Hello Beautiful!

It’s Monday and I am gearing up for my first makeup/makeover tip or trick.  I’ve been pondering all weekend what to write for my first post.  I’ve asked friends, I’ve thought about tips I give clients while they are in my chair and I’ve thought about the questions I had when I first dusted off my brushes to get started as a makeup artist.  I even noticed that as I put on my makeup I am thinking about how to break it down and show it in a vlog or a post.  I used to think in FaceBook statuses and now I narrate my activities in my head as blog posts 🙂

So, without further ado, I am going to share the BIGGEST tip I know for looking your best (and surprisingly, it has NOTHING to do with makeup)!  All right.  Here it is…

Drink water!  When you are hydrated your skin is clearer, brighter and plumper making it a great base for makeup or, heck, you’ll feel so great you can go without.

How much water should you drink?  Well, that’s up to you.  If you already are a water drinker, good job!  But a lot of us, nowadays, are fuelled by coffee, sodas and juice and forego the H2O for one of these.  Don’t worry if you do, just make sure you have an extra glass of water to counterbalance the caffeine or sugar.  Personally, to make sure I’m drinking my water I have a fun, refillable, double-walled 16oz cups with a lid and straw that I sip on and refill it all day. And if you want to make it interesting, add a slice or two of lemon (even better, slice the lemon and freeze them to it not only does it add flavour, it keeps it cold!).

So there you have it!  Water!

Thanks for stopping by and have a beautiful day!
