I modeled for a really long time and eventually I really want just to create a company whether it be clothing or a beauty product. I have three girls and they love beauty and passion and they always have lip glosses. Lip gloss was actually one of the first beauty products I had. So, it was Bonne Bell or something like that and so I collaborated with my partner AJ and he's a makeup artist and we just felt like there was a whole in the market to create a luxury lip gloss. And so we sort of married a beauty and fashion and came up with kissable couture.
My first collection was called the first kiss collection and we had a lot of fun with that. We named it after some boys I know, one I kissed and one I married. So there's a floral shade which is my favorite. And we’ve got a lot of buzz and had a lot of fun with that then after that I kind of stopped going with the boys, but you know what, maybe who know-maybe we’ll start naming them after break ups.
You always need a great moisturizer. A great moisturizer is important and it's really important remember the neck. The neck is the first thing to go. You can do anything you want up here, but if you don’t take care of the neck, the neck is almost like a tree with the rungs. It kind of shows exactly how it is for real. So, I’m into moisture. I keep my body moist. I love creams and lotions. I think mascara is an important thing.
If you-pretty much if you have a gloss, a mascara and a moisturized face, you could pull it off. I’m addicted to the spray tan in the canopy of your legs because it gives you instant muscles. It even thought of like your skin tone and I've convinced myself I don’t have to work out because I can like spray on my calf legs now.
Some of the proudest moments of my life would be my three daughters. They're amazing. Autumn, Sonic and True, they're fun girls. I have a great time with them. We cook. We hang out. They have strong opinions, they love music. They help me not take myself so seriously.
I’m really proud of my husband, all the hard work he does and all the accomplishments. And as far as for me honestly, I’m really proud when I looked back and I look at my family and I see what a wonderful family I have and I feel like I must had something to do that. As far as kissable, I’m just so happy to be recognized and to get good reviews about having a great product, being in vogue, in bazaar and all those magazines. I think it's pretty awesome.
