I recently worked with a beautiful new mom before her family photo shoot. When you don't have time to eat a clean diet, drink lots of water, and get plenty of sleep you sometimes have to fake it with makeup!

After prepping the skin I mixed a bit of tinted moisturizer - Laura Mercier Tinted Illuminating Moisturizer with a silicone based foundation. To add a bit more glow and highlight to the skin I dabbed Revlon PhotoReady Skinlights in 100 Bare Light to the tops of the cheekbones. After lightly setting with a translucent powder I dusted one of my favorite bronzers- Armani Sun Fabric in 100 to the perimeter of the face and the cheekbones, focusing on the base of the cheekbone to create a bit of a contour.

The best part about this makeup application was that her sweet little baby girl slept in her arms the entire time!
