God loves you,'” she mentioned. “I instill that inside each of them in order that they know that they are stunning with or with out make-up, as a result of on the finish of the day, make-up continues to be enjoyable. I like enjoying in make-up and placing it on if I am going out sometimes, however I let my daughters know that make-up cannot ever outline you; it is to dramatize or improve the sweetness that is already there.”
