Making life happen in 2018 with Ecotools

Making life happen in 2018 with Ecotools

Hello loves!!

I hope your week is going great, I really do. I know most of us start every year with a few goals and things to get better, you know… people call them resolutions I believe? Trust me, I’m familiar with those because I make them every year and 2018 was no exception.

The problem is that, as life happens so fast, often times we tend to forget about the things on our list and before we know it another year went by without us making any major changes.

That’s why, this year I wanted to do things different. In 2018, I decided to make life happen by setting up monthly goals thanks to my Ecotools family, and January is all about finding my balance.

I truly hope this post helps. I believe I’m already doing great by taking one day at a time and making small changes.

Ambitious right? But not as hard as it sounds! Here’s what I’m doing:

  • I’ve found myself a hobby! Yes, I’m boxing once a week! I’ve always wanted to try it, and seriously, you have no idea how much of a stress reliever this class is. I LOVE IT! Also, these are the best to tie my hair without leaving any marks!

  • I’m eating waaaaay healthier and going to the gym at least 4 times a week. I’m just taking baby steps and trying not to be so hard on myself. I set daily goals that I try to accomplish and I think it works better for me. I really believe in taking baby steps. This way you don’t feel overwhelmed and you get to develop some will power little by little.

Side note: If you’re working out regularly and you don’t wash your hair every day, try out Batiste Dry Shampoo! It’s amazing and it smells like HEAVEN!

  • Another thing I started doing in 2018 to find my balance, has been to write a journal with G. Each day, we write down what we call a ‘highlight’. It’s so cute. I used to do this before, I called it a ‘Blessing Journal’. It’s a great way to look back at the end of every day and identify something good that happened that day. It helps you practice positivity and gratefulness and it only takes 5 minutes each day!!
  • Another thing that only takes 5 minutes these days, is my make up routine. It’s super easy and you should try it too. One of the things I consider important in order to find my personal balance is to look good and feel good, but at the same time I don’t like spending a lot of time thinking about it. So, I’ve developed a routine that works for me that you can try too! Here’s how I do it now and the brushes I can’t live without:

First, I apply my foundation. I use Bare Minerals and the Ecotools “Angled Foundation” brush. It makes your makeup last longer and because it’s angled, it’s really easy to reach every corner of your face without making a mess. I blend everything together with the total perfecting blender also by Ecotools.

Then, with the ‘Define Crease’ brush, I apply a little bit of eye shadow to add some color. Tip: If you are using two different eye shadow colors, the best brush to blend it with is the “Blurring” brush. I didn’t use it this time, but it’s amazing! I promise I will have a video tutorial coming soon πŸ™‚

Then I even out my eyebrows with the “Angled Liner” brush. This one is my favorite because for some reason I find it very hard to make my eyebrows look the same LOL… Until I started using this brush πŸ˜‰

With this foundation, and especially since I started applying it with the right tools, I don’t need to wear any kind of powder, so I just go straight to applying my blush with the Ecotools “Full Blush” make up brush.

And last but not least, I apply some mascara and lipstick! That’s how I get ready every morning… when I need to leave the apartment, because I work from home, so going out doesn’t happen every day. πŸ˜‰

I must add, that one of my favorite things about Ecotools’ brushes is that they have the name of the brush engraved. This is very useful when you are just starting to use make up brushes. It’s the best way to know right away which brush is right for what.

Tip: To keep your brushes clean and healthy, this is by far the best shampoo to clean them. The little tray makes the whole cleaning process very efficient too!

All of these items (and so may more!) are included inside a monthly box, available on Ecotools’ website. It’s only $60 and has SO MANY goodies! Get more details here. They have a new box with a new them coming up each month. That way we can all MAKE LIFE HAPPEN together in 2018 by taking small steps each month πŸ™‚

I’m so excited to be a part of the Ecotools family and I truly believe that we should start seeing our dreams while our eyes are open. It’s ok to have long term goals, don’t get me wrong, I have a million of those, but don’t get yourself caught up on things you haven’t lived yet.

Be here today, be aware of your right here and your right now.

Make life happen in 2018. Happy January!! Lets do this together.

XO,
Signature

    EcoTools has always had some of my favorite brushes. They are so soft and blend makeup so easily, whether it’s powder or cream. I am so glad your 2018 has gotten off to a great start as well. You are so motivating!

    Hi love,

      Don’t feel bad, just give yourself some credit for trying and just try again the next day! That’s pretty much what it’s all about. Keep it up girl!

    I didn’t even know EcoTools had a box! I love their makeup brush wash and it is literally the only thing I wash my brushes with. Great brushes are a must and add so much to applying makeup and makes a novice like me seem like I know what I am doing. I love the little hair ties too that don’t crimp your hair. I think goals and resolutions to better ourselves are always good to have. I’m working on cutting down my sugar and also making exercise a part of my daily routine. Thanks for sharing this post and I will have to check up on that box! It’s so packed with goodies! xoxo, Christine

    Hello my friend. Thank you for your positivity for this year. I haven’t been feeling myself lately, but I still believe 2018 is going to be a much better year. The products and your routines sound perfect. I obviously am like you and write down my feelings and what not daily. As you know I always go back and refer to things that happen to me. I’m glad you and G can do that together. I admire you both so much.
    Beautiful post as always.
    Love, Dom
