Beauty Tip | Are you in a makeup rut?

Are you a slave to your Liquid Liner? 


Can’t see anything on your lips but frosted or beige lips? 

Never wore blush?

Everyone has their go-to look that they have hung onto, regardless whether it was 10 years ago or longer.  It may be something we dabbled into when we first discovered our love for makeup, perhaps a signature colour of lipstick, a particular product or a certain way of wearing eye makeup etc.

I thought it would be fun to share some makeup idea swaps that may help to move some of you into a new direction of wearing a particular look or product, check it out below:
