My name is Luciene Teixeira Marcinkevich, ”Lucy” for short,and I am the co-founder of "Motive To Be Pretty".
I was born and raised in Brazil and have been residing in the United States since 1997. My current residence is in Pennsylvania where I live with my husband Drew and two children. Kyle who is 8 years old and Amanda who is 6 years old. They, as in all three, keep me very busy!
I love to spend time with my family, travel, shopping, fashion and of course make-up. I am, what they call a typical woman.
What I really have grown to love of the past few years is make-up but just recently discovered there is so much more to it than just applying some lipstick and putting on some blush. Without the guidance of applying it correctly I was feeling like I was doing something wrong and although I felt beautiful, I wanted to look like what I saw in the magazines and on TV so I began to research, look up information and try to get the look I desired. In 2010 I discovered Motives by Loren Ridinger, and it changed my life. I took several training classes, and became a Motives Custom Blend Foundation Specialist.
The products are fabulous and I absolutely love helping other women discover the look they want. No matter what level of you are seeking, I can provide you with the knowledge and guidance you are missing to look and feel “Pretty”.
My name is Renata de Lima, and I am the co-founder of, “MOTIVE TO BE PRETTY” blog. I was born and raised in Brazil and have been residing in the United States since 2000. My current residence is in Pennsylania where I live with my husband, and my two lovely children, Maria Eduarda, 9 yrs. old and Fellipe, 6 yrs. old. I manage my life on the run as many women do balancing a full time job, being a mother, and a wife.
I absolutely love to spend time with my family. Some of my favorite things to do include: yoga, dancing, eating, watching movies, applying makeup, shopping, meeting new friends, enjoying nature, and listening to music. If you are near me, you’ll notice that I am always singing. I am also a hopeless romantic and I’m crazy about flowers.
I'm constantly on the move searching for new trends and new ideas. I became a Motives Custom Blend Foundation Specialist and Artist in 2009 with “Motives by Loren Ridinger”. I have always loved makeup but I realized quickly that I could help more women love makeup as well especially once they learned how to use it properly and learn to accent their best features. I love it when my client looks in the mirror in amazement and disbelief on how beautiful they are. They feel wonderful as do I. They walk away feeling confident and strong, and let’s not forget, pretty! My spirit is big and my goal is always to be happy, especially when I’m with my family and friends.
