And do not be conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Romans 12:2 #SavedSexySanctified
Are you branded? If so, what does your brand represent? Are you branded by God or by social media? I learned very early in that the beauty industry is not for the weak. It takes more than a pretty face to get that dream job. You actually have to be talented and intelligent. One day you’re in and the next day you’re out. Women of all ethnicities strive to find that perfect shade of foundation or a serum that promises youthful glowing skin. Social media definition of beauty is truly and realistically unattainable. As a Christian woman who is a makeup artist, I have to tread lightly on how I brand myself in this world of perfection seeking junkies. Being “in” the world but not of the world is not easy task but I strive to live my life in such a way that my faith and good deeds show non-believers that there something ‘different’ about Kahlua. Yeah, it’s the “God in me” (Mary Mary)! I don’t glorify the art of perfection. Instead I show women how to enhance the areas they do like by embracing your inner soul beauty. Whatever is in you will radiant on the outside. Redefine what beauty means to you.
For years, I allowed social media and others to validate me. Through *couch therapy and *kneeology I realized that the only validation I need is from GOD. The bible speaks of staying away from corrupt communication. Well my career sort dapples in this swirl of gossip and hearsay. Recently while browsing on my Facebook page, I made a conscious decision to watch what I post, repost, like and sharing. So how do I keep my spiritual morals and still do my job? Expose the devil. Testify. We are overcome by our testimony.
I share with you the highs and lows of my character flaws when I’m going through to encourage you that no one is perfect in this spiritual journey. It is a daily strive of perfection that we will never see because no human being on this earth is perfect. Sit back and enjoy the journey. I speak positivity in my life. I want my selfie to reflect a life of peace and happiness.
I may be flawed but my makeup is perfect – Kahlua Parker
