This year, it is all about focusing on your own self. It’s the year we all concentrate on becoming better people with confidence that could kill and overall better wellbeing.
So, let’s bid a farewell to toxic people, outdated dresses, split ends, and change for the better this year using the following tips and tricks:
1. Change your hair color
It’s time to get that dramatic color change you dreamt of as a little girl. Go for those purples, blues, pinks or even the Kylie Jenner platinum blondes. It all might seem too much to take at first, which is why, you can try the all new hair products which require little to no commitment as the pigment fades off in just few days.
2.Get those scissors out!
Let’s make it the year we splurge on experiences as opposed to materialistic things! Get ready for some good DIYs which can change your look for the better. For this DIY project you would just need a pair of scissors and your wardrobe staples.
Let’s start with those pair of jeans which are well loved but you just can’t let go of. Cut the hems of that bad boy to transform it from run-of-the-mill to right on trend! For better tutorials, hit Youtube.

3.Accentuate that smile
Nobody ever looks bad when they smile, it’s just science but you can definitely make it look a little better. To beautify your smile, you don’t have to spend thousands on a dentist appointment; instead, you can just hit the closest Walmart or even Amazon for a bottle of charcoal powder.
Brighten your smile with a little charcoal powder. It’s easy, fast, and cheap, yet the results are incredible. It can also be a treat for your taste buds as the powder comes in four flavors which include peppermint, spearmint, and orange. And hey! They’re not just cruelty free but are also, organic.

4.Channel your inner nerd
It is the year we accept (with pride) as to who we are. Time to say goodbye to those contacts which get dry way too often and switch to those cute glasses we were destined to wear and read in! The frames of your glasses can really switch up your look, all for the better.
Switch up your glasses frames to a more modern style for a way to look trendy every darn day before you even put clothes on.
5.Experiment with makeup
Makeup makes a serious dent in our banks, every other month and we’re not disappointed. It helps us look even better than we already do. 2018 was full of “no makeup” makeups with loads of inner glow and rosy cheeks. Let’s switch up our looks by deviating from the conventional and just go with our looks.

A true makeup lover has a staple eye liner they swear by for a particular eye look. To spice things up and change your look, you can begin with experimenting with different eye liner styles so that there’s never a day you look the same — even when using the same products Monday through Friday (and of course, the same face). There are various styles you can try ranging from the basic to a double up to slept-in smudge to the ultimate dramatic cat eyeliner.
In addition to that, if you’re a beginner and struggle with contouring, it’s the right year to perfect that voodoo craft. The best way to go about it is by literally mapping out your face. Ignore all the charts that come up with 1,000 different areas and stick to three easy-to-remember regions. The regions include the “three motion: forehead, cheekbones and jawline” for bronzing followed by the blush on the apples of the cheeks and finally, highlighter on the high points of your face. Learning this will change how you wear makeup forever!
6.Switch up the hair
As indecisive as we are, cutting the hair is too much to take and growing it out takes too long. Don’t worry, we found the middle ground. It’s time you change your look by rocking a bit of long as well as short hair!
If you succumbed into the “lob” trend and got those locks cut, worry no more, it’s time for some extensions. It’s time to grow your hair overnight (or at least that’s how it’ll seem) with synthetic clip-on extensions. Synthetic clip-ons are not just cheaper than your natural hair but also give you the most natural look ever. Also, they are super voluminous and soft, so what are you waiting for?
Well, if you were on the other end of the spectrum and want to go short but are too scared, try the faux bob trick. It’s a perfect way to spice things up for say, a date night or well, just a month or two for a change in your overall look.

It’s a new year and a new start. Start it with making changes that are fulfilling and make you happy. Make this year the year which not just made you look the best (like never before) but also a year you chase all your dreams down and live your very best life!
