A little bit of make-up goes a long way! As with the clothes that you choose to wear each day, it can enhance your appearance in a positive way.
This doesn’t mean that I’m advocating that we must all wear make-up all of the time, far from it. If you are perfectly happy without wearing make-up then that’s absolutely your choice.
Personally, I find that when I’ve ‘got my face on’, as my Mum used to say, I feel more confident and more ‘me’. I’m a bit of a ‘matchy matchy’ person and enjoy co-ordinating my make-up with what I am wearing too. So if I’m wearing something green, I’ll pick a green eye shadow or eye liner to make my eyes pop. It’s all part of my getting up and dressed routines.
Research has shown that make-up can make a positive difference to the way that you are perceived and has even been attributed to some people being offered higher salaries! It all adds up to creating a more polished appearance. I’ve written about this in an older blog – click here to read it.
I don’t believe that you have to spend hours applying your make up and let’s be honest, we don’t often have the luxury of time to devote to putting on make-up each day. So, if you’d like a quick and simple daily routine take a look at the Style Mojo video below.
It shows what a difference a little bit of make-up can make.
Choosing make-up products to suit your skin type, your skin tone, your overall colouring and that meet your ethical requirements can be a minefield. There are literally thousands of products out there.
A brand that I particularly like is Root Minerals, which offers vegan certified, cruelty free and ethically sourced products. Set up by Jay in his quest to source products for his wife who has sensitive skin, it’s a small UK-based company with great values. You can take a look at their website here – Root Minerals. They offer an amazing range of 70 pure pigment eye shadows, 30 organically-infused lipsticks, 36 powder foundations and an organic mascara. I hold some stock in my Studio, so if you’d like to give anything a try just let me know.
It goes without saying that if you’d like a little help, I’d love to offer you a Make-up Consultation so that you too can enjoy ‘putting on your face’ and looking and feeling healthy and vibrant!
