The “Hot Mama!” Challenge: Simple and Sensational

November 6, 2007 at 7:09 pm Leave a comment

My good friend and neighbor Karen is an extremely busy Mom of three kids: Scott (13), Megan (3) and Ben (16 months). Quite a gap between the first two, and little Ben came quickly after Megan. Karen does an amazing job keeping up with all the needs of her family.

Karen makes time to read the local Salt Lake Tribune paper; it is her one big indulgence. I recently found out that she has a photographic memory. Whatever she reads; she retains! It is eerie what facts she has stored in that brain of hers! Karen and I also share a passion for chocolate.

It was Karen’s son Scott who convinced my daughter Sarah that she would have to get a pet Bearded Dragon.  One of Scott’s “Beardies” just laid eggs, anyone want a lizard?

Karen recently confided in me that she is need of some new makeup and skincare products. She has used Mary Kay and Lancome products in the past, but they are running out, and she is ready for something different. As a very busy and sleep-deprived Mom, she has little to no time to figure out cosmetics that are good and well suited for her specific needs.

Karen’s Profile:

  • Skin Type: Combination, dry cheeks, oily T-zone
  • Face Palate: Fair Skin, light brown freckles, light brown hair, and beautiful blue eyes
  • Age: 38
  • Foundation Preferences: Oil-Free Tinted Moisturizer, Dual Coverage Powder Foundation, Sheer and Natural Feel
  • Skin Concerns: Redness, Sensitivity to AHA’s, occasional breakouts
  • Time Issues: Needs to be Simple, not too many steps
  • Makeup Style: Minimalist, Natural
  • Budget: definitely

I want to enlist collectively our beauty smarts to help Karen achieve her goal of having a simple yet effective beauty routine. I definitely have my own recommendations, but would like to give her a variety of choices.

Through the blogosphere we can combine our resources and come up with some fabulous ways to make Karen a “Hot Mama!” Let’s help her find some great skincare and cosmetic items, and without a lot of fuss!

The cosmetic featured in the picture above is called, “Hot Mama!” and it is made by The Balm. “Hot Mama!” works as a versatile eye shadow, blush, and highlighter in an all-in-one cosmetic compact. The color is the perfect pinkish-peach shade. What a great way to get our faces glowing, and keeping it simple!

Tomorrow, I will begin with suggestions for Karen’s new skincare regimen!
