Best Under Eye Mask How to get Brighter Eyes

Mom Sunday Spa Night: Best Under Eye Mask & other Tips for Brighter Eyes

Hey Mamas,

In honor of tonight’s 90th Annual Academy Awards, I’m glamming up with the best under eye mask and watching the awards show in style.

(Yes, I have a babysitter and my hubby, in order to make this magical evening happen!

And, yes, my daughter is having a nasty temper tantrum and crying from her room while I wrap up this blog post. #MomLife )

But I digress. Here we are Mom Sunday Spa Night!

Grab your glass of Rose, and head to the bathroom vanity, with me, as I share my pick for the best under eye mask, plus my favorite beauty routine for creating red carpet worthy eyes.

Best Under Eye Mask

Oh K! Ginseng & Eucalyptus Under Eye Mask does the trick for tired mom’s seeking a boost of brightness and a powerful punch again puffiness. I’ve tried many eye masks, thus one has earned my Pam’s Pick approval for best under eye mask, hands down. Can I have Amen, mamas?

Achieving Bolder Brighter Brighter Eyes

Naturopathica Vitamin K Brightening Serum is quite possibly the best thing that happened to me while I was pregnant. It served me well during my months of nursing, and it continues to be a favorite and new #HustleLikeAMom duties prevent the required beauty sleep.

IT Cosmetics Brow Power Pomade helps to lift, sculpt and fortify brows, prepping them into tip top shape. Then, IT’s buddy, IT Cosmetics Brow Power Powder in universal taupe gives a completely natural filling of warm color to the brows. The combo frames the eyes,  and gives you a faux face lift. Yup, IT’s that fabulous.Younger Looking Brighter Eyes Pamela Pekerman

IT Cosmetics Perfect Lighting Radiant Touch Magic Wand is there when you haven’t made time the under eye mask or the brightening serum. Just like magic, the wand corrects all that needs to be corrected (and some days, that’s a heck-of-lot!!), evens out under eye tones and gives that much needed brightness to make eyes look youthful

Beauty by PopSugar is launching March 11st and you will love this thoughtfully crated collection of products, especially Thick+Thin Mascara which gives volume and helps you hit every hair with the right amount of mascara. Then there is that Online Liquid Eye Liner which totally does away with smudging thanks to wickedly smart gliding wheel delivery system. You have to check this one out, mamas! Lastly, the Beauty by PopSugar Eye Shimmer in Out of This World is the perfect glow for day or night functions.

Friday 5 Finds by Pamela Pekerman

Red Carpet Ready Beauty: FRIDAY 5 FINDS

Hey Mamas,

I’m coming at you with Red Carpet ready goodies in this week’s Friday Five Finds including how to get fuller lashes, glowing skin, even a sweat absorbing garment shield.

So, whether you’re going on a date with the hubby, planning a fun dress-up Oscars viewing party at home, or simply thinking ahead to wedding season, you’ll want to check out my Pam-tested picks.

Red Carpet Ready Lashes

Go big or go home with Grande Cosmetics Mascara, formulated to boost lash volume. Plus, it’s waterproof. So, enjoy that Kleenex moment while Emma Stone accepts her win for Best Actress in La La Land.

PS Use this in the morning when you’re running off to daycare and have no time for any other makeup … or even a shower. It’s an instant fake-awake that will certainly distract from the fact that you might be wearing the same shirt you picked the kids up in, the previous night. #ItHasntHappenedYet #ItCouldHappen

Red Carpet Ready Dress No Mess

I’m a sweater. Wearing long sleeve dresses, has always been a problem. When I was little my mom would cut up some special fabric and sow oval shields under my armpit area, which would absorb my sweat.

These days, I use Hollywood Fashion Garment Shields, disposable apparel shields. I have no shame in my sweat-free game. #KeepingItHonest

Red Carpet Ready Skin

I’ve been testing a lot of masks, lately and I love The True Tincture Chamomile Mask from belif. Belif which stands for “believe in truth” is a cleaner-greener brand that’s becoming a staple in my beauty repertoire.
This tincture mask is loaded with real, organic chamomile flowers that will sooth and deeply hydrate your already glorious face. #EcoMama

Red Carpet Ready Glow

Never have I been so in love with a bronzer, as I am with Vita Liberata Trystal Minerals Self-Tanning Bronzing Minerals. I’m not sure about the “self-tanning” part, and the claim to long lasting glow with prolonged use.

But, I can 10000% confirm my skin has never looked better, than when I apply this miraculous bronzing dust of goodness. #GoldenGoddessAlert

Red Carpet Ready Body

I promise to stop selecting finds from This Works, when This Works stops working!

If you’re looking to cover up skin imperfections and walk your Red Carpet with head-to-toe confidence, lather on Perfect Legs Skin Miracle. It helps diminish the appearance of skin discoloration and scars. #SexyLegsContest

If you are in the market for new earrings feel free to call 1-800-CHOPARD. As my friends as Chopard so kindly told me, the price is available upon request. My response what, “do I dare request”. Hmmm?!!
