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!

Makeup Day At The Cosmetics Company Store

img_7248I love doing makeup, doesn’t matter who my canvas is I love doing makeup. The better the location the better the makeup application.

Today I’m doing makeup on a gorgeous Hawaiian model name Tamara at the The Cosmetics Company Store in Waikele.

The Cosmetics Company Store is a Estee Lauder own store. All of the brands that is owned by Estee Lauder is retailed at an amazing discounted price. If you have never visited a Cosmetics Company Store then you should make it your mission. Even if you’re not a fan of makeup, skincare, fragrances or hair products. You will find great items for someone who is obsessed with beauty items, Plus, who doesn’t like discounts.

At the Hawaii location we are offering 40% off majority of the items we have. Tom Ford offer 50% off on fragrances and 60% off of the makeup. If you’re a MAC Lover, it’s 40% off their items. Let’s talk about skincare sets, OUT OF CONTROL. There was a Clinique skincare/makeup set that had about 8 items in it with one being a 1.7oz Clinique Smart moisturizer that retails for $58.00. The entire set retailed for $29.70, isn’t that CRAZY?!!!

So today, I was lucky to have in my chair Tamara, who was in town for a concert. She wanted to have her makeup professionally done so I was glad that she asked me to get her makeup ready for the event. I love that the Hawaiian girls like how I do makeup. I look forward to doing more glam makeup looks here in Hawaii.

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.

6 Drugstore Eye Shadow Palettes Makeup Artists Keep In Their Stashes

With so many makeup palettes on the market, all offering an array of hues, pigment intensities, and textures, it’s hard to know where to look. Do you head to Sephora and shell out for the latest from luxe brands, or do you mosey on over to your local drugstore and scoop up a much more reasonably priced palette that very well may offer the exact same results you’re looking for? To splurge or not to splurge — doesn’t that always seem like the question? We reached out to celebrity makeup artists to find out what they use on their clients, and as it turns out, they’re big fans of the cheaper contenders. Here, some of the drugstore eyeshadow palettes pros keep in their stash.

Here is what I shared with Jenn and GLAM.comeye shadow palettes

 

3. NYX Professionals Warm Neutrals Ultimate Shadow Palette ($18; ulta.com)

Celebrity makeup artists Brandy Gomez-Duplessis is a major fan of NYX products because of their quality formulas. “I love that they’re highly pigmented and that the colors blend very well with either an eye shadow brush or just your finger,” she says. “The colors wear very well on all skin tones, and when I want to give my client a soft, washed-out eye, it’s very easy to use a ring finger or the tip of a beauty blender to pat the shadow on the lid.” With 16 shadows, ranging from light champagne to warm chocolate brown, this eye shadow palette is great for creating everyday looks.

Check to see if any of your favorite drugstore eyeshadow palettes made the list HERE.
