Let’s face it, with all of the running around we’re doing coupled with everything else that we have on our plates, sometimes it’s a miracle if we can just change out of our yoga pants and put on cute jeans and a top. You resort to the same hair and makeup routine day in and day out.
It can be so easy to slip into a routine that focuses very little on yourself. The thought of spending a little extra time on yourself seems impossible. But, what if I told you that there are simple ways to shake up your beauty routine?
5 Simple Ways to Shake Up Your Beauty Routine
1.) Use Different Shampoo and Conditioner
I’ve been told that it’s good for your hair if you change up your shampoo and conditioner instead of using the same kind over and over again. When I use a new shampoo and conditioner, I love the look, feel, and smell that my hair has. It’s a simple change that can cause quite a big difference.
2.) Change Up Your Lip Color
I’m all about the nude lip, especially since my eyes are my favorite feature so I like to play those up a bit. In fact, I sometimes just throw on chapstick and call it a day. But, then there are days when I add a tiny bit of color on my lips via a great gloss and love the change it gives to my whole look.
3.) Add Curls
If you have straight hair that has the ability to hold a curl, use a straightener to add a beachy, loose wave to your hair. Since I’m rocking the angled bob look that is on its way to growing out, I love to add a wave to my hair. Instead of straightening my hair, I curl it with my straightener. It takes about the same amount of time and makes such a difference in the look of my hair.
4.) Paint Your Nails
If you have a steady hand, pick up a new nail color while grocery shopping. After you put the kiddos to bed, brush on a fun, new color that is perfect for the season. A little bit of “me time” never hurt anyone. You deserve to pamper yourself, even if just for a few minutes while you paint your nails.
What’s a simple way to shake up your look? Throw on a scarf before you head out the door. Even if you’re wearing yoga pants and a t-shirt, throw on a jean jacket with a scarf and you’ll have a super cute, easy look. Here are 10 scarves that you will love this fall. You can also add a necklase, cuff, watch, hat, belt … the accessory possibilities are endless and can add so much to your look.
