Mother’s Day Makeup Gift Ideas

Mother’s Day will be here soon — do you have a pretty present for Mom yet? If not, consider one of these cosmetic ideas below. I give my mom beauty products each year and she loves it! Mom probably won’t buy herself a cool kit or pretty highlighter — so treat her to something new!

LORAC Hot Off The Red Carpet Collection ($36.00 — $105 Value) — This set features two exclusive color-coordinated, mineral-infused, shimmering baked eye shadow duos, an exclusive TANtalizer Baked Bronzer, a full-size Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss in 3D (rose bronze glitter), and a gold bag that can double as a blingy evening clutch. It is formulated without parabens and petrochemicals.

This set contains:

– 2 x 0.12 oz Baked Eye Shadow Duo in Tease Me (bronze shimmer/ teal with gold sheen) and Tempt Me (champagne shimmer/ chocolate brown shimmer)

– 0.35 oz TANtalize Me Baked Bronzer (swirled tan, gold and bronze)

– 0.17 oz Multiplex 3D Lip Gloss in 3D (rose bronze with 3D glitter)

– Gold Zip Bag

This is a beautiful kit — my favorite items are the eye shadows. They are gorgeous — really shimmery and fresh — great for now and throughout the summer. The bronzer is also pretty, but the lip gloss is extremely sparkly, so I use it only for night-time. The bag is really fun!  Visit to purchase.

Make Up For Ever Uplight Face Luminizer Gel ($29.00 USD) — Enriched with precious pearls that catch and reflect light, Uplight creates a radiant complexion. It contains more than 70% water for a fresh, lightweight texture as well as mango butter that creates a moisturizing effect. Formulated for the face and body, this product adds a healthy glow to your skin that will last all day.

This is available in a variety of unique finishes: Dewy, Pearly, and Sparkling. I tried #31 — a sparkling blue pink. Very moisturizing and so pretty — but very sparkly! Your mom may like one of the Dewy or Pearly finishes.  If she likes pink, there is #11 Dewy Pink Beige and #22 Pearly Pink Flesh. There are also white and flesh tones.  Available at, MAKE UP FOR EVER Boutique & Studios at Sephora. 

Laura Geller Bring on the Bronze ($55.00 USD) — This kit is all you need to help you look sunny and rested, with that just-back-from-vacation glow. It is packaged in an adorable bronze clutch, with orange lining, to hold all your bronzing essentials:

– Spackle® Tinted Under Make-up Primer in Bronze

– Baked Eyeshadow Duo in Candied Bronze

– Lipshine SPF 15 in Sundrenched

This is a gorgeous kit for days where you want to look natural and not cake on a lot of foundation. Just apply the bronzer on your face and the body frosting can either highlight or bronze you all over. The eyeshadow and eyeliner make a great bronzed eye (just add the mascara of your choice). And the lip color is almost like a sunny balm!
