Being a mom is super rewarding, but can also be taxing… mentally, but physically too. And many of you moms know days can be chaotic and hectic with very little sleep. Without skipping a beat, you go about your day sleepy, and you look the part too! I find that even if I cannot take a full shower – taking a few minutes to wash my face and put on my makeup essentials can make me feel 100% better. It makes, at least me – feel more confidant and refreshed and ready to take on another day, whatever it may bring.
There are five makeup essentials that I always use daily, no matter what the day brings – foundation, eye shadow, mascara, blush and something to make my lips shine! If time is limited, these are the products that I always choose to complete my look. With more time, of course, or if I want to fancy up, I’ll add to them, but that is a different post!
Of my five makeup essentials, some are recent finds while a few I have been using for several years that I don’t see myself changing anytime soon. I was lucky enough to have a full makeup tutorial/ make-over at Sephora about a year ago. It taught me quite a bit and allowed me to find exactly what fit me and what I personally liked. Out of that experience I came across a new foundation and blush I adore now. The eye shadow, mascara and lip products I use are tried and true to me and have been in my collection for at least three to four years or more.

Below are my favorite essentials:
Make Up For Ever Ultra HD – I came across this just recently and have fallen in love and don’t see myself changing anytime soon. It’s fast and easy and looks fantastic. I can put on a light layer or if I am feeling like covering up more, a heavier layer evens my skin out even more.
- Eye Shadow:
bareMinerals Silver Lining or True Gold – I have used these two shimmery neutral colors for more than five years now. I just can’t change. They go with absolutely every piece of clothing I own. They are fun, but can also be used in a professional setting as well.
Estee Lauder Sumptuous Knockout – This is another product I have been using a very long time. I have tried many many different mascaras, but I keep coming back to this particular one. It just lengthens and fans out my lashes just the way I like them.
NARS – This blush is fairly new to me in the past year. I was actually given a few different colors as a gift and love it.
eos Shimmer Lip Balm – I use this everyday, multiple times a day. I have always loved the eos lip balm, but the shimmer line has put it over the top for me! I use clear shimmer everyday and if I do happen to want more color I love the Sugar lip colors and I just put it on top.
These five essentials complete my look, give me confidence and allow me to conquer my day!
