You always hear the stories of little girls playing dress up in mommy’s closet: stepping into her heels, climbing into her prettiest dresses, drowning ourselves in her longest pearls. It’s truly organic to want to look and feel as beautiful as our moms when we watched them get ready every morning. As for me though, I took the game of dress-up to a new level by scouring through mom’s makeup bag as often as I could.(Sorry Mom! :))
Of course there were the staples: a red lipstick, mascara, eyeshadow, and then there were the products whose purpose I couldn’t quite understand (foundation? Bronzer? What’s that?) I wish I knew then that these products would become staples in my every day life. (Perhaps I could’ve started saving for my beauty habits back then? Lol.)
Growing up, I admired my mother for very many reasons. One thing you simply could not ignore, though, was her beauty.
Paying homage to the women we adore, admire, and love, we present to you Thirteenth&Hudson’s beauty secrets from our moms. Happy Mother’s Day to you all!
