DIY Lipstick & Lipgloss tutorial from #MystikyMaquillage by Maya Danielle: & How creating my own beauty products and becoming an entrepreneur is more fun than it is work

If you’re going to be Young, Loud, and Proud you’ve got to look good doing it… right?

That’s what I was thinking the moment I decided to officially open an Etsy shop and launch my uniquely, homemade beauty products.

I want to create products that are going to make girls & women smile and enhance their best facial features: lips!

I’ve always wanted to become an entrepreneur and I finally found my niche.

If you’re like me you may find it hard to find a color that you think is suitable for everyday wear or maybe you’re just gaining the confidence to wear bright colors well #PBL has a ton of nude colors to choose from, tinted colors with purple, red & pink undertones!

Think your lips are too small for a particular color or just too BIG? I’m here to tell you there’s no such thing as the wrong color and with Pretty Big Lips each shade is uniquely crafted with you in mind!

Here’s a few shades I’ve created so far:

For updates/a sneak peek into the process of creating my beauty products you can always check out my Instagram page, story & story highlights (@mystik.y / highlights: “YLPlippie”)

I love my lips (I want you to fall in love with yours too)!!

It’s an amazing feeling when you’re able to embrace things about yourself especially if they were once insecurities.

I was teased all throughout my childhood for my “soup coolers” & “Jay-Z lips” now, women are paying BIG bucks to have their lips look like mine. Ha!

Although it took a while for some people to see the beauty in my African features I always knew how poppin my lips were I was just a bit insecure to wear any color on them; I would think about how dramatic each color appeared and be insecure but those days are over!

I love my pretty big lips so why not make an honest living with them!? —> this isn’t supposed to be an inappropriate joke.

(Also not a joke! Email me if you wouldn’t mind if I pop up with #PRETTYBIGLIPS & “An Ode to the “Good Girl”” near you: proudloudyoung@gmail.com)

Two years ago, I started making my own lipstick and gloss as a craft and fun hobby but the more I practice the more I see the potential in creating a great entrepreneurial opportunity.

Enjoy a short DIY video to show a little of the process:

Some of my favorite items to use to create my lipstick are:

Coconut oil

Beeswax

My #goals are to continue to spread truth, love, hope, and inspiration to young people and to do it in style. I’m just a young girl from Philadelphia with a vision.

Black Utopia

You’re going to the black utopia? Can I go too?

Where the sky isn’t a typical blue

but a reddish, orangy, golden-sparkly hue.

Everyone there is just like you.

Selfless, patient, loving, intelligent, enlightening too.

Honey pours from the trees and blessings, not death, comes in threes.

You and I are the same, of course, you’d believe,

there aren’t any status symbols symbolizing or separating us because of what we believe.

There’s only one religion and that’s the belief of a longing love.

Everyone would raise their heads and never bow them again to talk to the “one above.”

We’d float down to heaven, then up to our super earth again, and then, wherever our wings would have us travelin…

Maybe we’d stop pass the old mars or visit the first stars and see everything we generalized into being just “space.”

We’ll spin and twirl and twirl and spin, until finally we pick up the pace.

We’d name everything we touch bc it would be ours to do just so, there be enough to go around no need for fighting never anyone going toe to toe.

I heard of this place called the “black uptopia” I heard it’s a place you’ve been to…

I only have one question for you.

If this place the “black utopia” exists, can I go with you?

A girl who’s finally free #ForeverHoldYourPiece

Nina Simone said no fear is freedom.

I’m a girl who’s finally feeling free.

I met a fearless God the night when I stared at the sea and saw the stars align with the moon

The moon shined brighter than I had ever seen and sitting on the top of the moon was me.

A little brown girl was smiling big and bright right back at me.

I asked her about life and death-her preference of life or death.

I don’t want to die I told her. I want to be forever young, young forever, loved forever.

I know God is real when I got an answer.

I flew through the heavens and thought for the very first time I was worth more than I thought I was.

Maybe nothing means everything and life is just practice for something else.

Preparation for everything to come, but what if nothing happens?

But she told me death is only a moment of darkness; then it’s all light.
