Quick Fix for Tough Times

Quick Fix for Tough Times

When you think about changing your look, you might feel like it requires a dramatic haircut or a brand-spanking new outfit. But sometimes just a few small changes can make you feel like a million bucks. Shape magazine has a couple of great tips for how you can look great fast, without emptying your wallet.

1. Shape up those brows. The dreaded uni-brow or simply an untamed mess above your eyes could be adding years to your face. Try an at-home brow kit or lean on a professional for some shaping and waxing. You may also want to try a popular salon trend called "threading" which is known as a painless way to get rid of pesky hairs.

2. Moisturize, baby! A simple moisture mask can work wonders on a tired face. Let it sit on your face for five minutes and you'll be out the door and looking fresh in no time!

3. Brighten those pearly whites. A whitening boost to your chompers is what some dentists like to call "an instant face-lift." If laser whitening at a professional's office is out of your budget, try an DIY treatment, like Colgate Simply White which is about $15 at drugstores.

We want to know: What quick fix do you rely on to revitalize your look?

I've been waxing my brows for years. I'm too much of a wimp for tweezing so I go to a professional.

Blush. No matter how bad my day (or face) is looking, a bit of blush always seems to brighten my face up just enough. Love it!
