Image Concierge @imageconcierge

In this Mom game, it is so easy to forget about taking care of ourselves.  The kids are fed and bathed and put together but we haven’t showered in days, you have a messy top knot and two-day-old yoga pants on. On this night The Melanin Matcher™, at Image Concierge was getting us all the way together.

Listen, it is not cute to wear a foundation shade that does not match. Your makeup shouldn’t look like a peel-off mask.  Learn those undertones ladies.

    Listen, why are you forcing me to face the fact that I haven’t really taken care of ME in a while. I do try to regularly maintain my brows so I can look acceptable to myself when I wake up first thing in the morning, but nails, skin and whatnot are maintained by me when I really want it to be maintained by someone NOT me. This event looked SO necessary, and I’m glad that you got out to experience it!

    A mother makeover? Why yes! So I’m living my “get your life” day through you! LOL!! I really like District Motherhued and the events they put on and this was no different. Thanks for shouting out all the businesses because a girl in the DMV needs to know where to go!

    What an awesome event for moms. As moms we often find ourselves on the back burner to the spouse and children. Thanks for reminding moms to take care of ourselves and relax, relate, release with friends.

    It looks like you had an awesome time! I am not a mom, but I can appreciate needing some time to refresh your mind, body and spirit, especially with your girls in tow!

    The event looks like it was an awesome experience. I love that they had different black-owned businesses helping out. Moms need events like this one in their lives.

  12. Tiffany H.

    This looks like a fun event. Its important for mothers to have me time, but I understand they put everyone else before themselves.I used to go every 2 weeks for eyebrow, I’m embarrassed to say how often I go now, lets just say they have been neglected. LOL Super important to matched up for the correct foundation. I would have taken advantage of the massage table to get out all the kinks.
