Getting Started
Do I have to be a Mom to wear Mommy Makeup?
Of Course Not! Anyone who has a busy schedule, with little time for themselves, but still wants to look and feel good will love Mommy Makeup. Our founder, Debra Rubin-Roberts decided to name the brand Mommy Makeup because becoming a mom was what inspired her to develop a multi-tasking, makeup artist quality product line that is super quick and easy to use yet still gives professional results.
How do I choose which kit shade is best for me?
Most of our makeup kits contain our Mineral Dual Powder SPF15. To choose which kit is best for you, focus on choosing the Mineral Dual Powder SPF15 that you feel best suits your skin tone. We have provided pictures of women for each of our product shades as a way to help guide you in selecting your correct color. If you are still uncertain which makeup kit, Mineral Dual Powder SPF15 or Mommy’s Little Helper Concealer is right for you, please email us a photo of yourself and we’ll help you choose the right shades.
What is the best way to prepare my face and skin for applying makeup?
Makeup goes on best when your skin is clean and hydrated. Wash your face, towel dry then apply eye cream to your under eye area (NOT the lid) and a light weight facial moisturizer to your face. Let these product soak into your skin for a minute then apply your makeup.
Do I have to use eye cream?
You don’t HAVE to do anything. But we find you will achieve the best makeup application when you apply eye cream (not gel) under your eyes (not on the lids) and a light weight facial moisturizer on your face.
Can I use my facial moisturizer around my eyes?
We do NOT recommend doing so. The skin around your eyes is much thinner and more delicate than the skin on the rest of your face. Facial moisturizer is designed for the skin on your face (which is thicker than the skin around the eyes) and will not absorb the same way around the eyes as it does on the face. Additionally, because the skin around your eyes is thinner, it is often drier than the skin on your face and therefore requires a bit more moisture. We find it best to use eye cream under your eyes and facial moisturizer on the face.
Do I need to use makeup primer with Mommy Makeup?
No, our products do not REQUIRE you to use a makeup primer… BUT some customers (especially those with oily skin) like to apply a primer as they find it increases the makeup’s wearability. Other customers do NOT use a primer and find that our products are still very long-wearing.
I have acne. Will Mommy Makeup aggravate it more?
It should not. Mommy Makeup is nonacnegenic and noncomodegenic and should not aggravate your acne.
Product Questions
Are Mommy Makeup products hypo-allergenic?
Yes. However, the term “hypo-allergenic” can be misleading. It does NOT mean that you will never have an allergic reaction to a product. In fact, your body chemistry changes daily and you can use a product or eat a certain food for years and then suddenly become allergic to it. The correct terminology is ALLERGY-TESTED which means the product has been tested for a likelihood of an allergic reaction occurring, a that occurrence is minimal (but it is still not a guarantee). All Mommy Makeup products are allergy-tested.
Are Mommy Makeup products nonacnegenic and noncomodegenic?
Yes. Our pressed mineral powders are oil-free and talc-free, which are the core properties of a nonacnegenic product. Our pressed mineral powders are also noncomodegenic and will NOT clog your pores. Additionally all our mineral makeup products are fragrance-free (as well as talc and oil free) powders making them ideal for sensitive skins. We even have some cosmetic surgeons who use our products on their patients!
Is Mommy Makeup comparable to other 'bare' mineral makeups on the market?
Mineral Powders are naturally oil-free, talc-free, and fragrance-free making them ideal for sensitive skins (and for women who find their skin going through hormonal changes). They also give nice coverage but feel weightless on the skin. However, most mineral powders on the market today are loose powders, making them a MESS! That’s why Mommy Makeup’s mineral powders are all PRESSED… so you get the benefits and coverage of mineral powders with on-the-go convenience and NO MESS!

What would you use to remove the eyeliner?
It is best to remove our Stay Put Gel Eyeliner with eye makeup remover. There are two that I like:
Neutrogena Oil-Free Eye Makeup Remover
Almay Hypo-Allergenic Eye Makeup Remover Pads, Non Oily

I like the Neutrogena for when I’m home or when I work on clients and the Almay pads for travel. Both are oil-free and do the job. Please remember to clean your eyeliner brush with them and then rinse the brush with water.

What is the best way to wear Stay Put Gel Eyeliner on my bottom lashline?
If you want to wear liner on your lower lash line, try using the remnants left over on the brush after applying it on the top lash line. Do not re-dip the brush and apply to the lower lashes… just use the amount left over on the brush after applying it to the top lash line. Also be certain that you use the Taklon pointed definer brush and place it UNDER your lower lashes and THEN make little dashes and dash it on.

Also clean your brush with eye makeup remover after applying the liner (to both eyes). Then be certain the brush is completely DRY before applying again. If there is any eye makeup remover still on your brush it can effect the wearability of the liner.

I am just pregnant, I'am writing to ask if I can use your products during my pregnancy?
Yes! You can absolutely wear Mommy Makeup while pregnant. I wore it for my entire pregnancy and since then with my second daughter. Please feel free to look over our products and if you have any specific questions we will be happy to answer them.
Have your products been proven safe to pregnant women?
All Mommy Makeup products are allergy tested and suitable for sensitive skins. All our mineral powders are oil-free, talc free, fragrance free and paraben free. I am the founder of Mommy Makeup and wore all of our products during my pregnancy with my second daughter and I am happy to report that she is now a healthy, happy and incredibly smart 4 year old :-)
