Our Mission Statement
It’s simple. We want to recognize and empower beauty. We started LoveRealBeauty because we are sick and tired of how a false concept of “beauty” impacts the self-image and success of women. We know that beauty is not something that can be defined by Madison Avenue, Hollywood, or magic pixels. Beauty is not exclusively found at any location, place, or area. And, it is certainly not the exclusive domain of those women lucky enough to be born 5’10’’ tall with perfectly proportionate 120-pound frames and ultra-high cheek bones and unblemished skin.
Beauty is not a mold. Beauty is a flame that burns from the inside out and comes in many different colors, sizes, and looks.
We believe that true, genuine, and organic beauty – what we call “REAL BEAUTY,” is all around us. At LoveRealBeauty, we have made it our mission to recognize and empower real women to embrace what makes them uniquely amazing.
At LoveRealBeauty, we highlight the beautiful people we see around us each and every day. We talk to them about their self-care, including the makeup, cosmetics, and beauty products that they use, like, and want. You may not know it, but you are beautiful!
Why We Started LoveRealBeauty – From the Founders
We started LoveRealBeauty because we wanted to have a positive effect on the beauty, cosmetics, and makeup industry. We also did it for entirely selfish and parental reasons. We have young children, two of which are gorgeous young daughters. We never want those two beautiful human beings to ever have to question their own beauty. We don’t want them to have to think about beauty as a construct, as a measurement, as an unobtainable ideal. That is not real beauty.
Real beauty comes from within. That’s something that we feel should be a unifying concept.
We wanted our daughters to know that there is no such thing as “model perfect.” There is no prototypical human being. We wanted our lovely little girls to know that beauty is all around us, in so many shapes, forms, and ways. We wanted them to know that when beauty is recognized, it is empowered. Thus, with the help of some great and smart people, we have started LoveRealBeauty. We are on a mission to recognize and empower beauty!
