Awhile ago I was working on a job at the casino and I struck up a conversation with the porter who was helping schlep my numerous bags up to the room we were working out of. He told me he was working there to support himself while he studied. So I asked him what he was studying and he told me plastic surgery! Perfect opportunity to pick his brains about the process :) I told him - half jokingly - that I might be needing his number in afew years and he looked at me and said "yes, you could do your eyes and it would take 10 yrs off" . Funnily enough my sagging eyelids were something that didn't really bother me it was more the sagging jawline that did, so was not sure whether to feel offended or not! Anyway I asked him what was the best anti-aging regime you could do to avoid having to commit to the knife and he said..... ice water on the face. Apparently it tightens the pores and helps keep sagging muscles firm, and another thing he mentioned was that it kills bacteria on the skin.
I have been a makeup artist for over 20 yrs and am passionate about beauty and helping women to look the best they possibly can. I believe that women are beautiful at any age , and being older myself, am constantly on the look out for products that will help the skin retain its glow and beauty. From a very young age I have paid attention to my skin and have always gone looking for new, innovative - or even tried and true products that make a difference. I take inspiration from my friends and women I meet in my work. These women are the reason I started this blog , so that I can pass on my knowledge and help women to keep looking, and feeling amazing . I love finding new looks that inspire and you can adapt to your own style . I am also a mum with 3 boys which keeps my life very busy ... and never dull as anyone who knows me will attest to! All items posted on this blog are chosen because I have personally tried them and like them. I hope you find something here that you will love and will work for you.
