Having a signature look - whether it be smoky eyes, a red lip or false lashes - is a must. However, if you've grown bored of the basics and are interested in changing up your appearance, there is no better time to start than now. While it might take some getting used to, certain beauty products may actually work to enhance your natural beauty and help you feel amazing.
Here are a few makeup products to consider picking up.
Perhaps one of the best ways to transform your look is by adding a vibrant color to your lips. According to the pros at Women's Health, the best way to rock a fresh lipstick is to apply a lip stain first, then add a layer of creamy gloss or a lipstick in a matching shade to help the color last on your lips longer.
Worried about what bright color to choose? Don't. The Huffington Post reports there are suitable options for all skin tones. Ladies with fair complexions should opt for either a bright hot pink shade or a color in the coral-peach family to complement your lighter tones. These options will help warm up pale skin.
On the same note, women with medium or light brown skin should stick to coral and orange hues to enhance their natural color. Lastly, ladies with darker complexions should look for bold orange colors with red undertones to help contrast darker complexions.
No matter the color you select, it's best to start off any lipstick application with a moisturizing lip balm. Bliss products like Bliss Fabulips Softening Lip Balm is a must-have prior to donning bold colors to avoid chapping and flaking.
Standard black or even dark brown eyeliner is one product most makeup-savvy women keep in their cosmetic bag. However, switching out darker hues for fun, bright liners can really make a statement.
According to Women's Health, eyeliner is one item that can take a look from standard to stand-out in a flash. For a really surprising style, consider wearing neutral eye makeup - such as shimmering gold eyeshadow and mascara - paired with fresh teal or purple eyeliner on your bottom lids. The pop of color will ensure you garner plenty of positive attention.
