Sometimes I feel like switichin up my look. Beyonce has Sasha Fierce. Nicki Minaj has Roman Zolanski so it makes sense that we take on an alternate personality too. I’ve always considered myself someone that doesn’t really fit into a specific type of style. I like to wear what I want when I want and not be confined. One day you might get glam Amanda, another day you may get boyfriend Amanda, sometimes wanna be gangsta Amanda comes out (emphasis on the wannabe cause anyone that knows me knows I have a little swag.)
Here are some of my secrets on how I switch up my look from time to time.
- Change up your hair: I have never dyed my hair and I think that’s most people’s go to when they want to switch up their look is to go for the dye. Well, I’m here to tell you that there are some other ways to change things without using chemicals. One of my favorite ways is to add some extensions to my hair. Check out my review on the current hair that I wear. Secondly, I like to change up my part. If you usually wear a middle part, try a side part and vice versa. You’ll be surprised at how many people ask you if you did something different to your hair. Lastly, try a different style. If you always wear your hair straight try some loose curls or if you have naturally curly hair (don’t worry I’m not going to say straighten, not trying to get cussed out over the computer), but I will say try and change your curl pattern by adding to your natural curls. Use a wand to possibly straighten out really tight coils and add some looser waves or wash, comb, and braid your hair up to change to some sexy beach waves.
- My all time favorite way to switch up my look is to use some personality glasses. You can find some really affordable glasses at Forever 21 or Target that look like prescription but aren’t. They immediately add some dimension to your look and there is a ton of options you can choose from. I use them all time.
- Do NOT underestimate the power of a great lip. If you love lipstick but don’t know how; I have a few tips outlined in my how to line your lips post. Some of my favorite lipsticks right now are NYX shocking pink matte lipstick, NYX lip creams (check out my previous review), and MAC Velvet Teddy as an everyday nude. Lipstick is something that will immediately draw attention to your face and depending on the color you wear it can either be a statement piece or understated elegance.
Hopefully, some of these things help re-inspire a boring wardrobe or unblock some thoughts on how to freshen up your look. I would love to hear about any additional things you guys do to change things up from time to time. Comment below with some tips!
