Creativemas: My Christmas Looks For Christmas 2019:

Merry Belated Christmas! We are actually just a few hours from 2020 wow!! What are y’all manifestations for the new decade?

Mine are private well…I want my businesses to be extremely successful, I’ll update in another blog. Well, from the title, yes, I created four Christmas inspired looks and if you follow me or subscribe to me on Instagram and YouTube, then you have seen these eyetorials, except my Christmas Day makeup, I didn’t have the time to film a makeup look.

My first look I done was a soft glam with a pop of red. My contour, highlight, brows, etc is my usual. The foundation I chosen to use was the Juvia’s Place velvet matte foundation and I used the color Aruba. The eyeshadows palettes were Ruby Kisses RKiss line “Topaz Nudes” , which is nice nude and subtle palette perfect for soft glam looks and Nicka K ” Poison Apple” palette a affordable dupe to the Huda Beauty palette. The lip color was an oldie but goodie “RiRi Woo” from Mac.

The second look was a more traditional look, the eyeshadow palettes were Glamlite ” Paint” Palette and RKiss “Topaz Nude” palette and the lip choice was Coloured Raine “Cherry Blossom” and for foundation, I mixed Maybelline Fit me matte and poreless “Golden Caramel” with L’Oréal True Match ” Warm Tan”

The third look, I was naughty and spicy, so I decided to use three Juvia’s Place palettes, ” The Warrior”, “Nomad”, and ” The Tribe” and the Nicka K ” Poison Apple” palette and the lip color was Morphe “Hot Shot” liquid lipstick and the foundation was the same as the traditional Christmas inspired look.

The final look was my Christmas Day look, I used my Mac palette and a Mac lipstick and for foundations were I forgot, I am so sorry no it was Fenty Beauty matte foundation and the L’Oréal true match foundation.

Did everyone get what they wanted? I find as I get older, I just like to relish in the day and let children have the excitement. I did receive gifts, I ask that their limit is $20-$25 as I believe expensive gifts you can buy yourself. I received a new robe, a foot spa, a gift card to Victoria’s Secret, facial products and new lashes.

Giving Gratitude: A smell I Love

I’m currently doing the gratitude challenge on my instagram pages . I’m the writer of everything so I didn’t want my followers to be in the dark about what I’m giving gratitude on.

Some of my gratitudes won’t make it to the blog, because it’s personal and this is my beauty and lifestyle blog only, but if you want to catch up, you can head to Instagram and look up theblushingbeauty_ and read and be gracious and hit the ” follow” button.

I am a fragrance junkie, I have over 150 smells. I love a good ole scent from sweet to spicy. I also like to fragrance combine, taking similar notes and putting two fragrances together to create a rotating scent.

Some of my top scents are:

Aqua do gioa it’s sweet and clean.

Victoria’s Secret’s Velvet Petals, Body by Victoria, Bare Vanilla Frost, Strawberries and Champagne, Angel Diamond, Angel Holiday, Angel Seduction, Midnight Mimosa ( no longer sell), Warm and Cozy

Ariana Grande Cloud which is sweet with a vanilla scent

Bath and Body Works Gingham, vanilla bean Noel, kaleidoscope, warm vanilla sugar,

Let’s just say I have way too many too name

My wish list is

Here’s my favorite scent combinations:

Bath and Bodywork’s gingham 👉🏽 aqua di gioa

Bath and bodywork’s vanilla bean Noel 👉🏽 Vs Bare vanilla frosted

Bbw warm vanilla sugar👉🏽 vanilla fields

Gift ideas: I love Sets because it saves money and I like to give scents according to their personality

Sweet aim for sweet scents like Ariana grande cloud, warm vanilla sugar, vanilla bean Noel

Spicy: bbw autumn nights, kaleidoscope or for men spice bomb

Fun aim for fruity scents like aqua di gioa or gingham

Older: stick to classic scents that aren’t as popular but brings back great memories like Dkny be delicious scents, sand and sable, vanilla fields, Tommy Hilfiger , Chanel no 5, etc

Want to let them try or on a tight budget? Invest in roller balls most range from $20-$25 and if they are like me mini and roller balls are best

The Finale: Hello December

Am I the only one that felt 2019 came and went? We are actually in the very last month before a new decade how crazy!!!

This year has been amazing and an eye opener. I was recently fired from my night job over a lie, but it became a blessing, because I had been talking about becoming an entrepreneur if I hadn’t gotten fired from my second job and meeting some amazing boss women on Instagram, I wouldn’t of never launched my lash line nor The Style Gosssip. I don’t have an official website yet, but I’m taking orders and its been so busy and rewarding.

My lash line name will be revealed later but I sold out on one set and awaiting shipment, I also ordered new styles and getting everything together to fully launch and do a new video.

The Style Gosssip is only personalized jewelry only, but I will be expanding, if you follow The Style Gosssip blog you will see me post blog posting, because as an aspiring personal stylist you get to see me bring outfits to life and talk my boutique and business.

I’m super excited about the new ventures and I’m expanding beyond belief to follow deferred dreams, remember as long as you have breath in your body you can accomplish anything.

I’m 40 years old and next year I’ll be a licensed Esthetician and then some.

My First Live Experience

November 24th, I went live on Instagram for the very first time, I was so nervous and excited. I created a Thanksgiving inspired look using the Morphe 3502 palette, which is their newest palette. The look was simple and easy to create.

I didn’t have a lot of attendance, but who cares? I did it, I stepped out my comfort zone and took a chance and I’ll do it again.

The products used were the same for my Thanksgiving face of the day.

If you attended my live, leave me some feedback lol. I’m open to improving and learning.

I’m ordering me a speaker so I could have music in the background and I’m investing in my iPad so I could record off there. There’s a mirror I want and I can’t wait to get so I could play music and do my makeup.

If you attended my live thank you from the bottom of my heart, I’m so glad you tuned in to support me.

Thanksgiving Inspired

Happy Belated thanksgiving beauties. I am thankful for my life, health, family, true friends, goals, grace and you all!!! I don’t need a holiday to be thankful though, I’m grateful for this everyday.

I still managed to do a makeup look. I went with the theme of the day and holiday. Here are the details:

🍁 Skin Prep

Snow ❄️ Queen

Hey beauties! I’m under the weather, but I came on to share my most recent look I done.

I’ve been having some new palettes that I hadn’t been playing in and I wanted to do a cool toned look with a pop of color. If you’ve been following me for some time, you know a. I love to be different b. I don’t follow the rules and C. I don’t really wear shimmer eyeshadows, so this look was definitely different for even me.

Mac released this collection a couple of months ago, called “Electric Wonder” a cool toned, neutral collection. My daughter bought me the palette called “Desert Lightening ” I fell in love with the packaging of course, but I never really played in it until now. I wanted to do something winter inspired but still keep the color vibrant in other words, I wanted a pop of color. I have to admit, I didn’t like the look at first, because I’m not a shimmer eyeshadow fan, but after seeing how this turned out and loving the selfies, I have to admit, I’m in love me.

Fashion With Beauty

Hey dolls, it’s been a minute since I’ve shared client photos with you. Saturday I had the opportunity to take my skills to the runway after a great referral. The theme was glam, so I entrusted my juvia’s Place Warrior palette to execute the looks. Maybelline fit me foundations was on front line and center.

I had a great time and wasn’t nervous at all, I also learned how to better prepare for large events as well, so next year, I will be better prepared, that’s what it’s all about learning and growing and networking.

So what do y’all think? Leave your comments below

Sticking To The Routine

Hi guys! I’ve been working a lot more these days and my iPhone storage has been tripping so I haven’t been able to upload any videos ugh so happy I’m getting my iPad soon.

I wanted to share my skincare routine with you while I’m working, my skin has seemed to revert back to its old state and I’m experiencing more breakouts ugh, the worse.

I decided to add my skincare routine when I was trying to wonder how to keep up my skincare routine then I thought back to the time I packed my items that I used at night, the only thing I won’t do is a mask that will have to be on my off days, but everything else I’m gamed.

Here’s my current skincare routine:

Boots has this bontanic softening cleanser that’s 82% organic, though I would’ve liked it more I’m still love the product, because my face is soft after massaging it in. The cleanser is made with rosehip in it and is natured inspired. I massage it in for one minute, then wipe with my CVS brand dips for the olay wipes, you have to wet to release this cleanser, when I’m done wiping in circular motions for a minute, I then rinse my face with hot water to open my pores and then switch to cold to close them. I pat my skin dry and use the package of Dickinson’s witch hazel wipes to tone my skin, I then follow with peroxide on my red pimples which I forgot tonight or acne treatment, my sample of Perriconne MD eye treatment, my spot corrector, serum, physicians formula vitamin c stick, black seed oil, vitamin E moisturizer oh and I do spritz my face after toning with Garnier rose spritz and then follow my lip care routine which can be carmex lip balm Nicka k lip oil, Nicka k rose gold lip oil or gloss, and a beauty supply lipgloss for $1 that I’m almost done collecting every flavor

That’s it I’m now working on finding a great dark spot corrector.
