Los Angeles is an image and beauty conscious place. Many females are not comfortable with themselves naturally. They hunt the malls and specialty skin and beauty shops for the products that promise to make their skin taut, wrinkle-free, and ageless. Among some of the favorite cosmetic and skincare shops of California girls are Sephora, cosmetic and fragrance counters at Nordstroms and Bloomingdale’s, Kiehl’s, Perricone MD Skincare, and L’Occitane en Provence. California girls love to smell great. They love fragrances that are floral, light, and fresh. Chanel, Dior, Fendi, Versace are among the favorites. Every season brings new fragrances and visits to the fragrance counters to test them out. Ask for a sample to take home. Fragrances change over time and reacts differently to each person’s skin.
California girls conceal their imperfections with concealers, powders, and foundations. They can look flawless and radiant. The lucky few do so naturally, but no one is perfect. With a little help from cosmetics and cosmeticians, every girl can approach perfection. Just add money. The beauty industry is huge here. So much money being spent here. So much money to be made for the sake of vanity.
Most girls expose their skin to a lot of the sun’s damaging rays. Sunscreen is the key to healthy skin even when it’s overcast. Make a habit of using a moisturizer with a spf of at least 45 for protection. Have fun under the sun. Healthy skin is beautiful.
People hide behind the mask of cosmetic products. The focus on exterior beauty overwhelms the interior one. The search goes on to find the perfect lipstick, powder, and fragrance. Beauty is trendy just like fashion. There are the changing colors of the seasons, and ways to apply makeup so that the look is modern or nostalgic to fit the mood. Beauty is projected. It’s put on every day so that people can be seen in a particular way. Do makeup make people feel more beautiful? Hopefully, beauty comes from within as well.
Those who seek more permanent or drastic changes resort to cosmetic procedures and surgeries. They go under the knife in search of perfection, theirs or someone else. Perfection is also trendy. Standards of beauty changes over time. Once the cutting starts, it might not end. There’s so much nipping, tucking, and cutting. There are plenty of cosmetic surgeons in Los Angeles and Beverly Hills to cash in on people’s insecurities and search for youth and perfection. It’s the land of celebrity surgeries and surgeries gone wrong, sensationalized by the show, “Botched.” Be wary. It’s okay not to be perfect.
