I have always been a lover of all things makeup.
From experimenting and creating different looks, to hiding unwanted blemishes, makeup doesn’t create beauty but it can help boost confidence!
Confidence is valuable. Especially for the mom who isn’t exactly feeling beautiful after a long night of little sleep. At this point, those dark circles underneath her eyes seem to be tattooed onto her skin. No matter what the case may be, putting yourself together in the morning can help improve your mood and set a better tone for the day.
I understand that makeup isn’t the only thing that can produce confidence. But if you are reading this post then you are like me and you enjoy makeup and feel better with it on; even if your going to just stay home all day.
So, I made a list for you of my 5 FAVORITE beauty products that are simple, affordable, and can pull you from drag to fab in under 10 minutes!

Maybelline BB Cream- This is my absolute favorite go to face product for many reasons. It claims to be an 8-in-1 beauty skin perfector that adjusts skin tone, blurs imperfections, and protects the skin with SPF 30. This face product hydrates and feels really light on the skin. It isn’t long-lasting, but it’s the perfect product for those casual days out, or normal days in motherhood where you are looking to enhance your look.
Loreal Voluminous Curve Mascara- Mascara is the one product I put on if nothing else. I have tried many high-end mascaras and none of them compare to this one by Loreal. It adds volume and length to your eyelashes without clumping or giving that overly added makeup look.
ULTA Eyeshadow Palette- In general, I LOVE eyeshadow palettes because of their convenience. The Rose Gold one from ULTA contains neutral shades that are good for all skin tones, and has the perfect blend of glitter and matte eyeshadows.
Maybelline Age Rewind Concealer- I own the current “best” high-end under eye concealer but I always reach for this one. It covers the dark circles under my eyes without creating creases from my wrinkles. It almost seeps into your skin and feels very creamy and brightens. Sometimes, if I am running late or I just want to go bare faced, I will apply some concealer because the classic mom dark circles have no mercy! Applying this will eliminate the “you look tired” comments… which of course I look tired, because I am tired! haha oh the joys of motherhood…
Revlon Tinted Lip Balm- I am not a fan of matte lipsticks that are in right now, and I don’t like glossy lip products either. For me, tinted lip balm is perfect because it is creamy and adds a little color to your lips. I love this lip balm because it has SPF 20 in it and smells so good! It reminds me of the good ol’ LipSmaker days when you carried around 20 different chapsticks of different smells!
There you have it. My favorite go-to mom beauty products that are simple, affordable, and can help elevate your look for the day.
