If you’ve been reading my beauty blog long enough, you may remember that it was the Suave commercial of the frazzled mom turned pampered mom that inspired my Mom: Get Glamorous contest 2 years ago. So what better timing to gather up some hair styling tips for moms from Suave’s Celebrity Hairstylist, Luke O’Connor?
The Look: Stunning and Simple Side Bun
Take your regular bun from blah to WOW with a chic side bun, a popular red carpet look. It’s easy to achieve this classy, modern take on the Hollywood tradition that will have your style turning heads wherever you go.

I recently asked shu uemura’s Principal Makeup Artist, Jason Hoffman, how to achieve a great spring makeup look using their products. See what he had to say below:
Itâ€™s so easy to get inspiration for a new look for spring because nature will give you everything you need! The skin should look fresh and healthy. Note that doesnâ€™t necessarily mean tan. Fair skin can have a soft flushed look that is gorgeous. Try using the stain from shuâ€™s Mirage Lip Duo as a cream blush and lip stain. This gives you that â€œjust in from the sunâ€ glow that is perfect for spring. For a more sun kissed look, follow with a dusting of Warm Bronzing Powder all over. Keep the eyes soft yet defined. The Utopia Shadow Palette is a perfect wash of green and blue. Line the upper lash line with black liquid liner (keeping it thin) and smudge the Lilac Drawing Pencil into the lower lash line. Do something fresh and unexpected on the lips. Top the lip stain with Gloss Unlimited 325N from shu uemuraâ€™s Pink Collection.

Let’s face it, being a mom is both rewarding and exhausting. I am so in love with my 4 beautiful sons, but some days I find myself saying, “Calgon take me away!” As a beauty blogger I have access to some of the best in beauty and in celebration of Mother’s Day I am in search of the one deserving mother who stands out above all others to gift with an amazing prize package that will blow her socks off. This mom has to be extraordinary–someone who has overcome adversity, a pillar of their community, that mom you find constantly doing good for others without wanting any sort of thanks in return. Want to know the kind of mom I’m looking for? Then take a look at Jo Coiner Burzyki, the last winner of Mom: Get Glamorous.
