Celeb Beauty: Kimora Lee Simmons' Makeup Evolution

The birthday girl's best beauty looks and tips.

Kimora Lee Simmons is one busy lady. Forget her professional responsibilities as president and creative director of JustFabulous and bestselling author–her biggest priority is her family.

As we celebrate Lee Simmons’ birthday today, it’s inspiring to think about how she balances everything on her plate while maintaining a strict beauty routine and making time to pamper herself.

“As a mom of three and the president of a multi-million dollar business, what works for me is setting aside a specific time of day to cater to myself,” Lee Simmons told ESSENCE.com.

Not only does she block off time for herself, but she’s mastered how to get glam while on-the-go. Lee Simmons says she stays prepared by stocking her purse with “lip gloss, my favorite fragrance, facial wipes and a moisturizer. You always want to be camera-ready!”

While taking care of business and looking fabulous while doing it is always on Lee Simmons’ list, at the end of the day being a mom comes first.

“Above all things, I put my children’s needs before mine. It’s a sacrifice I love making every day.”
