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.
We are now certified with PETA's "Beauty Without Bunnies" program as Cruelty-Free, and for many of our products, certified vegan.
We have never tested on animals, but now we're certified with PETA. Yeah!
I know we are all busy and forget sometimes...
BB creams (and CC creams for that matter) have been all the rage for a while now.
And being that Mommy Makeup is the Best Beauty for Busy Women we have received several inquiries asking why we do not have our own BB cream.
The answer is quite simple... "I'm just not that into you".
There is a saying when you look good, you feel good.
Sometimes this is true and some times not.
I think it is important that we find a balance in this message for our daughters.
I am so excited to introduce a new member to the Mommy Makeup multi-tasking family:
This multi-functional gloss is long lasting, smoothes the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and leaves your lips feeling soft, full and supple.
It’s time for an upgrade.

Touch ups... I truly wish I had time for them. But, I don't. I am very excited to share how to achieve the Everlasting Eye with Mommy Makeup's NEW formulation of Any Wear Creme. Combine Any Wear Creme with our Stay Put Gel Eyeliner and you have the Everlasting Eye! Watch our videos and learn how to achieve Everlasting Eyes...
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!
We are sooooooo excited to introduce our NEW Volume Lift Mascara! It is truly a great addition to our line that we know you will LOVE!
As much as we may enjoy a tan look, tanning really is not good for your skin. We have all heard about the sun’s damaging rays and skin cancer warnings. Bronzer gives you a tan look without the sun damage.
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...
It is only natural for us parents to want our kids to think we are COOL, to be their "ROCK STAR". And at Halloween time many parents think by loading up their kids bags with candy they will become that "ROCK STAR" (and maybe they will) BUT I am here to tell you that it is not candy that rocks my girls' world... They think mom is a "ROCK STAR" because I FACE PAINT. And at Halloween time THIS is THHHHHEEEE "ROCK STAR" skill to have.
My favorite season is finally here! FALL!
Last week Mommy Makeup was a sponsor at the Fashion Forward Conference here in New York. Mommy Makeup was the beauty sponsor. There were about 25 of the top mom bloggers who were the models for the fashion show and Mommy Makeup did ALL the makeup applications on all of them! And there were about 200 bloggers total in attendance.
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.
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!
Our Barely Blushing Lip & Cheek Tint had its own cult following... then the raw materials were no longer available and we were forced to phase out the product :-(
[edit: June 3, 2014] This product is sold out. Check out our new, more modern and up-to-date version of our Barely Blushing Lip & Cheek Tint: Sheer Sticks Lip Stain & Cheek Tint
