Sometimes you just need a change. If you aren’t finding your life satisfying and want a re-do à la Queer Eye or you’re just champing at the bit for a change, a makeover doesn’t have to be an expensive affair or take up a lot of your time. By purchasing some awe-inspiring items and making a few small changes, you can completely rejuvenate your look.
Wear clothes that fit.
You can tell a lot about a person by their clothes. One of those tell-tale signals? Whether or not they actually know their proper size. Wearing the right size isn’t as simple as grabbing the same number off the rack each time, especially for women, where size disparities between brands and styles are extensive. But it can make a world of a difference. Update your wardrobe with pieces that actually fit or visit a tailor to have your existing closet cut to your exact specifications.
If you’re determined to fit into that goal dress in the back of your closet, don’t just sit back and dream of the day you lose those last ten pounds: take action and get losing. A combination of regular workouts and an effective diet plan can help boost your weight loss efforts along with other benefits, like lower risk of heart disease and adding more nutrients to your daily diet. On a deadline, like an upcoming wedding or other events? Try a new dieting program like the apple diet (a low-calorie diet that can help you lose three to ten pounds in one week) for maximum results in as little time as possible.
Small pieces can make a big difference.
If you aren’t looking to invest in a whole new closest, picking up a few items that are especially impactful can make a big difference. From statement jewelry to a luxury purse, adding even one or two pieces that make you feel like a million bucks can completely change an outfit. This is the perfect chance to express yourself through unique style choices while keeping your overall look fashion-forward.
Not sure of where to start? Highlighting your favorite feature can elevate your appearance and make you feel more confident, too. For example, if you know your eyes are your best quality, a pair of faux mink lashes can frame them beautifully. Whether you’re a complete beginner or have been applying false lashes for years, you can find the perfect pair for your skill level and style. Since Glamentic lashes are magnetic, they’re also super easy to apply. No more glue, and no more tugging in your eyelids! And, because faux mink is vegan-friendly, you can know that no cuddly creatures were harmed in the name of your fashion.
Change up your ‘do.
Clothes and accessories on-point already? Not only can a new hairdo be quick, easy, and budget-friendly but it can completely change (and upgrade) your look. The options are endless: switch up your cut, color, or style for a nearly instant confidence boost.
On one end of the spectrum, this can be as simple as changing the side of your part. For something with a little more commitment, try a new color—thanks to semi-permanent options, you can try it out before making a long-term change. Want to go all-in? Get a whole new cut and style: chop off six inches or get those bangs you keep eyeing on Pinterest.
With so many options, it’s easier than ever to give yourself a makeover, no matter your budget or risk aversion. Go for a drastic change like a pixie cut or weight loss for a dramatic effect that’ll boost your self-confidence. Or, simply update your closet with your current size and add some high-quality false lashes. Either way, put on a smile and strut yourself: you look great!
