Do I still buy lipsticks?💄😷

With high unemployment and the fear of recession in the horizon, we are more aware of each item on the shopping list and purchasing any luxury item is postponed for later time in the future.

As consumers any somber news about our economy directly effects our plans for purchasing a house,a new car, or our future plans to travel.

When we faced the 2008 recession, our economy suffered record declines in sales, except for the cosmetic industry that enjoyed a 5.3% rise.

The truth is when we know spending our money on luxury items during a recession is a mistake, we turn to small luxury items that immediately help us feel, and look our best. Holding a shinny lipstick in the palm of our hand, puts a smile on our face, and a beautiful shade on our lips.

Now that we are facing another recession, because of covid-19 keeping ourselves and our love ones healthy is our main concern. Wearing a mask to stop transmission of the virus is necessary and most businesses require wearing it. This worries me, since our chance of enjoying the purchase of lipstick now becomes senseless!

Just a few days ago before leaving my car to head to the grocery store as usual I checked my make up and put on some lipstick, and right after that I pulled my mask over my mouth. Just then I realized who is going to see my face & notice my new shade of rouge coco on my masked face ?

Don’t get me wrong wearing makeup is my choice, since I like to feel looking my best at any time, but to realize wearing makeup is not necessary when out and about is depressing.

What else masks are hiding ? Smiles!!! Again as I was busy with my stressing to keep distancing and going the right direction in the grocery aisle, I was smiling to fellow shoppers and employees, but soon realized my smile was masked and my voice was muffled.

We should wear masks to keep everyone safe, but we seriously need to come up with a hand signal to tell others we are sending them a smile!!🖖

Face Mists for dewy glow

All mists hydrate skin,  tone skin, set makeup, act as a serum to nourish skin throughout the day, or even cool skin down.

 Mists help your moods If scented :

Certain scents can be effective against depression, anxiety, insomnia or exhaustion. Just make sure to read the ingredients list carefully. Some essential oils, such as cinnamon, can cause irritation or breakouts.

Mists help you look good :

Mists, can temporarily give you a dewy glow if your skin is feeling dried, and help set or refresh your makeup.

When your skin is dehydrated, its protective barrier gets weaker, which means collagen and elastin can break down faster, and also heat can cause oilier skin which can clog your pores setting you up for pimples.

What should we look for in a Mist:

If looking to add some extra moisture to your skin with a mist, look for one with hyaluronic acid. To calm irritated skin and ease redness look for Rose water and Aloe.
