Luckily for you, there happen to be an extraordinary group of ladies with the answers you've been looking for - the Got Beauty Pros!

We asked 25 Got Beauty Girls (affectionately known as GBGs) about their absolute favorite beauty product, and why it works so well for them. Take a peek at what they have to say - you might find your perfect product.

A few Got Beauty Girls have taken the liberty of sharing their worst beauty mistakes so YOU don't have to make them. We promise, some of these are going to make you feel a whole lot better.
I'm not a huge fan of talking about the fact that I get acne. Most of us who experience it prefer to just ignore its very existence with hopes it may go unnoticed, or that it might disappear.

This week, we're going to shift our focus to one of our very own real world beauties: the staggeringly gorgeous Chanté. Chanté suffers from an anxiety disorder shared by as many as 4% of the population called Trichotillomania that causes a person to compulsively pull out their own hair. Although she has found ways to successfully manage and minimize her anxiety on a daily basis, due to years of plucking, Chanté's lashes and brows stopped growing in. That is, until she discovered two pretty amazing products: Revitabrow and Revitalash. Many sufferers of this disorder are afraid to speak up about what they are experiencing out of confusion or fear of judgment or rejection. Because of this, Chanté decided to share her story with hopes that she might be able to help someone who may be struggling.
