The Ride or Die Makeup Tag Inspired By Jaclyn Hill

I started out with the best of intentions.  I had big plans of having videos and posts scheduled far in advance of my wedding date so I wouldn’t be disappearing for long.  Then the reality of wedding planning kicked in and I realized I barely had time to breath let alone film and edit videos and blog posts.  But before I take a break I just had to do The Ride or Die Makeup Tag inspired by Jaclyn Hill.

My wedding is a week away (eek, where did the time go?!).  So I won’t have any new post/video up until after I get back from my Honeymoon.  So hopefully the week after Labor Day I will have some new content ready for you… and I have a TON of great stuff planned for September.  So be sure to stick around for that!!

But enough rambling, let’s get into the Tag….

How to Lose Weight with Snapchat

I will fully admit to being skeptical of Snapchat when it first got popular.  I’m still not fully sold on it… and with the new Snapchat vs Instagram Stories debate who knows which has the staying powder.  However, I have found Snapchat helpful for one thing… fitness motivation.  So I thought I would compile my tips for how to lose weight with Snapchat….

How to Lose Weight with Snapchat

Post your daily workout.  Yes, you can do this on any social media, but I use each of my social media platforms differently.  Facebook is more for my personal connections.  Twitter is for connecting with brands and other influencers.  Instagram, the original, is usually a polished version of life, and I also don’t like to post on that feed too many times in a day.  However, with Snapchat you can post however and whenever you wish.  It’s just more casual and it doesn’t have to be a “perfect” pic.  So it’s the perfect place to take a quick pic of your workout outfit, your workout video, or anything that signifies that you’re gettin’ your fitness on.

The purpose of this is not really for anyone else, just for you.  I find it very motivating to put it out in the universe that I’m working out.  Sometimes people snap back that they are too, or that they’ve done the same workout, or just an encouraging comment.  Sometimes they don’t, but who cares… this motivation is for me.

Follow Inspiring Fitness People.  Again, you can do this on any social media platform (and you should), but Snapchat is much more real.  I find fitness snaps to be more relatable,and therefor more motivating.  I love following ViviannaDoesMakeup and I’ve started following Khloe Kardashian, who is already a great motivation when you see her body transformation… definitely check out her book… and I also have tips for getting Khloe’s fitness closet on a budget.  

Get Sweaty with Your Snaps.  I try to make myself a deal: I can check my Snapchat stories if I’m working out while doing it.  I’m lucky enough to have access to a Stepper, so I won’t check Snapchat unless I’m on the machine breaking a sweat.  There are other exercises you could do, like a stationary bike or treadmill, or even sit ups and pushups.  It does’t matter what you do, just feel the burn… although don’t go for a walk or bike ride outside with your eyes glued to your phone, it’s dangerous in more ways than one.

Note: All of these tips can be used with Instagram Stories

Which do you like using more Snapchat or Instagram Stories? What’s your favorite fitness motivation trick?

Face Forward by Kevyn Aucoin Review

Every great story is told in a trilogy.  And while the story of makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin ended much to early, in his short life he managed to give us three legendary books dedicated to his true love, and mine, makeup.  Face Forward by Kevyn Aucoin is a final chapter of a beautiful life that was taken too soon….

Pinning is Glamorous!

Face Forward by Kevyn Aucoin Review

Face Forward by Kevyn Aucoin Review

As I mentioned in my review of Kevyn Aucoin’s first book, The Art Of Makeup is like an appetizer.  It’s just a taste of what’s to come.  His second book, Making Faces, is the main course.  It’s meaty, filling, and oh so satisfying.  His final book, Face Forward, is like dessert.  It’s sweet and delicious, but not as filling as the main course.  You can read these books in any order… you can always have dessert first… but they make sense chronologically.

Face Forward does have some basic makeup tips, but not as many as Making Faces, and they are not quite as basic.  It is really more of a continuation of the beautiful images of Kevyn Aucoin’s makeup work on everyone from celebrities to his Mom..who he turns into a stunning Marlene Dietrich.  You also don’t want to miss Calista Flockhart as Audrey Hepburn, or Martha Stewart unrecognizable as Veronica Lake.

So would I recommend this book?

If you love makeup as a skill and art form, then YES read all three if you can get your hands on them.

If you’re just starting out learning about makeup, I’d start with Making Faces and go from there.

Have you read Face Forward?  I’d love to hear your thoughts.

If there are any makeup/beauty related books or films that you’d like me to review let me know? I’m always looking for suggestions.
