Five Ways to Update Your Look


September 7, 2011
If you're anything like me, every now and then you get stuck in a style rut.   I'll do the same thing with my hair and make-up day after day for months, and eventually I start thinking to myself 
"Oh dear, am I going to be like those people who are stuck in the 1980's, only I'll be stuck in the 2000's?"  
If that ever happens to me, please tell me. 

Luckily for us, you can update your style with a few simple adjustments.  Here are five ideas to help you on your way- 

1.  Switch up your liner
There are endless possibilities when it comes to eye liner.  Changing how you do your liner can change your whole look.

 Line only the bottom, shadow on top.
Line only the top.
Line with a dark shadow instead for a smokey eye look.
Try a cat eye.
Line only the water line, shadow on top and bottom.
No liner at all.

   
2.  Tone down your two-toned hair
Hair color right now is all about looking natural.  Highlights and lowlights are always a good choice, but having black hair with really blonde highlights is outdated. 

















 3.  Show off your natural texture.
Once again, natural is the way to go.  Whether your hair is straight, wavy, curly, thick or thin, instead of fighting it try just putting some product in it and letting it air dry.
  

 

4.  Try a lip color
I myself am guilty of never putting anything on my lips except chapstick.  If you're not ready for fire engine red or hot pink, wear a softer shade. Finishing off your make-up application with a lip color will really complete your look.

5.  Switch your part
And don't just switch it once, switch it all the time.  Whenever I get start to get bored with my hair, I change my part.  It's an easy way to get a new look.

Good luck, and have fun with your new look!
