Most people like to start off the new year by making resolutions. I like to start it off by sleeping in and maybe watching football. Yes, I am one of those people who doesn’t believe in New Year’s Resolutions. What I do resolve to do, and practice quite often, is to revive and refresh my beauty routine.
It wasn’t so long ago when prepping your skin before applying makeup was simple. For me, it consisted of only applying moisturizer. The idea of a primer or lip treatments weren’t really available or even popular. Today, all of that has changed and I put a lot more pep in my prep.
The holidays have come and gone. The temperatures are plummeting and winter is in full splendor. I don’t know about you, but I could use some extra pampering this time of year. I’ve found just the thing to rescue me from head to toe with cruelty-free products from Beterre Skin+Care.
It’s hard to believe Christmas and Hanukkah are only a few days away. The stockings might be hung by the fire and the menorah ready to be set a glow, but you might still struggling to find the perfect gift to light up the holidays in style for your special someone. Or perhaps you haven’t quite decided what it is you’re longing to see under the tree or during those eight crazy nights.
Shaving, the simple utterance of the word makes me want to say, “eeck.” It’s a drag. It’s a pain. It’s a balancing act, especially in the shower. Since there is no good place to prop up my leg, I typically shave after I take a shower, with my leg on top of the toilet. Not only is this annoying, but also a waste of water and time. But no more, thanks to the Shower Sidekick from Cotidea.
Earlier this year, I remember reading about Disney’s newest princess, Elena of Avalor. I didn’t give it too much thought until I went to Disney World this past October. It was my niece and nephew’s first visit, and I quickly discovered my 3-yr old niece, who also considers herself to be a princess, was a huge Elena fan.
They say the eyes are the windows to the world. Well then, my eyes better sparkle and shine. Thanks to the Japonesque Pixelated Color Eye Palette, Mini Eyelash Curler and Velvet Touch Eye Brush Set my mission for creating eye-defining looks for day or night can be accomplished.
I must confess something…I’ve become a skincare junkie. I’m constantly searching for the best and the newest, especially those products geared towards anti-aging. I nerd out reading about new skincare innovations and technology. And if there is a gadget involved, I’m all about it.
Fall is in full orange, brown, and yellow bloom. Pumpkin spice is everywhere, and soon we’ll be enjoying some a crisp chill in the air. As we embrace the new season, it’s also time to embrace a new Japonesque Velvet Touch Face Palette.
Even though summer is over, protecting my skin from the elements continues. I always start my skincare/makeup routine with a good moisturizer and some SPF, like the new Coola Mineral Face SPF 30 Rosilliance. If I’m not using an SPF-based foundation or want additional protection, I can finish my routine with the Coola Face SPF 30 Makeup Setting Spray.
