Just recently my makeup line Entitled Beauty was mentioned in a beauty article on Beauty Brite “4 Ways To Revive Your Beauty Routine”. It’s always nice to hear feedback from beauty bloggers, beauty influencers, clients, and customers.
I recently had the chance to try products from two brands. I’ve only received them within the last few weeks and am having so much fun using them! I am so excited to share 4 ways to revive your beauty routine! When a new month or even a new season rolls around, I am reminded to take a look at my beauty and makeup products. I like to rotate my products as needed and as my mood changes! When it comes to makeup, you have the freedom to be as creative as you want. I like to have fun with my looks!
Add a pop of color to your lips
I rarely wear lip gloss, however, I do like to add a pop of color! I chose two lip glosses that stood out to me: Spoiled and Gurl Bye.
The first one I tried was Spoiled. I found the color to be bold and a smidge darker than I would normally wear. Still, I love the color!
Then, I tried the metallic color, Gurl Bye! I really like this color. It definitely is metallic and on the lighter side. I love that it doesn’t wash out my lips, it adds a nice subtle color with a touch of metallic!
Highlight your look
I love wearing a highlighter! It adds a nice glow to my look! I chose Resting Bitch Face, I mean, how could I not?!
I love the subtle highlight that I get, especially in the right lighting. However, I am unsure about the added color that I get from wearing Resting Bitch Face! I can easily use this as a blush or even as a bronzer because it is tinted and adds a naturally tan-like glow!
Living here in Hawaii on Oahu island is like being on vacation everyday. But if you’re a full face makeup wearer like myself sometimes it can be a little challenging when it comes to makeup. The weather here is summer everyday and during the summer the sun is no joke. As a boogie down brown woman I can get a really good tan just by being outside for 30 mins. So, on days when I am going to the beach I try to give myself a softer makeup look and I select long wearing products that will stay all day as much as it possibly can. The great thing for me is that I have my own makeup line, Entitled Beauty and it’s a mineral base brand so it doesn’t cause me to break out when I’m out in the sun sweating. The last thing you want to feel is the makeup dripping down your face and with Entitled Beauty the makeup feels weightless and it’s breathable. My pores are not getting as clogged and it’s not irritating my skin.
I posted a picture of myself on Instagram and Twitter and I received so many great compliments asking about my makeup so I thought I would share what makeup I had on. I didn’t take the best pictures of myself so excuse the quality but hopefully you can see what my beach day makeup look was. I was at the beach all day and evening as you can tell in the video.
I ❤️ this kid, met Jordan my 23 year old son. I’m trying to get him straight for his first apartment in Connecticut. He’s leaving us here in Hawaii for the mainland. We shipped his car so he should have it some time in July. Today we will work on furniture and getting everything ordered before he fly out.
He had me so tickle when I said I would help him decorate his new place. Jordan tells me don’t get him Walmart dishes. What college boy you know is picky about dishes? Plus, it’s his first pad don’t you suppose to struggle first.
He wanted the same dishes we had at the house. He ❤️ the store Crate and Barrel so I’m looking to set his kitchen up with all white kitchenware, something similar to what we have here at home. Then for his dinnerware and bar set that must be from Crate and Barrel or either Z Gallerie. He’s like his mama, so he want a nice bar set up in his apartment because he also enjoy entertaining.
I’m just soaking up every minute with him before he heads out on Tuesday. This kid makes me laugh so hard his personality is the best. Everything about him is so infectious. I don’t know how mother’s do it. Where do you get your strength from when your kids leaves home to start their life💔. I’m not ready to be a empty nester. The great thing about it is he will be living about 45 mins away from his older sister who’s 28. So, she could look out for him and as a parent this will make them closer, I hope.
On @justgirlfriends Instagram, I will share an emotional story about how we were both almost a hashtag. 🙏🏾
So share with me how do you handle being an empty nester? Was it hard for you to let your college kids go or your adult kids move out…HELP!
I don’t have all the answers but I do live with a study guide that I call it my personal blueprint. With everything going on, it’s ok to rewrite your story from time to time. All of this new TIME is allowing me to work on self-growth. 🙏🏾 ⏰
