I keep thinking that “Mother’s Day” makeup must mean “makeup for the mature face”, but as I turn 32 this year “Makeup for Mom” could easily be makeup for me…scary thought! There won’t be any babies on Cosmetic Proof anytime soon, but I do have many friends who are young parents. I know that when I think there’s not enough time in a day, adding a child to the mix must cut that time in half so mothers everywhere, I applaud you! For my Mother’s Day inspired look, I went with efficiency with a bit of sex appeal. Yes, I said it.
This Wet n Wild Coloricon Eyeshadow palette in #738 Comfort Zone* was one of the first palettes I read about when I first started reading beauty blogs. It was classed as an absolute must-have for the quality and array of shades for just $4. Years later, I still agree. This palette is such an amazing value AND, it’s actually got some great shadows! The neutrals on one side and the wilder greens on the other makes this palette perfect for a mom on the go!
The Coloricon Bronzer with SPF 15 in #743A Reserve Your Cabana* feels so buttery and for a bronzer, isn’t all that shimmery. The shimmer is so subtle that I’m tempted to classify this as a face powder. I love that there is SPF in it though. I would literally dust this all over my child’s face if that ever became an option.
Although I wasn’t the biggest fan of the brush in the Coloricon Blush in #833E Mellow Wine*, the actual blush colour was a lovely matte rose shade. The #652 Dark Brown Brow and Eye Liner* proved to be a better eyeliner than brow pencil for me. The pencil was a little too soft to use in short, quick strokes on my brows, but worked brilliantly as an eyeliner. The Megalast Liquid Lip Colors have amazing pigmentation, but might be not be for everyone as this is one of those long-wearing lip colours that makes your lips feel dry.

A part of me wanted to do something with the green, but knowing my own mother, I know she would have chosen to use the browns as opposed to the greens just based on her skin tone. I also love that the lip colour really sets off the look with a little bit of extra sexiness. The whole look seriously took me 10 minutes at most so for the mom on-the-go, I hope this is a look that’s totally doable!
