A Fresh Look Using my Mama’s Makeup

Skincare and makeup was our thing. We’d exchange products and spend way too long in Sephora every time we went. This was one of the things my mama and I shared just the two of us.

Like me, she preferred simple, sophisticated looks – no shimmer or bright colors. Her twist was to add a punch of eyeliner, and she would test out every new eyeliner that came her way since it was her favorite item.

I decided to use some of her staples to create a simple look for warmer weather. You can tell she loved them since some of the items are a little worn out!

Ben Nye Creme Rouge (Dusty Mauve)

This is the exact color I usually gravitate to when it comes to blushes. I’ve only used a cream blush once in my life, but definitely want to make it a staple.

Benefit Cosmetics Watt’s Up Champagne Cream-to-Powder Highlighter

Cream highlighters are the way to go, and this one in particular brings back memories from my high school days. It’s still as great a product as I remember, and I love that it’s very natural-looking.

This one also brings me back to my school days before I took the time to really do my brows. However, after using it, I now remember why I loved it so much.

Dior Addict Lip Maximizer (012 Rosewood)

We came across this product last year and picked this shade out together. It’s really hydrating and lasts a very long time without being too sticky.

Maybelline Unstoppable Waterproof Eyeliner (Cinnabar)

I believe drugstore items are very underrated. This eyeliner is very smooth and nicely emphasized my eyes.

I truly loved every one of these products, especially the cream blush and lip color.
