5 Inexpensive Ways to Reinvent Your Style in Minutes:
Reinvent Your Look With a Change of Shoes
When I need to dress my outfit up a bit, I like to throw on some platform sandals, heels, or chunky heels. It’s amazing how you can take a simple outfit and dress it up just by changing your shoes. My current favorites are my leopard print heels. They make an outfit look chic, with a bit of an edge. Shoes can definitely take your look from drab to fab in seconds. And no matter what size, shape, or height, shoes always fit just right. If that’s not a confidence booster, I don’t know what is.
Shoes can definitely be expensive! I love to look for shoes out of season, when they are marked down on sale. Marshall’s and TJ Maxx have definitely been two of my favorites places to find great shoes. I have also found some amazing, unique, and extremely high quality shoes while thrifting at places like Goodwill or shopping at garage sales.

Reinvent Your Look With Inexpensive Glasses
That’s when I decided to order a variety of different looks from Glasses USA and Zenni Optical. Both of these websites were suggested by some good friends of mine. Glasses from these companies were simple to order and literally a fraction of the price of what I had previously paid. Plus they had tons of styles to choose from. Though I have a few pairs that are my solid everyday favorites, I do enjoy switching to some of the funkier pairs sometimes. It’s fun and I’ve gotten so many compliments on them!
Another Way to Reinvent Your Style in Minutes? Jewelry!
Some of my favorite places to get jewelry inexpensively are Walmart, TJ Maxx and Marshall’s. My current favorite gold plated earrings and necklaces are from these stores. They run great sales as well! Starla loves to get her costume jewelry rings from Ebay. Some of the pieces she has found are just stunning, and she doesn’t pay more than $5 for most of them.
Quick and Easy Ways to Switch Up Your Hair
And finally, clippies! I feel like I’m in junior high again with the low clippies girls are wearing again now! I’m not complaining though! This is a cute and fun way to get your hair out of your face. For low maintenance days, a clippy is the best!
Reinvent Your Style in Minutes with Makeup
I am not snobbish about the kind of makeup I use. It would probably be healthier to stick to high end and natural makeups, but I can’t always justify the prices. Some of my favorite products are just normal, inexpensive, drug store brands like Maybelline, Wet N Wild, or Covergirl.

Keeping it Simple
Now that I work from home, if I wear makeup at all, I keep it to a minimum. My typical daily routine consists of some good lotion, a bit of primer, some concealer around my mouth and under eyes, a quick stroke of bronzer and blush, a bit of highlighter on my upper cheeks and a bit of mascara. Okay that sounds like a lot, but it’s like half of what I normally do as a “full face” of makeup! It’s just a very light, dewey, simple look.
Going All Out
This simple face of makeup can easily be transformed into something a little more special. When I have plans to get out of the house, I like to put on some “Believe” foundation which I found at Dollar General. It is full coverage and I think it looks so nice! It’s also made in Germany, where most toxic ingredients are banned. To my dark spots around my mouth and eyes, I do add a little extra concealer as well. This light colored concealer is also great to do just a bit of contouring!
Around my mouth, jawline, the rim of my nose, and eyes, I apply a white press powder to make sure the foundation and concealer is sealed into place. From there I apply bronzer to my lower cheek bone, and a bit around my temples, and hairline. I add just a touch of blush to the apple of my cheek, and then apply highlighter to my upper cheek, the rim of my nose, and on the upper edge of my lips. I like to layer a bit of eyeshadow on, with a lighter champaigny color to the lid, and something a bit darker to the crease. After that I like a bit of eyeliner, and maybe a quick little set of wings. When I’ve thrown on some mascara, I just fill in my brows a little, and put on some lipgloss and I’m good to go!
