Beauty Muse – Yvonne Okoro

Hey, Beauties! Welcome to the lovely month of September. It is back to school for us here this week and I am excited. To be honest, we all are. It has been a long break from school with homeschooling and summer break thrown into the mix. Going back to school is just what we need. Today, I am featuring this stunning black beauty. If you are into Nollywood and Ghollywood, you would know Yvonne Okoro.

Beauty Muse – Yvonne Okoro

The lovely Yvonne Okoro is the Beauty Muse for September 2020. This stunning young woman is a Ghanaian-Nigerian actress. I have seen many of her movies and I love them,. She is a terrific actress and her beauty is breathtaking. Yvonne Okoro has a gorgeous ebony complexion and it just glows. You can easily spot her wearing little or no makeup, which is refreshing. I love how natural she looks. Her makeup usually highlights her amazing features, instead of changing them completely like the look many celebrities go for. I would love to be a fly on her wall and watch her get her makeup done. I am sure I would learn many new tips.

The picture of Okoro here is so beautiful. She looks like an African Barbie Doll! I love her eye makeup, the shades work great for her skin tone. The lipstick she is wearing is also natural and very pretty. She is definitely a pro when it comes to nailing the natural makeup look. I love it. The hair also looks amazing on her.

Creating Facial Moisturiser with Essential Oils

I recently fell in love with essential oils and I forever playing with different blends. Essential Oils are so multitasking, I use them in many different ways. Like I said in one of my recent posts, I am moving towards the vegetarian/vegan way of life with my diet and I also want to ensure all the products are use are natural and cruelty-free. Creating my own facial moisturiser with essential oils is one way of ensuring my skincare products include natural and cruelty-free ingredients. I have been playing around with various recipes and I am still perfecting the facial moisturiser.

I have noticed that many of the products that claim to be natural still include chemicals in them. This is one of the reasons why I am determined to keep on creating my own hair and skin products to be sure I am happy with all the ingredients. Another reason why I am now creating my own facial moisturizer is that I have noticed my skin breaks out a lot these days, and I am not sure why. Creating my own facial moisturiser will allow me to put in the right ingredients to help get rid of spots and stop the breakouts.

Creating Facial Moisturiser with Essential Oils

The base carrier I like using for my facial moisturiser is grapeseed oil. It is a great oil for normal skin and acne-prone skin too. I like to include a few drops of lavender essential oil into the grapeseed carrier oil to create a facial moisturiser. It works great every time. Lavender essential oil is a great oil for normal and acne-prone skin. It can also be used on other skin types. If you are looking at experimenting with essential oils, I recommend you try the lavender oil first. It is such an amazing oil and can be used in a variety of ways.

I like mixing in one carrier oil and one essential oil at a time to see which blends work well for my skin. Mixing in different oils at the same time will be tricky as you won’t know for sure which oil is doing what. Creating your own facial moisturiser with essential oils is easy if you have the time and if you have an interest in oils. I will be sharing pictures of my DIY homemade facial moisturiser in the next few days so keep reading.

Reasons to have or not to have cosmetic surgery

I have never had cosmetic surgery before and I don’t plan to but I have played with the idea a few times. Many people have had some form of cosmetic surgery done. It is very common with celebrities and Instagram stars these days. So many people are obsessed with the perfect look. They want all their features looking their best and if any is not looking as good, they fix it. Do I blame them? Not at all. I am not one to judge especially when it comes to personal things like cosmetic surgery. However, it is always good to be honest when you get some work done though. My issue with many of these “stars” is that they try to pass the new features off as natural, which sends the wrong message out to their fans.

For me, if you have cosmetic surgery done, own up to it especially to those who look up to you. If you are an everyday woman, you don’t need to tell anyone you are not comfortable telling, but celebs don’t have that same privilege and anyone with any sort of huge following does not as well. I see many social media stars going on about privacy after they have undergone some sort of cosmetic surgery, usually full lips or a new pair of boobs. These new features will be impossible to miss and it is unfair and even misleading to try to make them appear natural when it is clear they are not.

I have nothing against cosmetic surgery

Cosmetic surgery is useful to have around. It is good to know there are cosmetic treatments available if we ever need it. I have had a couple of cosmetic treatments like microdermabrasion and I blogged about it on Fashion and Style Police. Those mini beauty treatments are my favourite kind of skincare treats and I love having them.

I just don’t want cosmetic surgery

Like I said, I played around with the idea of having some work done ages ago. That thought quickly vanished. The thought of going under the knife for a cosmetic reason will never make sense to me, but maybe that is because I am very happy with my body and I love the skin I am in, along with all the features, both perfect and imperfect.

The fact that I don’t want them anymore doesn’t stop me from understanding why others would like to have some work done on them. As I said, I am not one to judge. Besides, many people may have real physical disfigurement through birth, illness or accident, and want to improve their appearance. There is nothing wrong with wanting to improve your features, just ensure you are doing it for the right reasons and that the surgery is worth the reasons. Going under the knife is no joke. I had a Caesarean section with the twins, so I have a good idea of what it means to go under the knife. Think long and hard before you make up your mind.

Reasons to not have cosmetic surgery

It might go wrong. This is the major reason and risk you have to be prepared to take. You will be signing your life away before you go under. Cosmetic surgeries are also very expensive. Many people are unable to afford it even if they want it. Many people also have to deal with the aftermath of having the surgery done. It is a Catch-22 kind of thing. You are dammed if you admit to having the surgery done (you look so vain) and dammed if you don’t admit (you look vain and stupid for thinking people won’t notice).

At the end of the day, the choice is yours and there is no right or wrong way of looking at it. It all depends on what matters to you and what you want.
