Married to Medicine's Mariah Huq is a busy woman, and whether she's dressed up or down, she always manages to look flawless — clearly she knows a thing or two about beauty and self-care. Now that her daughter, Lauren-Taylor Huq, is a teenager, she has some sage beauty advice to give the high school student.
"She doesn't need makeup yet," Mariah told BravoTV.com, sharing she wants her daughter to "keep her skin clean and don't be in a rush to wear makeup."
The television producer explained, "She's in 10th grade now and a lot of the girls are wearing full faces. I'm like, you don't need that, you have beautiful skin and once you start wearing it, you almost have to wear it. So, I think the most important thing for me is for her to stay youthful and keep her skin beautiful."
Mariah even shared a special proverb to sum up her motherly advice: "You have to remember that makeup is an accessory, not a necessity — and that's what I say to her."
Although she wants Lauren-Taylor to keep her skin fresh and healthy, a little makeup never hurt anybody — as long as it's used sparingly. She said, "There's nothing like being able to get up and have a beautiful face... it's OK to add [makeup] and be glamorous and get glammed, but you don't want to have to do that."
Wise words, Mariah. Wise words.
