Wearing Entitled Beauty Makeup While Traveling Kept Getting Me Stopped

 

img_2775While traveling for Entitled Beautymy makeup line, I kept getting stopped by women inquiring what makeup I was wearing. I wear something from Entitled Beauty everyday but I have never received this type of response like this before. It was a proud moment to say, I’m a Co-Founder and not hype up another brand.

Today, women all over in different cities were obsessing over Entitled Beauty. This is what keeps me going hard because of the reactions on the plane, the airport, at meetings, etc. If more people could see how amazing my makeup line is they too will fall in love with it.

Let me show you what I was wearing, you got about 10 mins to spare? Maybe you’ll see something for yourself, a sibling, a friend, a co-worker who is a makeup addict like myself. So after a few glasses, I’ll be ready to fill all the orders that came in today

Thanks for watching them and I hope this Holiday Season you will give my makeup line Entitled Beauty a try. If you have anyone in your life that has Lupus, I made a purple liquid lipstick shade called, Queen B. I’m sure they would appreciate receiving Queen B, made by another Lupus Warrior. Because of my Lupus is the reason why I moved to Hawaii. And I have been doing 100% better. I took myself off the Prednisone, Meloxicam, Gabapentin and the Nebulizer.

So this Holiday Season, I have so much to be thankful for.

Do You Love Those Beautiful Store Windows At Ala Moana Center In Hawaii

 

img_2725-1When I was a young girl one of my favorite thing to do was to go the city to look at the department stores windows in New York. For hours, I would just put myself in the story that the Art Director was sharing with us. As I got older I found myself still flirting with that same obsessions. During Christmas seasons my family would join me walking down 5th Ave while sipping on hot chocolate admiring all the magical annual holiday windows. Each window were more spectacular than the other.

I find myself still crushing over stores windows here in Hawaii at the Ala Moana Center. This year I won’t have a White Winter Wonderland but at least I’ll get to enjoy beautiful fashion.

Get Armani Beauty Signature Makeup Look From Hawaii Celebrity Makeup Artist

img_3951As extra as I am, I’m a classic girl when it comes to makeup looks. I love to create beautiful makeup and not rainbow bright makeup looks.

When I lived on the mainland I use to love to work on any Donna Karan assignment because Donna Karan preferred pretty and classic no makeup makeup looks on her models.

Today, I was in the mood to create a classic Armani Luminous Glamour look on my muse Camille. I knew Camille would be a great canvas for this inspired by nature and Hollywood look. She has perfect full lips to wear the comfortable matte intense color 8 hour wear Rouge D’ Armani Matte Lipstick. So let’s begin.

Do You Know The Story Behind The Iconic Armani Shade 400? Mr. Armani took a red rose to the GA laboratories and asked that the perfect center of a rose be matched to the iconic shade 400. It took 96 trials to achieve the perfect shade of red. When creating a shade typically there are only 3-4 trials, this is a great example of how Mr. Armani achieves perfection.

I started Camille with Look 1 using the following items:

Armani Prima Refreshing Makeup Fix

Prima Moisturizing Balm

Power Fabric Foundation Balm

High Precision Retouch Concealer

Fluid Sheer

Loose Powder in Universal to set the foundation

Loose Powder in Bronze on her eyes 

Rouge D’ Armani Matte Lipstick in #400

Black Ecstasy Mascara 

Smooth Silk Eye Brow Pencil in Wenge Wood

For Look 2. I added a few other Armani products to glam up the look.

Eyes To Kill Stellar Eyeshadow in Moonlight

High Precision Brow Pencil in Wenge Wood

Eyes To Kill Designer Liner

The Best Tinted Cream Makeup To Wear In Hawaii

Crema Nuda TintedI’ve used a lot of makeup brands and I’ve used a lot of tinted makeup on my clients. Just recently I had the opportunity to play with an award winning natural glow treatment with green chemistry called Crema Nuda from Giorgio Armani Beauty. It’s the new generation of tinted cream. The Crema Nuda line surpasses what BB and CC Creams performance  power. It’s a water based texture that will enhanced the glow while blurring imperfections. The anti-aging complex Reviscentalis will improve your skin radiance and will give you younger looking skin. Hyaluronic acid and mannose complete the formula by adding deep hydration with a weightless feel.

Giorgio Armani Crema Nuda Tinted Cream

 

Because the weather here in Hawaii is always in the high 80’s and low 90’s wearing a full face of makeup or a beatface is not what you see on majority of the women here like I’m accustomed to seeing. Crema Nuda foundation is such a unique product. it’s having skincare inside of your makeup. I noticed when applying it to my clients that it’s a corrector with a medium nude coverage that gives the skin a healthy glow. The texture is amazing, it’s silky and buildable on days when you need coverage. I like how it gives my clients an airbrush or a filter look, and it fill in the pores really well.

Giorgio Armani Crema Nuda

Living in paradise it’s nice to have makeup that gives the illusion of your lifestyle. The only two challenges that many women will find is the limited amount of shades they offer and the price point. But if women add up all the products they put on their face it adds up, so why not purchase one item that will do it all. I find that my Japanese, Korean, and Chinese ladies that live in Hawaii are is visiting Hawaii seem to buy it from me at Bloomingdale’s more. Those ladies seem to already be on the Crema Nuda obsession. It’s definitely a must have in my makeup kit and I can’t wait to share with all of my clients here in Hawaii.

Living My Best Life And Not Because It’s My Birthday

facetune_13-10-2019-20-19-11

So Queen B day and month has come to an end. Next year I will be celebrating the BIG 50 in October. My first birthday and Hawaii was everything I thought it would be. I don’t know how I will top it next year but I’m sure it will be filled with many fabulous treats as usual. I never thought that being 49 would be a sexy time in my life. Let me tell you, I have so much more confident and spirit. I do what I want, I live how I like and I don’t look for approval from anyone. I do live my best life EVERYDAY and moving to Hawaii was the start of doing ME!

Living In Hawaii With An Auto Immune Disease

 

img_1290I’m so lucky to have a beach day everyday, that’s the plus to living in Hawaii. If you have never visited Hawaii, know that  Hawaiian beaches are absolutely breathtaking. You can just stare out at the ocean for hours in just enjoy the wonderful breeze.

I always find that when I’m feeling low like a flare up is coming on and my body /joints are hurting due to my Lupus I walk down to the beach. I’m so lucky that the beach is just a 3-4 minute walk for me. If  I’m having really low energy then I drive to the beach.

Since living here in Hawaii, I haven’t been having many flare up days. My body has really embraced this move. I wish all my Lupus Warriors and Auto Immune Warriors could make a move like I did to live better and be healthier. No more suffering like I did when living on the mainland, it’s really about finding the right environment. I’m not sure about you but before being diagnosed with Lupus, I didn’t know much about the environment and environmental issues and how the body reacts.

All of this Aloha Spirit has allowed me to live life again. I even cut back on some of the meds I was taken on the mainland. My body has not reacted negatively since living here in Hawaii. It’s only been 4 months but I can definitely see an improvement. I’ve learned what my triggers are so I’m aware of what will cause a flare up and I do my best to keep it from happening. With stress being one of the things that cause my flare ups that includes negative and stressful people I now keep them away.

With Hawaii being a summer state all year round and because I am photosensitive I make sure I cover up as much as possible. I do find that I get drained if I’m out in the sun. So, I make sure I go out later in the day when the sun has gone down on beach days. Because of the sun, I’m still tired and I have joint pains everywhere. I do take CBD Hemp Oil to help with my joint pains. And sunscreen is major, I don’t leave the house without using it on my body. I also make sure that my foundation have SPF cuz everything helps.

Overall, this move has been one of the best things I could have done to help my body. I’m never leaving Hawaii, I have got my life back and life is good.
