As I was flipping through the March issue of Allure (to be honest…I was procrastinating, LOL!), this beautiful picture stopped me in my tracks.
The woman’s name is Maye Musk (), and the caption says she’s a model, muse and truth-teller (hyphenated!).
I can’t remember the last time I saw a picture of someone in Allure, or really any big beauty magazine, with real “experience lines.”
How awesome is this? I mean, it’s a magazine, so I wouldn’t be surprised if there were still some Photoshopping happening, but you can actually see everything — the texture of her skin, her smile lines, the creases between her brows and the beautiful crinkling at the outer corners of her eye. Basically, the markers that decorate the face of someone who’s lived a long life.
Let’s get real, when do you ever see pictures of women in big beauty magazines who actually look like they’re getting older? And she’s so totally working it! I love it.
Your friendly neighborhood beauty addict,
P.S. Hiya, friend. How are you? I’m doing better today than I was yesterday afternoon, because yesterday I spent half the day at the dentist’s getting four (!) fillings on my upper right side.
On the one hand…my jaw is still a little sore. On the other, I’m happy to report that I didn’t shed a single tear at the dentist’s office. NOT ONE. I was shockingly calm the entire time, which was a first for me.
I almost celebrated this victory with an Ulta run afterward because I reeeeeeally want to get , but my stomach started rumbling (the visit took almost three hours).
Anyway, miss you. Are you having a good week so far? Have I mentioned that we’re also in the midst of an atmospheric river here, and it’s been pouring FOR DAYS?
