Wife, Mama to 5 kids-ages 3-8, business owner, YouTuber, Blogger, Licensed Esthetician, and Birth Doula! I love coaching and empowering women through the Birth experience. We are building a farm with our five kids in order to help them learn the value of work and to ground ourselves from the busyness of the world! On my blog and various channels, we also talk about Anxiety and PPD, and I am passionate about helping others not feel alone in their journey! Thanks for being here, I love getting to know you!
One thing we have noticed is that even our young kids can feel the happiness that service brings! There is a skip in their step after they have helped someone else’s day go better. They are joyful and even kinder toward each other. Each act of service has made them want to do it again!
Service can be small:
-Look for doors to hold.
-Smile and wave at the elderly.
-Give a compliment or say what you appreciate about somebody.
-Look for kids who aren’t being included and include them.
-Find little moments of service with your siblings and others.
I’ve found that when I verbally recognize the act of service, it’s likely to happen more often. Such as, “I noticed you did that for ___. That was so kind of you, thank you!”
Studies show that service can even improve kids’ leadership skills, helps them be better citizens, combats depression, and can increases self confidence.
We feel more bonded as a family after serving together.
I FINALLY tried this foundation that has inundated my instagram and Facebook ads! Hahahaha. The products are linked below, and the video is as well!!!:)
IL MAKIAGE FOUNDATION REVIEW
I took the quiz online. And it says it’s the most reviewed foundation online. I got the shade 105. I was worried that I got it a little bit too dark but it is pretty darn close to my skin color. I’m just shocked. I took the quiz and wasn’t positive that it would come out at my shade, but it did. It’s crazy! It is super lightweight, which I love.
I’m not a huge foundation wearer. I will say, leading up to my 30’s I started to wear it a little more, but still not a lot. Now, into my 30’s I find myself wearing it more. Not always, but more for sure.
After putting it on you can still see skin texture. Which is great and totally normal. On the ads you see people be like, feels like skin…but no, it actually does. It’s insane. They also sent a mystery gift which was an ink liner. And it was AMAZING. I totally geeked out on it. Generally when my eyelash extensions are really full I don’t put on liquid liner or anything like that, but this one is a water base and was totally ok. I just don’t feel like when they are super full I need liner, but I really wanted to try it out and I’m so glad that I did.
Ok, let’s talk about some brow, contour, bronzer and blush. I feel like we’ve got a pretty solid base and I’m loving the wing layer from the liner.
Ok, let’s talk about the Primrose Anastasia Beverly Hills palette. I love it so much, but I’m SO bummed because something happened and it shattered and powder went everywhere! If you’ve had this happen, you KNOW!!!!! Hahaha.
What do you say we warm things up in here? First, contour…Makeup by Mario contour and my Patrick Ta brush. Let’s see how it did on the foundation. It feels so good. I also added a bronzer and a blush. Glow Wish from Huda Beauty…it melts really well into your skin, has a really beautiful color…I got Berry Juicy. This is number three. That blush is SO GOOD. The Glow Wish Bronzer. I used the Sephora number 50 Pro Powder.
So this bronzer pulls just a little bit orange. I would say that it does a really good job at warming up the face. I also used the Charlotte Tilbury beauty light wand.
Okay, another product that I’m really liking, that I think you guys will like, is the One/Size Preserve the Serve. The one thing I don’t like is it sometimes leaks from the sprayer. Just a little bit frustrating but it’s fine and smells good! There are other ones that have a finer mist but this is fine, too!
On to brows! I actually got my brows laminated several weeks ago, and I loved it! It was awesome because my eyebrow hairs grow downward. So having them go up for a change, I was like, “Oh, OH, they can do that?!” It was kind of nice. I think I need to get it done again. I wonder if I keep doing it if I can train my brows to grow up. It’s really a family thing. They just go straight down! Haha! But the lamination made it feel like I had more brows, which I really liked. I used the Charlotte Tilbury legendary brows to push those brows on up!
I took some Pillow Talk Lip Cheat in the shade medium, which is a little bit darker for the lip liner, and used the YSL lipstick for my lips!
OK, recap time! IL Makiage, where have you been?! I mean, they’ve been there, in my Instagram and Facebook ads for a long time, but I just haven’t ordered any until now and I apologize for that. I’m sorry. Actually, I was missing out so I apologize to myself! Hahaha. Love this foundation so far. It is lightweight, it’s buildable, it’s beautiful. The shade matched my skin, and to be honest I’m still a little bit taken back by it, because how can an online quiz get it so right on!?!? Magic! The liquid liner was amazing too. I just put it on for the first time so I don’t know how it wears or anything like that but the application, putting everything on top top of it…it’s awesome! If you’ve tried it, I would love to hear your thoughts! Hope you are having a great day!♡
