To join in on the Forbidden Beauty movement - go to my Instagram and post of picture of yourself with a clean face using #forbiddenbeauty and a note describing what you find beautiful about yourself.
- Finding beauty in others has allowed me to find beauty in myself.
- I started attending BBU University in New York...there’s my opportunity to make it the best career for myself.
- In beauty school, they don’t teach you a lot about makeup.
- I took off to L.A. to learn how to be a professional makeup artist.
- Most women are doing exactly what they started doing in their younger years…I’ve realized they’re not changing some of those tools or applications as they’ve matured – their look has not matured with them.
- They look more dated than they need to be because of their lack of education.
- The hair and makeup is the camouflage that that’s allowing them to present themselves in public. Even if it doesn’t look right – they feel that’s the cover they need.
- I believe in natural beauty, but I also believe in enhancing what you have.
- Bringing out the best you, the beautiful you that resides inside and breaking down that old exterior, the look you may have had that was your security blanket back in 1980...It becomes a beautiful moment.
- I do believe it’s [social media] taken the industry I’ve come to love to a whole other level.
- It [social media] has led people down a different pathway of not being their true authentic self with their authentic true image…the only filter they need to put on themselves is the filter they see in the morning – that raw image, because that’s the most beautiful image you can present to anybody, especially yourself.
- The bottom line is you really have to face your insecurities and what is holding you back from feeling a level of freedom and a sense of release from these insecurities.
- Of your authentic beauty – you’re only doing yourself a disservice…you’re the only one remaining hostage in that filtered presentation.
- Break down that need to do that trend in order to fit in.
- There’s a lot to be left if you’re stripped down and naked in front of everybody. You have to come to a very comfortable space within yourself and realize what you have inside that is going to make you different than everybody else standing in the room with the same nakedness.
- If we are all in a sea of sameness – what is going to make you stand out?
- It’s okay to embrace your strands of glitter. Use them to your advantage or cover them up – just don’t use too dark of a color.
- We all need to focus on being our authentic, true, beautiful self because that is what will make us stand out.
- Comparing yourself to those celebrity images or lifestyle, you’re only keeping yourself hostage and then hurting yourself and then realize the example you’re going to be to daughter, to your child, to your son that your authentic beauty is not good enough.
- I love it [social media] but we have to be real with ourselves and understand that beauty – we’re our own beauty. What we see in the tabloids, on T.V., that’s a character.
- There’ are professionals for a reason.
- Embracing what you have is, I think my most important message, to anyone and everyone out there, fall in love with yourself before you fall in love with a character.
