2019 Mother's Day Makeup and Skin Care Gift Guide

Mother’s Day is fast approaching—and if you’re anything like us, you may still be in search of the perfect gift to show your mom how much you care. Not sure what to get the most important woman in your life? Well, if she’s as obsessed with beauty products as you are, why not treat her to some new goodies to add to her makeup and skin care routine? Help brighten the look of her complexion—as well as her day—with the following Mother's Day gift ideas, including a radiance-boosting moisturizerface mask, and blush. Tie them together with a bouquet of her favorite flowers, a box of yummy chocolates, and a gift certificate for a massage and you’re pretty much bound to be the favorite child.

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA#1: MOISTURIZER

As skin matures, its ability to renew surface cells slows down by causing a buildup of dead cells on the surface. As a result, skin’s natural pink tone is hidden and your complexion becomes dull, losing the rosy tone that’s often associated with youth. But don’t fret, that’s where this gift comes in! The L'Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer is an intense daily moisturizer enhanced with rosy pigments to instantly revive skin’s rosy tone. It’s formulated with imperial peony and LHA to help gently exfoliate dull skin and revive skin’s natural pink tone. Immediately, skin is hydrated, feels smoother, and looks rejuvenated, while skin will appear renewed with continued use over time. The rich, non-greasy formula smooths gently over skin to nourish it with moisture, while rosy pigments help to reveal a youthful look. Every morning, she'll gently smooth the moisturizer onto a clean face in a circular motion. 

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #2: FACE MASK

Don’t you think your mom deserves a little pampering? We do! To help Mom pamper herself, all the while taking her rosy radiance to the next level, gift her with the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Face Mask, too. Formulated with powerful AHAs and imperial peony, this gel face mask works to gently buff away the buildup of makeup, dirt, and impurities, as well as dead skin cells that could be making her skin look dull, leaving skin radiantly refreshed with a subtle rosy tint that epitomizes the healthy glow your mom is likely aiming for.

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #3: MAKEUP BLENDER

Your mom may be a beauty addict like you, but chances are she’s been sticking to old school brushes—or even her fingers—to apply her foundation and concealer. Treat her to something new (and a total game changer) with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender. She may be slightly unsure about changing up her routine, but the easy-to-use makeup blender will allow her to effortlessly blend out face makeup for a seamless look.

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #4: PRIMER

Excuse us for the pun, but we just couldn’t help ourselves: This is not your mother’s makeup primer. No, the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Glow Makeup Lock Primer is definitely an upgrade. It instantly gives skin a radiant finish, primes for makeup, perfects, and hydrates skin for better makeup application. Basically, it does it all—you may even want to keep this gift for yourself!

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #5:  LIGHTWEIGHT FOUNDATION

Does your mom steer clear of heavy makeup? If she prefers a lightweight look, share the L'Oréal Paris Infallible Up to 24HR Fresh Wear Foundation, Lightweight with her. This lightweight, full-coverage foundation is water, sweat, and transfer-resistant so your mom will be prepared to take on anything that comes her way!

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #6: BB CREAM

Moms seem to always be on the go, and we’re guessing yours is no exception to that rule. Chances are she’s not looking to make her way through a 10-step makeup routine every morning—who has the time? Thankfully, she won’t have to—if you gift her with a BB cream! BB cream tends to be lightweight and relatively sheer making one an ideal option for when your mom wants a more natural look. Grab her the L’Oréal Paris Magic BB Anti-Fatigue (For All Skin Types), which revives a tired complexion, evens skin tone, hydrates, and perfects.

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #7:  BLUSH 

We’re all about treating Mom to products that will lift her spirits. And sometimes, looking your best is what it takes to feel your best. Help Mom revive her complexion and her spirit with the L'Oréal Paris Visible Lift Blush. This blush has a cream-to-powder formula and is available in six shades, ranging from rose gold (totally on trend right now!) to nude to coral. Show her how to apply it for a pretty flush and you’ll be primed to win daughter of the year.  

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #8: FULL-COVERAGE CONCEALER

Everyone needs a full-coverage concealer in their makeup bag. You may think of your mom as a superhero, but we’re betting even she has to deal with the occasional restless night—leading to dark under-eye circles—or unexpected blemish. For those situations, her new secret weapon should be the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Full Wear Concealer Waterproof, Full Coverage. The non-greasy, waterproof formula won’t transfer, fade, or flake, making it totally hero-worthy.

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #9: MASCARA

You can never have too much mascara, and there’s a solid chance it’s time for Mom to toss her old tube (you’re supposed to replace mascara every three months!) and try something new. You could repurchase her tried-and-true, holy grail mascara, but we suggest picking up the latest trendy mascara instead. We have a feeling Mom will love the L’Oréal Paris Unlimited Lash Lifting and Lengthening Washable Mascara, which has a bendable brush for easy application and a stretchable formula that offers an instant lash lift effect!

MOTHER’S DAY GIFT IDEA #10: SETTING SPRAY

You’ve taught your mom a lot (and it goes without saying that the opposite is true, too!), but have you shared the magic of face mists with her? Spread the joy by giving her the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Shake & Glow Dew Mist, which can be used to prime, set, and refresh her makeup look. Suggest she stow it in her fridge for extra refreshing misting—remember, summer isn’t too far off!

We hope we’ve helped make shopping for your mom a little bit easier. With all she’s done for you, she definitely deserves a special day! If you want to make Mother’s Day even more special, consider setting up an at-home spa day for you and your mom. Read up on How to Have an At-Home Spa Day so you can start planning ASAP!
