I have really been loving seeing posts on FB and Instagram with women supporting other women. It should be the norm and not something that we are surprised by, but society had us all competing with each other for a really long time. Finally, women have decided enough is enough and are collaborating and raising each other up.
This here is my favorite picture of us women supporting each other. I am 3 weeks postpartum and my friend asked for makeup tips for an event she has coming up. It would have been easy for me to say “sorry, i cannot”, but I knew it was important and I LOVE being helpful so I said, “yes”. I was so honored that she asked for my assistance and that she understood my kiddos would be around when she came over for help.
While I helped her and showed her how to do a glam look, she held my daughter and helped her stay asleep. **Not seen here are our other two daughters (her’s was entertaining my toddler with coloring books).** I had tried to get the baby to sleep on her own, but she had other plans. It was great that my friend understood the only way to get help was to help me out with the girls. This is how supportive we are of each other! We raise each other up, turn to each other when we know the other is stronger in a certain area than we are.
I explained each step, showed her how it looked, and she took notes on her phone. I was able to make the steps easy enough for her to recreate at the events she had coming up. There is no shame in needing and wanting help and us women should be empowering each other and supporting each other in any way we can. Work at home, stay at home and working moms all need to take a minute and appreciate the work that each is doing to support their family. Community over competition raises us all up!
Here is her final look. I love how it simply enhances her natural beauty. This look also made her eyes really POP! Now she is ready to recreate this look and look gorgeous for every event she has!
