Vanessa Williams has always been a beauty muse to me, right from when I was growing up. I think she has amazing features, and I have always admired her. She is also ageing beautifully before our very eyes, I still can’t get over the fact that she is in her fifties. I hope I look as good as she does when I am her age. This beauty muse is beauty goals in my eyes. I adore everything about her.

I remember her controversial beauty queen period (first black Miss America in 1983), and I loved how she stood tall from the drama, and went on to build a good career for herself. She is a strong beautiful woman.

I have always wanted to know more her skincare routine and beauty tips, so I was glad to find she shared some of them.

 

Her skincare routine 

I start my day with a glass of lemon water and an application of a skin repair serum, which helps restart the skin to its youthful radiance. My Re-Start Skin Repair Serum is a multi-purpose formulation that helps treat and protect skin against aging, stress, and harmful environmental elements. It leaves my skin feeling smooth and even and has exceptional ingredients to which I was introduced by specialists around the world.

 

I love the sound of her skincare routine.

 

Caring for the body for beauty

Staying hydrated is number one, especially for our skin. I am also a strong believer in exercise. I am obsessed with my Body Theory Drenched class and Zumba.

 

I am also a strong believer in exercise and hydration. I think they do wonders for her health, skin and state of mind.

Beauty Muse – Laila Ali

I love Laila Ali. I think she is the definition of a strong black woman; a real version of Superwoman, and I admire everything about her. I like the fact that she is not your regular girl next door beauty. She almost doesn’t come across a  beauty muse at first glance, but on closer look, Laila Ali is a true beauty, and 1 woman I won’t want to mess around with.

I snooped around to discover some of the 38-year-old beauty secrets , and was pleased to see Aquaphor as her go to beauty brand –

It’s really important to have a good moisturizer and a face cleanser. I try to use products that are as natural as possible without a lot of chemicals in them. One of the reasons why I started working with Aquaphor is because I was already a fan of the products. They are good for so many uses and it was a natural fit for me. I like to use Aquaphor for things that some people wouldn’t even think of. In the evenings after I get out of the shower, I will put it under my eyes because it’s so hydrating. I use my Aquaphor moisturizer on everything from my cuticles to my feet and it always works best when you just get out of the shower and it can really penetrate into your skin. It’s a very natural product and that’s another thing that I love about it. Aquaphor is definitely a must-have for me and for the kids.

I agree with Aquaphor being the holy grail of beauty. I have used the healing ointment for years, along with my kids, and it is one of the best moisturisers out there. It is great for dry skin conditions, and it leaves the skin looking and feeling moisturised, soft and smooth. I will be reviewing an Aquaphor product soon, so keep your eyes peeled.

Beauty Muse – Eva Green

The very successful actress – Eva Green is the Beauty Muse today on Fashion and Style Police, and she deserves the spot because she is so easy on the eyes. I love how different she looks – dark look, brunette, very pale skin, and mesmerizing blue eyes. She is the definition of Beauty and Brains.

I have always admired Eva Green; I like the fact that she is talented and beautiful in a very different way. She is not your regular girl next door which is great. I find beauties like her much more interesting to look at.

I am so into her signature look – dark eyes and red lips. She rocks it like no other and she looks amazingly beautiful in a fierce way. She is beauty goals!

Here are some beauty secrets she shared with Marie Claire awhile ago :

“I have a make-up artist who gives me beautiful smoky eyes for events, but when I have to do it myself, I focus on red lipstick with no mascara, and straight or tied-back hair. YSL Beauty does a tomato-orange matte lipstick that really stays put. I also love Nars Velvet Matte lip pencils because you don’t need to use a separate liner.”

“I hate spending too much time in the hairdressers, so I prefer quick treatments like the L’Oréal Professionnel Pro Fibre service [around £10-£15], which only takes about 15-minutes. My hair always feels thicker and healthier afterwards. I use the shampoo and conditioner at home to maintain it”.

I thought I was the only one who hated spending time at the hairdressers, but I am glad to know that I am not alone, Eva Green is with me, lol.

I hate spending time at the hairdressers, and that is one of the reasons why I have worn only wigs this year. I just don’t have the time and I find it exhausting.
