Celebrate Mother's Day with Timeliness Makeup Tricks

Mother's Day is a special occasion to honor the women who have shaped our lives and imparted wisdom that transcends generations. For many of us, our mothers have been our first beauty mentors, sharing makeup tricks and tips that have become part of our daily routines. As we celebrate Mother's Day with gratitude and love, let's explore some of the makeup tricks passed down from mother to daughter, reflecting on their timeless wisdom and considering how some may be helpful while others may be outdated.

Timeless Makeup Tricks from Mom

The Power of Lipstick

From a classic red lip to a subtle nude shade, moms have long understood the transformative power of lipstick. A swipe of color can instantly brighten the face and boost confidence, making it a staple in many beauty routines. For the ultimate nude lip look, we recommend Nefertiti Nude Matte Liquid Lips.

Less is More

Many mothers have preached the importance of embracing natural beauty and enhancing our features rather than masking them. Simple makeup looks that focus on enhancing our natural glow never go out of style.

Skincare First

Before makeup, skincare reigns supreme. Moms have emphasized the importance of a good skincare routine, including cleansing, moisturizing, and sun protection, as the foundation for healthy, radiant skin. The same applies to lip care… Putting lipstick on dry, dehydrated lips will not have the effect you are after. That is why we recommend indulging in a lip care treatment that will leave your lips looking plump and healthy, allowing for a smooth and silky lipstick application.


Intensive Lip Hydrator

Try this:


  • Exfoliate your lips with the luxurious ARMÉE Microcrystal Sugar Lip Scrub
  • Apply a small amount of the ARMÉE Intensive Lip Hydrator (containing hyaluronic acid and antioxidants, and available in all ARMÉE Lip Care Kits)
  • Cover your lips with the ARMÉE Collagen Lip Mask, and leave for 10 minutes


Your lipstick look will thank you for it!

Quality Product Investments

Quality over quantity has always been a mantra when it comes to makeup. Moms often advise investing in a few high-quality products that work well for your skin type and tone, rather than accumulating an excess of makeup items.

Take lipstick for example… Most of us have many shades of lipstick, but we generally return to the one that lasts the longest and that doesn’t dry our lips, right? So why not invest in more of these? ARMÉE’s range of matte liquid lipsticks were designed to be just that. Inclusive of superior pigment, natural humectants, and candelilla plant wax extracts, they not only offer perfect coverage but also aid in lip hydration and cell renewal for a smooth and luxurious finishing touch. All without drying your lips! (Boadicea Blush is an all-time favorite…)

Outdated Makeup Tricks to Avoid

We know, over-lining and super shiny lips might seem like timeless looks to you, but it might be time to consider a new way of doing things… Let’s look at some of mom’s makeup tricks that have become outdated today.

Overlining Lips Dramatically

In the past, overlining lips significantly beyond their natural shape was a common trick to create the illusion of fuller lips. However, exaggerated overlining can often appear unnatural and draw attention for the wrong reasons. Today, a more subtle approach to lip lining is preferred, focusing on enhancing the natural shape of the lips for a more flattering look.

You can take this one step further and invest in a vegan lip liner, friendly to both lips and planet alike.

Matching Lip Liner and Lipstick

Matching lip liner and lipstick shades precisely was once a popular technique to create a seamless lip look. However, this method can appear harsh and dated. Nowadays, many makeup artists and enthusiasts prefer using a lip liner that closely matches the natural lip color or one shade darker to define the lips subtly while allowing the lipstick to stand out on its own.

Why not try ARMÉE’s Dust Lip Liner with the Boadicea Blush Matte Liquid Lipstick? It’s simply gorgeous…

Applying Lipstick Straight from the Bullet

In the past, it was common practice to apply lipstick directly from the bullet without any precision tools. This method often resulted in uneven application and difficulty achieving crisp lines, especially with bold or dark lipstick shades. Today, using a lip brush or a lip liner to outline and fill in the lips offers more control and precision, resulting in a more polished and professional-looking lip makeup.

Luckily, ARMÉE’s Matte Liquid Lipsticks come complete with an angled precision applicator to help you create the look you desire, “straight from the bullet”.

Using Lip Gloss All Over the Lips

There was a time when applying lip gloss generously all over the lips was considered a must for achieving a glossy, youthful look. However, excessive lip gloss application can feel sticky and messy, and it tends to wear off quickly, requiring frequent reapplication. Nowadays, many opt for a more controlled application of lip gloss, focusing on the center of the lips to create a subtle plumping effect and enhance the overall lip look without overdoing it.

By acknowledging these outdated lip product tricks, we can adapt our makeup routines to embrace more modern techniques that enhance our natural beauty while staying true to current trends and preferences.

This Mother's Day, let's celebrate the beauty of the bond between mothers and daughters, acknowledging the lessons learned and the love shared through the art of makeup. Whether we're embracing classic beauty techniques or embracing new trends, the beauty of motherhood and the legacy of shared knowledge continue to inspire and uplift us all.

Happy Mother's Day to all the amazing moms who have touched our lives with their wisdom, grace, and love.
