make up or not

To makeup or not to makeup? It’s totally up to you! Our relationship to makeup is personal – it can change over time or stay consistent for decades. Some women prefer neutrals, while others experiment with vibrant colours. Our makeup routine can reflect how we are feeling, be used to change how we feel or be an outlet for creativity. You can love wearing makeup daily or only on special occasions – either way, we want you to LOVE your skin, how it feels and how it looks in the mirror. We celebrate skin with makeup on it, and skin without. We want you to feel great when you are all made up for an event, and when you are bare-faced and casually dressed. We love bright lipstick with old jeans, and cocktail dresses with barely-there makeup. In our world – anything goes. look #1: BEAUTY This could be for home only, a NYE party or heading off to yoga. It’s a guaranteed natural glow!

treat your eyes

We all want shiny bright eyes, whites that are super white and not a touch of redness. Tiredness, too much time staring at screens and pollution or wind can make our eyes red and scratchy. As women, another big factor is what we put on our eyes. It can all look okay in the mirror – but who knows the feeling of checking your reflection later in a mirror and seeing those puffy, sore eyes staring back? Luckily – in 2019, there’s a solution! People talk a lot about detoxing from toxins and chemicals, and makeup is so important. Especially the eyes. If you feel your eyes reacting to eyeshadow and stinging when you wear your favourite mascara, it’s a sign that you need to switch to natural makeup. Our eyes tell a lot about our body, so let’s listen to what the information we are giving us…

how to start a beauty detox

Kalinda grew up in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and was raised in a bilingual and bicultural home. Throughout her career in television and makeup, Kalinda developed a profound understanding of the beauty industry, and in 2014 she established a blog to share her advice and know-how with readers from around the globe. “At this point, I’m sure you’re familiar with the word ‘detox’. This concept, which has gained immense popularity in recent years, invites us to clean some part of our lives. It can refer to food, house cleaning products, or any of our body systems. And although each detox is different, in general, they all refer to the same idea: stop consuming certain ingredients or substances in order to give our body a rest and live a healthier life. That’s what I want to talk about today.
