CHI is one of those household brand names that everyone knows. I’ve used CHI ever since I was a teenager. One of my favorite products growing up was their biosilk. I remember my mom and I fighting over the bottle all the time. LOL
So, when Farouk invited me and other members of the Houston Latina Bloggers to come and get make-overs using CHI products, I jumped at the opportunity.
I love it when a group of strangers can come together and make something work. That is exactly what happened when I decided to have a photoshoot at my house. I hit up Jared from JA Fusion, on facebook and told him I wanted to take some pictures. Within a matter of minutes, we had a date set.
About a day or so later, he asked if I had anyone to do my hair and make-up and truth be told, I didn’t! He told me not to worry and in the blink of an eye he rounded up Nikki from Nikki Lea Beautyy and Albany (a 2nd photographer) from Iriswings.
I have to tell you, that I was a bit nervous getting in front of a camera. I know, those that know me might be saying NO WAY! But it is true, posing is hard work and to be honest I didn’t think I could pull it off.
Regardless of what I thought, they all made me feel extremely comfortable. Nikki did a phenomenal job on my make-up. I have never looked that good before. Thanks again Nikki.
Al kept making me laugh, he broke the ice and made me feel really comfortable. He also helped me pick out some outfits. He’s got a creative eye for what looks good. Thanks Al.
And Jared, he truly is a master at his craft. He has a way of putting me at ease in front of the camera and we work really well together. Thanks Jared! I hope all of you enjoy these pictures as much as I enjoyed taking them. I can’t wait for our next collab.
If you don’t know by now, Jentry Kelley is one of the most Down-to-Earth, Fabulous, Fierce, and Empowered woman in the make-up game! She was recently named Fashion Houston’s Beauty Director and is CEO of Jentry Kelley Cosmetics.
On November 2nd, Uptown Post Oak Luxury Apartments hosted a Sunday Makeup Funday class taught by no other than Jentry Kelley herself!
The event was as perfect as her beautifully “dolled up” face! She taught everyone in the room about how to properly match foundation, how to apply bronzer, and the do’s and don’ts of eye and lip application.
My favorite part of the class was learning about the ombre’ lip. Am I the only one that didn’t know that existed? I’m telling you, my life has changed knowing that you can have a different lip liner color than your lipstick. Obviously, you don’t want to get crazy with it! Make sure to pair colors that compliment each other, duh!
I also learned the importance of having well-trimmed and highlighted eyebrows. Jentry has this amazing eyebrow lift kit that will change your life.
What I truly enjoyed best about this make-up tutorial was how funny Jentry was. Her personality lit up the room and you could tell how passionate she was about her product. She made us all laugh and was not afraid to be honest about commonly made make-up faux paus.
Thanks Jentry for taking the time out to speak to us. I can’t wait to see what you do at Fashion Houston!
Recently I decided to raise my blogging stakes and have a photoshoot! This shoot was a fun way for me to showcase my style & fashion. It’s also a way for you to get to know me better. Now, I haven’t received all my photos just yet but I figured why not release some teaser shots! I want to say thanks to Jared Li from JA Fusion Photography, Albany from Iriswings and Nikki from Nikki Lea Beautyy for making this such a creative and fun process!
I’m the kind of person that LOVES to change my hair. With that being said, none of my changes have been too drastic…until NOW. I’ve been looking at the Ombre’ trend for the past couple of months. And while I liked it, I was nervous to try it out. I mean, would my hair look like those models on the magazine? My hair is frizzy and I knew that the Houston humidity would NOT do it any good. After months of going back and forth, I decided to just go for it. I mean, if I didn’t like it I could always go back….right? So I went to Ivan at Avila’s Hair Salon and with much hesitation and a wine glass filled with courage, I took the plunge. The result? Well check them out below! I not only LOVE it but I’m OBSESSED! To get the perfect curls, use a styling wand! It works wonders.
I love to get my nails done and I do it just about every 2 weeks. When shellac came on the market, I was hooked! Nail polish that lasted longer than a couple of days was fantastic. The only problem? It costs so much do! I started looking for alternatives like Hansen’s at home gel manicure but that never really lasted as long.
Then, my Colombian friend came to me and told me about Masglo. It’s a special nail polish that acts JUST like shellac. And the best part is, the bottle of nail polish only costs $2.00! I kid you not! I tried my first color recently and I am hooked. I plan on ordering more colors to play with. They also last about two weeks as well.
That’s it for your beauty insider tip!
So, I’ll start this off by saying that I’ve always been kind of jealous of girls that can rock vibrant lipstick colors. I NEVER thought to be one of them until now.
The lipstick that has completely changed my life is MAC’s Retro Matte Flat Out Fabulous! This lipstick has given me the confidence to rock all kinds of colors. The reason why I love it so much? It stays on ALL day! I swear! Even after I eat too.
It’s the lipstick from heaven and I am so happy that I found it. This summer, you will see me playing with all kinds of lip colors. I can’t wait!
That’s it for your beauty insider tip!
First off, let me start by saying HAPPY FRIDAY! We made it to the end of the work week! Doesn’t it feel great? I know I’m ready for the weekend and I’m looking forward to all of the events I’m going to!
That being said, a lot of these events will be outdoor and this Texas heat has no mercy on my skin. So, I’ve been looking for a skin purifying cleanse that will get rid of all that sweat and dirt accumulated on my face and body. And guess what, I’ve found it!
If you haven’t already, you MUST try Neutrogena’s Naturals collection. It’s a body and facial cleanser that will have you feeling brand spanking new again. It’s so refreshing and you can literally feel all the gunk melt away as you wash.
That’s your beauty insider tip for the day!
