National Lipstick Day….

Posted By: Terri
Category: Beauty

It’s National Lipstick Day which usually puts a little skip in my step but suffice it to say there’s not been a whole lot of Lipstick vibe since our mouth must be covered with masks during  Covid 19. But looking on the BRIGHT side of things-somedayyyyy we will be back in good graces and be able to once again show our pearly whites with masks a thing of the past and then we can perfect our pout with the prettiest of lipstick shades. Until then,mask on,stay safe and when push comes to shove might I suggest a little lip liner-since it’s a bit of color when the mask does come down and leaves less marks than lipstick on your face mask.  TO celebrate the day here are a few fun facts pertaining to this wonderful make-up addition: I don’t know about you but I for one LOVE a great shade of lipstick!

 

Fun and Fabulous Lipstick Tips..

Tip– When applying foundation continue over the lips to provide a base for lip liner and lipstick.

Tip– If your lipstick smells rancid, it is! Want it to last longer? Place it in the fridge.

Tip- Wrong lipstick shades can age you, steer clear of brown lipstick shades. Avoid matte lipstick as they tend to settle into your lip lines. Instead, try creamier lipsticks or glosses. Glosses are especially youthful and make your lips appear “pouty”.

Tip- Here’s a simple trick I once read models use to keep lipstick off their teeth. Apply lipstick, then place a finger in your mouth. Close lips around your finger and pull finger out. This should remove any excess lipstick, thereby keeping it from collecting on your teeth.

Fact- Every woman today absolutely automatically applies lipstick before going out of home. This habit is very old indeed: women began to apply lipstick in primeval times.

Fact- In old times, noble Japanese women were not allowed to appear in public without intensive makeup.

Fact- In ancient Egypt, women loved to tint their lips with attractive purple-red color.

Fact- During the Middle Ages, the popularity of lipstick declined. In that era, lipstick was considered to be a cosmetic which is suitable for prostitutes and lower class women.

Fact- More lipsticks are sold on a gloomy, rainy day.

Self Care Sunday’s

Posted By: Terri
Category: Beauty

Self Care Sunday’s has suddenly become a “thing” and I would like to thank the genius who originally coined the term and got the whole ball rolling on this concept.

Way back when (if anyone can remember) Sunday was deemed as a day of rest-dating back to a biblical reference. Yet somehow, that mantra has gone by the way side and we have become obsessed with using Sunday as a catch up day to complete everything we didn’t quite get to during the week. (If this resonates with you -raise a hand. Present company is included..so don’t for a minute feel guilty.

For the good of our mental health and in a collective quest to enjoy this wonderful life we’ve been given here are a few suggestions to try on your “Self care Sundays”

Let’s start with the number one rule for unplugging: Limit time on all social media to a bare minimum.

Choose from any on of the following to aid in relaxing:

Take a walk (outside) 

Take a bubble bath. 

Listen to some beautiful meditation music.

Read a book (remember books).

Book a mani pedi or give yourself one.

Get a massage/a facial or heck why not check into a spa for the entire day.

Deviate from your diet and enjoy something really decadent. Savor every bite.

I hope you’ll take time to take care of YOU. Have a beautiful relaxing Sunday.

Lipstick Love

Posted By: Terri
Category: Beauty

I KNOW this past Sunday was National Lipstick day. If I had my way EVERYDAY would be National Lipstick Day. Lipstick is essential to life or at the very least the one make up staple that I strongly feel you should never be without. ..and by “without”… I  really mean-DON’T even think of leaving the house without it on. You can go without mascara, eyeliner, blush,maybe even foundation,BUT I can’t even process going out of the house with out wearing lipstick. I think it is one of the greatest inventions EVER! Lipstick brightens up your face, adds a pop of perk to your complexion and is available in every price point soooo no one needs to ever be without at least one shade of lipstick in their make up bag.

Monday and Maple Holistics

Posted By: Terri
Category: Beauty

Every once in awhile I come across a “perfect product” that I just have to share with all of my wonderful readers ASAP! Sit down and take note because this is ONE  of those products!

Like most women I’m always on the lookout for great skin care products that reduce the sign(s) of aging and if given the choice  prefer Holistic  products whenever possible. So imagine my delight when I came across an Anti Aging Serum called Vitamin C+ (love the +plus) Facial Serum that was all that and more.

I applied the serum using the dropper applicator included in the packaging twice a day. In the morning I decided to add the serum to my daily moisturizer which made the application ultra smooth and gave  my skin a dewy finish. In the evening I would apply the second application to a clean face after my evening shower and noticed in the morning that my skin looked refreshed. Within the first few days of using Maple Holistics Vitamin C+ Anti Aging Facial Serum my skin appeared not only tighter but smoother and brighter. This product checked out all my “particulars” when it comes to skin care:

  • Easy application
  • Lightly scented
  • Non greasy
  • Goes on smoothly and hydrates skin ASAP
  • Noticable improvement in skin tone almost immediately
  • Holistic
  • AFFORDABLE   Priced at $11.77 (under $20.00)-Pinch me now!

*No wonder it got a 4.5 out of 5 rating on it’s website. I love this product and will continue to use it and sing it’s praises.

Now here’s the best part of the post- not only can I highly recommend this site and it’s wonderful product line but Maple Holistics is offering FREE (Yes, you’re reading that right) samples for you to try. Just click on the picture of oranges below and be directed to their site and fill out the form. . Check out all their highly rated and affordable holistic products. Enjoy!
