Wearing makeup is rare in my home. I’m always aiming for the natural look, and it’s not always intentional.
On most days, I don’t wake up on time to go and pamper myself with a long shower or even enough time to blow dry my hair. That would be my ideal morning, and even throw in five minutes to do my makeup before heading out.
I’ll be honest, the only days I ever wear makeup is when Jeff is home to watch the kids, or if I feel like getting dolled up before heading out. I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one who feels like they need to be in the mood to wear makeup
Less Means More
Putting on makeup in the morning takes me five minutes, but I’ve managed to narrow it down to two by not applying blush anymore. You don’t need to wear blush when you reside in South Florida and have a natural tan all year round.
Now I just use three things:
2) Mascara; and
3) Lip balm/color.
I use foundation around my eyes to help minimize the “I’m exhausted” look. I know they sell concealers for these types of things, but my pan-stick foundation works wonders. It helps with the dark eyelids I inherited from my mom’s side. Darn you, European features!
Using mascara helps bring out my eyes, and makes me feel as though I really put a lot effort into applying makeup. At least three or four strokes of the wand, and it’s like magic!
I’ve always used lip balm, I’ll occasionally switch over to lipstick to feel more confident, but lip balm has my heart.
I first heard about Honestly Margo through one of my mom friends, Irene. She helps her teen daughter run the all-natural beauty products line. I was fascinated by Margo’s drive and her Irene’s dedication to helping her daughter’s business succeed.
Supporting friends and their passions are important to me, but when I received the Patty Peppermint Body Balm, I knew there was a reason why these ladies were so dedicated to sharing these products with everyone they know.
All-natural ingredients mixed into her own lip balm formula, Margo began sharing her creation with friends who were fascinated by product. They’ve even announced the addition of tinted lip balms!
From your cuticles to your knees, hands and feet. You can apply the Body Balms pretty much anywhere that needs an instant blast of moisture!
I tried the Patty Peppermint, which can be used anywhere throughout your body, and really enjoyed the results. My lips are a lot smoother and I can’t wait to try it elsewhere, especially on my cuticles. They’ve been screaming for some attention.
The Patty Peppermint Body Balm is great for those who reside in warmer temperatures because it’s refreshing to use throughout the year.
