Beauty Tips For Moms

As a blogger, I have had the wonderful opportunity of meeting some really cool people. Before I had this outlet in my life though, as just a mom, it was tough meeting other moms. Especially when their kids were at a different school. Needless to say, when I met Nicole Pearl via Instagram, I was excited to have a new mom friend.

I stumbled upon her feed and starting engaging with her. Nicole is a beauty blogger with an awesome amount of content on her website. She definitely knows her stuff. Beauty is such a huge part of fashion so naturally, her feed piqued my interest. Fast forward to meeting her “in person” at a beauty event, of course. We hit it off and kept in contact. Nicole was pregnant with her third so I knew I wouldn’t get to hang at that moment. Recently, we connected again and decided to collaborate. Since we are both moms, we thought it would be a great idea to share our five mom must-haves for beauty and fashion.

Mom Must-Haves


  1. High Waist Jeans- I’ve shared my love for high waist jeans before. They are my go-to for my day-to-day momiform. You simply must own a pair or two.
  2. Cute Sweatshirt- Sweatshirts are so versatile and can be dressed up or down. This Vogue sweatshirt I got from a local mom boss, The Abi Project. It comes in several colors too. I styled it with a white button down shirt that has a peplum back.
  3. Belt Bag- This is one trend that is here to stay. It allows us mamas to be hands-free. It’s perfect for all seasons. This Chanel one that I rented from at Byfashionaholic is the cutest. Every designer has them in their collection. It’s easy to find them in all price points.
  4. Sneakers- My feet love sneakers. They are just so easy to style especially for a mom. The dad sneaker should be called the mom sneaker. Usually, we’re the ones toting the little ones around all day. My Puma’s also come in sizes for little girls.
  5. Cute belt- I don’t have one on in this pic, but I keep an arsenal of them to update my looks. Leopard belts are my favorite this season. Although, I love a cute obi belt.


Nicole was so kind to share her five beauty must-haves for moms. I took her advice so I’m sharing my beauty brands based on her five must-haves.

  1. Lipstick or Lipgloss- Nicole likes a berry color. It’s perfect for day-to-day. Here, I’m wearing berry lip stain by ByTerry.
  2. Tinted Moisturizer- I have to say I agree wholeheartedly. I’m not much of a makeup girl unless I have to for a shoot or a night out. However, tinted moisturizer has become my best friend. It evens out my skin tone. Nars is my current fave. I own the velvet matte and the pure radiant broad spectrum tinted moisturizer from Nars.
  3. Under eye concealer- This is definitely a moms best friend especially if your children are under the age of 5. You are exhausted and the eyes tell it all. Grab a great under eye concealer and never let anyone know how sleep deprived you are again.
  4. Hair tie- I’m so glad this has become fashionable again. Scrunchies and hair ties have made a huge comeback. I definitely have at least one around my wrist daily.
  5. Mascara- Recently, I looked in my makeup case and I had six different mascaras. I love to wear two different brands every time I apply mascara. Make that three if I use a lash primer. Lashes make all the difference on your face. I live for mascara.


OK, there you have it. My top five fashion must-haves for moms and Nicole’s five mom must-haves for beauty. Like what you see? Feel free to share with a friend or two.
