Makeup Must Haves: Mommy Edition

Hi all!

For these past 12 weeks, time has been my enemy.

I mean I don’t normally wear makeup to work daily but when I did, I had time to spend on beating my face.

SN…that sounds so abusive. Can we come up with a new term for slaying your face?

Antyway. My time is limited.

Because I have a 2 1/2 month old who gets upset when she can’t see your face.

So I came up with a list of my makeup must haves that I think will have speed up your makeup application to give you a nice little slay.

Since my time is limited I don’t reach for heavy foundations but instead I’ve moved on to Black Radiance’s BB Cream* – $5.99

Black Radiance True Complexion Bb Cream SPF 15, Honey Amber, 1 Ounce

Depending on the season, I’m in the shade Honey Amber & Coffee Glaze.

I don’t have major skin issues but this BB cream provides the perfect amount of coverage for my concern areas. Not to mention it’s easy on the pockets.


And for days when I’m in a major rush. I just apply concealer to my concern areas and blend it out.

My concealer of choice is La Girl Pro Concealer.*

Again this is another affordable option and these can be found in any hair store. The price for these varies. Online they go for anywhere between 3 & 5 dollars.

My shade range varies in these as well.

I can go between Fawn and Almond.


I normally wear mascara on a day to day basis and generally reach towards drug store mascara’s just to stretch my coint.

The two mascara’s that I reach for are

e.l.f. volume pumping mascara*

e.l.f. Volume Plumping Mascara, Black, 0.24 Ounce

Hello affordable options!

This baby is currently $3 on Amazon and can generally be found at the drugstore and online for less than $10. I normally stock up on these because I’m quite forgetful and let them dry out fast.

Maybelline New York Lash Sensational Luscious Washable Mascara*

Simply put this baby extends my itty bitty lashes something serious!

You can usually purchase this for under $10.

Lastly, LIP GLOSS.

I normally reach for 2 different lip glosses. One is very affordable and one is somewhat pricer.

The first one is Buxom Full On Lip Polish

I LOVE THESE. They have a minty smell and also help plump up your lips.

They also have 100 options!

The only bad part is the price.


I normally purchase 2 at a time because they can last you all year.

My affordable option for lip gloss is

NYX Butter Lip Gloss – Creme Brulee*

NYX Cosmetics Butter Lip Gloss Creme Brulee

These can run you about 9 – 10 dollars and are super comfy.

I often find these on sale in Walgreens so check your drugstore for great deals.

That’s it. I’ve been keeping it pretty simple most days. When I want to go full out and have more time I add in a bit more products.

What are some of your mommy makeup must haves?

Peace and Love ❤
