NEW YORK (WLNY) – Who can’t use a beauty boost this time of year?
The harsh weather is not a girl’s best friend.
The Couch brought in O Magazine’s beauty director, Val Monroe, to give us some advice to fresh your face and feel gorgeous.
Vibrant Lip Color: This is the easiest way to transform your appearance. You can ease into a bold look with a sheer formula or jump right into a more pigmented and powerful shade.
Part Switch: Your hair falls flat along your most natural part line – flipping it to the other side adds instant fullness. Also deepening a side part helps elongate a round face and softens a strong jawline.
Nude Eyeliner: Traced along the inner rims of your lower lashlines, it creates a gorgeous optical illusion – bigger, brighter eyes.
Spritz on Your Favorite Fragrance: A scent you love boosts your spirits on first sniff and the sense of smell links directly to the mood-ruling limbic system.
Sheer Cream Blush: A wash of rosy color makes cheekbones more pronounced and eyes more sparkling.
