Real World Beauty: 5 Women. Real Advice

naturally beautiful

Beauty has as many forms as there are personalities and seasons in a woman's life. This month we are feeling inspired, not so much by what a particular culture or trend labels as beautiful, but by what makes a woman feel beautiful as an individual in the real world. We're starting with our own diverse group of GBG's (Got Beauty Girls) who come to us from a range of ages, life situations and backgrounds. 

After years in the beauty industry, experimenting with all the latest trends and products (for better or worse), they each have their own unique stories as well as tons of pretty useful advice! Please join us in the coming months as we open a conversation about what makes YOU feel beautiful, and how each one of us has personally overcome our own beauty hang-ups, both large and small, to arrive at something that is uniquely, magnificently our own.
