I know many people have different definitions and visions of the word 'beauty'.. But mine is different. I think beauty really does come from within so basically I set up this page too help Any girl learn some super easy steps that can really help transform any insecurities that are maybe holding them back from showing their TRUE beauty.. I sound super corny. Some tutorials ive seen were confusing so I will try and keep them simple.. If i see something I can most definitely do it! ( hair and makeup related of course ... And computers but Thats a whole other story.) You know when you see something that makes you stop and say I NEED TO KNOW HOW TO DO iT... Well I can help!! When it comes to makeup ive very rarely followed the rules. Ive always been a trial and error girl ..

  1. Accept responsibility for your life. Know that it is you who will get you where you want to go, no one else.–Les Brown

    When I began my transformation six months ago this was my motivation.

  2. My favourite quote is definitely : “a queen is never late, the others are just earlier”. Ok this one isn't very deep but I seriously say this all the time because i'm a late person haha. I'm just alwaaaaays late and i have to say (no shame here haha) it's always because of my makeup haha. Love u Carli and thank u for this amazing giveway

  3. My others must be “never a failure always a lesson”. It helps in bad situation.. Whatever thank u again for this love u so much

  4. 'Never dull your shine for somebody else.'- Tyra banks
    This is my favorite quote because it's so important to shine. I'm a girly girl and I love getting all dolled up, it lifts the spirit and boosts confidence. I believe that confidence is the key to shine. Tyra Banks is such and empowering woman and she's one of many women that inspire me everyday.

  5. “Let your faith be bigger than your fear”

    I really loooove this phrase! I really do 🙂

    Recently, I was very overwhelmed and stressed because of a health problem! I found myself extremely sad. I was crying every morning, every night. The only thing that gave me comfort was praying!

    I prayed to God every single day. Despite my sadness, I neeeever lost faith and hope! I am not going to lie… I was very scared, but I never allowed my fear to became bigger than my faith on God! And guess what? Three days ago, the doctor told me that everything is under control 🙂

    THANK GOD I am completely healthy :))) you can't even imagine the happiness in me… I am too grateful for the miracle of life! This experience was certainly very difficult for me, but it made me realized that we can't lose faith! God is always by our side! 🙂

  6. My favourite quote is this one: “Never let it be said that to dream is a waste of one's time. Our dreams are our realities in waiting. In dreams, we plant the seeds to our future.” I love this quote because i see myself in it. I am a very dreamy person, i dream how my house will look, what kind of dog i will have, everything, and even if maany people told me to come to reality, that the life that i dream is that, just a dream, i refuze to listen to them, i am happy dreaming.

  7. “If you want your life to be a magnificent story, then begin by realizing you are the author and everyday, you have the opportunity to wright a new page” published may 9, 2012. For curly hair special occasion video. First video I saw and I copied my hair like that almost everyday. I loved you since carli ❤. Umi Santiago

  8. Hi Carli,
    How you doing?

    My favorite quote is : “You don’t have to be pretty. You don’t owe prettiness to anyone. Not to your boyfriend/spouse/partner, not to your co-workers, especially not to random men on the street. You don’t owe it to your mother, you don’t owe it to your children, you don’t owe it to civilization in general. Prettiness is not a rent you pay for occupying a space marked “female.”
    ~Diana Vreeland

    And i love this quote because this rejects the objectification of women. There's so much more to being a woman than aesthetics. It might be great to be pretty, but a woman doesn't owe it to anyone, and true beauty comes in more ways than one.

  9. Hello Carli!
    First off I wanna say I love you ! You have been such an inspiration. I have truly found my love for make up and fashion because of you.

    I'm not too sure if you got my post but my favorite quote is ” Live for today, dream for tomorrow, forget about yesturday. ” I love this quote because it has gotten me through life so far. I first found this quote after losing my first baby . I was going through a hard time but after reading this quote I decided I needed to live my life in memory of my angel baby. I want to go back to cosmetology school and would love to become as talented as you are .
    Happy holidays !

  10. “There are many things in life that will catch your eye; but only a few will catch your heart, pursue them.”

    Thank you for this Holiday giveaway!! There is something so inspiring about how big your heart is and I truly believe you will be blessed beyond measure. Love your videos and your quotes. And if Bret is helping you pick the winners, tell him I am a Chiefs fan, HA.

  11. Hi carli, my second favourite quote is by
    Rob Hill. He said ” my goal is to build a life i don't need a vacation from.” This inspired me very much. It remembers me that i want more. It remembers me everyday to work hard. It motivates me. It says, nothing is impossible.

    Good luck everybody who'd love to win the giveaway❤

  12. Hello Carli! I am unable to post on the comment page link you provided above, but noticed everyone else was posting here. My favorite quote is “When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.” -Lao Tzu. This quote always reminds me to let go of control issues and those thoughts of having to be a certain way to “fit in”. Always be yourself and people who want to be in your life will stay in it! Love all your posts and tutorials and thank you for the opportunity to win this giveaway!

  13. Hi Carli! I dont think my last post went though 🙁 Anyhoo…ONE of my favorite quotes is my James Dean (I have so many)
    “Remember:
    Life is short, break the rules (they were made to be broken)
    Forgive quickly, kiss slowly
    Love truly, laugh uncontrollably
    And never regret anything that makes you smile.
    The clouds are lined with silver and the glass is half full (though the answers won't be found at the bottom)
    Don't sweat the small stuff,
    You are who you are meant to be,
    Dance as if no one's watching,
    Love as if it's all you know,
    Dream as if you'll live forever,
    Live as if you'll die today”
    I love this quote because I feel like everyone is often too hard on themselves and we end up missing out on the wonderful things that surround us and are currently in our lives. We over complicate things, stress ourselves out and are our own worst enemies at times. I try to live by this every day. You only have one life, might as well have some fun and spread love and positivity while you're here 🙂

  14. It always seems impossible until its done”, this is my favourite quote because all tasks that may occur in our lives whether it is in school ,work or even in our personal lives may seem impossible to overcome at first but once we do the work or go the hardships then we realise how easy it was to overcome it

  15. “Before you criticise someone, walk a mile in their shoes. That way you will be a mile away from them and have their shoes. I like this quote because it is quite funny and encourages you to not criticise people without knowing what they are going through. It is also pretty accurate. 😉 xxx

  16. You may be in a tough time but that aetback is simply a setup for a greater come back. This is one of my fafavorite quotes because it is very relateable to my cirrent situation. I know that onw day everything will fall into place the way it should be and everything will be better!:)

  17. It won't let me write on the post for your giveaway so don't know whether this will even count but I'll try anyways.
    I think it's so sweet doing these giveaways! You are continuously giving me inspiration on inner and outer beauty.
    I have a few favourite quotes but the one I really do love is 'everyone is fighting a battle you know nothing about, be kind, always' I think it's just so truthful and makes a point to everyone and reminds everyone that kindness is super important!

  18. Everything you can imagine is real by Pablo Picasso.
    I love this quote because it inspires me to be creative and to believe in my abilities to create my life as I want.
    Thank you for this give away! :-*

  19. “Never stop believing in hope because miracles happen everyday” this is one of favourite quotes because in recent months it's proven to be true.I don't want to go into too much, but I've found myself in a situation over the years whereby I've been torn between those I love and found it difficult to deal with things.When I finally spoke to my family their response was beyond anything I could have prayed for and for me it was a miracle, one which I'm beyond grateful for.

  20. “Love your parents.we are so busy growing up, we often forget they are also growing old” I'm a firm believer that parents do much for their children throughout their lives that as children the very least we can do is bring ease to them as they grow older. If it's physically they need help we should do so not send them to care homes, they didn't do that to us as babies. To have patience with them as they've had with us. To respect them, just because we've grown older doesn't mean we know better, their experience is beyond us and above all love your elders, life can be short, each moment is to be cherished.truth is we will never be able to repay our parents v no matter how hard we try. (I've only tried to enter twice, so if there's been more than two entries it wouldn't be with different quotes it may just be because I've been doing this via my phone and it's not been accepting it several times)

  21. Hiii carli i hope u fine and happy new year!!! one of my favorite quote is ''Whatever you decide make sure it makes you happy''.. I like this quote because many times we make dediciones to compleces other and we forget what we want and what makes us happy thas why we must consider what makes us happy to live better and be better every day so we can help others. Life is about living the best you can to give love and smiles every day; remember life is to short to waste on envy and bitterness and we must live every minute to be happy and grateful so when you take any decision make sure that is for your best and it makes u happy!!!! thank u carli this was my 2 entries!!!!

  22. One of my favourite quotes is:

    Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve. –Napoleon Hill

    In high school, we had a number of inspirational quotes framed and hung in the corridors and this quote was one of them. This particular quote stuck with me in life, and especially helps me get through my finals every year 🙂

    Thanks for this giveaway Carli !!You have such a big heart and that's one of the things I love about you :):)

    Wishing you and Brett a very happy Christmas!! xxxx

  23. Hey Carli, so excited for this giveaway! My favorite quote is: “I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.” …its such a straight forward quote. And it simply states how I personally try and go by my everyday life, which I believe is so important in order to be productive & happy.
    I LOVE YOU!

  24. Second post:
    Carli you are absolutely the best for doing these giveaways! I watch you videos all the time! Love them! They have inspired me to start wearing make-up again since I kinda stop after having my daughter about 2 years ago. So thank you! One of my favorite quotes is:
    “I love you not because of who you are, but because of who I am when I am with you.” I relate to this quote so much because it's exactly how my boyfriend makes me feel. I feel like I'm my true self when I'm with him. Just genuinely happy all the time. I can be silly, walk around looking a mess and he still makes me feel like a queen. I don't think my life would be the same without him.

  25. Hi Carlie!
    This is my second quote : “Your time is limited so don't waste it living someone else's life- Steve Jobs” This is my one of the favorite quotes because I realized the focus of my life should be “I” and not others, as we have very limited time on the earth. This motivates me to improve myself everyday into a better person.

  26. My fave quote would have to to be “Do your squats. Eat your vegetables. Wear red lipstick. Dont let boys be mean to you.” I love it because I think it is cute and good to remember!

  27. Other of my Favorite quotes it's from Pablo Neruda

    “If nothing saves us from death, at least love should save us from life”

    Death is the only thing we are going to experience for sure, but while we're living we should feel the joy and not worry about death, nor money and all those things that are good for everything as long as we have them… but when it comes to love, you may not be with the persone you love or the one who loves u right now, but love moves mountains and make our hearts warmer and draw smiles in our faces, love makes us cry, love make us try and accomplish what we never thought we were capable of, so I think the only way for us to live is to love, love ourselves and love to the others, our parents, sisters and brothers, girlfriend or boyfriend, even your pet, love to the earth… no matter what it is, we all love something and it's because it's in our nature.

    So this is a really nice quote if you give yourself some time to think very deeply about it, even if you don't just by reading it you already know what it meants.

    Happy NYE Carli, for Brett too.

    As I posted on your giveaway video I'm not able to post in here with the account I use for YT and pretty much for everything… G+ made me two accounts in one and for some reason this is the principal one..

    Love, Skyroline.

  28. my favorite quote is ” everyone wants love & to be loved.” I love this quote because it's short, sweet & very true in all situations. I have been following you on youtube & instagram for a while now and not only are you beautiful but I love the message you give out. in one of the videos you said you wanted to do these videos because you wanted people to feel good not only on the outside but on the inside too. I'm gay & doing my hair & make up make me feel good about myself. I've been bullied & people have always tried to hurt me mentally & physically since I can remember. a lot of the times it worked & I would feel horrible about myself. my mother is disabled & my younger brother is autistic & I'm the one that takes care of them but after watching your videos & seeing the quotes you put in them it changed the way I look at myself & other things in the world. I would love to win, it would be amazing. but even if I don't I want you to know that your a huge inspiration to me & have helped me more than you know & I can't tell you how much I appreciate it. your amazing, don't ever let anyone tell you different. ♡ Nicky J

  30. “Laughter is timeless, imagination has no age, and dreams are forever” – Walt Disney, this is my favorite quote because it reminds me to live each day just full of joy, happiness, and to never give up on my goals and dreams 🙂

  31. Hi my beautiful ♡
    This is also a very good quote:
    Do Not Gain The World And Lose Your Soul Wisdom Is Better Than Silver And Gold. ~ Bob Marley

    I think this is a great quote because god have us wisdom and what god gives us is the best we can ever have. We dont meed money or gold..
    Thank you for this HUGE giveawaaay ♡

  32. Hi hi cute little Pinguin 🙂 <3

    So after I looked at all again I choosed my two favourite quotes 🙂 but Carli, every single one is so beautiful and I really appreciate you for them in every single one of your Videos!
    So the first one is def “The most important thing in life is your Family. There are days you love them, and others you don't. But, in the End, they're the people you, always come home to. Sometimes It's the family you're born into and sometimes It's the one you make for yourself.”
    I mean this is just true, the family is the most important thing in life, they always are there for you in good and bad days! Who always stand by your side and where the word family comes to love. Hope you know what I mean 🙂
    Really hope I have a Chance to win the first time something from you, it really would mean sooo much <3 <3
    And Carli, please keep it up, you are such an amazing little Pinguin and I learned so much from you all the Years!!! <3 you are an Inspiration for all of us! And just so lovely and perfect Inside and out!
    so much Love, xx <3

  33. Be who you want to be, not what others want to see .
    Is one of my favourite quotes because it just mindes you to be yourself and to not really care what others say 🙂

  34. This is my second entry for this amazing giveaway. Another one of my favourite quotes is:
    ‘Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Willing is not enough; we must do.’ This is more of a practical quote which can be applied to everyday life. For example: when we gain knowledge from things, we should apply it into the practical world in order to help others and make the knowledge useful (kinda like what you do with your make up skills). It helped me remind myself that supporting others with your own skills is important:)

    Love your work!! And thank you for this awesome give away xx

  35. One of my favorite quotes is actually from you. It's from your 'Draw My Life' video if I'm not mistaken. You said “Life is worth the fight.”
    I love it because what you said was true. I've been through a lot the past couple of years and watching your video made me realize that if you fight for something that you love, something good will come out of it. I learned that from you. Thank you for being such an inspiration and role model for all of us. And please keep doing that. Thank you so much Carli, and I love you <3

  36. the things you take for granted someone else is praying for:) it help me to remind that always i have to say thank you for what i have :)xoxo

  37. Hi Carly!!!
    Love what you do and your inspiration! One of my favorite quotes lately has been “Believe you can and you're halfway there.” I love this quote because you have to believe in yourself to achieve any goals in life. It's the first big step because if you keep believing no obstacle big or small will be able to stand in your way as long as you stay positive.
    Love you! XOXO
    – Kitty

  38. “BE THE CHANGE YOU WISH TO SEE” This is my favorite quote because it is very true. I am a senior in high school in Chicago. Chicago has a lot of violence especially with the youth. I worked as an intern at the Mikva Challenge and we focused our topic around youth incarceration. I was very passionate about this topic because I was affected by it. I had personal problems as well. Its amazing what a young group of teenagers from one of the most diverse cities in the country can do. We created policies on how we can help lessen the youth incarceration. We met with the Cook county executive board director ad pitched to her our ideas on what we had planned. She loved them. I wanted to make a difference in my community because youth are being targeted for harmless things, such as being out at an odd hour. I was stopped by police with a group of friends around 8p.m. on a week day. We had just hosted out schools annual haunted house but they thought other. Its pretty insane what police officers are capable on doing. I wanted to see change and give youth a chance to show we are not all the same. I did that, I helped get students more involved with the school with sports or extra curricular activities to keep them off the streets. I wanted to see change and make my community better, and that is exactly what I am doing. Thank you for taking time to read my explanation and thank you for such an amazing give away. Best Wishes. -Nicole Balling-Tellez

    *second entry* HAPPY NEW YEARS! HERES TO ANOTHER AMAZING YEAR!

  39. “Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colours seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.”
    ― Bob Marley

    I've always loved this quote because I feel like when someone finds their soulmate or person out there this is what they should strive for, having someone in their life that they can share the world with.

  40. ” the only way to be best you is to break through your fears because that's your brick wall, your comfort zone” I love this quote because it teaches me to not let anything hold me back! It teaches me to get out of my comfort zone which will allow me to grow as a person. I also like this quote because when I was younger I was bullied and people always told me I couldn't do the things they did. But reading this quote it made me realize I shouldn't allow people to put negative thoughts into my head. I should be the way to make the decisions for myself and this quote allowed me to realize that
