Most people are feeling hopeful that 2021 will be a better year after a rough 2020. Now is the time to start thinking about improving different aspects of your life to have a successful year. Wearing makeup is a fun way to improve your mood and make you feel more confident. Here are some tips to help you step up your makeup game to look beautiful and feel motivated this year.
Play up your eyes
Your eyes are arguably the most noticeable facial feature because eyes are the first thing people see when they look at you. Since the eyes are such an important feature, you should focus on making them pop this year. Whether you want to use eyeliner, false lashes, mascara, eyeshadow, or more than one of these eye makeup options, people will be likely to notice when your eyes look more pronounced. If you are new to wearing eye makeup, you can never go wrong with some mascara for an effortlessly feminine look.
Invest in wider varieties of colors and shades
When you have many colors and shades of makeup, you will have more variety each day, and you will not get bored with your options. Have colored mascara options for a bold, fashion-forward look. While black mascara is a classic look, more choices will make your eyes look incredible. For example, blue mascara will nicely complement blue eyes, green mascara will match with green eyes, and brown mascara will pair beautifully with brown eyes. Try exploring other colors such as purple and red for bold, fun eye makeup looks. Different colors and shades of eye shadow will also help all eye colors pop.
Take care of your eyebrows
Your eyebrows are a crucial element to making your eyes pop. Some people prefer thin eyebrows while others like fuller brows. Regarding fullness, you should only keep your eyebrows as thick or thin as you want them to be and are comfortable with, but be sure to take care of them no matter what. It helps to consistently pluck stray, unwanted hairs once every few weeks to keep the shape you desire. Avoid over-tweezing, and if you are not comfortable with plucking your brows, there are many places where you can get them threaded or waxed. You may also want to use fillers to define your brows and gel to keep them in place.
Have a high-quality lip balm
Chapped lips never feel or look great. Invest in high-quality lip balms to moisturize your lips so that they will look smooth and feel soft. Also, avoid biting on your lips because this will make chapped lips look and feel worse and prevent your lip balm from doing its job.
Always take your makeup off before going to sleep
We all have those nights where we are so tired that we want to pass out in bed without taking our makeup off. However, sleeping with makeup on will damage your skin, so even when you are exhausted, do your best to take your makeup off. If you don’t make it to your sink and sponge, try keeping makeup wipes next to your bed so that you can easily reach over and grab a wipe to take off your makeup when you are tired.
Be sure to follow these suggestions to look great, feel confident, and improve your makeup game in 2021.
