Who isn’t a little tired of the “makeover” trope in every high school movie? We all know that just because you buried an actress under baggy clothes and thick glasses does not make her unattractive (looking at you, Rachel Leigh Cook).
But in real life, makeovers aren’t so superficial. They can be fun, they can improve your self-image of yourself, and so much more. But with so many different options to choose from, how can you get the look you want?
Well, you’ve come to the right place. We’re here to tell you all about how to give yourself a complete makeover! Got your montage music ready? Then let’s get into it.
It’s Getting DIY Up In Here
Before you run out to fork over hundreds of dollars for your makeover, think about what changes you can do yourself.
For example, if you’re trying to get clear skin, try to get into a face-care regimen and get plenty of sleep. You can even look for oil-free makeup that won’t clog your pores and cause acne. This is much cheaper than seeing a dermatologist, after all.
Basic tips to follow are washing your face twice daily and getting a gentle moisturizer for your skin. Make sure to stick to this regimen if you start though. It only takes one or two days of “Oh, I can just do this tomorrow” to reset your progress.
You can also try experimenting with the make-up you currently own. Try to copy styles you’ve seen on other people you like, or let your creative muse take over. If this strategy stalls a little for you, try sticking to staples like eyebrow curling and see what you think.
Get Outside Help for Your Complete Makeover
If you decide to enlist some professionals to give you your makeover, make sure you know exactly what you want before you leave. It seems obvious, but the more detail you give your stylists about what you want, the more they can help you. As skilled as they are, their judgment and what you want can often conflict if you leave it to them.
Also, consider making over parts of your appearance that tend to get glossed over when most people think of a makeover. Straightening your teeth can not only improve your smile but also your oral health down the line and you can talk to your Invisalign provider if you’re looking for a way to do it without the hassle of braces.
If you’re going for a haircut, don’t be afraid to get experimental too. A change in your hair color or length can do wonders! Look around sites like Pinterest or Instagram for ideas that excite you if you need some inspiration.
And That’s How We Do It
