Each week our FACES of Atlanta series showcases some of the most accomplished women around town. We love getting to know more about them, learning about their success and vision, and being inspired. One common thread — we’re all still girls that enjoy a little personal indulgence and a hot beauty tip. We’ve put together some favorites that keep our FACES as lovely on the outside as they are on the inside.
