There’s Something Different About You . . . 5 Easy Ways to Change Your Look

There’s Something Different About You. . .5 Easy Ways to Change Your Look

Looking for a fresh start for spring? Changing up your appearance doesn’t have to mean a total overhaul or a big commitment. Try out these five easy tips to give your look a whole new vibe in just minutes.

Try on a New Brow Shape

Eyebrows make a surprisingly huge impact on the overall face. If you’ve ever seen one of those popular memes of celebrities Photoshopped without eyebrows, you know just how important they are! Here are a few quick grooming tricks that don’t require waxing or plucking:

• Bringing them inward by filling in the start of your brow and then some can help minimize a large nose.

• Sharpening the arch helps create a sophisticated, vivacious look--it instantly adds a little spark of energy.

• Filling in naturally thin, sparse or over-plucked brows frames the face and adds oomph. As long as you’re choosing the right shade, it’ll bring all your features forward!

• Brows that have little to no arch look fresh and youthful.

Once you’ve chosen a look, it’s time to select the best products. You’ll definitely need a spoolie brush, then a pencil, gel or powder to fill them in and a wax or gel to hold them in place. The jane iredale GreatShape Eyebrow Kit is a handy little set that includes a powder, wax and mini spoolie, all in one convenient compact. You can find more professional brow products here.

Part Your Hair Differently

This may just be the quickest change you can make. If you normally sport a part to the right side, try the left, or go for a super chic center part. You can also try out a part just to the right or left of center or anywhere in between.

If you’ve been parting your hair the same way for months or even years, your locks may be a bit stubborn at first. Make the change stick all day with a hairspray, like Catwalk Session Series Finishing Hairspray.

Find a Fresh Lip Color

One of our favorite small changes with big payoff! There are so many pretty colors out there, but it’s easy to get stuck in a rut. Pick up something you wouldn’t normally go for, whether it’s a pink instead of a red or a gloss instead of a matte formula.

Peaches and corals are gorgeous for spring. A few of our go-tos are theBalm Meet Matte Hughes Liquid Lipstick in Honest, jane iredale PureGloss in Bellini, glo minerals Suede Matte Crayon in Crush and jane iredale Just Kissed Lip and Cheek Stain in Forever Peach.

Add a Surprising Shade to Your Eye Mix

Blue eye makeup is a major trend for spring 2016. But if you’re not ready to go there (or go back there), try a different take on color. If you’re like us, you probably stick to black or dark brown eyeliner and neutral eyeshadows for daytime. Instead of going for a complete makeover in the eye makeup department, trade your brown or black eyeliner for a color that’ll make your eyes pop. It’ll likely still match your usual eyeshadow, but it’ll still have a noticeable impact. Here are our picks:

Blue Eyes: A navy blue, like glo minerals Precise Micro Eyeliner in Navy

Green Eyes: An eggplant purple, like Youngblood Incredible Wear Gel Liner in Black Orchid

Brown Eyes: A deep gray, like Youngblood Intense Eye Color Pencil in Slate

Hazel Eyes: An olive green, like stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in Moray

Brighten Up

You might be used to feeling tired, but that doesn’t mean you have to get used to looking tired. You have a favorite face mask, so now it’s time to find a favorite eye mask. Eye masks contain ingredients like caffeine, antioxidants and hyaluronic acid to help firm, smooth and reduce the appearance of puffiness and dark circles. They’re also incredibly refreshing, and they can help you feel more energized and awake the moment you apply them.

Try Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber De-Tox De-Puffing Eye-Cubes, a brand new product that’s different from most. These aloe-, green tea- and caffeine-infused cubes are frozen for three hours and then placed over the eyes for an instant tightening and de-puffing effect and a brighter look.
