I went to live with my Obaasan (grandma) and Aunt when I was a little girl. I have to say I learned my love of skincare from my Obaasan and my passion for makeup from my Aunt. When I was little my Obaasan would let me use her moisturizer and it was a big deal for me. I always tell the story of how she told me not to forget my neck so when I was older I wouldn’t have a loose “chicken neck!” Proud to say that stuck and I always moisturizer my neck and not a sign in sight for chicken neck!
When no one was home I would sneak upstairs and play with my Aunt’s shoes and makeup, she was the first person to teach me how to do my eye makeup and introduce me to Manolo. Later she would take me to San Francisco to Neiman Marcus for a makeover when I did well in school or some random sporting event. When I decided to go to beauty school it was my Aunt who encouraged me and even paid for it. To this day they both encourage me in my skincare adventures and I am so grateful that they encouraged me to follow my dreams.
So here is to my Obaasan (grandma) and my Obasan (Aunt). Thank you and I love you!
