I’m putting the B back in F.A.B Cocktail! I realized I don’t touch on Beauty much, so I wanted to share something with you that’s been on my mind.
I had a conversation the other day about makeup and how I don’t particularly love it. If I do wear anything, it’s either bronzer (I live for a sunkisssd look), mascara (Enhancing my eyelashes is where it’s at), or lipstick (Hello, red lip is life). I strongly believe in showcasing your natural beauty, minimally.
Now don’t get me wrong, makeup is an amazing tool and the application process is literally an art form, so I commend those who have the patience and diligence to apply a full face daily. But it’s just not my cup of tea.
There was a point though, when I secretly wanted so badly to wear makeup because my skin was getting bad. I had frequent breakouts and no skincare regime would seem to work. I wanted to apply whatever I could to cover up the imperfections. But I had to stop and say, you’re beautiful just the way you are. And through trial and error, I finally found a routine that worked for me.
These three products are applied to my face daily for smooth, sometimes glowy skin. Breakouts sometimes do still occur but typically I only see them now about a week before my menstrual cycle begins. I start each morning with a towelette to get rid of any dirt or oil. It’s also really refreshing, giving me a little boost in the AM. I then apply a dollop of the face cream. It has SPF so it’s great for the summertime, too. Then I finish it off with a few spritz of rose spray to give me a smooth, dewy look. The rose spray is also a great little pick-me-up for the mornings.
So friends. Keep on doing whatever it is you’re doing to make you happy but just know, what God gave you is beautiful too!
