Ailish Lucas – Make Your Life Brilliant

Ailish 1Ailish was an energised performance client on the Make 2013 Brilliant Course lead by Kim Ingleby and she personally stands by it when looking at goals, achievements and getting focused.

“I had been miserable for a really long time. I wanted to make some changes, but I was scared. Scared of the unknown, scared of failing and had listened to too many scared people who didn’t have the courage to believe in themselves and follow their dreams.  Then I had a kick in the backside from one of my friends; ‘we all know you’re unhappy. Suck it up or do something about it’.  So I did. I quit my job (not having another one to go to btw), blagged my way into some freelancing work in the area I wanted to be in (beauty) and booked a trip to Peru and Bolivia for a bit of an adventure.

This was just under 18 months ago. Suffice to say, I’ve never felt more alive and happy. There is a certain kick you get from being in charge of your own life whether that’s through the work you do, the way you eat or exercising. You feel in control of your destiny a little more than before. And once you get a taste of this, you’re hooked. And I’m pretty certain that when you start moving in the direction of your dreams, the endorphin rush you get is addictive.  So with this in mind I wanted to mention briefly why I went into beauty.

I’m obsessed with helping people look good and feel amazing about themselves. It’s quite similar to personal trainers really but I deal with your face, skin, hair, make-up and a whole lot of beauty products. The beauty that I’m most interested in however, is organic, natural and clean beauty. I want people to feel good but also know the products they are using don’t have petroleum in their mascara, lead in their lipstick and parabens in their skin care.  You spend so much time and effort eating well, drinking water, exercising and sleeping to then throw it all away by slathering parabens on the largest organ you have? It doesn’t make sense. And this is one of the main reasons I’m in beauty. To help spread the word about the brand I’m an ambassador for, to empower women to make informed choices and also move towards their goals, dreams and ambitions through enabling them to set up a business in this area too.

So, what top tips do I have for sporting beauties like yourselves I hear you ask? Here are my top 3.

Top 3 sporting beauty tips

1). Get a moisturiser with an SPF in it. You might have heard this numerous times but a moisturiser is the king of products when it comes to helping you look good and if you’re outside a lot, your skin is going to be exposed to all the British extremities. Buy one or face the consequences. You have been warned. P.S Boys, this applies to you as well. Just because you have stubble doesn’t mean you are exempt.

2). Use an exfoliator. This includes both your body and your face. You sweat, it gets clogged up in your pores, and you’ll get spots if you don’t wash and exfoliate your skin properly. Having a spotty cleavage is not hot from where you have had that pool of sweat in your sports bra ladies! Bear in mind you’ll need two separate products as your face is way more sensitive than your skin.

3). Get into a routine. That’s right. You know all that preaching beauty experts waffle on about telling you to cleanse, tone and moisturise? It really does pay off. By now you’ll have mastered your sports routine so pick up your measly beauty one and give it a shake-up. You’ll thank me in 30 years’ time when you look fresh as a daisy.

So there you have it. A snapshot of my life, my passion and my expertise. Oh and my favourite quote below. Enjoy.”
