As every mother would say, “Everyday is Mother’s Day”. And though it might be all true, showing your gratitude towards your mom during this special day is something worth celebrating. To show how much we really appreciate and love our mothers, there’s nothing like spoiling them with thoughtful gifts that will send their hearts aflutter. In this article, we’re spilling some of the top beauty buys — from makeup to skincare, and even fragrances — that you can give to your mom this Mother’s Day.
1. BURBERRY BEAUTY
Nothing beats showering your mom with kisses for Mother’s Day. And BTW, when we talk about kisses, we mean Burberry Beauty’s Kisses Lip Lacquer. Whether she’s a classic, bold red lip kind of woman or she prefers something natural, there are loads of lustrous kissable colours for you to choose from. What’s best about the range isn’t just their extensive colour palette, but these lip lacquers also give full coverage in one stroke and have a non-drying formula that delivers a high colour payoff and a comfortable gel-like texture. Some of the popular shades include Nude 03, Rosewood 16, Light Crimson 28, Magenta 33, Military Red 41, Oxblood 53.
The Kisses Lip Lacquer from Burberry Beauty ($48) is available at Sephora.
LIP CHIC LIPSTICKS
Just like you, every mom deserves the best. And with Chantecaille, you can expect some of the finest pieces for your mom this Mother’s Day. An invitation to spring, the latest Lip Chic lipsticks make their debut in the brand’s Spring Collection that comes with an ultra-emollient formula that’s lightweight, and goes on seamlessly onto the lips with a rich, meltingly soft texture, with a coverage of a lipstick and the shine and subtle plumping effects of a gloss.
Not to mention, as part of their initiative, Chantecaille is always working to give back to the Amazon Conservation Team that works to preserve the hummingbird’s rainforest habitat. Thus, 5% of the sale of these Lip Chic Lipsticks will directly support one of ACT’s projects in the Andes Amazon in Colombia. There’s nothing quite like buying a gift and helping the community one lipstick at a time.
The Chantecaille Lupine Lip Chic ($66.50) is now available at Lookfantastic.
3. HOURGLASS COSMETICS
Ambient Lighting Palette
Add some glow to your skin with a star-studded palette by Hourglass Cosmetics. Built with three shades of Ambient Lighting Powder, add a hint of luminosity to your skin and breathe life into your cheeks with this palette. With the help of its Photoluminescent Technology, these powders work to filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of your pores for a soft-focus finish that zeros out on any flashbacks. Use it as its own or layer it to imbue a multidimensional glow to your lifeless skin.
Mother’s Day Bundle
After years of taking care of you and your family, your mom deserves lots of pampering. RE:ERTH has just launched their Mother’s Day Bundle and it’s sure to bring a sparkle to her eyes. That’s because it features not one but two of their Smoothing Eye Creams. With firming and brightening properties, this eye cream works to re-align the collagen fibres, increases circulation and decreases fluid retention around the eye area — which is perfect especially for the moms who are the early birds in the family.
