Face Time

Face Time


With a new school year upon us Mama has to make sure she gets her face on in time for carpool. I keep it very simple during the day. Elixir, BB Cream, under-eye concealer, chubby stick, and blush. For nighttime I like to jazz it up a little bit more while still sticking to a program that is natural looking and consistent. Here are my go to products for fall.

1) Clinique Chubby Stick in Ample Amber

  • Swipes on in 2.2 seconds. No brush required. Perfect in the crease and smudged down to the lashes.

2) Stila BB Cream

  • A hint of color. Broad Spectrum spf. Not too heavy. Not too light. Just right.

3) Maybelline Highlighting Concealer

  • I never ever ever leave the house without this on. Guilty as charged. No baggage for this girl!

4) Nuance Hydrating Balm

  • Kissable lips – great price. I also dab it around my eyes at night for extra moisture.

5) Nars Blush in Orgasm

  • Don’t we all want a little orgasm in our lives? This blush is a mainstay of all make-up gurus.

6) Maybelline SuperStay 10 in Berry Heavenly

  • For those days when simple gloss isn’t enough. This is for when you want people to think you don’t take yourself too seriously.

7) Caudalie Beauty Elixir

  • Every, and I mean every, beauty blogger out there swears by this product. It lives up to the hype. Spritz before putting on your face cream.


8) Benefit Speed Brow

  • Gets those creepers in line. No messy brows on this girl any more.

9) Bobbi Brown Lip Gloss in Buff

  • Stole it from my best friend late one night at a keg party. Have been buying it ever since.

10) Mac Shadow in Vanilla and Saddle

  • Saddle goes in the crease and Vanilla is for just under the brow. They’re a great combo.

11) Shiseido Eyelash Curler

  • It’s all the professional make-up artists use. Enough said.

12) Laura Mercier Shadow in Gold Dust

  • Gives eyes that va-va-voom! I use it just above the lash line all the way from the inner to outer corner.

13) Laura Mercier Cake Liner in Mahogany Brown

  • I’ve never been able to master eye pencils. One too many “Agh! I stabbed myself in the eye and now I will be a drippy teary mess all night long!” moments. For years I have used cake liner and a brush. Easier and safer.

14) CoverGirl Lash Blast Mascara

  • There are cooler mascaras out there. There are more expensive mascaras out there. I’m loyal to this one because it’s been loyal to me. It refuses to run. I like that.

15) DiorShow Brow Styler

  • Perfect for almost any color brow. It’s an easy fix for brows that are between maintenance.
