Beauty Muse: Elizabeth Taylor

Hey Beauty Lovers! It is a new week and I am loving the amazing sunny weather we are currently experiencing. The first post of this week is all about the Beauty Muse of the month. The beautiful icon – Elizabeth Taylor is the Beauty Muse for the month of September. I have always admired this woman. She was one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood. Her beauty was on a whole different level with the amazing facial features and stunning hair. Elizabeth Taylor is definitely a beauty muse all day, everyday. Do you agree?

Beauty Muse: Elizabeth Taylor

One of the things I really loved about Elizabeth Taylor is that she aged beautifully and naturally, which was a lovely sight to behold, in comparison with some other celebrities who have tried to fight Mother Nature.

Here are some Elizabeth Taylor’s best kept beauty secrets:

She did her own makeup

I found it very interesting to discover that Elizabeth Taylor applied her own makeup on and off screen. Her makeup always looked lovely so she must have been very talented.

“When I was younger, for a long time I didn’t wear any make-up in films; when I did start to wear make-up, I always did it myself,” she once said.

Elizabeth Taylor didn’t like conditioners

This beauty muse did not like conditioners. She felt conditioners made her hair too sleek and she preferred the bouncy look. Thankfully, with the advancement in haircare products, there are so many options for hair conditioners, ladies with bouncy hair don’t have to worry about dealing with a too sleek look.

This Beauty Muse loved drugstore brands

Elizabeth Taylor loved affordable skincare brands. Her favourite was Jergens and she used the lotion religiously.

Charities of the month: IDAS and The Children’s Charity

Hello everyone! This month, Fashion and Style Police is featuring two amazing charities. Whoop whoop!!

IDAS

The first is IDAS; a domestic violence charity in Yorkshire. IDAS stands for Independent Domestic Abuse Services. The charity was set up in 1977 and previously known as York Women’s Aid. IDAS is one of the first refuge providers in the UK and it all started in 2 bedroom flat donated by a local businessman in 1977. The charity has grown over the years and it now also covers other areas outside York. IDAS is the largest specialist charity in Yorkshire and the charity supports victims of domestic violence and sexual violence.

IDAS is doing an amazing job. No one should have to any form of violence, so it is great to see a charity supporting victims and survivors of domestic violence and sexual abuse. You can support the charity by giving here. Donations go a long way in helping those who need a place safe away from violence. You can also look at supporting IDAS by getting involved in voluntary work.

The Children’s Society

The second charity of the month is The Children’s Society. It is a national charity working hard to transform the lives of young victims of abuse, exploitation and neglect. The charity has been around for over 140 years and won’t stop until every child’s hope is alive. I think The Children’s Society is an amazing charity doing great things for the next generation. The vision is a society built for every child and their goal is:

By 2030 we will have overturned the damaging decline in children’s well-being, setting a path for long lasting growth.

Fashion Tips from Fashion Icon – Iris Apfel

Fashion Tips from Fashion Icon – Iris Apfel

Here are three of my favourite fashion tips from Iris Apfel:

Dress to please yourself

This is a great tip. Many times we are carried away with the styles in vogue, that we forget to dress for ourselves and not for social media or the public. It is nice to know what styles are trending just incase you like them, but the first thing to have in mind when playing dress up is to dress to please yourself. That way you will step out feeling confident and comfortable.

Explore fashion

This is another fab tip. To create your own signature look, you need to explore what is out there. I love exploring fashion by trying new styles and pieces to see how they fit into my personal style. As a fashion blogger, it also allows me to try out new trends. Exploring fashion is a great way to discover likes and dislikes.

Go for signature pieces

Iris Apfel is known as the Queen of Accessories, and you just need to Google her to find out why. This fashion icon wears a lot of accessories and she makes them work. I would love to see her accessories collection. I bet she has loads.

When it comes to investing in my wardrobe, I spend a little more on signature pieces that would send the test of time. I like to spend a little on accessories, especially hand bags. Going for signature pieces allow you create the perfect capsule wardrobe.

Here is me wishing Iris Apfel a fantastic birthday for tomorrow. 100 years on this planet is something and she looks like simply gorgeous. Happy birthday to the Queen of Accessories.
