about me

You musn't be afraid to sparkle a little brighter, darling_about page

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 outside Philadelphia. Brighter, Darling is a place to find makeup reviews, skin care tips, style inspiration and motherhood stories for the every day woman.

 You won’t find InstaGLAM makeup looks here – we don’t have time for that.

You will find information about products, tutorials, and tips on how to take the everyday woman to her most glamorous self.

Besides dumping all of my top secret tricks online,

my career includes over 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 videos – you can find me giving beauty advice to friends and family, or enjoying life with my husband and our golden retrievers, Tex & Jersey.

In October 2018, we welcomed #BrighterDarlingBaby, Savannah Faith

Born October 12, 2018, 7 lb 13 oz 19 inches, our lives are forever changed for the better. Very excited to share more about my journey into motherhood with my friends and followers.

I believe it’s most important in life to be authentic.

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:
