Easy Make-Up for Moms: 5 Cheap and 5 Splurges

Before I start I should say that I’m not very beautiful and no one ever compliments me on my make-up. But I do have a simple routine and a few products I love. Combine these with your own natural beauty and your kids will be asking if you’re going somewhere fancy. (You’re probably not!)

Click below to see five cheap make-up must-haves and five worth-it splurges that will help you get ready and out the door in the morning.

  • Garnier B.B. Cream 1 of 10
    Garnier B.B. Cream
    B.B. means beauty balm. It's everything you need. (Moisturizer, coverage, sunscreen. Get it. Wear it every day.
  • Per-fekt Skin Perfection Gel 2 of 10
    Per-fekt Skin Perfection Gel
    This is a huge splurge but it does make your skin perfect. It's basically a primer.
  • Covergirl Lipslicks in Princess 3 of 10
    Covergirl Lipslicks in Princess
    Cheap and pretty--just like you! This lip gloss always looks nice.
  • Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil 4 of 10
    Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil
    This is easy to use and smudge or whatever you need to do. It's worth the splurge, especially in bourbon.
  • CoverGirl Lashblast Mascara 5 of 10
    CoverGirl Lashblast Mascara
    Get the orange one.
  • Nars The Multiple 6 of 10
    Nars The Multiple
    This is another splurge that's worth it. Rub it on your cheeks or eyes or lips. It's good.
  • Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral Make-up 7 of 10
    Revlon Colorstay Aqua Mineral Make-up
    I love this. It is powder with SPF and good coverage but it feels wet. You have to try it.
  • Talika Instant Manicure 8 of 10
    Talika Instant Manicure
    This is not a splurge if you use it instead of a manicure. It's a brightening nail soak that smooths ridges and moisturizes. It's my fave.
  • Loreal Studio Line Mega Hairspray 9 of 10
    Loreal Studio Line Mega Hairspray
    I love the aerosol (with apologies to the environment) because it shoots texture into my short hair. The most important thing is that this smells good.
  • butter London nail polish 10 of 10
    butter London nail polish
    If you care about toxin-free nail polish, splurge on this. I've got the Yummy Mummy.
