Why It Took Becoming A Mom For This Woman To Take Beauty Risks

Bright red lips are often the way to our hearts -- that's why we just knew we needed to introduce ourselves to Yolande Makha, who works as a producer.

But the reason behind her foray into makeup might surprise you.

Not only is Yolande a MAC Cosmetics fiend (but really, who isn't?), she says that becoming a mother transformed the way she approaches makeup. "Being a mother has changed the way I see myself and my body," she says. "I started using makeup more after having my son and am more open to trying new products than before."

Well, we love that Yolande's taking beauty risks. What new products have you tried lately?
