Fun Ways to Shake Up Your Look

No matter how great your look is or how much you love it, sometimes it is nice to change things up a bit and try something totally different. If you want to shake up your look right now, here are some of the best ways to do just that:

Experiment with colored eyeliner

Most of us, if we wear it at all, opt for black eyeliner most of the time. It is a classic look that just about anyone can pull off, and it’s great at making the eyes seem wider, so it makes sense to wear black in everyday life. If, however, you want to shake up your look why not opt for colored liner instead?

Your choice of eyeliner can change the effect your makeup has completely. For example, a gray liner can create a softer overall look while white can make your eyes appear bigger in a subtler way than classic black. Experiment and see what works for you.

Color your hair

Another way you can use color to really change your look is by dying your hair a different shade. Whether you go from brown to blonde or from black to bright pink, anything you do to modify the color of your hair will help you to create a completely new look, and once you have the new hair color in place, the rest will naturally follow.

Put your hair up or down

A really simple way to change your look in an instant is to put it up or take it down depending on how you usually have it. If you always have your hair tied back in a sleek ponytail, then letting it flow freely will give you a more edgy free-spirited vibe, whereas if you usually have it down tying it up in a cute bun or French plait can instantly make you appear more sophisticated.

Try a piercing

Piercings aren’t for everyone, but there is no denying they can be a great way to shake up your style and create an edgier look, Whether you go for a cute rose gold nose ring or a cool black lip piercing, one thing’s for sure, you will be noticed!

Alter your clothes

If you want to shake up your new look in such a way that you are not dressed like everyone else you see, the best way to do this is undoubtedly by altering your clothing so that your wardrobe is completely unique. Even if you only have basic sewing skills, you can change the length of dresses, add embellishments or zips, add or remove collars and that’s just for starters. So even if you buy your clothing from the same stores as everyone else, you can curate your own unique wardrobe in an instant and you can keep modifying your clothing whenever the mood takes you so that you will always be no more than a needle and thread away from a whole new image.

Choose a different frame for your glasses

If you wear glasses, the shape of your frames can make a real difference to how you look. For example, thick frames can stand out and make a powerful statement, making you look more serious, whereas thin or invisible frames will blend it, let your face be the main focal point, and feminize your look somewhat. Again, it’s a good idea to experiment and see what works for you.

Go thrifting

A great way to shake up your look is to forget about the fashion stores in the mall for a while and git the thrift stores and vintage shops instead. By doing this, you can find fashion -pieces that you would not see elsewhere and widen the scope of your wardrobe. You can choose to create new looks wholly from vintage pieces, but if you want to have a unique look that is all your own, it can be better to mix modern and vintage in a way that is all your own.

Change your parting

You would be surprised at how different you can look by switching from a die-parting to a center one or from a straight parting to a zig-zag. Give it a try and you will see just how instantaneous of a transformation it can be.

As you can see, there are lots of things you can do both big and small, to shake up your look and try a new style on for size, so what are you waiting for? Get out there and make a change!
