Ahem. I’m getting back to the business of beauty today — yes, straight up, old-fashioned, beauty as in beauty products! By visiting over on No More Dirty Looks, where they’ve been doing this fun series grilling people about their beauty routines and posting all of the details. It’s weirdly addictive and fascinating to read how other people cleanse themselves (dry brushing? this is apparently a thing we’re doing now?), so naturally, I assume you’ll be equally fascinated to read such details about moi.
Especially if you’ve been Beauty Schooling for awhile now, and recall when I first took stock of my beauty labor before and during beauty school. (Need a refresher? You can find those posts here, here, here and here.) Consider this the one year post-beauty school look… in some ways I’ve become a ginormous slacker again (makeup!) but some changes (money spent on skincare products!) definitely stuck.
Oh and why yes, that is Audrey Hepburn pictured above because Siobhan asked me who my beauty icon was, and well, that’d be her.
Except of course then I had to get all weird and explain to Siobhan that when I say beauty icon, I don’t mean “person I want to look like,” because hello, restrictive beauty standards and broadening the definition and all that jazz… I more mean, “person I really enjoy looking at and thus, am very happy existed so we can enjoy her beauty.” And poor Siobhan was like, “Right, I just wanted to run a fun old movie star picture, so…”
Note to self: Sometimes, the soap can just stay in the box. Except — ha! — I don’t even use soap, as you’ll learn when you go read about my whole morning routine here.
