I had such a great time at The Makeup Show LA last weekend and I’ve rounded up our top “Mom Friendly” Makeup Brands whose products will save you a ton of time while helping you look as glam as possible, mamas!
I’ll start with the actual event. The Makeup Show LA is a fabulous gathering of all things beauty and beautiful–- cosmetics, people, tools, displays, you name it!
It’s only open to professionals working or studying in the beauty or fashion industries and it’s held in different cities around the country.
For the Angeleno Makeup artistry crowd, the Makeup Show was held inside the California Market Center in Downtown Los Angeles and after testing, enjoying, wearing and promoting several awesome make-up products I received, here are my top picks for LA Moms:
I met and spoke with founder Sebastian Tardif of Veil Cosmetics to understand the way his 3-product makeup brand works. That’s right, Veil Cosmetics focuses on 3 items ONLY: Primer, Concealer, and Foundation. And all three are a combination of makeup and skin care focusing on brightening, hydrating, and soothing the skin.
The three items all compliment each other and are best used as a trio, however, Sebastian did suggest if one of the three items of his brand was the most “Mommy Friendly” it would be the Complexion Fix Corrector/Concealer Pen. It’s easy, quick, and skin will still look like skin, except with a natural, weightless “veil” of makeup.
This luxury Skincare Brand is formulated with trusted natural ingredients and advanced technologies to ensure exceptional results and ALL skin types, even the most sensitive. I went home with a bottle of their Facial Cleansing Oil and I am obsessed. It’s a two-in one cleansing oil and Makeup Remover which is so gentle on the skin but really gets all that makeup off. Once it’s rinsed off the skin is smooth and even feels moisturized.
Makeup Forever is that ultimate professional, colorful, and vibrant Makeup Brand which we all love to use. The item I tested from this brand was a fabulous red Liquid Matte Lip Color in shade #401. The Liquid Matte Lip Colors are incredibly great for the glam mom who wants her pout to look flawless and bright all day long. It stays on for so long without needing to reapply!
