Celebrity Makeup Artist Shares Beauty Tips for Mother's Day

Need some beauty tips for our special day?  Are they throwing you a party?  Is the family taking you out to a restaurant?

I know I need to cover my bags from my sleepless nights thanks to my toddler.  And who doesn't want to look extra beautiful at least once a year, right?  Or put together?
Celebrity makeup artist and NEUTROGENA® Hispanic Beauty Ambassador, Elizabeth Ulloa, shares her professional beauty tips that will have all mamis looking beautiful during and beyond Mother's Day!

Smart Makeup - Get the base right and consider your skin needs. Maybe it needs a mattifying foundation, a light BB cream or just a little concealer. Whichever you choose, make sure to get the right color for your skin tone. Select a product with additional benefits such as SPF and antioxidants.

Make Your Eyes Pop in an Instant - Curl your eyelashes! It makes such a huge difference. Practicing with a good eyelash curler is a lifesaver, it can bring a face right back to life after a sleepless night.  

Longer Lasting Curls to Your Lashes - Once your lashes are curled, apply multiple layers of different types of mascara. Start with a waterproof formula - with its quick drying time, it will seal your lashes in place. Adding other formulas such as volumizing and lengthening mascaras is the ultimate cocktail to gorgeous, full lashes.

A Flush of Radiance - One of my favorite beauty tips to instantly add a natural, youthful glow is to apply a pinkish rose-colored blush onto the apples of the cheeks, forehead, temples and tip of the nose. It instantly gives you a flush of radiance.

Smart Tools - For an even flawless foundation application soak your makeup sponge in water, squeeze water out and let sponge expand, begin applying your foundation

Radiant Eyes - Add luminosity to your eyes by applying a pale shimmer eye shadow into the inner corner tear ducts of the eyes - it will instantly open up your eyes. I recommend silver for pale skin, gold for medium skin and copper for darker skin tones.

Healthy Pucker - Shades such as bright berries, peaches and soft nudes add a touch of chic elegance to your lips. Choose emollient formulas to add the right amount of shine.

Healthy Skin is Happy Skin - Always remember to remove your makeup before bedtime to avoid nasty breakouts. Makeup remover cleansing towelettes are fast, easy and efficient to always keep your skin healthy and happy.
