I met Ann Marie at the Uptown Farmer’s Market selling her Amerin Skincare products. I purchased her Cleansing Grains and loved it! I am always on the hunt for great skincare and this time was no exception. And to buy from a local woman was even better! I knew I wanted Ann Marie to be a part of this t-shirt Tuesday series and promptly went back to see her the next week to ask. I am beyond grateful she took time out of her schedule to let me play with some makeup and more so for sharing her story. I learned so much about Ann Marie when I did her makeup application and I can’t wait to see all she is going to do!
Check out her entire product line- Amerin Skincare.
A little about Ann Marie:
Why is this your favorite t-shirt?: This is my favorite t-shirt because it represents one of the best times of my life that led me to where I am today. Making the choice to pack up and move to New York City at the age of 20 was a brave one and it turned out to be a great one. While I lived in New York I found my independence, met incredible people, pursued a professional dance career and landed an amazing job dancing for Carnival Cruise Lines which eventually led me to meeting my amazing boyfriend and inspiring me to begin my career in skincare.
Tell me a little about yourself: I am a 28 year old ex professional dancer turned entrepreneur, now changing they way people take care of their skin by providing them with organic, chemical free, and cruelty free skincare products. After finding out the hard way that I have a skin/sun allergy to lime, ( and getting over my heartbreak of not being able to have margaritas in the sun anymore) I couldn’t find the skincare products that I needed for my sensitive skin that was truly free from chemicals. So I have created Amerin Skincare to give myself and others the pleasure of having naturally beautiful skin. Giving back to those who need it the most is so important to me so I’m proud to say that Amerin Skincare gives 1% of each sale to feeding America and additional donations to the international rescue committee. I personally believe that everything happens for a reason and that there are no coincidences and if you allow yourself to take life as it comes, it will be incredibly satisfying and always an adventure.
