The Lazy Mom’s Guide to Looking Put Together- EvenWhen You’re Falling Apart.

Whether it’s pick up, drop off, or coffee with the ladies let’s face it, us moms let hair & makeup take a backseat. Here’s my guide to a quick 5 minute face to make you look alive, and completely natural. This is the most basic makeup look and it will definitely have you feeling a little more confident. Mascara goes a long way baby! We have to remember that we are still people, and it’s nice to look nice! My outfit is super casual and i feel like my earrings give it a cute pop that say “hi, I’m still fucking cool”. Earring purchased at Just Peachie Boutique.

I scored my little coach bag from the COACH factory store and it’s super versatile and matches pretty much everything. I love the gray jeans made by Democracy Clothing, which I picked up in Nordstrom because, they have a built-in panel with ab technology and if you’re a mom you need all the help you can get. I paired with a cute little burgundy sweatshirt and grey vest that I scored for under $20 at TJMaxx, and of course my Sorel Booties from DSW.

To get this fresh-faced look start off by using SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Gel, it is a must have winter staple and the bottle will last you 4-6 months. The main ingredient is hyaluronic acid, which is firming, hydrating, and plumping. Next, apply the Physical Fusion sunblock from SkinCeuticals. Yes! You have to wear sunblock, even in the winter. It’s great because it has a universal tint and gives you a light iridescent look, so it kind of acts like a bb cream too. Fake it till you make it with this totally awesome and blendable Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye Perfector with SPF 25, you can find it at CVS in every shade, do one eye and see the difference, people will think you got a full 8 hours of sleep.  I totally love this lip and cheek stick from MILK, which you can purchase at Sephora. It kind of melts into your skin and is easy to build. I used it on my eyelids too. Rule #1 in makeup: there are no rules. Dior Show mascara, is hands down THE BEST MASCARA EVER. I’ve been using it for a decade. LOVE. Lashes for days.

This is a look for the mom who just doesn’t have it in her anymore. It’s for the mom who just cleaned shit up off the carpet for the last damn time. It’s for the mom who has a pile of dishes in the sink and wet laundry in the wash that’s been there for 5 days and smells like a sewer in Bangkok. I got you sister. This is the first step. More cute outfits (with heels) to come, and tons more skincare advice and tips!
