It’s been almost 2 weeks since I gave birth to Baby 3, and Mama is starting to feel like she can play with makeup again! I’m teaming up with Nordstrom to show how I make some of my favorite products work to give my tired, sleepless postpartum skin a refresh. Especially being in the thick of summer, my goal is for a fresh face with dewy skin that looks like I’ve had 8 hours of peaceful sleep. Linking all products below, plus sharing one of my favorite skincare tricks to a flawless, luminous base.
My star product is the Charlotte Tilbury Magic Cream. This is one of those products I had to test out thoroughly before recommending because it’s on the pricey side, but it more than exceeds my expectations. I love that it’s multi-functional- you can use it as both your moisturizer and primer (pre-sunscreen if using as moisturizer). One of my favorite tricks that really takes my foundation to the next level is taking a bit of magic cream and using it to dilute my full coverage foundation, which in the summer, I want coverage but also want my skin to breath. With this pregnancy I encountered a lot of hyper pigmentation which is why I opted for a full coverage foundation that I can thin out as I choose.
The Estee Lauder Double Wear foundation is one of my favorite full coverage foundations. It’s lightweight but does the job with one application. I usually bounce between shades Wheat and Cashew but am wearing Wheat here.
A few other stand out products that I love for a fresh, subtle glow are listed below:
Charlotte Tilbury Glowgasm Beauty Wand Highlighter in Pinkgasm: I love using this under my foundation mixed with my Magic Cream for a rosy glow or on top for a more dewy look.
Laura Mercier Face Illuminator in Devotion: If you like a powder highlighter more than this LM one is gorgeous and gives off the perfect amount of glow without being over-the-top.
NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer in Ginger: One of my favorite day-to-day light coverage concealers. You can layer for more coverage but if using the Estee Lauder foundation this is the perfect amount of coverage.
Nudestix Nudies Matte Blush & Bronze in Sunkissed: Beautiful cream bronzer stick that you can use multitask and use for eyes, lips and cheeks.
Charlotte Tilbury Full Fat Lashes Mascara: Great mascara that is buildable and doesn’t flake, which is ideal in hot, summer months.
NARS Lip Oil in Reef: The best of both comes in this lip oil as a hydrating lip tint with moisturizing benefits. And the color payoff is gorgeous!
Charlotte Tilbury Feline Flick V2 Liner in Brown: Love this liner to add a little definition and this color is a gorgeous natural hue for everyday wear.
Joe Malone English Oak & Hazelnut Cologne: More masculine scents are totally my jam and this one from Joe Malone is so beautiful with hints of earthy woodiness.
Moonlight Night Shirt: You can’t see in the pic above but I’m rocking this shirtdress that has has become a staple around the house for me since having baby which makes nursing on demand and postpartum life that much more comfy
