The power of makeup has been my therapy in the hardest of times, whether that’s me wearing it, applying it or studying it.
So even during days when I’m not quite on form, makeup just helps me spring up a release of confidence and uplifting mood.
Today was one of those emotional days. Whereas before I would have gone deeper into a dark place, today I know as well as dealing with internal thoughts, putting on some makeup will help me to totally be able to face the world, and that’s exactly what I did.
Last night and this morning was a tearful night, resulting in puffy eyes with the usual pores to reduce away. I used an ice treatment and wonder product called Pore Professional by Benefit Cosmetics, I love to help both these problem areas.
Even when I’m getting ready with me in one of these moods, each step helps uplift me and by the time I get to putting my lipstick, my tone and nature springs up.
Join the conversation: I’m a regular woman who has learnt to live with grief as a new normal way of life, but also grabbing each opportunity because it could be my last moment.
