Shop for new makeup
After you've thrown out all your old glosses and shadows, now's the perfect time to update your makeup bag and add new palettes to your current collection.
Get an idea of what flatters your complexion by visiting one of the department store cosmetic counters (such as M.A.C., Lancome, or Clinique) for a consultation. "Some counters offer on-the-spot makeovers," says Robin McGraw, author of Robin McGraw's Complete Makeover Guide, and their beauty experts will match products to your skin tone and type, your lifestyle needs as well as your desired look.
