I have been a makeup artist for 12 years, but my love for makeup started long before that. I swore I would never lose my passion for daily makeup application just because I became a mom. Well three kids later, and I’m definitely re-evaluating my previous declaration.
Time as a working mom is limited, and I can almost guarantee one child will be pounding on the door screeching that they have to pee even though they had all morning to do so, and another child will be standing on a stool pretending to do her makeup while ruining my favorite MAC blush brush, all while I’m trying to slap some makeup on my face for the day.
I’ve definitely had to master the art of multitasking, reducing the amount of products I need and learning how to be quick without sacrificing my love for variety. Follow along as I share 5 beauty products every mom on-the-go should have.
This multi-use stick is amazing! It can be used on cheeks and eyes for a gorgeous summer glow. This product is cruelty free and vegan made with avocado and coconut oil. Talk about a JLo Glow!
Choose your favorite finish! For me, the easiest way to feel put together is with a bold lip. A matte texture usually has a longer staying power, so I alternate between Flat our Fabulous (a bold purple/fuchsia) Lady Danger (burnt orange red) and Whirl (a dusty deep rose). With hundreds of shades to choose from, you can’t go wrong.
Prep your skin with this delicious light weight hydration spray and spritz again to make it last. For effortless makeup and flawless skin, this spray has become my go-to! I love that it comes in travel size which is perfect for your purse. Ditch that compact and keep this to touch up instead. Your skin will thank you.
Also known as the “Flawless Face” sheer coverage- this is perfect for a natural, no-makeup look. I’ve used several foundations throughout the years and this by far is my favorite.
This hides dark circles and visibly smooths fine lines. Plus with vitamin E & apple seed extract, this hydra-smoothing formula keeps skin hydrated for six hours. This is a no-brainer for every mom. There is nothing worse than trying to hide those tired eyes on dry skin. With this moisturizer concealer combo, you will look effortlessly flawless.
