#KahluaParkerBeauty: Beauty Is Skin Deep Makeup Look

You probably can’t tell from my pictures the texture of my skin is rough. Up close my friends could tell how bad my skin looked. My skin has been peeling and discolored. One night cream was too strong for my skin resulting in the top layer of my skin burning. My under eye area resembled a healing black eye.

skindeep_natural3Beauty is suffering and sacrifice. When I took on this new exploration into the beauty blogging world, I had no idea the extreme sacrifices I was taking on my skin. I refused to let this breakout get me down. I just tweaked my beauty routine a little bit.

Once the oil has almost absorbed into the skin, I apply a quarter size of Lancome Bienfait Teinte Beauty Balm #7 Suede with my Beauty Blender Pro. Blend out. Set with Milani All Over Bronzer #01 Bronze Glow. Using Smashbox Fusion Soft Light in Baked Starburst to highlight my cupids bow and bridge of nose. Enhanced my brows with Anastasia Beverly Hills Dip Brow in Dark Brown. In this look I choose to focus more my eyes to deflect from my skin issues. Urban Decay Naked Palette is one of my go-to for a quick natural smokey eye. From this palette, I used Half-Baked on the brow, Side Car in the inner corner, Naked as a trationsitonal color and Toasted on the lid. Finishing the eye with Benefit Roller Lash Mascara in black to create that baby doll wide eye look without wearing false eyelashes. Complete the look with a brown colored matte lip, Smashbox Always On Liquid Lipstick in True Grit.skindeep_natural1

Head over to Youtube to watch I how I bring my skin back to life.

#WritersBlockWednesdays: Is Beauty Only Skin Deep

skindeep_natural4Whew! this California weather change has taken a beating up on my skin. It has been extremely hot during the day and cold at night. No complaints here just stating the facts. Born and raised in Cali….the weather here year round is great….just not right as were transitioning into fall lol. Between my allergy flare ups and testing out these beauty products; now it not the time to be battling changing weather climate shenanigans. You don’t know how to dress in the morning let alone which face to put on.

Since I’ve been in-between skin outbreaks, I’ve been upset at the world and didn’t want to see anybody. Too vain to go outside without makeup let alone showcasing skin that was dry, tight, itching, irritated, peeling. But even with a face full of hives, it does gets better. Thank god for dry essential oils. Smashbox Photo Finish Primer Oil gave my skin life with a flawless glow both underneath and on top of my foundation. Determined not to get behind on my to-do-list, I made it work. I always say beauty is suffering and sacrifice. This season I took one for the team yaaasss honey! And the beauty revenge award going to…..The Intoxicating Beauty, Kahlua Parker.

I am my beauty brand; Kahlua Parker also known as Kahlua Parker Beauty. As my brand expands into other areas within the cosmetics industry, I have been a walking billboard. Double checking my makeup look. Triple checking my power moves. The representation of my business brand means everything to my overall success. As shallow and contradictory as it may seem…my looks are everything.skindeep_natural3

People are judging me at every post, tweet, angle, filter and how many times I wore my favorite black dress. I’ve been skin depressed for about month now. I had events to attend, dates to go on and haters to slay on; ain’t nobody got time for jacked up skin. There was no time to be sobbing over how my skin looked. This is my passion. Whether people agree with my vanity or not. It sure as hell not going to stop me from encouraging others to enhance their definition of beauty.

Be your own kind of beautiful. Beauty is only skin deep. There are a lot of attractive people in this world with ugly insides. I’m organic; a genuinely nice person with a good heart. The world teaches you to hate but I still love hard. I love deep. I’m loyal to a fault.

Royalty is in my blood. I’m at a point in my life where inner peace is where I feel most confident despite life’s opposition.

#WritersBlockWednesdays: Are WE Ready For Matrimony

If you been on this #glitzglamgossip journey with me then you know that I’m a hopeless romantic. I love love. I love love songs. No matter how many times I experience heartbreak, I know that true love is still  possible. When I heard ‘Matrimony’ by Wale featuring R&B crooner Usher lol I fell in love all over again. Then when I when to youtube and saw the video my heart melted. I immediately added it to my #SummerLove2015 youtube playlist.wedding_candles

If there’s a question of my heart, you’ve got it
It don’t belong to anyone but you
If there’s a question of my love, you’ve got it
Baby don’t worry, I’ve got plans for you

But I’m promisin’ you better though
And your friends sayin’ let him go
And we ain’t gettin’ any younger
I can give up now but I can promise you forever though

After reading #TheWait by DevonFranklin and Meagan Good, I realized that I was created to love and receive love from the man who God (not Kahlua) has prepared just for me. I learned a lot about myself, the type of the guys I was choosing to date and how reconnect with God for spiritual guidance in times of weakness. I’m still a work in progress. Judge if you will but Im still going to love on me some chocolate lol.

#KahluasKonfessions: Love Detox (UPDATE)

Dear Secret Admirer.

I took a few weeks this spring to evaluate and reassess my journey in both my professional and personal love life. In trying to get this love thing right, dating at times can be mentally exhausting. No more decoding a dudes text messages. No more decoding the hints. Dude, just try saying what you really mean. Tell me how you feel about me. Honestly….I’m mature enough to process the information.

What’s on your mind? Do I make you a better man? Can you see yourself being in a committed relationship with me? Tell me what’s in your heart and I’ll tell you whats in mine. Let our minds compromise together in order for us both to be happy. Let our hearts communicate with each other the joys and sorrows of this amazing journey called life.
