How to stay flawless for the mom on the go! Summer is pretty much here and with sports etc! There’s no time for an hour to get ready. Feeling a face full of makeup is probably the last thing you want. Here are some great products I recommend for the busy mom you are! Stay flawless on the go! Let’s get started… note: Please know, these are products I recommend based on the clients I worked with & from my own experience.
1. Clinique! I love this brand for the mom on the go! I worked for them full time for over a year. It’s the place for the day to day mom! I saw busy moms of all kinds walking in and out, daily! So why Clinique?
The product is hypoallergenic.
They have options for your skin type. If you’re a mom with redness like rosacea, they have that too!
Makeup and Skincare all in one brand.
Here are some great Clinique products to try.
•Clarosonic| This brush is my favorite to this day. You won’t believe how soft and gentle it is on your skin. I leave it in the shower, this way I don’t forget to wash my face. It’s been working great, battery last is awesome! It’s a great way to not skip washing your face. You won’t skip taking a shower, so by having it ready in the shower makes it a great life hack.
• High Impact & Lash Doubling Mascara | There’s not a day I didn’t sell these mascaras. It’s the perfect everyday mascara. It adds length to my eye lashes and I love it.
• Clinique BIY Blend It Yourself Pigment Drops | OMG! Clinique really knows their clients, especially moms. If you’re in a rush, turn your moisturizer into a BB or CC cream and done! You can get going with the busy day. For fuller coverage foundation just add 3 drops and blend well.
Clinique Fresh Pressed System | Another of their most recent De-aging system that can also be mixed with your moisturizer! So what is it? A Vitamin C System! Get up every morning, cleans your skin with a new fresh package cleanser powder, rinse with water and boost your skin with quickly adding two drops of their fresh pressed daily booster (which you can write the date on) into your moisturizer and go!! Repeat this every day in your morning routine. Quick and fast right? There’s actually a funny video about this great De-aging product for the busy mom you are. If you would like more information about this amazing product or “how to” to properly use it. I suggest visiting a Clinique counter! Clinique really focuses on training their employees about their product. Also, their site is really informative! Click here to learn more about this new Vitamin C System.
Here are the products + my favorites!
2. Bare Minerals. This one is a no-brainer. I could go on about the benefits of this brand, this is also a brand that has clients walking in and out. So why Bare Minerals?
Award- Winning Mineral Makeup!
Good for your skin
Here are some great Bare Minerals products to try.
Original or Matte Foundation Broad Spectrum SPF 15 | This is one of the products they’re known for. Did you know it’s made with only 5 mineral ingredients? It’s crazy I know! This nice foundation can easily be blended for your busy days. You can easily build up coverage, and I recommend using their brush that works perfectly well with the foundation. It’s a great foundation for days on the go!
Mineral Veil | Setting your makeup is important and making it quick & easy it’s the way to go!
Matte liquid lip color | Oh yes!! This has to be one of my favorite makeup products by Bare Minerals. The liquid lipstick is still a trend! Bare Minerals caught on just right. While I worked at a previous beauty counter. I always had mature women or moms that wanted a long lasting lipstick. As usual, before I suggest a lipstick I always asked if they’ve heard of a liquid lipstick? I showed them the benefits. Which are. Long lasting, feels lighter on the lips and stays in place! But why did I showed them Bare minerals liquid lipstick over the other brands? The HYDRATION! and easy to remove. I love liquid lipstick and I’ve managed to find my tricks and hacks to wear any liquid lipstick. However, this is a topic for the mom on the go and I’m sure you don’t want drying lips. These liquid lipsticks are just beautiful. Worth the try. + They got NEW Lip Matte Liquid Lipcolor! Exciting!!
Bare PRO | A little more coverage and long wear foundation? Zero liquid, no mess. Just something to go. It’s breathable and can you believe it’s 90% Vitamins and Minerals? Silky, just smooth. I love the finish look on the skin. So easy and quick to apply.
3.Tarte. This is a great brand as well. It’s also a favorite for moms just as much as young girls. Including people with sensitive skin. Their product is actually great for sensitive skin. Great quality. Did you know they have vegan deodorant? Well, now you know!
Why Tarte? Well, their site says it. High Performace naturals, offers some vegan and gluten free products.
Here are some great Tarte products to try.
Tarteist PRO to go palette | This is a very tiny, slim and lightweight palette version of one of their most recent PRO palette. I love this mini palette. While working retail, I suggested this palette for a gift, for the moms on the go or newbies jumping into makeup. Like young girls. It has 3 matte colors and 3 shimmers. All 6 shades are perfect for the day look & adding a little more to convert it to a soft evening look. The matte color is perfect for the crease, and the shimmers are also perfect for highlighting.
Tarteist PRO glow to go highlight & contour palette | What’s also more perfect than having something to add for the rest of the face that’s also slim and lightweight! Also the mini palette, but for contour & highlighting!
Shape Tape Contour Concealer | Oh yesss! AGAIN. I love the NARS Cosmetics concealers and this recent one by Tarte is just as good! Girl, you can’t skip trying this one. Long lasting, creamy and just perfect vegan-friendly concealer.
Amazonian Clay 12-hour Full Coverage Foundation SPF 15 | This is a great one for oily skin. I love applying it with a beauty blender! It’s so lightweight and gives a beautiful finish look. Perfect looking skin. Long wear and Amazonian clay is an ingredient, good vitamin A & B too, and gives a fade appearance of pores. Quick to apply, looks and feels great on the skin & you’ll be ready for your busy day! Worth the try, I’m telling you!
So why do I recommend these brands for the mom on the go?
Trendy- They have the new trends in the beauty industry, such as liquid lipstick! Bare Minerals is my favorite for more mature women or someone who dislikes dry lips. It’s a must! Clinique also has a few liquid lipsticks too. They won’t dry your lips either. However, I feel Bare Minerals adds more hydration. Tarte is just a great brand to try. Women of all ages walked up to me asking for Tarte while I worked at a previous cosmetics counter. I was surprised to find out by a client that Tarte is one of the very few brands that she can wear near the eyes without an allergic reaction! Pigments are awesome, and they recently launched individual eyeshadow colors. With that being said, I hope you found this post useful or helpful!

Do you struggle with eyelash curlers? Today I’m going to talk about my long term favorite eyelash curler, current favorite and a new one I’m trying. In my previous post about lashes + mascara (to read about it click here ) I talked about the time of my discovery about eyelash curlers, my favorite mascara, and even the tragedy I went through when I used a very cheap eyelash curler. Don’t get me wrong, some cheap stuff are good. I love saving! But I quickly learned not be so cheap when it comes to my eyes. Affordable sounds better! So I want to share with you my favorites and personal tips.
Let’s get started.
Note: Please know this post includes affiliate links. Meaning, If you decide to buy any resource through the link I provide to you. I get compensated at no extra charge to you! A more detailed disclosure policy is coming soon! Thank you for your support!
First of all, NO! I haven’t tried every eye lash curler. There’s too many! And if you read about my favorite mascara . You’ll discover why I’m very picky about my eyelash curler. The eyelash curlers I’ve found, keep my lashes curled all day, and when curling my lashes it fits my eyelid perfectly! Which is very important. This way you’re actually curling every eyelash, and not leaving a few out. I’ve notice that when you leave a few out, they don’t turn out evenly curled, so when using an eyelash curler that doesn’t fit the eyelid, you’ll have a harder time achieving that evenly natural curl look. When applying mascara to uneven curl lashes, it can also get messy. You’ll end up with a short lashes look. That weird, spider look.
1. Tweezerman! This eyelash curler has been my favorite for years now! Can’t go wrong with it, plus it’s so affordable. Pad is long lasting, hypo-allergenic, and silicone. This eyelash curler fits my lid perfectly! I personally love the ones that come in a pack. It’s perfect for a forgetful person like me. You don’t want to keep the same one forever. Take care of your lashes girl!!
2. MUD (Makeup Designory). Professional quality, also another of favorites! I like to switch between Tweezerman and this one. They both give me the same results. Both of the brands have silicone pad, and both fit my eyelid perfectly! Which is key to achieve those natural looking curl eyelashes.
3. Shiseido! This one is new to me. I’ve heard great things about it, so I decided to purchase it and try it out myself. This is a great one for my Asian girls. In fact, when I worked cosmetics, this eyelash curler was always selling. The material is great. However, Tweezerman remains my main!
Why do I love these eyelash curlers?
The pad is great quality. Which give long lasting curl results for my thick, straight lashes.
The metal construction is great! Fits the eyelid great, which is key when curling the lashes. This way, I can curl little by little to the end of the tips of my lashes. I start gently, and repeat as I go. I will talk more in detail about it in a future post.
Things I look for before I try a new eyelash curler, or do before curling my eyelashes.
I close it tight a good 2-3 xs before going to the eyes – This is my way of preventing any future accidents to my eyelashes. I like to squeeze the pad a few seconds before use.
Check the metal construction! Especially when trying a new one. Sounds weird, I know. But I’m very mindful about this! After accidentally pulling ALL of my eyelashes from my left eyelid, I now make sure the metal material, and the feeling of the grip when holding an eyelash curler is in good shape or quality.
Avoiding oils, hand creams, or anything that will cause my hands to feel greasy prior to curling my eyelashes.
Replacing my eyelash curler frequently, and the pad as well. Once it gets old, if you pay attention, you start to kind of force your eyelash curler to get tighter when curling, this can cause damage to your lashes! #protectyourlashes girl!
Clean any residue from previous use, and Sanitize! Can’t explain this one enough. I shouldn’t have to go into detail for this one. Just be mindful about it. When you’re curling your eyelashes, you’re getting very near to your eyes! Also, you don’t want something like, previous mascara residue pulling your lashes. You never know! It’s better to be safe.
Make sure it fits my eyelid! If it feels funny, I don’t bother risking it.
Remember, take care of your eyelashes to keep them healthy for long lasting, beautiful lashes. I hope you found this post helpful!
