#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.

#KahluaParkerBeauty: Bake This Face

Trends! Trends! And more trends! Lets be very clear. I’m a trend setter. However I do like to occasionally try a new beauty trend. Just like fashion, one day your’re hot on the runway and next your being knocked off by every major retail.


“Making Baking” or ‘baking that face’ is a trend that was came out of the drag queen makeup era. Baking the face is when you apply concealer and a lot of loose powder to set for up to 10 minutes. During baking continue to blend out the edges of the concealer until the concealer molds into the skin, giving you a natural flawless makeup finish. In television and film I refer to baking as setting special effects makeup, set bruises and tattoos.
Can also be referred to as highlight and contouring.

Follow me on Instagram as I bake this face into a beautifully flawed artpiece.

#SavedSexySanctified: Mercy Said No


Gods mercy said no I’m not going to let you slip away.
Sin will never take control.
Darkness tried to steal my heart away.
But thank you Jesus…God’s Mercy said no.

Gospel Singer, #CeCeWinans

The lyrics to this song inspired me to continue to look forward to my blessing. Life trials and tribulations has prepared me for my season. When I look back over all the things I’ve been delivered from; all the things and people I let go, I watched my blessings increase further confirming my faith.
