Mornings are the hardest part of my day. As painful as waking up in the early morning hour is, there is also a lot going on as I have to get the whole family ready as well as making sure that we leave with everything we all need for the day in about an hour or less.
To make it easier for myself, I try to keep a pretty simple beauty routine and one of my favorite brands that offers a diverse range of options is COVERGIRL. To help moms this Mother's Day, we teamed with COVERGIRL and celebrity makeup artist Sage Maitri who shared some mom-friendly makeup tips to help make our mornings even easier.
Momtrends: What are the best products that a busy mom should use?
Sage: I think COVERGIRLs Jumbo Gloss Balms are perfect for busy moms! The gloss balms are easy to apply, offer a hint of shine and have moisturizing shea and mango butters to nourish lips. Also, COVERGIRLs Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Glossit has a quick dry formula and a top coat built in so moms can skip a step completely and save precious minutes.
Momtrends: Can you highlight a makeup routine using COVERGIRL products for a mom?
Sage: First start with COVERGIRL Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation. This foundation is such a time saver because it combines foundation, concealer and primer in one formula. It will leave skin looking flawless all day! As moms we dont have time to touch up often so selecting a great foundation like this is crucial! Next, apply Clump Crusher by LashBlast Mascara and LipPerfection Lipcolor and youre ready for the day! A simple and chic look that can go from day to night!
Momtrends: What are some of the nail trends for summer?
Sage: I think summer is all about bright and glossy nails. The brighter the better! The cool thing about the Outlast Stay Brilliant Nail Glosses is that they have a very shiny topcoat already built-in so we can all easily achieve the glossy manicure thats all the rage! They are also available in a wide range of colors so you can pick the shade that best suits your personal style.
Momtrends: In your opinion, what is the best product for moms in the COVERGIRL line?
Sage: I believe the Outlast Stay Fabulous 3-in-1 Foundation is the best product for moms. Not only does it combine the foundation, primer, and concealer into one time-saving step but it will last all day without touch-ups! Perfect for busy moms on the go and fits perfectly in your purse or diaper bag!
