Embrace Your Mantra - A Beauty Revolution with Gia Minerals

Embrace Your Mantra - A Beauty Revolution with Gia Minerals

Hello friends!

It’s been a while and I’m excited to talk about this collaboration with Gia Minerals!

I recently got the opportunity to work with Georgina (founder of Gia Minerals) to create a super special collection including a few of her products.

We all have little mantras that we keep on a loop in our heads, right? Whether your slogan is YOLO (time to update that one!) or Carpe Diem, I think it helps to have a daily saying to inspire us or remind us who we are.

My beauty mantra is Fearfully and Wonderfully Made.

“I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful. I know that full well.”

Psalm 139:14

Georgina sent over some questions about me, beauty advice and questions about my look!

Who Are You?

I'm Amber. I'm the blogger behind TrulyAmber.com. I'm all about living a true and beauty filled life. I blog about clean beauty and green skincare. I'm a wife, daughter, friend and most importantly - a dog mom to an adorable pup, Zooey.

What is Your Beauty Mantra? 

My beauty mantra is Fearfully and Wonderfully Made. It comes from a verse in the Bible. Beauty trends and the definition of beauty come and go. But I know that I am fearfully (meaning to have extreme respect for something) and wonderfully made. I know that God created me and because of that, I don't need to seek approval from anyone.

What Gia Minerals clean beauty products were used to Embrace Your Mantra?

I used the powder foundation in Chamois, Renaissance eyeshadow, Chiffon eyeshadow, Natural Lash Mascara and the lipstick in Curious.

I applied the powder foundation in Chamois all over and went back and focused under my eyes. I applied Renaissance all over the lid and on my lower lashline. Then I went back in with Chiffon and used it as liner on the top and bottom outer corner lashline to define my eyes a little bit more. After that, I curled my lashes and applied a few coats of mascara! Lastly, I gently tapped on the Curious lipstick. This lipstick is PIGMENTED - which I love! I was feeling a natural look so I applied it pretty light as a stain. But it helps to have products that are buildable to create a bolder look!

What Do You Hope Your Look Communicates To The World?

I love simple makeup. It sounds so cheesy, but let your beauty shine through! I don't know about you, but when someone else does my makeup and they cover every square inch of my face with foundation - covering up every freckle, every blemish, every scar - I don't feel human. And I honestly don't feel that beautiful. I feel self conscious and hidden. I definitely enjoy a subtle makeup look - like what I created with Gia Minerals. 

What is Your Favorite Fantastic Face Feature?

I love my eyes. I love how green and bold they are. They remind me of my moms eyes!

What Gia Minerals Clean Beauty Products Were Used To Enhance Your Favorite Features?

I love using eyeshadows to make my eyes pop. I used Renaissance shadow all over the lid and on my lower lash line to make my green eyes stand out a little bit more.

Favorite Thing About Yourself?

I love making people laugh. Whether I'm dancing like an idiot or telling a funny story, I want to laugh with you!

Favorite Beauty Trick?

I like applying highlighter to the apples of my cheeks. For me, it looks a little more natural. I don't necessarily like the trend of applying highlighter above my brow. When I get sweaty, I mean 'dewey', I tend to glisten on my entire cheek. Not just the cheekbones or my brow!

What Advice Do You Give Women To Purify Negative Thoughts About Their Flaws & Embrace Their Uniqueness?

For me, on days when I feel like I'm insignificant or what I do isn't needed, knowing that there is not another person on this planet like me helps me embrace my uniqueness. I am special. I do matter. I am unique. You are special. You matter. You are unique. 

Ok, enough about me! Here are the shades from the I Am Fearfully & Wonderfully Made Collection!

The staying power of this lipstick is crazy! This was after I blotted it a few times!
