Less is more
It’s so important to remind yourself of what life is actually about, and acknowledging what you have. These days, with social media being such a big part of our lives, it is so easy to lose grip on reality, and feel bad about yourself.Less is more, simplicity has it’s own beauty. It is absolutely alright if you don’t have amazing makeup skills, you don’t look like a super model or you don’t dress like some socialite. Learn to count your blessings, even when it comes to the littlest things in life, and remember that little things are the big things. I post beauty related content on my blog 5 days out of 7. And I find it to be really important to post a reminder, that it is just to help anyone out, who needs that information, and it will help them feel better about themselves. It is about sharing my knowledge, what I have learned with other people. Sometimes a red lipstick, does make you feel a whole lot better about yourself, it might be a very little thing for some people, but me as a very normal housewife and a mom, I love the feeling it gives me. And if doing little things like that is going to make me happy I will continue doing them. You do not have to do big, royal things to make yourself happy. I share makeup looks which are very complicated for many people, they are glam and out there, but if you are not good at it, you don’t have enough time, energy or resources to do it, it is not something that should make you unhappy. Quite a few people have wrote me that they can not achieve certain looks, because they don’t own certain makeup products. And my answer to that is, it does not matter. Work with what you have got. A classic, clean and simple glam is just as beautiful as full-on glam is. There is something about that simplicity of minimal makeup that really enhances you personality. A simple winged eyeliner and a lipstick that you love, looks just as pretty as slapping on a million products does, if not better. I am sharing this super simple look, as a reminder that you don’t need a fancy cut crease, shimmery, glittery, smokey eye with super harsh, vamp lips to look and feel glamorous. It’s not about how you look from the outside, it’s about how you feel from the inside.
Quick, Easy and Fuss-free makeup look
This is the kind of makeup look you can wear with any lip color, you can wear nude lipstick to super vampy colors, every lip color would look absolutely amazing, and it will not look over-done, no matter how dark and vampy your lip color is. I think it is amazing for people who do not have a lot of time to get ready and people who are not really great at doing their makeup and also for those who just don’t like wearing a lot of makeup. It takes 5 minutes and you are out the door, looking like you have your thoughts and life together. I have used very few products for this whole look.

I know a lot of people will find this post boring, useless or just not so interesting, but this is important to me, and I hope we all learn to count our blessings and be happy with our lives and make the best out of everything we are blessed with.
