Tired to Fresh {Mommy Makeup Quick Tips and Favorite Products}


Right now all the of my babies are home! Yay! I’m so happy to spend my days with them playing, exploring, learning and bonding. Unfortunately, I am not getting much sleep. My 7 and 5-year-old still wake up and 6 am. (They do not sleep in! Sigh.) My 10 month old still wakes up at night. So, when I wake up I look like a big panda bear!

The dark circles are real! This is my 5 minute makeup (trick) to go from tired looking to fresh and awake with 5 multitasking products!

Product #1: IT Cosmetics SPF 50 CC Cream

I love this multitasking product! It cuts down my face prepping steps. It has the SPF built in, so no need to apply extra sunscreen! It is very moisturizing so I am able to skip the moisturizer! And last but not least, it has amazing coverage to even out my dull uneven skin tone! A bonus to this product is that is it is infused with anti-aging skincare! Woohoo! Girl, this product knocks it all out in one step!

Product #2: IT Cosmetics BYE BYE Under Eye Concealer

This is my most valued secret weapon to cover my panda eyes (dark circles). My sister in law recommended this to me since we both have dehydrated and dark under eyes. This stuff is amazing! It has a slight salmon tint which combats my purpley blue under eyes. It delivers a ton of moisture and it is waterproof! This is a total bonus for us gals living in the humid Coastal Bend because my other concealers tend to crease, crack, and run! 

Product #3: Maybelline Lash Sensational Mascara

Lashes Lashes Lashes! Mascara is a must! It makes my eyes go from tiny and sleepy to wide and awake! My favorite at the moment is the Maybelline Lash Sensational in Blackest Black Waterproof. It lengthens and volumizes my lashes in one step and if we decided to hit the beach or pool last minute, I know I can dive in without coming out of the water looking like the creature from the black lagoon! 

Product #4: Benefit Dallas Blush

This is another multitasking product! It is a combination of bronzer, blush, and hint of highlight to give you a blushy sun kissed glow in one small product! #winning

Product #5: Neutrogena Revitalizing Lip Balm SPF 20

Living in Texas the last 5 years has taught me to protect my lips! Sunburned lips equals misery! So, I like to throw on a tinted SPF lip balm. It gives color, sun protection, and is very moisturizing! BAM! I toss it in my diaper bag and I am good to go for the day! 

I hope my 5 minute mommy makeup favorites help you simplify your beauty routine with these multitasking products! 

Let me know if you have any products you add or recommend to my routine!
