Maternity Beauty Shopping List

It seems that when you are pregnant, everyone has something to say about how much you are glowing and such. With me, when I was pregnant, I did not see that glow to be all that glamorous. I had really rosy cheeks, I mean really rosy, really my entire face was red most of the time, so when I went out, I tried really hard to cover that rosy color up. I also found that my hair was a lot different. I had more dry scalp than usual and my hair seemed to be more difficult to deal with than when I am not pregnant. On top of those issues, I also had acne, which I have rarely ever had issues with, and I noticed that this time around, I had a darkening under my eyes. I honestly found more issues with my complexion than when I was not pregnant, so when people told me that I glowed, I did not see what they saw. I did try to manage my complexion and hair the best way that I could and I learned that using what I was used to, especially when it came to hair, was the best way to go. So, I turned to products that I know and trust and I used them, so that when I went out, I did not feel so uncomfortable about my complexion and instead I could take the compliments instead of seeing them being a criticism. I chose to use products like the ones from the Olay and Cover Girls beauty lines and hair care products like Head and Shoulders. I know that I am not the only one that was in that boat either while pregnant, so when I hear that celebrity stylists also suggest using the same products, I feel better about the choice that I made to use them!!
Here are a few tips from celebrity stylists on maternity beauty so that you can make pregnant look good just like the celebrities do!

This was not a paid post and honest/original opinions were used and they are my own. Thank you to the company and/or pr agency who supplied the product for review.

I always looked tired or sick. Then again, I was mostly tired or sick.

These are good tips!

Thanks for sharing! This goes perfect with my idea of a Maternity Beauty gift box! My mother and I did something kind of like this when my sister had her first baby, we pampered her a bit and got her some great lotions and stuff. And now I want to make it a tradition, since she's planning on having a couple more little cuties, I'll be putting a gift box together with great stuff for pregnant women to make them feel better and a bit pampered. I know she'll love it!

Theres this saying that they always say a pregnant woman is glowing. But not all of us, some women need help with dark circles under their eye. Pregnant women need to feel beautiful besides feeling fat .
