Why You Shouldn’t Be Scared To Experiment With Makeup

Time to get out of your comfort zone!



We’re all creatures of habit, makeup routines included. But sometimes, wearing the same look over and over again can get tiring. Here are five reasons why you should try a new makeup technique!

1. To discover something new
It may be a new holographic shade that’s out of this world or a new foundation application technique that you never thought you would ever do. This can open you up to a lot of new possibilities (i.e. makeup looks) in the beauty world.

2. To have fun
Makeup is supposed to be fun! Think of it as an art class, but for kikay adults. Enjoy the time you spend perfecting your eyeliner or perfectly filling-in your brows.

3. To get your creative juices flowing
Why not try trends like neon eyeliner or kohl-rimmed eyes? You never know, you might like it more than your regular look!

4. To make you feel more empowered
Sometimes, all it takes to feel like you are the best version of yourself is a little change. So don’t be afraid to take your lipstick from nude to fuchsia, or your eyeliner from black to blue—we all know how powerful makeup can be.

5. To raise awareness on issues you’re passionate about
It can be about an illness like vitiligo or saving animals from extinction. The point is, in any form you want, makeup can help shed light on these issues: Through lippie colors or actual drawings on your eyes—it’s all up to you.
