If there’s one thing moms would love to change about their routine, it’s probably not having enough time to do your makeup. Well, we’ve sussed out a few releases that will make your makeup routine a breeze – and stay on with minimal need for touch ups!
Marc Jacobs Highliner
These waterproof, extreme wear eyeliners glide on amazingly smooth and can be used to smudge and layer for an instantly graphic look. All of the matte and shimmer hues are intensified by a super-rich pigment made for the water line and the pigment payoff looks great on the top lash line too. Lay it down on your eye and double down on colour with the malleable formula that gives you precise application, then sets in place for all-day wear. Use the shade Blacquer for an intense look or cool browns like Irony or Earthquake for a more natural effect.
Available at Sephora for $38.
NUDESTIX Nudies All Over Face Color
Meet the monochromatic multi-tasker of your dreams, the NUDESTIX Nudies All Over Face Color. These dual-ended, soft colour balms come with a stippling brush, are long-wearing and simply effortless to blend with your base makeup. The Korean Gel technology lets you use it as a blush or bronzer to contour your face, add a simple flush of colour on the eyes or put it on your smackers as a natural lip colour. Go crazy with the glow using the shimmer sticks and accentuate those cheekbones!
Kat Von D Everlasting Liquid Lipstick
Kat Von D’s Everlasting Liquid Lipstick range recently expanded; their New Nudes collection includes everyday colours like Hawkwind, a nude sienna that will go with all eye looks, Ophelia, a light peachy-orange nude perfect for summer and fall, and from the bolder collection, new addition Lovecraft is a mauvey pink nude that every woman needs in her collection. If you haven’t tried liquid lipsticks yet, it’s time to hop on the matte trend. Kat Von D’s high-pigment shades give you instant, full-coverage application and a comfortable true matte finish you’ll fall in love with!
Available at Sephora for $31.
Tarte Clay Stick Foundation
Featuring their miracle ingredient Amazonian Clay, Tarte’s new Clay Stick Foundation is long-wearing, quick and concentrated – its powder-to-liquid formula melts into skin for medium-to-full coverage, leaving a natural finish that looks and feels just like your own skin. The micro-encapsulated powders burst with your body heat to keep you shine and cake-free all day. Amazonian clay is a total skin balancing powerhouse that hydrates and mattifies according to your skin type and its guilt-free blend means there’s no harsh chemicals like talc, gluten, sulfates or parabens in your buildable, creamy coverage.
Available at Sephora for $64.
CoverFX Perfect Setting Powder
The Perfect Setting Powder is an innovative talc-free, universally flattering translucent loose powder that sets makeup and creates an airbrushed finish by refining and softening the appearance of skin without drying. This ultra-lightweight, silky-soft loose powder blurs imperfections, sets makeup, and creates a refined, soft-focus appearance. It harnesses amino-acid-coated mica that helps it blend seamlessly and evenly, giving it an exceptionally smooth-to-touch texture that doesn’t appear cakey, which adheres to skin for long-lasting wear and absorbs oil without triggering or exacerbating dryness!
