There’s a saying, "Necessity is the mother of invention". Well... it is also the mother of Mommy Makeup!
After being a professional makeup artist for over 15 + years, I had the privilege to work for and with some of the best brands and talent in the beauty industry... THEN I gave birth to my first daughter and I found that I barely had time to brush my teeth let alone put on my makeup!
About 2 weeks after her birth, I had my “light bulb moment”. I lined up all the makeup that I usually wore daily and after I did there were 15 products in front of me - each with its own brush!! I knew right then and there that I would not be able to do all of this daily anymore. BUT I wanted to LOOK like I did. So... I figured if I needed something fast and easy that gave makeup artist quality results, surely other women did too!

Years ago, in what I sweetly refer to as BC (Before Children) I worked for a well known beauty brand at Bergdorf Goodman. Just down the street, on East 57th St, there was and still is J. Sisters, known for being the pioneers of the Brazilian Bikini Waxing in the United States.
And in those BC years, every 4-5 weeks I would schedule my appointment and 20-30 minutes later, after warm wax and fabric strip after strip, my bikini line was completely bare and silky smooth (sorry if this is TMI ;-).
This summer I made it my mission to find a more convenient and less expensive substitute... And I believe I did!
Wikipedia states"In the animal rights movement, cruelty-free is a label for products or activities that do not harm or kill animals anywhere in the world."
And so you would think that in this day and age that most cosmetic brands are cruelty-free… Well, think again... Many brands are cruelty-free in the USA but not around the world!!
There’s a saying... "People who have nothing to hide, hide nothing".
Think about it... More than anything else, this saying should apply to your beauty products!
When I shop online it frustrates me when a website or brand does not share the product’s ingredient listing! I find this A LOT with the big beauty brands and all I can think is "What are you hiding?
