Even if you’re no longer in school, September always brings with it a sense of renewal. Just like when the new year changes in January, September is the perfect time to set some short-term goals and consider trying out something new for yourself.
One thing that many people try during this time is revamping their look. To help you make the right choices when it comes to updating your look or trying something completely different, here are three tips for creating a new look that will be perfect for a new school year.
Create Healthier Hair
Getting your haircut or taking on a bold dye job can make you look different, but really focusing on improving the health of your hair is one thing that will help make your overall look more polished. Petra Guglielmetti, a contributor to WomensDay.com, suggests getting a glaze either at a salon or done by yourself at home to add smoothness and shine to your hair. This is something that will last a lot longer than the sprays or serums you may be used to using. Also, you could try adding some volume and length to your hair through skin weft extensions if your hair is damaged and won’t seem to grow to the length you want.
Play With Eye Color
For some people, finding a new technique that will enhance your eyes may be nice for special occasions, but not every day is the right occasion to sport a new smokey eye or cat-eye liner. So if you want to create a new look for your eyes that will work with day or night, Huffington Post Canada shares that you can get contacts that will appear to change the color of your eye. If you purchase multiple pairs of these, you can essentially use your eye color as a further way to accessorize your look and change the color to correspond with what you’re wearing on any given day.
Vary Your Makeup Routine
If you’ve been doing the same makeup routine for years, it may be time for you to throw some variation in there. Holly Corbett, a contributor to RedBookMag.com, suggests creating a few different makeup routines that you can use depending on the occasion or the amount of time you have to get ready for the day.
By having a routine you’re comfortable using when you have two minutes, five minutes, or fifteen minutes to spend on your makeup, you will naturally have some variation in your looks. Corbett recommends looking for makeup products that have dual purposes so you can spend less time on your makeup when your schedule is rushed while still feeling like you’re prepared to take on the challenges of your day.
Changes in your life always seem to inspire changes in your look or styling. If you feel the need to try something new for this coming school year or for the new season, use the tips mentioned above to help you find what will work for you.
