A few of Mom's favorite things
My mom visited me over the weekend. In addition to hanging out (and eating good food) I had the chance to pore through her traveling makeup collection. I thought it would be fun to share some of her favorites in a post! For the face, she uses Estee Lauder Day Wear BB Cream SPF 35. She purchased this for summertime and traveling since it's easy to wear and has high SPF. The Chanel Poudre Universelle Compact in 150 Jasmin is a nice finishing powder with some shimmer that can be used like a highlight. The Sephora Professionel Airbrush is great for applying powder or blending another foundation on top of the BB cream. Her current favorite eye palette is the Giorgio Armani Spring 2012 eye palette, which has a selection of sheer purple, mint, gold, and pebble. Purple is her favorite and is often combined with purple eyeliner as well. The lavender pink color of Maybelline Dream Bouncy blush in Orchid Hush complements a purple color scheme quite well. For lips, she brought along Chanel Rouge Coco in Peregrina over which she layers Laura Mercier Lip Glaze in Soft Pink. Mom really liked my MAKE UP FOR EVER Aqua Brow in Ash (formula reviewed here) while she was here and might get one for herself. We do share makeup and some commonalities in taste, however our color palettes and tastes are a bit different due to differences in age and skin undertone. Thanks for reading! What kind of makeup does your mom carry in her bag? How are your tastes in makeup similar and/or different?
