Your Makeup Bag
Let’s start by taking a good look at your makeup bag. Is it clean, fresh, and new?
Ideally we want a beautiful, clean, and well-cared-for beauty bag because it reflects upon your own degree of self-care and health.
We’re not quite done with the bag itself just yet. We can also apply feng shui principles to the color of your bag! My first suggestion is to listen to your intuition and see what color speaks to you or what you currently like. More often than not, this can help you glean some insight into your feelings and possible issues with regard to how beautiful you feel and how well you’re taking care of yourself.
Greens are related to fresh energy and starting something new. The color is especially healing and soothing if we have stress, health, or skin issues. Similar to green, pale and dark blues are calming and relaxing whereas brighter blues (like teal) relate more to the high energy of green. Blues are also healing.
The fiery energy of red signals attention, passion, and sexiness. Maybe you need to tap into some latent sexy fire energy for inspiration and passionate beauty. And then there’s pink. Go for pinks if you want a softer, more feminine energy. In feng shui, “peach blossom luck” is helpful in attracting a romantic partner. Both pinks and especially peach tones fall into this attractive color family.
Purple may be attractive and/or helpful if you need to work on your self-esteem. It’s a color that’s related to royalty and wealth.
Earthy colors, like browns, yellows, and oranges relate to self-care and nourishment. Maybe you need to take care of yourself a bit more. Similar to yellow, oranges fall into the earthy color tones. But sometimes oranges can get bright and straddle more into the fire-red family. So this color can tap into either the red or yellow uses.
Whites and grays encourage a more joyful and simple beauty routine. White is the color related to the metal element, which actually governs ideal beauty.
Black is probably one of the most common colors when it comes to a beauty bag, and for good feng shui reason! Black is a color of wisdom and can transmute negative energy into knowledge.
