Beauty Muse: Cece Winans

The lovely and talented Priscilla Marie Winans Love known professionally as Cece Winans is the Beauty Muse for this month. For those who do not know, Cece Winans is singer, songwriter, author, talk show host, and actress. I have been a huge fan of her for many decades now. Her music is forever playing on my Spotify Gospel playlist. My favourite track of hers is Mercy Said No! The track reminds me of my spiritual life every time I listen to it.

Cece Winans has one of the most beautiful faces I have ever seen. Her skin is flawless, her hair is always gorgeously made and her facial features are so striking. This woman has not aged a bit. It looks like she is ageing backwards. She is 56 years old but she looks way younger than that.

Beauty Muse: Cece Winans

I would love to be a fly on her wall so I can spot how she takes care of her skin. I won’t be too surprised to find that she doesn’t do anything out of the ordinary skincare routine. Most of the time, women that look this good at her age are just naturally blessed. Her interview with blackgospel.com confirmed my suspicions. Cece Winams was asked to share some of her beauty secrets, here is an except from the interview:

Well, I think beauty comes from within. I really do. I do laugh a lot. Even through rough times you’ve got to learn how to laugh. You have to find the joy. I really enjoy life, and I appreciate all that God has done. I would say that my relationship with God refreshes me every day. We all go through challenges but Jesus proves himself to be a wonderful Lord and Savior. So my faith is number one. You have to have your priorities straight.
And then other than that, washing your face and putting Vaseline on it. Nothing fancy. My mom to this day washes her face with Vaseline on it. It’s like, ‘’Wow, mom. If I can have a skin like yours when I get to your age, I would be doing good.’’ Just keep the things simple. I think women are so hard on themselves. We have to learn to really appreciate who God has made us to be, complement one another and laugh. 

I can tell she laughs a lot. She is usually laughing in her photos. I love the Vaseline tip as well.

What do you think of Cece Winans? Do you like her as a Beauty Muse? Are you a fan of her music?

Prepare Your Skin Beforehand 

Simply waking up after a long night of slumber is not sufficient preparation for a good face of makeup, as you must wash your skin as a bare minimum before you even think about applying your foundation. Adopting a skincare routine can be a brilliant way to get your face ready for your makeup, improving the staying power of each product by creating the best surface for application. Start off by using a face wash or cleanser that removes excess oil and dirt that clogs up your pores, and follow this with a good toner that can get rid of any leftover product. Find a suitable light moisturiser that can look after your skin without being too rich and heavy, and explore different primers that are tailor-made to prep your skin before makeup application. 

Find The Right Products For You

Just because a product is popular amongst your friends, it doesn’t mean that this product will suit your skin. Every person is different and will require their own unique makeup bag, so you must experiment with a little trial and error in order to find the right products for you. Foundation is one of the most important aspects of your makeup bag that you have to source, and there are so many different colours and shades available on the market today.

It’s a good idea to explore different providers to identify the best match for your skin tone, as you can view a range of foundation colors at DoseofColors.com in just a few easy taps. You may wish to order a tester pot before purchasing an entire container of a new product, as this way you can test how it will react with your skin, as well as assessing the colour and quality. 

Practice Makes Perfect 

Giving up on makeup after a couple of failed attempts at smoky eyeshadow is such a bad mistake to make, as practice makes perfect when it comes to makeup application. Utilising makeup videos and advice and regularly testing out your skills is the best way to learn, and you’ll notice a huge difference in your ability after just a few months of committed application! 

Perfecting your makeup application has never been so simple when you can take the time to make the most of the brilliant steps that have been detailed above.

What will be needed to perform a hybrid manicure?

To properly care for your nails and perform a careful hybrid manicure, you need to stock up on some necessary cosmetics and accessories. You can find most of them at, for example, https://roxiecosmetics.co.uk/ or at your local drugstore.

You will need:

• UV lamp, which is the basis for making a hybrid manicure,
• Wooden sticks and nippers – they will be used to remove and cut the cuticles,
• A nail file and a polishing pad, thanks to which we will give the nails the desired shape and matte their plate,
• Cleaner, i.e. a liquid used to clean and degrease the nail plate,
• Dust-free swabs, which are helpful in cleaning the plate,
• Base for hybrid varnishes – it is applied before applying the varnish layer,
• Hybrid varnish – a colored varnish which, when applied to the nail plate, hardens under the lamp,
• Top – a cosmetic that is applied at the end of styling to give the painted nails a glow or matt effect.

Hybrid manicure – how to prepare?

At the very beginning, you need to pay attention to your cuticles around the nail. To make it easier to remove them, it is worth pushing them away with a wooden stick and then cutting them out with pliers. In the next step, use a file to give your nails the desired shape, e.g. almond or square. Then, polish the nail plate with a polishing block. Now all you have to do is rinse them with a cotton pad soaked in a cleaner and the nails are ready for painting.

How to paint nails with hybrid varnishes?

The first stage of painting is to apply a colorless base on the nail plate. This should be done carefully so as not to splash the cuticles. It is also important to secure the so-called free edge of the nail, thanks to which the varnish will last longer on the nails. When all nails are covered with the base, we need to harden them under a UV lamp for approx. 45 seconds.

The next step is to paint the nails with hybrid varnish. Here again, we have to show great precision and accuracy. After painting, harden the nails under the lamp for approx. 60 seconds and apply a second layer, which we harden again. The last step is to apply the top coat on the nails – this layer is also hardened under a UV lamp.
