Brighten Your Makeup, Brighten Your Mood

Have you ever felt like you’re in a frumpy mood?  You know, just kind of blah?  Well, I was recently feeling that way.  I wasn’t really sure why; things were going good, and I didn’t necessarily have anything to be in a bad mood about.  But, I was, and I wanted to brighten my mood.

I had an appointment that afternoon, and though I didn’t feel like doing my makeup, I decided to go for it.  There’s just something about putting on a little bit of makeup that can help me (and maybe you too) feel more confident; a little extra pep in your step.

So, I wanted to share some easy, fun techniques you can use when applying your makeup to make it bright and cheery, and in return, help you feel the same way!

    • This can be anything bold and bright
    • Orange, hot pink, fuscia, and coral are a few of my favorites
  • Add some sparkle

      • Eyelids
      • Lips
      • Cheekbones
      • Collarbone
