Dear 15-year-old Monique,
I’m going to make this short and to the point.
Stop it! Stop it right now! Stop hating your body. Stop hating your hair. Stop envying the “popular” girls. And please stop wishing you weren’t you.
Last week I wrote a post titled “I Think it’s Time for a Personal Beauty Intervention.” I wrote about the struggles we go through when it comes to personal beauty and how we’re always criticizing ourselves. I made a point to emphasize how our level of self-esteem is contagious. Sometimes we don’t realize how that affects others around us.
Tom Pecheux you are a genius. Estee Lauder’s new fall 2012 Pure Color collections are to…die…for! In case you’re wondering, Tom is the Creative Makeup Director for Estee Lauder and he created them. The colors are so amazingly brilliant, intense, and deep. It’s like they were made for me. They are the perfect fall colors, with some that could even transition into other seasons.
Unless you were born with full lashes and brows, you might not really care about this week’s Beauty Buzz. But, chances are you’re one of the many women with sparse eyelashes and eyebrows. For years I thought I had thick eyebrows, but now as I’m getting older (and wiser), I notice how thin they’re getting.
Imagine a world with no make-up or skin care products. Would you even care what your skin looked like on a bare face? Did I just freak you out? To some of us, just the thought of going make-up free can be scary. Blemishes, discoloration, and dark spots can really stop us from celebrating our natural beauty.
Who loves surprises? I do! Well…sometimes I do. But, don’t let me find out you’re planning a surprise, because then I’ll try to figure it out! LOL! I definitely didn’t try to figure out what I was getting in my Lovely Beauty Box from the Lovely Beauty Shop! So, I was pleasantly surprised when I opened up to see what was in their (first ever) box.
I don’t care what time of the year it is, I’m always wearing a facial moisturizer with SPF in it. You know I need to take care of this skin! Artistry and I think you do too! That’s why they want to give one of you lovely readers a chance to enter to win a bottle of their TIME DEFIANCE® UV Defense SPF 50 Ultra Facial Sunscreen.
I don’t know if you ever remember me telling you how inexperienced I was when it came to makeup. I honestly learn how to do something with each and every product I get my hands on. In fact, I look up a lot of YouTube tutorials for help. I’m not ashamed to admit it. Today, after months of trying different products, I’ve finally found my basics.
Clinique is always creating the most amazing products and these three are no exception. When it comes to our skin, we’re always trying the newest thing to help get that flawless look. Are you worried about pores, oily skin, premature signs of aging, and dark spots on your hands? Here’s a quick introduction to Clinique’s Pore Refining Solutions Stay-Matte Hydrator, Age Defense BB Cream Broad Spectrum, and Even Better Dark Spot Correcting Hand Cream Broad Spectrum.
