Each day unfolds as something completely different from the next however a few things stay the same. One of those things is how I look (for the most part) and the other is my beauty and style routine. My life tends to follow the less is more approach with beauty, style and even home decor. Today I am teaming up with Lucky to share with you my all-natural style secrets.
When it comes to skin care, the past few years I've really scaled back my operations. I like to keep my face as fresh as possible. I had the opportunity to try out the new Seventh Generation boosts in firming that is supposed to help with strengthening and toning in partnership with this campaign. I used the firming serum for a good 3-4 days and I loved it! It's a natural skin serum with a heavenly mint scent and none of the ingredients sent me researching what they might be. This is perfect to mix in with any Seventh Generation lotion or cleanser to get your day going. The next few items are even more simple than this, I use an all over light liquid foundation to even things out and then I polish my look off with my favorite lipstick of the season. My less is more mantra completed this look above for my beauty as well as my personal style.
When I think about my personal style I feel like I have figured out a little trick. I like to wear comfortable clothing that doesn't make me look frumpy and still feel good. My trick is to wear something that you aren't going to want to rip off after an hour. Find good fabrics that work with your body. Cotton, polyester and acrylic that feel soft to your skin are my favorites. When you can machine wash any of those mentioned you're also ahead of the game. Lately I've been pairing a contrasting top with a flowy skirt almost everyday as I feel good wearing it. I then add 1 or 2 accessories and my favorite shoes.
Lastly, we cannot forget the hair! This will be quick. I have naturally curly hair and I've found the more I add to it, the more it does what I don't want it to do. Lately I've just been letting it do what it wants and it seems to like it. Each day I typically add 1 or 2 pumps of argan oil and blend it through. I like to wear my hair in a side bun or a top bun to complete my look. My hair takes me less than 5 minutes to do!
I hope my less is more mantra will inspire you to make your routine a little less cumbersome. What are some of your all-natural style secrets? Share them below! ... and on social networks with hashtag #allnaturalstylesecrets
