Green is the New Black

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!

And with this in mind, I am very excited to share how to achieve the Everlasting Eye with Mommy Makeup's NEW formulation of Any Wear Creme.

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.
