When we first decided to introduce Saturday Self Love as a new weekly feature, I was ecstatic! After years & years of horrible self esteem, I’ve been trying to plant little seedlings of self love inside my head, hoping they’ll flourish enough for my little ones to see. What better way to teach them to love themselves & their bodies, than by showing them exactly how it’s done?
One way that I have been cultivating love for myself is via cosmetics. I’ve been working hard to remember to keep up with my face washing routine, & to go along with that, I’ve been trying to not leave the house without a little bit of sprucing up. I love doing a full face of makeup, but I don’t really have the time for that with the two littles! So, I’ve incorporated some basics into my routine before rushing out of the house.
All I do is a little eyebrow definition, mascara, & use a tinted lip balm. That’s it! I keep the tinted lip balm with me through out the day to keep it fresh, but the rest of it stays put for the whole day. I’ve been encouraging my boyfriend to do a little bit of the same before we go out. His thing has become mustache wax & beard balms/oils. He now never leaves the house without putting in some beard oil! Under the cut, I’ll include a list of some of our favorite products!
These short, little things help us feel a little more put together & human before we leave the house.
