What are you doing in this unprecedented time? Are you having an impromptu Star Wars Party without the costumes?
What about the simple makeup look that Princess Leia wears in the film "A New Hope"?
With make-up on.
Yet a huge change for me personally was triggered two weeks ago on Friday this week. I was in town and my eyes were streaming. They were itchy and felt like sandpaper at the back. And my nose was like a hosepipe and I couldn't see!
I was seeing a team member and couldn't concentrate, see or anything. And after explaining my symptoms to her. She said that I was likely to be suffering from "Hayfever".
I'm in my mid 40s and end up having this disease which I had never even considered that I would ever HAVE and I was like WHAT? REALLY! and ended up sleeping for most of the evening and then staying in at home for the weekend.
On the Monday morning I went to the gp and explained what happened and what my symptoms were and he said the same as my team member so I was getting used to having it and taking the things that ease the symptoms.
I empathise completely with people who have had it for years and have the problems of wearing make-up while having streaming eyes and runny noses.
So haven't worn any make up since having it. However as a beginner in this situation I decided to have my usual pamper time I discussed with a beautician who also has it and said that the only way she manages is by using waterproof eye products. And this week I got a few waterproof eye products.
And I can't wait to really have a bit of fun with them. My first thing to test is eyeshadow base as I also have been having sweaty eyelids and I want to be able to wear eye makeup without it slipping off! Who can relate?
So over the next few days I will be playing with just the eye primer. I will be doing a review on Just the primer and how it copes with the humidity of the UK.
Love and Peace
Me I love make up and fashion and so to finish of any look you mewwd to have your nails so to be added to my repitior of things I do is nail wraps by Jamberry.
having the ability to help women feel good because they look good is part of my job and I love it.
So you see I do this as my job. I love it. What do you do? Do you love it? Because you see if you don't love what you do then whats the point of doing it? Yes going to a 9-5 job or a shift job pays the bills. It isn't the end be to end all. Knowing what you love and being able to do it as your job isn't that the best feeling?
If you want to know more about Jamberry or Younique then don't hesitate to contact me.
Love and Peace
It comes in a beautiful box.
I had also said at the beginning of August that there will be a book review. I am so sorry that I haven't had time. I will be doing one soon.
There will be no photos of me for a few weeks. I am not able to wash due to only having cold water right now so feel yuck. Can't wait till the wet room and central heating are completed.
I am a younique presenter yet I love trying different makeup and skin care before letting my little girl have the things that I don't need or want so my next few blogs will be about the things that I got from my June parcel.
I used my younique kit to get this look. First I did my eyebrows as this is an important starting point due to the fact that they frame your face and others can read your facial expressions. Then I did a simple eye look using my bronzer and the amazing 3D+ lashes mascara and a blue eyeliner just to make my eyes stand out. I then used my cream foundation in valour all over my face starting by my nose and thinning out at the frame of my face then using my bronzer again to warm up my face. I did this by starting on my cheeks going up onto my forehead then down onto my jaw making sure that I blended underneath to ensure that there was no line between my face and my neck. Finishing off with lipliner and my lipstick called vain.
The afternoon was spent chilling out and planning my week ahead before spending the evening relaxing with the family
I hope you like the changes I have done to the blog.
The biggest two changes are the fact I have got a Domain for my blog and the name change. Sweetestmoondustsstyle
Now I'm looking to add my Younique store to my place so that if I mention it when doing a blog there's access to my store through a button rather than a link. However, for now, I will just add the link. Younique By Sweetestmoondust like that one. I am seriously looking at how to do that as I love #Makeup #Fashion and #Books and want to incorporate it all into here rather than having to spread my posts.
love for now
The last few days have been a bit of a challenge as there has been a family bereavement, however we must move on because dwelling on the past is not a good idea.
As the world changes daily its not worth it. So with this in mind I need to change my daily routine so that I can concentrate on what is necessary and walk away from the things that are holding me back...
I love writing my blog and yes I know sometimes it's a bit boring. My life is just average. I don't care though, I have cerebral palsy and clinical depression along with other problems, there are not many blogs about it.
I am still a woman, wife and mother and again these issues are not covered much while being disabled. There are many fantastic blogs that cover make up and clothes and some disabilities.
To combine everything though there are not many. Especially motherhood while being disabled. So if I am quiet for a few days or weeks it is because I am having a bit of a challenge but I will be back.
For my readers I am very grateful for your patience with what and when each post is completed. I promise to try to get more done on a regular basis however if things that out of my control arise then please be patient for the next post.
I know this post is a bit serious about the topic however things need to be said before I move to the next level in this blog.
So the kids are going back to school next week back here in the UK and summer has been really gorgeous, so although I planned to wear make up I found that I sweated loads on my face so decided just wear a #Younique #LipBonBon and a mascara, with a touch of foundation by #Benefit #HelloFlawlessHoney .
Which is why I didn't blog as much about make up as I had planned. Plus I had been away so didn't want to take too much with me.
So as soon as the kids go back it's almost autumn so I began changing my seasonal make up. I do this so that my skin stays warm looking despite having an English Rose skin tone,which is pale and goes pink but looks washed out in winter. So in my next blog I will have the photos of what my autumn makeup is. Over the next few months #Younique is brining out some new products that i totally will get but right now I am still using products that i have had for a long time in my kit.
Yes I know I should change them regularly due to the possibility of infections, but just like every person I have held on to some of my favourites. One thing I have done is got rid of the foundation that I was using as it was perfect for summer and swapped it out for the autumn and winter one I use although I will be getting a new one from #Younique.
I have seen #Lisa Potter Dixon latest video which she shows how to do a #CopperSmokeyEye. It's completely stunning and wanted to use that as the basis of my autumn look that can be used continually using similar tones.
More blogs soon on this.
I have been using #Younique for a while now and really love the products. As a White Status Presenter I started with the kit which is totally awesome
