What is Your Major Stress in Life?

What is your major stress in life? A few nights back, while queuing in a drive thru, my kids & I were talking about our personalities. We’re making fun of ourselves, and had a good laugh about it. On a serious side, I blurted out that I was a people pleaser. I wanted people to like me, and yes, it has been a major source of stress for me. It has been that way for me. I want to please my parents, siblings, teachers, classmates, bosses, co workers, hubby, kids, etc. I feel disappointment in myself, if I perceive that I don’t come up to their expectations. I feel ashamed of myself, if I deemed that I fail my children, whether imagined or not. These negative feeling does take a toll on my wellbeing. It took years learning this feeling of inadequacy, so it also took years to unlearn it. It is only through God’s mercy and love,  that I am able to accept myself, love myself. It is only through God’s unconditional love, that I am able to say, that  I  AM  ENOUGH.  I am a work in progress,

How to Apply Makeup Using Lipstick Only?

"Makeup is a way for a woman to look and feel like herself, only prettier and more confident" -Bobbi Brown

Hey ladies! How do you apply your makeup? Full face, sparingly or with lipstick only?

Mornings are the busiest part of the day for most women!

You are busy prepping your kids for school, your hubby for work and maybe yourself too if you’re working away from home!

How do you even have the time to do your makeup in the midst of chaos in your mornings?๐Ÿ˜…

I am a midlife mom and I am also one busy Mama in the mornings plus I also have to get ready for work too.

I have one makeup that I can’t live without and that’s my precious lipstick!๐Ÿ’„

Let me share with you, how I do my makeup using a lipstick only. It only takes a minute or two to apply my makeup and voila I am ready to face the world outside.

My current favorite lipstick is the Maybelline lipstick in the shade of Mauve It Up. It is in the shade of pink and complements my morena complexion as well.

Here’s how I apply my go to work makeup using lipstick only:

1.  Apply 3 swipes of lipstick along your cheekbones. With the use of the pads of your 3 middle fingers blend the lipstick along your cheeks to achieve a natural blush.

2.  Dip your forefinger in your lippy tube and blot the lipstick along your eyelids. Use a blotting motion only so as not to tag your skin.

3.   Lastly, apply  lipstick on your lips. Finish.

You’re all set to face the gruelling day ahead of you. Believe me when I say a touch of makeup on our face creates a lot of difference. Knowing that we look good and pretty boosts up our self confidence. Women wore so many hats, that of a mother, wife, daughter, sister, friend, and so on and so forth. It’s good to know that with a hint of makeup, we are armed with the knowledge that we are presentable to whoever we get to meet in our workplace or we are called on an impromptu meeting with our Boss.  

Self care is self love. Don’t begrudge yourself of your so called me time. It does a lot for our ego too.

Love & hugs to my fellow awesome midlife women!๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’‍♀️

  1. Quick, easy and looking great! Thanks for this great reminder that makeup does need be so complicated!


    1. Hi Rosemary! First, I would like you to know that I’m following you on FB and I look forward to see your posts. ๐Ÿฅฐ
      Thanks, for reading and I’m glad to share my quick to do makeup!๐Ÿ’•

  2. I have lash extensions, so if I am just running errands, a little bit of lipstick and light blush is all I feel like I need. I never wear foundation as my skin is dry and it just makes me look older. So, great tip!! Thanks!

    1. Hi Peta! I would like to have lash extensions too! I think, it would complement women who most of the time go bare face except with a hint of liptint, blush and a touch of face powder to keep off oiliness on the face. Thanks for reading, have a nice day!๐Ÿฅฐ

  3. I commented, for some reason it showed up as anonymous. It is Peta Sklarz. Thanks!
