Are you looking for a new highlighter that gives a beautiful and radiant glow? Well, I have one just for you. It’s from my makeup line, Entitled Beauty Cosmetics. It’s my favorite “Resting Bitch Face” and I paired it with “Pretentious” to warm up my skin. When I created “Resting Bitch Face” I first wanted it to have a name that would be iconic and I wanted it to be my Best Seller. I knew it would be an item that I would wear everyday and I wanted the color to brighten my face on my full cheeks. Because, I smile a lot I knew on my cheeks you would see that glow.
Below you will find the highlighters & lipsticks colors that I have on. On my lips is another favorite from my All Nighter lip collection called, Yes Bitch” and “Gurl Bye” from the metallic collection. With “Yes Bitch” when I finally was able to apply it on at the lab, the first thing that came out my mouth after checking myself out was “YES BITCH” and I knew that was going to be the name. Because when my Entitled Babe also put it on they were going to say the exact same thing (lmao). So, that’s how I come about with naming my items.
Living here in Hawaii on Oahu island is like being on vacation everyday. But if you’re a full face makeup wearer like myself sometimes it can be a little challenging when it comes to makeup. The weather here is summer everyday and during the summer the sun is no joke. As a boogie down brown woman I can get a really good tan just by being outside for 30 mins. So, on days when I am going to the beach I try to give myself a softer makeup look and I select long wearing products that will stay all day as much as it possibly can. The great thing for me is that I have my own makeup line, Entitled Beauty and it’s a mineral base brand so it doesn’t cause me to break out when I’m out in the sun sweating. The last thing you want to feel is the makeup dripping down your face and with Entitled Beauty the makeup feels weightless and it’s breathable. My pores are not getting as clogged and it’s not irritating my skin.
I posted a picture of myself on Instagram and Twitter and I received so many great compliments asking about my makeup so I thought I would share what makeup I had on. I didn’t take the best pictures of myself so excuse the quality but hopefully you can see what my beach day makeup look was. I was at the beach all day and evening as you can tell in the video.
As I indulged myself in my new “normal” my new approach to life. I felt like being entitled to a little Entitled Beauty enchantment as I sipped on my Prosecco. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
If you’re having a sexy day and enjoying the organic nature of baring yourself at full exposure with high pigments, Entitled Beauty Mineral Makeup is your new BFF; this go to of sultry, yet feminine lips enveloped in pure “lipsession”. ▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️▫️
It’s long wearing on my lips is a reminder hours later that I am fully deserving and entitled to this moment. Isn’t it amazing what the perfect liquid lipstick can do? I just needed a little pick me up that made me feel like I’ve never been kissed until I let the velvet texture of Entitled Beauty’s take me out for a night on the town (in the comfort of my own Living Room).
So, if you’re looking for a playful lipstick for your next new “normal escapade, get fully naked with Entitled Beauty’s All Nighter Liquid Lipsticks! Come on, it’s time that you don’t leave your lip print anywhere. Thanks for supporting my brand ❤️ @entitledbeautyworldwide 👄💄🥰
Today I woke up feeling ENTITLED…Entitled Beauty Cosmetics that is. As you may know I’m the Co-Founder to Entitled Beauty Cosmetics, it’s a mineral base makeup line. With the pandemic going on I am so glad that my makeup is mineral based. Being a Lupus warrior my body is very sensitive right now. Because I LOVE to wear makeup I need everything that touches my skin to be healthy. And Entitled Beauty Cosmetics is just that.
We understand that everyone pockets are very lite and makeup lovers need their makeup. We decided to do 50% off of all lip items and 20% off everything else. Our $19.00 liquid lipsticks are now $9.50. This is a great opportunity to try out Entitled Beauty Cosmetics especially if you are someone with an auto immune.

Perfect timing just in time for spring…Beginning March 1st, I would like to recycle one of my successful services that I use to offer on the mainland called, “What’s In Your Makeup Bag”. Spring cleaning the house is always something as women we love to do with our home. As a makeup lover, spring cleaning your makeup bag is just as important. For the entire month of March, I would like to offer to the ladies in Hawaii a fun beauty event helping women to update their makeup bag with new spring items from Laura Mercier.
Being the Business Manager for Laura Mercier at Bloomingdale’s in Ala Moana Center, I wanted to do an event for the entire month instead of just 1 day when many women may not be available. I enjoy spending quality time with clients, teaching them how to better use their makeup. So, I decided the entire month of March would be more productive and allow for a more intimate consultation with the luxe products oficonic brand Laura Mercier, the pioneer of giving “Flawless Face”.
The new Spring Collection from Laura Mercier, embraces effortless elegance with “Sunday in Saint-Germain” signified by glowing skin, soft dusted pastel eyes and rich creamy lips. Seductive and full of surprises, “Sunday in Saint Germain” embarks on an optimistic journey in the city of love. Everything you need for a gorgeous Parisian look.
When: The Month of March
Where: Bloomingdale’s Ala Moana Center- Laura Mercier counter
Details: Clients bring in their makeup bag. Together we will go through your makeup bag and help select what go’s and what stay’s. During the makeup lesson/consultation, I will show you makeup techniques and proper usage. We will then develop a day makeup look on you incorporating products from Laura Mercier line. This service will take 1.5 hours so plan accordingly. You will leave with a face chart and a list of the products used to take home to assist you with your new custom makeup look. Refreshments will be served during your consultation.
While 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.
