The Ultimate Beauty Boss-Jennifer Lopez

The Ultimate Beauty Boss-Jennifer Lopez

September was dedicated to the #beautyboss and I had fun celebrating all the boss babes that I am fortunate to have in our #Motivestribe!

Last weekend the Motives Beauty & Business Academy took me to Vegas and how fitting is it that I had the pleasure to meet the epitome of what I know entrepreneurial woman are about and is the most driven, talented, loving, hard working, loving, real, humble woman and star-Jennifer Lopez.


Loren & Jennifer



One of the things that I admire is how much she supports one of her bestest friends, Loren Ridinger and her line Motives Cosmetics. JLO loves our business and products, but beyond that, I admire their friendship and how they support each other 100%!

What an honor it was to be treated like VIPs and rock stars at one of Jennifer’s last shows in Vegas Friday night and I am beyond thankful to have had the chance to be in her presence by meeting her after the best show I have witnessed!! I will cherish this moment forever!! This was truly a magic moment of mine!! Thank you to JLO for taking the time to touch our lives and to Loren Ridinger for making it all possible!

I am thankful to work beside my mentor Lisa Martin. As a Field Consultant for Motives Cosmetics. I agreed to take on this role with the goal of empowering even more women, and am blessed to have beautiful, empowered women like Lisa, Jennifer and Loren who continually inspire me.

Motives Tribe

With Motives I have found my tribe.  A group that supports each other.  I have searched my entire life to find people that are like this.  No competition, no jealousy, but an attitude of how can we empower one another.







Please follow your dreams and find a tribe that supports you and pushes you to your full potential! If you want to be part of ours, you are more than welcome!❤️

Are You Really Capitalizing on this BILLION DOLLAR Industry?

Are You Really Capitalizing on this BILLION DOLLAR Industry?

Cosmetics-Are you really capitalizing on this BILLION DOLLAR market?

The United States Cosmetic Industry is the largest in the world, estimating a total revenue of $54.89 BILLION! This industry is projected to grow 3-4% each year over the next 5 years in the United States

Why?  Look at the statistics:

Emotional Attachment
*Nearly half of women in the US feel that wearing makeup makes them in control
*82% of women believe wearing makeup makes them feel more self confidence
*86% of women find that wearing makeup improves their self image
It’s an IMMEDIATE fix and helps us communicate the mood we
are in and it’s less committal than other changes to our look. We can WASH it off and start fresh & create looks from day to night or night to day 😉

Makeup = Confidence! It encourages people to prioritize themselves. It’s not to impress other people, but rather to empower ourselves
Making people feel beautiful is so rewarding in many ways…
It was estimated that $17.3 billion USD of beauty sales were generated
through online stores and mail-order product sales.
For those selling product online, they were able to reach a wider variety of customers without the hassle of opening new retail stores.  Good for them, but not for the salons…

What Influences Consumer Beauty Shopping?
*75% of prestige beauty shoppers reported they were somewhat / strongly influenced by product reviews / endorsements
*It’s important to have reviews on your website
*52% of prestige beauty shoppers reported they were somewhat / strongly influenced by ‘Best Of’ awards
*Promoting a line that is receiving awards and recognition
*Celebrity Endorsements had a lesser effect
*Clients want recommendations from people they trust



Challenges for pros
Salons-Finding professional quality brands to retail
*Mediocre products developed by haircare brands just to have-no focus on quality or education
*Private Label-quality usually isn’t great, have to order large inventory-6 at a time, no branding
*Exclusive retail brands-Large quotas, startup intros, now going directly to consumer-ie:Jane Iredale, large inventory is needed-no websites offered
*Dept store brands-Pro card option but not allowed to retail

Spring/Summer 2016 Motives Cosmetics Release

2 million followrs on stageI just got back from Miami last night where I attended the World Conference with over 20K entrepreneurs from around the globe.  It was an amazing memorable event and I am excited to share some of the new products released.  I couldn’t wait to share with you the new Spring/Summer 2016 Trend collection.  This is one of the reasons I love the change of the seasons, I get to learn new ideas and get new makeup!

This season’s collection is “IN THE HEAT OF THE NIGHT”

With metallic and glittery shades, complemented by neutral mattes, create looks that sizzle from summer flings to steamy nights.

I love seeing the browns and plum tones, but really love the shimmer these new shadows have.  If you have ever had the opportunity to try Motives Cosmetics, then you know how pigmented everything is.  The colors are so beautiful on the skin.

There is also an addition to my favorite Ultra Matte Lipstick Collectionlipstick
The key to a seductive look? The perfect, matte lip. Indulge your lips in Seduced, a neutral pink that provides the perfect pout to a hot, hot night.
I was excited to see another color added, because I have been OBSESSED with this lipstick.  My lips don’t dry out or flake, and the color stays all day!
Here are a few more pictures that I took with my iPhone to show you the colors.
Not only did I get to play with all of the new makeup, I also attended several trainings, and was surrounded by the beautiful and talented Motives Mavens: @makeupbydenise, @maryamnyc, @ellarie and of course my mentor the amazing Loren Ridinger.image
