Today is International Women’s Day, and nothing makes us happier than recognizing strong, powerful women!

First celebrated in parts of Europe in 1911, International Women’s Day is about making a difference by thinking both locally and globally. It helps to ensure a bigger, brighter, and balanced future for all women.

Our founder Lisa paved her own future and began the company after years of digging through her mother’s makeup drawers. Using beauty products as a way of emotional expression through her life’s highs and lows, she decided to create a place that would allow her to share that passion with a wide range of dynamic and gorgeous women.

The name became a call to action. First, from the action of “being”— “Be the best you can be”, “be you”, “be truthful”, “just be!” Secondly, "glowing" came from reflecting the radiance we all deserve to have inside and out! Keeping with her original passion, Lisa decided to curate brands that operate with an independent spirit, those with an honest passion which reach out to the consumer.

To read Lisa’s full story, go here!

In honor of strong women everywhere, empower yourself with the words of those who’ve paved the way. We’ve created Pinterest pins, so that when you pin these inspirational quotes to your Pinterest board, you’ll share the message that together, women are unstoppable.

Happy International Women’s Day, ladies!

Oscar Weekend: Travel Day » -

Saturday we fly to LA.  For flights I love to be casual, super comfy and of course a little stylish. 

My J Crew leggings are a must for me when flying.  I also make sure I wear shoes I can easily slip on and off like these super cute ballet shoes.  I’m not a big fan of wearing makeup while I’m flying.  The air is so dry that it just leaves my skin and eyes feeling dehydrated and itchy.  I prefer to not wear mascara or any makeup for that matter. That being said, I still like to try and look my best. 

One of the easiest ways to make myself look more “finished” in a natural way is with It Cosmetics Bye Bye Redness.  I have a ton of redness in my face and this instantly removes it!  It’s similar to a foundation, but much lighter and can actually be worn under a foundation.  To achieve a natural, hydrated glowy look I moisturize with my Erno Laszlo Hydraphel SPF 15 and finish with a bit of Bye Bye Redness.  I finish with some RMS Living Luminizer for a youthful radiance around my cheek bones, chin, forehead, the inner corner of my eyes and the bridge of my nose.  This 3 step gives me the hydration, coverage and glow I love. 

Since the brow frames the face I don’t leave the house without my Anastasia Brow Wiz to define the shape of my brow and her amazing Dip Brow Pomade to fill in and cover any stray grays.  For my lips I smudge on a bit of the Original Rosebud Salve to hydrate and heal my lips.  This is a great item to keep in your purse for any kind of instant hydration whether it is for cuticles, elbows, lips and more. 

Last but not least my trip wouldn’t be complete without lots of water!  Once I’m passed security I fill up my bkr with water to stay hydrated through the flight – especially if I have a glass of wine on board! 

Sunday morning a T3 Stylist and Koh Gen Do makeup artist will be helping me get ready for Elton John’s Oscar party!  I’ll be sure to share with you all their tips and tricks to achieve my updated 1940’s look!

Xoxo
