Beauty Muse – Celine Dion

The woman with the most incredible voice; Celine Dion is the Beauty Muse for the month of November 2020! I adore this woman. My teenage years were filled with me singing along with her greatest hits (and I still do that). One of my favourite songs of hers is My Heart Will Go On. That song and the movie Titanic were the center of my love life growing up. Her voice is simply heavenly and her fashion sense gives me so much style inspiration. You can check out her style icon feature here. Celine Dion is also a beauty to behold and she is aging gracefully. I like that she hasn’t had a lot of work done on her face. She looks real and fab, that sometimes I forget she is over 50!

Here are some of Celine Dion’s beauty secrets –

“I like to put a light concealer under the eyes to open my gaze, a little bit of powder to fix it and a touch of a brow pencil to balance my face.”

A light concealer under the eyes opens the eyes even more. Adding some powder and a brow pencil will really balance the face out. These steps are great for when you want to wear your makeup light. I do this on most days now. I just need to find the time to sort my eyebrows out. They are currently in a not so good state.

Dion also swears by a simple skincare routine and no makeup artists. She does her makeup by herself and I was really surprised to discover that. Apparently, she fell in love with applying her own makeup in the early days when she couldn’t afford a makeup artist, and now that she can afford any makeup artist she wants, she still prefers to do her own makeup. She says –

“I just know my own face so well, and I actually really enjoy doing it.”

What do you think of this five-time Grammy award-winning artist as a Beauty Muse? Are you a fan of her music, style, or beauty tips?

 

Beauty Muse: Cardi B

Cardi B is the beauty muse of the month. This successful singer/rapper is slaying not just music and fashion, but beauty as well. Her skin is so flawless and her makeup is always so perfect. I am not a huge fan of her social media platforms or her music, but I do admire her as a beauty muse. Cardi B is beauty goals all day, every day.

Many may find Cardi B a little too much in everything. Her makeup is sometimes a lot and she does look like a handful. But I think she is a natural beauty. I have seen many photos and videos of her with little or no makeup, and she looks even more beautiful. I would love to be a fly on her wall to check out her daily skincare routine. It won’t surprise if it was nothing outside the ordinary. She is one of those beauties that is just blessed in the beauty department.

Here are some bits of Cardi B’s skincare routine as told by her makeup artist – Erika:

To start with, I gently wash Cardi’s face and then thoroughly dry her skin with a light towel. I always use a gentle cleanser like a Hydrating Gel Cleanser instead of a harsh exfoliant before makeup application. Once the skin is prepped properly, I start applying the makeup.

Drying the face lightly with a soft towel is really important. You don’t want to be too hard on your face. Also, using a good cleanser is really important. I have fallen in love with this new natural face cleanser, and my skin is thanking me for it. It is important to pay attention to the skincare products you use.

The Benefits of Aloe Vera on the Skin

Aloe Vera is a miracle wonder plant. I love it so much! It is just amazing. I have used Aloe Vera on and off for many years now, and I am always blown away by how effective it is. Back then, I extracted the gel directly from the plant and applied it straight to my hair. I did that for years and my hair was so healthy. It is one of those natural ingredients I have always enjoyed using. I am gradually incorporating more and more natural products into my life, and Aloe Vera is one of my current favourites.

I started using Aloe Vera on my hair to help it stay healthy. I have also recently started using it on my skin and it has changed my skin for the better. Aloe Vera has been so good to my skin that I can’t imagine not using it anymore. I am currently using this Aloe Vera Moisturising Lotion by Forever Living and it is so good. You can read the full review of the lotion if you missed the product review post.

The Benefits of Aloe Vera on the Skin

Here are the top 5 benefits of Aloe Vere on the skin –

Soothes sunburn

Aloe Vera is great for soothing sunburn because it has cooling properties and is anti-inflammatory. It is a natural remedy for sunburn and helps heal the skin quickly.

Moisturises the skin

It works great as a skin moisturiser. It can be tricky to apply since it usually does not absorb into the skin quickly. However, once it is applied properly, it leaves the skin moisturised and hydrated. It also unclogs the pores and leaves the skin soft and supple.

Fights anti-ageing

Aloe Vera creams and lotions work great for dealing with signs of ageing. The products leave you looking younger by reducing and preventing signs of skin ageing.

Lightens blemishes

Aloe Vera gradually lightens blemishes on the skin. I have noticed a massive difference on my skin since I started using this Aloe Vera Moisturising lotion.

Reduces acne

Another great benefit of Aloe Vera is that it reduces acne. The antimicrobial properties in it treat the pimples. It is also antiseptic, which also helps. Aloe Vera also works as an astringent that helps reduce the size of pores, gets rid of excess sebum, microbes, and dirt.
