Sometimes, in makeup, we find out that we are in stuck in a rut! From the usual foundation to the normal lip gloss, makeup application gets boring, especially if you are the type to wear the same look everyday!!
Makeup doesn’t have to be about just about covering up your blemishes, or preventing dry lips, it is also a way of expressing yourself and having FUN while at it!!
Sooooooo LET’S SPICE THINGS UP!
4 EASY-ON-THE-POCKET WAYS YOU CAN CHANGE YOUR MAKEUP LOOK
#1 EYES THAT SPEAK
Coloured eye pencils come in different textures, creamy, glittery, metallic and what have you!! The options are endless!!
They can be used as liner on the upper lid, lower lash line, or even on the entire eyelid.
Use a different colour on your eye! A bright colour on your eyelid and another bright colour on your lower lash line!
Metallic colours like Gold, Silver, and Copper could be used on the inner corner of eye to instantly brighten your eye!
You don’t have the extra cash or time to get the coloured eye pencils, nothing spoil!! Whip out your colourful lip pencils, they’ll get the job done while you wait to get other fab metallic colours!
#2 BLING YOUR CHEEKS
Add warmth and sparkle to your cheeks (move over you plain and sparkle-less blushers!!) Shimmery blushes are one of the ways to quickly amp your look!! With a light hand, it is easily wearable during the day!!
Nigerian Brand, Zaron does amazing shimmer blushers! Milani, Mary Kay, Bobbi Brown Sleek (oh sleek!!) shimmer blushes are highly recommended!! Get on it!
A little shimmer on the highest point of cheekbone near eyes lends you an instant sexy look.
Bring on the glam!! Spice your look with false eyelashes!! Transform instantly from a plain Jane to a Sexy Siren!!

The styles….endless!! Ardell, Red Cherry, Crème are some of the brands that have a cult following in the makeup world!!
