The HMB Team’s Top Beauty Picks

I always like to hear what works for my friends – whether it be a good recipe, a new workout routine, or in this case…what they use in their daily makeup routine. There are SO many choices out there!  When I stand in the aisle looking at all the eyeshadow, lipgloss, or foundation — I go blank. So, recommendations are a must!

That’s why we decided to share what *we* like! From mascara to foundation, we are sharing our favorite makeup items with you! What we have tried, tested, use, and LOVE. We are not experts. Just moms who put on a little makeup every now and again. But really, that’s what I like about something like this. Real people using real products. Here you go!
