Mom Makeup Refresh {Places for Mom Pampering}


makeup applicationI had baby number three at the end of 2017. Either being pregnant or nursing for nearly six years straight, this mom was ready for a change. Since a new wardrobe was out of the question, I thought some new skin care products and makeup might just do the trick (also much more cost-effective). Plus, looking good and feeling good definitely ups my mom game.

Just in time for a Spring refresh, I’ve rounded up a list of Columbus-area locations for makeup application. Many of them offer additional services, like massages, facials and mani/pedis, so you can make a day out of it and enjoy some extra pampering. There are a range of prices and offerings available (free is my favorite!). Start dropping hints now, Mother’s Day is May 13. 

Grab your girlfriends – or take a kid-free solo trip – and enjoy some refreshment! Get some extra mileage out of your new look by planning an outing afterward, perhaps date night or shopping with your bestie!

Please share in the comments your favorite places for some fresh makeup or ideas and activities that provide you with some much-needed renewal.

Emily Bice grew up in a small, Ohio farming community west of Columbus. It wasn't until she met her college sweetheart and future husband that her mind was opened to living elsewhere. They say love makes you do crazy things which lead Emily and her Texan husband to living in Central America for two years. After much adventure and traveling, she ended up back in Columbus where the real adventure began: motherhood. She is the mom of two young boys and an infant daughter and wife to the ultimate man's man. She's living her dream as a stay at home mom but will be the first to admit that she is far from having it all figured out. Her hardest parenting moments are typically around nap time and bedtime and after particularly rough episodes she can be found online shopping. In a former chapter of life, Emily worked in non-profit raising funds and awareness for important causes. Today, she spends her time playing and snuggling with her three children, traveling to and from her husband's lacrosse company's events and socializing with friends and family. When she has any free time, she usually wastes it trying to figure out what to do.
