From INSANITY to beauty…
I hope you are not expecting a deep, fulfilling conversation about finding beauty in madness.
Because I really just wanted to talk about makeup. :)
After an Insanity workout, I look like poo…
According to my calorie-counting watch, after 42 minutes of Insanity’s Plyo workout, I burned 647 calories.
I believe this very little, but, hey, whatever I can get, right?
Not important! The point of this post is to show you how I get pretty! We haven’t talked about beauty in a while, and diet and fitness have become depressing topics.
After my shower, during which I shaved my legs (but we’ll get to this later), I have to follow a certain routine.
First, I take care of my skin. Deodorant (always necessary), pimple cream, moisturizer and lotion. Usually, I would wear sun screen with a higher SPF, but we’re out, and I refuse to waste the tanning lotion.
And then I need to pick out my outfit!
The skirt is the reason I shaved my legs. It is TOO hot to wear pants or long skirts, all of which I own are black.
I don’t need confidence to walk around in clothes that show off my legs. Apparently, I just need 100 degree weather sans nice breezes and moisture of any kind.
Next, I need to do my hair, which is probably the most annoying thing to do in this heat.
Chemical 1: Lotion for my hair to reduce split ends due to the use of hot air styling tools and free radicals.
Chemical 2: Fine hair protections spray to avoid the dry cracky feeling that comes along with the use of hot air styling tools and free radicals. It’s a shine spray, too.
Chemical 3: Without some gel to control the weirdness that is my hair, it will frizz like a crazy person.
I am not loyal to the Pantene Pro-V brand, but they provide a lot of coupons. Generally, I get the best deal on Pantene products.
I always pull my hair up in a clip before it completely dries to set a pretty wave.
Makeup is next! My usual routine is some moisturizing foundation… and glasses. However, I thought I show you my simple look for day.
My Day Look routine includes, light cream foundation, under eye concealer, soft face powder and peach blush.
If I’m feeling frisky, I’ll put contacts in and play up my eyes with green highlighting eye shadow and some mascara. Eyeliner did not happen today. Too harsh.
And voila! From INSANITY to beauty…
The finished product!
How do you do a simple day look?
What are you doing for the holiday?
