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. Also, it is important you don’t neglect your lashes while prepping your skin. You can make use of a good eyelash serum to keep your lashes fuller and thicker. 

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.

Hair. It’s the difference between a great day and a rubbish one. Whether we like it or not, our hair transforms the way we look. From outlandish and bold to subtle and chic; long or short; light or dark; tied up or loose and long. Changing up the style and colour of your hair is one of the surefire ways to get your mojo back – it’s a tried and true mood-booster! Sometimes, though, we reach a frustrating dead-end when finding solutions for our hair’s health.

All hair products tell us that our hair will feel amazing, incredible, revolutionized, and unreal when we use them – but the truth is, this is rarely the case. Finding the right products that suit your style and type of hair and actually make a difference, is really hard. Some people spend years trying different brands and products before they have that eureka moment! The way our hair looks can greatly affect how we feel day-to-day, therefore everyone deserves to have the best-looking hair they could imagine.

Hair loss or hair thinning

This is a tough one. Although baldness and hair loss is most common in men and is usually genetic, hair loss and hair thinning are also very common problems for women. Losing your hair can come down to many things, including stress, hormones, illness, malnutrition or simply genetics. Whatever the reason, hair loss can result in a person feeling self-conscious and unhappy about the way they look.

There are ways to cope with hair loss, however. Investing in hair transplants seems like an extreme measure, but in fact, it isn’t. Hair transplanting is a fantastic resource for those who want to make a real change to their appearance. Our modern world has made it easier than ever to reverse hair loss; take the opportunity and make the change for yourself. 

Damaged, broken hair

Anyone who’s ever bleached their hair will know this struggle. It’s true, blondes do have more fun – until it’s time to try and repair the damage done. Although there are now safe ways to bleach your hair which minimise damage, the fact of the matter is that lightening your hair is brutal on its structure. Bleaching your hair breaks down its pigment, hence the lightening effect – but it also all but destroys its molecular structure.

If you’re someone who might have been a little trigger-happy with the bleach, you might have run out of ideas to fix those broken strands. One simple and cheap way to repair your hair is to use a coconut oil mask. This simply means taking your dry hair, unwashed, and coating it from root to tip in pure coconut oil. Your hair will feel like a ball of grease – that’s how you know it’s working. Wrap your hair tightly in a hair wrap or towel and pin it, then sleep overnight with your hair in the oil. In the morning, shampoo your hair twice and condition it as normal. Your hair will feel better than it has in years!
