You Can Call Me Red...
My lifelong affair with everything beautiful began in 1975 after sitting at my grandmother's vanity for the first time. Though off limits to my small hands, I found time to slip away from watchful eyes to discover its mystique within wallpaper-lined drawers and ornate glass bottles.
Surrounded by the essence of old-school glamour -- exotic perfumes, elegant combs, a gilded hand mirror, and creamy rouge -- I was completely enthralled by a concept I was too young to embrace, but keenly aware was sacred. These pivotal moments at such a tender age led me toward my passion, and path, as a licensed esthetician and cosmetics professional.
With age comes wisdom...
In an age where photoshop has set an illusive, unattainable standard, and perfection plastered on every magazine cover, it's easy for women to lose the connection with their personal esteem. My personal journey was nothing short of reconciliation with the one person who deserved it most; Me.
Innate beauty is definitive. Sadly, beauty is often learned or unlearned, as many of us tend to focus on our "flaws" rather than embrace our unique attributes.
Daring Young Red wants to re-introduce you to your most divine, most perfect "imperfect" self. My personal mission for every woman is to reconnect with her definitive and infinite beauty, and acknowledge how unrepeatable we all are.
So why Daring Young Red?
Named for the singular shade of scarlet lipstick I wore to my high school homecoming dance, Daring Young Red captures the essence of warrior womanhood,
and acknowledges the path we walk together to embrace our most authentic selves.
Be you. Be daring.
