I am not exactly a new mom, but I have a almost 3 year old who keeps me busy. I get very little sleep still and there are some days that I need a little something to help me not look dead. I found this it Cosmetics CC cream that illuminates the skin and it has really helped me out. It is light coverage that evens out my skin tone and gives me a bit of a glow. It has some sort of tiny speckles of a shimmering dust it seems. It’s subtle, you cannot see it unless you get up close and I do not think anyone other than your kids will be that close to your face. I use around one pump onto a brush and spread it all over my face. You can finish it with a tiny bit of powder if you wish, I typically do but only on my t-zone area. I complete my look with some blush, curl my eyelashes, apply mascara and lipstick or lip gloss. Voilà ! You will look Alive!
