There’s something about the new year that makes one want to try something fresh, isn’t it? But it doesn’t have to be extreme and neither does it have to be heavy on the wallet. Check out our list of ideas.
1) Get noticeable accessories
You don’t need to change all your accessories to make an impression; just concentrate on the ones which are the most noticeable. Get a new clutch if you’ve been carrying a tote bag through fall or retire your old watch and swap it with a pretty bracelet.
2) Experiment with nail and lip colours
The best part about these is that you can just wipe it off if your buddies burst into a fit of laughter. But don’t be shy to try new colours you haven’t tried before. You might just find a favourite shade in the process.
3) Get a new hairdo
We don’t mean something like chopping off your long locks to sport a pixie cut; you can definitely be more subtle about it. Try fringes or bangs, for example. And if you aren’t feeling too experimental with your hair, just part your hair differently and you’ll have a new look.
4) Reshape your eyebrows
Eyebrows really define your face. If you’ve always been a safe-player and followed the arches of your natural brows, ask a good stylist for suggestions on what is trending and opt for one that would compliment your features.
5) Go for lash extensions
Bat away to your heart’s content with full, luscious peepers. Lash extensions are huge right now and are getting simpler to opt for with every passing year. Go for a treatment you’re comfortable with, and we’re pretty certain you’ll love the results.
6) Try a new colour in contact lenses
A different eye colour can significantly change your appearance. You can keep it looking natural and close to your original tone or go for something that is absolutely fierce. You now have shades like red, purple and golden; just don’t opt for white — it’s not Halloween yet!
7) Try different makeup styles
If you’re someone who always steers towards dewy makeup, try your hand at bronzing. Makeup can do wonders, and it’s always fun to experiment with new looks. With millions of online tutorials on countless new looks, it’s really quite easy to learn a trending style.
