from mum to daughter

I remember when I was a little girl and I used to watch my mum doing her makeup. I was amazed. I loved the colours, the powders and the sparkles. I can say that the person who started me on makeup was my mum. And I’m very thankful that the person I love the most is a connection to my passion When we are young, the moment we start using makeup is as important as the day we buy our first bra or our first pair of heels. We all remember the first time we applied liner and the fear we had of poking our eye. So what´s better than taking this step that connects us more as mother and daughter in a fun and relaxed way. That´s why I’m going to give you some tips to guide your daughter to a clean, conscious & curious beauty lifestyle. First of all, it is important to leave prohibitions aside. Since I was young, makeup has been a way of expression and I´m thankful that my mum …

love your foundation

Foundation, if you think about it, is a really interesting word we use for a makeup product! In the beauty bizz, it means the first layer of makeup you apply to your face, which you then layer with colour, powders, mascaras – all the fun thing! But foundation is the beginning… Celebrating mothers, women, daughters, sisters, grandmothers, godmothers, aunts this month, got us thinking about the foundations of these relationships. And mainly – it is love! In many ways, love is the bond we share in our relationships. This doesn’t mean however, that relationships aren’t also: challenging, upsetting, frustrating, disappointing, hard and sometimes – just really too much. The ups and downs we go through in our lives as we grow are all part of the process of being human. With family (the ones we are born into and the ones we find for ourselves), love brings us back. To gratitude, forgiveness, healing, second chances, care, hope and renewal. Above all else, if we can remember love as our foundation, it can get us through …

sharing the love of natural with my mum

When I was a young girl, I loved watching my mum do her daily beauty routine. Even back then she used natural ingredients to look after her skin. She slept with aloe vera on her face, exfoliated with sugar and honey and only used natural creams to moisturise. I think that’s when I started to love healthy skin! My mother was a nurse, but definitely an alternative one! She is passionate about natural health and she has always relied on homemade remedies. One of the traditions we still share together is to make and apply our natural homemade mask. This Mother’s Day, I’m happy to share our favourite recipe, it’s very easy!

mothers I love you

As Mother’s Day rolls around the globe, I can’t help thinking about the extraordinary role that mothers play in society. They grow tiny humans in their own bodies, birth these little creatures into the big wide world and teach the newborn humans about many things that make this place beautiful and also, at times, scary. A baby is raised with the help of a village, a family, a team, a neighbourhood, a relationship, a marriage, grandparents, siblings, fathers, mothers, and any combination of all or none of the above – but on Mother’s Day, let’s all think of one mother we know and acknowledge her journey.

What my mother taught me about beauty

Our mothers are most likely to be one of the most important influencers in our lives, if not the most important.  Their love is unconditional. They are our biggest supporters through absolutely everything, even if they’re no longer physically with us. Sometimes we don’t realise the true importance of our mothers until we have either lost them or when we become mothers ourselves and are able to fully comprehend the amount of love they have for their children. For most of us, our mums are also the most beautiful women in our lives.  We idolise them as little girls; watch them putting on creams or makeup, plucking their eyebrows, doing their hair. We are fascinated by our mother’s beauty regime and they are our very first window into the world of fashion and beauty. We might not always agree with the fashion and beauty decisions our mothers make, but there’s no doubt mums always have a huge influence on our own sense of beauty – both inside and out.  They are our champions, cheer leaders, the epitome …
