Imagine the salad bar at your favourite lunchroom, picking lettuce, sweet potatoes, skipping onions and adding olives and pickles. Only what if, just like your salad, you could compose the features of the your dreamface choosing from the worlds most beautiful women. *sigh* If only….
I guess we women like to torture ourselves by being confronted with beauty all the time. Magazines are nowadays filled with the most beautiful spreads, making it more of a picture book than a magazine to actually read. Beautiful mannequins that nowadays even have gorgeous faces are pulling us into shops like honey attracts the bees. Fashionshows are live streamed, so the buzz of an upcoming it-model walking hand in hand with the designer spreads even faster.
Of course it’s all inspiring. It brings us ideas to change our look, makes us want to grow, chop or dye our hair. But sometimes it can be harsh as well. I know I do it all to myself but my Instagram timeline runs over with supermodels staring me in the eye with their gorgeous faces, with our without make-up, on or off duty. And sometimes, it makes me want to be like them.
There I said it. Totally girl-crushed, madly in love and as an innocent victim of a cruel marketing machine I drool over their gorgeous hair, flawless skin, cutest smiles and perfect untamed eyebrows.
Today I entrust my facial wishlist to you. If only….
…I had the brows of Cara Delevigne. Fierce, untamed and looks like they’ve never seen a Tweezerman. How convenient!
…the hair of Doutzen. Ok, this one doesn’t really count because I had to choose something. Honestly, I wouldn’t mind having her eyes, nose, teeth, brows, cheeks, lashes, ears, toes, knees, legs, feet, arms, hands (going on forever…).
…the skin of Lupita Nyoung ‘O. As the face for Lancôme this year, you better have good skin. However, in a recent interview the 12 years a slave -actrice revealed to use no skincare other than the good old Nivea. Just Nivea, only Nivea. Wow.
…the eyes of Adriana Lima. For the record: totally barefaced, no makeup at all and still these eyes to drown in.
…the lips of Beyonce. Xzibit A that absolutely anything on Beyonce is sensual and sexy.
…the freckles of Lara Stone. How cute are these freckles? I know owners of freckles hate them, but I would love to have this party on my nose and cheeks.
…the teeth of Georgia May Jagger. Ok, any dentist would kill me, but I love a little (well not so little actually) gap just like Georgia May’s. I just don’t like perfection and this is pretty perfect imperfect to me.
…the jawline of Edita Vilkeviciute. For all the pictures that are taken from aside, a sharp jawline seems pretty convenient.
So what does your wish list look like? Envying someones hair? Nails? Lips or ears?
