back to school, changing the face of beauty ad


Moss Building & Design



By– Jeannine Miller (

I love all the back-to-school brouhaha every year. I enjoy the parent posts on social media which run the gamut from the emotional moms sending their first-borns to kindergarten, to the ‘don’t let the door hit ya on the way out’ parents.

I also look forward to the Back To School ad campaigns. I actually prefer them to the Superbowl commercials. (Gasp!) My favorite this year is the #changingthefaceofbeauty ads from Livie & Luca featuring the adorable Cora (seen above). However, they haven’t always been so wonderful.  Let’s take a look.

Cigs without latakia are so last year.

Yeah, if you want your kid to be made fun of.
