Top 5 Products For Busy Moms!




Happy Mother's Day!!!

In honor of today, I thought I would share with you my top 5 favorite products as a busy mom!
These products are all designed to speed up makeup application and/or extend the wear of your makeup so you don't have to worry about touch ups!!

1. Long Wearing Cream Shadows:
My favorite are the Maybelline Color Tattoos, but, I also really like the Rimmel Scandaleyes jumbo pencils, too. With the Maybelline, I find I do not need a primer for them to last all day, however, the Rimmel pencils usually do need to be applied on top of a primer, otherwise my oily lids will eventually cause them to crease.

2. Full coverage BB or CC Creams:

These are easy to apply, and some come with great coverage. My favorite is the Garnier BB Cream for Combination/Oily skin. It has a medium to full coverage formula that sits well on my skin. My only problem is that I can only ever find the Light/Medium shade, and the color is about 2 shades to dark for me, so I have to mix it with a lighter shade foundation.

3. Blending Sponges:

I ADORE the RealTechniques Miracle Complexion Sponge. I also have one that I found at TJMaxx, which is more similar to the Beauty Blender in shape. I love to use these, because they make quick work out of blending in foundation and concealer, and you only need one tool to do both. Also, even though they make quick work of blending, you still get a beautiful finish that has no brush strokes or odd textures.

4. Lip Stains, Balm Stains, Chubby Sticks and Tinted Lip Balms:
These are so easy to chuck on in a hurry, and are convenient enough to toss in a purse or pocket for quick touch ups on the go! I really love the Revlon Kissable Balmstains, and The Rimmel Show Off's.

And last but NOT least...
5. Setting Sprays:



My number 1 favorite setting spray is the ELF Mist & Set. I have been using this for years, now, and I have found that when I set my foundation with this, I can blow my nose, and not remove any foundation with the tissue!! The best part about this product is the price!!! It's only $3!!!

These are all products I've been using for years, now, and I can honestly say, I don't know what I would do without them... They are staples in my collection and will be for years to come!!!

I hope you enjoy this post! Leave me a comment down below letting me know what your favorite products are for your "Mom Makeup Routine!"

Hope you all have a wonderful Mother's Day!!!!
