It's easy to get stuck in a beauty rut. We're all busy, we find what works and stick with it for years, oftentimes decades! But just because it's familiar, doesn't mean it's the best way. In all aspects of life, it's a good idea to shake things up once in a while and see if there's a new way to do things. Here are 5 ways to mix up your makeup routine. Try them out and don't forget to post a pic and tag us on social media!
Try a Bold Lip!
Neutral nudes are great for everyday, but nothing shakes things up like a bold colored lip! Try a bright pink or red, like our Lip Colours in Rouge or our our ColourFusion Lip Glazes in Soiree or Candied Apple, or try a vampy dark shade, like our Lip Colours in Merlot or our Lip Glaze in Candied Plum.
If wearing bold shades is intimidating to you, try a Lip Glaze, you can blot them to be more sheer, or build them up for more intense color.
There are countless influencers on YouTube and Instagram doing tutorials on interesting looks you've probably never considered. Or turn to high fashion, what's happening on the runways? It may not be wearable for everyday, but you can use it as inspiration.
Discover Your Best Shades
Getting your 'colors done' was a big trend decades ago, and it's back! On social sites like TikTok and Instagram, people are discovering if they're a 'deep winter' or 'soft summer'. While it may seem dated, it's incredible what a difference colors make, from the clothes we wear and the makeup we choose.
People will often wear the same shades and not realize they're not the most complementing. We offer samples of almost all our products. Next time you order, why not push yourself to try some shades you wouldn't normally consider?
Cream or Powder
If you've always worn powdered blush, bronzer and highlighter, why not switch it up and try cream? And vice versa? If you have very oily skin, you may want to avoid cream makeup, but otherwise it's great for everyone, during all seasons.
Challenge your Unconscious Beliefs
People have all these rules for themselves, which were either told to them or they made up themselves. 'I'm too old to wear highlighter', 'red lipstick would draw too much attention', 'I'm not cool enough to try the latest trends'. Our response to this? Baloney! There's no reason why you can't play with colors and express yourself. Don't let someone else's rules keep you from being your most fabulous self!
There you have it, 5 ways to mix up your beauty routine so you can feel fresh and confident. Play, have fun and express yourself. Don't be scared to try something new, it's just makeup, it washes off!
