We’re all busy, so looking great for the daily grind can be challenging. The good news is that if you’re in the mood to freshen up your look, it’s easy to make a big difference with minimal effort. Here are four easy ways to look pulled together and stylish for the girl who just doesn’t have a minute to spare.
Make an Appointment for Gel Nails
Manicures can be expensive and time-consuming to keep up, especially when you have to go every week to keep your polish looking fresh. If you opt for gel nails, though, the upkeep is minimal, since this revolutionary formula lasts for up to two weeks without chips (longer if you choose a light color). This is a low-maintenance way to keep your fingers and toes looking great. You can either go to a nail salon to get these done, or you can order a Gel-Nails kit online and do it yourself.
Choose a Bold Print
When you want to look your best, pass up the passably boring neutrals and opt for a simple silhouette in an unexpected print or a bright, bold jewel tone. It’s as easy as choosing black, but brightens your face and adds a colorful pop to your style (and mood)! If you’re not used to wearing bright colors, keep accessories minimal to balance. Or, keep the black dress and add a floral scarf or a bright bag and shoes for a quick and cheap upgrade.
Try a New Lip Color
If you’re a clear gloss kind of girl, step up your game by adding low-commitment color in the form of an easy to apply matte crayon or long-wear gloss. If your daily look already includes a signature shade, switch it out for something brighter or deeper to make an exciting change in your normal appearance. Want to get adventurous? Swap black mascara for deep purple or blue for your next special occasion.
Update Your Accessories
Invest in a few trendy, inexpensive pieces each season to make any outfit look more polished, even a basic T-shirt and jeans. Great choices include statement necklaces, ear cuffs, vintage cocktail rings, or a fun watch. Add just one or two accessories to any outfit for effortlessly head-turning style.
Sprucing up your look can boost your confidence and mood. Regardless of your typical aesthetic, wearing clothes that make you feel great allows your beauty to shine through. If you’ve been feeling like you’re in a rut, try one (or more!) of these four tips to get in a new groove.
