To assume your life as a mum is busy can feel like a huge understatement. All you have to do is think back to when the last time was that you had a quiet few hours to yourself, no interruptions, nothing you “had” to do, just quiet peaceful time. The answer is probably before your kids were born! And with all the busy everyday life that mums are dealing with, often their own needs can get pushed to the side. Mums are notorious for making their own priorities last on the list.
With that said, it can be really easy to fall into a style and fashion rut. Having time to get ready and pamper yourself here and there just may not be the reality of your daily life. But here’s the thing, by putting the time and energy into how you look you’ll find it makes you feel good, it boosts your confidence, and it can even energize you and put that bounce in your step.
So, let’s take a look at four major makeover changes you can embrace that will help make you a priority and boost your confidence.
Refresh Your Hair Style and Colour
If you want maximum impact and you want quick results, refreshing your current hairstyle and colour is definitely the way to go. This doesn’t mean you have to choose some crazy wild colour, or stray many shades from your natural colour. Maybe you’re happy with some simple highlights or lowlights to add dimension and depth to your hair. It’s a good idea to consult with a professional colourist and get their advice on what would look best.
The same can be said for your hairstyle. Even something as simple as having bangs cut or layers that frame your face will completely transform your look. You can take inspiration photos to the stylist to give them an idea of what you want, or you can leave it up to them and have them figure out the best style for your hair type and face shape.
Straighten Your Teeth and Achieve that Perfect Smile
Lots of people don’t have perfect teeth and it’s not a big deal, but straight teeth are easier to keep clean and less likely to cause you problems in later life. Did you know that teeth braces now come in a variety of different types instead of just the traditional metal braces? You can still have these but now you can also choose from clear braces, ceramic braces, self-ligating braces, and lingual braces. It comes down to how you want the braces to look and the cost you are willing to pay.
So, how do braces work exactly? And more importantly, how much do they cost? You can find out more here at Straight My Teeth, which is all about helping people get straighter and whiter teeth.Its clear aligner treatment can be a great option for those who want to straighten their teeth in a discreet way. You will need to do an initial consultation, then have your dental impressions made, and then your personalized aligners will be sent out to you. Simply wear your teeth braces as directed and you’ll be on your way to straight teeth.
Change Up Your Makeup Application
It doesn’t matter if you apply a full face of makeup each and every day without fail, or you’re more of a lip balm and mascara type of gal, changing up your makeup application can also provide you with the results you’re after.
The fact is that makeup trends change over the years that are everything from the application to the colours, and even the type of products. What was fashionable five years ago isn’t the same today. Then there is the fact that your own style changes over the years, so it makes sense that your makeup keeps up.
Some of the simple changes you may want to incorporate include wearing a different type of foundation. For example, maybe you’ve been into a matte full coverage foundation. Why not soften the look and reach for something with a natural finish and less coverage? Maybe you want to shift focus from your lips to your eyes and learn some new eyeshadow application techniques. The list goes on and on.
If you’re looking for some ideas and inspiration, there are plenty of online tutorials you can follow and general information online about the latest makeup trends and tips.
Treat Yourself to Some New Clothing
Then there is the topic of clothing. While you may not be in the market for a completely new wardrobe, treating yourself to a couple of new pieces each month and gradually building from there can be a great idea. Here’s a category where you don’t want to worry too much about what is trending. Trends come and go. Instead, focus on what flatters you and what you feel confident and beautiful in.
A Whole New Confident You
By following these tips, you’ll find you emerge as a whole new more confident self.
