Some Ideas for Ladies Looking for a 2014 Makeover

I will admit that I am the most restless person when it comes to my beauty routines. That is why I basically own what amounts to an entire Sephora (which confuses people because I don’t wear a lot of makeup)–every once in awhile, I feel that itch to overhaul and nothing is out of bounds (makeup, hair, clothes, shoes…). Here are some ideas for the ladies out there like me that want a change, from little to big.

Zosia Mamet’s new haircut is gosh-darn adorable, and I am not just saying that because my hair is currently pretty similar. It is one of those styles that looks good sleek, slightly messed up, or curly. Really can’t ask more for a haircut, can you? Plus, nothing says “a fresh start” like a chop–there’s a reason Sabrina Fairchild returned to Long Island with a new hairdo!

Not feeling shorter hair? How about some bangs? Mini bangs are having a moment. They may be trickier to pull off, but the impeccable Lizzy Caplan proves they can be oh-so-chic (have you seen her on Masters of Sex? Lady is talented–and hotter than hot). Style them retro, style them funky–the option is yours. I would definitely take the plunge if my bangs weren’t already crazy cowlick-y. Goodness knows what short bangs would do to them.


For those who are quite pleased with their hair and want it to stay that way, how about mixing up some of your makeup? It lets you experiment without the commitment (kind of like college, in many ways! Haha). For lips, try berry instead of red lipstick or gloss. Equally sophisticated, but much more unexpected. My picks are cult favorite Clinque Almost Lipstick in Black Honey for a subdued pout and YSL Rouge Pur Couture Glossy Stain in Rouge Philtre if you want more of a pop of color.

Purple eyeshadow and liner is surprisingly versatile. Try substituting your black and brown pencils with plums, lavender, or lilac. It looks striking against green eyes, but any eye color can pull it off. Go darker for a night out on the town and lighter for a classic-with-a-twist work look. I think you will be amazed how much you like it. Check out Olivia Wilde rocking the look below. Convinced yet?
