As the Co-Founder of YourBasicBeauty.com Gemma has discovered the importance of women building each other up, not breaking each other down. Her passion roots from this, as does this business.

'Professional, educational and FUN'

“My daughter and I absolutely loved our mom and me makeup party. Having a teenager, I wanted her to learn about makeup, but I knew it wasn’t going to come from me. Tracilee and Gemma were professional, educational & FUN. My daughter still follows the Basic Beauty Blog to this day. It was one of the best events that we have shared as mother and daughter.”
