When you’re a mom, there’s little time to look “perfect”

Here are a few products that will have you looking great and out the door in less time than brushing your teeth:

Tinted Moisturizers:

Tinted moisturizers are a great way to even out a complexion without too much worry. Most are infused with sun protection and ingredients that are beneficial for the skin. This one: Josie Maran Argan Tinted Moisturizer has spf 30 and Argan oil which helps tone, firm and soften skin. Bonus: it’s paraben-free.

Stick Foundation:

Use it to cover dark circles and spot apply to where you need it. This way you’ll save time and won’t get your makeup all over your little one when you go in for a kiss. Try: Bobbi Brown Foundation Stick

Cream Blush:

Fast and easy to apply, just use your fingers and blend. Blush will easily transform dull tired skin with a pop of color.  Look for a cream blush that can double as a lip color. Try Stila Convertible Color for Lips and Cheeks.  Any makeup item that doubles as another is a winner in our books.


“Tube” mascara is the way to go! It won’t run, smudge, clump or flake. At the end of the day no need for harsh makeup removers as you just slide them off. Apply it once and you won’t know it’s there, until the end of the day when the little one is hopefully asleep. Check out blinc Mascara.

Eye Shadow Sticks:

These little gems are a genius invention. On those rare occasions where you need to dress up the eyes, apply to the eyelids and blend with your finger. Your eyes will look pretty and no one will know it took you 30 seconds. Try a lighter color like: Laura Mercier’s Caviar Stick in Amethyst. It’s a gorgeous plum color that suits any skin tone and is mistake proof.
