Series | Feature Friday!

Here's another installment of Feature Friday and today we have the beautiful, Kelly from KBellaBeauty and she creates some of the most gorgeous eye looks I've ever seen!

A little blurb about me... Well I'm a 29 year old who is passionate about beauty, animals, and kids.  I'm a Christian, a wife, and a dog mom.  I love to travel and spend time with my nieces/nephews.  I also love to read and volunteer my time.  I have work with some animal rescue volunteers as well as working in the children's ministry at my church.  I am originally from the Metro Detroit area in Michigan, but I've been in Houston, TX for about 6 years now.  My favorite thing about the YouTube/beauty community is definitely the friendships I've made!  I love how makeup and fashion can bring people together :).

p&b-when did you get into beauty and makeup?
For as long as I can remember I've loved makeup.  As a little girl, I used to play in my moms makeup and walk around the house.  I was probably 4-5 years old and she would let me put a little shadow and lipstick on, but I would have to wash it off shortly after.  Once I was a teenager it turned into borrowing my older sisters makeup.  I actually sold Mary Kay for a while in my early 20s.  It was about 3-4 years ago that I started watching YouTube and getting into different brands of makeup.
p&b-what made you start a youtube channel?
I took theater in high school and I've always loved being on camera.  I also really like sharing my opinion with others.  It was just a natural progression for me I guess.  After watching YouTube videos for a couple years, I started getting the idea in my head that, "Hey, I can do that!"  After a push from my husband, I finally took the plunge.
p&b-favorite youtuber/influencer?
I would have to say Desi Perkins!  I love several YouTubers, but she's my favorite!
p&b-must have beauty product?
I would have to say my Anastasia Beverly Hills brow definer and brow wiz.  Who would have guessed how important brows would be?!
p&b-what's a beauty product you regret purchasing? or a trend you wish you didn't try?
I usually end up returning the beauty products that I'm not satisfied with.  However, I never did return the Maybelline Dream Velvet Matte foundation or the L'Oreal True Match Lumi Cushion foundation and I regret both of those.
p&b-finish this sentence: my style is closest to _________
I was trying to think of someone to insert here, but no one is coming to mind.  I have a very natural, girl next door style.  I'm pretty much a jeans and tshirt kind of girl!
p&b-if you could swap lives with anyone for one day, who would it be and why?
I would totally want to swap with the Queen of England or Princess Kate.  My husband and I are very into history and traveling.  We love Europe!  We recently started watching the tv shows "Versailles" and "The Crown" and I would love to know what it was like to be in the monarchy!
p&b-what's your go to girls' night look like?
I'm a sucker for a rose gold eye with a wing.  Or a rose gold halo eye.
p&b-fave tv show?
This is so hard!  I have so many favorites.  Most recently, the show "Versailles", but that's because my husband and I were just there this summer.  I love the typical shows like Scandal, How To Get Away With Murder, Madam Secretary, and The Real Housewives of anything!
p&b-if you were only allowed to bring 3 products with you on a week long trip, what would you bring?
My ABH brow wiz, Maybelline The Rocket Mascara, and my Kylie Cosmetics liquid lipstick in Candy K.
p&b-go to everyday makeup look?
Usually a very basic eye, a rosey nude blush on top of a contour and topped with highlight, and a mauve lip shade.
p&b-best advice you've ever received?
This one is tough... I don't have any words of wisdom swirling in my head that I replay from time to time.  If I have to think of some advice that I would want to share it would be simple... just be you!  As Dr. Seuss said, "Today you are you, that is truer than true.  There is no one alive that is Youer than You."  I think we should be celebrating our uniqueness and our own individual qualities.  After all, there is only one "you"!
p&b-if you could collab with any beauty product or celebrity, who would it be and what would it be?
I would love to collab with a company to create some lip shades.  I'm a huge lippie fanatic.  I could totally work with Dose of Colors, Ofra, or Mac!
p&b-looking forward to 2017, what's next for you?
Traveling with my husband!  We have really enjoyed traveling and we want to get as much traveling in as we can before we start a family.

Catch up with Kelly and show her some love!
