Glowing skin, perfect hair, heavenly body and luscious lips blowing kisses from the red carpet! Fully prepped for you to admire, for you to envy and for you to desire. A thousand flashbulbs go off… she smiles a million watt smile, she’s a movie star! Most among us mere mortals would never know of her relentless effort in the journey to perfection. The reality is a star is not just born, a star is made!
But behind all that glamour and high-wattage looks, lies the efforts of an entire industry striving to keep you looking your stunning and beautiful best, for as long as possible. They work far below what you can see. When you say the star has glowing skin, it is not just about skin itself; it goes much deeper all the way till the bone. That means the water holding gel beneath the skin surface, the collagen, the elastin, the fat in various pockets of the face and the muscle tone; all on a framework of bone and teeth. So the goal of a stunning face requires that each of these be taken care of, nourished and dealt with individually.
And then there’s the issue of those oh-so-perfect features. But hey, do you realize that they may not be so perfect on you? The famous Angelina Jolie lips or the Priyanka Chopra nose, let’s face it, look best with the rest of that particular face. Angelina’s lips for one, will only look good on an angular face (and with Brad Pitt on your arms!) It’s important to bring out the best of yourself instead of chasing a star nose, lips or any other feature in singularity.
So then what happens in each of the layers? And what looks good on my face? How do I go about all this and make sure I do not look like I am carrying two apples on my cheeks like some socialites do or that I don’t end up with the perennially “stunned look” or that frozen smile of party animals that some of us want to run away from. No, of course I’d prefer to look like a star while keeping the ‘preparation’ a mystery.
Simple questions like whether it should be botox or filler for my laugh line. Should I go for laser treatment? But what laser should I choose?
These are some of the issues we shall deal with as we go along. Don’t be confused any more. You ask the questions, We have the answers……at MissMalini’s, where else?
