A Beauty Compass
~the right direction in all things beauty~
Dear Mom ~
If you are a mom and reading this - I feel for you and am right there with you! This blog is intended for You today - hopefully, to make your life, with kids, a little easier. I have four kids of my own and some days...ok, All can be challenging! Mornings, especially, can be hard - even if you don't have to go anywhere getting your kids off to where ever they are going, while trying to look decent, are very hard. I put together an essential list to help your day go a little smoother, so you don't have to wear sun glasses in the sixty below pitch black of winter (guilty!):
#1.) Start off with a clean slate for your face. I love the Aveda Brightening cleanser - it transforms dull/tired skin to give you a Much needed glow!
#2.) After cleansing while skin is still damp, use about half a pea size of the Aveda Energizing Eye Creme. Place it on ring fingers and gently blot out those purple tired circles - with my consistent two-three hour sleeps a night, sometimes a girl's gotta fake it!
#3.) Set everything with the Pure Botanicals Firming/Toning Mist. This feels like a refreshing cool drink of water for your skin and if you're running on empty your skin will definitely thank you.
*If you have time, the kids are cooperating and you feel really ambitious - put on the Aveda Tint. A moisturizer and foundation in one, beautiful and dewy - not heavy at all! Make those lovely lashes come out of hiding with our Mosscara infused with rose oil and the school will think the nanny/babysitter is dropping your kids off.*
#4.) Who has time for a shower? Not I most days. When that happens, lucky us, Aveda is coming out with Shampure Dry Shampoo THIS October!!!! It sucks up all the oil in your hair and makes it smell like organic angel wings - No lie. Wrap your hair up in a bun or messy bun because you GO...all the way out the door.
#5.) Hold UP! Before you go, dab on some of the Aveda blue oil. It helps with migraines, sore muscles (if you had to sleep in a crib or contorted in a corner) and can wake you up with it's peppermint scent - aroma is also great for masking those showerless days. It now comes in a roller ball, so you can fit it in your purse or diaper bag or gun holster.
I hope this list has helped somewhat! Don't forget our products will be 40% off come November 6th for our annual 'Kiss (Kick?) Your Hunter Goodbye' Sale - so Stop on In!!
THANK YOU MOMS FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO! Remember: We are all a hot mess, some are just better at faking it than others. Truth!
