My Mom, the Beauty Icon

This Georgia mom's style philosophy was just like her: anything but boring.

Southern women can find beauty and fashion inspiration many places, but none compare to what a lady can learn from her mom, sisters, and grandmothers. Whether you pick up your mom’s habit of wearing lipstick everywhere, even to the grocery store, or you use the same perfume as your sister, there is sure to be a trace of the women in your family in your daily beauty routine. Rachel Sewell shares the beauty products that her mom, Mary Brooks Sewell, used to get ready for the day, and what she and her sister learned about Southern beauty from watching their mom get ready while they were growing up.
