Mommy's Project 52:40 Natural

A lot of work goes into having a natural look.  My goal is to look naturally polished at all times.  I don't always accomplish this goal... but I try;)  I already shared with you the brand of face wash I use... so I thought I would share a few other products that I use a lot as a mom.

My favorite everyday "mom make-up"...

1. bareMinerals ORIGINAL SPF 15 Foundation
2. Maybelline Great Lash Mascara
4. Burt's Bees Lip Shimmer - Peony
5. e.l.f. Studio Blush Tickled Pink

Most of these I pick up at Target or CVS.  1) I usually order my mineral foundation powder on Amazon or pick it up at Ulta.  I *LOVE* that stuff!!  It has amazing coverage without looking cakey or streaky like liquid foundation.  It also takes about 20 seconds to apply in the morning... which is usually about all I have time for.  It also doesn't feel like I have on any make-up.  2) I've been using great lash mascara since I was a teenager after I read in Seventeen magazine how that's the mascara that professional make-up artists use the most.  BTW, I have no idea if that's true, but do like the mascara.  3)  I picked up this eye shadow stick a few months ago at CVS and I love it.  It takes me no time at all to smear it on and rub it in with my finger.  Amazing and I love the way it accentuates my eye color.  4) My lips are ALWAYS dry, which is why I use what is basically a tinted chap stick. It also doesn't show up too much when I give Ava lots of kisses...  5)  I'm not as overly opinionated about my blush as I am about the rest of my make-up.  I buy this because it's consistently inexpensive and it's a nice color on me. 
I wash and condition my hair with Herbal Essence Color me Happy (I'm a blond-a-holic...). For styling I use a little Aveda Smooth Infusion Glossing Straightener in my hair before I blow dry it straight with a round brush.  I have a Conair Infinity Ceramic Hair Dryer, which is not my dream dryer.. but it works better than most.  I use a little Aveda control paste to finish it off.
On my fingers and toes I use a Seacret Nail Care Kit.  I picked this up from a kiosk in the mall one day when I was feeling particularly 'mom'ish.  Turns out you can get it for 1/2 the price on Amazon... but I'm happy I discovered it because it really works well.

It makes my nails shiny, my cuticles soft and gives my hands a natural look without any polish.
