One beauty tip you learned from your mother: More from my grandmother than my mother –
I used to sit with her at her dressing table in her bathroom while she was getting dressed , she would take a face cream jar and burn the bottom of it with a match then smudge the black over her eye lids making them look wonderfully sultry and mysterious…. I also discovered she used to bring back prickly pear oil from Tunisia in a raw form and use it on her skin…..I have based my whole beauty line on this fabulous, natural anti-aging oil…
