As a mama of (almost) five, I have very little time to dedicate to skincare and makeup! But mamas
deserve to feel pampered and beautiful too, so I’ve decided to share my favorite cosmetics products
that leave my skin feeling fresh and looking alive, even after sleepless nights!
One of my all-time favorites is Laura Mercier’s tinted moisturizer with SPF 20 + Vitamin C and E! This
product not only provides protection from the Florida sun, but is the perfect base product for a natural,
no make-up look. Another plus is that it is extremely lightweight and features a sheer finish so it can be
worn solo or as a buildable base for foundation.
I tend to follow up my moisturizer with a medium coverage foundation, like Make Up For Ever’s HD
Invisible Cover foundation, and some blush! A lot of women tend to shy away from blush, but I’ve
always felt like it makes me look more awake, refreshed and sun kissed. I’m also recently loving Tarte
Cosmetics Shape Tape Concealer. After reading several good reviews online, I decided to give this
product a try and I’m so glad that I did. It’s a lifesaver when it comes to dark circles under my eyes in the
morning! To finish up, I apply a bit of mascara followed by my Burt’s Bees Lip Balm with SPF 15 and head for the door!
I love this routine because I can be done with my makeup in under 10 minutes and still leave the house
feeling confident in my skin. The moisturizer + medium coverage foundation duo is enough to cover any
temporary imperfections without feeling thick and cakey in my pores throughout the day. The blush
and concealer wake me up and add a pop of color to my skin that sometimes can feel dull when I first
wake up. As an added bonus, the moisturizer and lip balm both include SPF which protects my skin on
the go and has many added long term benefits.
