We love winter for all sorts of reasons—it's both a great time to recharge and to figure out which brand makes your favorite hot chocolate. That said, dressing for winter, after a while, can be a bit stunting. Covering everything up with an overcoat/scarf/hat combo can get old. To combat these feelings, we're taking a pledge to get down and dirty (and also have some fun) experimenting with something that could always use some freshening up: our beauty routines. Whether experimenting for you means working to find your new signature scent or trying out some nutty runway-ready colors for lips and eyes, there's something out there for you to fiddle with, beautifully. Click through for the 10 things we're itching to try.
