Mauve-ing Along

I woke up this morning and immediately noticed something was off. So rather than sit around and over-analyze (although I did let that get the best of me for a few minutes), I decided there was no point in wasting energy or time on something that I have no control over. Whether something is or isn’t wrong, it will work itself out how it’s supposed to.

Doing this is a lot easier said than done, especially for me, usually. But today I won. Today, I listened to my own advice. I began my morning with a Melissa Wood Health workout, listened to a motivational podcast, and took time on myself while getting ready. It sounds strange, but getting ready is half the battle for me sometimes. When I’m down or under the weather, it’s a serious mission…but after allowing some time for self-care and self-love, I got going!

Today, I went with more of a fall vibe for makeup. I wanted something that looked the way I felt and wanted to feel. I used pink, mauve, and gold all over. Why those colors? Pink stands for sweet, nice, playful, cute, romantic, charming, feminine, and tenderness. Mauve is the hue of decadence, youth, and femininity, evoking feelings of purity and devotion, with the moodiness of a deeper purple. Finally, gold is cousin to yellow and brown, and is also associated with illumination, love, compassion, courage, passion, magic, and wisdom.

This isn’t your typical beauty post, I know. But sometimes, doing the silliest of things can make you feel a whole lot better. For me, today, it was makeup. I would love to hear some of the weird/funny things you do to help boost your mood! Leave a comment below or follow me on Instagram (@lauraejansen) and chat with me there!

Until next time…stay golden!

MOTD: Sunrise Eyes

Today I woke up as the sun was coming up and I was in awe of how beautiful it was! I’m rarely up before or with it, so this was huge! The yellow, orange, peach, and pinks peering over the mountain was simply stunning though. It inspired me to create a beauty look with the colors, so that is how I came up with ‘sunrise eyes’ for today. I’ve linked all of the products below for you to shop too 🙂

Makeup on the Run

Mornings and I don’t typically go well together. I wish they did because I love getting as much done before work as I can. However, some days it just doesn’t happen…and today was one of those days. I literally woke up with ten minutes to throw myself together and leave for work. Naturally, I figured I’d shoot a video of my quick 4.5 minute routine to wake my face up using some of my favorite products!

A few weeks ago, I received two new products to try out. The first product I received is the Skederm Tears Drop Capsule Moisturizer. I’m always skeptical about moisturizers because I’ve honstly always thought it to be a bit of a scam since most of them end up assisting in my breakouts. This isn’t a thick and heavy cream that clogs your pores though. It’s more of a gel-like texture that lightly covers the skin, still allowing it to breathe…not to mention it smells SO good! The second product was the Dualist Matte & Illuminating Concealer by Wander Beauty. What I really love about this, other than the fact that supermodel Erin Heatheron uses it, is it has both a heavier and lighter side. The matte side is great for really covering up those pesky pimples, whereas the illuminating side adds a light coverage and gives a little extra glow!

I know I say it often, but I am literally obsessed with both of these products. They aren’t 100% natural, which I typically like more, but as long as it doesn’t HURT my skin, then I’m a happy camper! So check out the full video below to see the finished product!

Until next time…stay golden!

Credo Beauty

Hello, my beauties!

If you’re anything like me, keeping a fresh and youthful look is very important. Living in LA, there is a crazy amount of pollution and toxins in the air that our skin absorbs daily. Since I’m not one that feels botox or any other chemical being injected into my face is necessary at this point in my life, I go the natural route. Well, as natural as I can.

Yesterday, I attended a blogger brunch at Credo Beauty, and it was amazing! They had fonuts (the coconut one was literally the best thing I’ve ever eaten), cold-pressed juices from Juice Served Here, flower crowns, and more. As I looked around, I realized every single product in there is natural and plant-based, which I love! While the price point is a bit higher, the quality is also higher and totally worth it. There are tons of different brands, but one of my new favorites is Tata Harper. I took home a few face mask samples, and after using the Purifying Mask last night, I’m hooked. This is why people pick up multiple jobs…right?

If you haven’t been to Credo Beauty yet, you should absolutely go! Pick up some samples or even go in for one of their services. I promise you’ll fall in love!

Until next time…stay golden
