Beauty Full Stories with Erin's Faces

Beauty Full Stories with Erin's Faces

It's a struggle to live up to beauty standards and sharing our stories helps show that true beauty is more than skin deep. Whether it's our our weight, race, skin clarity, age, hair, or more, it can all make us feel like we don't fit in or that we're not good enough. The aim of our conversations with women is to show that none of us are alone - to share how different people have, or are working through, these challenges so that we can all be one step closer to being free of them for good. Since it's hosted by Erin Williams, founder of the clean beauty brand Erin's Faces, there's some good dish on makeup and skincare too! For more info head over to www.beautyfullstories.com
