There are no words that can truly express the love and gratitude that we have for our mothers. Every day they bestow upon us their great wisdom, including guidance on how to heal from a broken heart and how to strut in a killer pair of high heels.
The lessons we've learned from our mothers are deeply-rooted within us. And since sharing is something they would appreciate, we're dropping gems from our mamas.

"My most favorite thing in my bathroom cabinet is a jar of Sisley Global anti-age cream. It feels so amazing when I put it on my face. It's expensive, but moisturizing is so important and it's well worth it. With that said, I think the best beauty advice is a good night's sleep and lots of water." - Melanie Mayer

"Be happy for today!" - Yvonne Karamali, grandmother
"It's more important to be beautiful on the inside than on the outside." Dilara Hafiz, mom

"Never be afraid to experiment with hair. It's just hair, and it grows back! Always feel free to express your beauty -- whether through makeup, piercings, or otherwise. It's important to express yourself. Also, eye cream, eye cream and more eye cream." - Samantha, mom
"It's never too early to start using anti-aging moisturizer. Lipstick is an extremely important tool. Pick a hairdresser and stick with him. And you can make anything look expensive as long as you wear it the right way -- with confidence." Milly, grandmother

My mom [Mary Ann] has always told me: "Pretty is as pretty does"-- meaning your beauty comes from how well you treat people and carry yourself in the world. No amount of makeup, lotions or potions can mask a mean spirit.

If there's one thing my mom [Marilyn] has taught me about beauty, it's that you really don't need to conform to any type of trend -- my mom has dyed her hair a million colors and wears the flashiest prints, because they represent her, not what others think about her. This has definitely been an inspiration for the bold, bright lipsticks I wear and my ability to accept my hair as hair, not a super precious gem that's worth a million dollars. Read: Don't cry over it, and cover it with a wig. Ha!
