Beauty Lessons From My Grandmother


Hi everyone!  Today I want to share with all of you some of the beauty lessons that I learned from my Grandmother.  She passed away about four years ago, and to this day she remains one of the most beautiful people I’ve ever met …. inside and out!  I remember staying at her house as a little girl, and always feeling so much more grounded and happy by the end of the trip (I grew up about six hours away from her).  I treasure my memories with her, and I also follow her beauty philosophies when it comes to my own skincare and makeup routines.  Without further ado, here are some of the beauty lessons I learned from my gorgeous Grandma.

❤ Skincare first, makeup second

My Grandma was all about skincare.  She invested in high quality products (she absolutely loved La Mer), and believed that less is more.

❤ Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize

I remember once, while getting a manicure with my Grandma, the lady doing her nails asked her what the secret was to her flawless skin, and wanted to know what kind of facial cleanser she used.  My Grandma’s response was that it was all about using an amazing moisturizer, and using a cleanser that didn’t strip the skin of it’s natural oils.

❤ Protect your skin from environmental factors

My Grandma wore sunscreen every single day, sported cute hats, and always sat under a big umbrella at the beach (she loved to visit Brazil).

I’m sure more of my Grandma’s beauty advice will be on Graceful Glass Slipper throughout the years, but for now, I hope all of you enjoyed this post and can maybe apply some of her beauty philosophies to your own!

Much love,

Carly xx
