5 essential elements of the makeover for a new you

Are you bored with your current look? Everyone needs a makeover from time to time, so why not change things up to suit your new personal aesthetic?

Makeovers don’t have to be extreme and you don’t have to keep up with current trends. It’s about becoming the “you” you want to be.

Not sure how to get started? Okay, there are so many makeover essentials and options that it’s easy to get overwhelmed. We are here to help you.

Read on for our list of complete makeover essentials.

1. First: A spa day at home

Anytime you plan on giving yourself a total makeover, even if it’s just for a single outing, you deserve to pamper yourself first. Not only is it a luxurious and relaxing experience, but it is also a great opportunity to make your skin and hair shine before you start changing your appearance.

You could go to a real spa, but who has the money or the time? Instead, do it DIY-style.

Make a hot bath and fill it with bubbles or a nice bath bomb to make your skin feel soft and smell good. Light a candle to create “atmosphere” and enjoy the true spa experience.

For the beauty element, get yourself a good face mask and a hair mask. There are many Safe DIY face masks that you can make with ingredients that you may already have at home.

Finish your spa day with a thick body lotion. You are now fresh, clean, and ready to begin the rest of the makeover process.

2. Stylish new hair

How do you feel about your hair? A complete makeover means you’re making big changes, so unless you like your current hairstyle, it’s time to change it up!

There are several ways to do it and some are more extreme than others. Choose what is right for you and don’t be afraid to start with less permanent measures.

First, why not try a wig or some removable hair extensions? Wigs are popular right now, and for good reason. They’re great for trying out new styles and colors without making big compromises right away.

Ready to take a bigger leap? Look online for hairstyles that go well with your face shape and hair texture. When you find your favorites, take them to your local stylist (or, if you’re daring, grab a pair of scissors) and transform your hair.

Are you ready to even plus? Why not take this opportunity to make a big change in your hair color? Whether you’re going from light to dark, dark to light, or a fun non-traditional color, this is the perfect time to live out your hair color dreams.

3. New nails

Many people underestimate the power of a good manicure. If you’re really trying to do a complete makeover, why not try some new nails to see the size.

As with your hair, there are several options that vary in terms of its extreme appearance. Choose what is right for you based on your comfort level. Nails are easy to change in the future.

If you are interested in a subtle change, go for nail polish or gel polish. Learn some nail art tricks on your own or indulge in a professional manicure!

For longer, more professional-looking nails, go for acrylic or polygel nails. You can do this at home, but if you are a beginner, it is best to let a professional take care of it (at least the first time).

Not ready for a long-term change? No problem. There are many options when it comes to false nails that are affordable and easy to remove when you are ready to change them again.

Snap nails are perfect for people who are new to long nails or are not sure what length and shape will work for them.

4. Fashion: your way

Does your wardrobe need a serious upgrade? If you’re doing a full Cinderella transformation, it’s time to trade in your rags for a party dress (so to speak).

What clothes make you feel more comfortable? Remember, you don’t have to keep up with current trends if you don’t think they’re “right.” Consider trying something that isn’t hitting the fast-fashion shelves this season if those clothes don’t appeal to you.

For any fashionista on a budget, the thrift store is the place to be. Scan the shelves for vintage finds and whip up some outfits for just a few dollars. Don’t forget to personalize it!

Speaking of accessories, don’t miss the jewelry. Why not take this opportunity to get a new piercing or two and adorn them with high-quality jewelry?

5. Makeup that is truly “you”

The last step in your makeover routine will be finding your ideal makeup look.

While you might be overwhelmed by glamorous looks online, there are plenty of makeup options for every style, from overdone to understated.

Grab a nice eyeshadow palette, some flutter darling eyelashes, some nice lip gloss colors or even some glitter. The sky is the limit.

Don’t like a full coverage style? Don’t feel pressured to apply a foundation coat or concealer if it isn’t right for you. Makeup is a form of expression, not a mask. It should represent your personal aesthetic!

Start shopping for your makeover essentials

These makeover essentials will take your look from drab to fabulous. Remember, a makeover should not be to impress other people. Ditch the “geek to chic” mentality of teen rom-coms and give yourself a makeover that represents you and your personal style.

Grab some makeup brushes, change your hair, find some fancy new strands, and pamper yourself to start the process. You deserve to love your new look!
