When it comes to your personal style, it’s easy to start to fall into a rut. After all, we’re creatures of habit and tend to do the same things over and over again. However, just because you’ve fallen into a fashion rut doesn’t mean that you can’t break out of your habits and spruce up your look. Follow these smart tips to give your personal style a fun new edge.
Try Different Clothing Stores
When it comes to clothes, a lot of us find our favorite stores and end up shopping at them almost exclusively. If you buy your clothes at the same old department store at the mall time and time again, then it’s no wonder that you’ve fallen into a style rut. Consider trying out a store that you’ve never stepped foot in before, such as that quirky vintage store or trendy clothing boutique.
Change Your Hair
Your hairstyle is one of the first things that catches people’s eyes when they look at you. If you’ve been wearing the same old boring hairstyle for years, then it might be time to change things up. This doesn’t mean that you have to chop it all off, however. If you want to keep your length, then consider trying highlights or a new color. If you want to keep your color and your length, then give bangs a try.
Have Fun With Your Makeup
If you wear the same makeup look each day, then it’s time to step out of your beauty comfort zone. Something as simple as a red lipstick can inject new life into your makeup look. If you’re too demure to play with bold colors, then try a subtle highlighter on your cheekbones or experiment with false eyelashes. Remember, makeup isn’t permanent. If you don’t like your new look, you can always just wash it off.
Life’s too short to stay in the same style rut. Making these fun changes to your look won’t just improve your appearance. Indeed, it will boost your overall feeling of confidence and make you feel like a whole new person. If you want to feel new and improved and put some pep in your step, then give these style changes a try.
If you have dark circles under your eyes.
Use Tea Bags. Put one tea bag each of your eyes. The tea bags should be chilled and drained and you should place the tea bag over your eyes for 5 minutes. This will tighten the blood vessels. It would help you to lessen the dark circles under your eyes.
Unlike with puffy eyes, the concealer should be applied before the foundation if you have dark circles. Remember you are correcting the color, so the rule is concealer goes first before the foundation.
Color correct. For darker skin tone, red lipstick is the answer. If you have a triangle shape, pat your products on in thin layers so to cover the dark circles.
With Puffy Eyes
You should keep things cool!
You can press a spoon against the puffs of your eyes; spoons tend to have a cold metal to minimize the swelling. If you don’t have chance on pressing spoon in the puffs of your eyes, you can put slices of cucumber on your eyes while you drop off to sleep.
Put foundation before concealer.
Just add light to the shadows, no need to fix much discoloration.
Put a shade using concealer but put it lighter than your foundation
To get rid of the puffiness, bring up the sunken shadowy area. You can choose to use a highlighter as long as it is not the shimmer kind.
Bake it on
Balance the light and dark, if you were able to achieve it. Do not let it melt off. Apply a translucent powder and let it for few minutes. Once the concealer is set, you can use a fluffy face brush to dust off the excess powder.
I worked night shift, so most of the time I don’t get enough sleep. And it sad to say, it shows in my eyes. I wanted to hide it but I don’t know how, good thing that recently I oftentimes bought a fashion magazine, which one article provided tips on how to hide that you didn’t get sleep last night. There were two kinds of these that shows up you didn’t get sleep last night. These are puffy eye bag and dark circles.
Puffy eye bags are that shows up a crescent moon shape and it would swell below your eyes. A sunken outer rim would show up too, it would look shadowy since there it doesn’t hit by a light.
Unlike Puffy eye bag, dark circles are shadowy rims and it would appear below your eyes. Since the color is dark it will appear slightly sunk.
