A Little Goes a Long Way: Tiny Changes Impact Your Style

Raise your hand if you’re a sucker for super dramatic, breathtakingly transformational before-and-after photos? That’s what I thought: Just about all of us find those duckling-to-swan images hard to resist. It’s just too fun to imagine all the luxurious makeup, gorgeous clothes, and covetable shoes used to make those changes possible!

Amanda’s Simple Look

But at Styling by Sisters, we know that dramatic makeovers and fussy makeup routines are much better in theory than practice. Seriously, who’s got time for a seven-step smoky eye or cash for Louboutins in every color? Maybe if there was a money tree growing out back and you could hire a staff of stylists … but here in reality? Not so much.

Which is why we help our clients find tiny, simple, easy ways to change their makeup, hair and dressing practices. We know that most of you are incredibly busy, overbooked, and TIRED much of the time. And ombre lips and contouring sound great, but just ain’t happening. Not every day.

Remember Amanda? We introduced her a few months back, but wanted to revisit her story because it’s such a great example of how tiny changes can impact your style. Amanda pours her heart and soul into her family and doesn’t save much time or energy for herself. So when she came to us for help, we knew we needed to keep it simple and easy or it just wasn’t gonna stick.

We took her to the salon for a quick update to her hairstyle, taught her the basics of skincare, and showed her a five-minute face using just foundation, mascara, and lip gloss. We experimented with pieces she already had hanging in her closet, and added a few more from local thrift stores and hand-me-downs to round out her collection. In the end, she hadn’t emptied her savings account, hadn’t added hours to her morning routine, and hadn’t created a style that was waaaaay outside her comfort zone. But she had learned a few incredibly simple ways to make herself look more polished and put-together every single day. And her confidence absolutely soared.

Fashion magazines make style look hard. But it doesn’t have to be! Even if you hate shopping and fear makeup, we can help you create outfit formulas and add easy products to your daily prep. We’ve worked with dozens of clients like Amanda, who look at five-inch heels and 20-color eyeshadow palettes and think, “Ain’t nobody got time for that.” And we’ve helped them learn to be more stylish one tiny tweak at a time.

Sound like something you’d like to try? Longing to feel chic but unsure where to start? Reach out and we’ll set you up with a consult. We promise it’ll be easy, fun, and change your style for the better!
