The fabulous Issidora, a make-up artist to the stars, knows the secret to great, luminous skin, despite the irritations winter weather can bring. Here she shares some top tips on how to look fab the vintage way.
Many strive to achieve their ideal of beauty with the help of make-up, surgery, tucks, tweaks and injections, but this approach can fall short of expectations.
The sirens of the silver screen epitomised grace, beauty and elegance, and did so without ever having perfectly proportionate features, perfect hair, or button noses.
Of course, they had great make up, but more importantly, they knew that their true beauty came from within, from knowing, loving and accepting themselves. And that is, as simple as it may sound, the great secret of beauty.
For many, the journey to beauty is long and complicated and it starts with the simplest thing, learning to take care of your skin. Your skin is your biggest organ, and your face is constantly exposed to a number of damaging factors.
Apart from wind and rain, there’s a plethora of bacteria, pollution, UV and daily grime to withstand. The rest of your skin is mostly covered up, so the skin on your face really deserves some special care.
The state of your skin can easily give away a lot about your diet, or general well being. The good news is that there is a lot you can do about it. My own mother for example is, unfortunately, a smoker of 40 years, yet her skin looks fabulous. Not a wrinkle!
Admittedly, genes have something to do with it (and I thank her for them), but that’s not everything. Like generations of mothers and daughters she has taught me many things about taking care of my skin and I shall share these with you.
