The mom you're shopping for is no stranger to a statement lip and a swipe of mascara before leaving the house. Her "me time" is usually spent in front of her vanity, playing with her many palettes and brushes. Don't disappoint her again this Mother's Day with a weak potted flower.
Another thing to take care of.
Trust me, she wants one (or all!) of these makeup-centric gifts below...
Beautyblender Bling.Ring Kit ($29)
If Mom loves makeup, chances are she owns at least one Beautyblender, the miracle sponge known in beauty addict circles as the holy grail of makeup applicators. Get her this adorable adorned ring to display her Beautyblender (included) so that her vanity looks as good as her makeup. Available at Sephora.
Sephora Collection Double Time Double Ended Brush Set ($68)
You have fond memories from your childhood of watching Mom putting on her makeup. You also remember Mom cursing herself when she could never find the right makeup brush. Get Mom's shit together with this roll-up brush set that has six luxurious double-ended brushes including Angled Brow & Spoolie, Angled & Pointed Foundation, Airbrush & Perfecting Concealer, Buffing & Blush Brush, Eyeliner & Smudge Brush, and All-Over & Angled Eyeshadow. Available at Sephora.
Sonia Kashuk Weekender Bag in Face Print ($29.99)
Mom may have a lot of beautiful makeup, but she's still carrying everything around in a zip-lock bag. No bueno. Get Mom this fun, multi-compartment weekender bag so that the hotel maids stop laughing at her when she goes on vacation. Available at Target.
Christopher Kane for NARS Collection ($25 - $39)
Perfect for a young Mom who is not afraid to experiment with her makeup, or perhaps for an older, eccentric Mom whose convinced she can pull off neon (no judgment!), this collection includes eye shadows, lip glosses, multiples, and blush in vivid colors and their complementary nudes. Match a statement lip gloss like Mezmer (sheer neon pink) with a demure blush like Silent Nude Blush (soft beige) and be sure to tell Mom she can use the blush on her eyelids as well. Available at NARS Cosmetics.
Make Up For Ever Artist Palette Volume 1 - Nudes ($42)
Even though Mom loves makeup, she always chooses demure minimalist colors. Give her this palette of nine Artist Shadows in ultra-flattering neutral shades. Bonus: Even if Mom's been hitting the vino early in the day she won't mess up her eye makeup thanks to the enclosed instruction booklet. Available at Sephora.
