The Challenge: For a mom who's on the go as much as Skorochod, high-maintenance anything is out. She needs makeup that will last throughout the day (and stand up to her littlest's hugs and kisses) -- but she still wants to feel and look her best.
The Solution: Minimal makeup to enhance Skorochod's features and add polish -- all day long:
Tinted moisturizer is just the ticket, says Mom Squad makeup artist Sara Johnson, since Skorochod's skin is clear and radiant to start with (lucky girl!). The one Johnson chose packs SPF 30 and is sweat-proof, so it's ideal for a busy, outdoorsy life.
Waterproof mascara also makes sense for Skorochod's active life. To avoid overdoing it (and getting clumps), wipe the wand with a tissue before applying, says Johnson.
The finishing touch is spice-tone lip gloss; a wand applicator helps it go on fast, even without a mirror.
For Sundays and special occasions, Skorochod can add a palette of soft brown and mauve shadows with a little shimmer to enhance her deep brown eyes. Such neutral colors are virtually goof-proof. Johnson's tip: Apply with your ring finger so you don't tug on your lid. Skorochod approved of her new look: "This looks good! It's very subtle."
