The bold move
Coco Chanel once said that a woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life, but the truth is, you don’t have to turn your life upside down in order to treat yourself to a new hairstyle. There is something about stepping out of your comfort zone when you cut your hair. It’s a bold and risky move, but once you leave that salon, you somehow feel like a brand-new person, a model strutting down a runway. Now, if you don’t want to risk it too much, in the sense that you don’t want this to turn into a disaster, try to find a haircut that is recommended for your face shape, and you’re golden. Of course, you don’t have to stop there – you can even be as wild as to try a different hair colour. In the worst possible scenario, you can always change it back if you hate it, but remember, change is good, and perhaps you’ll be dazzled by your new colour.
Re-examine and reshape
One of the features that can make or break a face are, without a doubt, brows. Granted, in the age of the brow, we have seen some overworked ones to last us a lifetime, hence, this isn’t the road we’re telling you to take. Visit your beauty salon or find one with a great reputation in the field and reshape your eyebrows so they perfectly frame and compliment your face. You could do this alone, if you’re the dexterous kind and know what shape suits you best, but why risk it when there are so many amazing professionals who can give you the Cadillac of brows?
The lack of a picture-perfect smile is cause for insecurity for many people in the world, and if you’re not really keen on your smile and would truly like to change it, stop mulling it over and just take the plunge already. Australian people are known for their gorgeous white smiles, and here in the Land Down Under, we weren’t all born with it and no, it’s not Maybelline either. When there’s something left to be desired, we turn to our professionals in Melbourne for porcelain veneers and get the smile we want. And not just in Melbourne, but all over the country, a perfect smile is a must. So, invest in your choppers once, and get the smile you deserve once and for all.
Sick of that same old love
Ok, this is a Selena Gomez song, but it’s suitable for the occasion. There are certain women who own every eyeshadow palette in the world and love experimenting with different techniques and create outrageous looks. However, they’re a minority. The rest of us are too busy or lack the skills to create the looks we secretly watch on YouTube, so we take the easy route and stick to the same old routine that we know is easy to do and kind of works for us. Well, your job is to either start experimenting or visit your nearest Sephora and ask one of their makeup artists to create one glam and one everyday look for you and walk you through it. You never know which products you’ll end up falling in love with, and don’t shy away from taking them all home – you deserve this. Threat yourself. Take a chance on a new lip colour, try a liner, a different colour palette when it comes to eye shadows – live it up. After all, it all comes off at the end of the day, so why not create a new you every single day?
Last but definitely not leastIf you’re not really happy with what your current skincare products are doing for you, do some research and find the ones that will get you that naturally radiant flawless complexion you need. While you’re getting your makeup done at Sephora, use this time to ask about the skincare lines that would be amazing for your skin type or issues, and load up that bag with goodies that will bring that plumpness and glow to your skin. While we’re at skincare, and reinvention in general – do a little extra something and get a facial. You can get a nice peel and mask or get a microdermabrasion treatment – whatever the professional advises, say yes to it. This is your time to shine, so take it and don’t let go until you’re feeling like a brand-new woman.
