Happy #Summer16 Beauty Revenge.
As we enter into the #glitzglamgossip sanctuary, I ask that you open your hearts, minds and souls to explore the happiness, peace and serenity that life has to offer. Regardless of our careers, religious beliefs or gender; maintaining focus on your life’s destiny is no easy journey for anyone. I took the last six months to re-invent my beauty brand, Kahlua Parker Beauty. The dream is free. The hustle is hard. The pay is priceless. Turning beauty into a buck is very challenging when you are the face of your brand. At all times, I get discouraged knowing that at any given moment some one is judging, observing, tweeting and commenting on this intoxicating beauty. The constant need to write the correct post, tag your friends and engage with customers while maintaining a perfect flawless face. Shaking my head…In the cosmetics industry there is no second chances to make a first flawless impression.
As a Creative Beauty Director of my own company I struggle with popularity of technology versus real life marketing formulas. I want my brand to be a financially successful company that is authentically sincere to its customers and mission statement; I may be flawed but my makeup is perfect. I don’t care about how many likes or followers I have. I am setting out to impact lives through an inspirational cosmetic line. These past six months I was in makeup heaven but I didn’t know it came at such a costly price that would include diminishing my self-esteem. Playing these mind games is mentally exhausting. At the end of the day it’s all worth it because my strength is fueled by my passion for the arts.
Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes.Instead, it should be that of your inner self,the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God’s sight. – I Peter chapter 3 verse 3 and 4
I take pride in enhancing a woman’s self esteem with proper skin care regimes and correct color matching customized to her personal style. At the end of the day, it’s not about what I or any other makeup artist thinks about your makeup preferences. Beauty is what beauty does. You have to look at yourself in the mirror every morning, everyday and love you despite how others view you. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
