There are certain things in life a Jewish woman can go without and some a Jewish woman simply just cannot.
Imagine one is stranded on a beautiful dessert Island with the man of your dreams. My personal choice would be the younger Andy Garcia or George Clooney. I am not fussy either man will do . Take note I have not selected a younger hunkier man. remember poor Demmi now that is another entire article for another time
As the owner of one of London's premier dating agencies and fashion styling makeover business. I know how important it is for women to look and feel good from the inside out. Over the years I have created looks and styles for various people from all walks of life, including my last fashion show in Mayfair for Vogues fashion night out at London's Folli Follie boutique displaying their beautiful range of jewellery as featured in Vogue magazine.
Looking good is also a state of mind feel good about yourself and optimum looking fabulous begins from the inside. Ensure you get enough sleep drink plenty of fluids. No not gin, water is the best choice drink 2.5 litres per day, and Exercise at least 3 times per week including a minimum of 20mins cardiovascular exercise each time. Don’t forget to stretch before and after working out. Eat a healthy diet, no no no we know grandma's brisket looks and smells good but this should be a treat. Lean white meats and fish are best. Oily fish is the best for anti ageing
There are actual anti ageing foods and basic supplements to take to prevent wrinkles. I offer an anti ageing 10year makeover.
Preparing for your date. Cleanse with Lancomes new cleanser exfoliate with clinique exfoliator use Boots Mudd masque and then a moisture masque. If your skin is pale use some fake tan Lancaster face and body tan. in my opine far better than st Tropez.
Make up Use a good foundation the best anti ageing foundation is Christian Dior, use on the eyelids to create a good base for eyeshadow.for a younger skin Mac is excellent and the best concealers for deep circles and blemishes Laura Mercier. and for lighter blemishes or dark circles use Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat £24.50 For age spots and birth marks Derma Blend
Christian Dior have excellent lasting eyeshadows from single palletes up to 5 palletes. Also try Estee Lauder wonderful colours. Blue eyes use brown colours to make your eyes pop and green hazel eyes mauves and anything in that family. Whatever eye colour you have you will need to use the opposite colour.if you are on a budget try Rimmel they have an excellent selection of eyeshadows and are long lasting . They also have one of the best liquid black eyeliners.
Before applying mascare use She mura eyelash curlers, Estee lauder primer and Lancome Mascara.
Set your make up with powder for a matte finish Lancome, for a soft silky finish try creme de la mer powder . or the body shops own brand. When applying powder either apply in a circular motion all over the face or apply brushing down then up and down again,
Blusher mature skins should always use a creme blush. you could use a lipstick as blush but you will only need a tiny dab. Dior have good colours and Clinique have some nice colours also.
Powder blushers I like Dior Lancome and Mac.
Best anti ageing serums Estee Lauder and creme de la mer, Shishedo sun protection factor and creme de lar mer face cream. Elizabeth Arden all products in the prevage range are excellent,
Beauty on a budget Sophia Loren swears by Virgin olive oil.. you can add this to your bath with some other scented oils or just some regular bath salts. Oiive oil will remove all make up easily. just remember to use a good toner afterwards to remove the residue. However apply virgin olive oil or pure natural vitamin e to your skin at night before you face cream. le avenue sold in boots is rich and nourishing
Perfume to make you fragrance last longer layer the skin by using bath products in the same range. One of the least expensive ways of doing this is by purchasing the body spray the french word ( deodorant) or savon soap.
