Got It From My Mama

The best beauty advice doesn’t come from a blog or magazine. In my family, it was passed down from generations of strong, beautiful, happy women. So in celebration of Mother’s Day, here are the top 4 beauty tips from the OG PJA: my mom.

DON’T TOUCH YOUR EYEBROWS Mother knew best: bold brows are timeless. Trim lightly or pluck some strays; but if you need a little more maintenance, leave it to a professional. I fill mine in with Glossier’s Boy Brow or Kat Von D’s 24-Hour Super Brow Long-Wear Pomade in Taupe for that Brooke Shields look.

STOP PICKING Your face, that is. With age I’ve found that the less I touch my face, the better my skin looks. Here’s a few of her other tried-and-true skin tips: exfoliate with a mild scrub once a week; wash that makeup off every night; moisturize and apply eye cream; and use sunscreen every day. So, yes mom. You were right. Happy?

HAVE FUN I love to play with makeup and I’m so lucky to have a mom that encouraged me to try new things. Put on a face mask, wing your eyeliner, try a new lipstick; you’ll only be out a few bucks and maybe you’ll gain a new favorite look.

PLAY WITH YOUR HAIR After every bad hair cut or home dye job, my mom would comfort me with this simple fact: hair grows. Don’t be afraid to try a new style or color; it’s just hair! The heavily Instagrammed Prism Airbrush Spray temporary color by Hush is a terrific option for folks curious about the rainbow hair trend. It’s formula doesn’t leave hair sticky or stiff making it all the more fun to layer and play with.
