Mother's Day Makeup Tips from Jake Bailey and COVERGIRL!

If there's a company that knows that moms need a little pampering, it's COVERGIRL!  They are always trying to come up with something new to help us get ready faster, and look and feel more beautiful! 

In honor of Mother's Day, COVERGIRL has teamed up with Celebrity Make-Up Artist Jake Bailey to share some fabulous make up tips just for moms! 

Here's what Jake had to share: 

All About The Eyes: 

For Moms on the go, a simple eyelash curler and healthy coat of rich, black mascara is all you need for a clean, daytime look. Curling lashes really opens the eyes, and applying mascara at the base will define the lashline and really accent your eyes. Pluck any stray eyebrow hairs, and apply a clear mascara or brow gel to keep any unruly hairs from straying. 

Hip Lips Look Light And Bright: 
 Forget too‐dark reds and the same old
nude – rosy shades are the most universally flattering for spring.  Bright pinks work best on pale
skin, and corals do wonders for olive‐toned complexions.  For a flawless application, use a lip
scrub to remove any dead skin, leaving behind a smooth surface.  Apply lipstick directly from the
tube, and refine corners and edges using a lip brush or lip liner of the same color.  

Fake Flawless Skin With The Right Foundation: 
the  most  natural  look  and  fastest  application,  use  your
fingers to gently blend a small amount of foundation over
problem‐prone  areas  –  cheeks,  nose  and  forehead  –
where pores and redness can appear.  For more coverage,
use  a  foundation  brush  to  apply,  and  gently  press  a
sponge over heavier spots to absorb excess.  One of my
favorite  products  is  COVERGIRL  &  Olay  Simply  Ageless
Foundation.    It’s  super  easy  to  use,  and  anti‐aging
ingredients  won’t  settle  into  fine  lines  or  wrinkles  (a
common concern for my clients) so the result is a polished
look  that  lasts  all  day.    Perfect  for  moms  with  a  short
supply of time for make‐up, there’s no need to powder,
and sunscreen is built right in (SPF 22).

Pass Up The Powder: 
Cream blushes are a quick and simple way to achieve a
bright  and  healthy‐looking  complexion.    Again,  I  recommend  using  your
fingertips to blend a tiny bit onto the apples of your cheeks. COVERGIRL & Olay’s
Simply  Ageless  line  has  a  sculpting  blush  that  helps  contour  cheekbones,  and
since it’s the same texture as the foundation, it won’t disturb coverage and blends
seamlessly.  For extra glamour, use a soft‐bristled brush to swirl the color onto
the apples of cheeks and back toward the cheekbone for an airbrushed look.

Thanks, COVERGIRL and Jake for all these great tips!
