Beauty Muse: Sade Adu

I grew up listening to her songs – Sweetest Taboo, Smooth Operator, King of Sorrow, By Your Side, and her other hits. She has a very sultry, lovely voice and a very beautiful face. Say hello to my Beauty MuseSade Adu also known as Helen Folasade Adu.

They say beauty is in the eyes of the beholder. Well I say everyone beholds this beauty. This Nigerian born, Essex raised stunner is the definition of timeless beauty. She is one woman who does not seem to age one bit. She is one of the most beautiful women I have ever seen. And she has an equally beautiful voice. I could fall asleep just listening to her.

I love her amazing golden skin, her beautiful eyes, black silky hair, her eyebrows, and everything else. No one can wear a red lip as pretty as Sade. Even at almost 60, she can still give 21 year olds, a run for their money. This woman is beauty goals.

If I could be a fly on her wall, I would love to take a look into her bathroom cupboard, just to see what beauty products she swears by. I would also love to take a peep into her makeup bag as well. But since I can’t, I had to go digging for interviews online where she shared her beauty tips and secrets. And guess what? I found nothing.

Sade Adu is known for her privacy and zero interest in granting interviews so that could explain why I couldn’t find any beauty quote from her at all.

This is extremely rare for a successful singer, her career path is different but it worked and still works for her. And that is all that matters.

I will keep digging, maybe I will get lucky one day. But until then, we can only wonder.

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.

Have a lovely weekend.

 

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.
