Best Makeup & Skincare for Soccer Moms

Just because you are a Soccer Mom doesn’t mean you need to let go and stop making yourself look attractive and glamorous. You need to approach looking good as something you do for yourself and not for anyone else; it will make all the difference in helping you to feel motivated putting the time in. Looking good and vibrant should almost be second nature to you… not an effort, but effortless. After all, you we know you’d rather be a “cool” soccer mom than a boring one. Drop all your ideas about age and just enjoy being young! (I hear so many thirty-something moms who talk as though their youth is over… change that today!). This is how I get to keep the glow as a soccer mom. Here’s my list of makeup and skincare products that do the trick.

Best Mascara

Must have mascara, L’Oreal Shocking Extensions & Maybelline the Rocket Volum available at CVS Pharmacy @CVSBeautyClub. Both are good but I seem to use the L’Oreal Shocking more, the brush is good, and I see results in an instant. Very long lashes that is.

How To Travel & Jet-Set Pretty

Travel & jet-setting are some of my favorite things in life. I love going places and exploring the world. I love getting out of a routine into the fun adventures of the unknown. But I only like to travel when I’m feeling fresh and pretty. These are the skincare and makeup products that are my best travel company. My routine? I get to the airport showered, well dressed and with the perfect makeup. The challenge, however, is to stay like this for hours during a tiring flight with a flight full of dry air.

Simple cleansing facial wipes

How do I stay fresh and pretty when I travel? Well, Simple Cleansing Facial Wipes are a MUST for a fresh travel. I actually remove all my makeup before landing and re-apply my Simple Skincare Vital Vitamin Day Cream with SPF 15 and Simple Skincare Soothing Eye Balm. Then I use matte moisture tint SPF 15 & oil free because I hate looking shiny and oily anywhere, including on a flight. Then Jouer Cosmetic brightener in neutral is like concealer – it’s easy to use and fragrance free, so it conceals redness and skin imperfections on the go. Plus, it’s so small it fits perfectly in my makeup or travel bag.
