I’m neither complete dull nor a teenager insecure about my appearance.
And to be honest – if I look at the two pictures – this should be forbidden.
There are so many youngsters out there who have already weird idols and opinions caused mainly by media as I don’t think it should be worsened.
Who on earth is able to recognize them if they stand in front of you?

Stick to what you are, instead of trying to improve pictures it may be a consideration to go out and meet friends, work out, eat healthy, etc…

Nobody is perfect!

Can you please grow old with grace?

Can you please grow old with grace?

I have the feeling as if the world around me is getting more and more insane.
As soon as I open the web, a magazine, the TV and sometimes even the front door I see false faces.
Who ever made a law that women past 30 aren’t allowed anymore to have small wrinkles around their eyes or normal lips?
What I’m wondering is, do they like what they find each morning in their mirror?
Questions which are answered with “No, I just drink lots of water and eat healthy, there was nothing done to my face, honestly!” – sure, and I’m living on the moon.

I don’t like to drink plain water but therefore lots of different teas and yes, also the scary brownish fluid called coffee, may this be the reason for the wrinkles around my eyes? Definitely no! I live and I love and I laugh!!!
I fortunately get older each year. Oh, and I mean each year, I’m not celebrating my 29th birthday for the sixth time in a row.
Don’t get me wrong, I love to look beautiful and I’m almost addicted when it comes to new creams, oils, etc. (mmhh, I’m lazy with eye cream) but if I see needles or even surgery knifes near to a face I run as fast as I can. I’m a coward, I know. These surgeries for sure don’t hurt. It’s just like buying new shoes, isn’t it?
The cruel part is that you can get the idea of “easy done” when you see all these perfect faces (which in reality remind me of the rocky horror picture show).
Aren’t they scared of mistakes, reactions to narcotics, a loose hand of a surgeon who worked 48 hrs in a row? I would be and in the same way I would be scared of the result.
Will I be able to recognize myself afterwards or do I look like a brand new person?

Thanks, that I don’t have to answer as I won’t do something to my face but I’m sure I would miss the stories it’s telling. My husband has many expressions of my face he loves (tired, laughing loudly, looking scared) and some he dislikes (no, I never look at him in an angry way even if he’s saying so…).
Just imagine what a loss it would be when I turn up with a stiff face – no movement visible.
And lips is also a topic which is scaring me. If the whole face seems to be just lips and more important, their sensitivity. Lips belong to the most sensitive parts of a human and it’s just taken to have one rubber hose above another? Isn’t that insane?
Not to mention want can be done besides the face…sitting has to be hard for some for a couple of weeks when the inlays are new.

Why are woman doing that?!?

There is always a ‘behind the scenes’ and I would say it’s first of all a big lack of self confidence. Whatever this comes from, a deep look into oneself would be better than trying to hide insecurities or scars behind a mask.

Other reasons could be to follow the crowd, like in childhood – eeeeeveryone has this, mummy, I neeeeed that too!!!! I’m happily swimming against the crowd then.

Or to get closer to ideal faces you find in commercials as the for sure NEVER went through photoshop!!! Just check some Facebook profiles from teenager, they already know with Instagram and several other apps how to look as if they just turned twenty five with no spots on their skin and sleek hair. The problem is just that you won’t recognize them in real life.

Could men be a reason? I’m not entirely sure about men – there are men who love these masks but hopefully the majority still loves real beauty.

But the main point is, for whom am I doing something and for me it’s in first place myself. Sure I like to be pretty for my husband but if I ask him he states, I love you how you are, if you just stood up in the morning or put make up for whatever, it’s you.
That’s one of the most important points.
You can do as much as you want but beauty means more than the face, it means attitude, authenticity, charisma, radiation, aura, inner feelings and so on – all these will shop up on your face and in your eyes.
The majority of these lifted, unreal, I-want-to-be-perfect women have one thing in common – dead eyes. What I mean is their eyes are blank, emotionless, the sparkle is missing and they do not glow.

For sure these are all extremes and to be natural, authentic and real doesn’t mean that we can’t use a bit of make up, of course we can, we are women. I like that as well to underline, but what we should not to is trying to paint something new onto something old or vice versa. It will never work.
Do they think about the coming years? How will it look like in ten years, will they look like a hobbit with hanging ears? Or will they have monthly appointments to stretch the skin again a bit more and fix it behind their hanging ears?
I cannot imagine that we won’t have cute grand moms anymore in a couple of years, that’s a big loss!
The perfect women society – teenager look as if they are twenty nine as well as their moms and grand moms?
I don’t want to join this society!

I was thinking about before/after pictures but I decided against as I’m sure everyone knows instantly what I mean (if not, then this post may not be for you ;-))
Instead of horror pictures I reveal my first wrinkles (please ignore the mascara spread below but fortunately I’m not the photoshop master).
It may be a horror picture for the addicted ones, for me it’s my life and it looks as if I had good laughs and I plan to have them in the future as well!

Stay real!!!

The eyebrow shape

The eyebrow shape

Do you know how it is when you had your eyebrows shaped the same style for years and years and then you are trying to change it?
I’m just in the process for the x-th time, I can’t even count any more how often I started it.
The main problem – at least for me – is that they start to grow naturally and I have the feeling as if there is something wrong in my face.
I feel each small tiny little hair and have the urge to plug it right away.
This is now the time to show myself how much self discipline I can have.
One good thing is that nowadays the beauty industry has lots of eyebrow pencils so that at least nobody will see the difference until its done. I can hide or cover up areas the way I like it.
The last I want is having additionally the feeling as if people are staring at me.
And again, this is the perfectionism I try to fight as I know exactly that nobody except of me is realizing anything so tiny in my face unless its their business and they work in the beauty area.
Call it weird but I’d rather be weird than not being how I want to be.

What are your beauty problems?
Stay safe,
Miss Faith

My favorite beauty treats…

My favorite beauty treats……are from Origins
Did you ever try the mega-mushroom skin relief?
If not you should. Since I discovered them for myself it’s like my own home spa.
As soon as applied them on my face the skin is relaxing and I smell the cream which has kind of a calming down smell, at least for me. What I do just these days additionally is applying the all-purpose high-elevation cream in the evening to smooth my skin. Wintertime leaves my skin dry as I stay lots in heated rooms and the dry air seems to suck out every moisture of my skin.
Why is the Jo Malone candle also on the pic? Because it smells so nice, I couldn’t resist adding it.
I light it up in the bathroom while pampering myself or just on a small table next to me while reading, writing or listening to music. This scent is addictive.
What are your favorites?
Nourished greetings from Miss Faith

A perfume is called an “essence” for woman – what do I do without it? My life has to be senseless as I’m lacking the “essence”. Best to hide myself from society from today onwards as I will never be able to fit into all these ideal ‘what a women should be like’ pictures.
Make up for a “bare skin effect”, make up for “naked skin effect”? Why to wear it then at all? Am I the only one not getting the sense here? I thought make up should underline, cover, make the skin even, but naked?
If I finally buy the “essence” perfume what about the one which gives me “the scent of eternal beauty” – can I use them both at the same time or do I have to choose between “essence” and “eternal beauty”? As long as I have the cream on my face which is bringing the “illuminating magic light” onto my skin I will choose the “essence”. And good to know that I can completely ruin my hair with too much heat as I just have to use the shampoo “to erase the damage of 100 blow-drys within 7 days” afterwards. As addition I can use the hair cream which makes my hair ten times healthier. Next advertisement and I have another problem. A new scent which should make me able to “choose your own path to happiness”. I want this too but am not sure if it can be combined with “essence” and “eternal beauty”.
Enhance your flawless face…may I use it under or above the “naked skin effect”?
The “24 hour eyeshadow” is a nice idea but not sure if I have to take it off before I add the “over night repair” cream to my skin which can do miracles while I’m sleeping. And is it still OK to use the patches to keep wrinkles in check and prevent furrows while sleeping?
I think I found the solution for my face. I just buy the cream “within ten days a 25% reduction of wrinkles” – means forty days and I look like in my twenties and no need for any further make up or cream, right?
My face is OK now and i don’t care too much about my hair as the solution is the wonder shampoo but the next problem is just around the corner – my body. Is it appropriate to use the “anti-aging” body lotion with thirty-four or should I go with the one for “dry skin”? And which for “dry-skin”? The slightly tanning lotion with sparkling effect or better with silk proteins? I would love the one with this blend of rosemary but this may not go together with the perfume. You think these decisions are not easy? Ha, in comparison of what is adequate to wear it is, believe me. Clothes are more difficult to choose. The skirt which is too mini should not be on a women above twenty-five but the longer version looks like my grandma’s. And why looks it so nice on a cover but when I have the same combination my mirror says “NOOOO”? Do I have to choose upfront if I’m the boho, pure, leather, business, mexican, clean, color or nude type or is it ok to be kin of schizophrenic in regards to fashion? Oh gosh, is there a therapist specialized on “who am I and how should I look like”?!? I’m lost in this world. Can I still drive a BMW wearing flat boots or is it only possible with the red sole high heels? And what about my flat, is it stylish enough to go out to the new opened “low carb, healthy vegetable” restaurant or do I have to move upfront into a loft?
Are these the important questions in life? If you believe what you see, then yes.
Fortunately I’m not believing all this and just do what I like, wear what I like, eat what I like and live in a way which makes me happy. Nothing is perfect or flawless or illuminated and you know what – that’s exactly what I want! Maybe I’m the individual, unique type.
Find yourself regardless of what the majority think as you don’t live for them, your life is just for you!
Keep the faith!
