Every mom enjoys looking her best, especially on Mother's Day. Its our day to be appreciated and you can bet that I am one mom that is gonna look great doing it! Make-up is a necessity for me to look anywhere near human so when I learned of some great make-up tips provided by CoverGirl and celebrity make-up artist Jake Bailey, I knew that I just had to share. Enjoy!

Mother's Day Make-Up Tips from Celebrity Make-Up Artist Jake Bailey

This Mother’s Day, take the time to pamper yourself for a change!  Celebrity make-­‐up artist Jake  Bailey has teamed up with COVERGIRL to offer the following quick and easy tips for looking red-­‐carpet-­‐ready, even if just to enjoy a little “mommy me-­‐time” with breakfast in bed!

All About The Eyes
For moms on-the-go, an eyelash curler and healthy coat of rich, black mascara is all you need for a clean daytime look. Curling lashes opens the yes, and applying mascara close to the base will define the lash-line and really accentuate your eyes. Pluck any stray eyebrow hairs, and use a clear mascara or brow gel to keep unruly hairs from straying.

Hip Lips Look Light & Bright 
Forget too-dark reds and the same old nude - rosy shares are the most universally flattering for spring. Bright pinks work best on pale skin, and corals do wonders for olive-toned complexions. For a flawless application, use a lip scrub to remove any dead skin, leaving behind a smooth surface. Apply lipstick directly from the tube, and refine corners and edges using a lip brush or lip liner of the same color.

Fake Flawless Skin with 
the Right Foundation  
For the most natural look and fastest application, use your fingers to gently blend a small amount of foundation over your problem-prone areas such as your cheeks, nose and forehead - where pores and redness can appear. For more coverage, use a foundation brush to apply, and gently press a sponge over heavier spots to absorb excess. One of my favorite products is COVERGIRL & Olay Simply Ageless Foundation. It's super easy to use, and anti-aging ingredients won't settle into fine lines or wrinkles (a common concern for my clients) so the result is a polished look that lasts all day. Perfect for moms with a short supply of time for make-up, there's no need to powder, and sunscreen is built right in (SPF 22).

Pass up the Powder
Cream blushes are quick and simple way to achieve a bright and healthy looking complexion. Again, I recommend using your fingertips to blend a tiny bit onto the apples of your cheeks. COVERGIRL & Olay's Simply Ageless line has a sculpting blush that helps contour cheekbones, and since it's the same texture as the foundation, it won't disturb coverage and blends seamlessly. For extra glamor, use a soft-bristled brush to swirl the color onto the apples of cheeks and back toward the cheekbone for an airbrushed look.
