Mama Must-Haves - June

I love favorites posts, but I realize haven't tried that many "new" products lately. Sometimes it's not the new and different products that strike the most intrigue. It's the old stand-by's, the go-to's - the products you reach for when you know have a few more precious moments to get ready. So instead of a monthly favorites, I'm going for "mama must-haves." And they're not just for moms, of course. They're for anyone who's short on time, loves a great beauty find, and also loves to shop their stash.

Makeup

Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer - This old favorite never fails me. When exhaustion is inevitable, I love anything that can perk up my look instantly. I've gone between shade Light and Neutralizer with this one. Light matches me almost perfectly. I use it interchangeably as an under-eye concealer and redness reducer. Is that a thing? The neutralizer shade is more brightening for me and I love the fresh look gives my skin. Plus it's a breeze to blend in.

Becca Glow Gloss in Opal - As an Ulta Mastercard holder, (yes it's true) I rack up my Ulta points with everyday purchases. So every few months I cash them in and get free products. This Becca gloss was on sale when I got it and I'm in love. It's the perfect sheer nude that goes with anything and everything. It's comfortable, versatile, and I don't have another shade like it. My lip collection is 50 shades of nude and I am not ashamed.

Anastasia Sun Dipped Glow Kit - My Glow Kits were also a fabulous deal and I'm so thrilled with them. When really popular products eventually go on sale, I feel like I won the lottery. These highlighters are smooth, blend beautifully and compliment so many everyday looks. As with any highlighters, these can also double as eyeshadows. If you find a particular shade that doesn't flatter on the cheeks, apply it to the eyes!

Hair

L'oreal Blow Dry It Spray - This spray, all day every day. I stock up on this spray so I'm never worried if I run out. It's less than $5, cuts my drying time, provides heat protection, and reduces frizz. I have nothing negative to say about this one other than I wish it came in a bigger bottle! If you have thick hair and dread blow drying, you need this in your life.

Nails

Zoya Lauren - Zoya has officially taken over the majority in my nail polish collection. I've definitely paired down my polishes over the last year. I prefer to have less that I absolutely love, than stare at a huge assortment that just takes up space. Zoya Lauren is one of my most recent purchases and it is the absolute BEST pail shimmery pink. It's not too icy or silvery like many I've tried from the drugstore. It's got a beautiful, subtle shimmer that still looks sophisticated, feminine and flattering. If you're looking for the perfect nude pink, try this one you won't be sorry.

Skin

O'Keefe's Working Hands - Ok I get it, not beautiful. It's not about what's on the outside though! This hand cream has saved my hands from painful cuts due to dryness, uncomfortable tightness, and overall discomfort throughout our freezing cold winters and long after with constant hand washing. I just dab a bit of it on the back of my hands before bed and in the morning, ahh, sweet relief. I'll take a workhorse hand cream over a flowery scent if it actually helps my hands. I finally found something to keep up with all the hand washing and dishes I do as a mom of three. Mom win!

Itzy Ritzy snack bag in XOXO - I have so many prints of these bags, I am obsessed! They are fabulous for so many things like makeup, travel, purse organization, you name it. They wash beautifully (hang to dry) and come in so many prints there's something for everyone. My first favorite was XOXO, which I still love to this day. Also check out their wet bags for summer!
