Mom Makeup Routine

If you're a busy mom, then finding time to apply even a drop of makeup is challenging at times. Heck, finding just a minute to use the bathroom alone is tricky. There are days where I have just a few minutes to put some bb cream, concealer, and powder. Sometimes I still put on a full face of makeup. It just depends. Either way, I have a few of my favorite beauty items I wanted to share.

|-- when we travel, this is what I pack... plus my brushes --|

Some of these things have been favorites for years. Like I mentioned, I'll use any combination of these things on any given day. Sometimes it's just mascara and lip gloss... or else I feel naked.

Mom Makeup Routine

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue -- I went into Sephora asking for a new bb cream, and one of the sales associates recommended this. I went home with a sample, and the rest is history. This stuff is great. It barely feels like you're wearing makeup, and it has pretty decent coverage too.

M.A.C. Studio Finish Concealer -- most of my makeup items are things I've been using for years. This concealer is no exception. I wear the shade NW20 and use a tiny brush to apply the concealer precisely where I need it. I use my Skinfinish Natural to set everything, and it has great staying power!

Pixi Concealing Concentrate -- this was something I saw in a YouTube video, and it sounded good enough to try. I use this in the peach color for concealing under eye darkness. I love it so far.

M.A.C. Mineralize Skinfinish Natural -- this is a great powder that is very light and does a great job setting my BB cream. I've been using it for quite a while, and I still have a lot of product left. It's worth the money!

NARS blush/bronzer duo -- I have the full-sized Laguna bronzer, but I love my little travel sized duo for throwing into my makeup bag when we travel. The full-sized bronzer and blush are too big for packing, so this is perfect for on the go. The Nars orgasm blush is flattering for just about anyone. I've been wearing these colors for years.

Too Faced Shadow Insurance -- this is another item that I like buying in the mini size. I guess I'm a sucker for miniature items. Don't even get me started on my hotel toiletry collection. Anyway, this primer doesn't crease for me even after wearing all day.

Too Faced Boudoir Eyes Palette -- Don't get me wrong. I love my Naked palette, but this one is also great for a very natural and pretty eye. I also love the tin packing. Again, it's great for travel. There's a nice assortment of colors in this palette. You can play around and create quite a few looks.

Make Up For Ever Smoky Extravagant Mascara -- This mascara is fantastic! I've been wearing this one for quite a while. I actually think it was the free Sephora birthday gift one year. I've been hooked ever since. I have the mini size version of this. Sensing a trend here? You don't have to commit to any one mascara by trying the mini size first. Plus, it's great for travel.

Buxom Full-Bodied Lip Gloss -- I have this in the color 'Yes You', and I love the pretty neutral look to it. For some reason lipstick scares me a little. I do have a couple that I love, but I'm mostly a lip gloss girl. You can't go wrong with any of the Buxom glosses or polish.

Do you use any of these products?
