel shade!
Teach Yourself How To Do Makeup
When you know how to do makeup, you have access to your own makeup artist every morning- yourself! Certain makeup techniques can make a dramatic difference to your look, and boost your confidence enormously. For example, contouring can make your face look structured and slimmer- or even make your nose look smaller. Smokey eye looks can make your eyes look sultry and more defined. And overlining your lips can make them look fuller. While we should always try to embrace our natural beauty and love ourselves regardless, realistically we all have things about ourselves we don’t like. If a bit of cleverly placed makeup can help to give our confidence a boost, then that can only be a good thing!
Try a New Clothing Style
The key to changing your style is to find outfits that are both comfortable and flattering. You want pieces in your wardrobe that you are excited to wear, and that make you feel good. There’s no point going out and investing in a whole new fashion style if wearing it makes you feel self-conscious. You don’t have to be ruled by trends if you don’t want to be, instead, choose classic pieces that take your body shape into consideration. Then you can bring in trends and interest to your outfits with accessories. For example, tartan is a significant trend in the autumn and winter. If you didn’t feel confident rocking a full dress in the design, you could opt for a scarf instead. There are plenty of ways you can make a style fit you, rather than the other way around.
