Make-Up Must Haves

I am 38 years old with three children. These are my make-up must haves for an everyday, matte look. Includes skincare and basic pieces I use daily. I will elaborate in future posts for products I love that give you a more dewy look, which I find helps you look younger, but for now these are the basics I turn to every single day. I don’t over complicate things. Yes, I definitely pile on when I’m on TV or going out for date night, but I really love the “she looks naturally nice looking” versus “Wow. Her eyebrows are huge!” look. If you have any questions, let me know. I’ll share more products soon, but for now these are my make-up must haves for the everyday.

    Hi! You and I have similar skin tone so I am curious what colors you use for the 3 face makeup products.

      Good question, Jill!
      The the tinted moisturizer, I wear Bisque. Linked here:

      For the Laura Mercier foundation I wear Rose Ivory. Linked here: (note this is almost identical to my skin tone – blends
      in really nicely0

      For the Nars I wear Vallauris, though this one definitely gives me more color. It’s more if you want to add some “tanned” look so you have to blend it well with some bronzer on your neck. Linked here:

Please share your thoughts!
