Passing Down the Beauty

The beauty mistake she hopes her daughter never makes: "She's very beautiful. I'm afraid she'll get caught up in her physical beauty and forget what real beauty is."
And real beauty is? "It has nothing to do with makeup. A really beautiful woman takes good care of herself, of her body, and radiates a strong, happy heart."
The one thing she doesn't want to pass along to her daughter: "My insecurity about my weight. I'm trying to model good eating habits. I don't keep junk food around."
Her best advice: "You have a lifetime to experiment with makeup, so don't start too young. Wearing way too much makeup will make you look much older than you are. Don't try too hard to look sexy, too young. Also, please don't pluck your eyebrows. I'm a makeup artist. Let me do it."
