13 May

Yeah, it’s been that kind of a week!! Getting thoughts and confidence together to do my first photo shoot. Which in the end, I did complete, Check out that out here. But after the photo shoot was done and everything, the photographer treated brother and myself to dinner, along with another photographer and the main photographers wife. It was a thoughtful suggestion.

We spoke about different things like doing different types of photo shoots, more editorial shoots, my possibly writing the latest trend articles related to Makeup Tips, Tricks and ideas for the new season. So far I’ve yet to get the meat of the article together. I just have the pictures and a title line. Maybe I’ll get some inspiration today as I continue to work up my blogs today. He also wants me to start helping out in more ways then just MUA. Possible creative director for shoots, along with a being a in a more hands on way to collaborate in the creative process. 

We will see how all that turns out. His work is pretty nice! Check him out, Derek Palmer Photography.

Now that was the biggest amount of drama, however that was only at the end of my week. The beginning of the week was much more problematic. My ex Beau had a bone to pick with me over a huge misunderstanding. 

A friend of his wanted to get a few plus size ladies to model for photo he wanted to do. There wasn’t a lot of information given, which a the time I was unaware of that. I asked some important questions to help determine whether or not I would be interested in modeling or helping out. Well the ex thought I was just being difficult on purpose and not wanting to do it. So he got agitated and bothered by my questions and information seeking. Little did he realize that I was honestly impressed and grateful that he thought so highly of me to think I would be pretty enough to be a model. For him to think of me as such a beauty to promote plus size women was touching. 

To me it was a treat to think that he was still physically attracted to me to share my looks with a wide range of others. But somewhere in the conversation it broke down to “you asking to many questions I don’t have the answer to, if you don’t want to do it then don’t.” Things like that. Shameful. The thought of arguing with him shakes me to the core to no end. When we don’t get along it bothers me something terrible. 

He’s been my bff for over 13 years. He’s seen me through some of the toughest times in my life. I don’t always come at him with a tude or a problem. Honestly, I just want to sit and watch movies and relax when we’re together. I mean who doesn’t want to do that?! 

But after I figure out that it was just a misunderstanding on my part and his, he couldn’t even agree that I was right. That it was just that simple. He chose to continue with his jackassery. Knowing that he just wanted to push it to the limit. Three days later of way too much assholery to be around he finally broke. 

He laughed at my joke!!! I knew I could get to him. He cares about me too much to stay mad at me too long. Finally getting passed the problem, he showed me the attention I only really wanted. There maybe hope for us yet. Lol. Maybe.  


Don’t know where to start….

8 May

There is so much going on I really don’t know where to start. I did a many haul from MAC the other day. You can check that out my beauty blog here: http://beautymarqd.wordpress.com


After that I head back about the Photo shoot, which will be this Saturday! I’m super excited about that. The photo shoot will be with two different looks, so this will give me a chance to showcase two different looks. I’m hoping to provide pictures soon. And then there is the Video shoot schedule for June. If all happens well my portfolio will be well on it’s way to perfection!!

My mind is going a mile a minute I can’t even get my thoughts straight.

I have another post I want to share later about how everything is coming together in my world, but I can barely get my words to form sentences. Only in my life! 

LOL, Have a great day!!  

Fingers crossed!

Upon my realization of life, I’ve looked into several options for advancement and success on my life. As you may or may not know I’ve been looking for a major source of income after losing my job in Nov. After a few interviews in my former profession (banking) I decided to try my hand at a life long passion Makeup.

I’m sure you maybe thinking anybody can do makeup. Which is true. Anybody can. The difference is what each person puts onto it. When I do a look I continue until I feel that its perfected. I look at YouTube, Instagram, and other print work.

Slowly I’ve been putting myself out into the world. To have my work viewed, judged, liked, dislike, wanted, considered, and maybe even overlooked. Weeks of coming up with a company identity to say “this is me. this is who I am.” I’m marked with beauty.

I’m Beauty Marq’d. (Marquita is my first name, hence Marq’d).

But since I’ve put myself out there I’ve gotten an overwhelming feedback. Put more of yourself out there. Instagramers, bloggers, and makeup lovers in many communities are supporting me and my work. #yay me!

The most important support came from a long ago friend that I knew years ago. He’s a photographer. Owner of Derek Palmer Photograph, he’s been into photography for several years and wanted to collaborate with me. He saw my work and wanted to see more. Wants to set up a photo shoot, even refer work my way! Who knew?

My work is in demand!


That’ll put a smile on anybodies face.

Don’t look now, but you may see me up in lights before you know!

My Life is better than I thought….

28 Apr

Me So apparently my life is way better then I thought…. I started a blog for my Makeup Business, BeautyMarq’ds Blog, and it’s slowly coming into its own. However, my personal life seems to be more fun. I enjoy my life, don’t get me twisted. But I never thought I would have as much interest in my life as I do. This is truly mind boggling!!

Who’d a thunk it! LOL.

Makeup is my passion, please believe me. I can enjoy the new shades of the season in practically anything. I sit at my vanity and practice looks. I YouTube, Google, and Instagram looks most days to see the last fashion and trends to be in the “know.” And at the end of the day I snap away at myself to try the capture the best sides of myself and my work.

My Makeup is my passionate side. It stands out. It literally have people stop me and ask if I have a professional Makeup Artist that does my makeup….

Uh Yeah!! I do! Her name is Me! Lol. She’s a pretty cool cat! I like her.

It’s always nice to know your work is appreciated…..

But when all that’s said and done I’m back to being me. Simple and quiet. Goofy at times, but always a realist. That’s who I like to be. It’s refreshing to know that my Alter Ego isn’t the only personality that people like.

Happy Days
