According to research released by Google , flowers are no longer the go-to gift for moms. Millennial moms are looking forward to a chance to rest, while moms ages 35 and up would love a meal with their family. Now, I know what my hubby is going to be getting me because I have dropped many
subtle hints about needing a staycation sans my two rugrats so I can catch up on some R&R (Rest and RHOBH). I can’t promise that everyone will get the much needed rest they deserve, but I can promise some gifts that will help you fake it tell you make it! Up first on my must-have-list of gifts for mom is the MakeSense Pearlizer. This amazeballs product will help you create a gorgeous, dewey look making you appear radiant and well-rested (no one will ever be able to tell you got at best 4 hours of zzz’s). You can apply by itself, mix with a foundation of your choice or use it as a
highlighter for easy contouring. This “smart” makeup adapts to your skin’s pigmentation, and contains anti-aging protection from SenePlex Complex, which you can read more about it’s unique properties here. For $50 this is a great gift that any momma would love!
Up next for faking a well-rested look is Instantly Ageless by Jeunesse. This has been coin
ed “Botox in a Box” because in under 2 minutes you can see it instantly lift and remove puffy under-eye bags. It also smooths deep forehead wrinkles. Although, this is just a temporary effect (it lasts 4-8 hours after applying) it is still nothing short of amazing. It’s a little pricier at $75 (1 box of 50 sachets) but mom will definitely thank you for this tool to add to her beauty arsenal. Also, it’s a great gift for new moms who are basically operating on fumes. You can purchase here.
Of course a LipSense collection is always a great gift because who doesn’t love long-lasting lip color? The collection is $55 and includes a lip color of your choice, a Glossy gloss and the Oops! Remover. If mom already has a gloss, then check out one of the gorgeous new Parisian shades Rose All Day & Violette (which is sold out but I have 3 for grabs, so email me if interested) for $25. If you still can’t narrow it down try one of the top 10 selling LipSense shades from 2015: 1) Sheer Berry; 2) Bombshell; 3) Praline Rose; 4) Blu Red; 5) Fire ‘N Ice;
6) Caramel Apple; 7) Pink Champagne; 8) Roseberry; 9) Fly Girl; 10)First Love
My newish favorite mascara is Moodstruck 3D Mascara from
Younique. I don’t sell this, but I purchase mine from here. It’s like painting on false lashes, amazing! It’s not waterproof, but it is pretty long-lasting. For $29 it’s a great buy!
If you are in the OKC metro area and you haven’t been to Radian, I highly suggest booking mom (or yourself) a relaxing facial or even better a spa-day. Check out their website and list of services here. This is the most posh and state-of-the-art medical spa in Oklahoma. The staff is incredible and their building is absolutely gorgeous, totally Pin-worty decor.
