Ashley Graham Covers Harper’s Bazaar July 2017

Hey peeps! A new day, a new magazine cover. Today’s cover is all about the latest issue of Harper’s Bazaar, and Ashley Gralam is slaying on the cover.

I really like this magazine cover. It is a great shot and that beautiful smile is sure to attract thousands if not millions of eyeballs on the newsstands. I can’t wait to see it in flesh.

Ashley Gralam kind of looks like Eva Mendes on this magazine cover. I had to take another look to confirm it was really Ashley Gralam, and I am sure I am not the only one that would think that. Do you think both ladies look alike? I think they do.

I am a fan of anything Ashley Graham. I think she is a phenomenon woman and astonishing beauty. And I truly admire her.

Ashley Graham prefers to call herself a body activist, rather than a plus-size model – but labels are less important than her bold confidence and voluptuous curves, along with her campaigning message of female empowerment, self-acceptance and the compelling beauty of diversity.

On the subscriber’s cover, Ashley wears shirt by Marina Rinaldi, shorts by Good American, earrings her own. This is also photographed by Alexi Lubomirski.

One thing I really admire about Ashley is her carriage. I think she carries herself really well. She is the definition of a strong, beautiful and body confident woman.

Graham is a size 18, and proud of it. “I love my body,” she says. “When I look in the mirror, I see a woman who is strong and ambitious, satisfied with who she is,” she says.

This Harper’s Bazaar July issue is now available on the newsstands. Have you read it? Will you be reading it?

Beauty Muse – Eva Longoria

I have always admired Eva Longoria, right from her Desperate Housewives days. I mean, who didn’t love Gabrielle Solis? Eva Longoria looks as beautiful on the outside as she looks on the inside, a real Beauty Muse, I love her.

For a woman over 40 to look as good as she looks is beyond belief. She is blessed with some amazing genes, and the weirdest thing is that, she is looking even more beautiful as she grows older. I pray I look half as good as she does when I am 40.

I love everything about Eva Longoria. She is my definition of the ‘Perfect Looking Woman’. Her flawless golden skin, beautiful sparkly eyes, black silky hair and her very petite frame. Her body shape is my definition of ‘Pretty Cute’ and it looks amazing.

I was super curious about Eva’s beauty routine, so I took the liberty of researching her beauty tips and I discovered quite a few. Here are 3 of my favourites:

Her Biggest Beauty Secret

“Moisturising. Because I fly so much, hydration is important. When you have good skin, everything else kind of falls into place. Also, I use blush with shimmer in it. That way, your skin glows and people notice it.”

Her 3 Makeup Musthaves

“Firstly, mascara. Ever since doing the shoot for Million Lashes I have been addicted. I love the brush and the texture of the mascara. It’s not clumpy and is the blackest black. Then all I would need is a bronzer and some fresh water.”

Beauty Gadget Musthave

“Tweezers. I am obsessed with plucking my eyebrows. I always end up doing them on a plane at 30,000ft as the light is so good.”

I am intrigued by this beauty, there is something chilled out about her, and I love the fact that she is so relatable.

What do you think of her as a Beauty Muse? Drop me a comment, let’s chat.

Happy Tuesday.

 

 

 

The New Age of Beauty

The New Age of Beauty

New Hair Review

Beauty they say is in the eyes of the beholder. Every living being has their own definition of beauty. Some see beauty as anything natural, so minimal makeup, no hair extensions or weaves, no piercings or tattoos. Others see beauty as being skinny, no body hairs, full on makeup, hair extensions and weaves, tattoos, stylish pieces, fake boobs, fake butt, fake tan and anything fake, flashy or over the top

I see beauty differently. When I look at a beautiful woman, I see –

Brains – This is so major for me. Beauty and brains go hand in hand, I have zero tolerance for anyone who lacks in the intelligence department.

Flattering makeup.

Flattering hair extensions and weaves (if needed).

A healthy BMI – This is another major quality for me.

Good dentition – pearly whites are so easy on the eye.

Smooth/spotless skin.

No tattoos whatsoever – I thank God I did not go ahead with my teenage dream of having a tattoo. I would have had to visit a Tattoo Removal Clinic in my twenties, when I saw the light.

I find that my beauty qualities change as I grow older. Some qualities that would have made my teenage list, when I was like 13, or even 18, like being 6 feet tall and having an hour-glass shape, definitely do not make my list now that I am almost 30, and I am sure more qualities will come on and off my list in my forties and fifties.

I am 100% certain, that beauty will continue to evolve, and  that society will continue to dictate what we call beautiful, with the Bimbos and others continuously shoved in our faces everyday, if we allow it. I don’t, I live my by own rules, and when I see beauty, this is what I see:

BEYONCE

I admire the fact that Beyonce is beauty and brains combined. She is a strong, hard-working woman, and so beautiful.

Nicole Scherzinger

I love her stunning features. She is a true natural beauty. She rolls out of bed looking GLAM.

Gwen Stefani

This woman does not seem to age. She looks exactly like how she looked 10 years ago and that is what I call a BEAUTY.

Genevieve Nnaji

This effortless African beauty is the truth. She reminds me of Queen Bey, beauty and brains here as well. I adore her.

Eva Longoria

I still cannot believe that Eva Longoria is in her 40s. Beauty goals right here. She can easily pass for a 28-year-old.
