freshen up.

it's all white over here, and i'm slightly over it.
i love winter, but we have had more snow this winter in Memphis than before.
i'm all for snow days, but the spring lovin' girl in me is begging for some slightly warmer temps.

So, let's explore the idea of six hair and makeup steps to knock off the winter doldrums and 
update your look and mood instantly.

1. Knockout Nails or Lips

A pop of bright color on your nails or pout will bring instant cheer to a neutral outfit.

2.  Ballerina Buns

A sleek and smooth bun or twist at the crown can make you look put together in no time.

3. Luxurious Lashes

Use liquid eyeliner and a voluminous mascara (or go crazy and add some falsies) to make you feel like a star, even when trekking through this snow.

4.  Perfect Skin

Adding a primer can create a smooth, luminous layer between your skin and foundation.  Add a golden highlighter for a more radiance.

5.  Slicked Hair

Want a new way to wear your hair down?   
Start with a deep side part and slick your hair down and behind your ears.

6.  Amped-up Eyes

Don't be weary of using some color to get attention.  
Adding color to lids or lashes is a must.

Matters of Merrymaking suggests pulling one hair and one makeup tip and combine together!
Instantly add some color and style to avoid feeling dull and gray on these never-ending winter days!

Today's choice: Messy bun, bright red nails and big lashes.
