To have a brash attitude is to be assertive, confident, bold, audacious, and daring.
For one person, being brash might be to try a color or product that they wouldn’t normally think of using. For someone else, it might mean super-bold, dramatic or in-your-face type make-up look. Both are wonderful and should be encouraged!
I’ve dealt with having uber-sensitive skin my entire life so trying new things can be daunting. I’ve reacted to products that are baby-safe. Soaps and bubble baths, mascaras and lip balms, you name it, I can probably tell you that I’ve had a reaction to it! Having sensitive skin does not mean that you have to miss out on amazing products, you just have to be a little more cautious about the products that you use. I read the ingredients labels and I test EVERYTHING on my wrist before it touches anywhere else on my body or face. Because really, there is nothing worse than submerging yourself in a bubble bath only to suddenly fee the onset of a head to toe allergic reaction. Trust me, it sucks! Sensitive does not have to mean BORING!
A few years ago I had started to replace all of my skincare and make-up products with cruelty-free brands. Let me tell you, there are a LOT of great bands out there that are cruelty-free (and often vegan) making awesome products. If you want to more about cruelty-free brands, check out some of the following sites: Leaping Bunny, NAVS, Logical Harmony, Paula’s Choice. There are many more, but if you’re curious, they are good places to start!
Just because I’m no longer in my 20s doesn’t mean that I stopped being obsessed with make-up! In fact, I’m more likely to experiment with products / colors and techniques now than I did when I was younger! When I was younger, I lived in black liquid eyeliner and red lipstick, and while I still love the look, I know that there is so much MORE out there! New skin concerns have arisen, like fine lines and wrinkles and the occasional “light streak” popping through my hair dye (haha). But that won’t stop me from having fun with make-up! And it shouldn’t stop you!
