Courtney Shields is a mom, entrepreneur, and self-proclaimed pro at finding the silver lining. Beyond her no-nonsense insight into beauty, lifestyle, and fashion, there’s an authenticity and a no b.s. vibe that came from walking through fire and forging a stronger version of herself.
Courtney has found a gift for connecting with people like her who are busy dealing with their own hard stuff—because when life throws you curveballs, you learn what’s really important. She has built a community of like-minded women who want to get it together, get their pretty on, and take on their day—with a little extra confidence and all their beauty faves in tow. Together with an industry powerhouse team, DIBS® Beauty was brought to life to cut through the clutter with makeup bag go-tos that make your bad days better, and your good days effortless.
Let’s do this.
