Making Makeup Fun! The Revlon Expression Experiment.

This post brought to you by Revlon. All opinions are 100% mine.

I have always felt that people who use makeup just to cover "flaws" are missing out on so much fun. Changing up my makeup from day to day is a simple way to creatively express how I'm feeling that day. Last month I randomly decided to do oceany colors to compliment the Little Mermaid shirt I was wearing, and although they aren't colors I wear that often, I was surprised by how much better I felt dressing and doing my makeup in a way that brought me joy, rather than just focusing on the fashion/beauty aspect of it!

The Revlon Expression Experiment's page's tag line "Prove that beauty is anything but routine" instantly made me think of a quote that I copied from a book recently, "Routine is the most common obstacle to being conscious." I've been trying to be more conscious about how much of my life I just live on autopilot, following the same routines and doing things out of habit, rather than making each day an adventure. That's why seeing Revlon's FB app got me excited, even though I rarely use FB applications. I like that they are encouraging people to step out of their comfort zones, even if it is just with something as simple as trying a new lipstick or nail polish

Basically, the app offers inspiration in the forms of fun challenges (with prizes for the first people who complete them!), articles, tutorials and ideas on how you can shake up your routine. I just love that it's a great inspiration to start small, and then hopefully work up to lots of people living more colorful, creative lives!

How have you been shaking things up lately?
