Beauty means different things to different people.
To me, it is a combination of your outside appearance and your inside beauty shining through!
In fact, I really don’t think you can obtain true beauty if you don’t have a heart that is beautiful – full of love, hope, and compassion.
When people ask me who my biggest beauty and style icon is and who influenced my daily beauty routine the most, the answer is easy–– my mom.
While she’s always been an inspiration and source of strength, she also played a huge part in shaping my personal style.
She’s the one I would go shopping with, the one who first cut my hair and who always helped me embrace my own unique beauty, inside and out.
She is the one that made sure I knew that my outside appearance was not more important than my heart and how I treat others.
She would often say things like “you might look pretty on the outside, but if your heart is ugly it will shine through and be what others will notice most.”
Because of this, I have always made sure that my own daughter knows that her outward appearance is second to what is on the inside and how she treats others.
As mothers, we have the ability to impact our daughters more than anyone else.
It is our definition of beauty that they will see first hand and ultimately shape their own ideas of what true beauty is.
That’s why I love Dove’s latest campaign, Four Generations.
It’s always so amazing and inspiring to hear other women’s positive beauty stories.
So let’s hear it, who influenced your style the most growing up?
What kind of tips and tricks will you pass down through the generations?
