I saw a friend from high school at Target recently looking exactly just like any new mom would: Tired, tired, and tired. She asked me how I looked so fresh-faced, and assumed it is because Olivia is old enough to be sleeping through the night. I assured her this was untrue, I still do not get enough sleep but I did discover certain products that are part of my daily face routine that keep everyone fooled. I am very low-maintenance with my beauty regimen, and these essentials keep me looking decent.
NARS blush in Super Orgasm @ Sephora
Neutrogena pressed powder with SPF @ Target
Shu Uemura eyelash curler from the Shu Uemura boutique in SF (also sold @ Sephora)
Maybelline Lash Stiletto mascara @ Target
MAC lipglass in Pink Poodle @ the MAC store
This is what is in my makeup bag and I only use a little bit of each. My whole face routine takes all of five minutes and that is a good thing because really that's about as long as the little monster will give me.
