Hawaii Lifestyle Blogger Ask What’s The Correct FaceTime Etiquette

img_0685Alright guys, I have a question for you. Do you just call your friends/associates at anytime on FaceTime or SKYPE?

With majority of the world being LAID OFF or FURLOUGH we’re home and available to talk all day and night. No more excuses of I’M BUSY or I’M WORKING. You can barely get away with I was busy…yeah right, busy wiping down the food you just got from the store. So, friends and associates think it’s ok to just randomly FaceTime since SKYPE and Zoom video conferencing is all the rave. 

But, I don’t agree with that. I don’t know if it’s just that I’m old school and we don’t play that but you should never FaceTime a person without giving them heads up. I’m like this with people who just randomly pop up and knocking on my door. I have left many people outside knocking and ringing my bell because they just showed up and then showed up with an entourage, OH HELL NO!!! 

I strongly feel the same way with Face timing me. Just because you see my light on in Facebook or Instagram that don’t mean I’m wanna talk or better I want to Facetime with anyone right now. 

Now don’t get me wrong, I love my friends and like my associates, but you have to still be respectful. I might not be in a good mood, might be having personal things going on in my home, or better I might be having couple time, shit. Yes, I want to see your faces and I want to love on you but it’s at my TIME! 

If you know me, then you know I have a lot of rules. If we are talking on the phone, I want ALL OF YOUR ATTENTION. I don’t want to see your cute kids, your cats or dogs, I don’t want to say Hi to whomever is at your house. Another rule of mine is, don’t you dare call me and then you take your phone with you while you go to the bathroom. Cuz, I’m now hanging up and you’re no longer able to FaceTime with me ever. #PERIOD 

The only thing I wanna see in your surroundings is a bottle of bubbly’s that’s it.

So, I would love to know your FaceTime Phone Etiquette.

A Great Evening At Paradise Cove Luau In Hawaii

img_5001Today was a little windy here in Hawaii and we had reservations to attend Paradise Cove Luau in Ko’Olina. Since it’s been hard to schedule an evening out with all of our crazy work and school schedule we decided to still go and see this beautiful 12 oceanfront acres establishment.

The evening was filled with lots of drinking, activities, games, Hawaiian music dance and food. Ended with a beautiful sunset that can be seen throughout the acres. Here are pics of a great evening, I’m glad that we decided to still go and I’m glad I was smart enough to bring a jacket…sorry lungs (bronchitis).

 

 

How I Got Miss Hawaii USA Makeup Ready For A Night Out In Honolulu

 

img_5289Strutting in and slow-motion walks this breathtaking beauty carrying a see-thru case that’s holding something fantastic because I can see Swarovski Crystal peeking through and a #iDIE for blinged out phone case. Whom ever this beauty is, I’m obsessed and knew she had to be coming to see me.

I was correct, it was Miss Hawaii USA,Samantha Leyland who had a  3:30pm makeup appointment with me at Bloomingdale’s in Ala Moana Center. Samantha had an engagement with Modern Luxury Hawaii Magazine and BMW for the Hawai’i International Film Festival. 

 

The makeup I used was all from Giorgio Armani Beauty. She’s a fan of Armani Luminous Silk Foundation and I knew her skin would look radiant in it. I wanted Samantha’s skin to be flawless and luminous at the event and to last all evening for all of the pics that she would be taking.

On Samantha’s eyes, I selected Eyes To Kill Stellar Eye shadow and Eyes To Kill Quattro Eye shadow. I wanted tonight’s makeup look to focus only on her eyes. Because she’s a beautiful girl I didn’t want her makeup to compete with her.

Samantha has the best cheekbones ever so I flirted with them just a little. I didn’t go overboard with bringing them out since she really have great cheekbones. For her brows I used a crayon brow pencil and I gave them an effortless shape just enough to bring attention to her eyes. On her lip, I lined her entire lip with a lip pencil then I filled them in with a liquid lipstick and topped her lips off with a lacquer gloss.

Last touch was a little highlight on those cheekbones for a natural glow on her face when she walked the red carpet.

Hawaii Makeup Artist Give Her Client A JLo Inspired Makeup Look

img_3061-1As a makeup artist I am always looking for a canvas to do makeup looks on. Today at Bloomingdales in Ala Moana Center, I saw a face coming towards me that I knew I needed to get to.

Stephanie came through Bloomingdale’s looking for a new foundation and after learning more about her skin and her makeup style I selected Armani Power Fabric Foundation for her. After doing a foundation match I like to go back in apply the foundation on my guest so they could see what it look like on the skin. So, I first clean the skin, then I prep the skin with Armani Prima Glow On Moisturizing Cream skin care. After applying the Power Fabric Foundation on Stephanie we both agreed that the match was seamless on her. When you have a canvas that look this flawless I couldn’t help myself wanting to create a beautiful JLo inspired makeup look on Stephanie. Don’t you agree, Stephanie face shape is very similar to JLo so I couldn’t help myself. It worked out perfectly because Stephanie was going out tonight to celebrate a BFF birthday. So, the makeup wouldn’t go to waste. I pulled some of my favorite makeup items and this is what I came up with.

If you’re in Hawaii or will be visiting Hawaii soon and is in need of makeup give me a call or shoot me an email to book with your makeup face beat with me. The great thing about this makeup look is no LASHES were needed.

Celebrity Makeup Artist and Lifestyle Blogger Share Her First Christmas In Hawaii

img_3567Merry Christmas Everyone!!!! This was our first Christmas here in Hawaii and it couldn’t have been any better. We stayed home the entire day and my daughter and I stayed in our PJ’s all day. 3 out of 4 of us were still under the weather. Because we all work with the public we definitely picked up some type of virus. Because of my Lupus I always do around this time of year. Now that I’m working with international customers and they come to Hawaii sick wearing mask’s and shit that still doesn’t keep me from picking up something. The doctor said I had a Swollen Lymph Glands in my neck and a Viral Prodrome. I managed to do the tradition for the babies, cranberry muffins, cinnamon rolls and mimosa’s, for lunch we had seafood; crabs, crawfish and spicy potatoes. Us girls we stick to the bubbly’s and the guys like to do eggnog with brown liquor. Around 2:45pm I had to take a quick nap, my body needed more rest. While we were gifting I put the roast in the crock pot and sauteed the vegetables. Before movie time we ate dinner and snacked on a pumpkin pie while watching 2 movies.

The biggest gift my husband and I received was having our daughter fly in from Connecticut. It was definitely a treat to all be together here in Hawaii. Even though the boys, Miko and Ani are no longer with us we still put there little stockings up and we have their ashes joining the family every holiday.

 

 

 

 

The bubbly’s started to kick in so the pics stopped here (lol). I hope everyone had a lovely time with their families and friends on yesterday. I know I’m so blessed to have mine, it’s the best feeling ever. We work hard, we play hard and we love on each other hard. Merry Christmas Guys!

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.
