Ultimate Beauty Day 4: Try Something New Today

10DaysBanner Goal: Expand your makeup-applying knowledge and talent.

The 10 Days to Ultimate Beauty is almost halfway over. How have the assignments been going? Today’s an easy one.

Trying Something New, Makeup-Wise

It’s always good to try new things. If you get caught in a rut, with anything, life certainly gets boring.

The same is true with makeup. Sure, I may look nice with some smoky brown eye shadow, but if I wear that every day, the hotness quotient diminishes.

To avoid getting stuck in a beauty rut, I change the way I apply my makeup. I may wear a fiery shadow look one day and a soft and subtle look the next day. There are three main benefits to changing up the way you do your makeup:

  • You can match more outfits by using different color palettes and techniques.
  • You spice up your life and make it a lot less boring and cookie-cutter.
  • You can improve your makeup application techniques. Practice makes perfect!

Assignment Day 4: Try a new and different makeup look today. If you normally wear neutral eye shadow, go with something bright and colorful. If you normally wear light brown eyeliner, wear a thick black line. If you normally wear pink lip gloss, throw on some dark red lipstick. Essentially do the opposite of what you normally do. For inspiration and a few ideas on makeup looks, check out my makeup tutorials and Face of the Days.

Extra Credit: Don’t just try something new today! Make it a regular goal to change the way you apply your makeup. Wear different makeup styles based on your mood, what you’re wearing or the occasion. Mix it up!

  1. Thanks for the great tips. I wear the same makeup every day. Today I
    tried plum eyeshadow and a violet eyeliner with my regular gray liner.
    I like the change, it’s fun.

  2. I’m glad you tried something new! And I know for a fact that you have green eyes, so plums and violets are a great choice.

  3. This is a great tip! I get bored easily so I try new looks all the time. One day I wear something bright a colorful, the next a smokey eye and then a natural look with some color eyeliner. I like changing my makeup style all the time, it’s so much fun!
