Hello my sweet readers, I’m back after several health struggles, with a new post, hopefully the re-start of my blog post routine. I am very glad to be back and I have to confess I’ve missed you! I hope you’ve missed me too! This post is a collaboration I did with several other beauty bloggers in which I share with you 3 beauty secrets (you can find them under the #3secretefeminine ). Let’s not ramble anymore and start with the first beauty secret a la Monica :
Make yourself the top priority (at least for a little while)
This is a hard one I know. Women nowadays are very busy with work, taking care of their families, doing serious multi-tasking every day. But you cannot forget yourself! Dedicate at least half an hour a day to you and only you! Make your daily face routine a priority (make-up removal and face cleanse, moisturize well and don’t forget about the sunscreen protection, the higher the better!) and don’t forget about the rest of your body too. It doesn’t matter the price of the products, the cheapest of them will work very well for you if they suit your skin type and have the right ingredients for you!
If you have more free time for yourself do something that makes you happy, read a good book, watch your favourite show on TV, listen to good music, cook some yummy treat, do some gardening, play with the children or anything that makes you feel happy and fulfilled. No matter how difficult your day was until now, you can definitely make it better! If you are happy, it will definitely show! Your inner happiness and beauty will shine through! This brings me to the second beauty secret :
Start the day with a smile!
Yes, I know, this is not easy! I’ve heard this before .. yes, it’s all about the power of positive thinking. Yes, it is a cliché, but it is true! I’ve seen it on myself. Start your day thinking it will be great. Be happy and positive about the day ahead, no matter how difficult it may be. Enjoy a good cup of coffee or tea and savor it.. if the rest of the day was bad, you can think back about the pleasure of the morning. Be glad for the sunshine, the flowers in bloom, the sweet singing of the birds in the sky, the purring of your cat, the banter of your kids and so on.. If you think about good things, they will happen to you. Anyway it’s great to start the day with a large smile I can tell you, you’ll make the others around you happy and they will start smiling too. And it’s a great feeling! The third beauty secret is…
The power of the red lipstick!
Yes, you’ve heard me right! It’s the well hidden (and well-known) secret in the beauty industry! Some years ago I tended to wear only nice pink and peach neutrals on the lips. Outrageous, right? Well, something had changed and I switched from wearing mostly neutrals to wearing mostly bold, strong colours, especially reds and pinks. And yes, wearing red makes all the difference in the world!
If you have a bad day, or you haven’t slept at night, or you are sick and pale, a suitable red lipstick will bring life into your face and make you look and feel better (you can also put a tiny bit onto the cheeks!). A gorgeous red shade can boost your confidence level and you’ll stand and walk taller and bolder. And you’ll feel like you are on the top of the world and you can do anything! And it’s a great attitude to start the day I can tell you! So beware of the power of the red lipstick!
I love my reds, what can I say.. But boy do I feel mighty good wearing them! I hope you enjoy my not so secret beauty secrets. What are yours? Tell me in the comments below!
