Once you establish a makeup routine that works well for you, over time it can start to feel a bit boring. Here are some simple ways you can refresh your makeup routine so you can enjoy putting on your makeup again.
Refreshing your routine doesn't mean you have to go out and buy new products if you don't want to. There are also lots of other ways to do so with your existing makeup collection.
Switch your eyeshadow palette
Most of us have more than one eyeshadow palette and if you're anything like me you probably go in phases of using the one palette for months on end.
So a super-easy way to refresh your makeup is to switch to a different eyeshadow palette.
Personally, I love switching mine up each season so for Spring/Summer I go for my pink and nude palettes and Autumn/Winter is all about the warm tones.
Add or subtract a step
If your normal makeup look is more on the full glam end of the scale then why not shake things up and remove one of the steps from your routine.
This could be anything you want, you could stop contouring your face, wearing eyeliner or eyeshadow; the choice is up to you. You might just be shocked at how much you prefer your makeup without that extra step.
If you're on the more natural end of the scale then you could try the opposite and add something to your routine.
Again, this could be anything you like. It's a great way to step outside of your comfort zone and discover new makeup looks.
Try a different technique
There are so many different ways to apply makeup nowadays and this makes it so easy for us to get stuck using the same tried and tested techniques.
Another easy and free way to refresh your makeup routine is to try out different techniques.
If you always use a beauty blender to apply your foundation why not try using a brush for a change.
Similarly, if you always apply your blush on the apples of your cheeks try brushing it up towards your ears.
