Really get high on yourself
and your appearance
I started after thirty
About beauty and age
Self-care is actually my hobby. Something for which I will never regret money and time. Something that gives me genuine pleasure. Cosmetics are my adult toys and I never get bored of playing with them. I spend a lot of money on beauty salons, and this is the last thing I will give up. I do not do any supernatural procedures, but manicure, pedicure, epilation, eyebrow shaping and coloring, hair coloring and treatment, and occasional facial cleansing are my norm.
I largely adopted my attitude to appearance from my mother. She always dressed up and looked after herself and now, already in adulthood, she is graceful and graceful, she looks fifteen years younger for sure. Therefore, I have always had a good example. I am calm about age and the first signs of aging: I began to really get high on myself and my appearance after thirty. Has found that notorious harmony. Today there is nothing that I would like to change in myself.
About accepting yourself
In my youth, I had big problems with self-acceptance: I had everything from acne and dermatitis to weight problems. At the age of 20, I brought myself to exhaustion, eating only kefir, and then there was a rollback - uncontrolled gluttony followed by even greater fullness. No matter how trite it may sound, but that hackneyed "self-acceptance" is what radically changed everything for me. When I removed from my life everything that was not valuable to me, stopped doing what I didn’t like, and built everything the way I wanted it, regardless of the expectations of others, everything worked out by itself. In my case, it was closely related to global existential questions: why am I not living the way I would like, and what prevents me from making my life fully correspond to how I would like to live.
By education, I am an international economist, when I had an existential crisis, I worked for a large international corporation for six years and was engaged in PR. It sounds great, and it was so from the point of view of society and all the people significant to me. But I felt stifling about it. The feeling that I am operating with air masses and that without everything I do, I can easily do without, terribly oppressed me. I was haunted by a feeling of lack of freedom, that I do not live, but act out some socially approved scenario, but it is not mine, but my whole life is just a decoration of a successful life. In search of an answer to the question of what I want, I began to observe what I truly enjoy. And I caught myself on the fact that I really enjoy first of all from the process of applying makeup and creating hair. Without thinking twice, I quit my office and went to study at the theater and art as a make-up artist. And she became a make-up artist!
For a year and a half I worked as a freelancer - from film and television to screenings and photo shoots. In the process, I came to the conclusion that this topic was interesting to me primarily for myself, and life in the tumbleweed format is not entirely mine, and I need stability and something more practical. At that time, the first barbershop opened in Moscow, inspired by the aesthetics of this establishment, I realized that I wanted to be a barber girl. It was an inspiration. I found a place to learn barbering, and I fit into this topic at the dawn of its formation in Russia. Now, three years later, when barbershops have become mainstream, I am at the peak of the trend. I work in a barbershop, the only girl in the male team. I am a fan and a master of my craft.
Having changed everything in my life that I did not like, I changed outwardly - kilograms and skin problems were gone, I became all foldable and harmonious. Working in the office, I practiced Iyengar yoga for six years, went to retreats and workshops, jogged in the morning and even took part in races. But my body did not react in any way to the artificial load, and since I did all this with willpower and through resistance, there was practically no visual effect. Having eliminated any resistance from my life and starting to do everything only with a sincere desire, I left yoga and running together with the office - I still have an allergy to them. Now, instead of fitness, I have a job, I don’t think at all about what and how much I eat, I am guided only by my feelings, what and how much I want. I don't believe in diets. But I adhere to the idea that the body never lies.
About decorative cosmetics
I love decorative cosmetics - I have a whole suitcase of products and a lot of brushes. I am good at all this. I read beauty blogs, keep track of new products, before buying anything, I always conduct an investigation: I read reviews on the Internet, study Swatch, try in a store and only then decide whether I need it or not. Despite my love for cosmetics, I never buy too much. Since there is a specialized education, make-up or hairstyle of any complexity is not a problem for me. Transformation with the help of makeup remained my hobby: my sister is a photographer, and we often arrange photo shoots with her, so I practice my creativity.
As for the everyday look - I like to paint and do my hair, for me this is not an obligation, but a pleasure, therefore, as a rule, I am in parade or in full dress. I can afford to be careless, but it will be deliberate negligence - and even then, if I do not have important meetings and I am not at work. I have no complexes about my face without makeup, everything suits me, but I like it more with makeup. Plus, I look very young without makeup, so in order for the shape to match the content, I prefer to paint. Otherwise, schoolchildren get to know me on the street.
