Beyond Beauty: Self Love…

If you’ve been following the blog for some time you may have come across my Love Yourself Completely post. I’ve posted it twice here and both times I was met with such love and encouragement from Queens (here and on my social media accounts) about the message. In that post I talk about loving yourself completely and embracing everything about you. Total self acceptance. “Flaws” and all. I also talked about the things I experienced in my past that I learned to embrace and accept about myself. That transparency with you all was major for me. I’ve never really spoke out on something so personal. Writing about beauty is easy. It comes naturally to me and it’s something I’m passionate about. But what’s not so easy is being transparent and I was really happy to see such positive feedback.

Vintage Beauty | Love Yourself Completely

*VINTAGE BEAUTY post from This Brown Queen originally posted in April 2013*

Hello beauties! I wanted to take today to focus on something different than my usual ramblings. Today I wanted to talk about inner beauty and loving yourself. One of the most important things you can do Queens is to LOVE YOURSELF COMPLETELY. To me, this means not only accepting but embracing everything that makes you uniquely YOU! God makes no mistakes Queens. You look how you look, you are who you are for a very divine reason. While makeup is fun (clearly, you have witnessed my obsession!), it isn’t a means of transformation but rather a means of enhancement. To enhance your natural beautiful self. We are ALL beauty Queens in our own way!

This is one of my favorite quick pictures. Not because of the makeup (but do you see that gorgeous pink in my inner corner? Loveee) but rather the up close and personal features of ME. When I was younger I was teased for my forehead and my big eyes.  Kids be so cruel man! But I mean…it IS true, and I LOVE it! I EMBRACE IT. What they may have called big, I call amazing. I make my eyes stand out every chance I get (not that they need it 😉 ).  But this is me. Take it or leave it! What’s funny though…is when I started loving me, the “teasing” grew to compliments. What used to be viewed negatively, I flaunted and then it was cool. Life is funny like that. The point of my post Queens is this: Never alter yourself for the sake of others. Love Yourself first and others will follow. And if they don’t follow…you don’t really need to be associated with those people anyway 😉

Fabulous Friday: Love Yourself Completely!

For this Fabulous Friday edition I wanted to take a minute to focus not on makeup but on your personal beauty and how you feel about yourself. One of the most important things you can do for yourselves Queens is to LOVE YOURSELF COMPLETELY. To me, this means not only accepting but embracing everything about you that makes you uniquely YOU! God makes no mistakes Queens. You look how you look, you are who you are for a very divine reason. While makeup is fun, I mean I L.O.V.E it!, it is not a means to transform you (unless you’re actually going for that) but  a means of enhancement. To enhance your beautiful self. We are ALL beauty Queens in one way or another!

This is a picture of me yesterday. I don’t want to focus on my actual makeup in this picture but rather the features that I enhanced. When I was younger I was teased for my large forehead and my big eyes.  I mean it’s true though haha! I have a big head so what. So does Tyra Banks ;). And my eyes? Well they are just large lol! But rather than wear bangs (which was actually suggested to me by a hairstylist go figure) or downplay my eyes with dark colors, I EMBRACE it! I enhance it. Most of the time I wear my hair pulled back. Not only because it’s easier, but it’s healthier for my hair so that’s what I do. And my eyes are actually my FAVORITE feature so you damn right I’m gonna use the brightest damn colors I can find to make them stand out (not that they need it 😉 ).  But this is me. Take it or leave it! And you know what? When I started loving me, the teasing turned to compliments! At least a few times a week I get complimented on my bright eyes. People always comment on them, but now in a positive way. Call me crazy but I think, that when *I* started loving them, others started to follow.

The point of my post Queens is this: Never alter yourself for the sake of others. Love Yourself first and others will follow. And if they don’t follow…you don’t really need to be associated with those people anyway 😉

Enjoy your Friday Queens and stay Fabulous! Peace and Love ❤
