Hello Military Mom Talk Radio Listeners!

Thank you for tuning in to Military Mom Talk Radio today! Here is a little more information and some helpful links on our quick tips today.

DIY Homemade recipes:


Caffeine provides great antioxidants and tightens skin. Here is a quick and simple recipe for a Coffee Scrub. Try making an Eye Mask as well!

We talked about witch hazel but only touched on a few of its benefits. Witch hazel can be used in a number of amazing ways. It helps with acne, it reduced puffiness in eyes, tones skin, keeps skin moisturized, removes excess oil, soothes sunburns, soothes itchy skin.. and the list goes on! My favorite way to use witch hazel is simply putting it in a spray bottle and using it as a face mist. Add some steeped tea, rosewater or peppermint for a luxurious feeling mist.

Makeup Trends:

I am very excited about some of the makeup trends this fall. Bold brows, darker matte lips, no fuss neutral smokey eyes – so easy to get on board with these. If you want to ease into these looks, start small and layer layer layer.  For brows, try Maybelline Brow Define & Fill Duo $6.99

You can’t go wrong with the right tools. I love Anastasia Beverly Hills #14 dual sided brush $18.00. The spoolie end is perfect for lightening up brows that became too dark!

Love a bold lip but don’t know where to start? Try Revlon Just Bitten Balm Stain $5.99. Buildable color and no need to worry about fading.


DIY Zombie Makeup:

Last but not least, my very own Dead Sets for $15. Just in time for Halloween! These are perfect for beginner zombies, children and zombie collectors. Please feel free to contact me with any questions or comments!

Girl Expo 2015 Overview

Thank you so much everyone for attending one of my sessions at Girl Expo 2015! What an amazing group of girls you are! Here is some information to follow up on everything I discussed from products, videos and helpful websites to refer to.

Skin Care Session:

This website has a lot of great advice on acne and discusses the 3 step process like I had: acne.org

Makeup and Skincare gurus to follow on YouTube:

Wayne Goss Makeup Artist

Michelle Phan 

Julia Graf

Some of the homemade recipes I discussed and others shared:

Egg White Mask

Aspirin Mask 

Lemon & Sugar Scrub – for face and body(try if you don’t have any active breakouts)

Others were a band-aid Neosporin overnight and a natural peppermint toothpaste.

Remember your face likes to be sterile and doesn’t like anything touching it – I know it’s hard! So keeping towels, sheets, pillow cases and makeup brushes extra clean.


That was the quickest I had ever done a zombie! What a fun challenge!

Products I used were regular every day makeup, washable glue and pantry blood. I used a concealer 3 shades lighter than your skin, shaded in cheeks, temples, under the jaw and parts of the forehead with dark shadow. Shadow colors used were a dark red, blue, brown and black. Also try some green. Crush up shadow and mix with your foundation if you want to be a green or grey zombie. Shading tip: feel your face and refer to a skull picture to know where to shade.

I didn’t get to show you the splatter trick so I’ll like a how-to video below.

Here are some YouTube videos to watch and don’t forget to practice!

Petrilude Zombie  – he uses latex but you can use washable glue stick as well! If you’re not sensitive to latex, my favorite is Ben Nye.

Covering your brows with a glue stick!
