Week 6: Becoming Glam and Posh

Week 6: Becoming Glam and Posh

"Beauty and femininity are ageless and can't be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won't like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it's based on femininity." Marilyn Monroe

What did I do:

LA LA land is full of glitz and glamour and it can be quite intimidating for some women. Lucky for me I have thick skin and a whole lot of charm.  After a few weeks of being in front of the camera, I thought it was time to get a bit more glamorous. I spent an afternoon taking care of my skin, learning how to apply makeup and change up my hair while drinking champagne and eating Laduree macaroons.

Who was with me:

I rang up my favorite glamorous girl, Maryam Nia, aka Glam and Posh (@GlamandPosh) who is a fashion diva, an influencer and just happens to be a close friend.

What did I learn:

I learned a lot of about skin care. Before you put on any makeup you have to first treat your skin! I genetically have great skin so it’s not something I have spent a lot of effort or money on. Makeup and makeup removers can be very harsh.  I learned more about makeup than I ever thought I would. As we age, it becomes more and more vital to take care of your skin on a daily basis.

Maryam truly loves putting on makeup, it is a form of art, a creation of a daily masterpiece on her face. I also confirmed my assumption that when you do Japanese straightening treatment on your hair it becomes nearly impossible to curl it, regardless of how hot curling iron. Lastly, I realized that although I love to dress up and wear beautiful makeup when going out, it is not something I spend a lot of time on daily and likely less than the average glamorous girl.

Would I do this again:

Absolutely, I love pampering myself and being pampered by others. Next time around, I’d specifically want an eye makeup tutorial and perhaps a wardrobe makeover!
