8 Momiform Makeup Essentials









I by no means consider myself a "beauty blogger" I am the type of person that likes to keep my makeup fairly simple with lots of natural tones. I Do however know that over the years as I have learned more about my skin and makeup that there are just certain products that work way better on me than others. I ALSO know a good sale when I see it, and I don't know about y'all but I don't see sales at Sephora very often and by very often I mean like never. This weekend (Today the 30th - Monday the 3rd)  they are doin a Beauty Insider Event where you can get anywhere from 10-20% off of your purchase online! If you're not already a Beauty Insider you can still sign up real quick here. It's free and it's nice getting points for items I'm already going to purchase anyways ya know?

So these 8 items are what I call my momiform makeup staples. Each one plays a critical role in looking energized and awake, put together in a rush, AND stays when I'm sweating chasing kids at the park....OR when a sticky jelly hand grabs me by the cheeks to watch the most important part of Scooby Doo.... Mom life is a sticky job and I love it. Side note: I don't typically wear makeup to the gym but if it's already on I leave it and these products look just as amazing after a good sweat as they do before. (Just wanted to emphasize they really do last).




1. Naked 2 Palette I first fell in love with the original Naked Palette (On sale for $27 just restocked so run! It sold out yesterday!) because of how pigmented the colors are. You really do not need a lot at all to do a quick swipe (I like to do a mix of half baked and snake bite) and look like you spent a lot of time.

2. Estee Lauder Illuminating Primer I love the Porefessional primer and alternate depending on how my skin is that day. The Illuminating primer though gives you that dewy all over look that I LOVE!!! it just makes your skin look so healthy! To really get the full dewy look, mix it with your foundation before you put it on. Game changer!!

3. Better Than Sex Mascara My eyelashes are small k? Lol something I've accepted and typically wear strip lashes every day (these ones) but there are times I just don't feel like putting them on. This mascara y'all is magic! I don't know why it's so different than the others I've tried but it really makes my lashes look way more full and long. magic. 

Quick Lash Tip: Before I put my false lashes on, I always put mascara on first to make them blend. Putting mascara on after will make your lashes not last as long.

4. Boi-ing Brightening Concealer Ok. If you are wanting one item to try. This is it. This concealer makes long sleepless nights like they never happened! Buh-Bye dark circles!! I've tried LOTS of concealers and this one does not crease or wear away throughout the day. It stays on honey!!! I can't say enough good things about this concealer. It really brightens your eyes and makes breakouts hard to find. I like to use the light underneath my foundation for a bright and awake look.

5. Laura Mercier Finishing Powder This is one y'all have probably heard several times and for a good reason. I've had setting powders that look chalky on or make my face feel dried out. This is super lightweight and is what I lightly swipe on focusing on my T-zone to help set the look after contouring. I also like to put a tiny tiny bit under my eye to prevent any eyeliner from running down and really just secure my concealer. It lasts a  long time because a little goes a long way. Definitely worth getting.

6. Glitter Glue Eye Primer I was first introduced to this when I was competing in the NPC bikini division. I needed something that would really hold a dramatic eye well and y'all THIS. IS. IT!! I promise you, your eyeshadow is going no where! I use it for dramatic eyes or under more simple ones. Living in the south it is very humid, so a good eye primer is key. If you struggle with oils too this will help prevent your eyeshadow creasing. 

7. All Nighter Setting Spray Speaking of going no where! If you have a special night, are going to be sweaty at all, or just want to make sure your makeup lasts allllllll the darn day the setting spray is easily my favorite. After you finish your look just use a couple sprays to seal everything and viola. You're gorgeous babe!

8. Double Wear Foundation Saving the best for last!! My skin is extremely sensitive. This is the only foundation that doesn't make me break out. They have ones with SPF in it but I use the original and just put my SPF underneath before priming and etc. I just love this foundation. It goes on so smooth, has great pigment, and lasts all day.This is the foundation I share with all my friends and they all love it now. I wear the shade Dusk
