Most of us always go without make-up, which is not a bad thing, but if you need a quick makeover going bolder with make-up will do the trick. For most part, mascara and lip gloss will instantly give you a transformed look. For an evening or more formal affair, use bolder blushes and graphic eye liner.

Sweep up your hair or let it down

For greasy hair, use baby powder to instantly de-grease your hair. If you regularly wear your hair up let I down and if you always let it down try to sweep it up for a change.

These are just small things that you can do to get a quick and cost effective makeover. All these steps should not take you more than 10 minutes and you can make them part of your daily routine. Take your makeover a step further by gradually upgrading your wardrobe and adding updated accessories to your closet.
