Visit a beauty store
Going to a cosmetics beauty shop will help you have more ideas as you may get someone to talk to. The assistant at the store is likely to suggest new shades of lipstick or eye shadow and even allow you to sample it before you can purchase it. You can also leave the store with new tips on how to do some new stuff.
Have a variety of looks
As you explore a new look, what you need to achieve is at least getting two to three different looks. It’s best if you have a look for the office, night out and relaxed weekends. There is no need to panic now. Different looks do not necessarily mean purchasing more products. You can use the products you already own and combine them differently or in different quantities to achieve different looks. For instance, to achieve a daytime look you can apply one layer of liquid eye-liner and for an evening look you apply thick layer of the same eye-liner.
Practice skin care
In order to have your makeup looking good your skin needs to look great. Make sure you take good care of your skin, apply the right foundation in order to help achieve a good texture and tone.
The most constant thing in any look and makeup mix is having good complexion. However it’s also possible to try and change your face foundation and try out new shades of foundation, blush and primers.
Focus on the lips and eyes
Put more focus on your lips and eyes as they are the two parts that have the most effect on your overall look. It is also easy to try new colours on them and explore more.
The easiest way to have a variety of colours to explore is by having a palette. A pallet gives you a variety of colours in small quantities but in one purchase. That way you will have colours to play around with and if you end up finding one that you fancy then you can get its full size.
