No Makeup “Makeup” | Natural Radiance | She Glows

The one makeup look that will never go out of style is the…

dum da da dum 

Au Naturel look.

Not a surprise I’m sure, but seriously there is nothing more envy worthy than someone who is confident in their own skin. Although I would love to truly rock this look and feel great, I admit it…I cheat and mimic a bare face with a few essential products. (See list below).

Now ideally, who wouldn’t love to roll out of bed and head out of the house with a flawless complexion, bright eyes, and defined cheek bones without applying an ounce of makeup.  But let’s be real that is just not the case most days (or any day for that matter).  Lately I’ve found myself gravitating toward more neutral complementary products to be applied sparingly.  So if your mornings or anything like mine, forget the cream contour and ditch the winged liner. Simply take an extra 5 to 10 minutes then get on your way looking great in your own skin (well almost…).

Below are a list of products that I like to use to achieve my Au Naturel flawless finish:

Fall Makeup | Dark Lips | Beauty Tips

Seasonal Fall Makeup | Dark Lip
Seasonal Makeup for Fall 2015 | Dark Brown Lip | MichKalon

The above look has been my “Go To” look for the Fall Season. Nothing says Fall to me more than Pumpkin Spice Lattes and a Dark Matte Lip. To complete any Fall look opt for a dark brown lip matte lip color, subtle contour, and a warm brown smokey eye.

Beauty Tip: Dap your finger in a creamy gold eyeshadow and dab it onto the center of your bottom lip.  This creates a touch of dimension and shine for extra lushious lips!

Hello World

The beginnings of a lifestyle blog of beauty, fitness, and food. Stay Tuned!

Allow me to introduce myself…

I am a 20 something, fiercely independent girl striving to live a beautifully unconventional life.  From when I was little I always knew that I wanted to be unique. Being so-called “normal” did not and does not appeal to me in the least. I always wanted to have my own style, hobbies, dreams, and ambitions. Though I’ll admit more often than not I’ve succumbed to societal pressures and tried to be what I’d envisioned a “perfect” person to be. Now I’ve decided to begin this blog to allow myself the freedom to express what it means to be uniquely me.

I want this blog to be a forum to embark on a journey to share my passions with others. Whether I will be sharing with those of similar passions or with others who are looking to embrace new experiences, I’m extremely excited to begin this journey.

I hope through this blog to inspire others to try new things, take risks, and be adventurous; all for the sake of being true to oneself. Here I invite others to join me in their own journey to find the beauty in their own life.  I want to open this site up to enable others to tell me about their passions and experiences that are unique to them.

Below is a compilation of my current interests and thoughts. Think of this as a sneak peak of what you can expect to see in my future posts.

SNEAK PEAK:

Life Mantra:

Inspiring others toward happiness brings you happiness.

Fitness Passions:

Yoga, Pilates, Pole Fitness, Running, HIIT, Barre, Spin, (Anything that incorporates the mind/body connection)

Beauty Therapy:

Make Up looks, Skin Care Products, Celebrity Tutorials (All that embodies a sophisticated glam style)

Heart of a Foodie:

Paleo, Vegan, Raw, Whole Food Eating, Mouth Watering Recipes (I dabble in all things related to good food)

The list above encompasses all that intrigues me today.  I will warn you that I have a wild imagination and an ever growing list of passions and goals.

So I encourage you to stay tuned…xoxo Mich
