I don’t make a lot of New Year’s resolutions. Most of the time, I simply try to focus on making better choices that make me happier and healthier. I like to look at the as lifestyle changes so I see them as more permanent. This year, I’m trying to pay more attention to how I look on a daily basis.
Beauty Resolutions: How to Add Style to Your Look
One of my biggest goals for this year is to pay more attention to how I look and dress. You would think that having a beauty and fashion blog I would do that automatically, but I don’t always. This year, I plan on taking more notice of what I do each day. When I look better, I feel better about myself. That changes my entire outlook on my day.
You don’t need to go crazy and buy a brand new wardrobe although it’s a great idea if you can afford to do that. I’d love a whole new wardrobe. Learning how to add style to your look is a matter of making small changes each day.
- Wear make up. If you already wear make up each day, make it a little more polished. Focus on bringing out your eyes with a smokey eye or adding a pop of color with a bold lipstick.
- Remember your nails. Treat yourself to a manicure and try a new polish. Add some glitter polish instead of the traditional nude you always choose. It doesn’t have to be perfect. Just try.
- Add a scarf. A plain white shirt is blah. A plain white shirt with a pretty scarf is stylish.
- Don’t forget the jewelry. I often forget to add jewelry except my wedding rings. Try a statement necklace, chunky bracelet or some fun earrings.
- Update the bag. Have you been using the same handbag for months without changing it? Try alternating bags every week. Don’t always stick with traditional colors. Bright colors can be fun.
- Spritz on some perfume. Perfume makes me feel sexy and alive and that makes me feel good.
If you’re setting a beauty resolution this year, consider using a few of these tips. You don’t need to incorporate them all at once. Just pick one and work on it slowly until it becomes second nature. Once you feel comfortable with one change, pick another until you have updated your look.
