I know there are some fabulous mamas out there, but ladies, I am not naturally one of them. Sure, I used to spend big money on make-up back in the day. But those days are loooong gone, and I’ve spent years and years with a lackluster five minute makeup routine for moms– drug-store foundation, drug store eyeliner, drug store blush, and LOTS of drug-store mascara.

I just didn’t have the time, the energy or, frankly, the money to put towards my day to day look.

How a Little Bit of Drug Store Makeup Can Make a HUGE Difference! From thesaltymamas.com

And then my son spent five minutes as a model, and, as a result, so did I.  And I received two glorious makeovers in the process. I wasn’t the focus of the shoot, so my makeup was light, natural, and simple.

But I still felt like a million dollars, and decided I wouldn’t wait until the next photo shoot to find that oomph again, but that I would find it on my own (which, thank goodness, as there was no next shoot).

I was lucky enough to stumble upon Mama’s Beauty Bar, a Facebook group run by a kind, funny, and talented makeup guru by the name of Beth Griffin. Beth is the owner and operator of Chrysalis Beauty Co.

I watched her incredible Facebook live videos, learned some tips and tricks, and my style started to evolve.  And when I won a Lip Bon Bon of my own? I realized that this makeup really was worth every penny!

So I adjusted my makeup budget a little. I did some serious Google Searches, and some serious trial-and-erroring, and stepped up my game by finding the best drug-store make up for moms around (which helped me free up my budget for my favorite lip-gloss splurge from Younique).

So if you find yourself looking to up your mom makeup game, take heart. We’ve got the PERFECT five minute makeup routine for moms to get you looking fresh a little more frequently.
