About Better Start Beauty

Hi there! We’re Jessica and Stefanie, and we’re a mother/daughter duo who love to dish about all things travel and makeup related. We started Better Start Beauty as a place to showcase the hairstyles Daisy created for prom and homecoming, but it’s evolved into so much more! We enjoy motivating others, sharing our travel adventures, and providing tips to help girls develop more confidence.

A Little About Us:

We both love the laid-back vibe of summertime and live for the days when we’re sitting on a beach with our toes in the sand and hair up in messy buns.

Our goals

Our goal for this website is to help YOU by answering your questions and sharing what we’ve learned. If this is your first time here, we suggest you start by browsing the beauty and travel sections. Or you can check out our most recent posts under the “blog” tab along the top menu.

If you have questions about any of the topics listed above, if there are any tutorials you’d like to request — or if you’d just like to say hi — you can drop us a line at hello@betterstartbeauty.com. You can also connect with us on social media at any of the links below. Thanks for stopping by!


When we started this blog, we knew we wanted to be able to give back a percentage of our earnings to the causes that mean the most to us. When you click on or make a purchase through certain links (commonly called “affiliate links“) on this site, we have the potential to make a commission from that click or purchase. While we don’t make much from what we call “click money”, it does add up over time.

The majority of that money goes right back into the maintenance of the site. However, we donate a minimum of 25% of those proceeds to charity so you can feel good about shopping our recommended links!

About Jessica:

♡ I’m passionate about good skincare, healthy living, and I enjoy traveling as often as possible. I can talk about the beauty for days on end.
♡ I spent many years working for a few national publications, so if you’re the crafty type and think we look familiar, you may have seen us in the pages (or on the cover) of scrapbook and craft magazines.
