Get Ready with Me and My 96 Year Old Grandma

Guys…I am so excited!!! I have dreamt of doing this video for at least two years. I used to always love watching my grandma do her makeup in the mirror and I would just sit there and stare. This must be where my love for makeup began way back when I was a little girl. To be able to sit in front of the camera at the age of 26 and do my makeup with my 96 year old grandmother is an experience I will never forget. I truly hope you guys enjoyed watching this video as it is something I hold super near and dear to my heart. Let me know if you enjoy the format of a “get ready with me” video…I know that we had so much fun making it.

Maybe you experienced a little of Grandma Jessie’s love while watching? She has loads of love to give and never holds back from loving each and every person she meets so I wouldn’t be surprised. What surprised you most about this video and what is something new you learned? If you have any requests for my next video feel free to leave a comment and let me know!
