Let’s talk about another elephant in the makeup world. Color correctors and concealers, do you need one or both, and how to use them. You’ve probably seen makeup in pastel colors and the thought that putting green or orange on your face can be intimidating, but color correctors could completely save your life if you need to cover ANY type of discoloration on the face.

If you’re a tired mama and you struggle with under-eye circles, hyperpigmentation, redness, acne and so forth, we are here to help you understand how they can help.

This week our pranic guru covers your expectations of yourself and the reality of burning out.

With all of us multi-tasking over house cleaning, cooking, managing remote learning for our kids, COVID stress, work and so much more. So many things rests on your shoulders and the feeling of being burnt out is natural. Remember to pause when you need to recharge. Read more about this in our meditation guide on our site.

Do you set aside time to recharge during the day or when your kids have gone to bed? Is there anything special you do just for yourself during the day?

Foundation will help you to create a nice blank canvas and even-out your complexion or any imperfections. It’s a no brainer that it should be applied on cleansed skin, but priming often gets overlooked.

A primer may add an additional step to your makeup routine, but it will go a long way to ensure that your foundation looks flawless since it turns your skin into a perfectly smooth surface. How you apply your foundation determines the coverage and overall evenness of your look. Read more on our site to learn about the right tools and the right way to apply your foundation.

Remember we discussed that when someone hurts us, we should forgive but not forget. Now what? Doesn’t ‘not forgetting’ mean we are holding onto grudges? Every time we meet that person or we find ourselves in similar circumstances, won’t we “remember” what had happened? Won’t that make matters worse?

The answer is simple, Unplug Yourself from that feeling. The method, not so simple. You might have to practice it a few times before you can feel yourself disconnected from the negative feeling. Our pranic healer covers the method on our site.

Do you do anything to heal yourself from within? Has it helped?

The ultimate goal for a good base for makeup is to find a foundation that looks like your own skin - only better.

Nowadays, there is an endless number of possible products, shades, finishes, textures, or levels of coverage. You can go from a very natural tone with a touch of coverage to full coverage that will conceal the most stubborn spots. You can customize it to your needs just like a coffee order, but that can also make it very confusing and frustrating to find the best match. On our site, we have listed five things to consider before shortlisting your foundation.

Do you know which part of your body you should test the foundation swatch on? And before you tell us it's your hands or arms... let me tell you it's not!! 😁

*Clue in our article or we will let you know end of day.

Color mixing is an important part of children’s learning and Animal Colors is such a fun book to explore!

Christopher Silas Neal combines not only colors but also animals to form a unique creature. Our collegue, Kayla Rochelle, and her daughter had a ball calling out the color combo answers and together they laughed over each and every illustration of the resulting imaginary animals.

Have you discovered any other good books or programs for color combinations?

Looking for ways to help your kids learn their letters? We have six fun - and very easy! - games and activities on our site to help you teach your preschooler the ABCs. Sharing the letter hunt game below that I have played my kids.

Write upper and lower case letters on Post-It notes, index cards or construction paper. Hide the cards (remember to stay at or below preschool height!) throughout your house. Depending on the child's ability level they can bring them to you in order, or you can help them put them in order after they've retrieved them all. You could add to the excitement by giving them clues to where you have hidden them!

What games do you enjoy playing with your child?
