Clean Beauty Consulting
Ok, so I've taken the plunge into the world of beauty - one of my favorite topics since I was 5 years old. I literally remember the smell of my mom's kaboodle from my childhood, it was my favorite smell in the world. I used to love trying on her lipsticks and blushes and doing photoshoots with my sister at home. I've been told "you don't need to dress up" so many times when I go out with makeup, there aren't enough fingers and toes in the world to count it all.
I've worn makeup for a long time, and my time in showbiz meant more makeup, more hairspray, and more toxins and chemicals that I probably inhaled and ingested waaay to much of. About that time, the public started hearing more and more about US beauty standards, and how their ingredients included lots of toxins. Jessica Alba even started her own company of cleaner products based on these facts. Now, charging ahead is a company called BeautyCounter. They advocate for better beauty standards (like, literally, on Capitol Hill), they use the cleanest ingredients possible, their packaging is gorgeous, and best of all - this stuff works!
My friend Elizabeth approached me about the products after having Oscar. I tried out the baby oil and a couple of facial products. Both Oscar and I have very sensitive skin, eczema on our face and bodies, so I was hesitant at first. But, I tried it out and loved it, now I'm hooked! There are a few times out of the year where my husband, Chris and I live apart -- so I can fulfill some performing contracts in New Orleans, while he works out of state. We were apart for about a month at one point, and when he came to see me, he said, "OMG Why is your skin so glowing? Is this because you haven't seen me in a month?!" I laughed, "no, it's my new skincare." And I thought, geez, this must really work if Chris notices a difference! True story.
I've continued using their products now for a little over a year, and have decided to jump into consulting. It's a great way for me to work from home, but still connect with people. I feel better about what is going on not only my skin, but Oscar's (snuggles = makeup / lipstick traces on the bebe!), I can get my skincare and makeup delivered to me, eliminating extra trips to the drug store or department store, and I plan on doing some events where the proceeds from my sales will go to non profit organizations that tie in with my Brand, like Global Genes, for example.

I hope you enjoy their products and mission as much as I do!
