BEAUTY BY S
Beauty is individual and embracing myself inside and out is key to my happiness. I have struggled with self image issues my whole young life mainly because I looked different than all the girls at my highs cool. My shape was more curvy, my hair was curly and I was born in Croatia so I was always told I looked exotic or different. At the time I grew up in my small Southern California town it was not too integrated with kids of different cultures so there was a mold of girl that was classic Orange County and that was not me. Today I am confident with myself and in my unique look and find ways to accentuate that. Even though I love makeup it is because I like to look and feel pretty. To me pretty varies day to day from none, to some to full glam. I am a woman and I am complex, so should be my makeup kit.
SKINCARE by S
Another strong woman in my life is why I love all things beauty. My mom has no desire to age, but since that is not up to her she has decided to fight father time with all her 5'1" might. She spends a lot of time on her beauty regiments and taking care of her skin both topically and from inside out. Eating well helps but don't mistake that good products and daily routine make a ton of difference.
My grandmother on my moms side had fabulous olive complexion and now that I look back her skin was like mine more toward oily. She aged but never had deep set wrinkles or lack of skin elasticity. My mom I can see has inherited that and as I age I think I have too. All through my early years I hated having oily skin but now I am so happy I do for aging reasons but of course I blot 10 minutes after applying makeup. I shine like a diamond and that is not always a good thing
