Young Entrepreneurs Round Up

Creativity is step one. Innovation is step two.

Entrepreneurship requires strategic planning and execution. It is comprised of two major processes: creativity and innovation. Creativity is the ability to develop new ideas and ways to look at problems as well as opportunities. Innovations involves application of those creative ideas to actual problems and opportunities to enhance lives and to enrich a society. We all have ideas that we wish to implement but too often we allow these ideas to make our minds their home. Your ideas can become substance but you must be disciplined and determined as our young entrepreneurs.

Eyebrows on Squiggle

Just when you thought your eyebrow game was on fleek and flawless to a T, social media wanted to switch it up on us!  Thats right!  Squiggle brows is a new eyebrow trend that will have you totally flabbergasted if you have not witnessed the new trend yet.  This new brow trend popped up out of nowhere by beauty and makeup influencers.  They are having so much fun with this squiggly look!  I have been seeing these squiggle brows all over my instagram discover feed in total shock.  When I first saw it, I really did not know how to feel.  I was stuck in between the thought of “should I draw squiggly brows on my face the next time I want to get cute?” or should I absolutely hate the jaw dropping trend?   Continue reading Eyebrows on Squiggle

Makeup Free Week

Happy Monday! Are you up for a challenge?

You should try and go makeup free for the entire week! Here’s 5 reasons why you should take this awesome challenge:

1) It will save you time
Normally, doing makeup in the morning can take thirty minutes to an hour or longer before you go to work or run out to do your errands. Why not spend that extra thirty minutes or hour getting a little more sleep or eating breakfast!

2) It will allow your natural beauty to showmakeup 2
By wearing makeup, your natural beauty is hidden under your cosmetics. Instead of wearing makeup, let the world see your natural rosy cheeks, your long eyelashes, and even show off your freckles! Being natural is beautiful.

3) This will give you younger looking and healthier
Some makeup clogs your pores and makes it difficult for your skin to keep its PH balance. If you have sensitive skin, makeup can actually make you get acne. Letting your face breathe and take a break for a week from makeup can leave your skin glowing and look brighter than ever!

4) It can save you money
Imagine not buying any lipstick, mascara, blush, or even foundation for a week or two. Over time that can save you a lot more money which you could invest in other items or activities. Maybe reduce buying makeup to twice every couple of weeks and little by little try to spend less on your makeup collection!

5) It will send a positive message
If you have a daughter or younger girl that looks up to you, seeing yo u go makeup free for a week is a positive outlook. She will see you being natural while still looking good without makeup and maybe follow in your same footsteps.

There’s nothing wrong with wearing makeup! Wearing it from time to time can actually make you feel prettier and maybe even a bit classier. Just remember to love your natural beauty as well as your beautiful made up face!
