We’re out here looking for the tips to ease you up this Saturday as you make your way around whichever city you’re in, around the world. With all this masked up action, we thought it’d be good for the ladies who are devoted to staying LIT when it comes to beauty, to get a tip or two on minimalist beauty hacks that could keep the fire burning all through COVID-19… so here goes.
THE MASCARA, HIGHLIGHTER, TINT HACK.
If you’re heading out the door and need a quick spruce up after the hair’s been pulled back and all that, we recommend this quick hack!
- Grab a gentle mascara that won’t irritate your eyes. Our favourite is the L’oreal Voluminous Mascara.
- You’ll need a good highlighter that guarantees AM-PM glow.
- When it comes to those lips, we suggest something that looks super natural but subliminally sexy – maybe something in a pale blush.
- You then tap the highlighter over your brow bones, cheek bones, bridge of your nose, Cupid’s bow, chin, and the inner corners of your eyes. Blend well! Then top it off with that voluminous mascara and your choice of lip colour. You’re all set!
The Headscarf Hack.
When it comes to hair, we all know that most women fuss the most over this aspect of their lives. For some, protective hairstyles are the only option that ensures lowered anxiety. With that in mind, we’d like to suggest the use of beautiful headscarves this Covid-19 period. Headscarves do not have to cost you an arm and a leg. Grab those beautifully patterned, silky scarves if you’d like to catch the eyes and attention of onlookers, but cotton wraps work well too. Check out a few tying and styling options that are equally beautiful, and easy to accomplish.
No Public Parties or Fetes Yet In Trinidad and Tobago. PM Makes It Clear.
Trinbagonians and those visiting the country will have to wait a while longer for entertainment in the form of parties and fetes. The country’s Prime Minister, Dr. Keith Rowley made the assertion this afternoon as he spoke to the nation during a public health briefing.
The government will meet in the parliament on Wednesday to dissolve the State of Emergency, however the country’s leader made it abundantly clear that parties, fetes or any similar entertainment activities remains prohibited by law.
The country’s beaches and other water courses will also remain closed to public access. The Prime Minister said, “I’ve been hearing about parties and I am appealing to law enforcement to let the full weight of the law to come against those who are undermining the law.”
The PM said he has been hearing persons making their homes party zones on a nightly bases, and argued that these people are not concerned about the deaths, tired hospital staff and others who are being negatively impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. “We are in a desperate situation. Don’t let it become more desperate and look for someone to blame,” he argued.
Dr. Rowley said that a lot of what is happening in Trinidad and Tobago now, has to do with personal responsibility. “We will not open up further, but we also will not roll back into a cocoon,” he said, in the same breath urging the population to be responsible in their actions.
Some 600,000 people in Trinidad and Tobago remain unvaccinated. Five children are now warded in the ICU at hospital, battling Covid-19.
Loving the Skin You’re In – Like for Real This Time. Have You Been Here?
My legs have always been a lighter shade than the rest of my body. They’ve been hidden, covered up from the judgement of others. Strawberry legs. An array of tiny dark-brown freckles mapping the distance between my knees and ankles.
My shade – too light to be considered brown. Too yellow to be classed as a ‘redz’
‘White Lady’ – The term my father’s family used to address me by as a young child.
My skin – the fairest on my immediate family tree.
“How your skin that colour girl?”
“Who you get that complexion from?”
“You sure them is your parents?”
I’ve heard it all.
I grew up with my complexion being my greatest insecurity. How was I to accept myself if I had no clue of who or what I was? This struggle continued well into my teens. I was uncomfortable changing in front of others, felt that my skin was something to hide – something to be ashamed of.
Then I entered the world of work and saw women of different shades , hues and ethnicities owning their skin, dressed for success and standing tall. Legs carrying knee-length power suits – and I wanted to be one of them.
What I came to understand was that it was more than just wearing the clothes. It was a confidence that I had to grow and work towards; The kind of confidence that accepts every feature, every blemish, every scar and still calls it beautiful. That’s the kind of courage it takes to be able to stand tall in shorts, in swim suits and simply bare in front of the mirror.
My skin tells a story of triumph, of growth and of strength. And I am proud of it.
I think that’s why I was so drawn to Bona Fide Body by Lee’s skincare line.
Her products are dedicated to helping women fall in love with their skin all over again.
From the Turmeric Body Polish to the Rose Infused Body Oil – each a symbol of care. I adore my skin more and more with each use.
This self care journey isn’t a ‘one and done’ thing but it’s a process over time and by giving it the best care and attention, I’m able to love the skin that I’m in , for real, this time.
