A post shared by Ashleigh Louer (@ashleighlouer) on

“My top skincare and makeup picks [are products that] I used during my pregnancy and continue to use as a new mother — all with safe ingredients and are multi-use for on the go moms!”

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mist, $48

“I loved using this mist throughout the day for an instant dewy skin pick me up. It instantly hydrates and refreshes skin.”

Vintner’s Daughter Active Botanical Serum, $185

“This multi-use serum does it all! Its calming, spa-like scent is so relaxing and it really brightens my skin instantly.”

Mun Skincare Pure Argan Oil, $70

“A luxurious Argan body oil that I apply after every shower. It soaks in quickly and makes skin so soft! I loved this in combination with  Mun’s Body Toning Serum ($75)an antioxidant serum that brightens skin, and I don’t have one stretch mark.”

Tata Harper Volumizing Lip & Cheek Tint, $36

“I used this both as a tinted lip conditioner and on my cheeks for a  hint of color. Smells great and is so quick and easy to apply on the go.”

RMS Living Luminizer, $38

“My favorite highlighter and secret for faking a pregnancy glow! I use my fingers to tap a bit on my cheekbones, on cupid’s bow and on eyelids.”

Sharzad Kiadeh, Professional Makeup Artist and The SASS Co-Host

100% Pure Fruit Pigmented Lip & Cheek Tint in Grapefruit Glow, $25

“This is a great product because it’s a two in one lip & cheek tint and it’s very easy to apply. It gives a quick pop of color to help new mamas from looking like they’ve been up all night. Added bonus is that it’s an all natural, organic, vegan, chemical free product so you don’t have to feel guilty about it rubbing up against a newborn!”

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick, $46

“This [foundation] evens out skin tone and gives your face a total natural looking finish but somehow manages to hide any and all imperfections. It’s great for new mamas because it’s incredible simple to apply. You can put it directly on your face and rub it in with your fingers OR if you’re feeling fancy use a buffing brush.”

Molly R. Stern, Celebrity Makeup Artist

Jurlique Rosewater Balancing Mist, $24

“I highly recommend a hydrating rose water mist or spray [like] Jurlique or Glossier. This is great to have by your bedside to give a little refresh and boost when you have to wake up and tend to the baby. It’s a one-second self-care treat to ground you before diving into that middle-of-the-night feeding.”

YSL Beauty Glossy Lip Stain, $36

“Just a little color on the lips can instantly make you fee more human and put-together when you haven’t had the time to shower. I love YSL’s Glossy Lip Stain ($36) or [a drugstore alternative like] L’Oréal Colour Riche Caresse Wet Shine Stain ($10). They’re sheer [which] helps you not feel overdone and the fact that it’s a stain will keep it from getting all over your new baby’s face and head when you smother the little critter with kisses!”
