New Mommy Makeup Routine

Hey Ladies! This post is all about the makeup products I’ve been using as a new mom to help me get ready and look presentable, in no time at all. I wish I was the kinda girl that could leave the house with no makeup on, but I can’t. I’ve tried, and I just can’t. If I’m gonna be honest, I even wear makeup when I’m home with nowhere to go. In fact it’s rare that anyone will see me without makeup,even in yoga class (I know, I know!).

Having said all that, I literally have 4.5 minutes to get my makeup on these days before little Miss gets bored with her toys and needs my attention. So these products, some new and some I’ve used in the past, are quick, easy to use, and long wearing…because ain’t no mama got time for reapplying!!!

So, let’s talk about my new mommy makeup routine…

_mg_5688 Ok so the first product is of course base because I need me some good coverage! This Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue tinted hydrating cream is SO GOOD!. It’s got more coverage than your average tinted moisturizer, but still feels so light weight. You can apply it with just your fingertips or using a soft buffing brush, It’s that easy! The best part is it’s got an SPF 30. which means you can eliminate that step of your morning routine. There are so many shades to choose from so pretty much anyone can find their perfect match.


Let’s talk about eyes…this Kat Von D Tattoo Liner had been getting so many great reviews online that I just had to try it out. It literally stays in place ALL DAY LONG! No smudging, no running, and so easy to use. Side note: I can’t do a winged cat eye to save my life, but this product will work just fine for a regular line.

Next up is the Charlotte Tillbury Eyes to Mesmerize cream shadow in Marie Antoinette. I had been using this on and off for a little while, but once I became a mom this product moved up to my list of Holy Grail products. The colour is stunning and could work on anyone, and all it takes is a dab with your ring finger on your lids and you’re good to go! Couldn’t be easier or quicker! Which is exactly what I need these days!

This is a huge deal!!! As a new mom I am constantly washing my hands and let’s face it, I don’t have time to do my nails every two days, or the $$ to get them done professionally every week, so these polishes are a godsend! My favourite brand is the Gel Couture by Essie. With a beautiful range of colours and such sleek packaging, these are a total game changer!

_mg_5693Whether you’re a new mom with limited time, or are just looking for some quick products that will help you get ready in a hurry, I hope all enjoyed my “New Mom” favourite beauty products!
