Meg here! Bringing you Miss Brooke Boles, the creator of Hot Pants Cosmetics! We have her Eyeliner Set below up for review but I thought it would be interesting to get to know this amazing lady! Enjoy! Thanks for sharing with us Brooke!
My name is: BROOKE BOLES..MY MAIDEN NAME..FOR WORK..BUT I AM MARRIED AND ANYTHING PERTAINING TO MY FAMILY OR BABY AVA IT IS BROOKE BOLES-SWARTMAN..MOST PEOPLE CAN’T SPELL IT OR PRONOUNCE IT SO NOW YOU KNOW WHY I STICK WITH BROOKE BOLES
I am the owner and creator of : HOT PANTS COSMETICS
I began my adult life: I WAS ONLY 20 WHEN I GRADUATED FROM PEPPERDINE WITH A BA IN COMMUNICATIONS AND I WAS MODELING AND ACTING, SO THE IDEA OF STARTING A COMPANY GAVE ME SOMETHING TO BUILD FOR THE FUTURE. I STARTED A FASHION ACCESSORY LINE OF FASHIONABLE BANDAGES CALLED BOO-BOOS DURING MY SENIOR YEAR OF COLLEGE, WHICH SOLD IN HUNDREDS OF STORES IN THE US AND CANADA INCLUDING NORDSTROM, KIDS R US, CLAIRE’S ETC. AFTER THAT,I KNEW INEEDED TO BRING MY VISION OF FASHION INSPIRED MAKEUP TO WOMEN EVERYWHERE WHO LIKED TO BE BOLD AND EXPIRIMENT WITH COLOR. THEN IN 2003, I CREATED HOT PANTS…
I want all women to know: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BEING TOO OLD TO WEAR BRIGHT COLORS, SHIMMER, GLOSS, SPARKLES, LOW CUT TOPS, HIGH SKIRTS, AND TOO HIGH OF HEELS..IT’S ALL ABOUT HOW IT IS WORN MAKING SURE TO HAVE BALANCE AND BE CONFIDANT IN THE CHOICE.
It is my sincere goal to bring each user of my products: FASHIONABLE FUN THAT’S JUST PLAIN SEXY.Needless to say I am a fan of all the products I have formulated over the years, but the one product that I urge all women to try is my: DEFINE-A-LINE EYELINER BASE THAT TURNS ALL EYESHADOW POWDERS INTO A LIQUID LINER AND IS THE BEST BONDING PRODUCT TO KEEP SPARKLES IN PLACE..YOUR EYELINER WILL NEVERSMEAR..TRULY A PROBLEM SOLVING BEAUTY MUST-HAVE! BUT I ALSO CAN’T LIVE WITHOUT MY LIP LUST GLOSS IN MAKIN OUT AND LUSH LIPS!
Style influences vary, but my personal style is: I HAVE 2 STYLES…AS A WORKING MOTHER OF AN 8 MONTH OLD BABY GIRL IN SOUTH FLORIDA WHERE IT IS MOSTLY WARM ALL YEAR ROUND, I AM CASUALLY DELICATE AND FEMININE WHICH I SPEND MOST OF THE TIME WEARING SOFT FLOWY DRESSES ABOVE THE KNEE WITH THE OCCASIONAL SPIT UP STAIN (lol!) PAIRED WITH PEDICURED FEET INSTRAPPY SANDALS WITH BRONZE AND GOLDEN EYES COLORS COMPLEMENTED WITH LIGHT CARMEL OR PINK ON THE LIPS. AFTER THE BABY GOES TO BED, MY HUBBY JEFF AND I HAVE DATE NIGHT AND HE APPRECIATES A WOMAN ALL GUSSIED UP..AND I LOVE GETTING ALL DOLLED UP IN SATIN DRESSES, MINI SKIRTS, AND PLATFORM HEELSPAIRED WITH SMOKEY EYES AND NUDE GLOSSY LIPS WITH BIG WAVY HAIR. I HAVEN’TWORN A PAIR OF JEANS SINCE I LEFT LOS ANGELES A LITTLE OVER 2 YEARS AGO.BABY AVA KEEPS ME HAVING FUN BECAUSE I CHANGE CLOTHES TWICE A DAY THANKS TO HER,…SO MY MAKEUP CHANGES THROUGH THE COURSE OF THE DAY AS WELL.
Creating these products have allowed me to feel: EMPOWERED YET HUMBLED WHEN PEOPLE TELL ME HOW MUCH THEY ENJOY OUR PRODUCTS. I ALSO FEEL GRATEFUL THAT I AM STILL PURSUING MY DREAMS AND NEVER REALLY WORK BECAUSE I LOVE WHAT I DO.I FEEL SO BLESSED THAT I CAN BALANCE MY PASSION WITH BEING A MOTHER. I amfortunate that I work mostly from home. I LOVE MY CAREER BUT I COULDN’T IMAGINE MISSING AVA’S first smiles, crawling, and adorable baby babble.
When I see women make this mistake I cringe: TOO MUCH BLUSH…IT REMINDS ME OF THE ROUGE MY GRANDMOTHER USED TO PUT ON. NOT SEXY!
My products care about the way you look like no one else’s because: WE KNOW YOU HAVE LOTS OF OPTIONS AND OUR PRODUCTS DELIVER ENDLESS COLOR COMBINATIONS AND INCREDIBLE TEXTURES THAT MAKE A STATEMENT YET THEY ARE WEARABLE AND HAVE YOU COVERED FOR HOURS. OUR PACKAGING IS CHIC AND FUNCTIONAL. OUR LIP LUST LIP GLOSS IS A CONVERSATION PIECE WITH THE LED LIGHT..TRY PUTTING IT AT ABAR..MEN AND WOMEN WILL NOTICE IT.
Lastly, if I were at a bar I would order: A POMEGRANATE MARTINI. BUT I AM USUALLY DISAPPOINTED AS THERE ARE SO MANY VARIATIONS..I RECENTLY FELL IN LOVE WITH THE ONE AT CARRABBAS’S..
If I had spinach between my teeth would you tell me? YOU MEG? Yes, of course. But if it was someone else, I would have to ask,WHAT CAN BE GAINED IN THE SITUATION? IF IT WAS SOMEONE WHO CAN MAKE ADECISION FOR YOU..YOUR BOSS, ONE OF MY COSMETIC BUYERS..THEN THE ANSWER IS NO BECAUSE YOU DON’T WANT TO EMBARRASS HIM/HER. BUT IF IT IS A FRIEND WHO WOULD BE HUMILIATED ,THEN OF COURSE I WOULD.
Thanks Brooke! Love the lady CEO! Much Love and Continued Success! You’ve got a lot of big fans over here at megsmakeup.com!
