Mother's Day Beauty Gift Ideas

Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's and mama-to-be babes! I have teamed up with my mom to share some Mother's Day beauty gift ideas. My mom and I have some skincare and beauty products that we use daily and know it will be a treat to gift to you or your mama! I am so lucky to have a supportive and loving mom who loves me no matter what.

Mia's picks:

Chanel Les 4 Ombres:

-This palette is perfect for any mother (or yourself) because the palette is compact and easy to travel with. You can create a variety of looks with this one palette. The palette I have is in the shade Tisse Rivoli. These shades are perfect for anyone who loves their nude hues.

Glam Glow:

-Treat you or your mother to some masks that do wonders for your skin! My favorite is the SuperMud because it clears your pores and acne within a couple of days. Another one I love is the Gravity Mud which also comes in a glitter mask form. This mask makes you feel youthful and happy!

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist

-I use this skin mist all the time to add some glow back into the skin. For those that have dry skin and need to bring some hydration back into the skin, this is perfect! I apply this spray after makeup to make my foundation not look cakey. I also use this spray when my skin just needs a boost of hydration and glow. Plus, Tatcha uses skin loving ingredients and their products always smell like you're at the spa!

Farsali Rose Gold Elixir:

-What mother does not love skin oils and gold?! This is perfect for the mom that loves both. This oil from Farsali has chunks of gold that soak right into the skin. I love this oil because it adds glow and hydration to the skin. I love to apply this as either a moisturizer or mixed in with my foundation to my skin glowy.

Buxom Full on Lip Polish:

-My mom and I both love this lip gloss so much because it plumps the lips and adds the perfect amount of shine. The plumping effect is not unbearable and goes away after a few moments. My favorite shades are Amy and Clair. Amy is the perfect sparkly peach toned nude and looks great on every skin tone and on top of any lipstick shade. I love Clair because it has a mauve tone that looks great by itself and also has sparkles that doesn't look like kid's lip glosses.

My Mom's Picks:

Bobbi Brown Nude Drama Eye Shadow Palette:

-I love this eye shadow palette. It is my go-to eye shadow for both everyday use, as well as going out. The colors are in the nude tones and have both matte and shimmer. I love everything about it! Long lasting and pigmented.

Bobbi Brown Brick Highlighter:

- Do you see a pattern here? With dark hair and eyes, Bobbi Brown's colors seem to work well for me. This highlighter is terrific- not to much shimmer but just enough to feel bright for Spring.

Artis Foundation Brush:

-Mia introduced me to this brush (thank you Mia). I love how well it works. I actually put my foundation on to the brush head and then use all over my face. The coverage is smooth, even and well blended using this brush. One of my absolute favorite items I can't live without.

BeautyCounter Touch Up Skin Concealer Pen:

- This concealer was part of the Flawless in 5 pack and I love how the applicator clicks on and produces just enough product each time. Blends easily and looks great on. And Beauty Counter products are safe and chemical free.

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue Tinted Moisturizer Hydrating Gel Cream:

-I have used this product for years and love the coverage and hydration. With freckles I have always been conscientious of using a heavy foundation. This tinted moisturizer does the trick- hydrates my dry skin and provides an even, smooth tinted coverage over my face. This product feels light on the skin and absorbs quickly and easily! Love it!

Benefit They're Real Mascara:

-I have tried so many mascaras, so many different brands, brush styles, etc. and nothing works as well and looks as good on, as Benefit's They're Real. This is hands-down my favorite mascara. Easy to apply, elongates the lashes, keeps them full and separated (no clumping) and stays on all day (even at the gym). Can't say enough great things about my go-to mascara, it is the best!

Huge thanks to my mom for willing to be featured on the blog and for sharing her favorite beauty products.

Thank you so much for reading and I hope you enjoyed!
