Lip Color for Non-Lipstick Wearers

 

Do you ever see a photo of a woman in bright red lipstick and she looks amazing so you think I am going to wear red lipstick. Then you do it and you feel like a clown? Yeah me too. At least that was how I felt with any lipstick for years. For years I seriously only wore nude lip colors, I just felt so awkward with bold color on my lips.

I am not altogether sure what changed, maybe it was just me becoming more comfortable in my own skin but eventually lip stick and I became friends. Even though we are now friends I still reserve lipstick for special occasions (and photo shoots of course) but I still want color everyday. Continue Reading

The gifts of winter… chapped hands, dry throat and frizzy hair! Every year I battle all 3 and while I can never fully get away from them I can manage these beauty burdens. As a mom, I feel like the chapped hands are so much worse than ever before. I wash my hands 2-3 times more often as a mom and all that harsh soap and water really does a number on my hands. Just the other day I realized I had not been using lotion regularly and my hands were so chapped they hurt.

It’s that time of the year, winter and holiday. The cold air wreaks havoc on my skin and my hair so I must alter my beauty routine to accommodate for the changing weather. Hydration is key in my winter beauty routine and lately my lips have been suffering mercilessly. Just the other day I put on lipstick only to see obvious dry patches sticking out and absorbing too much color. I knew I needed a solution. I needed to not only find a great and affordable lip scrub but also a great daily lip color that provides moisture. I also needed some great new skin care, hair care and even a fun new fragrance for the season.

During the holidays, I feel like I am so stretched for time. My busy days get even busier and I find myself desperate to find a bit of extra time any way I can. Busy times like this I find myself pairing my daily beauty routine back to the basics. I turn to beauty products that can serve double duty and tend to look for things that are fast acting but effective. Most mornings my amazing husband starts the day with the kids by making breakfast and packing lunches. While he is busy downstairs starting the day, I am taking my shower and getting ready to great the day.
