Oh hey you’ve stumbled upon yet another beauty blog!
Thank you for stopping by my little nook of the interwebs. My name is Steffanie and I’m a no-nonsense Jersey girl currently residing in Houston, Texas giving my best big-sisteresque advice and recommendations on beauty. Occasionally, I also post about other life adventures of a 30something.
Brighter, Darling is a place for women just getting into makeup or already seasoned pros to share perspectives, riddle through the marketing hype of products and have a safe place to ask the most basic beauty questions. You won’t find InstaGLAM makeup looks here. You will find information about products, tutorials and advice on how to take the everyday woman to her most glamorous self.
Besides dumping all of my top secret tricks online,
my career includes nearly a decade of success in marketing communications and public relations for non-profits to Fortune 100 companies. I have my Master of Business Administration in Entrepreneurship/Innovation Management and my Bachelor of Arts in Broadcast Journalism.
Growing up on the coast of New Jersey,
I love all things summertime and – when not glued to my iPad mini reading other blogs or watching YouTube makeup tutorials – you can find me giving beauty advice to friends and family, practicing yoga, researching new makeup or enjoying life with my husband and our golden retrievers, Tex & Jersey. Also, lots of wine drinking and sending my friends Snapchats of me using weird filters.
I believe it’s most important in life to be authentic.
My sorority’s ever-present motto is “Esse Quam Videri,” which means “To be, rather than to seem to be.” I’m here to sparkle bright and help you do the same. I hope you’ll join me by subscribing and following me on social media:
