Beauty Muse: Yemi Alade

The talented and beautiful Yemi Alade is the Beauty Muse of the month. I have previously featured Yemi Alade as a Style Icon on Fashion and Style Police a couple of years ago. Apart from her stylish taste in fashion, she also has some pretty facial features, which is why she is a Beauty Muse. For those who do not this beauty, Yemi Alade is is a Nigerian Afropop singer and songwriter. Her big break came when she won the Peak Talent Show in 2009. Her hit single a”Johnny” was released in 2014, and her career really took off that the catchy song.

I am a huge fan of Yemi Alade’s music. Her beats are always super catchy and she is also a great dancer. I enjoy watching her music videos, they are always full of amazing moves. This woman is the definition of an African Beauty. Her facial features are stunning and she obviously knows her to care for skin. I have always admired her glowing skin and I am always on the hunt for great skincare products to try. So when I came across an interview with Vogue, where she shared her beauty secrets, I knew I had to blog about it. Here are some skincare products and makeup tips she swears by –

Coconut Oil

Yemi Alade moisturises her face with some coconut oil after cleansing. The fact that she uses coconut oil doesn’t surprise me at all. This amazing product is known for the great skincare benefits. I have a bottle in my bathroom cabinet and I use it on my hair and skin. Coconut Oil is one of those multitasking oils you just need to have.

“Because I am a performance stage artist, and I dance a lot, the most important thing is the primer,” she says. “It keeps everything in place.” After a full-coverage long-wear foundation is applied, Alade uses two different concealers to highlight her lids, then sculpts her eyes with a contour palette, courtesy of the Nigerian beauty brand Zaron Cosmetics. “The main thing that pushed me to learn how to make myself up is because when I travel around the world, I find that Nigeria is very ahead in terms of makeup skills,” she explains. “The Nigerian makeup artists know exactly what they’re doing.”

Beauty Muse: Marilyn Monroe

I have always been a huge fan of the beautiful Marilyn Monroe. Her stunning features makes her a great muse. She had the most amazing facial features. I have never seen a photograph of Marilyn Monroe not looking breathtaking. This woman was and still is one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Marilyn Monroe had a signature red lip that made her face POP! Her classic red lip look has been imitated by many other beautiful women all over the world. Whenever I put on my Mac Ruby Woo, it reminds me of this beauty muse. Monroe is beauty goals all day, everyday.

Marilyn Monroe’s makeup always looked perfect and she had the most amazing skin ever! Like I said, I am a fan of the popping red lips look. It looked amazing on her with her pale skin and blond hair. The swoosh eyelashes also created a sleepy eye look which complemented the red lips.

Marilyn Monroe Makeup Secrets

One of her makeup secrets is using petroleum jelly as a primer and highlighter. This gave her face a soft glow and highlighted the cheek and brows perfectly. You could try this makeup tip if you haven’t done so already. Her makeup game was always ace and it is still inspiring many looks in Hollywood and beyond today.

Apart from using petroleum jelly as a primer and highlighter, she also used it in her skincare routine. In an interview with New York Post, it was quoted that she also used it as a skin moisturiser –

Beauty Muse: Janet Jackson

I grew up listening to Janet Jackson’s soulful voice on the radio. Her voice is unmistakable. I always know a Janet Jackson’s track once I hear it. Apart from being a talented singer and dancer, she is also a beauty muse. It is hard to believe this stunning woman is 53 years old. She could easily pass for a woman in her early 40s. I love her facial features. She is blessed with a spotless skin and amazing physique. I would love to be a fly on her wall to spy on how she takes care of her skin. Her skincare secrets would be wanted by many.

Janet Jackson is a natural. She is one of the lucky people to look amazing with or without makeup. I did a bit of digging and found some of her beauty/skincare tips from the lips of her makeup artist – Preston Meneses. Here they are –

Makeup Tips

Citing “a little contouring on the cheeks”, “a wash of bronze over the eyes” and some face-flattering winged eyeliner as the reasons behind her youthful appearance, the long-term employee of the singer stressed the transformative power of make-up.

Janet Jackson’s makeup is always looking amazing. Preston Meneses does a terrific job on her. It would be lovely to watch him do his thing on her face.

What does beauty look like to Janet Jackson

“It’s vulnerability. Beauty is power. It’s confidence. It’s happiness. It’s seeing the goodness in the soul. It’s spirituality. It’s being selfless and what you do for others before doing for yourself.”

I agree  Beauty is a lot more than the skin and what we see with our naked eyes.
I would have loved to learn more about Jackson’s beauty and skincare secrets. She is a true beauty; definitely a beauty muse and I am a huge fan.
