My lifelong love affair with cosmetics began in 1975 after sitting at my grandmother's vanity for the first time. Surrounded by the essence of old-school glamour -- exotic smelling perfumes, elegant combs, a gilded hand mirror, and creamy rouge -- I was completely enthralled.
Although I was only a child I knew her vanity represented a much larger concept than I was able to understand at such a tender age.
Beauty is not meant to be learned, it should be innate.
Each one of us is born beautiful, perfect in the eyes of those who love us, but somewhere along the way too many of us learn to bring attention to our flaws rather than embrace them. In an age where photoshop has become an illusive standard, and perfection is plastered on every magazine cover it's easy to lose the connection with your personal esteem.
Daring Young Red wants to re-introduce you to your most perfect "imperfect" self. My personal mission is for every woman to reconnect and identify with her own unique beauty and understand just how unrepeatable each and every one of us truly is.
I want you to love your face. Makeup and good skin care are effective methods to feel beautiful,
but the real catalyst to self-empowerment is believing it. From makeovers to professional airbrushing, medical-grade facial treatments to body therapies,
my goal is to merge rejuvenation of the skin with the revival of the soul.
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 womanhood,
and the path we walk together to embrace our most authentic selves.
