My Mom’s Everyday Makeup

Hi Everyone!

I thought it’d be cool to do a post on what makeup my mom uses! Before I got into makeup and before my sister’s wedding, most of my mom’s products consisted of Clinique. Over the past few years, my mom’s makeup stash has expanded to higher end products and more diverse in terms of the brands. Now she has MAC, Smashbox, Estee Lauder, etc.

Her skin type is oily and she prefers powder foundations. She dislikes eye makeup (especially mascara), so she only ever curls her lashes. Although, for my sister’s wedding, I did a bit of a bronze/gold eye to match her dress.

Both my mom and I have gotten shade matched at Sephora, and out of curiosity, I asked the lady to match me for the foundation my mom had and she matched the same shade.

Primer & Colour Correcting

Smashbox Photo Finish Foundation Primer- Pore Minimizing

L’Oreal Magic Skin Beautifier BB Cream- Anti-Redness

Check out my review on the BB Cream!

She uses the anti-redness BB cream to cover up redness on her cheeks and around her nose. It’s a cool BB cream that starts out green and then blends into your skin and turns skin-coloured. I liked it too, but I didn’t love the smell of it and it was a bit dark on me.


Sephora MicroSmooth Baked Foundation Face Powder | 25 Beige

Lancome Miracle Cushion Foundation | 025 Beige Naturel

My mom got the cushion foundation for my sister’s wedding, but she didn’t like the liquid (even though it’s so light and natural). So, she gave it to me and I loved it! It’s finished now, but it was one of my fave foundations and I would definitely repurchase it (especially since I only have to get the refill which is $10 less). It’s a sheer, but buildable foundation and has a dewy finish.


Estee Lauder Double Wear Stay-In-Place Flawless Wear Concealer | Warm Light Medium

My mom doesn’t have dark circles to correct, so she just uses this concealer for spot concealing.


Tweezerman Lash Curler


MAC Cosmetics Powder Blush | Mocha

Clinique Soft-Pressed Powder Blusher | 02 Honey Blush

She likes blush shades that aren’t too pink. The MAC one is described as a ‘plum-pink.’


Clinique Chubby Stick Moisturizing Lip Colour Balm | 07 Super Strawberry

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick | 411 Pink Berry

Sephora Collection Ultra Shine Lip Gel | 06 Deep Rose

My mom loves a mauve lip colour. Some of the ones listed above are more pink, but her fave shade is a mauve-pink-nude.

Makeup she has in her purse to touch-up throughout the day:

Clinique Superpowder Double Face Makeup | Matte Neutral

Estee Lauder Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick | 411 Pink Berry
