Q&A: From my IG followers!

I always get asked ?'s on IG and its hard to get to them all, so I posted a pic along with this title..

"How old are you?"

"Hi Kasey!! I love your videos! But my question is how did you start your own cosmetics line?"
I spent a long time researching labs and took my time finding which one I wanted to work with, I then searched packaging, labels and did my homework on ingredient lists. I then choose my Youtube Channel "still glamorous" for my company name and I also created my label myself as well. I spent a lot time learning how to create my website and which web host I wanted to go with. I started with selling only pigments then over the years started adding more and more products! :)

"When you and your BF had issues, how did you get past it, learn from it, and end up happy again?"
We've been through a lot, as most couples we have our ups and downs and let me just say.. when I say downs.. I mean rock bottom. I made some bad choices in our relationship but he's forgiven me, I cant even say he's "past" things, forgiveness is a process. Does he have his sad moments.. yes. We all do. Despite our bad times.. we choose to be happy. Thats important ya know.

"How do you manage to look amazing with 4 kids?"
I wish I always looked amazing truth is.. I only do my makeup and get ready about twice a week.

"What are your thoughts on marriage??
I simply dont believe in marriage, The social pressure and disapproval, the way the government controls you in a way, using love and paper work.  Im tired of facing legal and economic discrimination. I believe in a commitment that you make in your heart. There's no paper that will make you stay. 

"When did you start your Youtube Channel?"
