My Monday-Friday at home with the boys is typically the same. As a mom, I quickly learned that keeping a tight schedule is the best thing for my babies, and for me to be able to run my household effectively & keep my sanity!

So after the boys are fed, playtime is over, and Mason goes down for his morning nap, I’m able to eat my breakfast and then get ready. When I’m in ‘mom-mode’ I want to be comfortable and effortless in what I wear, and how I do my makeup. I barely have time to get ready sometimes and I usually feel rushed. So my mommy morning makeup routine is quick, easy and natural. I just want to feel put together (and not scare my husband when he comes home from work too – haha!).

What I pictured above may seem like a lot of makeup, but it’s really not. I don’t use all of those products everyday. I showed 2 blush options, 2 lip options + 2 highlighter/concealer options. I wanted to show you what I typically go for, depending on how I feel that day. Sometimes I want a cream blush, sometimes I don’t. Sometimes I need more coverage – so I may use both concealers, etc. I also wanted to show you my go-to everyday makeup brushes. I have MANY brushes, but I find I reach for these the most. And I definitely love doing a simple makeup look using peachy-coraly tones. I feel I look more refreshed when I use these type of shades with my complexion.

What’s in my cosmetic case?

January 08, 2015

I’m constantly changing my cosmetic case and what’s in it. Currently, this is what I have inside…

Cosmetic Case

Petals and Pumps

Cosmetic case:  “In Case of Emergency, Put Mascara on Yourself Before Helping Others.” I received this case from a dear friend of mine, and it’s special to me! It fits a lot (as you can see) and it’s just so cute!

Business Cards:  Yes, there are business cards in my cosmetic case! I have business cards stashed in every handbag, clutch, diaper bag and cosmetic case I have…You never know when an opportunity arises. Gotta be prepared.

Lip balm:  Eos lip balm is a MUST! I can’t help myself. And neither can my son Liam, who’s 2. When he finds the colorful egg-shaped balm, he can’t keep his little hands off of it. The lip balm is moisturizing, natural, fruity + smells good.

{ that little hand in my shot, going for the Eos lip balm! :) }

Travel size cream:  There’s always some kind of travel cream in my bag. I wash my hands a billion times a day, and this ‘Ultra Repair Cream’ is perfect for nourishing my hands throughout the day.

Mally Beauty Evercolor Eye Liner:  I had given up on eyeliner until this one came into my life! The colors are beautiful. They are so creamy + easy to apply. They are truly bulletproof. And I’m starting to hoard these! » shown in “Lucky Penny.”

Amazonian Clay Blush:  Tarte is one of my favorite brands. And in my opinion, they have the best blush. This brand is built upon offering non-toxic, eco-friendly beauty products, that deliver! » shown in “Blissful.”

Chubby Shadow Stick:  Because you never know when you need a little touch-up! This one is neutral + has a little sparkle. So I can pop it on my lids anytime. » shown is “Bountiful Beige.”

Butter Gloss:  This lip gloss has been all over my instagram. It’s one of my new favorites, and is part of my December Beauty Round Up Series » see post here. » shown in “I Believe.”

Highlighter:  Obsessed with a couple of highlighters…this is one of them! This is what I love about it:  It’s soft glow, creamy texture + beautiful “dewy” appearance to the skin.

Marc Jacobs Spray Pen:  The perfect fragrance + size to pop into your bag. Because who doesn’t need an extra spray throughout the day?! ‘Daisy Eau So Fresh,’ is flirty, fruity, fresh + a little musky all at the same time. One of my faves!

Sample Size Mascara:  Admittedly, this is not my favorite mascara. But I keep little ones like this handy for touch-ups, or in case I left my house without mascara on. I hate when that happens.

Naked Lip gloss:  This is my first and only lip gloss by urban decay. But it won’t be my last! I really like the color + the way it looks and feels on my lips. It’s conditioning, long-wear formula is great. » shown in “Sesso.” a shimmery-rose shade. Part of the “On The Run” palette.
