Makeover Momma offers a beautiful take on the messy world of motherhood. Founder, editor and Salty Girl Bailey Anne Vincent muses on the shallow side of parenting, and all the little moments that take our breath away.
Bailey Anne Vincent
Bailey Anne Vincent is the founder of Makeover Momma.com, a freelace Makeup Artist, long-time choreographer, and mother of two. After a long running column as a teen, and various digital gigs with American Greetings, Walmart, and Livestrong, she went on to found her own website for busy, budgeted mothers. Even though she started her career as a fashion and beauty correspondent (Daily Makeover, QVC, Conde Naste Influencer Panel), she has also worked as an nonprofit Executive Director and advocate for the deaf, and frequent voice for the chronically ill. She is terrible at cooking, cleaning and most math problems… but can eat her body weight in chocolate, has super high dancer arches, and hasn’t worn a bra in 10 years (no boob perks). As a previously single mom, she is now hitched (possibly because he looks like Joseph Gordon Levitt when she squints her eyes?), and plugging away at novels in her free time. (See also, novella The Details of How We Lived). She feels uncomfortable with cuddling/hugging/spooning of any kind and can read your lips from across a room (so yeah, totally saw what you just said).

Catching Breath: As an advocate for the chronically ill, Bailey’s journey with health has been a long one, which she has shared openly through xoJane, daily vlogs (now private) and her previous participation in the Salty Girls project. Identified with Cystic Fibrosis bugs, symptoms and needs after years of pneumonia as a teen, she battled frequent lung infections, pancreatic insufficiency, and hearing loss to the profound levels, before deciphering her anomalous genes with the help of a CF clinic. Now, considering herself a “mutant” and/or “salty reject” who does not fit into any clear-cut diagnosis (it’s okay- Ian still loves her), Bailey continues to tackle infections and hospitalizations, but has turned a hopeful eye towards holistic healthcare and natural healing as well. After an experimental stem cell transplant in 2015, her pancreatic function is back, her lung function has gone up, and she continues with her daily regime of chest clearance techniques, gumption and advocating for those with rare respiratory and heart conditions (in her case, Brugadda Syndrome). Previously on supplemental oxygen, she is happy to barely ever touch her cannula any more… So long, sucker! She is part robot (portacath, GJ tube, defibrillator/pacemaker, Continuous Glucose Monitor), but thankful for all of the technologies and techniques that have kept her alive to date… If only so she can better smother her kiddos with kisses!
From Then to Now: Makeover Momma was founded in 2008 to provide busy, budgeted mommas with the means to feeling fit, fashionable and fabulous. It was relaunched briefly in 2015 to include additional writers for a variety of voices- focusing on inner and outer beauty (and all the products between). Now, it’s back to the basic: motherhood, mayhem, makeup and more. For more information on Makeover Momma Press, awards and experience, please see here.
