Beauty has always been important to makeup artist Brittney Nelson. So when she walked into a Sephora store in Augusta, Georgia, and saw a trashed makeup display, she may have seen it as a form of sacrilege. When she realized that the perpetrator was a child, however, her outrage was directed away from the offender and onto the child’s mom.
Nelson grew up surrounded by powerful women. Her grandmother never went a day without wearing heels, right up until she passed away on her 90th birthday. Her aunt encouraged a beauty regime at an early age. Even her mom never faced a day without looking presentable.
