Is there Teflon® in my makeup? When folks think of Teflon®, they think of nonstick cookware… But not cosmetics! PTFE is trademarked as Teflon®, and although it was originally developed for cookware, it has been found in some anti-aging products and cosmetics. Mommy Makeup products do not contain any PTFE.
"Why do I need to wear blush in the summer with a tan?" As much as we may enjoy a tan look, tanning really is not good for your skin. We all know about the sun’s damaging rays and skin cancer warnings. Bronzer gives you a tan look without the sun damage.
Introducing our new shade of Stay Put Gel Eyeliner! HUNTER! It is a gorgeous rich hunter/forest green and it looks spectacular on any and every eye color! It REALLY does! It intensifies green eyes, brings out the gold and amber tones of brown and hazel eyes, and highlights blue eyes (SERIOUSLY!) How does it do this? Because Hunter is deep in color, it does all this with out over powering your natural eye color… In fact it actually enhances your natural eye color!
The change of season often effects our skin. But no matter what the season is, here are 6 skincare standards to live by.Being a makeup artist and having worked in the cosmetic industry for 20+ years; I am constantly given...
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".
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.
