Mini Makeover on the Go

now, everyone is familiar with the cliché of the harried working mom with no time for herself and no “beauty budget” to speak of. The truth is it’s become standard for adults, parents and non-parents alike, to be overworked and perpetually be running late.

The overscheduled Professional is almost a status symbol in America. This theme is explored in Brigid Schulte’s book, Overwhelmed: Work, Love and Play When No One Has The time and in this article introducing the book.

We all want to be our best, achieve as much as possible and especially provide a good life for our children. We spend our lives checking off mental to-do lists, rushing to and from work, and barely giving ourselves the chance to enjoy the families we love so much.

Smart Cover may not be able to help you achieve work/life balance, but we can make looking good simpler and a lot less time-consuming. We have products that are great for the low-maintenance girl just trying to get out the door in the morning.

Smart Cover’s Flawless Face to Go is designed to conceal your flaws while bringing out your natural beauty in four simple steps: start with the Perfect Touch Camouflage Crème to conceal facial imperfections; then apply a little setting powder; give your lips color and shine with the Two-in-One Glow Stick, which doubles as a creamy blush!

You may spend all day in a cubicle, but a light dusting of Smart Cover’s Believable Bronzer on your face and body will make it look like you just came back from a beautiful, sun-drenched island and you don’t have a worry in the world.

We’re all doing the best we can. Making time for yourself to breathe and be happy is as essential to your health as the multivitamin you gulp down with your morning coffee. Even something as simple as promising yourself a ten-minute walk in the sunshine every day can make a huge difference. Now that spring is finally here, why not give yourself that small gift?

Great Tattoo Debate

Tattoos Before & After Smart Cover Self-expression is a beautiful thing and tattoos can be too. But sometimes there are circumstances that make you wish you could hide that dolphin on your lower back or the encouraging words written in Sanskrit on the inside of your wrist. What looked fantastic on “College You” may not be quite what you’re going for when it comes to “Wedding Day You” or even “Corporate Professional You.”

Luckily, Smart Cover Cosmetics has a solution that, unlike some alternatives, is completely pain-free and very cost-effective!

Our Concealing Crème has been used for tattoo coverage by NFL cheerleaders who love their “tats” but have to adhere to league regulations of attire and appearance. For these ladies, the waterproof, sweat-proof and smudge-resistant Concealing Crème is the perfect way to hide their tattoos without worrying about the effects of humidity and perspiration, not to mention keeping their uniforms pristine.

For smaller surface areas, some of our customers like to go over the tattoo with our Smart Cover Stick first, because the concentrated pigment and easy application (it rolls on just like lipstick) does a great job of neutralizing the colors in a tattoo. For larger areas on the body, we recommend our Color Corrector first to neutralize the color of the tattoo, then apply the concealing Creme to ensure complete opaque coverage.

If you’re planning a day of fun in the sun and don’t want the world to see your tattoo peeking out from your bikini, don’t worry! Smart Cover’s Concealing Crème is formulated to last even if you decide to go for a dip in the pool. (For best results, apply the concealer and let it dry for five minutes.)

Permanent removal of your tattoos with laser surgery can still leave traces of the design on your skin, even after multiple (painful, expensive) sessions. This article from explains more about that process. Furthermore, just because you don’t want your tattoo to be the centerpiece of your wedding photos doesn’t mean you’re ready to say goodbye to it forever.

Smart Cover’s Concealing Crème lets you have it both ways!
