Look Glam in 5 Minutes

There have been times, when I just give zero *expletive* about how I look. It can be because I'm having a bad day. Well, it's really when I'm having a bad day. 

Those days don't happen very often, but when they do, yikes. And I know you've had bad days too. You may be having a bad day today. Well, I'm here to tell you that you can get out of that rut by doing one of the three things I'm about to suggest. Sometimes it just take something as simple as a red lip... which leads me to,

1. Swipe on some red lipstick. There's something about red lipstick that just makes life a little bit better. Runny eyes? Red Lipstick. 10 projects but only have time for 2? Red Lipstick. Sweatpants and a t-shirt kind of day? Red Lipstick. Red lipstick just brightens your face, your teeth (smile ladies) and your outlook. Even if it's just for a few minutes.

A few of my favorite reds:

M.A.C. in Ruby Woo

Nars Velvet Matte Lip Pencil in Dragon Girl 

YSL Rouge Pur Couture SPF 15 in 1 Le Rouge

These were certainly Happy Days.

2. Wear your favorite jeans. We all have a pair of jeans that just makes everything look tight and right. For me, it's a pair of skinny boyfriend jeans. Pair with some white crisp sneakers, your red lip and basic v-neck tee and you're good to go. Here are some of my favorite boyfriend jeans. 

Old Navy The Boyfriend Button-Fly Jeans

HM Boyfriend Low Jeans

3. Accessorize. Have a favorite pair of shoes? Rock them with a simple outfit. Have a necklace that you just can't seem to stop wearing. By all means, wear it. Sometimes all it takes to make the same outfit look different, is simply by adding accessories. The reality is we wear 20% of our wardrobe, 80% of the time. So it's bound to happen that you're going to wear the same thing more than once, in one week. So what?!
