Whether you’re a poker fan or Louboutin lover, Beth Shak should be on your “women to watch” list. The world-class professional poker player and owner of the largest collection of Christian Louboutin’s in the world, though, is more than just a Vegas-lovers dream girl. Rather, Beth Shak is also a philanthropist, mother and Real Beauty.
We sat down with Beth Shak and asked her to weigh in on Real Beauty…
I think beauty is… your inner self.
I feel most beautiful when… I’m in my 6-inch Louboutin’s.
I feel self-conscious when… People recognize me.
Ideal with pressure by… calling my therapist.
For me, poker means… competition, achievement.
My 3 cannot-live-without-them beauty products are… MAC Bronzer, Aveno moisturizing lotion, Dior Show mascara.
My pre-event routine consists of… having my charged iPods and my lifesavers mints
The women I most admire are… Sarah Blakely, an amazing entrepreneur, and my mom who went to University of Pennsylvania then back to nursing school at 40 with 3 kids. I don’t know how she did it.
If I could give young women a piece of advice, it would be… Be independent. Always earn money on your own. Never solely rely on a man.
My dreams for the future are… Big!
The one lesson I try to remind myself of is to… Never give up.
I wish more women would… Realize they can balance being a great mom and having a successful career.
I wish I could… clone myself sometimes.
My favorite body part of mine is… eyes.
I hate my… height.
The one style tip I swear by is… Don’t get taken by the style of the moment if it doesn’t look good on you!
In the next year I hope to… Achieve my next set of goals…
If I could only keep 3 items in my closet, they would be… Classic Louboutin Peep toes, Hermes Birkin bag, the “it” pair of well fitted jeans.
