LIKE MANY GOOD IDEAS…

3 Graces Beauty was born on a road trip with two tired working moms in need of a little inspiration and lots of concealer.

The night was nothing out of the ordinary, even the trip was nothing spectacular. Driving through the night, we were doing what friends do. We talked! We talked about life, about work, about raising our girls. We talked about our hopes for them (and for us), and we talked about what the future might bring. Before we knew it, our talking turned into reminiscing. We reminisced about how we were raised, the things we were taught, especially by our mothers, and how our faith was instrumental in shaping who we are today. 

Trading mom-isms (“Pretty is as pretty does!”, “If you act half as nice as you look, you’ll be fine.” and “Anything worth doing is worth doing well.”) turned into recalling our favorite verses with Colleen suddenly pulling out a notebook to see how many we could remember by heart. The power of this conversation and these simple yet outrageously powerful reminders gave us a sense of peace and clarity. And…an idea!!

We want what every mother wants for her child!  We want our children to have a strong faith, to possess integrity, and to develop a strong desire to help others. We want them to learn that we are stronger when we support each other; we want to raise them to be aware of their responsibility to make this world a better place for the next generation; and above all, we want them to understand that true beauty comes from the inside. Sure, makeup is fun and even necessary at times, but kindness, compassion, and courage are far more important.

It is no secret that we both love beauty products and understand their power to transform, but we also know that there is so much more to beauty than just a pretty face. Our passion grew from there, and it is our overwhelming pleasure to share with you the 3 Graces Beauty line of beauty products that are not only functional but can also encourage the heart and lift the spirit. 

3 Graces Beauty is not just about inspiration! It’s also about great products! For her entire life, Colleen has worked in the beauty industry from makeup artist to product specialist, from consultant to beauty publicist. Her career has lead her from editorial work to special effects with makeup for film and television and then on to the direct selling arena where she has helped thousands of women around the world learn how to build their own successful beauty businesses. From Paris to the Amazon and in whatever capacity she found herself, Colleen’s work has had a significant impact on the beauty industry as well as on the people she has met and the women she has influenced.

We knew the products had to deliver on performance and be free from harmful ingredients. In developing our first product, Radiant Lip Gloss, Colleen spent more than 2 years working with a classically trained portrait artist to perfect the color pigments. Together, they spent hours mixing colors to create the perfect color range, testing and tweaking to ensure they would work for all skin tones. The result is 7 vibrant colors that deliver superb staying power as they glide on perfectly for a beautiful finish.
