New cosmetic line tackles the national debt

"Do good, look great." That's the mission of the new cosmetic line, MakeUp America!

The D.C.-based brand is helping pay down the national debt with its proceeds, one dollar at a time. For each product purchased, MakeUp America! will donate one dollar toward paying down the national debt - which is $19 trillion and growing.

Co-founder Randa Fahmy was inspired to launch the makeup brand to shine a light on the debt's impact on women's lives. Women have been balancing their own checkbooks for years and Fahmy says it's time for women to unite and balance the nation's checkbook.

In honor of Presidents Day, MakeUp America! officially launched their website on February 20, 2017.
