Welcome to Beauty Diary: Seven days of getting glam with an industry insider. From publicists to professional makeup artists, this is a week in the life of someone who lives and breathes beauty.

Stephanie Ferreira Koutikas' busy lifestyle might make you think there are actually 36 hours in each of her days. She's the marketing director for the theater makeup brand Mehron (which was founded in 1927!), a mom to two boys (pictured above), a trained makeup artist, and co-owner of a Greek restaurant with her husband in Connecticut.

The Portuguese native somehow also finds the time to attend beauty trade shows and oversee Mehron's photo shoots (an idea of what that entails: they're well known for their body painting). In her Beauty Diary, Stephanie demonstrates how to perfect effortless bouncy curls, what skincare products are best for moms-on-the-go, and the coffee she drinks to keep going.
