When was the last time you had yourself primped up? With the busy lives we moms lead, we often put ourselves at the bottom of our priority list. But hey, we need a makeover once in a while – or, at the very least, we need to have an efficient make-up kit at hand for quick touch-ups before attending a PTA meeting, attending a weekend lunch reunion, or going out on a date with hubby. However, with so many beauty products in the market today, it is quite a haunting task to figure out which ones are worth spending your hard-earned money on. Worry not -- we put together a list of beauty kit must-haves for the mom on the go, whatever your budget is:
1. BB Cream BB Cream is the ultimate multitasker. It combines a moisturizer, primer, foundation and sunblock in one. It works like a tinted moisturizer but with a much better coverage that evens out the skin and hides blemishes. It’s also lightweight and gives a natural looking finish, and packed with ingredients that help soothe and regenerate the skin. Majority of BB Creams in the market come in just one or two shades that are too fair for the typical Filipina, but here are two of the few brands with more shades to choose from:
SmashboxCamera Ready BB Cream Broad Spectrum SPF 35, available in 4 shades, Php1,900.00, shop.beautybar.com.ph It has SPF 35 which guards against harmful UVA/UVB rays.
