Kristine Rose

I’m a certified Esthetician, freelance make-up artist, and beauty writer. 

I am pretty much summed up by this story from my childhood:

When I was four a friend of mine had a birthday party. Her mom hired a guy dressed up like Barney the Dinosaur. All the kids were thrilled that Barney was there. But not me. See, I noticed the zipper in the back of his costume. This was not Barney at all, this was an imposter. I was devastated. I ran and told my mom what I had found out. I told her something had to be done, that this was a lie, and all the other kids deserved to know. My mom said that I shouldn't tell them because it would only upset them. That it was better to keep it to myself and let them live in happy ignorance.

I didn't listen to my mom. I told all my friends about the zipper. They all cried. Then I cried too.
