Being A Girl Boss In This World And Finding Your Own Tribe

We are all familiar with Beyoncé’s “Who runs the world? GIRLS!” right? Well, this is for every woman who is trying to break through on her own and do her own thing.

Us women have to inspire and support each other because that is what’s going to help us grow as individuals as well as grow our businesses. We have to find like-minded people  who can connect, understand and inspire us, who we are and who we are trying to become.

When you’re trying to build a business from the ground up, it can be really taxing to have to explain yourself and your new ideas or dreams to those closest to you because they just don’t get it! Who really has the time for that nonsense? This is where your Girl Boss Tribe comes in! Find mentors or those who are in the same situation as you, those who are now trying to break through on their own, those who are just as shy, nerve wracked and stressed as you! Find them! Befriend them!

By nature, us women are very strong, intelligent, resilient and powerful beings. We are focused and committed when we need to be and these qualities are exactly what emanates when it comes to our businesses.  That’s what makes a great foundation for whatever we are trying to build. And that is exactly what will take us to the top! Along with our little tribe of course!

You cannot constantly surround yourself with people who are not on the same page as you in this life, nor those who are unable to support, drive or inspire you. Step out of your comfort zone and create a support system that works for you. This support system will take you places you’ve never been before. It will help elevate your life, career – everything!

Be a Girl Boss because you’ve found something you’re good at and something you love to do, run with it and create a legacy!

Find your Tribe because when things get tough, you’re gonna need that support. Sometimes you just need your girls with wine glasses in hands and a box of pizza on the table in front of you. They’d understand the struggles of troublesome clients, slow days, long days and days of no sleep because guess what? They’re either going through the same damn thing or have done so before and can offer you the world of advice to get you where you need to be!

It’s tough being a Girl Boss, but it’s worth it! ❤

Now put on some lipstick and go take over the world!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Just Sprinkle A Little Glitter Everywhere You Go

Recently, we have been seeing one of the most recent and most popular trends in the beauty industry- Glitter! Who doesn’t want to vamp up their look with a little sparkle? From red carpets to runways to YouTube sensations, it seems like everyone has jumped on this glitter train and who can really blame them?

To create any look using glitter, one must possess at least two products in one’s makeup arsenal:

  1. An all purpose glitter glue. I recently got my hands on the NYX Glitter Primer– This formula is light and creamy and serves the purpose of keeping every speck of glitter right where it’s supposed to be. I used this primer as a base for creating a glitter liner cut crease and it worked most successfully. I love the consistency and the formula as it does not get tacky nor clumpy when trying to apply. For me, this is definitely a keeper!

  1. Glitter! Duh! For the look I created I used Inglot AMC Pure Pigment eyeshadow in 115. This shade is the prettiest shade of light pink, iridescent with a hint of gold. I am absolutely in  love with it! You can use this pigment to top off eyeshadow in cases where you need a little more pop or you can create your own glitter liner as I did. Either way, it works beautifully!

Once you’ve got these two products in under you sleeve, you’re already on your way to creating any glitter look!

Feeling Inspired When You Lose Motivation…

Let’s face it, we all lose motivation at some point in time. There are days when you wake up and you can hardly wait to go conquer the world. I’ve had about a month straight of those days. I felt so inspired every morning that I would feel like a force that needed to be reckoned with. Then, I went on vacation and got caught up in other things, losing sight of my goals and progress. Once you get to a point of relaxation, I find it very difficult to pull yourself out of it and get back to your regularly scheduled program.

Do not allow yourself to get stuck in an unproductive rot. This can be very dangerous for obvious reasons, especially if you are like me and in the process of building a business from the ground up. This means that your attention needs to be focused on your business 100% of the time! My business requires me to constantly be active on social media and to constantly market myself and my services. Without this, there is no business! Without business, there is no money and without money, there is no life- let’s be real!

Here are some tips that can help you get back to your beautiful, inspired self once again:

  1. Remind yourself why you got into your hobbies or field of work in the first place. I usually look at YouTube videos or Instagram accounts of my favorite makeup artists for some inspiration. Doing this tends to reawaken the passion I have for my art and my skill as a makeup artist. It can also aid in giving you fresh, new ideas if you happen to be stuck in a creative rot.
  2. Ensure your work space and environment is best suited for productivity. “There is a direct correlation between an increased sphere of comfort and getting what you want”- Timothy Ferriss. Look around your room or your workspace. Does it inspire you? Does it give you motivation? Is it peaceful and soothing? Is it quiet or loud? Is it distracting? Sometimes the hardest thing we do to ourselves is work in a place that we know is going to have us produce mediocre results. Build your ideal workplace and choose your ideal work time. What works for some, may not work for others. So don’t worry if you choose to work at 2am when your spouse and family are asleep. Do what you need to do to get to where you need to be.
  3. Don’t over-work yourself! Take a break, recharge, then continue with a fresh mind. This way, you feel motivated for longer.
  4. Remind yourself what you are trying to accomplish, set goals, set timelines and remember why you are doing it.  This will surely jolt you into action once again!

And don’t worry, it happens to the best of us. You are great at what you do! So take a breather, drink some tea, eat some cake and get back to it! 🙂

Hope these tips help!
