TEMPTU’s “My Mom, The Beauty Icon” Contest
This Mother’s Day, the TEMPTU family is celebrating by honoring our beautiful moms! Most often, it’s our moms we crown as our first beauty icons. We grow up wanting to mimic her lifestyle: often playing dress-up in her closet, fussing around in her makeup when she’s not looking and paying close attention to her beauty routines, hoping that one day, we too, would possess her timeless beauty. This year, we’re remembering the good ‘ol times and sharing some of the classic beauty tips, passed on from our incredible mothers.
Our E-commerce and Digital Project Manager, Chelsea Davis is pictured here with her mom, Susan. “My mom is a beautiful woman inside and out, strong, confident and an amazing friend she IS my beauty icon. My grandmother, Mamajean, told her that Dinah Shore always had beautiful skin because she wore foundation when she stepped outside. This was before women actually wore makeup, no makeup bags even existed, just a compact to blot your nose to get rid of shine. My grandmother passed on the idea foundations may have some beauty benefits, especially modern formulas built with SPF already in them.”
Our Assistant Digital Communications Manager, Diarrha N’Diaye pictured with her mother, Aminata. “My mother-originally from Senegal, West Africa- has always been my beauty inspiration. She is 55+ and still has enviable skin. She’s always taught me to take care of myself, have selfless love for others and, her all time favorite, less is more. This picture is from my older sister’s wedding, where we had to talk her into wearing more makeup than usual– often, a tradition in Senegalese culture. She reminded me that day, that if you take care of your skin properly, makeup will accentuate your beauty at any age.”
Our COO and Co-owner, Samantha Mandor’s pictured with her mother and little sister.”My mom is a beauty icon not just because she is a total knockout, but because she came here in the 1960′s from India, built a full life for herself, and always celebrated what made her unique. That’s probably the best beauty tip she has passed on to my sister and I: Celebrate your differences – they are what make you who you are. This picture is from 1982 in front of our apartment building. I’m ready to receive my First Communion (hence the outfit), with my little sister and my mom in one of her beautiful saris. I am a very tall seven year old here!”
