When working with my clients I always find myself making what I call Beauty Analogies... Which is when I compare a makeup tip or beauty product to something that has nothing to do with the face or beauty at all.
When it comes to taking care of our faces, most of us have good hygiene... We wash our faces morning and night, apply moisturizer, exfoliate etc. But facial hygiene also involves your makeup! Especially your mascara!
This has been said before but it is worth saying again... It is important to get a new mascara about every 3 months! Even if you think your mascara is still moist enough, or there is still plenty of product in the tube, at around the 3 month mark you should toss your mascara and buy a replacement. Here's why...
At Mommy Makeup we are proud to say that all our cosmetics are Made in USA. Not all brands can say that... So, I wanted to take this opportunity to decipher what it means when I say, WHERE your cosmetics are made matters.
How can mineral makeup contain talc? I did not think this was possible? Talc can be drying to the skin.
Sensitive skins can (and usually do) have adverse reactions to talc.
But apparently the folks at bareminerals feel differently!
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!
It is hard to believe that I am the mother of a teenager! Yes, my older daughter is 13. I attended a PTA meeting at her school last week and a speaker discussed teens and their self image. The speaker quoted several studies proving that some of the biggest issues for teen girls is their appearance, how they look and they feel pressure to look "perfect".
The twinkle of starlight, the sun glistening on snow, the sparkle of champagne in a crystal glass… Now you can have these beautiful glowing effects on your eyes, cheeks and lips too with our new Holiday Shimmer Any Wear Cremes. These 4 new Any Wear Creme shades are so pretty and versatile it’s hard to choose just one!
Misty Mocha - A matte cool mocha beige. And just like that favorite latte, it’s a soft, warm and inviting color that can be worn on eyes, cheeks and lips. And just like the rest of our Any Wear Creme, Misty Mocha is waterproof, smudge-proof, oil-free, and paraben-free.
In this video you're going to see me start out completely scrubbed face with not a stitch of make-up on to go to make-up artist quality results in only six minutes. And I do this using 7 of our Mommy Makeup Multitasking Products.
