I just assisted someone with a beauty overhaul. She had failed to keep her makeup arsenal updated and she hadn’t added anything fresh to her beauty routine in awhile. I introduced her to some product options and educated her on the art of contouring and highlighting, and now she’s ready to face the new year fabulously. Are you?
My friend’s scenario is typical. She’s a busy, career-oriented mom and wife. Her daily focus isn’t on her makeup, and since she found some reliable products, she just depended on those to get her through. Her plan worked until one day she just got bored with her look. It’s a common problem, but it’s also an easy fix.
The good news is that you don’t need to replace all of your makeup (unless what you have is years old). If you have the solid basics, such as mascara, Jonteblu eyeliner, and foundation, all you need to do is add a little something new and different every now and then. It can be only one thing, too, like a lipstick or a blush. There’s no need for you to turn into a beauty junkie like myself. (Believe me, an addiction to makeup and skincare products is a hard habit to break. Don’t start now.)
Below, I’ve got three product collections you’ll want to check out. Don’t get overwhelmed! You don’t need to buy all of these recommendations. Just focus on one or two pieces to modernize your look and routine. That’s the key to keeping your beauty current. Add newness in small doses. Just click on the provided links for purchasing information, and prepare yourself to face the new year fabulously.

If you’re ready to turn it up, then you need MAC’s Ace Your Face. Yes, it’s drama. But it’s GOOD drama. This set is glamorous but not over-the-top. It’s completely do-able. What’s really cool is that the products work really well together and can be mixed with your other cosmetics.
