About Karen

Hi, welcome to Beauty Scoops, my little corner of cyberspace where I’ll be writing and teaching about beauty products, trends, and how you can discover a more beautiful YOU! I’m a beauty influencer, blogger, writer, and a health and fitness luminary, having achieved a personal weight-loss of 165 pounds over the past few years.

By day, I work as a Beauty Advisor and the Counter Manager for Estee Lauder in a BonTon store by the name of Bergner’s. We are located in Bloomington, a modest little town in Illinois. By night, I am a die-hard cosmetics junkie and make-up geek. I’m always watching, listening, learning, and trying out new products and trends to give myself an edge on the beauty scene. This is my passion and my joy.

Regardless of the time of day, I am the single mother of three awesome kids. They’re not so little anymore—my oldest is 23, and my youngest are in high school, but they’ll forever be my babies, and as old as they make me feel sometimes, they also make me smile a hundred times a day and keep me young at heart.

I got into makeup as a teenager growing up in Bloomington. Back then, it was all about big hair and black eyeliner. Times have changed, of course, but some things about being and feeling beautiful are always #ontrend, and in this blog, I’ll bring that content to you, along with tips, tricks, and even the passing moments in the world of cosmetics that you might have missed if you blinked.

Estee Lauder believed that every woman is beautiful, and that is what I hope to pass along. Every woman is a beautiful work of art, inside and out, and I want to show you how YOU can learn to feel that way too. ❤+
