Danielle taught us how to do a fun summer look by using shimmery mauves and bronzer in a proper ‘C’ fashion. We learned to apply moisturizer on the face and not to forget the eyelids! Also, concealer can work magic when trying to look younger and well-rested. And, there are great makeup lines at the drug store as well as at the high-end department stores. She advises to spend your money on a great foundation!

Born at St. Vincents, Julie has lived in Birmingham nearly all her life, and she looks forward to meeting and connecting moms all over our community. Before having kids and co-founding Birmingham Mom Colllectie, she worked various jobs as a retail manager, merchandise manager, software support associate, and an HR recruiter. When she's not taking care of her two young children, you can find her (sometimes) working out, singing and fellowshipping at her church, playing golf (horribly), drinking sweet tea, and taking trips with her husband, Nathan. She loves all things coffee, Gilmore Girls, Disney World, Dolly Parton, and peanut m&ms!
