Has my dear friend Nancy ever made me feel beautiful? Let me count the ways. Feeling beautiful, no matter how you feel when you walk in, is something to which she’s dedicated her life. A beautiful life, being challenged right now in inexplicable ways, but always deserving of a celebration. There’s something so vulnerable and defenseless about getting your makeup done (bad skin, stray hairs, coffee breath??) but she always made me happy I did. Coming in as you are and feeling better about yourself - down deep in your soul - when you leave is what she’s all about, whether that’s beautifying with brideface, wardrobing with Transform or just being an inspiring, cherished friend. This pic is a perfect example. It was a few years into knowing her, September 2013, and she had just launched a new lip color line. Pete was practically immobile from his RA pain, and I was in the thick of fertility treatments (the month of egg harvesting that led to Lola!) I was hot flashing from all the hormones, super emotional, and my skin was gross. Did I feel like a makeup session? No. Did I know I needed one with Nancy? Yes. Here she was was getting up close and personal with my hot sticky pores, making me laugh and feel human again with her hilarious stories. I, yet again, left her feeling prettier and happier than I had felt in months. Thank you, Nancy. For all the happiness, self-love and beauty you’ve brought into this world and all that will continue to flourish in your honor for generations to come. Love you, my friend. I promise to always care for my brows, loved ones and others in a way that will make you proud. ??
