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.
