CBB Guest Post: Beauty Resolutions with Megan Joy

January 20, 2015

Good morning, friends! I have a guest post today from one of my absolute favourite bloggers out there – Megan Joy! I met Megan through the Canadian Beauty Bloggers group and I am so excited to share this guest post today! Yay, welcome Megan!

Hi everyone, I’m Megan from meganjoy.ca. I’m so excited to be guest posting on Jodi’s blog today!

The theme this month is Beauty Resolutions so without further ado here are my beauty related resolutions for 2015!

This should be a no-brainer but alas I am one of those people who rarely wears sunscreen. In my early 20’s I figured that if I wasn’t going to tanning beds I was taking care of my skin. WRONG! Turns out I should have been wearing SPF daily anyway to prevent the wrinkles that I now have.

So many brands are adding SPF to their products now which is great. Everything from BB creams to moisturizers have it already built in. No more excuses, it’s going to become a daily part of my skincare routine from now on!

I’ve always been a “natural when possible” kind of gal but this year I’d like to take it further. I will never switch over to a completely natural makeup and skincare regimen but there is a lot more I could be doing. I recently started using DoTERRA Essential Oils and they have a million different uses. They are amazing when added to lotions or coconut oil to naturally heal and improve the skin.

I use the Clear Skin Topical Blend to help heal breakouts but there are so many other oils I could use to help get my skin in better shape. Lavender is amazing for soothing irritated skin, you can even add a few drops to your bath to help you relax.

You can never have too many pink lip balms right? Right??

I have admitted before that I have an addiction to lip products (as you can see). I’m not saying that I won’t buy anything in 2015, but I am going to try and focus on using up what I have before I splurge on something new. I had a habit of forgetting about a product and then buying something similar. I ended up having doubles of some things and way too much makeup in general.

Keeping my makeup organized is a great way to make sure I know what I have and I actually use it!

I’ll never shy away from a bold pink lip, but when it comes to red lipstick I am always super self-conscious wearing it. I’ve also had that purple liquid liner from Lush for 4 months and have yet to wear it. I have a hard time convincing myself to wear bold colours for day-to-day makeup looks but the truth is there are no rules when it comes to makeup! I could wear black lipstick and pink eyeshadow to the grocery store if I wanted to. Live your truth!

And so, 2015 will be a little more colourful. Or, at least my eye shadow will be!

I hope you enjoyed this post! If you want to see more beauty stuff and photos of my french bulldog you can find me on my blog, Twitter and Instagram!

  1. Great guest post, Megan! I’m glad to see you’re opting for bolder colours this year- I’m all about that! I’m also trying to incorporate sunscreen more often and have definitely been on a natural skin care kick recently 🙂

  2. I am so guilty of buying lip products and then hardly ever using them – it’s a problem. I’ve been really focusing on using what I have over the past year, and it’s amazing how many products I’ve actually re-discovered that I love! One of my blogger friends just sent me some essential oils to try because she’s a big fan and I can’t wait to test them out!
