Our relationships with our moms may be a rollercoaster of tears and laughter reminiscent of popular telenovelas. However, we know that every city girl has grown up to watching her mom waltz in her closet and whip up magic with her makeup brushes, and now secretly admires the classic beauty expressed in each line of age that graces the elegant face of her mom.
We asked smart, strong and stunning urbanistas on the beauty secrets that they learned from their moms and now staunchly live by:
