About

 

Hi!

I’m Molly and I’m the creator of GirlGetGlamorous.  I’m in my late 30’s, engaged to my favorite person, and live in one of my favorite cities: Los Angeles.

I never went to a formal beauty school, I’m just a self-taught makeup gal and life-long beauty addict. 

I started out in Los Angeles as an actor and comedian before switching full-time to makeup. 

Whenever I was working on tv shows, I’d pester the (very patient) hair and makeup artists on set for their favorite products and beauty tips.  In hindsight, I probably should have become a makeup artist much sooner!

For the past five years, I’ve been lucky to get to work as a professional makeup artist in Los Angeles. 

I started out assisting some huge and talented makeup artists.  I was able to learn an incredible amount about application techniques by working with them, before going out on my own.

 

Why

My mission here at GirlGetGlamorous is to make your life better. 

I want to help you look and feel your best, understand how to use all the makeup you own, and give my opinion on the best products, so that it’s easier to find what you need the next time you need to find a beauty product. 

This blog grew out of my desire to share everything I’ve learned and tried and what has worked best for myself and my clients.

Every age is welcome here, but I especially love helping women as they age to look their best!  I think it’s important to love every stage of life.  I don’t feel the need to look “younger,” I just want to look and feel my best and share the tips and tricks that help me feel that way with you.

I hope you find this blog helpful.  Thank you so much for reading and following me.  I love reading all your comments here and on my videos!

– Molly, a.k.a. Girl Get Glamorous

I watched ALL your tutorials on peach. Can you do a post or vid that gets into the nitty-gritty, especially for fair/very fair?

A tutorial on all undertones and fair very fair skin would be great. Like our darker-skinned makeup-wearing brothers and sisters, identifying VP undertones is super hard! Peach & olive especially because they can go warm or cool.

Maybe with some friends modeling

And what is up with violet & silver?

To make peach you mix pink and yellow. Olive yellow and blue. Depending on how much yellow=warmth (I think.)

Every company seems to define it differently. Even your swatch vid.

Peach is from. yellow undertone with a reddish/ pinkish skin tone, right?

I'm on Reddit r/paleMUA (Makeup Addiction) & the number one thing is What's my undertone?

I think I might be peach. Super pale, green/not really colored veins.

Does this sound peach?

My skin has a reddish/pinkish wash over the top of a VERY light yellow UT (I think)

Fairest neutral is close UD 10NN / SB 0.1.

But they leave me kinda grey sitting over a 'warm' body glow.

Switching to yellow or yellow neutral...my face seems really yellow and missing something."

Suggestions.

I'm going crazy & have tried 20 foundations, except peach. Made my own peach mixer with white+red= pink + yellow foundation pigments and added it to neutral. Looked better.

Your blog is truly a blessing to me & exactly what I have been looking for! I have spent A LOT of money on products that just don't work and end up looking cakey on me. My makeup rubs off on my clothes and when I hug others it gets on their clothes (it truly is embarrassing)! A week ago I so frustrated & frankly lost on what to do next but want to feel good about my appearance. I know getting a good skincare routine is crucial to making your makeup sit correctly. I am thrilled to start your AM & PM routines, I LOVE a step by step detail. I am detail oriented so getting things in the order that I should do them helps immensely! I am totally trying the Koh Gen Do & so excited about it, thanks for your real life tips and tricks that even me (a makeup newbie) can follow and learn! I would love to know more about doing eyeshadows the correct way - this is daunting to me...I have liquid shades and powder shades but never know what order to place the colors so I don't look like I just stepped out of the 80's, LOL! Can't wait to watch more tips and tricks! Thanks again!

Hi Molly! I discovered you on youtube yesterday and have since watched a bunch of your videos and read so much of your blog! Thank you for helping me to navigate makeup in my thirties when I feel like makeup doesn't look good on me anymore! I'm feeling hopeful that I can rediscover a little bit of joy and fun with your tips for skin that's not quite what it used to be.

I just wanted to throw out there that I would love to see a post on your other self-care tips for keeping your skin looking great. I'm thinking of nutritional/lifestyle/mental health type things that you find to be effective and helpful in looking and feeling your best.

Thank you again for sharing your wisdom and good vibes!

Hi Chelsea! I love your comments, thank you. So glad these are helping bring back the fun into makeup. It really can be so much fun! I LOVE this idea for a self-care video/post and will add this to my list. Great suggestion, thank you!

What do you think about Latisse for eyebrows and lashes??

Hi Lyn,

I've never tried it, because I have blue eyes and it can change lighter eyes to brown. But I've heard and seen amazing things from my friends with brown eyes that use it. I use the DHC lash tonic and take biotin. The DHC is only $13 and makes them noticeably longer for me in about a month. xo Molly

I'm a natural red head more on the auburn side. What do you use for your eyebrows? My eyebrows look like a light brown in certain light. Hard to find the right shade. Love your haircolor. So beautiful.
