 applying rouge

Being in the cosmetics industry for eleven years taught me a lot of secrets to looking beautiful.  I think the biggest secret I learned was that if you feel beautiful, you look more beautiful.  While a little mascara and blush certainly helped, sometimes it was the inner boost that really counted.  In my own journey of realizing and noticing beauty around me, I discovered a few other things that have helped me actually feel beautiful and confident –even in the moments when I not feel’in it.  What’s your greatest beauty tip?  We would all love to know your secret! 

 

Mary’s Beauty Tip #1   Create a Beauty Mantra: “I’m the Party”

Years ago, I was feeling self-conscious about going to a gathering with people I didn’t know.  I thought of my younger sister who I always believed to be the life of the party.  She is very outgoing, and always made friends easily.  Inspired by her social ease, I suddenly started to think to myself, “I’m the Party!”  I said it about ten times while in my car outside the restaurant where I was meeting this group of strangers.  As I walked into restaurant I suddenly had thoughts of being “The Party.”  Since I was the party, I felt as though it was now up to me to be open, inviting, and help the others open up and have fun.  I found myself in a giving, beautiful spirit.  That night I made great friends that I still hold dear today!

To create your own mantra, start by thinking of a woman you admire like your sister, your best-friend, a favorite celebrity, maybe, Oprah?  Think of the quality she may embody that you admire the most. Perhaps she is open-minded, radiant, easy-going, or confident?  Often that’s the quality we’d like to embody.  Turn that quality into a mantra for you: Confidence is my middle name!  I am self-expression!   I am LOVE!  When you wake up this week, try repeating that mantra several times as you wake up, or before you spend time with people and see how beautiful you feel!

 

Mary’s Beauty Tip #2   Create a Beauty Ritual: Reveal the Girlie!

After a full day of having direction, to do lists, and being in focus-mode, create a ritual to reveal your inner girlie that’s been waiting all day to simply feel.  Find out what has you feel re-charged and rejuvenated. (Painting your nails, taking a bath, or lathering up with sweet-scented lotion) Something involving your powerful sense of smell or touch.  This ritual must be done regularly to be a ritual: a ceremonial act or series of such acts. My girlie ritual is simply to slather on my favorite vanilla-orange scented lotion all over my body (Hugo Naturals from Whole Foods—Sooo yummy!).  I touch my soft skin, and I feel like my girliness has just been unveiled.  My man loves it too!

 

Mary’s Beauty Tip #3   Have a Beauty Quick-Fix: What’s your red lipstick?

When you need a quick-fix to help you smile and breath in the midst of your challenging day, create a beauty quick-fix–something you do that instantly has you feel happier, and beautiful.  Think of your favorite perfume scent, lipstick, or maybe your favorite song. ( It could be something that reminds you of your last moment of beauty- a vacation, a hot date, or fun night out)  Years ago, before a big meeting at work, I was feeling very stressed and tired from working the night before.  I had forgotten my make-up bag, and all I had was red lipstick in my purse.  I put it on, and when I looked in the mirror, I suddenly felt alive.  The boldness of the red seemed to wake me up, and I couldn’t help but smile and feel confident and beautiful (It might have also been the memory of the fun I had the last time I wore red lipstick in Vegas).  My meeting went very well and ever since then, I keep my red lipstick handy when I need a pick-me-up.  Take it from me–Having that quick-fix handy can give a much needed lift to the spirit, so your beauty can abound.
