“I don’t care if Monday’s blue, Tuesday’s gray and Wednesday too. Thursday I don’t care about you; it’s Friday, I’m in love.”
Aside from my lyrical musings, it is Friday; and I’m here to introduce another guest for Bionic’s Powerful Beauty series. This week Ebony Sparks, a Certified Lash Stylist and Cosmetologist, shares her definition of Powerful Beauty.
Ebony has been applying Xtreme Lashes for over three years. As a former trainer for the company, she’s received extensive education in lash application techniques and taught hundreds of beauty professionals across the United States to apply eyelash extensions with precision and an artistic eye. Her patience and expertise in the art of lash styling has garnered her a well-known reputation as the go-to woman for lash extensions. Her home base is the Etsetera Salon in Houston, Texas. However, her clients fly in from as far as California and DC for her specialized expertise.
Now that is how you define success; and here is how Ebony defines Powerful Beauty…
“Powerful beauty is defined by success. When a woman has confidence within herself, beauty develops from within. With a busy lifestyle maintaining the basic “upkeep” of ourselves demands coordination, efficiency, and punctuality. Comparing to many of our counterparts, a woman’s drive and motivation are key components to maintaining her own identity.” ~ Ebony Sparks
My thoughts: Confidence, inner beauty, drive, motivation- all keys to being a well rounded and successful woman. It really doesn’t matter if you definition of success is different than someone else. After all, that is what makes us unique. Success for one woman may be a high profile career; a leading role in a movie; or raising two children; or checking off the last few items on a to-do list. But that is where we, as women, sometimes get off track. We get so tied up comparing ourselves to our peers, that we forget how our individual success should be defined.
Fellow Bionic Beauties: how do you define Powerful Beauty? And where do you think we tend to slip up?
Catch up on the rest of the Powerful Beauty features. And remember to check back each Friday for another dose of how to Achieve Powerful Beauty!
