I don't know about you, but when I look good on the outside I actually feel better on the inside. I truly do believe that the number one task on any 'how to beat the blues' list should be to get up, get showered and get dressed.
Back when I was in the absolute depths of "Mama Pyjama Syndrome", I spent my days wearing pyjamas with my hair in a top knot looking like I hadn't showered in weeks. I'd given up caring about my appearance, and I truly believe that is something that heavily impacted on my emotional state.
I remember talking to a friend about it all, and her telling me that the one thing she forced herself to do every day as a stay-at-home mum was to get up, get dressed, and do her hair and makeup. Even if she was just sitting around home for the day. Why? Well because it made her feel better about herself. It's all about self care and self love - which then of course becomes self worth. It's very good advice, and certainly some that I am going to continue to remind myself every morning now that I am no longer working.
So what a perfect time to review the Australian Mineral Makeup products from Glam Affair! Their range is 100% free from nasties and contains the highest quality Australian minerals so it's safe to use on all skin types.
I'm a big fan of the 'natural look' so I am loving how light weight the makeup is. It's not heavy on your skin like other brands; it's breathable and gives your skin a beautiful, light glow.
However, the great thing is, if you do want to go for a more glamorous look you can easily build it up to make it really pop. A little bit goes a really long way, and despite using mine every day the jar still looks like it's never been used! I've found it to be really long lasting, and able to hold up even after a workout or on these hot summer days we've been having.
I'd highly recommend the Glam Affair products, and encourage you to check out their full range. They also hold a variety of makeup workshops across Australia that are great for busy mums of all ages who want to learn how to create an easy, quick go-to look for work, event makeup, or every day. In fact, I have five vouchers to give away to a Glam Affair 3 hour makeup tutorial in either Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney or Gold Coast. If you'd like to win one head over to the Win Stuff page and comment on the Glam Affair post!
