My dad carried this picture of my mother, the All American California Girl, in his wallet during the War.
My mother was a new bride when my dad shipped overseas. She moved in with her parents while he was gone and wrote to him every single day. It was those kind of letters from their Sweethearts, that kept American Servicemen's moral up. It was what they were fighting for. It was what they wanted to get home to.
Maybelline set the stage for my family saga to play out on. Read my book, The Maybelline Story and the Spirited Family Dynasty Behind It and meet the family who gave the world beautiful eyes.
