My beauty secret is
that I never lose heart and joke a lot
I am involved in video promotion and at the age of fifty I dream of being a director like Balabanov. I believe that beauty is not a static state and it is not about appearance. I have such a "video vision" of beauty, it is revealed in movement, feeling. A handsome man is one in whom a thousand horses are rushing, who enters the room, and sparks fly from him. Well, not literally. For example, a man made a hut out of blankets, pillows and bedspreads, you look at him and think: “God! He is irresistible! " My beauty secret is that I never lose heart and joke a lot.
About plastic and youth
I carefully monitor my appearance, take care of myself and think that soon I will use more invasive methods - maybe I will do contour plastics or put on threads. While I look closely and choose, I figure out which is more effective. At the same time, I do not want to do plastic surgery that radically change facial features. In general, I think that youth, like beauty, is a subjective feeling. You can be a cool, cheerful old woman, or you can be a sad old man at the same thirty. In short, I believe that the main thing for youth and beauty is not the number of threads, but inner harmony.
About care and lifestyle
Every day I use peeling products, then apply tonic, serum, cream. I always sleep in a sleep mask. In the evening I use retinol, which renews the skin, then a filler cream for hydration and a serum for a radiant skin. I have creams and serums for all occasions and for any unclear situation. In general, taking care of your appearance is not only care, it is also a way of life. I have been keeping a food diary for a long time, which is helped by the 10levels app - thanks to it, I sincerely fell in love with broccoli and cottage cheese. I don’t do sports, I don’t have enough concentration, but I have an awesome set of sports rubber bands Rakamakafit, with which you can pump up your legs well.
About makeup and fragrances
I have a huge number of different makeup products, including atypical shades - I love to play with them. For example, I can use lipstick as eye shadow, eyebrow tint or liner. I have a large selection of glitter, eye shadow palettes in vibrant colors that I experiment with. Sometimes I throw beauty parties: my friends come to me, we paint each other, poking with brushes in the eyes, and pick up cool makeup.
What will be my image depends on my mood. Well, and from the appropriateness: with green eyebrows, I will not go to a business meeting. I am trusted by big budgets, and so far few people with green eyebrows seem reliable. At parties, my fantasy is not limited to anything: glitter, poisonous colors, cool bright eyeliners - everything goes into circulation. I'm interested in being different, creating something new every time. Of course, I also have palette sets for "natural" makeup - I use them to make a make-up for work. In general, I can leave the house without any problems and without makeup, because my trump card is my charisma.
I love the Byredo brand, I have about ten of them. I like to mix these perfumes with each other, to create my own scent. I especially love combinations in which you can feel rain, old books or the smell of fresh leather - these scents are not to everyone's taste, but they definitely suit me. Sometimes I choose perfume for other people: at first it often seems to them that it is not for them, but gradually they realize that I have guessed right.
