How to Wash Your Face Like Audrey Hepburn

Audrey Hepburn is fashion goals all day every day but she is also a beauty muse. I love staring at her gorgeous face. She was one hell of a beauty. Audrey Hepburn beauty/skincare tips are always a reading pleasure. I love trying out her skincare tips. They always work so well for me. Recently, I came across some of her face wash tips and I have been washing my face just like that. The steps are quite easy to follow and very straightforward. You may find that you have been unconsciously washing your face like this the whole time and not realise our very own Audrey Hepburn recommended these same steps.

How to Wash Your Face Like Audrey Hepburn
Immerse the soap bar in hot water

The first step is to immerse your soap bar in hot water that is comfortable to touch. Then rub the soap bar gently over the face. After rubbing the soap bar all over the face, dip the soap bar again into the hot water and make a rich lather in your hands.

Massage lather over the face

The next step is to massage lather over the face.

Splash the face 20 times with the hot water

Once the lather has been massaged all over the face, splash the face 20 times with the hot water. Remember this water must be comfortable to touch, so not too hot. It is best to mix some hot water in a container so you are sure you have the right temperature.

Splash the face 10 times hot running water

This is the tricky bit, splashing the face 10 times with hot running water is the next step. I do this step quickly so the water does not get too hot.

Pat dry

The final step is patting the face dry with a very soft towel. Don’t be tempted to rub as this could your skin do more harm than good.

If in Doubt, Wear Black.

If in Doubt, Wear Black.

All Black OOTD

The colour black is always in vogue, regardless of the fashion season or where you are in the world. Trends may come and go, but black is always in style, or so it seems. The colour is constantly in the shops, and on the catwalk, all year. It is a prominent colour in the wardrobe of most fashion conscious men and women. Many fashion bloggers, fashion designers and style icons like Victoria Beckham, Rachel Zoe, and Audrey Hepburn, are usually seen rocking all black outfits, and who would blame them, black is a very powerful colour.

Dressing in all black is often perceived as a strong, stylish, fashion statement. It is classic and timeless, and the true style queens now how to work it. It takes confidence to wear all black and look good. There is a thin line between wearing all black, and looking stylish, and wearing all black, and looking grumpy.

I love anything black. Monochrome pieces and accessories are also my favourites. I find them versatile, super flattering, and easy to style. I love the fact that I can wear the same classic black dress to the office, to a restaurant and to an event. I attended a bloggers event with Propellernet and Premier Inn last year, and I remember thinking long and hard of what pieces to wear for the 2 day event.  I wanted to dress formally, but I didn’t want to stand out too much. It was my first bloggers event and all, so I was going in there blind, not sure what to expect. I just obeyed the fashion golden rule – ‘If in Doubt, Wear Black’, and it worked. I settled on a black fitted Next dress for the first day, and a black Next top and skirt for the second day (Yes, I love Next), and I looked stylish and chic, but not over the top, which was the look I was going for.

Most of my pieces and accessories are in black. I only started adding some colour to my wardrobe some years ago, there was a time I had only monochrome clothing and accessories, but a bit of colour is required every now and again. Whenever I have an event to attend, and I can’t think of what to wear, I just throw on a black outfit, and it is yet to fail me. If in doubt, just wear black.

Do you agree? Is black a prominent colour in your wardrobe? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Thanks for reading. Thank God its Friday.

Have a great weekend x

 

 

Female Body Shapes: The Ballerina Shaped Woman

I have previously written about the different female body shapes some years. It was actually one of the first blog posts I wrote in 2012 when I first started blogging, check it out here. It is an Oldie but a Goldie, it was well received and is still one of the most popular posts on the blog so I decided to write a series of more detailed posts about the different female body shapes.

Today it is all about The Ballerina body shape. This shape is desirable for ballad and it is also meant for fashion, it consists of a tiny waist, small bust, defined toned body, narrow hips and endless legs. Twiggy, Nicole Kidman and Audrey Hepburn are some of the famous ballerina shaped women. Some fashion models also have this shape.

The ballerina shaped woman has the tendency to look boyish so The Fashion Tip is to go for feminine pieces like an A line skirt, a full skirt and similar pieces.

When it comes to any body shape, the idea is to highlight the positives and delete the negatives. Here are the DOs and DONTs for the ballerina shaped woman:

DOs

  1. Play up your body shape with solid colours like black and white.
  2. Wear full skirts and big bold belts to draw attention to your tiny waist.
  3. Opt for outfits that show off your graceful neck.
  4. Opt for feminine pieces like dresses, skirts and so on.

DONTs

  1. Avoid maxi skirts and dresses, they do nothing for your silhouette.
  2. Avoid tight bodycon dresses. You don’t have the curves to fill them.
  3. Avoid clothes with large print, they have the power to drown out your elegant features.

Those are the fashion tips for the ballerina shaped woman. Are you a ballerina shaped woman? Do you have any tips to share? Sound off in the comment section. Thanks for reading and have a fantastic Friday.
