When I read that statistic I was just shocked! Growing up I never really heard, or thought, much about domestic violence. It was more something from a crazy episode of Cops on TV than it was something that might ever affect anyone I knew.

That was until I grew up and all of my generation and friends all started getting married–and then getting divorced. And after talking to some of these girls I was just shocked to hear their stories. Being in a very loving, wonderful marriage where my husband always and only treats me with respect it was horrifying to hear about these “one in four” girls stories. When that one in 4 really is one out of every 4 of your friends, it begins to hit home–especially when you have a healthy relationship to compare to what they’re describing to you.

Before & After with L'Oréal Paris Magic Nude makeup!
Legalese Nonsense: I’m always looking for the latest & greatest new makeup products so when SheSpeaks gave me the chance to bare it all (on my face of course!!!) and dare to show you my before & after shots with Before & After with L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude makeup! I decided I was up to the challenge! They sent me the bottle to use but, as always, what you see is what you get with me!

Ok–by now it’s NO surprise to anyone that I looooove makeup and that I can’t live without the most important part of it–my foundation! Though I’ve been currently crushing on the Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream from Loreal with summer ending I felt like it was time to switch to something with just a wee bit more coverage–enter the all new L’Oréal Paris Magic Nude makeup!

Now–for this product I decided to do something I’d NEVER done before and give you the full effect of what this product can do for you with Before and After selfies—that means–you see me with absolutely *no* makeup!! Yes, a little scary!
