As moms, we know that we have a million things going on. It feels like we already don't time to do things on our ongoing to-do list, and when it comes to ourselves, we always tend to put that down at the bottom of that list. Natasha Cornstein, CEO of Blushington Makeup & Beauty Lounge, wants to change that for women. That's why she joined the team at Blushington, an affordable makeup and beauty lounge located that provides professional makeup services in a fun and chic atmosphere (think Dry Bar for makeup.)
Natasha helps Blushington with their luxury aesthetic, yet it's appeal to the everyday woman. It's all about feeling pampered and walking out of Blushington feeling like a million bucks.
Congratulations on all the success of Blushington! Having a chic place where you can go and get your makeup done by professionals is any moms' dream! Tell us what we can look forward to from Blushington.
If you could hand off one chore to someone else each day, what would it be?
Opening and sorting the mail.
What is your favorite thing to do to relax and unwind?
Coffee in bed on a Sunday morning with the NYT
What is your best parenting hack?
I try to envision the experiences we are creating through the eyes of my son. What would make it meaningful/memorable for him. I have learned that what truly matters to my son is often different than what might make it memorable for me.
What is the best white lie that you’ve told your child?
NONE. Not a believer in white lies. I try to take an age appropriate approach to information. As adults we often feel we have to give very detailed information. Usually our children just need us to put a situation in the context of their life experience.
If you could describe motherhood in one word, what would it be?
What’s one moment in your motherhood journey that has made you proud?
It is so hard to isolate a moment. I am so proud of the kindness and awareness my son shows to those around him. They are two qualities that we have emphasized since he was born and I am proud that they have become so innate to him.
What is one piece of advice you want to pass along to your children?
I want my son to live his life with as little self doubt and anxiety as possible. To look in the mirror and to love who he sees there.
What is one piece of advice you would pass along to other moms?
How do you tackle the work/life balance?
By accepting that it will not be balanced everyday. There are days where work takes precedence and days that family takes precedence. I will not get it right every day and I am at a point where I can live with that.
What was the last book you read?
Me Before You
What’s in your diaper bag?
No more diapers for me. My son is 11. I still carry hand wipes, snacks and a safety bag for food allergies (epi pens and benedryl).
