What's The Best Liquid Lipstick

Does Your Age Dictate What Trends You Try? #BuryMeMondays

Does Your Age Dictate What Trends You Try

Things that we loved when we were younger don’t always work well for us when we’re older. At the same I think we avoid or let go of certain things because of our perceptions and not how it looks. There are lots of articles that talk about transitioning from THIS product to something more age appropriate and while that type of thinking has its place, I wonder if it stifles us.

So does your age dictate what you trends you try? Leave a comment below, use the #BuryMeMondays tag on Twitter, or send me a snap.

How Do You Deal With Makeup Haters? #BuryMeMondays

How Do You Deal With Makeup Haters?

You love makeup, but someone in your life doesn’t. They want you to wear less. They want you to buy less. They don’t understand how you could get excited about lipstick, mascara, highlighter. They’re quick to tell you they don’t need it(so and?). Basically, they don’t know how to keep their f*#%ing mouths shut. So what do you do? Do you have a clapback ready or do you just let it roll off your back because they’re pressed enough for the both of you? Let me know in the comments.

What Does Self-Care Look Like For You? #BuryMeMondays

What Does Self Care Look Like For You

When it comes to self-care it’s easy to default to beauty rituals and since this is a beauty blog it’s probably even easier.  I want to put something else into the air about this though.

Beauty things kind of lift me up(surprise, surprise), but that’s not everyone. If that’s not you, have you investigated what helps you recharge your battery so you can keep doing what you need/want to do? What settles you? What helps you right the ship if you veer off course a bit?

If it’s a beauty thing, great, but if it’s not don’t feel wrong. What your spirit may be telling you is that getting your hair done is nice, but it’s not enough. So let me know what self-care looks like for you in the comments. Use the #burymemondays hashtag and tag me on Twitter and Instagram (@shantafabulous).
