Beauty Muse – Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey being a Beauty Muse should come as no surprise. I think she is a drop dead beauty, who doesn’t seem to age at all. If anything, she seems to look younger every time I spot a photo of her.

Mariah Carey is a flawless beauty! I know she has had plastic surgery done a couple of times, and that may explain her near perfect features. Whatever she did looks amazing, and I like the fact that she owns it.

You should all know how I feel about plastic surgery and general body enhancements. I have written a few times about cosmetic surgery on the blog. I have nothing against them, as long as they are done tastefully and safely, and as long as you own it!

I wrote about Mariah Carey’s ex -husband – Nick Cannon, some days ago, and how I am rooting for them to get back together. I really hope they do get back together, they look so good as a couple, and their twins are so cute!

Anyways, back to the Mariah Carey being a Beauty Muse; I have always wanted to know more about Mariah’s beauty regime and her beauty secrets if any. In my search, I came across her best beauty tips in one of her interviews with Vogue, which has now been bookmarked for future reference.

Here are some of her tips you may find interesting –

Less is more

“I hate mascara. I never wear it,” she has said. “Whenever a makeup artist tries to put it on me, I throw a fit.” A clear penchant for faux lashes notwithstanding, this means that “if you’re not wearing a lot of makeup, you don’t have to take a lot of it off. So, my goal is to wear the least amount of makeup possible so I don’t have to steam my face and take it all off.”

 

I can see how this is a great beauty secret. The more makeup we have on, the more time and energy will be required to take it off. And most times, our skin tends to hurt from all the makeup removing. Especially if the makeup is long lasting, which is all well and good until it is time to wipe it off.

No carbs, embrace cardio

You would hate my diet,” she has said. “All you eat is Norwegian salmon and capers. That’s it. I try to stick with the proteins. It’s the worst.”

Don’t eat salad if you’re about to do, like, a photo shoot, because it bloats you,” warns Carey. “Never eat the water.”

Now I understand why how she has an amazing figure. I wish I could live on eating proteins alone.
