I’m An Almay Spokesperson! Win A Trip To NYC With Makeovers For Two

Mina Slater with Lady Bee

Almay has been highlighting women’s beauty for uber decades! I use it, my mother uses it and my Nana used it too! This is why I was so honored when Dino Dogan, founder of Triberr, emailed me to become a spokesperson for Almay! I’ll be sharing the latest Almay news and more! I’m so excited. So much has changed with beauty trends over time, but one consistent thing through 3 generations in my family is that the love of Almay has never faded!

The gorgeous Kate Hudson & her beautiful mother Goldie Hawn, 2 awesome actresses I love!

As a super girly teacup human who loved dressing up and being a little diva, I really admired my mother. To me she was the smartest, most beautiful, superhero mommy. Yes, I thought my mom was a superhero…and she was! I would play dress up with her clothes as she got dolled up. I wasn’t allowed into the makeup stash so I’d sit quietly in awe, watching her put on her makeup. I’d see her eyeballing me though the mirror and let out a little a giggle. One time I sneaked into her makeup when she was at my grandmother’s house. For the love of blush and lipgloss, I made a huge mess and had cake face! Of course my mother walked in right on time to catch me in the act! Can you believe she didn’t get mad? She laughed, hard! She cleaned me up and in the sweetest way only a mom could, she said “Less is more babygirl” and put a touch of makeup on me for the day. A bit of pink lipstick on my lips and a dab of the same on my cheeks, blended out as blush was all she used.  That’s how I learned there was more than one use for lipstick! I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup until my teens, but that day was a treat and I was a barbie princess! Kind of funny how now, as a beauty blogger, I’m the one giving my mother makeup tips. 😉

    Congrats. What a great opp. Too bad my mom is no longer with me and my daughter is still too young for a perk like this. I'll share it though.
