Happy Mother’s Day! In honor of Mother’s Day today I am sharing What’s in my Mom’s Makeup Bag. I saw Danielle from Danielle’s Beauty Blog write a post about what’s in her mom’s makeup bag. Like every post Danielle writes, I loved it and decided to write a similar post for mother’s day.
First of all, I should start by saying that my mom does not wear makeup on the daily basis. My mom only wears makeup on special occasions, so today I am not only sharing what she has on her makeup bag, but also her entire collection. She stores all her makeup in this red Loreal Paris makeup bag, that someone gifted her. My mom is a simple women, so I was not surprise to find only eight products inside her makeup bag.
My mom has the most perfect skin I have ever seen. Even though she does not spend hundreds of dollars on her skin regimen (in fact the only thing she uses is a face wash) her skin is soft,smooth and full of beautiful freckles. For foundation she has two products, both powders: Betina Oil Free Powder and Avon Ideal Flawless Powder. When she wants a more full coverage she uses the Betina Oil Free Powder and when she prefers a more light-weight foundation she goes for the Avon Ideal Flawless Powder.
Like I said before my mom does not use makeup on the daily, so she does not own any eye palette. On really special occasions she will just wear her Jordana Easy Liner for Eyes in Smokey. When she wants to look extra glam she would ask for me to do her eyes. Her favorite mascara is the Maybelline Lash Sensational.
When I saw the lipstick colors that my mother carried in her makeup bag, I was impressed. Her go to lipsticks are Maybelline Matte Lipstick in Ravishing Rose, which is a warm pink, and the Kate Rimmel London in 110, which is a bright red. Even though these are bright colors I have never seen a bright lip on my mom. She doesn’t actually wear these colors straight on the lips; she dabs a little bit of the lipstick on her lips and then blend it with her fingers. This gives a really settle and natural look.
Here are the swatches:
Top: Maybelline Matte Lipstick in Ravishing Rose
Bottom: Kate Rimmel London in 110
Happy mothers Day!! Let me know what’s your mom’s favorite makeup product!
