Mother's Day Makeover

Bare Escentuals' Color Collection is a great make-up set to share with your daughter.

“Don’t wait for Mother’s Day to feel glamorous,” says Tawni Hart, Nordstrom northeast regional beauty and fragrance director. Give yourself an instant mom makeover any day for less than $50 with these beauty essentials.

Color your eyes and cheeks with Laura Mercier’s palette ($48), in bright spring shades, then finish the look with a full-body mascara, such as Lancôme’s Hypnose Drama mascara ($25). “Just one coat does the trick,” says Hart. If you share your make-up stash with your daughter, check out the new Bare Escentuals Naturally Luminous Refreshing Color Collection ($38), a six-piece set with two eye shadows, blush, eyeliner, lip gloss and a brush.

When you’re rushing out the door, here’s a fresh idea from Hart you can run with: Keep a rollerball stick of your favorite fragrance in your purse. Donna Karan’s duo style ($25) has Cashmere Mist on one end and sheer lip gloss on the other.

Available at or Nordstrom stores in Cherry Hill, NJ; King of Prussia, PA; and a new location at Christiana Mall in Newark, DE.
