You are so beautiful. Exactly as you are. You don’t need to change yourself in any way. You may have been raised in a society that told you should look a certain way to be beautiful.

You don’t need to change yourself in any way. You may have been raised in a society that told you should look a certain way to be beautiful. I can assure you they were wrong. Embrace who you are and look within to access the most beautiful part of yourself: Your soul. Your intentions. Your heart. This is what makes you beautiful… It’s the goodness that lives within you. So love your imperfections, your “flaws”, your uniqueness, the things that make you different. If you want to be more beautiful, try on kindness, loving compassion, generosity and gratitude. Give to others. Care for your health. Let your light shine from the inside out and BE YOURSELF, authentically and unabashedly. There is nothing more beautiful than that. 🌺

Recently shared on IG stories about my sensitive skin. My skin started to change and flare up earlier this year. It affected my self confidence and I saw myself putting on a lot more makeup than I usually did or avoiding going out altogether. I avoided pictures and when I do take them, they’re never uploaded without an edit and a camera filter. When I shared my insecurities with my loved ones, they assured me that I’ll always be beautiful in their eyes, that it isn’t that bad (this one gets to me the most. I know they’re trying their best but it’s between me wanting them to agree with me it’s bad and yet I’m not ready to accept if they actually say it’s bad 😂) , and that I was worth more than how I looked on the outside. I always end up snapping at them mid sentence with, “You’re lying. You don’t understand. It is bad”
A then said to me, “Ya, of course it’s bad, because that’s what you’re focused on, you look at your weaknesses and amplify it to be bigger than it actually is. The problem isn’t the physical weakness itself. It’s your perception of it”

BAM. I knew I had come face to face with my desire for perfection. And this desire for perfection led to plenty of self sabotage and negative talk. I won’t say that I’ve completely overcome it and that I am perfectly accepting of myself. I still use a camera filter (why oh why do we do this to ourselves) and wake up some days wishing that it will all just go away. Some days are good, some days are not so good. I think it’s harder now in this world we live in where perfection becomes more unattainable as it becomes a commodity (ironic, right?) because the expectation just gets higher and almost impossible to attain. It has however taught me to be more conscious of the negative talk I’ve been harming myself with and to make a mental shift to focus on accepting all parts of myself even the ones that I deem to be imperfect. Long road definitely, but one that I’ll need to do for myself because no amount of likes or praises can change the way I feel about myself and my body unless I learn to accept and love it for what it is.
The battle we have with ourselves is truly the hardest. But we still gotta try.

@limecrimemakeup Wet Cherry gloss "Frozen Cherry" Light blue and lavender icy shimmer. Catches light and shimmers like crazy. These come with a huge applicator doe foot and fat lil tube. They all smell AMAZING. Comfortable to wear but I have been seeing a lot of people ask questions about if these are sticky. Now, all Lipgloss is going to catch your hair when the wind blows (it sucks but if you wear any gloss, this is inevitable). I would consider these glosses as wet, not sticky. Sticky glosses usually make your lips stick together a little when pressed but that is not the case with these glosses. You don't need to pack on a lot, so I didn't have issues with bleeding into lines around the lips. .
@frostaholics Hair and Body Frosting in "Holosexual" on the cherry (a tiny bit of red glitter made its way on the cherry but is not a part of the Holo glitter) Quick drying gel glitter with beautiful silver Holo shine. 3 different sizes of Holo reflective glitters. Have a really awesome full festival look coming soon using their body frostings coming soon! .

🌴 Endless summer - okay, this is the obvious one, but I couldn’t omit it.⠀

🌴 You smile more often! When your make eye contact with local people, they always smile at you, and of course you smile back at them.⠀

🌴 Local people, especially in small villages, they are so open and helpful.⠀

🌴 Fresh fruits & veggies all year round! Some of my favorite ones (like durian or mangosteens) are even not available in my hometown, so I come ere to fill up my tank.⠀

🌴 Compact wardrobe - no need to buy and wear multilayered cold seasons clothes and shoes. A tee, shorts and flip-flops - and you’re all set.⠀

🌴 A simpler lifestyle and life attitude - here you forget about most of your troubles and routines you usually deal with at home.⠀

🌴 Being able to feel and look beautiful without wearing makeup. Sun and healthy diet do their job just fine, no foundation or lipstick needed.⠀

🌴 Here you’re not greeted according to your clothes. Although you’re sometimes greeted according to the color of your skin, but those are the realities of touristic places and I don’t blame them.⠀

You probably think male eyebrows is easier than the ladies. Wrong!
Although more male versus female eyebrows do have more hair and may appear thicker due to it, it definitely doesn’t mean it is full and looking its best.
Just like anyone of us, there are always areas to improve due to spare hair, missing depth and definition. I do believe in keeping men brows more natural, fuller looking and clean, yet not too define or they begin to look too feminine.
By all means, microblading is not easy and it is a case to case; therefore, men eyebrows work is equal to women. It takes just as much work, if not more. Honestly, just one wrong hair placement can mess up the whole eyebrow. I’m only here to help so don’t be afraid to like or personal dm for more info. 😉

Not in a "cool" way of talking about it but, I feel people just like talking about it, like it's a thing... I meet random people and sometime what they do is just talking about my waist, my hips or how confident I look. I always felt like I was an alien, body wise. In a way, I always felt ashamed of liking my own body. I even feel like I should not like my body because it's bigger 🤷🏼‍♀️ Like, I should wish to be smaller or on a diet. People even assume that I am unhealthy... well I am not unhealthy.... Also, because of this beautiful platform, I feel I should just empower myself and feel confident all the time but I don't. I feel I intimidate often others by my weird personality and my thick body. Don't get me wrong... I am not that weird but I know I am straightfoward, honest and often really unapologetic so I scare people. I have uge hips and I am not affraid to say in a crowded elevator that I need more space for my big ass.
I am so grateful for the people that want to break all the prejudices that we can have.
Embrace yourself as is, be you, be weird.
Thanks for all of you that is following me, for changing the way people think, one day at a time, one like at the time.

Confidence is such a funny thing. You don’t necessarily have to be the most fit person in the world or the most beautiful to have it. I’ve had high confidence in the past with just wearing sweatpants and no makeup. I’ve had high confidence when I had a full face of makeup on.. I’ve also had low confidence when I looked amazing.

Confidence is a state of mind. It’s taken me a long time to feel confident again with myself but yesterday I actually felt confident. And yes, fitting into a sports bra that hadn’t fit me in a year definitely helped 🙌🏻 but it’s more than that.
Let’s stop picking ourselves apart (I’m guilty of this so I need to work on it too) and start having a better state of mind with our bodies. After all, we have the power to change it to look and be however we want 💥

This is the extent of my makeup routine about 90% of the time, curled lashes, chapstick, and brow filler... ta da!! But seriously, motherhood has opened my eyes to so much, including things about myself and society in general. I used to focus on perfection and all the small details that don’t matter. I see it a lot these days on social media and real life especially with women, but men too.
Everybody looks airbrushed with filters or makeup or whatever it takes to look PERFECT. Even no makeup/ “natural” looks take probably more effort than they should.
As a model I’ve definitely felt the pressure and put a lot of that on myself to look a certain way.
But as a mother of a beautiful little boy I’m finding more and more that I’m much more comfortable with myself just as I am and not so consumed by what’s considered universally beautiful. But trust me I freak out over a break out from time to time too lol
... Plus, it’s so much work to put makeup on when a little hand comes and slaps it right off anyway lol 😂 💚
End rant and enjoy my raw selfies hahaha cause we def need more selfies on instagram 🤩 #latina #lotsofmoles #momundereyebags .

Stepping into Monday like a blimmin deep ass lunge! Yoga done, meditation did, makeup applied, on the go like a squid 🦑😂 I’ve not worn make up for quite a while, purely because I don’t see the constant need, I like to feel free and what not blablabla but man, a girl has to whip herself into action once in a while. I had a break for a while, but then, after the sudden change of hair, and an unfortunate weight loss, I haven’t felt so beautiful recently, even though I’m aware that really, it’s the inside that counts. Anyhoo... anyone that knows me knows the two extremes: Plastic fantastic, lips lashes and looks... compared to the striking contrast of the hobo, nature lover, extreme explorer. Balance is good, balance is great... but whatever you do, DO NOT HESITATE to be yourself, and love and cherish every single inch of your beautiful soul...( and sometimes look pretty and say girly stuff) #goodvibes #peace #love #lightworker #metaphysical #consciousness #awakening #happy #beautiful #soul #source #spiritual #meditation #hippie #universe #cosmos #zen #indigochild #oldsoul #meditate #instagood #vibe #thirdeyethoughts #vibes #oneness #energy #truth #thirdeye #wakeup

Lets talk beauty and skin care ✨: One of my 2018 goals is to have a flawless skin which is going so well with those products I’ve been using, so I had to share with you guys because REALLY my skin is glowing and I feel amazing everyday and I want you all beautiful ladies out there to feel the same way 💕

Those three products gave me a result in like 2 months, even my makeup start to look better, no lines and I don’t feel like the need to wear a lot of makeup anyways so I start to go with the natural look and a bit of natural eyeshadow shades and mascara and I’m good to go 💋

My daily routine is very simple 3 steps :

Wash your face with your favorite cleanser and make sure to be gentle ALWAYS be gentle.
Apply a toner and then here we go ‘ . - @diorbeautylovers :
Capture Youth - Glow Booster ✨
Add this sérum éclat with the moisturizer to boost your anti aging results. .
- @ctilburymakeup - Charlotte’s ICONIC Magic Cream moisturiser features ingredients to lift your complexion and intensely moisturise your skin. .
- @lamer : Eye concentrate 👁
One of the best sellers and personally my favorite so far. It’s a hydrating cream visibly diminishes dark circles and smoothes lines ✨ -

Those are my top 3 skin products and I totally recommend you guys to try them and give me your feedbacks 🖤

The Natural Woman (vs) the Fake Woman

In this day in age, beauty is defined by how much you can highlight & contour with tons of makeup, glow kits, and palettes resulting in a fake flawless face; how long and thick your fake eyelashes are; how long and blingy your fake nails are; how long and luxurious your fake hair is; how laid your fake edges are; and how much surgery and pain you can endure to get that snatched waist, fake big booty, fake big boobs, fake perfect nose, fake big lips, fake wrinkle-free face, fake complexion from fake tans or skin bleaching, and veneers for perfect fake teeth.

I am a size 14, brown-skinned woman & mother of 3 with stretch marks, a not-so-flat belly, cellulite, dark circles under my eyes, big nose, wearing a c-cup to support my droopy breastfed boobs, and with natural big poofy hair that is far from long and luxurious. I love every bit of myself without having the need to change anything, with the exception of enhancing my natural beautiful face with a little bit of makeup some days so I don’t look so tired and worn out from being a hard-working woman, wife, mother, and grandmother.
There are many women just like me who try their best to look good as their natural self, without using fake enhancements.
QUESTION:
Do you feel men are more attracted to and/or desire to be with a woman who is her natural self or a woman who strives to look perfect and flawless in every way even though everything about them is fake?

Be completely honest. I encourage men to join in the conversation as well! Us women want to know how you really feel!

This wasn't even a good day to not be wearing makeup because, as you can see, I have the remnants of a break out right between my eyes. However, I wanted to post this because I often get comments from younger girls telling me that I'm "goals" or complimenting me based on my physical appearance. I wanted to post this to show you that you don't need to wear makeup to be beautiful or confident and you shouldn't compare yourself to anyone else. No one looks like their social media pictures 100% of the time. Every one is human. We all get breakouts, have days where our self confidence is at an all time low, and spend time trying to change the very essence of who we are. Even if our Instagram feed depicts the perfect life, it doesn't mean we have one. However,  no one wants to post a bad picture online and that's okay. You should post whatever you want. It's perfectly fine to post pictures where you feel confident. The problem occurs when you find yourself constantly looking at other people's photos and comparing,  judging,  and trying to change yourself because of someone else's "perfect" image. So stop scrolling through social media and feeling bad about yourself. Stop trying to be someone you're not. Instead, remember that you (and everyone else) are unique and different. You will never be someone else and someone else will never be you. Embrace who you are, flaws and all, and just be you, because you are perfect just the way you are.
Ps: I know that last sentence is cliche but it's true.

So here’s a solution for me,, i DON’T wash them every day so they can have the “weekend curl” (yes i curl my hair on weekend), but on the top of my head started to look oily on the second day, and get worse on the third day.
So here’s my hair look on the fourth day (Swipe for pictures). Yess super oily on the top but looks okay on the bottom. And thank God for this Ellips Dry Shampoo @ellips_haircare Just one spray on my left, one spray on my right, and one spray on the back then massage my scalp anddd yes i got the perfect volumize hair all day in just one minute! Best part is that the smell is soo fresh and it came with a travel size that i can fit inside my bag and carry them everywhere. See my hair from oily to this beautiful volume by swiping my pictures. #HairReadyToGo #EllipsDryShampooGiveaway

As a women I don't think I should ever justify why I feel the need to be sexy, when I share selfies, professional shots, nude or implied images or anything to do with my life, I NEVER do it for gratification from men.

As a women I don't think I should ever justify why I feel the need to be sexy, when I share selfies, professional shots, nude or implied images or anything to do with my life, I NEVER do it for gratification from men. That's the last thing I think of.
I think about how I feel strong and empowered. I love looking at beautiful women, my career surrounds me with gorgeous, strong and Independant ladies and I try to support them. Even if it's just a like or a 😍...it makes a difference.
My Instagram follows is mostly made up of makeup profiles, cute animals and beautiful women. I like looking at them, it makes me feel good.
In the 10+ years of doing this, I've met so many amazing and talented people, got to travel to countries I never thought I would, been published in books and magazines across the world. And I'm proud.
It's taken me 35 years to be this comfortable with myself, with my body. If that offends anyone then they don't have to look my way.

The picture in the middle is my skin currently at 7months Post Roaccutane. I have suffered from cystic acne for over 11years. I tried everything from herbal medication to every single oral & topical medication prescribed by my doctor and nothing would work for me. I suffered a lot in my teenage life upwards with bullying and my confidence sucked even till I hit adulthood. Being called spotty and told that everyone can play ‘dot to dot’ on my face, it was a hard battle to face day in and day out. I always questioned myself why me? I was told I would grow out of it or it’s just hormones etc. But nope, this horrible terror wouldn’t stop breeding on my face. A few of my family members recommended Roaccutane & I came to see the benefits of it myself from the results of the medication on them. Honestly it was the best course of medication I took & I can’t express how confident and beautiful it has made me feel inside and out. People say ‘don’t listen to bully’s ignore them your beautiful the way you are it’s about what’s on the inside’, that is true, but as an individual I truly believe that if there is something that makes you feel depressed, upset, makes you feel and look unattractive, you have every right in hell to fix that issue to bring that peace and confidence to your mind, heart and soul! everyone deserves to feel beautiful and confident, and most importantly to feel that inner happiness because if your heart isn’t feeling it then you need to do something about it.
If you would like more information on my journey with acne & would like me to do a YouTube video about the Pros and Cons of my treatment then please do comment and let me know! 💖

I got a lot of messages asking about my cosmetic line. A lot of people were interested in the process. So, I decided to make a separate post on this.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As you can see in the video, these lipsticks don’t come off and won’t leave a mark (spouse approved) — make out all you want. They won’t smear. They only way to take it off, is makeup remover or oil. These lipsticks are super pigmented and creamy. One swipe and you got it...no need to reapply. They are MATTE...unlike most matte liquid lipsticks, these will not make your lips dry and cracked up. It won’t look like a desert 🌵 😂 @Shivacosmetics lip kits are Gluten Free, Paraben Free, Cruelty Free, and vegan friendly. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Lashes — for 6 months, I got lash extensions. They were a pain to keep up with. I had to lay on the table for an hour every 2-3 weeks to get them filled. They were beautiful, but needed a lot of attention. I couldn’t sleep on my side. I couldn’t rub my eyes. I didn’t wear eyeliner the whole time because it could ruin them. It was a lot of money too...I paid $100 (including tip) for each session. And they ended up leaving my lashes damaged when I took them off. SO...I decided to add lashes to my line. These lashes are FLUFFY BUT LIGHT. They have a thin band. Easy to apply. And they last 25-30 uses. And the packaging is bomb 💣 😏 ⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This whole process took a LONG TIME. From researching labs to work with and creating the best formula. There was a lot of back and forth with the labs and figuring out what the right formula is and testing them out. Logo and Package design. Trying different packages. Totally a fun process ❤️ I loved every minute of it. ⠀

Current favourite lip combo: @milanicosmeticsnz Amore Matte Lip Crème in Precious 11 & Hypnotic Lights Holographic Lip Topper in Luminous Light 04. ———————————————————————————
•Review•
Amore Matte Lip Crème in Precious 11 - Firstly this colour is absolutely beautiful on any skin tone. The Amore Matte Lip Crème are super matte and once on they don’t budge seriously you can have a Big Mac and this lipstick won’t move! They can be a bit drying but what matte lipstick isn’t so it’s best to use a hydrating lip balm underneath. If you do have dry lips I recommend using a lip scrub before application. They apply smoothly with out being patchy and dry matte quickly. If this sound like something for you definitely check out the full range. Available @farmersnz for $18.99.
Hypnotic Lights Holographic Lip Topper in Luminous Light 04 - I actually haven’t been the biggest fan of lip toppers in the past mainly because I thought they were glorified lip glosses and the beauty industry is marketing them as “Toppers”. Now I’ve only tried this one topper and it’s convinced me I need more in my life. This topper is absolutely beautiful as it can really transform a flat lip colour and give it more dimension for the perfect pout. There is glitter in it so it can be a bit scary but once on top of a lipstick you’ll have a beautiful eye catching look that you can still get away with wearing it to the office as it can be paired with your favourite nude or pink lipstick. It also has a iridescent purple/blue hue which the camera couldn’t pick up. You can also use it just in the centre of your lips to give you more of a pouty look. Available @farmersnz for $22.99

These @milanicosmeticsnz lip products are available in store @farmersnz if you want to give it a try but if you can’t get to a Farmers you can pick it up online @farmersnz @beautyblissnz @makeup.co.nz

Anyhow...
I just came up with a super fun idea to help YOU!
💃🏼
One aspect I love about food photography is the post editing in @lightroom Now, there is a lot to say about editing and some photographers will say a good photographer won't need any editing. I don't think that's the ideal point of view when it comes to food photography 🤔A beautiful photo is like a beautiful woman. She only gets more beautiful with a great outfit, light and some makeup.
☺️
Anyhow, I love eding pictures. Sooo... I want to edit YOUR photo and maybe help you out. Leave a comment below, or tag someone who would love to join. I will randomly pick a comment and will DM you to email me your unedited (preferably) RAW picture. I will share the result in my stories or on my feed.
💫💫
It can be a ''bad picture'' that you would like to see edited or maybe you already edit gorgeously, but would like to see how your picture would look like if edited differently?
💫💫
So let's go! I'm already 💯 % stoked!

I think the hardest thing to be taught is that you have to alter your natural self to be “neat” , “professional “ or to simply “look the part” as a young adult ...
As a young woman , I do not see the need to cover up anymore. To plaster myself with makeup and straighten my hair every day just to simply please a small minded idea that every “professional” and “powerful” women look a certain way.

I choose to look after myself instead and to present myself the way Mother Nature intended , with my flaws , scares , bumps and imperfections. What color my lips are painted will not reflect my ability to speak, the state of my hair will not dictate the knowledge my brain contains.
Now don’t get me wrong, presentation is important ... but that does not mean I have to cover up what makes me human. The most important part about getting up everyday is honoring your body and being kind to yourself by loving the raw , beautiful creation that you are regardless of social standards. I love makeup and trying new hairstyles , but for myself on my own terms , not as a routine procedure to be socially accepted. Natural or unnatural, we shouldn’t be forced into feeling that we should look a certain way. We should have the choice, everyday to look the way we want ... whether that look is a makeup free brown girl with curly hair , or a glitter queen with sleek straight hair. I should have the freedom of choice with no judgment ✨ #MondayRant #happymonday 🌻🌱 [ growing thoughts ]

So many people don’t truly understand what Ombré Powder Eyebrows truly look like. Microblading is a completely different method of Semi Permanentmakeup that consists of a totally different method of tattooing that is mimicking the natural hair by tattooing hair stokes on the eyebrows. Powder ombré eyebrows look very intense right after they are done unlike microblading which most artist show pictures right after completion. Powder ombré brows show their true beauty after they heal and peel. This photo is the perfect example of what powder ombré eyebrows look like healed 5 weeks after the initial appointment. As you can see the look of the brow is soft powdery and natural, perfect for everyday and can be glammed up for a full face of makeup. So many of people want to see what the eyebrows look like immediately post tattooing and quite frankly it can be a little scary. With microblading it looks it’s best right after when it’s fresh but healed can be a different story. I want to stress to all the potential clients that my work looks the best after it’s healed and not right after. When microblading heals a lot of clients I’ve had to re-do their brows using a powder ombre because the microblading doesn’t give them that precise shape that they initially desired. I can achieve the sharpness in my shaping that microblading cannot. Plus you don’t have to still wake up every morning and draw on a shape even after getting your eyebrows tattooed. It’s perfect for ladies with no brows or ladies who have brows but want a different shape of higher arch. My client today returned for the free (included in $450 price) retouch that is vital to your eyebrows. This appointment addresses any minor spotting or darkening of color that the clients brows may need. It essentially perfects them and locks in the color. We recommend clients return yearly to retouch their color and keep their brows nice and beautiful. Pricing for the brows are $450 with deposit required at time of booking. Please CALL ONLY at 3103165500 to schedule appointment we do not answer DM regarding booking or questions, you will have to call the salon for that information. #semipermanentmakeup #semipermanenteyebrows

We were headed out to a party with friends and I didn't want to wear my finger splints because, to me, they draw glaring attention to what's been going on. My husband knew though that this was something I *should* have been doing. It only took a few minutes of trying to hold a wine glass that I had to sheepishly speak with the bartender and ask if he could provide a stemless wine glass because my fingers were throbbing.
.

I do this a lot. From choosing to not wear my Quell because I want to wear shorts to refusing repeatedly the kt-tape that I need for bracing. It isn't just because I'm self-concious, but it is the commentary from people that bothers me. If you think I'm blowing things out of proportion, ask me about the guy who asked why I was wearing my ankle brace so high and then laughed. (*cringe*).
.
.
A girlfriend sent me an article on things people might not know about people with a chronic illness. One of these had to do with appearance being really important to them. They spend a lot of time on things like hair, makeup, and dressing well. I know this isn't true of all people (because, geesh, that is time-consuming and exhausting), but it has been true for me. What it boils down to is that this is the ONLY thing I can control. That is, often, why people think you are fine though, even when you aren't.
.
.
If you know someone with a chronic illness and they always look like they have their shit together, chances are that they don't. I put more effort into my appearance when I'm in a flare than when I'm not.

If there is anything that we can learn from the horrible events that have transpired in the news, it is that we ALL need to check in on the people we love more. And if you know someone that is battling an illness (mental or physical), let them know you care. Even if they look perfectly fine. No one is going to hold up a sign telling you that they are in pain. This, truly, has been one of the most isolating things that has happened in my life and I have a beautiful circle who loves me. Check on your people. ❤️ #chronicillness #ehlersdanlossyndrome

You are beautiful. No makeup, no filter, no thinner, fatter, taller or shorter. This is the message I wish I could believe deep down, I know I’m not alone...

No makeup, no filter, no thinner, fatter, taller or shorter. This is the message I wish I could believe deep down, I know I’m not alone... I look at myself and see only imperfection... but I know, in my head, that this shouldn’t be the case... but yet it’s so hard to believe in my heart... We need to look at ourselves the way our God and Saviour sees us. You ARE loved. You ARE valuable, in fact, you are IRREPLACEABLE, ONE OF A KIND and so very PRECIOUS.
So from a broken girl, who struggles with depression, self doubt, low self esteem and anxiety, don’t give up. Don’t give in. We need to stop listening to the voices in our own minds and look to Jesus, read what HE has to say about you. “This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins.”
‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:10‬ ‭NLT‬‬
“How precious are your thoughts about me, O God. They cannot be numbered!”
‭‭Psalms‬ ‭139:17‬ ‭NLT‬‬
“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
‭‭Matthew‬ ‭11:28‬ ‭NLT‬‬

This is the makeup look I teach in my Master Your Makeup Course. I love it because it is classic, clean, fresh and fabulous! The thousands of women who have taken my course have not only mastered this look but they have found the real beauty that can only be felt from within. This course is my passion. My love. My message of hope to all women out there. You are the creator of your own reality. YOU. If you don’t feel pretty it’s because you aren’t thinking pretty thoughts. True beauty comes from knowing that the hard stuff we go thru in life DOES NOT DEFINE US. We can take those trials and turn them into strength. But YOU are the only person who can make that shift. No one is going to do it for you. Stop waiting for happiness to come. Create the happiness. It is all about shifting your mindset. As women, we MUST rise above this. We are all BEAUTIFUL!!!! My goal in teaching this two week course is to help you feel beautiful without one ounce of makeup. But many women need that little bit of confidence on the outside to help them start looking at the inside. It’s a fine line but it’s a beautiful one. And I want to help you find it. Class starts Monday! I hope to see you there!! Use the code INSTAGRAM for $10 off until Friday! #moneytalks #moneytribe #makeuptutorial #makeup #womenempowerment #love

So many people don’t truly understand what Ombré Powder Eyebrows truly look like. Microblading is a completely different method of Semi Permanentmakeup that consists of a totally different method of tattooing that is mimicking the natural hair by tattooing hair stokes on the eyebrows. Powder ombré eyebrows look very intense right after they are done unlike microblading which most artist show pictures right after completion. Powder ombré brows show their true beauty after they heal and peel. This photo is the perfect example of what powder ombré eyebrows look like healed 5 weeks after the initial appointment. As you can see the look of the brow is soft powdery and natural, perfect for everyday and can be glammed up for a full face of makeup. So many of people want to see what the eyebrows look like immediately post tattooing and quite frankly it can be a little scary. With microblading it looks it’s best right after when it’s fresh but healed can be a different story. I want to stress to all the potential clients that my work looks the best after it’s healed and not right after. When microblading heals a lot of clients I’ve had to re-do their brows using a powder ombre because the microblading doesn’t give them that precise shape that they initially desired. I can achieve the sharpness in my shaping that microblading cannot. Plus you don’t have to still wake up every morning and draw on a shape even after getting your eyebrows tattooed. It’s perfect for ladies with no brows or ladies who have brows but want a different shape of higher arch. My client today returned for the free (included in $450 price) retouch that is vital to your eyebrows. This appointment addresses any minor spotting or darkening of color that the clients brows may need. It essentially perfects them and locks in the color. We recommend clients return yearly to retouch their color and keep their brows nice and beautiful. Pricing for the brows are $450 with deposit required at time of booking. Please CALL ONLY at 3103165500 to schedule appointment we do not answer DM regarding booking or questions, you will have to call the salon for that information. #semipermanentmakeup #semipermanenteyebrows

Traditional Maiko/Geisha makeup on @ikumiyoshimatsu yesterday. 🌸She comes from a family of Japanese theater performers and we worked together to make the look 100% authentic. I really didn’t want to do some Hollywood BS interpretation on the makeup. To be able to create this look on a Japanese woman who’s experienced the look first hand was so exciting. Even though I didn’t have the traditional products (in Tokyo I went to a theatrical makeup store and asked them to show me how to do the proper Maiko/Geisha foundation and it is COMPLICATED!!!) 🌸I tried to replicate the effect as best I could. I used a white theatrical base from @fardelcosmetics with a beauty blender and dense synthetic brush and instead of a cream or powder blush used @mehronmakeup water activated colors to blend the perfect “cherry blossom pink” 🌸for the cheeks, outer corner of the eyes and inner corner of eyes/bridge of nose so that it wouldn’t be streaky or too dense. I also used the Mehron product to mix the red for the eyes. 🌸The coolest thing I learned was that the eyebrows are done in brown first and then you add red powder over the brown to get this beautiful kind of indescribable color. (Of course) I used the @surrattbeautyiquid eyeliner to do her black line along the lashes and since it was a long day I used the @narsissist PowerMatte lipstick in Don’t Stop which didn’t budge. 🌸Kumi showed me pictures of her and her family in full theatrical makeup, which was amazing, and gave me props for me recreation which was one of the biggest compliments of my career.🌸Also, this is exactly why I have a massive storage closet of makeup. You never know when you’ll need a pure white base or movie dirt!!! #makeuphoarder #maikomakeup #maiko #geishmakeup #geisha #fionastiles

When I started all the back in 2014 I didn’t necessarily have a passion for makeup or knew how to put it on properly, I was just experimenting with different ways to showcase my art. Turns out it was going to become an almost crucial part of my life because this account and my makeup looks have been one of the only concrete things in my life. It totally gave me a place to completely escape to through the ups and (mostly) downs of the past 4 years. Also don’t get me wrong...I love expressing myself with makeup but there was one point where I never wanted to create anything ever again and was incredibly close to deleting this page. I look at where I am now I’m so shocked because sometimes I feel like I haven’t progressed at all, but it turns out that I’ve come a very very VERY long way because my eyebrows were traGIC! If there is anything I want you take from this entire post it is to not give up on what you love and what makes you happy not matter what anyone tells you. Never EVER stop expressing yourself, spreading your art and sharing your uniqueness with the world, because the world definitely needs it at the moment! No matter what stage you are at in your life right now always trust the process, nothing comes over night and it’s very easy to forget this. If you are thinking of starting up something new like an Instagram page pleaaaase do it for you, do it because you love it, to showcase your talent...not just for fame, followers and money because you’ll see it’s difficult to find true happiness there. Also don’t hesitate to shoot me a message if you ever want any advice or need a little support because I will always be there! OKAY if you’ve made it this far you are the real ones and I love you with my whole heart, you are beautiful and you are worthy and I can’t begin to thank you 💕 #trusttheprocess #loveyourself

And she told me she would love a makeover but she can’t afford it,and just then I knew I wanted to make her happy.. 💥💥💥 You need to see the look on her face when she looked in the mirror after her Makeover. Close to tears she said Is this really me?I’ve never looked this beautiful.Why didn’t God create me this perfect? And close to tears I also told her,Makeup or no makeup,you are beautiful just the way you are. God makes no mistakes,we are created in his image and likeness... 💥💥💥Dear Jewels,Don’t let the World define You,because no matter what you think no one is perfect. We all have our imperfections and that is what makes us so unique. Embrace your uniqueness and do not bend or shape yourself into a mould for other people.
Even when people make hurtful comments,stare at you openly or laugh,don’t let it get to you.

Dear little girl,
Who are you? Are you really who you think you are, who they think you are, or who you portray yourself to be? I feel sorry for you. You’re forced to be strong because strong is the only choice you have. You can’t show weakness because that’s what they crave. You’re screaming inside for help but carry the biggest smile every where you go trying to help others letting them know they will be okay... but.... but are you okay? Yes you’re fine right? Well at least that’s what you tell everyone. You wake up do your makeup and confidence level is on ten but off of social media how do you really feel within? Sad, crushed, lost maybe? I know that’s it because a lot of people have proved to you they’re shady? Right ? Yessss right. So far so good the act you have been putting on has been great...steady trying to cleanse your heart so it won’t be full of hate. Makeup hides a lot so that’s why you like it so bold.. I see it also hides the emptiness in your soul. You laugh and joke with everybody all day right? But why don’t you tell them how you feel in bed at night? The world can never imagine. A letter to myself. 💭 if there is a woman who sat and read this I assume you know the feeling. Life is taking a toll on you. Everybody you trusted and loved has folded. Nothing makes sense to you anymore. The worlds look to you for answers and look up to you and you’re never allowed to be the weak one. On the outside you feel soooooo beautiful and everybody thinks you’re soooo beautiful but in the inside you’re just empty not understanding why you don’t feel you’re enough. You are enough! When I speak motivation to y’all most times I’m typing to myself that’s the crazy part. I’m just aware it’s others that need to see it too who probably not as strong as me. I literally am going to pray for myself of course tonight && to the females who feel like me even if they don’t wanna admit it it’s cool baby I’ll hit my knees for me and you. Tomorrow will be a new day and I will be back motivational like always well like every other day lol but tonight I’m just sharing a truth instead of keeping it all in my diary 🤷🏾‍♀️. Okay bye. ✌🏾

Repost from @jigyasa_07
Good read from one of Sonam Kapoor's articles... "So, for every teen girl leaning into her bedroom mirror, wondering why she doesn’t look like a celebrity: Please know that nobody wakes up like this. Not me. Not any other actress. (Not even Beyoncé. I swear.) Here’s the real deal: Before each public appearance, I spend 90 minutes in a makeup chair. Three to six people work on my hair and makeup, while a professional touches up my nails. My eyebrows are tweezed and threaded every week. There’s concealer on parts of my body that I could never have predicted would need concealing.

I’m up at 6am every day and at the gym by 7:30. I exercise for 90 minutes and, some evenings, again before bed. It’s someone’s full-time job to decide what I can and cannot eat. There are more ingredients in my face packs than in my food. There’s a team dedicated to finding me flattering outfits.

After all that, if I’m still not “flawless” enough, there are generous servings of Photoshop.

I’ve said it before, and I will keep saying it: It takes an army, a lot of money, and an incredible amount of time to make a female celebrity look the way she does when you see her. It isn’t realistic, and it isn’t anything to aspire to.

Aspire to confidence. Aspire to feeling pretty and carefree and happy, without needing to look any specific way.

And the next time you see a 13-year-old girl gazing wistfully at a blemish-free, shiny-haired Bollywood actress on a magazine cover, bust the myth of flawlessness for her.

Tell her how beautiful she is. Praise her smile or her laugh or her mind or her gait.

Don't let her grow up believing that she's flawed, or that there's anything she's lacking for looking different from a woman on a billboard. Don’t let her hold herself to a standard that’s too hig

You do not need to be someone else’s idea of “perfect.” You just have to be the best version of YOU.
Don’t let your head get spun comparing yourself to some airbrushed provocatively posed “fitspo” Instagram pics that will mess with your mind.
.
You control who you follow on here, be mindful of the subliminal messages you’re taking in when you see stuff that makes you feel some kind of undeserved shame for not looking like “that person.” That person doesn’t always look like the photo of themselves in real life.
.

A picture is merely a moment, it can be manipulated with lighting, angles, effects, makeup, etc. and it can also be created with work, consistency and patience - and you KNOW the difference between the genuine (it inspires) and the BS (it makes us feel less) when you see it.
.

A healthy body is the BYPRODUCT of a healthy lifestyle, and that includes the way you eat, train and sleep, sure, but even more importantly it’s how you think, talk and show up in life.
.

That’s what makes you really sexy.
That’s what is at the foundation of fitness.
.

You are beautiful, and trust me I see you, every day, ROCK that baby, because that's what gets the work done and that daily GET UP SHOW UP AND NEVER GIVE UP ATTITUDE is what makes you that way.

De-constructing the idea that you need soooooooo many products to create one beautiful look. I want women to feel beautiful in their real skin, not what Instagram or anyone makes you feel that you need to be poppin. It’s okay to have freckles, embrace your oily skin, it’s normal to have hyper-pigmentation, acne happens, life happens & simple makeup techniques can work to enhance your natural self. This is the main inspiration for SKIN GLASS & I only hope that I can continue to show women of all backgrounds, skin tones, skin types & textures that you’re not any less because you don’t wear more! ❤️

I don’t share this often but my skin has been on a roller coaster ride for the past couple of years. For someone who’s active, the truth is, I’ve always been super self-conscious about how I look especially after I workout because of my dry skin, the terrible breakouts and acne scars. That had a huge impact on my self-confidence especially when I’m expected to be in the public. 😔
.
No matter how well I eat, little things like certain foods, work stress or lack of sleep will flare up my skin. This whole journey has made me realised that the health of my skin is a reflection of my emotional & mental state of being and I need to first look after that. 🙌
.
My turning point happened on 18th January 2018. After coming back from a long family vacation, I was feeling really low as I had to get back to filming videos and photoshoots. I didn’t want to be in front of the camera. Rather than trying to hide behind lots of makeup, I told myself “I’m not going to let my scars define me. My confidence and strength comes from within, and that’ll shine to my audience.” .
It’ll be a long journey but I’m proud to say that I don’t feel that self-conscious anymore when I workout and sweat with my bare face. 🙃
.
You should NOT be defined by your skin. Everyone deserves to feel beautiful. When did you feel most comfortable in your skin? Share your story with me! ☺️

In honor of #nationalwomensday here are 3 women who have impacted my life in a way that I didn't think was even possible. First and foremost my mom, you all know how much I love my mom and important she is to me. She's the woman I look up to, the rolemodel for the kind of mom I want to be. She taught me how to talk, walk, cook, and clean. She has told me how beautiful I am when I don't feel beautiful, she has reminded me of my worth, she has had my back through horrible relationships. She is woman of the year in my book! Second is my grandma. I love that crazy woman😂 she's so kind, caring and generous, maybe a little to generous. She's funny and so much fun to be around! She's the best shopping buddy EVER! And she spoils me to no end, even in my 20's. Third, Pastor Mel. This amazing woman of God has helped me grow in ways I didn't think I could. She challenges me, stretches me and uses me to help me become a better Christian. She's so understanding and I'm so thankful for her when I need understanding. Melanie Francis shows me that I CAN be a strong woman in ministry and that IT IS POSSIBLE to be just as qualified as a man. God really blessed me with these three ladies! Lastly there's a picture of myself. I AM A WOMAN. I AM STRONG, BEAUTIFUL, PASSIONATE, CARING and GOD LOVING. But I'm these things because of the women in my life (and God). I may get on myself a lot. But I am so proud of myself and you know what, I love myself! I love that I'm not perfect, I love my curly hair, I love my freckles, I love my curves! Women of the world, I encourage you to love yourself! Love your perfect imperfections! Love yourself when your in sweats, chillin eating ice cream and love yourself when your makeup is snatched and you're rockin that black dress!! We are strong, beautiful, smart, and talented! And to all the other women in my life that I didn't mention, I love you! And I'm so lucky to have you!! ❤❤❤ #nationalwomansday

I might regret this post tomorrow but here goes nothing: Yesterday for the first time in like 3 years (and before that since I was about 13) I left my house without makeup on. I really did it, and today I'm really doing it and tomorrow I might just do it too. I posted videos of myself without makeup on, went out in public, made a YouTube video and now I'm posting this pic with no filter or makeup to permanently remind myself that I don't need makeup on or to be perfectly symmetrical to be pretty. You don't need to look perfect in order to be absolutely stunning and attractive people. You be yourself and rock the way you've uniquely been created and that will seep out into everything you do and will inevitably make you beautiful. Hear me when I say, I don't think makeup or being good looking is bad. I fully intend on wearing it again, probably even tonight (because it's fun) but I do think it's the mindset behind the standards we place on ourself that can be negative. It's easy to forget that a pretty face or totally shredded body never changed the world...who you are changes the world. Kind hearts, inventive and courageous people are what change the world not perfect skin or killer abs. What really scares you that you should do starting today? I want to challenge you to be fearless, be bold, be brave. Be you. YOU DO YOU BOO. ILY 💓💕✨🎉🙌 #nomakeuprevolution

On another note, I don’t wear makeup anymore that much but damn when you get the right makeup artist does it make you feel good and you know when you don’t need a filter. I need to wear that shimmer stuff more. I finally bought some from Mac but ain’t no way I can make myself look like this. Makeup by @kanizali.

The swelling from my surgery is finally gone down and I no longer look like an abused wife 🙌🙌🙌 always a good thing. 2. I actually did my hair and makeup for the first time in weeks, and I'm feeling pretty cute if I must admit. And last, 3. A very special package came in my mail today and I'm wearing it in this pic. 📿📿📿
When I was in Sweden earlier this summer, I got to meet so many family members that I never knew I had. Although Sweden is mostly atheist, my entire family is Pentecostal. Many of them are ministers in their church. They take their belief in Christ seriously, and that was so beautiful to me.
While I was there, I noticed that every member of my family had on a tiny little cross necklace. Some were silver, and some gold. I don't normally wear a cross, but I wanted to get one while I was there to remind me to live my beliefs, but to also remind me where I come from.
I asked one of my cousins where I could get the cross they all wore. He took me to the jewelry store, and I ended up getting a tiny, solid gold cross necklace, that is an exact match to theirs. I've been waiting for it to arrive ever since I left. Well, today it came, and I couldn't love it more if I tried!
Even though I'm not of the same religion as my Swedish family, my belief in God, and love for my Savior, are the driving forces in my life. They give me the courage and strength, I need to make it through each and everyday. I'm so thankful for the gift of knowing that I'm a daughter of God, and He loves me. It brings me peace in hard times, and calmness when things are crazy. It guides my life daily, and I'm eternally grateful for parents that taught me these truths.
My journey "home" this summer, changed my life for the better. Knowing where I come from, and who I am, is the greatest feeling I've ever experienced. Sweden changed my life for the better, and I'm so thankful to have a little gold cross to remind me of that each day. .

Something occurred to me during our last vacation: whenever I leave NYC, my skin looks pretty much perfect. It can handle any product I throw at it, it has a dewy glow and, whether I’m in the UK, Miami or Spain, I constantly look like I just walked out of the best facial. Now, you might say that the one thing these places have in common is that I’m there on vacation. And yes, blue light from the computer, recycled office air and stress are all enemies of good skin. But I think that maybe it could be that my skin doesn’t like New York water. The world-famous, delicious Eau de NYC. And so I decided to do like my mother, my darling @joshrosebrook and countless French aestheticians and try waterless cleansing. The idea is simple: while it’s impossible to avoid water altogether (a girl’s gotta shower), I don’t wash my face. Instead, I use a combination of different approaches. The first, is the traditional method of a cream cleanser on a cotton pad. The choice of cream cleanser matters: I find that some don’t actually remove well without water. @amalabeauty’s lovely Rejuvenate works perfectly. The other traditional method is using micellar water. I found my perfect micellar match in @ambar.beauty pink gem. It’s the only micellar water I’ve ever tried that doesn’t make me feel like I need to remove it after cleansing. It makes short work of heaviest makeup and sunscreen and leaves zero residue. On days when I miss oil cleansing or want a deeper cleanse, I follow @joshrosebrook method for “dry” oil cleansing. After applying either Josh’s beautiful and whisper-light Herbal Infusion Oil or @monasterymade’s prettily scented Rose I remove it with a dry cloth (the @demamielskin ones are amazing) and then wipe off any residue with @joshrosebrook’s miraculous Hydrating Accelerator - cleansing and treating in one. I can’t say that my skin is looking it’s vacation best just yet, but I will continue my waterless experiment for a while. If anything, it’s teaching me the value of doing less and helping me appreciate a fabulous cleansing method to boot! And how about you guys? Any of you shun tap water? 💦

The more and more I post pics of me with “obvious” make up on (as opposed to very neutral make up) I get more and more comments like, “you are beautiful as you are. You don’t need make up.” ... One time a number of people on one of my live videos, kept suggesting, “Maybe if you didn’t wear make up for awhile, you’d learn to love your face the way it is.” And I have seen this over and over again on other people’s pictures and videos.

These people didn’t stop to think what their statements and assumptions said about my or others character over all. They assumed we wore make up out of insecurity, or that we always wear makeup and don’t even know how we look without it. Or that we don’t like ourselves without it. These kinds of statements are undermining, underhanded and usually unintentional (that’s a lot of “un’s I know haha”!) ...
.
Truth is, I used to be insecure about WEARING make up! It’s taken me years to realize I didn’t have to do it perfectly or be a YouTube make up girl, or a certain age or whatever... to enjoy and explore the world of make-up. I also didn’t have access to safer versions of make up like I do now, and yes, this was important to me, even 15 years ago ...
.
Moral of the story...let’s be careful not to disguise insults and character assassinations as compliments. It’s so easy to do, especially with us ladies towards each other! And often we don’t even hear it in our words. I know I’m guilty of this, and most often, if I had just taken a moment to think through my words and to see my assumptions... I would have totally changed my thinking, my heart and my statement ...
.
It’s that radical self honesty which changes us, and in turn changes the world. We’re always talking about, society this and society that... well, we are society. And when we realize the “we” part, that’s when WE have the power to change the society part! (And this includes NOT telling people they could use a little color as well or cover that gray, haha! Just let them be who they be! Incorrect grammar and all!)

The first time I ever realized I was a dark skinned girl was when my dad nicknamed me “kaali” also known as kalo. In Bangladesh kalo is often a term used to describe dark skinned people.Don’t get me wrong I’m not complexed by my dads nickname for me. He called me kaali with lots of love and admiration. He wanted to give positive to the word so I wouldn’t feel the insult when someone would use it against me. One time I found a tube of Fair and Lovely ( brightening cream) in my moms stash of makeup. I secretly applied it. My dad eventually caught me. He forbid me from wearing it, telling me that the cream will ruin my natural beauty. He taught me my skin is perfectly fine the color it is. Oddly, grown up me kinda feels my dad knew I would get put down for my skin tone eventually but he didn’t want it to come from him or my mom. But, my mom did everything in her power to keep me from getting dark. I don’t blame my mom, she loves me. It’s a typical desi mom thing. Being fair is such a strong beauty standard embedded into older desi women and society it is all they know. When I hit my teen years the darker skin started to bother me. Being often told I was less pretty because I’m dark. It was confusing honestly. My American friends told me I was beautiful and my desi peeps said I was dark. Major complex for me. This complex led me to believe I was fair medium. I use to buy foundation one shade lighter than me to satisfy the aunties. Until my husband nayyar was like no babe! Wear your colour. But I believed I was wearing my color. The denial was so strong. 🤦🏻‍♀️ although my dad taught me at a young age my dark skin was beautiful no need to hide or change. The beauty standards to be fair skinned meant your beautiful and worthy was shoved down my throat every time I looked around. On tv, magazines, people comments. 4 years ago I changed that complex in myself. I started to wear my actual foundation color. Which was so limited to find by the way. But I found some. I changed my view on my skin. Dark is divine. All skin colors are beautiful. I used @mentedcosmetics for this look. They believe every women belongs in the world of beauty.

Love yourself, girl, or nobody will
Oh, you a woman? I don't know how you deal
With all the pressure to look impressive and go out in heels
I feel for you
Killing yourself to find a man that'll kill for you
You wake up, put makeup on
Stare in the mirror but its clear that you can't face what's wrong
No need to fix what God already put his paint brush on...
To all the women with the flaws, know it's hard my darling
You wonder why you're lonely and your man's not calling
You keep falling victim cause you're insecure
And when I tell you that you're beautiful you can't be sure
'Cause he don't seem to want you back
And it got you asking
So all you see is what you lacking
Not what you packing
Take it from a man that loves what you got
And baby girl you're a star, don't let 'em tell you you're not
Now is it real? Eyebrows, fingernails, hair
Is it real? if it's not, girl you don't care
Cause what's real is something that the eyes can't see
That the hands can't touch
That them broads can't be, and that's you
-J. Cole

"Easy you already are beautiful!" Kian says sweetly. "Now close your eyes!"
You close your eyes and feel loan putting on your eyeshadow,then your blush,then your lip gloss. "Okay,now open your eyes." You see kian putting down the Vaseline and picking up the mirror. The only difference is your lips are shiny. "Kian you didn't even put anything on!" You say confused. "I know, like I said earlier you are already beautiful, you don't need makeup!"

After the recent photos I posted I’ve been DMed sooooo much with questions about the pregnancy. So let me just clear some stuff up to avoid more DM flooding.
1. Yes, I still get morning sickness at 7+ months. I take pills to keep it bearable and will be taking them for the duration of my pregnancy
2. No, I’m not finally glowing (lol 😂). I had the best makeup artist come in and give me a natural look that clearly worked! And good lighting and angles help
3. No, my confidence and insecurity issues haven’t gone away. I’ve had the mantra “fake it till you make it” since jr high... it got me through my photoshoot and will get me through life.
4: No, I don’t need to be preached to or yelled at with the “you’re beautiful “ and “you look fine”. I’m allowed to be in my feelings... if I’m not feeling the way I look, your words won’t convince me. I just have to wait out this phase. Thanks for the encouragement though. I love y’all ...but seriously, let it go
5: I’m not gaining much of any weight. Yes, I’ve tried everything you’re gonna suggest...leave it alone.
I know I’m “all belly” and I know I’m “so small”. I agree. Ok?!.....I get it! ... Stop!! 😂
Mkay... hope that answers everything. If y’all seriously have questions then leave em in the comments. Maybe I’ll do a Q&A video about the true struggle (and blessing) it is to carry this baby bunnie

I love the art and I won't lie to you, I do wear it to boost my confidence too. (I'm slowly working on that everyday) 💕
I don't need it, but I find it fun to do. But I just want you to know that you are human and you're beautiful just as you are. If you are feeling a bit self conscious one day, just tell yourself that I (Ciara) wants you to hold your head high darling, strut yourself (FOR YOU!) and remember your are human and that alone is a beautiful thing.
💕
You are so used to your features/makeup, that you dont know how beautiful you look to a stranger.
💕
I hope one day your human body is not a jail cell. Instead its a sunny garden with flowers thriving because of self love.

I love it when I get to explore new complexion bases. Tinted ones are my JAM! There are two fairly newcomers and this is my first impression slash mini review of them.
.
1️⃣ @chanel.beauty Sheer Healthy Glow Tinted Moisturizer (Medium)* - this one offers such a beautiful finish on my skin. It gives a luminous glow with a dewy finish. It makes the skin looks effortless with an editorial touch. Super loveee ♥️ Chanel does make great complexion products, IMO. However, the shade is too dark for me despite the efforts. I think Medium Light would suit my skin better. After trying it a few times, I’d say this will probably suit normal to drier skin types better. I find it slides around my nose and chin area after a few hours. That being said, I want to play around with it more, provided I have the right shade cos I looked like an oompa-loompa and it deters me from experimenting with it 😅 But, that finish is gorgeous, no doubt!
.
2️⃣ @shiseido Synchro Skin Tinted Gel Cream (3 Medium)* - I’ve mentioned about it in a previous post. It’s also a bit dark for my skin but still manageable with a brightening base underneath (still prefer the suitable shade though). This one gives a more natural, skin-like finish. It suits my combination skin better too. If I were to just go out for a few hours, I don’t find the need to set it with a loose powder (with Chanel, I have to). Oil will seep through but a quick blot fixes it without moving the product. It does give an impression of healthier, my-skin-but-better-look. This one got my seal of approval!
.
Keep in mind that these are sheer and aren’t meant to give coverage like a foundation does; light coverage at best. They even out my skin and perfect for daily makeup, despite the difference in finish and longevity. If you’re a fan of tinted bases like I do, give these ones a try at the stores!

even when i was down i could turn to makeup to instantly put a smile on face. makeup has taught me to be more confident in myself. if i can step out of the house in a full face of beat, subject myself to judgment from the eyes of the public and still walk around with a huge smile on my face why shouldn’t i be able to love myself without makeup? it’s crazy what such a small thing can do for me. now i know i don’t need to wear makeup but it’s fun! i love being able to craft such beautiful looks on my face then later on just wipe it off and start over the next day with a new creation. makeup is my passion. it’s what drives me to become a better person and i know that sounds silly but being able to find something i love and have a passion for makes me wants to be happy and helps me strive to be the best version of me i can be. it gives me something to look forward to and be happy about. so here’s to a great year of feeling happy and beautiful and to this year to continue the trend!! keep smiling on people 🖤 xoxo gayrrasso

INCLUSION starts by brands working with all ethnicities not just for advertising purposes&HAVING OUT INPUT!

As social media Beauty influencer I am always pleased when brands approach me to try out their makeup range. FOR the weekend I used the following to give a look that works for everyone. It's always hard to find colour matches for my dark skin. Without going lighter than my skin colour. I like have a blend that works with my skin tones and my dark skin should be seen more becuase make brands need to see beauty is also in different shades of skin colour. The more we see dark skin colours the more makeup brands can show people like me on their products in the media beucase it is our right to exist and ofcourse we are paying customers too.

The Glamorous Gleam is 9 years old today. I can’t believe that I’ve been doing this for 9 years, but what amazes me more is how much I’ve grown. This is me in September 2009 at my 27th Birthday Party. With my long weave and too short dress. I was just learning how to really do makeup and had lots of practice since I was in the club pretty often. Just from analyzing this photo I can tell you I’ve since learned that there’s other places you can go to have fun besides the club. In fact you’ll barely ever catch me in one. I’ve learned that I don’t need to wear weave and makeup to feel beautiful, and that I don’t need to show my ass to look good. That’s just a few things. But the point is, writing this blog, networking and meeting new people, going new places, working with brands and general exposure to a broader world has really helped me to discover my true self and blossom into the woman I am today. So happy 9th Blogiversary to The Glamorous Gleam. A big shout out to those of you who’ve been there from day 1, and to everyone that’s been down for me since.

[swipe] Just a reminder: This, is also me. - No makeup, no lip plumpers (just gloss) no brows, no lashes, no contour, and messy unwashed hair.

[swipe] Just a reminder: This, is also me. - No makeup, no lip plumpers (just gloss) no brows, no lashes, no contour, and messy unwashed hair. I wake up like this, in all my imperfect glory (minus the gloss of course) And I'm totally ok with that. I feel good about *me* with, or without makeup. But I feel because so many girls feel negative about themselves when scrolling through IG, that I too, need to put this out there. I'm not ALWAYS dolled up. I don't always have perfect skin. In fact, most of the time when I'm home, this is what I look like. Hair up, or messy and down, and very little to no makeup (Plus or minus a few breakouts) - I don't want anyone to feel like I'm pushing the message that makeup is the only way to be beautiful, just because I post it a lot. Because it isn't. So I'm posting this as sort of a balance. A reminder to love yourself no matter what. On good skin days, and bad. Good hair days, and bad. EVERY 👏 single 👏 day 👏 - Stop assuming everyone else is automatically & effortlessly prettier than you ◾Get out of the habit of comparing your beautiful self to others. ◾Get out of the habit of comparing your every day life to someone else's stylized social media posts◾And get out of the habit of allowing toxic opinions to make you feel anything less than beautiful. You are amazing just the way you are. Makeup is for fun. Let's keep it that way. xo

I've always wanted to go there" He grinned and you smiled knowing that you made him happy.
"No need to thank me Steve it's the least I could do, besides it's your birthday!" You nudged him playfully and he chuckled.
You drove back to the Avengers Tower.
You got a text from Tony that they are ready and you smiled at the text.
"What are you smiling at?" Steve said curiously and you shook your head.
"Nothing, let's go and change to something else to meet the rest"
You changed into a blue black dress that reached half your thighs and fitted your curves perfectly.
You re-applied your makeup to match the dress and did your hair.
Finally you put on your high heels and took your phone to text Natasha that you guys are on your way.
You knocked on Steve's door and heard and faint 'come in'.
You opened the door to find Steve standing in front of the mirror wearing a black dress shirt with black pants.
You couldn't help but stare at his body from head to toe.
"Is it bad?" Steve said brining you back to reality.
"What?No you look very handsome" You smiled widely at him.
"You look beautiful" He grinned and you felt heat creeping onto your cheeks.
"Thank you" "Let's go" You said grabbing his hands and going downstairs to the party hall.
"Aren't we supposed to meet the rest for dinner?" Steve said confused.
"Um yes but I need something from here" You lied and walked through the dark hall.
"How are you gonna see with the lights off?JAR-"
"No!I don't need lights I can see perfectly.Don't worry" You reassured him.
You suddenly stopped and he did as well, your hand is still in his.
"Why did we stop?" He asked.
"SURPRISE!" Suddenly everyone came out from behind the couches and tables, the lights turned on.
You looked at Steve to see his surprised face and the biggest smile was plastered on his face.
"Bella?!" He said in disbelief.
"Surprise!" You said.
"Thank you so much guys this is amazing" He said to everyone and people started to come up to him to say Happy Birthday in person.
You approached Tony and high fived him and he winked at you.
"We did it"
"Yes!"

Stopped by @sephora for a re-stock, and notice two girls in my peripheral vision to my right. I hear one say, “oh I think that’s Sophia, I follow her on IG” The other proceeds to say, “man, I thought she’d be taller, and omg her shoes are so dirty” they both start cracking up. After they stopped laughing, one of them said, “And omg her grey hair! It’s like too much! Like cool for being confident, but it makes her look haggered.”
.
.
Part of me was be boiling mad, and the other part of me wanted to bawl my eyes out. Not only was I being judged, but I was actually HEARING myself being judged. Now I’m super strong, I don’t need anybody to tell me that what those girls said isn’t true, or for anyone to bad mouth those girls. They’re like many young girls, and have no idea the power of sisterhood.
.
.
Even as I sit and try desperately to write about this experience as eloquently as I can; I’m ultimately left fighting back tears. Not because I’m embarrassed or because they hurt me. But because “shaming” is still so alive and well.
.
.
I cannot, and will NEVER apologize for not being people’s perceived ideation of perfect. I’m not perfect, and that shit is boring anyway. This post is for all of my beautiful lady friends. I love you guys so much, just the way you are. I don’t care if you’re 16 with a head full of grey hair, suffering with cystic acne, a size 0 or a size 25. I don’t care if you straighten your hair, wear pounds of makeup, or eat fried chicken.
.
.
Today, for me is about nothing but gratitude. What ultimately sucks, is that the pendulum swings. For as much as those girls hurt my feelings, I also think about what a positive impact that could’ve been had they been nice, or even just said nothing. I hope they’re reading this, and that this be a friendly reminder.
.
.
The only things stronger than true magic, is sisterhood. Begging al of you to love on each other today. We are all just doing the best that we can, and I promise that’s always enough. And if it isn’t? Then, time to move on. .
.
love, Soph

I’m almost resigned to the fact that my holiday isn’t going to happen ☹️. I haven’t done any shoots for over a week now, so I’m having to raid the archive and use images I was trying to save for a rainy day. So I’ve found these from the boutique hotel shoot we did a couple of weeks ago ☺️. Seeing this picture also reminds me that I don’t actually I have my best makeup, brushes or even a hairbrush here, they’re in my luggage somewhere in Schiphol airport 😆. If I have to shoot this week, then I’m thinking a ‘Stig of the Dump’ shoot or even be rocking a ‘Wurzel Gummage’ look - again you need to be of a certain demographic to get those references ☺️. If you’re not from the UK, google them, you’ll soon get the idea 😆. Look at me trying to put a brave face on it, when actually I’m really miserable 😩. It’s a long time till my next break in Florence and to rub salt into the wounds, my daughter is going away for some sun next week - thats just not fair ☹️. I wonder if I theres such a thing these days as ‘holiday bombing’ 😜. Sorry about not having any beautiful beach shots to share with you. I hope these will satisfy your daily FFF habit. Right, where’s my phone, gonna ring the baggage handling company one more time. ❤️&💋FFF

Hey lovelies!! Happy #thursdaytipsandclicks ! I’m super excited to have a few fun tips by the very talented @ohawthornemakeup 💋
A few tips on planning hair and makeup for the wedding day to help ease the process;


A. 1. Start early! Beauty vendors can start booking up a year or more in advance. If there is a Makeup Artist you love, contact them as soon as possible. 2. If you’re just starting your search, look at portfolios with your personal style in mind. Do you wear a lot of makeup everyday? Or are you more natural? Every artist is going to have thier own unique style, so look for someone who’s esthetic speaks to you. 3. Don’t be afraid to communicate with your artist about what you want. The more information we have, the better. I like to have my Brides’ send me photos of makeup and hair looks that they love, photos of thier dress, florals...anything that will give me a feel for thier style. Hair and makeup needs to work with your dress, the setting, and the time of year. There are a lot of factors to consider, so your artist should be asking these types of questions.
💄
Q. A few tips for photographers on bridal prep shots, when, where and why these should or shouldn’t happen;

A. I love Bridal prep shots, and love being part of them. But they can be delicate dance between the photographer and the artist to get it just right. I always recommend taking them when the bride is just finishing up hair and makeup. She will feel more confident, and the end result will be more “finished”. We can always “fake” putting on some lipstick or powder once everything is on. Getting the mist from setting spray can look really cool too! I always try to work with the photographer to make sure they are getting what they need. One thing I always appreciate from great photographers (like Deyla), is the ability to work with me while I’m doing my job. We’re all on tight schedules, and when a photographer and a makeup artist work well together, we can keep things moving AND get all the beautiful shots that ev

The smell is.....incredible. It smells like what I would imagine a unicorn who lives in the Bahamas smells like ✨🦄
👠 @maybelline master conceal is FULL COVERAGE. It is thick. You need very little product which is great because it lasts forever! I will only blend this with a beauty sponge. 👄 @essence_cosmetics I am just going to out it out there. .....I am not about that highlight.... 😱 BUT this color is beautiful. I will put very little mixed in with my blush. I use it for the inner corners of my eye and as a perfect glow to my eyelids on days when I want a simple fresh look! 👅 lastly my @firstaidbeauty eye duty triple remedy. I like to put this under my concealer or mixed in. I do not always use the metal applicator because I am typically in a rush and don't have time to let that cool trip run under my eyes to do its purpose. •

Necessary bookings:

1. Photography / Videography: decide on a photographer (studio / freelance) and make sure you have a small meeting before making your final decision. Side note: photography is probably the thing you need to splurge on the most as this is a once in a lifetime event.

2. Event planner: the most important part of your whole wedding is the set up. Make sure you make research and ask around before settling with a planner, also make sure you set an appointment to check out his work / price range/ and if he can work with a budget.

3. Bridal bouquet: I think this depends on personal preference but do research flowers available during your wedding as seasons change and so do flowers which means that you might not find what you want in the market. There are many different florists who do bridal bouquets (prices range between 900 - 1500 dirham). 4. Makeup / hair: I recommend going in for a trial for both, choose a makeup artist who specializes in brides and do sit with her and tell her about the look you are going for. Also, if there is something you don't like, don't be shy to speak up at the end of the day it is your wedding and you want to be perfect. Hair styling is very important (also depends on the dress), I recommend doing a trial as well.

5. DJ

That's it, I hope these posts would help someone.
Stay beautiful 💗

All my life I have been uncomfortable in my body. I have Yoyod up and down in weight pretty much ever since I can remember. Back in 2014 I allowed myself to touch that three digit number on the scale that was incredibly unhealthy for my body.
But then I found yoga and lost nearly 100 lbs in the course of a year.
I was in the best shape of my life but then I got injured on my bike....which allowed my yoyo string to start it's little game once again.
I know I appear to be in moderate to okay shape at the moment but I still battle the same damn thing.
Being uncomfortable with my body.
I don't know how many times I have torn through my closet with my poor fiance sitting on the bed telling me I look beautiful in each outfit I put on....it never matter if the clothes looked good or not what matter is how I felt.
I felt and still most times do see the bad features of my body. And that is exactly why I have started this journey with beautiful people from opposite sides of the country even world wide can hear my story little bits at a time....with the hope that everyone out there with body issues can feel a little less alone.... We all have battles and we all know how to cover them with the right shade of makeup....
But what we really need is supoort.
Support on our journey to a better life.
A better mind space.
A better Me. A better you.

Don't allow yourself to shame your body.
Your body is your temple.
It's your one place to live.
So join me....follow this adventure to a new healthy mindset.
Click my bio. Send me a message. Leave me a comment.
Id love to help you too! 💗

I was reminded this afternoon of the power our words can hold. Of the hurt they can cause. And also of the encouragement they can give. I happened to be at a store and overheard a discussion between a grandmother and her teenage granddaughter. Within a few short moments I heard this young girl get told that ‘boys only date girls that look feminine’, ‘if you won’t dress pretty or wear makeup, will you at least wear shoes that look like a girls’-to which the girl replied, ‘I like my Converse’(and was told, ‘well do Converse come in pink?’). The grandmother then told this sweet girl that the only way she was ever going to be able to have kids someday was to get married and to do that, boys needed to like her. I wanted to cheer when I heard this brave spirit reply, ‘no I don’t, all I need is a good doctor!’ At this point I was angry, heartbroken, and proud all at the same time. I had to bite my tongue the entire interaction because so much of me wanted to jump in and defend this girl, and yet I didn’t want to further embarrass or shame her either. So I did what I do best, I wrote. I tore out a page from a notebook in my purse and jotted a quick note of encouragement. ‘Boys (and girls) date whomever the hell they want, regardless of what they wear! Rock your Converse with confidence! You are amazing and beautiful just the way you are!! 💗’ And then I waited until I could discreetly slip it to her. She whispered ‘thank you’, put it in her pocket without reading it and asked if I’d heard what was said. I smiled and nodded. She said ‘thank you’ again and rejoined her place in line. I’ll probably never see this girl again. I don’t know her story, and she doesn’t know mine. My heart hurts that she heard the messages she did today, and my heart hurts that her grandmother grew up in a world that led her to believe those messages to be truth. My hope is that a few words of encouragement from a stranger can help counteract some of what she heard. And my hope is that I am part of a generation that is saying ‘no more’ to believing the lies I heard spoken today.

You see, up until last year I sometimes posted on social media for validation. Validation of being enough.
..
I wanted to share the latest ideas I had come up with cause I would receive messages of how I’d inspired someone to follow their passion.
..
I wanted to share family vacations or the rare moments I did something fun with my kids. To share posts that would make my life look fun and interesting when in reality work consumed me. I would post selfies when I knew my makeup or hair looked good, because compliments from other people gave me this false sense of validation.
..
For some reason having someone else say I’m pretty or how I have a beautiful family / children made me feel better on the days when the self-doubt crept in and I felt insignificant or inadequate.
..
I’ve had conversations lately as to why I’m not posting more or sharing what’s going on in my life. The truth is, I don’t want to share the highlight reel. My life is far from perfect; but it’s mine. I feel as though people’s feeds are often a comparison trap. I see new moms being down on themselves for not being put together. Or a new entrepreneur feeling as though they’ll never be able to catch up to or be the designers they see online.
..
Remember to love and accept yourself. Even your flaws. Made a mistake? Dust your knees and get back up! You don’t need external validation that you’re beautiful, skinny, successful, popular, or loved. YOU need to believe it about yourself. Stop feeling insecure about who you are. The love and acceptance we’re looking for isn’t out there. Its actually inside of us.
..
You are enough. You are more than enough.

(Ad: unpaid links & promo tags) ✨ When I was a child the kids at school told me that I was too thin. A boy I liked told me that it’s embarrassing to be seen with me because of my pale skin. When I was a teenager, people told me that I don’t look appropriate because of my everyday Gothic-look. In my early 20s, modeling agencies told me that I was too fat. Photographers told me that I’m not ‚commercial‘ enough. When I had just dyed my hair black a photographer with whom I had never worked with came to me and complained with the question when I will be blonde again. While working as a Yoga teacher fellow colleagues told me that I wear too much makeup and don’t look ‚natural’ enough.
It’s incredible how many people think that they need to comment on how someone else looks like.
_
These were just some tiny few examples of all the things that I’ve heard throughout my life, but I never stopped being myself, which cost me a lot of strength and which I’m proud of.
There was a time when I was so sick and tired of people telling me what I should do look like or how I should behave to be ‚appropriate‘. Now I can deal with it, because I finally start to understand what it feels like to truly be ‚myself‘.

So my message today is: don’t listen to other people who want to put you down in order to feel better themselves. Be yourself, because you are beautiful just the way you are! Shave your head, get your whole body tattooed, do whatever you like to do. It’s your life and your body - not theirs.
Besides that, have a wonderful Sunday! :) ☀️

Sharing with you my experience on these gorgeous beauties by Gosh

Gosh FAKE IT Lash Primer
Gosh Blown Away Mascara
Gosh Metal Eye

The Gosh Lash Primer is a wonderful product and the application just takes few seconds. It is an amazing lash primer that separates and lifts the lashes so that they look longer and more fuller.

Try using a mascara without the primer and try using it with the primer. There would be a huge difference.

This one makes the mascara stay longer and gets more life and drama to the lashes. The shade of the primer is grey and it is more like a base for enhancing the look of the mascara on your lashes.

Over this, I applied the Gosh Blown Away Mascara which definitely gave an extreme volume. It totally defined my eye makeup and made even a natural eye shadow stand out. The finished look of the primer and mascara was amazing and long lasting. You don’t need to go for a heavy makeup after applying this combo as this one makes your features totally stand out.
Last but not the least I used the Gosh Metal Eye Pencil.
SO basically this soft and creamy textured pencil to be used over the lid and you can smudge and blend and create several looks with this. But after using the primer and mascara, I dint feel the need to do anything more so I just used it on my water line as a kajal and it totally complemented the entire makeup. I have tried to use this individually as well and it lasts for an entire day and gives a beautiful metallic effect.

I never imagined myself walking into a gala with hairy underarms, & legs, bushy eyebrows, minimal makeup & an Afro. If you would’ve told me my senior year, when I wore this dress for prom, that I would look like this at 23, I would’ve laughed because this is the exact opposite of what I thought beauty was.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“you should perm (straighten) your hair again” “I don’t think black girls are pretty, but you are of course” “You will be so beautiful growing up, I can see it, but those eyebrows” “Can you please shave your body hair?” “Your head & forehead are too big for you to look good with short hair” “I don’t date black women/men”. Lastly, “if people/friends/family don’t understand, just teach them”. (Some phrases I’ve heard)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Too often I’ve conformed to the patriarchal Eurocentric beauty standards. Over the past few years I realized the amount of emotional labor that I went through to teach others. “If people/friends/family don’t understand, teach them”, is often a common statement said to me. Too often, people become uncomfortable with your self-growth, & especially when you are different from them. Too often these very same people expect education, and then as the ‘dust settles’ & they raise their consciousness, they want to pat you on the back for being so “strong”. The constant expectation to live through ignorance, intolerance, etc., to then turn around and educate these same people is an expectation that should no longer exist. I am not your educator for race, gender, class, etc. I am not your token.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Finding people who care about what effects you on a personal but also in a societal aspect has been an amazing experience over the past few years. I couldn’t be more thankful for amazing friends & allies. & especially the POC Shambhala meditation group.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I am a Black-Jamaican-American-Floridian-Mainer-Queer-Woman, and a daughter of a white mother. I am not limited to each of these identities. They all intersect into so much more of who I am. I no longer need to strive for other people’s ideals of who I should be. I strive to be authentic. To be Gabrielle Deloris. And only I can define that.

-
What upsets 😑 me the most in pakistan is that every single time I have a client who is naturally tanned, requests me to make them look two to three skin tones lighter than their real one.😒
-
On the other hand, I try my best to make everyone feel comfortable and beautiful the way they are so that they can embrace their actual skin.😇
-
My model had a beautiful, naturally tanned skin tone and I tried to keep it the same so that she can feel beautiful in her own skin.😗😗
-
I'm really happy that her makeup turned out this stunning, it actually looks more enhanced than the makeup I have done in the past on lighter skins 😍
-
I believe everyone is beautiful, with or without makeup. You don't need skin whitening creams and treatments, all you need is a badass personality 😙 😉

Today is international women’s day as I’m sure you know by now. And somehow I ended up on YouTube watching makeup tutorials which lead to, how to look beautiful without makeup, to women experimenting with NOT wearing makeup, to men’s reactions of seeing their girlfriends without makeup for the first time. The only people who even knew that the women weren’t wearing makeup was them. I don’t know if it’s funny, sad or just perfect that we are all so wrapped up in our own imperfections that we can’t see that other people don’t even notice them.
...
So in honor of International Women’s Day and flipping off the beauty industrial complex that constantly tells us ladies that we need them to turn heads, feel at home in our skin, etc, etc ad infinity - here is my fresh face. A face you have all seen before. A face you will see again. A face that gets lots of fresh air. A face unfettered by makeup. A face that is good enough the way God made it. A face I love, honor, occasionally wash and always see as beautiful because it’s mine. ...
🤟 Now let your souls shine and your face be seen! ...

I am going to be super candid right now.... This day was magical. This day was so beautiful. The most important part of this day is the fact that I married my best friend and the best man in the world! Period.
I know a lot of brides say they don’t really remember the day or there were things they disliked, etc. But I legitimately do not have much memory of this day. Not because it was a whirlwind, but because I was 2 nights no sleep. And when I say no sleep, I mean NO SLEEP. I was 30% functioning... autopilot. I have been dealing with sudden insomnia a couple months prior and it was my worst nightmare to not have slept before my big day. I looked exhausted. No makeup could fix that. My hair was not what I wanted, but I was too exhausted to care or ask to tweak it or change it. My hair and makeup ladies were absolutely incredible!! This is nothing against anyone. I was running on fumes. I didn’t feel like a beautiful bride. I couldn’t enjoy the day like someone who slept could. And I have been hiding from these photos because somehow I felt guilty. I don’t know if anyone else suffers from insomnia, but the feeling of no sleep (especially two nights in a row, right before something as wonderful as your wedding day) is a horrible feeling that I wouldn’t wish on anyone! Anyone who knows me, knows that I am vibrant, happy & energetic. I wasn’t able to be myself on this day and I need to get over it.
It was the most magical day of my life - even if I was far from 100% present & didn’t feel remotely close to beautiful bride.

So there. I said it. I’m over it. And I can finally look back on this day and stop judging myself so hard. 🤷🏼‍♀️ #monthoflove #valentinesday #tb #wedding #bridal #flowers #bride

And it’s still something that’s hard to do.. for instance, whenever my makeup doesn’t turn out right, or whenever I can’t seem to find a nice outfit, or whenever I go out to events and see how many other prettier girls there are, I get sooo upset and then I start to question why I have so many imperfections and ugly traits and get angry at God for not making me “pretty.” I compare myself way too much with others and I look down on myself way too often. But.. EVERY time I start to question my worth and my qualities, in the most amazing and craziest of ways, God literally shakes all that nonsense out of me. He then reminds me in such a stronger and even louder voice that I am absolutely beautiful. He reminds me and asks me why I’m so focused on all of that when nothing else even matters because HIS love and the way HE looks at me is more than enough and more than all I need. The way others view me isn’t what I’m taking with me when I meet the Lord. So why should I keep letting those negative thoughts consume me? When I could be using those seconds, minutes, and hours praising Him instead. No other love is going to set me free or make me feel beautiful inside and out except for His, and I need to keep reminding myself of that. I don’t give myself enough credit for having a heart that’s made to love on others, for always constantly wanting to spread joy around me, and for always being that positive light in people’s lives— and I believe that those are gifts from God.

I know that I will have to battle with the enemy even harder as I keep growing with the Lord but man, I am ready. Because through Him, I can do anything and everything. I need to listen to Him more. I need to believe in myself more. I need to realize that God didn’t “mess up” when He created me. And I need to remind myself that His love is all I need and that it’s more than enough. ..Today is a very very happy Sunday. ☺️🙏🏻

I think this is a big topic/controversial thing on Instagram & Facebook so I thought id share how I edit my photos for Instagram! We all do it so I don't feel its anything to hide behind or be shameful of!The reason I edit is bc my images represent my brand, ME/Makeup with EmilyB., so I need my images to be poppin- so to speak 😎 & unfortunately the camera tends to wash everything out so I've gotta bring it back to life!! As you can see my makeup is not edited in any way nor is my face or features. I use the Facetune app & Instagram to edit my images. On Facetune I LIGHTLY smooth down my nose, the center of my forehead and around my cheeks to hide my pores. I use the tones tool to achieve the @jamescharles highlighting trick to help bring my highlight back to life bc the camera does wash it out-- he has a video on youtube you can watch to help you-- & I add detail to my eyes to help draw attention to them! On Instagram I mess around with all the tools to help with lighting, color and quality. Lighting is a HUGE factor when showcasing makeup. I try to stand in front of a window or my front door to get the best lighting, or in front of my ring light. I use Snapchat to take my pictures and then edit using FaceTune & Instagram. Also, angles and positioning are everything. I always stick my chin out to hide the natural double chin I was so fortunately blessed with and I blow out with my mouth to help with plumping my lips. & that's all. Obviously I'm not the queen of selfies and am in no way a professional but bc I do edit my images and it is such a huge topic I wanted to share my tricks.
Now while on the topic of editing... Some of you baby's take it wayyy too far. If you're drastically editing the shape of your face, your nose, the size of your lips and eyes, using makeup apps to give yourself lashes and lipstick and smoothing out your skin so much that you don't even look real, you're doing too much! And trust me when I say, it is noticeable! I get we all want to look bomb.com in our selfies but you are beautiful just the way you are and all that editing isn't necessary! Jus sayin!! 😘 #makeupwithemilyb

1. Only follow people you like: This one seems obvious, but not all of us make sure to follow accounts that inspire us in some way. An easy way to figure this out? Pay attention to how the photos/videos that show up on your feed make you feel and if there are accounts that don’t make you feel good about yourself or in general, then by all means please stop following them!!! 🙅🏻‍♀️

2. Understand that IG is a visual platform: This means that what you mostly see on IG are beautiful, well styled photos. Is this reality? NO! It’s literally my job to create content for brands, followed by doing my hair & makeup and take pretty photos, but that is not my reality every second of the day guys!
Make an effort not to compare your REAL life with someone’s IG feed, because you will always end up feeling like crap.

3. You don’t need to post about everything! Keep some things to yourself. Stop living by “if it’s not on IG, it didn’t happen”.
I have my phone/camera on me all the time because I love keeping a photo/video journal of my most significant moments, but that doesn’t mean I need to share them. Some things are just mine to treasure with the people I love the most 💗

4. Read captions: Congrats if you made it here! It means you do read captions 🏆
What most people write on IG gives the photo some context, so it’s important for you to read and interact with the people you support in here. That’s what it’s always been about; making meaningful connections and feel inspired by the accounts you follow 🙏🏻

5. Spend less time on it: I’ve talked about this before, but I’ll never get tired of saying it: monitor the time you spend on SM! It’s such a waste of time if you don’t do it right!!
Open your eyes, there’s a beautiful world in front of you, books to read & people to talk to. You just need to look up and stop looking at your phone every single moment! 👀

Hope this helps you to be more present and be more mindful about how you interact with any social network. Love you guys!
Have a great weekend 🖤

CLEARLY I had issues with my skin on the left (that wasn’t even as bad as it was), and though I don’t have many on the right, I still have some things to work on.
Keeping up with skincare is like keeping up with a diet. You can’t take breaks and not keep up with it if you expect to see results. You need to be consistent.
The girl on the left rarely left the house without makeup - & that makeup didn’t look good because I was covering, not enhancing. The girl on the left had such a low self esteem. The girl on the left did everything she could to pile and pile on foundation and concealer.
Girl... or boy... let me just give you one piece of advice. Don’t go to sleep with makeup on, don’t skip the morning because you’re in a rush; in fact, do yourself a favor and wake up on that first snooze so you have time to get it done, definitely don’t skip the night time, and most of all - Find something that works for you and STICK TO IT. You are beautiful. I know all you need is a little more confidence in your skin in order to show that beauty through. 💋💕 #marykay #mymklife #itworks #paystobeconsistent #consistencyiskey #skin #skincare

When my amazingly talented and sweet friend, who is a makeup artist, asked me to be her model a few weeks back for a bridal photo shoot I said of course I would love to do it. We excitedly waited to get the photos back from the photographer. When she got them, she sent me this and I immediately started picking it apart. One eyebrow is higher than the other, one eye looks bigger than the other, one eye is closer to the camera than the other, why did I turn at that angle to the camera, why did I smirk like that, my giant forehead, white as a ghost as usual...on and on...instead of telling my friend what an amazing job she did and how beautiful my make up looks- I cracked jokes about how “awful I look” 🤦🏼‍♀️epic fail! She is amazing! And her work is incredible! And the first thing I should’ve said to her was thank you for making me look beautiful!(I highly highly recommend her btw! @makeup.by.christiev )The topic of conversation at the salon the last few days has been about lip injections, filler, Botox, and something new called threading. Beautiful women who have picked apart their faces trying to fix every flaw they see.
The point to this novel is this question; why as women do we feel the need to be perfection all the time? It’s exhausting! And it’s not just with the way we look, it’s in every part of our lives! Pressure to be the perfect wife, the perfect mother, have the perfect house, be the perfect friend, the perfect daughter… Who in the hell has time to be perfect at all these things??? Because I sure as hell don’t! Maybe if I didn’t have a full-time job? But honestly, how many men do you see walking around attempting to be perfection all the time, in every area of their life? 😏🤔 Stressed out of their mind because they haven’t gotten filler or Botox😱, or put together the perfect birthday party for the 6 yr old, or made sure they had dinners planned for the whole week because of work schedules, or obsesses over what the house looks like, or freaking perfect Easter baskets?🤯 I don’t know any! It’s kind of bullshit if you ask me. Why are women hard wired this way? Did society do it to us? Or did we do it to ourselves? Cont. 👇🏻

Swipe for the most shocking image of the year - actual real, pale skin without makeup or a filter on.

Yesterday I posted polls and Q&As asking people to talk about why they wear fake tan. So many women replied saying that without it they feel ‘ugly’, ‘revolting’, that people say they are ‘ill-looking’. That they feel like makeup looks better on tan/darker skin tones and it’s harder to make makeup look good on pale skin, and to find products that work for that classic Irish ‘pink’ shade of pale, etc. ⠀
This honestly made me feel really sad all day. I genuinely wish I could convince each one of you that you are gorgeous as you are and you shouldn’t need to change your skin tone to feel confident. I’m all for a ‘healthy glow’ and there’s nothing wrong with changing up your look once in a while but so many of you seem to feel like you need to be darker to feel good about yourself at all and I wish this wasn’t the case. I completely understand - I am among the palest they come and all my life I’ve had people tell me I’d ‘look better with a tan’ and question why I don’t just lay out in the sun without factor on to ‘catch a healthy bit of colour’. My skin literally just burns and then goes back to white so there’s no point in trying anyway but regardless, it does create a complex where you wonder ‘am I ugly as I am if people keep telling me this?’ And when you can’t find makeup products that suit your skin tone you begin to feel like there’s something wrong with you, and when every makeup tutorial you watch is for golden tanned skin it all just eats away at your self-esteem. I get it. ⠀⠀
I’d love to chat more about this but Insta captions won’t let me here - so let’s bring this down to the comments. Have you ever felt like you need to change your skin tone to feel confident or fit in? I have about a thousand stories from my own experience so I’m sure you all do too...
Anyway. I did a little step-by-step on insta story on how I do an everyday natural glowy skin look on my pale skin. It’s saved to my ‘How-To’s’ highlights - let me know if you want more like this.
And don’t forget: you were born beautiful and fuck anyone who says or makes you feel otherwise xx

I have thousands of beautiful photos that, sadly, only I have ever seen. Why? .
.
Fear of judgement is a strange and powerful thing. Growing up I would be afraid to talk to others because I was afraid I would look stupid. I wouldn’t eat in front of people because I was scared they would judge my body. I would cancel plans with friends and hide because of acne.
.
The heartbreak isn’t in my personal struggle. It is that every. single. human being, especially women are so scared of not living up to societies perfect image that they end up not living at all. 💔
.
We need to EMPOWER each other and stop doing the things we don’t want or need to do. Do you wish you didn’t have to shave your legs or wear makeup all the time? Well the truth is that you don’t. .

Go against the current, stop feeding into your social reputation, it’s not you. Be your own person, you won’t be able to find yourself if your always striving to be someone else. Our lives are so short and precious, let us let go of fear together. .
.
Let the world see you, because you are an incredible gift!! 💝
