I remember when my kids were very young. When my fourth child was born, I also had a two year old, a four year old and a seven year old. I was one busy Mom! I rarely wore makeup. When I did leave the house, I had like 20 minutes to shower and get ready and about three minutes of that was spent on my makeup. I had to streamline my entire makeup process. I could have definitely used this advice that celebrity makeup artist Sage Maitri shared with me.
Sage works with some of the busiest celebrity Mom's such as Molly Sims, Rebecca Romijn, Jessica Capshaw, Minnie Driver, Elizabeth Banks and Emily Deschanel. She knows her makeup, and has some great mom-friendly makeup tips that features some of my favorite COVERGIRL products. These multi-tasking and double-duty products are so smart.
For a busy mom, mornings can be the hardest part of the day! Concealer is mother’s little helper! Try COVERGIRL + Olay Simply Ageless Concealer, which brightens up your eyes for a wide-awake look while the Olay Regenerist Serum covers fine lines and wrinkles.
Time Saving Products
A product that contains more than one beauty benefit can be a real time saver. Try these three multi-benefit products from COVERGIRL:
- COVERGIRL Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation is a primer, concealer and foundation in one.
- For a quick pop of color on your nails try COVERGIRL Outlast Nail Gloss which contains a built in top coat.
- To cover up those dark circles, try COVERGIRL + Olay Concealer Balm which is a concealer that is also infused with emollient-rich serum.
Bath Time is a Must
For a busy mom it’s hard to carve out time to wash your face before bed. Try to sync your schedule with your children’s so you can make time to keep you skin fresh and clean.
A little lip color can go a long way and transform your daytime mommy look, to date night glam! Try COVERGIRL Jumbo Gloss Balm for a sheer pop of color, or LipPerfection Lip Color for a deeper more vibrant lip color. Both also have moisturizing ingredients which will keep your lips refreshed.
When you’re a mom, your life revolves around your kids. Whenever I have an afternoon with the girls, I like to spice up my day to day look by adding a little life to my eyes. I love Clump Crusher by LashBlast Mascara to really bring volume to my lashes. The water resistant formula is also great for any unforeseen moments.
Sometimes you don’t always have time for yourself, but it’s important to treat yourself, even if it’s something small. I always have my clients invest in a face masque that is meant to be slept in. Wake up with glowing skin, a treat for all, but especially a multi-tasking mom!
Al of the COVERGIRL products mentioned can be found at your favorite drugstore of mass retailer. Wouldn't your Mom love a great box or basket full of great makeup for Mother's Day? I know I do.
In honor of Mother's Day this Sunday, COVERGIRL is asking you to share on their Facebook page Head to http://facebook.com/COVERGIRL and tell them the all about the beautiful things your mom has taught you and the things you hope to teach your children.
Happy Mother’s Day!
