    Take it one step at a time. Take a good look at yourself in the mirror and decide on your favorite features that you would like to play up. You can't play up all areas of your face because this could look a little bit scary! Pick one or maybe two areas that you want to focus on to perk up your face.

    You could focus on the skin. If you've chosen the skin to add some touches to, then you have a lot of things to choose from! When it comes to foundation and concealer, it's best to keep that the same. However, you can go pretty wild with bronzer and blusher. You can experiment with cream blushers, shimmering bronzers and sparkling highlighters. Pick a color that you wouldn't normally go for. If you usually opt for the average-looking pink blush, then why don't you switch it up a bit? Pick a blush with a purple undertone with a slight shimmer in it. This will definitely liven up your skin.

    You could focus on the eyes. The eyes you can have loads of fun with. If you're bored of the same-old-same-old neutral shades of eye shadow, then mix it up a little. There's so many colors to choose from and so many textures to play around with. Glitter is always fun to have a go with too! And no, you don't have to look like a 5 year old who has just raided her mum's make-up bag. A slight slick of glitter as your eyeliner will create a pretty and interesting look that will make people instantly drawn to your eyes. If you're really brave you could even switch up the color of your mascara. There are lots of colors to pick from when it comes to mascara, not just black and brown. You could coat your lashes with neon blue, sea green or a deep purple. Whatever you feel great in!
