Nothing changes if nothing changes

The only thing going forward will be the hands of the clock, tick tock. The dates on the calendar, turn the page, another day, another month. Before you know it, another year has gone by. Summer may be coming to an end but it’s not time to sing Auld Lang Syne just yet. Start today, everyday is a new beginning. What are you doing right now to realize your dreams? Life is too short to be treading water, stuck in the same spot and barely staying afloat. What did you want to be when you were younger? Before doctor’s appointments and past due notices got in the way. Reawaken the dreamer in you and start heading in that direction. 

I have always wanted to a write a book and here I am each day taking notes, planning story outlines and jotting down whatever comes to mind. Words become sentences, sentences become paragraphs, and before you know it… Look out for that bestseller! 

It’s never to late to take a course, learn a new skill. Start somewhere. Put your best foot forward, put on your new lip, shop here https://darksecretscosmetics.com/shop/

It’s a new day, a new you. Make that change.

Lot in life

The gene pool is like a lottery. Some of us hit the jackpot. Some of us came close with four to five winning numbers.
Some of us got a small payout with three numbers but we are still thankful. Some of us didn’t fair too well with only
one or two numbers depending on the eyes of the beholder. Yes, beauty is subjective but there are always those who
seem to have won big when it comes to looks. No matter what numbers you were dealt in life in the appearance
department, just as money seems to disappear in the blink of an eye, beauty maybe slower but surely will fade away.
Outer beauty fades. Inner beauty lasts a lifetime. When you are beautiful from the inside out, you will always have
the winning hand. You will light up a room as you enter it, you will always be thought of and remembered fondly.
You will leave an indelible mark in the hearts of those whose lives you have touched. 

So here is to a lifetime of beauty. Aim to be beautiful, both inside and out. It is always nice to work on our outward
appearance and apply makeup to enhance our features. The right lipstick does just that. We all want to feel beautiful
as we go out into the world, it is after all, your face that most people will see first. Whereas inner beauty is an energy
they can feel. Inner beauty is like a shining light, a candle in a blackout that provides such comfort and peace.
Being a light from within will help to erase some of the darkness in this world. You can see a light from miles away
in the dark, you have to be at close range to notice outer beauty. Inner beauty can be felt and always cherished,
outer beauty can only be seen and soon forgotten once the next set of lucky numbers comes along. So work on
being that light from within.

You are beautiful, shine bright.

Don’t like your pout, don’t throw it out!

You tested out a new lipstick at the beauty counter. It looked great under the mirror lights,
the mirror that magically makes you appear to be ten pounds thinner too, but once you get
home you’re just not loving the colour as much. Here are 3 quick tips to make that
lipstick work for you. 

1. Blend Away

If a lipstick colour is too dark or too light and doesn’t compliment your skin tone,
try blending two different colours to get the perfect look. 

2. Gloss it Out

Add a very light coat of lipstick with a touch of clear lip gloss over the top.
Voila! A whole new look.

3. Line those lips

Find the right lip liner, the right lip liner can change the effect off a lipstick.
Try a liner that is one shade lighter or darker than the lipstick, or one shade
darker than your natural lip colour. You can add more or less lip liner and
then blend it with the lipstick to create a look that works for you.

At Dark Secrets Cosmetics we have lipsticks to suit every skin tone.
Try one out today, you won’t regret your purchase.

Five top tips for luscious lips!

Once you have found the perfect shade of lipstick, you have to take care of your lips.
Your lipstick will glide on smoothly, enhancing your natural beauty and you are
sure to be a stand out if you follow these tips for luscious lips.

5. Exfoliate the lips. 

You can treat your lips with products right from your kitchen cupboard.
All you need is sugar, a natural exfoliant and olive oil or coconut oil to add
moisture. Mix an equal amount of sugar with olive oil or coconut oil, about
a heaped teaspoon will be just the right amount. Gently rub it in on the lips
using circular motions to get rid of dead skin cells, rinse with water and
gently pat try. 

4. Kiss

Pucker up and put those lips to use. Kiss your partner, peck a friend or family
member, grab your kids and give them a big old smooch. Kiss your dog.
Affection is good for the soul.

3. Smile

Don’t worry, be happy. Smile at your colleagues, smile at a stranger today,
you never know how you could brighten someone’s day. 

2. Beauty sleep

Don’t forget your beauty sleep. Life can get hectic but a good night’s rest
helps skin cells repair and regenerate.

1. Wear Dark Secrets Cosmetics lipstick! 

Once those lips are taken care of, you have the perfect base for your new
Dark Secrets Cosmetics lipstick.

Summer Glow

As Summer is fast approaching, bringing on warmer weather and more daylight hours don’t forget to look up.
Now I don’t mean look directly at the Sun! We are so laser focused on looking down at our phones, just take
a moment to look up and look around you. Really, there are health benefits to it. Your body produces
vitamin D when exposed to sunlight. Going for a brisk walk can boost your mood, and help trim that waistline!

Just getting outside sometimes can be a stress reliever, then you won’t need as much make up to achieve that
summer glow. Breathe in some fresh air, look around, you may begin to marvel at mother nature. The trees
that were so dull and scant now full and lush with green foliage, the colorful array of spring flowers in full
bloom, the little red robin that just learned how to fly; it’s small but perfectly formed wings dancing in the
daylight. Spend some time in the great outdoors this summer.

See the beauty in nature and see the beauty in you.
