Makeup and Motherhood with Lauren Vena | CNC67

Makeup and glamour is Lauren Vena’s business. As a celebrity makeup artist, business owner, and mother of two, Lauren came to a realization that her children see past the makeup when they look at her. Her latest book, My Mom…The Best Mom Ever, dives deep into the beauty that children see in their mother. From frozen chicken nuggets to surviving health crises, the love that kids have is beyond measure! She has turned her makeup career into a love project where she helps other moms, nominated by their loved ones, by heading the Mommy Makeover Campaign. Love between a mom and her kids is unconditional regardless of your lipstick color.

About the Guest:

Lauren Vena, a celebrity makeup artist, children’s author and mompreneur, is on a mission to remind moms no matter how crazy life is, your kids love you more than ever and to them, you’re perfect in every way! Lauren’s latest read, “My Mom… The Best Mom Ever!”, places emphasis on unconditional love and reminds moms that perfection doesn’t exist.

Lauren has been a professional makeup artist for over 20 years and is the owner of LV Makeup Artist. Most recently, she launched her own LV makeup brush line and signature LV blenders. When she’s not launching makeup tools or hanging with her two little ones at home, you can find her working on set as the in-house cover and feature makeup artist for Bella Magazine. Lauren emphasizes confidence and self-love through her makeovers and spends time on the east and west coasts teaching others how to apply makeup and prioritize selfcare.

BOOK: My Mom…The Best Mom Ever

About the Host:

Following the crumbs in the chaos is a full time job. As a busy mom of three, a wife to a traveling hubby, and keeping it weird in Austin, Texas, it’s safe to say that my life is never boring. In addition to running my coaching business as C’N’C’s CEO, I’m a certified coach for a premier virtual fitness and nutrition program helping others feel better while sustaining a healthy lifestyle. My mom and dad are thrilled that I’m putting my Exercise Science degree to good use. Along with my experience training pro athletes, S.W.A.T. members, and a high school football team, I gained 10+ years experience as the Director of Marketing building multiple court reporting companies. Lastly, I am a published writer, Content Coordinator, and Account Executive for a publication by Best Version Media. They even gave me a monthly “How to” column where I teach others how to be more self-sufficient with common household tasks. Every woman should know how their home functions and what to do if something malfunctions, man or no man. With my husband on the road, searching “How To” on the internet has transformed me into a “Mommy MacGyver”. “I don’t know how you have the time.” “You’re like a Supermom!” These are common things that people say, but the truth is that life hasn’t always been easy or pretty. Even with the bumps, I always try to find the humor in everything because laughter is good for the soul and you should never take life too seriously….where’s the fun in that?
