I am so excited to share my blog this week with some very lovely ladies. All of the ladies that will be guest blogging for me this week are are friends of mine from college that I admire for various reasons. These ladies have beauty, grace, independence, integrity, tenacity, strength and ambition. Let’s dive in!
My first guest is Jordan, (although her blog friends know her as Jane) one half of the dynamic duo at Jane and Lola Beauty Blog. This is a fitting blog for her, because Jordan is one of the most beautiful women I know, both inside and out.
Women Who Inspire Me: Beauty Edition
By: JaneAren’t women just spectacular? I’m not just saying that because I AM a woman – I’m saying that because although I’m a straight female – I always find myself admiring women. Their grace, their beauty, their attitude…it’s the whole package. Though I have many amazing individuals in my life who inspire me every day, I’ve found that most of these are women. I can’t really explain why – maybe because women have this amazing way of connecting with one another.
I’m a beauty blogger – my sister Lola and myself have a beauty blog where we contribute products and beauty methods we’ve found successful and have made us feel great throughout the years. Though I may not be a fashion critic or a makeup artist – I’m inspired by beautiful women. My favorite thing to do is flip through fashion magazines or watch stars walk the red carpet. Though I have many amazing women in my personal life, today, I’m going to focus on women who inspire me in beauty. In no particular order:
1) Elizabeth Taylor: “Classic Beauty”
Holy cow – what a knockout, right? Elizabeth Taylor was the true example of a glamorous and gracious woman. While some may have marveled at the notorious Grace Kelly for her light features, I have always been blown away by this dark-haired bombshell. To me, she defines old Hollywood glamour. The beauty characteristic I absolutely love about E. Taylor is her trademark eyebrows. I know as a woman, I don’t always LOVE the way I look – but I have some pretty good features. For example, I have great lips – therefore, I LOVE accentuating them with pretty pink lipstick and lip tints. I love how Taylor was blessed with thick, defined eyebrows and rather than plucking them away, she ran with it. She used them completely to her advantage – they embellish her beautiful violet eyes, and lets be honest, they make her memorable. WOWZA! I blame my eyebrow fetish on her, completely.
2) Katy Perry: “No Boundaries Beauty”
3) Kate Middleton: “Fresh Beauty”
4) Kate Hudson: “Happy Beauty”
Is this blog meant to be superficial? Absolutely not. I think we can all agree that beauty is all around us, in many different forms. Today, I chose to focus on strong, independent women in the public eye that I feel are beautiful. But if you really read my post, you’ll notice that this blog is mostly about these women’s personalities, which reflects in their appearance. These women have characteristics that I not only want to include in my beauty routine, but also my daily life: be memorable, take risks, be yourself and be happy.
