img_8619Living here on the beautiful island of Oahu in Hawaii, makeup is usually not the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Hawaii. Usually, mentioned are Honolulu, Waikiki or  Oahu’s North Shore, the surfing mecca of the world.

When my partner Johnny Luoma and I were thinking about Hawaii with its beautifully vibrant flowers, evocative colors and consistently warm temperatures, I knew we wanted Entitled Beauty Cosmetics, our makeup line, to be deliciously vivid with long wearing heat resistant colors.

 

Being that I’m a makeup artist of 23 years and a Lifestyle Blogger living in Hawaii, having a effortlessly beat face is my signature look. Entitled Beauty a highly pigmented mineral based line with fantastic color and fun over the top names gives me that signature look.

 

Entitled Beauty Cosmetics can stand up to the heat here in paradise without clogging up your pores or melting down the face. So while on the beach, enjoying the beautiful water, or sipping on Mai Tai’s, I’m confident that Entitled Beauty Cosmetics will have you looking just as good as Hawaii’s sandy beaches.

 

Here are 6 makeup items from Entitled Beauty that you will always find in my makeup bag for my signature look.

Apple News Picked Up My Beauty Article On How Beauty Is Enhanced By Plant Based Food

img_9331Earlier this summer I written a beauty article about food for a new online magazine called SPIRALIZED.

I worked with the Editor In Chief, Gina Keatley numerous times doing hair and makeup for her videos and photoshoots. So when she asked me if I would be interested in writing about the topic of food, makeup and clothing I thought it would make for fun content.

Little did I know that later this summer the article would get picked up by Apple News. I’m not a journalist I’m just a woman who love to write on her blog about beauty, skincare, hair, and my crazy life. So when Gina reached out to me that my article was picked up by Apple News, you can only imagine how taken away I was about this great news.

I’m going to continue to bring you all quality and fun content on my blog as well as a contributor. Below you will find the original article on SPIRALIZED page 11-13. I hope you enjoy it!

Definition of Success:

My definition of success is doing what I’m passionate about and being able to live the lifestyle that I want. I have been blessed to achieve success in my career and have the lifestyle that I want. Being an entrepreneur is hard and it’s a lot of work. You need discipline, strength and very tough skin. But success comes with sacrifice and for me that was time with my husband and kids. I missed out on a few important dates in their lives. So, I promised myself that I would always give them the best life I could give each of them every day.

Everyday that I am with them is special, so when I missed those special days it wasn’t so disappointing for them. At the end of the day, it was worth it when my kids shared with me that I was their role model not someone famous on television. They saw that my hard work was for them to live the lifestyle that they had.

Self Esteem:

Self-esteem is something that I was taught by my parents and family. They always gave me positive and encouraging words. I think women should surround themselves around people that know their worth and love how they look. The world is different now, it’s very sensitive and so is the world. You must be confident in yourself and understand that everyone is not going to embrace you. When I was growing up, I didn’t see a lot of women that looked like me on TV, magazines, and in the workplace.

My skin tone wasn’t always liked by others, but I didn’t need their approval to feel great about myself. I was already told by my loved ones and I loved what I saw when I looked in the mirror. So, if I wasn’t someone’s flavor of choice it was ok. I want girls, teens and young adults to understand that we are not always going to be someone’s flavor of choice whether it comes to looks, bodies, hair, and skin tone. And guess what, it’s ok. You need to love yourself first. Looking for love from other people to validate who you are doesn’t work. #justsaying

Dating Advice:

The advice that I would give to single women on LOVE & DATING is to enjoy yourself but respect yourself. Usually, you have already met your soulmate, he’s that friend that you’re overlooking for that bad boy. He’s that guy that is always there for you when your heart is broken. Also, date guys that are not in your community but that guys who have similar taste like you do. I can promise you that he’s not on those Apps…sorry girls.

What’s in the future:

I see for Entitled Beauty, my partner and I creating more colors and products. I see us growing and retailing not just online but in boutiques, salons, and hotels. We will become a household name!

Favorite shade of lipstick:

OMG! This is a hard question. Let’s see, my favorite shade of is lipstick is a bold purple shade called Queen B from my makeup line Entitled Beauty. It’s the color I created for us, Lupus Warriors.
