There’s something about the turn of a calendar year that makes everyone crave dramatic change, especially when it comes to physical appearance (you know, the whole “New Year, New Look” thing). But you don’t have to lose 20 pounds, dye your hair red or max out your credit card at the mall to reinvent your image—smaller changes can add up to a big impact.

 

Red lipstick

Don’t be scared off by its boldness. The truth is, red is one of the most universally wearable lipstick shades, and it’s a classic way to add both impact and femininity to your look.

Modernize your manicure

Your nails may seem like minor details, but they say a lot about you. For example, squared/ squoval-shaped tips painted with pale-pink polish are pretty, but a little predictable. Try this of-the-moment twist instead, and watch your nails suddenly spark attention: Instead of squaring off the tips, file them round across and then round off the corners, creating what manicurists call a “rounded/stiletto” shape.

 

Play up your eyes in a whole new way

Deep-blue eye pencil is a great new alternative to basic brown and black – it’s just as subtle and versatile, but the blue undertones brighten the whites of your eyes, making you seem instantly less tired and more alert. This shade still has the depth of colour you need to play up the shape of the eye but gives you a modern, sophisticated look. Stick to navy or deep indigo hues, and smudge it subtly right into your lash line.

Out with a bang

There’s no question a great set of bangs can drastically transform your look. But don’t get stuck in a bang rut!  Switch up your look by pinning bangs back to open up your face or casually swipe to the side to create a softer look.

Vamp up your volume

Take hair from flat to fabulous by giving your roots a little boost before you style. We recommend teasing hair around the crown before styling to give your look a total transformation!

Start whitening

Want to immediately look younger, healthier, and prettier? Sure, a new hairstyle and great makeup can help, but it won’t make as big of a difference as whitening your teeth. There’s a reason teeth whitening is an important part of any makeover, it makes a big difference in your overall appearance.
