If you look in the mirror, are you happy with what you see?
Most people will say that they are generally satisfied with their looks but there are usually a few nagging problems they’d like to fix. One problem many people have is that they are stuck in the past.
They get comfortable with a look and keep doing everything the same. The months turn into years and they don’t make any changes at all. Eventually, this leads to a dated look. Here are a few tips for updating your look.
One good way to get back into this decade is to take a look at magazines and the television. These are the trendsetters. You don’t need to be as extreme as they are but take note of the overall predominant looks. The most important thing is to adapt the looks to your particular features.
If all the models are wearing brick red lipstick and you find that looks too harsh with your cool undertones look for a blue-based bright red lipstick instead. You have to make the current trends work for you.
Outdated hair is a sure way to announce to the world that you’re just not up on the latest trends. One area that is subject to a lot of fads is the bangs. One minute-long bang is in style and the next super short bangs are in. The problem is that once you cut your bangs so short, it can take a long time to grow them back.
Most people find that the best approach is to have no bangs at all. If you need some hair to frame your face, go for long layers instead. Stripy highlights are out but natural and well-blended highlights are always in style.
Another part of the fact that a lot of people are unhappy with is the brows. Some people don’t even realize they have a problem with their brows but others will notice. Well-groomed brows make a huge difference in your appearance. The biggest brow offense out there is over-plucking. If you have to draw in your eyebrows with a pencil, you better start looking into eyebrow growth serums right away.
The thin, drawn-in brow look is very dated yet many women are still parading around with this type of brows. Vitamins for hair loss can help boost brow growth and bring you out of the past and back into the present in a fairly short amount of time. Once your brows grow in, go to a salon for professional waxing. Even if it’s not in your budget, go just once so they can find the best shape for your brows and then take care of plucking the strays as they grow in yourself to save money.
