Brimming with Beauty: A Mother’s Day Gift Guide for Every Type of Mother You Know!

Happy Monday!  Mother’s Day is less than a week away and, in honor of the occasion, I have a round of beauty and accessory suggestions for every mother on your list.  Inspired by the Ulta Mother’s Day Gift Guide, there are products curated for moms of every walk of life…from trend-followers and naturalists to classic beauties and those who are always in a rush, I hope you enjoy this image and swatch heavy pictorial! 
Kindly scroll on for more details, swatches and images of the suggestions in action as well as the Bottom Line…

On Trend Selections. 
// ON TREND MOM //  

Modern and sophisticated, this mom is always aligned with the latest launches: 
On-Trend swatches in direct sunlight.  
Natural Mom Selections. 

Health-conscious and earth-friendly, this mom seeks the best ingredients that beauty has to offer:

  • *Becca Ombre Nudes Eyeshadow Palette: Five matte neutral browns work together to deliver a resplendent, ultra-natural effect. 
  • Stila Aqua Glow Serum Concealer in Light-Medium: This concealer offers skincare benefits and an invisible finish that perfects skin upon contact.
  • Stila Stay All Day Liquid Lipstick in Caramello: For those seeking a “my lips but better” shade, the luxe nude Caramello is a must and the lasting power is insane, I might add! 
  • LORAC Alter Ego Lip Gloss in Supermodel: This gleaming peachy gloss is non-sticky and endlessly flattering. 
  • *IT Cosmetics Superhero Mascara (reviewed HERE): My love for this formula is no secret (on tube #3) and I take every opportunity to share the wonder of this jet black lengthening and volumizing formula that works well on even the most sensitive of eyes. 
  • Cartier Love Bracelet: I’ve received so many reader questions my vintage version over the years that I couldn’t help but suggest this iconic classic.  Because it screws on, I haven’t taken mine off in 7 years which makes it feel like a natural part of my body at this point!  Check out the many vintage and pre-owned offerings from The Real Real (my favorite vintage luxury site as of late). 
  • Swatches in direct sunlight. 
    Naturally pretty.
    Classic Selections.

      I have a lot of these and your suggestions are excellent. I might add the By Terry sun designer compact. It's beautiful and would look perfect on you and many other skin tones!
