Guru Spotlight: Makemeblush02
01 January 2015
Beauty is more than skin deep to Caroline (makemeblush02) - it’s beyond the lotions and potions. When she described why Audrey Hepburn inspired her, she mentioned that Hepburn was a “strong female figure, not just a pretty face.” We love it when gurus go deep in their appreciation of beauty and understand it holistically! It was in elementary school when Caroline first stepped into the world of beauty and became enchanted by makeup. She remembers discovering her mom’s beauty bag, exploring the treasures inside and dolling up her friends.
We also love the strength that Caroline shows even when she's feeling down. We’ve all felt unmotivated at times, and Caroline gives us inspiration to keep it moving forward. Check out Caroline’s IWTL interview and videos to hear her thoughts on beauty and how she has gotten through tough times.

If you’re up for sharing one of your hardest moments for the pastyear, could you tell us how you got through it?
I went through a really rough year and a half that was very teen angst but serious. Sometimes life throws you for the worst kind of loops and its hard to balance other things within the loop. I had to ground myself with great friends and find a little happiness in every little thing I did. I think its okay to be sad sometimes but you always have to get yourself back up and realize life isn’t over and realize everything will be okay... eventually.
