My Mommy Make-Up Routine: Fast, Easy & Affordable!

Hey friends,

Today I'm breaking down my FEA makeup routine. If you speak Spanish, you know that "fea" is a term used to refer to someone/something as 'ugly' lol. But this is far from that (I hope). In this post, FEA stands for fast, easy, & affordable! I'm showing you the products I use for my usual mommy makeup look, & the total cost. Spoiler alert, it's only about $50 for everything, which doesn't even come close to breaking the bank ;)

This is only going to take about 7 minutes, with only 7 products. We did not come to play lol.
I've already washed my face & moisturized so I'm going to start with:

1. Foundation
I use L’Oréal True Match Foundation in the color Buff Beige. I'm a little pasty right now but USUALLY, this color is an exact match for me. It doesnt dry out my skin, doesn't add any grease, & blends out really well. Right around $8.

2. Concealer
This concealer, Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Concealer, is my favorite so far. I'm no makeup expert but it makes the bags under my eyes disappear so *shrug* it works for me lol. I wear the color Light. Right above $6.

3. Powder
I use this e.l.f. Studio Perfect Finish Translucent Powder on my forehead wrinkles, on my eyelids & under my eyes as well. Those specific areas tend to crease any product on them so boom..hit 'em with the powder. It wokrs so good & has such a good price point at $6 (in store at Target!)

4. Brows
I already have decently full brows to begin with, but there's gaps so this takes care of that. NYX Micro Brow Pencil in __ has lasted me forever & stays on just as good as ABH products. & you just can't beat this price: $6.29.

5. Mascara
My go-to, forevaaaaL’Oréal Original Voluminous Mascara in Blackest Black, no fallout! Under $6!

6. Eyeliner
Also a go-to. Bold color & lasts forever. NYX Slide On Pencil Eyeliner in Jet Black . Just over $7.

7. Blush
Milani Baked Blush In Luminoso gives me a really pretty color year round. It has great color pay off & just the right amount of shimmer for a nice, subtle glow. Just under $7.

This is a makeup routine most moms can make time for. I've made it a point to get into real clothes & do this look as often as possible because the saying holds true, "When ya look good, ya feel good." When I have extra time (basically only when husband is home) I try for eye shadow or false lashes.
