Beauty Notes: Mom Makeup


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Tuesday, August 28, 2007 1:08 AM (Eastern)

mom makeup

Along with Mom Clothes, there should be Mom Makeup.

I already had one of my kids, and was pregnant with the second, back when I discovered beauty messageboards. Part of my makeup quest has always involved time. Quick application, minimal touch-ups or fuss...minimal shopping. Something affordable, both in terms of money and of time.

Here is a quick collage of the makeup I wore today. Top row, left to right:
  1. Tinted sunscreen. It's an old pic, from my old site, most of which dates from 2000-2001. You can see how long I've stuck with this same concept; it's much faster and easier to apply and blend than regular foundation and already includes SPF.

  2. Nars the Multiple in Malibu. This is relatively new to my stash. :D Before Malibu, I usually skipped blush, but this is so quick and easy to apply, after tinted sunscreen and before pressed powder. It lasts well too; no disappearing blush.

  3. MAC Blot pressed powder. The date on this pic is December 2003. Blot is, thus far, simply the best pressed powder I've found for oily skin. In the San Francisco Bay Area climate, I need apply this only once, in the morning, to keep my face from getting greasy all day.

Bottom row, left to right:
  1. Nars duo eyeshadow in Jezebel. The Nars duos are incredible time-savers, since they already contain two shadows that work perfectly together. Of the four duos I own--Babylon, Ireland, Island Fever and this--each contains a perfect lid shade, paired with an ideal crease shade. These keep well too; they don't turn hard and funny.

  2. Nars Mambo eyepencil. At first I thought, wha'? $19 for an eyepencil? I tried it mostly out of curiosity, plus I had no chocolate brown eyepencil after my Prestige Expresso got old. The more I use it though, the more I like it. It holds a lovely point and goes on, if not satiny-smooth, at least without dragging, and goes with everything, including the Island Fever and Ireland duos that I used deep grey liner with before. It's a quiet pencil, but with an odd bit of genius within.

  3. Dr. Hauschka #01 Amoroso lipstick. As much of a no-brainer as my previous go-to lipstick, MAC Strawberry Blonde, but still in production. Amoroso is a lovely coral red, works well with warm coloring, doesn't require liner, doesn't have too much transfer (I find that highly annoying), lasts reasonably well on, feels good on lips, and is next to edible, to boot.
