Mothers are beautiful.

Beautiful: Motherhood is beautiful. Being a mom has taught me about patience, pure love, selflessness, understanding, and joy more than any other experience in my life. I never knew how much love my heart could hold until the day I met and held my babies.

Gorgeous: I can clearly remember how I felt after I delivered both my boys -- happy but not gorgeous! The only thing that made me feel like myself was holding them and putting on lipgloss. I can always count on makeup to add some color to my world!

Makeup:  I want to share some Mother's Day must-have gifts on my list. It's time to celebrate the first person who said you were beautiful the day you were born... your mom!

  1. Tarte Aqualillies Amazonian Clay Waterproof Eye and Cheek Palette...$38. Details: This limited-edition palette was inspired by Aqualillies (glamorous synchronized swimming group). Great palette for active moms!
  2. Aerin Candle in Sky Flower...$58. Details: I really think any mom would love Aerin Lauder's signature candle scent. It is one of my personal favorites. Notes include: jasmine, magnolia, and Burbon vanilla.
  3. Dior Cherie Bow Palette...$80. Details: This limited-edition palette is great for any glam mom. It has an eye shadow trio, black liner, nude shimmer gloss, and applicators!
  4. Trish McEvoy 2013 Voyager Set...$85. Details: This is fantastic for the mom that loves to travel. This has everything you need to take on a carry-on!
  5. bareMinerals Jonathan Adler Original Foundation...$60. Details: This is a great gift for any mom that loves design (especially Jonathan Adler). The limited-edition kit comes with a acrylic case, Handi Buki brush, and mineral foundation!

Do something lovely: This Mother's Day, take a moment to really hug (or call)  your lovely mom and thank her for everything. I never really understood just how much my mom did until I became a mom!

Special thanks to my mom and all moms that continue to inspire me. I appreciate and love you beyond words. Happy Mother's Day!
