As both a mom of three and a marketing manager for resort hotels, Stephanie Cross is all about finding a makeup line that fits in with her busy life. With our travel-sized products, Stowaway seemed destined for this blogger’s suitcase and beauty routine. Read below for our conversation about beauty and blog life with Many Hats of a Mom!
What’s your daily go-to beauty routine?
As a full-time working mother of three, I’m usually putting on makeup in the morning while cradling a baby and keeping the peace between two toddlers. That said, my #1 go-to beauty routine consists of a great concealer and foundation, mascara, and lipstick. If I don’t get time to put anything else on, at least I’ll look somewhat normal with these products.
Who is your biggest beauty inspiration?
I love Lauren Conrad’s look. She always looks natural and her makeup isn’t too put on. Maybe I’m just in love with her hair. Her hair is kind of amazing.
How did you start your blog? What made you realize you wanted to blogging?
I started my blog in 2010 after my daughter was born. I wanted a little space on the internet where I could document her life and keep my family both near and far updated on what we were doing. Plus, I needed a creative outlet for my photography and writing. I’ve learned so much in five years and I am so thankful for this little mom blog of mine.
What’s your blogging schedule like?
I wish I could tell you that I have a social media conversation calendar. That I plan my content weeks in advance, and that I write a mix of informative, inspiring and promotional posts—but truly, I wing it. I believe organic content that “just happens” is the best kind of content there is. I take my camera everywhere we go because you never know when a moment will happen with your kids that you’ll want to share with the world.
Your must have device?
My SONY NEX-7 DSLR camera. I would be lost without it.
