Beauty Muse: Amber Rose

Amber Rose may not be the regular definition of a beauty, but she is a true beauty. I love the fact that she looks so different. You can easily spot her in a group. She stands out from the rest in a beautiful way.

I have followed Amber’s career since her days with Kanye West. I remember seeing them together on the red carpet, and wondering who the bald blonde was. I have been intrigued since then. I may not agree with her way of life, who she dates, half of what she tweets or posts on Instagram but her sense of humour is infectious. Laughter is the best medicine and she comes across as a very happy, carefree woman, which speaks volume. This woman’s beauty is goals for me.

I love Amber Rose‘s flawless skin. I guess part of it may be due to genetics but I always wondered what her skincare routine would look like, so I went digging. Here are some of her skincare secrets:

I’ve always been good about moisturizing. Every morning and every night, everyday. What I do, and this sounds kind of weird, but I buy these pint-size containers of raw African shea butter from street vendors, I microwave it, and after I shower, I rub it everywhere. Even on my scalp and face. Nothing works better. And it’s cheap!

When asked what skincare regimen was:

Just Dove soap. I’ve never really tried anything else. I’ve always felt that when you use too many products or try too many new things, you’re just piling a lot of unnatural, unnecessary stress on your face. I try to keep it simple.

Just Dove soap? I guess her beautiful skin is all down to genetics pretty much.

Beauty Muse – Cindy Crawford

Cindy Crawford Beauty Muse

The beautiful Cindy Crawford is still as beautiful and as fabulous as ever even at 50. This beauty successfully dominated the catwalks, along with 4 other supermodels, in the eighties and nineties, and she is still very much around, doing her thing. I love everything about Cindy Crawford. She has a face and a figure to die for. I hope I look half as good as she does at 50.

I am glad she never got rid of the mole, even though she was pressured to. It looks good on her, and it is part of her signature look.

There is something about Cindy Crawford that reminds me of Caitlyn Jenner. I saw some pictures of her in the recent issue of the Fashion London Guide magazine, and for a split second I thought it was Caitlyn Jenner. Maybe it is the hair or the lips, I am not sure, but there is a resemblance there.

Apart from her beauty, I also admire Cindy’s strong work ethic. She is not in the news for the wrong reasons, never has. She is all about family and work, which is refreshing compared to other similar supermodels. She currently spends most of her time off the catwalk and magazine covers, and more time running her anti aging skincare line – Meaningful Beauty.

I have been doing some research into Cindy Crawford’s beauty tips, and she has repeatedly said she ain’t got one! She thinks beauty tips/secrets are overrated. Can you believe that?

She did share bits and bops of her skincare routine, most of which is heavily centered around her skincare line – Meaningful Beauty, which is expected. However, I took a few tips she shared away with me, here they are:

I love using a dry brush before I bathe or shower. On dry skin, I use the brush all over my body, always brushing toward my heart. Not only do you brush off dead skin, you invigorate your body, stimulate your lymphatic system, reduce cellulite, and decongest your skin (talk about a miracle tool). After I shower but before I dry off, I use Neutrogena Body Oil all over. I let it soak in for a few seconds before drying myself with a towel.

I am definitely going to try dry brushing. It makes a lot of sense.

Have you tried dry brushing before? What are your thoughts on Cindy Crawford as a Beauty Muse?

Lets talk. Drop me a comment in the comment section below.

Thank you.

 

Beauty Muse: Sophie Okonedo

Sophie Okonedo has always been on my radar ever since I heard her name, her father is a Nigerian, and I am originally from Nigeria, so her name caught my attention. I am in awe of this beauty muse. Sophie Okonedo is a black, beautiful, and smart woman, and it is so rare to describe a woman like this these days. Say hello to a beauty with brains.

Sophie Okonedo Beauty Muse

 

Sophie Okonedo is a woman that keeps you guessing. She is 47 years old, and has achieved a lot in her life already. She is a very successful actress, currently has the lead role in the BBC TV series – Undercover. Do you watch it? The first season ends next week, and I am looking forward to the next season starting already. It is a great series to watch.

Sophie has received an OBE in 2010 Queens Birthday Honours. She has appeared in many movies and TV series like Hotel Rwanda, which she received an Oscar nomination for, Criminal Justice, The Secret Life of Bees, Skin, amongst many others. This beauty muse is currently at the peak of her acting career.

Sophie Okonedo also has her beauty game on. She looks nothing like her age and has had no help done, so no plastic surgery or enhancement whatsoever, and she looks amazing. She is one of those few women that I can confidently say is ageing gracefully. I think she looks better with age.

I admire Sophie’s natural kinky hair, and her golden flawless skin. She is the definition of exotic beauty; her confidence and carriage is impossible to resist. I would love to take a peep into her beauty and skin care routine, just to have an idea of how she maintains her look. However I do know a few things about her beauty routine; she has regular facials and would be lost without a spot cream and a mosituriser, and the beauty tip she dishes out freely is – ‘give up smoking’.
