ALL IN THE FAMILY: “The first thing Kelly stole from me was a lipstick,” said Sharon Osbourne at the launch in London of the MAC Cosmetics makeup line she created with her daughter Kelly. “In one of our bedrooms in our house, we had striped wallpaper, so Kelly decided to use the lipstick to add another stripe,” said Osbourne during the event on the store’s third floor on Monday. The younger Osbourne admitted that she still has that very same lipstick — and she also shared some wise words from her mother. “The best tip my mom taught me is that beauty comes from the inside,” she said.
“You have to love yourself and be comfortable with yourself. And when you can’t accept yourself for who you are, no matter how hard you try — I tried real hard — you’re never going to wake up and be anyone else. Beauty comes from within, and you have to be confident. When you are confident, it becomes infectious. That’s something my mother has always instilled in me.”
