Happy #BrightLipThursday, Beautiful!
No secrets here - BlaireBeauty ADORES a bold lipstick.
A bold lipstick goes with almost everything.
A bold lipstick makes you look put together.
A bold lipstick amps your confidence in a single swipe.
I've said it here before - the BEST things to pair with a BOLD lip are healthy skin and stunning face makeup. Thanks to an incredible partnership with The Truth Beauty Company I have found a spectacular mix of products that are having an impact on so many ways.
1) By Introducing me to some great natural/clean/green solutions to skincare.
After the birth of my incredible daughter, I saw immediate changes to my skin.
Suddenly, I was breaking out on my face and experiencing skin issues I had never experienced before. Now, I feel like I have started to combat my skin issues by really honing in on a consistent routine. Thankfully, I have discovered some spectacular products to get me there.
French Pink Clay Konjac Face Sponge, by Wyld Skincare
This little gem helps to clean and gently exfoliate your skin, while leaving behind the rejuvenating benefits of clay. Who knew that a little, biodegradable sponge could pack such a mean punch to leave skin clean, nourished and ready for whatever you have in store for it.
ICOQ-10 Toner, by Indie Lee
Fresh, hydrating, pH-balancing and alcohol free. This spray toner is a perfect addition to any skincare routine to leave skin soft, pore-free and hydrated. Gone are the days where your skin will be left feeling tight or uncomfortable after washing it. Spray directly onto skin or apply with a cotton pad. Either way, you will instantly feel refreshed and ready for makeup.
2) GREAT makeup CAN be clean.
Would it be spectacular to be able to rock zero makeup and only wear lipstick?
Goodness, would I adore that. Do I have a love for wearing makeup but love looking flawless and natural? You're darn right.
ENTER - A foundation that has been a game changer.
Typically, more "natural" foundations don't pack a mean enough punch for me.
Either they are fairly sheer, too skin-case based or don't come in the formulation that I enjoy.
Boy, have I been missing out. Vapour's Organic Beauty's Atmosphere Luminous Foundation is OUTSTANDING. It comes in a stick and applies like a dream.
With just a couple of swipes on the skin and blended in with fingers, my skin looks and feels incredible. Hydrated, moisturized but not shiny. When set with powder, it lasts and looks beautiful ALL DAY. Interestingly enough too, it smells INCREDIBLE too. Super fresh and beautiful.
Moral of the story......give NATURAL, GREEN and VEGAN a chance.
I will continue to test and showcase some great products from The Truth Beauty Company.
Jennifer, the fabulous owner, is giving me an education on how natural beauty is changing the game. Not only can you truly find products that WORK but that also take into consideration the planet that we love.
Check out The Truth Beauty Company and tell them that BlaireBeauty sent ya!
More to come.
Thanks so much for taking the time to pop by and visit. We love having you here.
Recently, I have received lots of questions around my morning routine.
Today - I answer your questions!
To be honest, today is THE perfect day to talk about these things because I was woken up (by my DOG!!!) 15 minutes before my alarm sounded - which is 4:10 am on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Rather than using that as an excuse to turn my alarm off and sleep for another hour, I got up. Took the dog for a talk. Brought her home and dove into my workout. It just so happened that it was heavy. Difficult. Time consuming. Perfect.
Was it mentally difficult? You better believe it.
Thankfully, because I chisel these four days out of my week, at this crazy time, I give myself permission. Permission to,
Get increasingly mentally tough.
Give myself the time to take care of my body.
Give myself perspective on my week and day to come.
Spend time on my own, doing something that is really tough.
All of these things combined make for a better day. Even if I'm sleepy and relying on MORE coffee and lipstick than other days, I'm better for it. Tired and physically exhausted is far better than tired because your body is craving movement.
If you would like a more indepth view into my workouts, what I eat, when I eat, how often I eat and my MOTIVATION for doing it all, let me know. Happy to write a series that reflects just that.
Until then, don't roll over. Get up and move your body.
Your worth it and your body will thank you.
