Many of you have probably noticed that 2020 so far has been quite a challenging year. While everyone was anticipating this to be the greatest year yet, starting the new decade with a lot of optimism, the opposite seemed to be true overall.
On the grand scale, the world is definitely feeling it: everything from the Australian fires to the Coronavirus to political turmoil, and that’s just in January alone. And now Mercury is going into retrograde. That probably won’t make things any easier.
So, instead of fighting something we don’t have control over, we decided to accept it and work with what we have. The best way to deal with these challenges and our own personal challenges is to take care of our own well-being. So, instead of suffering, let’s enjoy the new year with a refreshing beauty routine. Treat yourself like royalty in 2020 and shake off those 2020 blues.
Sand & Sky Australian Emu Apple Products
While you’re laying in a nice, relaxing bath with Epsom salt, try to put on the Sand & Sky Australian Emu Apple Super Bounce Mask which will make your skin glow. This mask hydrates, brightens, and protects while making your skin more soft and plump. This mask has antioxidants and Kakadu plum, which is one of the best sources of vitamin C, to revitalize your skin. The addition of 5 different types of hyaluronic acid in this mask will make your skin appear more plump and moist. Plus, it’s easy to use. Put the mask on your clean skin for 10 minutes and just rinse it off with warm water when you are done. It’s a trustworthy choice with a 4.8/5 star review.
Once your face is dry, apply 4 drops of the Sand & Sky Australian Emu Apple Dreamy Glow Drops which will not only illuminate your skin but will also hydrate it. Be sure to shake the oil well and massage it in circular motions into your skin. It locks in moisture and allows your skin to glow and shine.
BH Cosmetics Crystal Zodiac Collection
After your skincare routine is complete, get ready to enter the Mercury Retrograde period in style. Grab the Crystal Zodiac collection from BH Cosmetics. This set includes an eyeshadow and highlighter palette with 25 colors, matching matte and shimmer finishes, and brushes with handles inspired by energizing crystals. There are 12 brushes, one to represent each sign of the zodiac, and, as stated above, each is inspired by energizing crystals. This collection is found exclusively in Ulta.
As for the eyeshadow colors in the collection, each is also named after an energizing crystal. So, grab the color named after your birth stone, whether that be Jade, Tiger’s Eye, Amber, or another and apply it in combination with one of the matte matching counterparts to create a strong and powerful eye makeup look. This should give you the confidence to take on this wild ride that is 2020.
