Trading the Makeup Bag for the Diaper Bag? Not So fast!

Anyone that knows me knows how much I depend on my makeup bag. I seriously can’t leave home without it. It’s not that I feel I need it, I enjoy it. I like feeling my best self when stepping out. Plus, I also come from a long line of women who are always so well put together (even if just stepping out to get the mail.)

You know what else I’ve learned? Priorities sure do change when you become a mom and the days of a full face of makeup just ain’t happening.

How do we keep it simple and fresh? I turn to my favourite makeup artist, Kate Nadon for some tips and tricks for the new or busy mom.

Hey, nice to meet you. I’m new at the whole mom game. Just trying to get it perfect. HA! Impossible, right? I think so too. That’s why I created a place for the Wanna Be Super-Mom. We exist, we’re trying, and although we may not get it right the first time, you better believe we’ll keep working at it.
