A critique of my own”Neutral make up tutorial” recorded a million years ago, Cringe!!

 

 

Looking over my old blog posts, I stumbled across this and when I watched it back I had a real good giggle.  Here is my critique of my own make up tutorial!!

A bit about the video.  And yes it really is that bad!!

This was recorded what feels like many many years ago, in actual fact I think it was maybe two years ago.  I totally cringe when I watch this, one because of my horrible Scottish accent, two because I do a million things wrong, and three although I love the overall look, which by the way I have no idea how it did turn out okay as my application skills are rubbish.  Everything in this video has changed, and I don’t just mean the hair colour.  My whole make up routine has changed.  This was when I was just starting to get a bit more confident within myself and my make up skills, after this video I kind of threw myself into researching the industry, reading books and biographies, watching YouTube videos, joining Facebook groups and reaching out to Professional Make up artists based in my area for any opportunities.

From passion to obsession.

It goes to show that I really did pay attention to all of the posts, books, videos and general information I took in during my totally OCD obsession with makeup.  This obsession was no where near a new obsession, I did my first bridal party when I was 18 years old, including the bride, so I have always had a love for make up even when I was younger I wore my make up different to everyone else’s and I was complimented on it a lot, but, with makeup artistry exploding via social media this sparked my long lost passion big time.

Watch my terrible video here

 

 

This is my second make up tutorial. This one is much better than the first one. But lets face it that’s not hard to beat considering my dog ate my make up brush in the last video.

So what’s the look in the new vid??

In this tutorial I show you how to quickly and easily get a beautiful day look using neutral tones. Featuring the MUA Heaven and Earth palette I show you how to get a look that totally transforms you but can be worn throughout the day, to work or the gym. I have used browns, creams, in dark and light pigments. This is only a 15 minute long video from beginning to end. It is quick and easy. Go on give it a try.

We are all learning all the time, we all had to start somewhere.

The research and reaching out to professionals really paid off. My application skills, hygiene knowledge and general knowledge regarding the industry is much better, I am much more confident now in giving advice since I can now give advice knowing that what I am saying is 100 percent correct.  I was invited to a few high profile make up masterclasses one of which was held at the Dome in Edinburgh, which is a very fancy hotel in the capital.  The masterclass was run by Lynn Mills who is the founder of Girl Meets Brush and has a make up bridal team called Eyecandy, she has worked with celebrities and has loads of experience within the industry so I learned a lot during these masterclasses, my job was to assist so I handed out face charts, helped clear up, that kind of thing but I think I learned more than anyone else there, I was the only one sat jotting things down in a notepad like a maniac.So, if you have a passion but know you are no expert, then you will more than likely love learning about it, I did, I have notepads full of stuff I had written down, from books and at masterclasses, everyone has to start some where, and I bet even the biggest and best Beauty Vloggers/YouTubers out there all have a bad video or two hidden away in their deleted folder on their laptop.

If you have a passion then follow it, learn it, share it.

The message I am trying to get across is that we all have to start somewhere and do not be afraid of criticism, or judgement.  Judgement is something I am not afraid of so that’s why I went ahead and posted this video.  I had just started my Facebook group at the time I posted this video and although I feel like I was very inexperienced, people still complimented me and asked for videos and blog posts on how I applied my makeup.  You do not have to be an expert, but, saying that you do have ensure the advice you are giving is correct,or else people like I was at the time of recording this video end up getting false information which is shared the re-shared among social media and is the taken for truth, I fell victim to this many many times via social media, I solved this by making sure I followed only poeple who had the title professional and who had great reviews to make sure information shared was accurate.

If I can do it anyone can and I really, really mean that!!

If you have a passion then go for it, learn it, love it, share it.  Do not be afraid.  If I can do it then anyone can.  My video is terrible, I sound and look awful.  My applicati0on skills measure up to the skills of a 5 year old, but you know what, I do not care.

I am proud of who I was then, I am proud of how far I have come and what I have learned, and I will be proud to post a vid showing my new found skills.

A smile and confidence are the two best cosmetics a girl can own.

Product review – Garnier Ambre Solaire SPF 30 BB Cream

Product Description: This is what Garnier say this product does “Perfect the look of your skin immediately, even under the sun! Garnier Ambre Solaire new BB Cream Sun Protection has been created specifically to meet the need for high SPF protection for the face and neck with all the benefits of a beautifying BB Cream. In just one step, your skin looks perfected and is protected in the sun against UVB and UVA rays.”

WIN_20160719_21_10_31_Pro I received this BB cream in the post, I was asked to use and review it. Honest opinion only of course and these are my findings.

This product has a very light texture although I have come across BB Creams that have a much more light texture than this one. This one is more on the foundation end of the texture scale where most BB Creams are more on the tinted moisturiser end of the texture scale. It is not watery at all, and gives good coverage.

When I put the product on my skin as soon as I started rubbing it in you could see that it does definately give skin an instant glow, my skin looked healthy with a dewy look and a healthy glow and even though it is closer to foundation it did not make me look like I had lots of make up on. It looked very natural and light.

Round Up

So to pretty much round this product up, it is a BB Cream and does exactly what all other BB creams do, and that is to even out the complexion while brightening the skin but without the heavy look of a foundation, I really enjoyed that it gave me better coverage than some other BB Creams I have tried. I would definitely make this part of my every day routine. It is light enough to add concealer on top of but gives enough coverage on its own to wear everyday. On its own it looks very natural with no heaviness. All of that AND it protects from the UV rays of the sun which we all know is extremely harmful to skin and is the number one cause of the early signs of ageing such as fine lines, creases in the skin, clogged pores and just those big old dreaded wrinkles (that I do not have yet but I am beginning to see that they are in the post and on their way, fine lines around my eyes and on my fore head are getting much more noticeable)

Rateing

I would give this ptoduct a 10 out of 10
I would also recommend this to a friend, well my friend I would recommend that you give this a try for yourself and see what you think, and if you have already used it, or are an every day user please leave in the comments below your personal experience and or opinion on this BB Cream.

Thank you for reading my beautiful people.

Forever Direct Selling Company Review

Forever Review (Direct Selling Company)

I would just like to say before I kick this off that I am in no way affiliated with any direct selling company, none of my posts on any Direct selling companies are in no way paid. I am doing this so that people like you and I can have a 100 percent honest review of a DSC (Direct Selling Company). Most of the reviews that you find online about these companies are either, by independent consultants of the company, or, are paid blog post’s which means that the blogger has had a cash payment for a blog post in return, and as much as all us bloggers would like to say “no matter how much we are paid that all of our reviews are 100 percent honest”………..But, being paid to do a blog post definitely makes the review a little softer.

About Forever

If you have never came across Forever before, then let me get you up to speed. They are one of the longer running companies that are out there, they have been active in the U.K and Ireland since 1993 and have grown a very loyal fan base of Forever finatics since then. Their unique selling point is that all of their products main ingredient is aloe vera, even their toothpaste!! They are a debt – free, cash – rich, family run business, originally based in Arizona U.S.A, and founded in 1978, with an astounding turnover of 2.6 billion dollars. They also own all of their aloe fields, and grow and harvest using a patented process called cold pressing. This means that they only use the gel part of the plant they do not use the green outer part of the leaf as this can cause allergic reactions in some people. Clients that have had this type of reaction using another aloe vera based brands feel that it is the aloe vera they are allergic to which is not they case. People that have used Forever’s products do not get the reaction they had while using other brands. Their process is totally unique. And just a little interesting fact, aloe is actually part of the lily family and is also known as the “miracle plant” or “natural healer”, it has soothing properties and is very versatile.

Products I tried and info

I was kindly sent some samples to try by the lovely Dawn Humphries who only had amazing things to say about the company, she explains in an e-mail that working for Forever has given her financial freedom and not only is her family benefiting from her being at home but her bank balance has also been given a boost. But, like I said at the beginning, she will only have nice things to say about the company and thier products, the simple fact of the matter is that she wants people like you and I to buy these products from her. I am in no way saying that this company has not done fantastic things for her work and personal life, I am just here to give a honest opinion of the products. So, here is the list of items I was sent, how I used them, what I thought and what they claim to do for you.

Forever 3 pic collage

1.Aloe Gelly – This items is sometimes referred to as the first aid kit in a tube. Remember that interesting fact that probably bored you?? I said that aloe vera was very versatile. Well this item is a perfect example of that as it has so many different uses, not only can this be used on minor scrapes, cuts, bites, stings, and burns, but its so gentle that you can use it if you have just become a mum as it can be used for nappy rash, place it in the fridge and rub on teething babies gums, or for ulcers or you can even swallow a spoonful if you have a sore throat. It doesn’t only have to be used to heal, its like a type of serum so it can be used on hair or skin. I used it on my hair. I placed a little in the palms of my hands and smoothed it through damp hair. I also used it after drying and styling for a smooth shiny finish, and to keep fly away hairs at bay. I was sent sample sizes of all of the items, this would be one that I would buy a full sized tube of, I am a mother of two and it would be a great alternative to other, stingy products that I have used on burns or scratches that my kids had in the past.

2.Aloe moisturizing lotion – This product is a sure fire way to fight back against pollutants your skin faces on a daily basis. It maintains the skins natural PH balance, its also a great base before make up application. I used this as part of my morning routine, after washing my face with an exfoliating face wash, I applied this lotion, waited for it to dry, then applied my make up as usual. Anyone that has read my blog knows that I am a make up fanatic and I have tried many primers and this stands up beside the best. The product I would say this is most similar to after make up application would be Maybeline baby soft skin. It has the same finish and make up stays nice and matte throughout the day. My make up went on smoothly and my skin looked smooth and plump all day. I was surprised how much of a difference it actually made if I am completely honest, I wasn’t expecting much from this item so I was pleasantly surprised by its results. Another thing that’s worth noting, when I change from one product to another I tend to have a bit of a breakout on the first few days of using a new product but due to the PH balancing properties in this lotion, that did not happen on this occasion which was definite relief for me!!

toothgel and gelly (forever)

3.AloePropolis Creme – Another extremely versatile product. After reading up on this product as I was unsure as to what it actually was as I had never heard of propolis before so wondered what it did, I learned that propolis is actually the waxy substance bee’s use to line their hives. Its water tight and is also anti-bacterial. Forever adds this to the Aloe Vera which makes it ideal for treating dry skin conditions. Its also very useful if you suffer from cracked heels (Yep, sounds so UN-sexy, but even the celebs suffer from this unsightly condition!!) due to it being a natural anti-fungal agent. I used this everyday as a hand cream, as a mum of two, with a part-time cleaning job my hands get really dry due to using lots of different cleaning products. I sometimes get small rash like bumps on my hand, this cream did not sting the rash like other products I had tried and by the time the sample was finished, although it had not gone away completely I had noticed a huge difference. I would totally but a full size version of this product and would recommend it to anyone that has a skin condition.

4.Forever Bright Tooth Gel – Yep!!!!! A toothpaste that actually contains not only Aloe Vera but that amazing bee propolis which is amazing at fighting mouth ulcers. I don’t know why but I was expecting this to taste weird but it didn’t, it was nice and minty. Its bright green in colour which was a surprise as I squeezed it out of the sample sachet. It left my teeth smooth to run my tongue along, my breath was nice and fresh, my teeth looked clean and shiny but I would need a bigger amount of this to be able to give an honest fair review. I will purchase this and review again at a later date so keep your eyes peeled for that!!

5.Aloe Matters Magazine issue 17 – This is the summer special edition and features former

England rugby star Ben Cohen. It contains loads of information on product tips, to, how to make your own summer sorbet’s. There is even a skincare guide which helps ladies like myself, achieve youthful skin. There is another great guide which helps you avoid any summer time beauty blunders. There is plenty of interesting information in this mag, and I am really glad that Dawn sent this along with the samples, it gives me a better feel of what Forever are all about.

So, What is the verdict??

Well, I had never heard of Forever before, which is surprising as they have been around for a while. I really like that all of their products are natural, their products are actually so gentle that they can be used on even animals”!! Not only are they a great company with great morals, but the products do not cause any suffering to any human or animal in any way shape or form. I would happily but the toothpaste and the lotion. After looking through the magazine there are a few other items I would like to try such as the aloe-jojoba shampoo and conditioning rinse. They are also introducing an new

line of anti-ageing skin care, called Infinite by Forever. After reading the double page spread featured in the magazine I would love to add one or two of these items to my night time routine. I am 32 and really need to start using a good anti-aging skin care product so this has presented itself at just the right time, and if I get the results described in the magazine then I won’t have these worry lines for much longer.

Top 5 tips to a brighter complexion

All my life, even when I was as healthy as could be and I am talking, drinking at least 8 pints of water a day, drinking cranberry juice by the bucket load for the benefits of the anti-oxidants in it, exercising everyday, and I was around 18 at this point in my life so my skin should have been glowing, but, I have never had glowing skin.  Its just the way it has always been for me.  So, now I am 33 and my complexion is terrible, two kids, a dog and a partner that has pretty much swapped his mother taking care of him to me tending to him, so, looking after my skin has been way down on my list of priorities for the last few years. So, around 6 months ago I decided I really had to invest in my skin and started looking after it again, in anyway I could.  I have tried every weird mix of home made face mask as well as taken enough vitamins to fuel an Olympic athlete for a good few years and here are my top 5 methods I have found to be the best.

Tips

  • Exfoliate – I cannot highlight just how important this is, in order to reveal the beautiful skin underneath, you have to make sure that you slough off all of the dead skin cells, dirt and grease that’s laying on top of that gorgeous skin that I just know is bursting to get out.  It also clears all of your pores, ensuring that there are no breakouts, or that no horrible little blackheads form.  And, another little tip for you, look for exfoliating face washes that have alpha hydroxy acids, such as glycolic acid included in them, its as simple as reading the list of ingredients, it may seem like such a tedious thing to do, but, trust me, your skin will love you and reward you for it.
  • Take your vitamins – I know, I know, everyone takes vitamins nowadays.  If you want to take full advantage of the benefits taking vitamins can make to your skin, then here are the following vitamins that are most beneficial to your skin and why, Vitamin B, integral to skin generation and slowing the signs of aging, vitamin C, is key to achieving a bright even complexion, vitamin D, prevents breakouts and skin from appearing shallow.  As well as taking your vitamins everyday, you should also keep an eye on those all important ingredients in products, try and buy smart, get yourself things like an exfoliator or skin brightener with vitamin C in it.
  • Use radiance boosting makeup – There are some amazing products on the market that many celebrities use in order to gain that glow from within look.  Apply a skin illuminating cream underneath your make up for a subtle, youthful, dewy glow, there have been some amazing reviews on Nars illuminator, its said to take your skin from dull to bright in one easy step.  Bronzers are also really handy for this too, use a shimmery bronzer instead of a matte and apply it everywhere the sun would naturally hit the face.
  • Coconut Oil, if you have yet to try it then do it, do it now!!! – Virgin coconut oil has the ability to restore and rejuvenate damaged skin. But, that’s not all it does, it has a long list of benefits for your skin, It heals repairs and leaves your skin radiant, it fights free radicals due to the amazing anti-oxidants in it, and it is amazing for evening out your skin tone, improving the skins texture leaving you with a subtle glow.  The list of benefits doesn’t end there, coconut oil can be used on your hair, skin, and is also very beneficial when digested, but that’s a totally different blog post.
  • Always remember, whats going on on the outside, is a reflection of what’s going on in the inside!! The busy girls guide to getting your 5 a day!! – I know, you are bound to be sick of hearing this, you are what you eat, the way to  healthy skin, hair nails and everything else we all want to be perfect, starts on the inside.  Although, the thought of a healthy as can be, fresh fruit and veg kind of breakfast, lunch and dinner makes me feel amazing and really motivated about eating healthy, I just do not have the time to prepare before every meal, sometimes I do have time but sometimes isn’t enough, so, I got myself a blender, so every morning I throw what ever fruit the kids fancy into the blender, add some hidden ingredients such as cucumber which my son is adamant he does not like, so its not only great for your skin but for your stress levels, which we all know is the primary cause of those frown lines, and those two horrid lines in between your eyebrows, What? You don’t have them?? Looks like its just me then!!  You can also throw things such as kale, ginger, broccoli, and any other nutrient rich super food.  Great for your skin, saves time, gets some fruit and veg into your and your children if you have any, and great for your overall health, a total winner.

 

Two of my fave homemade face masks for glowing skin!!

  • Lemon and Milk Both lemon and milk contain alpha-hydroxy acids (AHAs) that promote dead cell removal. Combining both of these inexpensive, readily available products together makes for an amazing instant glowing boost to tired dull skin.  Take 2 table spoons full of milk (you can use what ever milk you like but I use whole mi;k, simply because its the type of milk I use in my household) and 2 tea spoons full of lemon juice, leave in a dish or bowl for a while till it gets to room temperature,the milk breaks down and creates a type of curd, I know it sounds gross, but, give it a go and I bet you will be doing a weekly application, apply the curd mixture to a clean dry face then allow it to sit on the skin for around 20 – 30 minutes then wash it off with clean luke warm water.
  • Banana, Cinnamon and Honey Take half a banana and mash it into an even consistency. Then add 2 tbsp of organic honey and ½ tbsp of finely ground cinnamon powder. Mix to create a soft paste. Wash the face with warm water to cleanse, apply the paste with your fingers and allow it to dry for 20-30 minutes before rinsing off. Cinnamon not only opens up the pores on the skin for better penetration of the nutrients from the banana and honey, but also helps fight blemishes on the skin. Adding the banana soothes the dry skin while honey fights free radical damage and exerts antibacterial action.

 

* A Quick Note *

So, I never really thought thatI would be including such a step within a top tip blog post, especially about skin care.  So, here’s why or how it came to be, not within the top 5 but a side note within this post.  I am part of a Facebook group, which if you are a beauty fanatic you have either heard of or are already part of, its called, wake up to make up, a girl posted the following status in the group ” Is going to sleep with your make up on, THEN, applying another layer on top of it the next day really a thing???? I have just read a post in another group where a few girls said that they do this to save time in the morning, it seems a little weird to me, should I give it a try or trust my intuition and give this fad a miss??”  OMG, seriously, going to sleep with your makeup on is terrible for your skin, then, applying another layer on top of your already blocked pores is a sure fire way to breakout town and blackhead city!! I obviously was not the only person that commented on the post advising the young postee to give this so called fad a miss.  This must just be handful of girls as I have never ever heard of this before.  If you apply a full face of make up which clearly takes to long for you to fit in to your morning routine, then you really need to prioritize your skin care routine above your make up application routine, it would be much better to opt for a clean fresh face which would give a beautiful base and therefor a much better finish to your makeup, rather than a full face of make up, which will slowly build up within your pores making your skin appear dirty, dull, spotty, it will definitely create blackheads, as we all know are blocked pores, so, please girls, even if you have only got time to exfoliate with a face wash, then apply a little moisturiser, then thats fucking awesome, thats all you need, keep the deep penetrative treatments for night time when you have more time, your skin will thnak you in the long run.

Top Cosmetic’s Companies for quality and affordability

 

Hello my beautiful people, today I have been looking at some of the amazing budget buys that are out there at the moment, there are so many to chose from. Let’s see who have made my top bargain cosmetics companies so you know exactly where to go to get yours:
NYX cosmetics – matte lipsticks and Lip creams are great, they are matte but without drying your lips, I have had some pretty bad reactions to some matte lipsticks but these have amazing staying power without any horrible side affects.

Elf cosmetics – Love this company, eyes, lips, face have an amazing amount of different products to choose from, and guess what?? Some items start from as little as of items under £3.

Coastal scents – This company has grown in popularity due to their lovely cruelty free perfumes, every single item I have purchased has smelt absolutely amazing.

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics – find OCC at Sephora, who doesn’t like a look through the total beauties Sephora has to offer so here, have another excuse to go in, check out OCC and the amazing products they have to offer at really affordable price’s, you will not be disappointed.

Essence cosmetics – one of my total fave’s.  This is a  European brand with great gel eyeliners and pastel eye shadows, I am a big fan of pretty much everything though!!  I love the blusher, the foundation, some items may not be as long lasting as the high-end products but that is the only critique I have, and for something that can be bought at the fraction of the price of the high-end stuff then that’s a downside I can deal with.

Physicians formula – Another company that has recently grown in popularity due their products, there are no harsh chemicals in their products making them ideal if you have sensitive skin

2B Colours – This is a newish brand from Europe, you can find them at ULTA.  I have not used any of the products by this company so I am taking a bit of a punt here and risking a bit of back lash since I am recommending a company product I have not used, but, the reviews I have read are amazing, they are a company with really great morals and the price’s of the products are what I like to call affordable quality, if you have used them then please leave a comment and share your experience!!

Barry M – good old Barry M great lipsticks from £3.  I think I own about 50 of the nail varnishes, then there is the ever famous Barry M glitter pots that no make up bag is complete without. A really great company who create great products at amazingly great price’s. What more can you ask for??

Bh Cosmetics – I absolutely  love their 88 colour tropical shimmer palette for only £11.95!! And have great deals on make up brushes too. This is my go to place if I am looking for something specific, or for a good big item to update my makeup bag with, there are always great palette’s available, full of the most on trend shades, and for a great price.

Bourjois – another of my fave, I own a few Bourjois products, their matte lipsticks are also amazing, they do not dry out my lips, they look amazing and last forever.  They also do really great mascara, eyeliner and blusher.  You can find Bourjois pretty much any where, from Superdrug and Boots to your local Lloyds Pharmacy, its a really popular brand, another I like to call affordable quality.

Also check out trendslove for promo codes for all of the above, also all of the above sold at sephora or ULTA.

If there are any companies that you think deserve to be on the list above then please leave a comment and let me know who they are and why your a fan.

Your lucky colours and some other info you might want to know!!

Your lucky colours for this year are silver, white and cream, think colours that remind you of the moon, or moonlight, airy colours, pale blue is also a lucky colour for you.  So, what do these colours mean for you?? When you look at what is predicted to transpire for you this year and what those lucky colours of yours actually mean in the world of colour psychology its pretty amazing. The colour silver is a precious metal just like gold, this means that silver can represent riches and wealth, which, is really no surprise since there are four eclipses in your money houses bringing in to fruition any business plans that you have had on the back burner or opportunities may arise that will give you a great career or money boost.  White can symbolize many things, purity, a new beginning, I think that this colour has to do with your fitness as for the last 3 years Saturn has been in your sixth house of wellness, making finding the time for exercise and fitness rather tricky, but, with Saturn now gone stability and vitality are restored.  Cream is a colour of elegance, its a very natural relaxing colour, this could represent the stability your due to feel mid year, you will begin to fall in to a groove of routine but do not confuse routine with boredom. Did I mention that the July 12th cancer solar eclipse will have you full of energy, you will be keen to explore new things, whether its relationship wise career wise or with a group of friends, there is even a new look on the cards for!!  How amazing is that, every single one of your lucky colours represents either a trait or an occurrence that is predicted to transpire for you this year.

Your lucky colour’s are white, green and yellow.  When you take a look at the meanings of these colours and what is predicted to transpire for you this year its truly amazing, every colour meaning is significant within the things that are going to happen for you this year.  For example, the main change for you this stands within your finance’s, for the first 8 months of 2018 you have an edge over the competition, although hard work will still be needed but you will compensated well for your efforts, green is a symbol of finances so if you have a meeting concerning money then be sure to add a dash of green to your outfit or makeup for added luck, as for white this can symbolize security which is something you will most definitely experience as far as your finances is concerned, and as for yellow, well, I think that this also has a lot to do with the Gemini trait of always (or most of the time) being a very cheerful sign, yellow is a very uplifting colour and has proven to improve your mood when feeling down, this colour is also one of the most stimulating colours and since you are going to be very busy this year then its no surprise this colour is lucky/positive for you.  One more thing to mention is that this year is a great year to find out what you are really passionate about and pursue it, its a great year for you for learning new things so take that leap in to your new found hobbies or passion and success is sure to prevail.

Your lucky colours and some other info you might want to know!!

 Here is a list of your lucky colours for this year.  When you take a closer look at the colours which are sure to bring luck or positivity in to your life its pretty amazing, your lucky colours for this year are light pink, light blue, and green.  Predicted for you this year my dear Taurean friend is well…where do I start, this year you are going to begin a complete overhaul of your life, there have been many aspects within your zodiac that have put pressure on things such as relationships and made them a bit of an up hill struggle, now, however the negativeness has blown away, and when you look at the meaning of the colour pink – it stands for love, relationships, and romance.  Your relationships will indeed be much more happy and full of positive experience’s.  The colour blue, light blue, as the shades of blue do all have a different meaning, so, light blue has been proven by scientists to have a calming affect on our overall mood, and this is what you can expect throughout this year, it also stands for stability, faith, trust and loyalty, like I have already said these are things that you will experience this year within your relationships, you may not feel these affects yet though as these positive times are due to come to you around May, so, if you have been feeling low, please hold on in there as the dark clouds are about to lift, and the even better news is that the positive feelings of this year are predicted to last up until 2026!!  As for green, I think that this colour has more to do with your Taurean traits than the future.  Green is the colour of money and since Taureans are said to be thee best financial advisers thanks to their ability to look at money and deal with it without any stress. It does also mean renewal, growth and harmony.  If you have some kind of meeting regarding money this year then I would definitely wear green, who knows it could make you a millionaire, if you are trying to solve a problem then I would wear light blue, and any dates coming up, and I mean of the romantic type then opt for the pale pink.  How awesome is that, every single colour represents something that is predicted to transpire for you this year in 2018.
