I guess you all know that I adore Nadine, she is so simple yet she upholds herself very well. Simple but when you look at her you will be very stunned with her beauty. On the other hand, as I posted in Mary Anne’s Musings, I finally bought the “Team Real Book“. Here is some of Nadine’s beauty artist ‘beauty rule’.
Always clean your face before applying anything. Then, rub ice all over to reduce the appearance of pores.
Even if you have oily skin, you still need to use moisturizer. Just pick one that is oil free so it doesn’t leave your skin greasy. Brightening concentrates/serums also help reveal your natural glow. You can even mix it with foundation for a luminous complexion.
Choose multi-functional products, like a cleanser, makeup remover and toner in one. This will cut down time spent on your skincare and makeup routine.
For more tips, buy the ‘Team Real’ book of Jadine, I can assure you, it’s worth every penny.
Fragrance captures the essence of a cultural moment as much as clothing and music do. The sense of smell triggers memories more strongly and immediately than the other senses. Therefore, it is no wonder that people become majorly attached to their favorite perfumes, often continuing to wear the same ones even as they move through different clothing styles.
Perhaps the most iconic perfume of all time is Chanel No. 5. Famously worn by Marylin Monroe, the fragrance embodies beauty and glamor. Though it smells a bit mature by today’s standards, it was known for its sense of fun at the time of its release. Chanel No. 5 is a deliberately and obviously artificial floral that is finished with a huge dollop of soft powder. Its over-the-top femininity evokes the last years of Hollywood’s golden age, the last moments before fashion loosened up and style ceased to be classic.
Calvin Klein’s CK One is beloved precisely because it represents a rejection of traditional femininity and prettiness. Positioned as a unisex scent, CK One captured the attitude of the early ’90s. It is clean, sharp and utterly unfussy. It was the ideal fragrance for a cultural moment known for its lack of interest in cultivated style.
Fruity florals have been the most popular type of fragrance for the past 15 years, and Calvin Klein once again created a singular representation of an era in popular culture. It is sweet and practically edible, but it has a spicy core that distinguishes it from other fragrances in this genre. Its richness gives it a womanly edge that much of the decidedly teen-oriented fruity floral competition does not have. A Euphoria perfume set is still a great gift all these years later due to the enduring appeal of this fresh, subtly provocative scent.
Interestingly, today’s most beloved perfumes are best appreciated when contextualized in collections. Maison Margiela’s Replica line recreates specific locations, like a jazz club in Brooklyn, a warm beachfront or a Parisian flower market. Derek Lam’s line captures the energy of different New York City districts. Nest’s scents are inspired by paintings of flowers but are not rote olfactory facsimiles of the images. They are layered, complex interpretations of what the flowers represent and how they contrast with the other creations on the collection.
In all of these instances, perfume comes to say something important about how people treat the notion of style. Whether traditional prettiness or fringe abstraction is the flavor of the day, some genius perfume developer will figure out how to communicate those ideas through the sense of smell.
I procrastinate, no doubt about that. But I hope since I already started this I should be motivated on making it to the end at least for this month. I didn’t have the belt at all, it was gone I nearly lose hope but since I am so agitated to start doing the Zumba on Wii. I was able to find a way. The binder that I had after I delivered Faith is just sitting in the corner, it is not set I don’t the other part but I am sure this will fit to serve as my belt for my Zumba. I hope to be motivated to do these at all times with no absent at all.
Every one of us would like to look beautiful in the eyes of others. And most of us women would spend countless times in front of the mirror, fixing our hair and putting some make ups on. There are times that we also spend countless times to redo and undo our looks. But none of us have a clue that we are the one who makes ourselves beautiful. I mean aside from putting make ups it is still up to us to look impressive to others. You see we don’t actually needs those make ups, eye shadows, blush on and some others. If we are confident of what we wear, if we know how to make it more beautiful, then we are pretty as well. If you feel like you are, then flaunt. Do not care at all of what they say as long as you say it to yourself I am pretty and whatever I have, I am proud of it.
