Makeup for Busy Moms

This conversation has been sponsored, via product or payment but all opinions, chit chat and ideas are my own.


As a busy mom, sometimes I feel like I have to sacrifice sometimes. You know the joke, 'It's the house or me. We both can't look good at the same time.' That rings entirely too true in my life some days. As an example, last week when I attempted to style my hair my sweet little 2 year old climbed atop a counter and found a bottle of honey in a cabinet... I might have looked halfway human after 5 minutes with my curling wand, but my house was an entirely different and sticky situation.





When it comes to my makeup routine, time is always of the essence. With active little movers and shakers in the house and limited patience, I need products that make my skin look amazing without requiring a detailed regimen. I am kind of a wham, bam, thank you ma'am kind of woman. Not that I wouldn't love to devote 30 minutes to getting ready for the day, but life moves fast.

Mineral Hygienics is my go to makeup these days. Not only is it a matter of steps for a polished look, but geez you guys. Have you ever tried this stuff? It is incredible. Let me tell you why.


I have fair skin. I burn fairly easy for a few weeks in the spring and early summer, but then I am fortunate to develop a nice tan. However, it doesn't seem that I tan evenly. My high cheekbones generally catch all of the rays. My skin tone looks a little blotchy and uneven at times.

With 2 shades of Mineral Hygienics, I can even out my skin tone. I love that these are natural products and even better- for my high cheekbones- this makeup offers natural, chemical-free protection from the sun and those damaging rays!

After adding my foundation tones in the appropriate places, I follow up with a cool mineral enhancer, which adds a pop of pretty color to my cheeks. A quick brush with silk translucent and my face is silky, even looking and picture perfect.

Even on the busiest of days, this is a few moments I can spare for myself. As a mother, I feel it is important to look and feel confident. While sometimes it is nearly impossible to get yourself dressed and get your makeup on, it really makes a difference in how we feel as mothers. When I am dressed in a nice outfit and I get a little dolled up, my attitude is positively impacted. I feel like I can face the world.

If you are a busy woman, this is one makeup brand I insist you try. After receiving my starter kit, I tossed all of my other foundations. I finally found the perfect one for my skin.

Want to give this makeup a try? Why not apply coupon code SILLYSARA to your order?

  1. I wore Bare Essentials for a couple of years until it stopped working for me and now I'm using a mineral powder I love but got for testing and it'll cost me an arm and both legs if I want to buy it again. :(

    I haven't heard of Mineral Hygenics but I'm interested. I only want something that's light and can be added in layers up to full coverage. I have some areas I want certain coverage for but otherwise I don't want more than some evening of skin tone.

  2. I agree sometimes as moms we let ourselves go as our children take up our time. Time we used to have to make ourselves look "pretty".

  4. I am amazed that you can get mineral makeup with sun protection, and I love the way it looks as a foundation! I checked out the Mineral Site... I've worn other mineral makeups before and really like how easy and fast they are to apply!Thanks so much for the post Sarah!!

  5. This sounds like great makeup! I am exactly like you, the quicker and easier it is the better! Most days I don't even wear makeup. But when I do it's usually just foundation and lip balm. My favorite kind is no longer made, so I'm definitely in need of a new one! Thank you so much for sharing! :)

  6. I am not a fan of powder make up. My skin is just to dry for it.

  13. I love easy stuff like this just as much as I like a bit more complex things. I am not a Mom, but sometimes I just want an easy once over and be done.
