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