Being that I’m a Beauty Expert, I’m always looking for new beauty tools & accessories to pamper myself. The Caribbean and Island life can be different than what the ladies are enjoying on the mainland. Living on the island of Oahu, I wanted to share what we fancy.
Here are my favorite new items this spring & summer that I’m obsessing over. Read more in Caribbean Posh Magazine Posh Brunch Issue.

Brandy is located on Oahu island in Ewa Beach but you can find her working doing makeup in Waikiki, Waipahu, and Kapolei. Being a top influencer & blogger don’t be surprised to see her writing beauty articles and taking selfies for her 60K followers on Instagram on the beautiful beaches in Honolulu…and YES, there are black people living in Hawaii.

Prior to Hurricane Irma and Maria, Caribbean Posh magazine is in the process of planning their annual Caribbean POSHgirl POWER Brunch for 2018 and the launching of a FALL Fashion Issue. The passing of these historic hurricanes has forced them to rethink their plans.
As they work to re-prioritize their plans it became apart that high priority should be given to helping those in need. Reiterating their commitment to the women empowerment movement they are introducing The Caribbean POSHgirl Project. The goal of this initiative is to provide a new start for women affected by Hurricane Irma and Maria. Your support can make a difference in the lives of so many women.
Today’s wedding vow renewal in Litchfield, Connecticut was one that I was so elated about. My bride is a beautiful model from Trinidad and her husband is a firefighter/DJ. The wedding took place at their beautiful home outdoor surrounded by all of their family & friends from the Caribbean.
When Annya sent me the pics of her dress I knew exactly the makeup look I wanted to do on her in the ladies. So I brought so much makeup with me just so I could have everything at my disposable.
I chose to do all of the makeup outdoor because I wanted that natural light. Since Annya was going to be outside 99.9 % of the day I needed that light because this is how everyone will see her. I didn’t want that heavy face that looked only good in pics. I wanted it to be stunning yet effortless.
If you wanted to find all of the girls of course they were hanging with the beautiful bride.
The food was DELICIOUS…4 of these Shandy Carib lager beer had me feeling really good.
The family, only person missing is 4 month old baby London
Annya Best Friend for life… Yendi Phillipps is a Jamaican TV Host, model and beauty queen who the winner of the Miss Jamaica World 2007 beauty pageant, as well as the Miss Jamaica Universe 2010 pageant.
What a beauty…still can’t believe she had a baby 4 months ago.
