5 simple ways to make your face happy

06 July 2016, 13:04 Marisa Crous

What puts a smile on your face? Is it the thought of Donald Trump getting caught in a wind tunnel, pay day, or maybe a night of staying in watching Orange Is The New Black with a pizza and a bottle of red wine? For me, it's all of the above.

Unfortunately, one cannot attain these every day, keeping in mind the daily drudgery of going to work and the ever-present requirement to put your game face on. Your best foot forward. How to deal when you can't even, basically.

My solution? Decorate your face. Using makeup and other reinforcements. Because sometimes happiness (temporarily as it might be) is but a lipstick away.


At the moment Russian 3D Volume & Hollywood lashes are it in the field of lash extensions. This is when up to 200-500 eyelash extensions are applied to each of your eyes. I definitely want to give this a go soon as I've only heard great things.

They are a bit more pricey than normal extensions, but will bring out the vixen in you. Plus, bonus, no mascara needed.

Aqua liner

Brighten up your day with blue. I really love this trend and the awesome effect it has on one's entire look.

Soft pink lips and bold eyes

Go for subtle with nude lipstick or gloss and match it with a darker eye. This look is, of course, inspired by Kim K and her body con army, but avoid Kardashianisation by adding light foundation and a touch of highlighter to cheekbones instead of contouring it to resemble the Louvre.

Chocolate, black and dark purple/maroon lips

Indulging in the dark arts. Now a thing.

Red lips

Become French in an instant. This will please your face.
