Mommy Make-up

As a mom I feel lucky if I get to shower let alone put make-up on. However, ALL us girls sometimes just need a quick throw-it-on face so that we look somewhat presentable as we're running somewhere. So here is my 5 minute face:

1. Boots No 7 - both a moisturizer and light foundation to even out skin. LOVE this stuff!
2. Cover Girl concealer to cover up my lack of sleep. This one's not drying.
3. Tarte Cheek Stain is by far the favorite thing I use. It brightens up your face and 1 bottle will last you forever!

4. A nice neutral eyeshadow looks good on anyone. I like a little shimmer and this Lorac trio is awesome!

5. This Rimmel eyeliner is my 2nd fav product. It darkens your eye, but also leaves a hint of shimmer. In a huge hurry, I use this without shadow.

6. Lash Blast mascara - I used to go for the pricey stuff, but I used this on a whim and it stuck!

7. I had this Dr. Pepper lip gloss when I was 7 years old, so it's nostalgia that makes me keep buying it, but it also has a hint of red that is pretty

8. Last, but not least I love my Tokyomilk. I pack the Sugar, Sugar solid perfume in my bag so I always smell yummy!

There you have it. Pretty simple and quick!


  1. So funny to see a British favourite (No.7) be loved by someone outside of Britain. Do you have Boots?

  2. If you can afford just a little more, I swear by Bobbi Brown creamy concealer, it costs but goes such a long way....

  3. I also love solid perfume...Its so easy to use and it smells great:) Have a fantastic day, sweetie

  4. My beauty regime is always quick because I really can't be bothered piling on the makeup!

    I use YSL Touche Eclat as concealer (expensive, but worth it!)
    Maybelline XXL mascara (the massive yellow tube!) Its an amazing product!
    Clinique Sheer City Block - a lovely light tinted moisturiser
    Clinique blush pressed powder

    And that is the extent of my everyday makeup - most days I actually go without!

    Thanks for becoming my newest follower! :)

  5. Hello Amanda!

    Thank you so much for dropping by! I love when I see your comments on my blog.

    I'm right there with you. I'm also a mommy of 2 kids and time is precious... make-up I need to do it when I first wake up or I won't have time after that.

    Love your tips, especially the 1st product. I need to try it!

    I hope you have a great day!
