My quest to look like Joan Collins. ♥

Hello lovelies! I am indeed still under the weather, alas I'm getting better though. Reading everyones blogs always cheer me up though. :) Days when I am ill or down I look for inspiration to pull me out of an ugly state...

When I grow up.. I want to be Joan Collins darlings! Reasons for this:

  • She is 77 years old and beautiful.
  • Sophisticated.
  • Femme fatale and sexy.
  • A diva.
  • How a Hollywood star should be.
  • I am a huge fan of the glossy pin-up red lipstick!

Joan Collins has an OBE to her name, and was born ages ago in 1933. She is a famous English actress and has been present in the media since 1955. The photos in the 1950's were black and white, any photograph taken after the 1970’s I can not tell how old she is, as she appears to have never aged.

Now... how does she do it? She claims this is down too:
  • Making an effort. She came from a family of women who always made an effort with their appearance, and believes modern women don't as much. I tend to agree.
  • Red wine, hehe!
  • A good man, hehe!
  • Lots of water.
  • Moisturise, moisturise and moisturise!
I am 22 years old, and I know I sometimes look much younger, but that is just by luck. I'm scared one day I'll go from looking quite young, to quite old! But keeping young is about feeling young and I think that is Joan's ethos.

I don't make an effort everyday with my makeup because I am lazy. Simples! However I always take my skincare seriously. I use Cliniques 3 step routine. My day moisturiser is Supedefense SPF 25 and for night Super Rescue, both by Clinique. My day cream keeps my skin moisturised, protects again any enviromental aggressers,  the sun, and overall skin damage. My night cream keeps my skin moisturised, then repairs any damage that has been caused in the day.

Wine & a good man... I have them both! Water... now I do drink 2 small bottles a day at work. However I should drink more, It's so good for you! Clients who drink it productively, you can see it in their skin!  I shouldn't drink it when I am dying of thirst, I should drink it to keep my body & skin hydrated.

So who do you thinks an attractive older lady? What keeps you young? Have you found the fountain of youth? Can I have the address?

  5. She looks amazing. She must be the most attractive older woman in the media! She has a certain appeal, and it makes her seem 20 years younger..

  6. Great post! She does look amazing! And I agree that modern woment don't take as much time or pride in their appearances. I admit I am very guilty of that! And I really need to focus on moisturizing more!

  7. She looks great for her age! But I imagine that's also down to good docs not just genes lol :P

  8. She has such an interesting face. They don't make 'em like that anymore. :)
