I'm so excited to share the BIG news you have all been waiting for…
It's been a crazy last couple of weeks, folks. The new year began with me asking myself the age old question of, “What is my purpose in life?” and how do I incorporate my passion and love for beauty products and playing dress up into my purpose? Sounds silly when I say it out loud — or at least I thought it was silly until I publicly asked the question WHAT IF to The It Mom community. The response to a silly question became an overwhelming serious response to you, our community, wanting a piece of ‘It'.
So what was the question? I asked our Facebook community this: “I have a quick question for you…if you are a mom that was given an opportunity to receive an all expense paid head-to-toe makeover and then have experts teach you and physically show you how to apply makeup yourself, where to shop and what outfits to buy for your body type, and how to get ready everyday in minutes and have your experience and your personal story documented and shared with the world on social media…would you do it? If yes, hit “like” and comment ‘YES!' and I will share details here ASAP! I wanted to gauge interest first. Eek this is so exciting, I can't wait to share it with you!!!”
And then the modern busy moms of The It Mom community went crazy!!! This is really a thing, a need, a possible solution to the problems and challenges so many of us moms have — we want to know how to get ready in less time AND look fabulous. It's a common theme among us busy moms, and I may have just cracked the code!!!

We are bringing twelve moms total (including four mom influencers) to Newport Beach, California where they will get to partake in a once in a lifetime experience of receiving a head to toe mommy makeover. Not only will they get pampered, they will also learn the how-to's of how to apply the very same makeover techniques on their own once they get home AND bring home a jam-packed gift of ALL the products they get to keep too.
Oh, and let's not forget the professional photo shoot and getting personal with their fifteen seconds of fame by sharing their own unique story. And this isn't your typical sob story of “poor little me”, okay. These are women who face relevant issues that have unique, fun, humorous, quirky, witty, and impactful life stories of either motherhood or their own personal story. We are here to motivate, inspire, and transform. This is not your typical one and done mommy makeover, we are here to motivate, inspire, and transform.
I've made this my 2017 ministry and I'm committed to helping as many moms as I can in different ways. And although this project is self-funded and in partnership with several amazing brands who share the same vision, desires, and beliefs as I do – there's no telling how far this show could go! THIS. IS. HUGE.

Total Mom Makeover Show Launches April 6
Beauty and Lifestyle Expert Daisy Teh’s Show to Transform 12 Women’s Lives
Las Vegas, Nev. (February 3, 2017) – It’s a universal challenge: busy moms find themselves juggling family, home life, and often a full time job, leaving little time for themselves. Women who were once fit, stylish and “put together” often admit to barely putting on makeup or styling their hair on some days. From fashion and makeup to hair and nails to fitness and mental rejuvenation, today’s moms are desperate for a turnaround.
Daisy Teh, Mommy Makeover expert and lifestyle blogger, is here to save the day for 12 busy moms who are in need of a complete, 360-degree makeover. Teh’s “The It Mom: Total Mom Makeover” reality webshow launches April 6, 2017.
Each weekly episode (Thursdays, 8/7 p.m. central) will feature one mom’s unique and inspiring story and her vow to find a way to feel more like herself, stand out from the crowd and regain her confidence. The makeover focuses on realistic solutions that can be incorporated into a mom’s busy life but that can make a big impact on her daily beauty and fashion choices. Each episode will follow the mom through her total makeover transformation, offering tips and inspiration for the audience.
“It’s easy to find ourselves putting everyone else’s needs above our own,” explains Teh. “Moms do this all the time, at their own expense. They find themselves rushing to get ready in the morning, not giving themselves the time and attention they deserve. I felt like I had to do something about this.”
No one knows better than Teh how challenging it can be to balance the demands of motherhood while staying true to yourself. A teen mom at just 17, Teh got her cosmetology license and worked her way through college for makeup brands like Lancome and Borghese, where she fell in love with beauty and style. Despite her passion, Teh still struggled to raise two children, attend school, work and find time to look and feel her best. Once she landed a full time corporate job, she now has four children and a large family to care for. Despite living her “dream life”, Teh found herself tired, haggard and uninspired by makeup or clothing. “I felt like I’d lost myself,” Teh recalls.
Her site, The It Mom, began as a place for Teh to rediscover and share her passion for fashion, beauty and lifestyle topics. As her following grew, Teh realized her readers also needed more inspiration, ideas and solutions to what many moms fall victim to: the dreaded “letting yourself go” rut.
So The Total Mom Makeover Show was born. First, Teh put a call out on social media to gauge interest in her project. The response was staggering. In less than 10 days, more than 500 women responded with stories of frustration, fatigue, hopelessness and more.
Their plea was clear: help us regain our confidence and sense of self!
During her years as a licensed cosmetologist, Teh performed many makeovers with her customers. “I have seen what transformation does to one's confidence and self-esteem,” she explains.
Teh’s “The It Mom Dream Team” includes a slew of fashion, beauty and style experts from across the country as well as four other online influencers who serve as the Dream Team Influencer Panel of judges and believe as she does, that the series will be life changing for the participating women and a true inspiration for viewers. “It’s important to lift one another up and support each other,” Teh says. “This team believes in that vision.”
The It Mom Dream Team includes:
Dusty Simington, Celebrity Hairstylist & Salon Gregories, http://www.salongregories.com
Sean Tu, http://www.wgcnyc.com/, George Teh, http://www.specturemedia.com, Aileen Orticio, http://www.oakfotography.com
Cherrie Luzon, Sophadavy Hun, Ashley Trevino, Karen Flor
Kenya Thomas, http://www.theskinnynyc.com, Tiany Davis, http://www.socialsavvymom.com, Jennifer Christ, http://www.thefamilyfudge.com, and Rachel Coppola http://www.citygala.com
The twelve selected moms will be featured in each episode and are treated to an all-expense paid trip to Newport Beach, Calif. where the It Mom’s Dream Team awaits them with:
- A personalized hair styling session by a celebrity hairstylist
- A personalized makeup session by expert makeup artist/aesthetician
- A manicure/pedicure session by expert manicurist
- A personalized styling session by expert and/or celebrity fashion stylists
- A shopping experience with a personal stylist
- Tutorials on hair, makeup and easy fashion for moms on the go.
- Professional photoshoot and personal interview
Teh considers this project one of the most important of her career. “To help someone regain their sense of self is truly incredible. I’m humbled to be able to provide the opportunity to do this for these women.”
