You CAN be a MOM AND DO ANYTHING!

One of the questions I get asked as a makeup artist is, “Can you manage a free-lance career and raise a child?” Well, I did, and I’m still doing it!

Somehow you figure it out.

Imagine if you were raising a baby, and training for the 2012 Summer Olympics? Well, that’s what Kara Goucher did. I got to meet her (doing her hair and makeup) and her family for a Redbook Magazine photo shoot. Her baby is under two and is already sprinting down the track! His daddy is a marathon runner too. I wonder where his future lies…
