Feel like the words “simple” and “beauty” can’t coexist in your life? Today’s episode is for you!
If you want to put your best face forward but feel overwhelmed by all the steps. Or you think it takes too long to take care of your skin or put on your face… Never fear, beautiful mamas, my friend and beauty expert Stacie Hamilton from The Makeup Obsessed Mom is here to help. Stacie shares her tips for simple morning and evening skincare as well as steps for easy, beautiful, natural-looking makeup. And she shares fantastic and fun gift ideas for the holidays.
Stacie lives in the Dallas-Ft. Worth area in Texas. She is a happily married mom of 3 adult children and she became a grandma for the first time last week! Stacie is a brand ambassador for “Oprah Magazine” and won the 2018 Inspiration Award with her picture and quotes featured in the magazine. She has also been featured in “Family Circle” and “Women’s Day” magazines.
STACIE’S BASIC SKINCARE ROUTINES
Remember, before starting any new skincare routine, make sure you know your skin type so the products will be effective. And don’t add too many new steps at one time. You want to make sure you can identify what product causes an adverse reaction, in case you have one.
STACIE’S HOLIDAY GIFT SUGGESTIONS
The holidays are a great time to splurge on special items that make us feel good. And I love the idea of skincare and makeup as gifts because they are consumable…and therefore clutter-free.
