Beauty Advice From 3 Stylish Moms

Their tips for how they always look and feel great.

1. The Low-Key California Girl: Brittany Cobb, 30
Interior designer, founder of The Dallas Flea, DailyCandy Dallas editor, and mom of 1-year-old Landry

Brittany Cobb’s beauty program is cool, cultivated but unfussy, and well-rounded—just what you would expect from a laid-back, born-and-bred California girl.

Breakfast: “I’m addicted to my espresso maker. I always make a latte, and right out the door I have a banana or an English muffin with peanut butter.” Snacks: “I don’t watch what I eat at lunch or dinner, so I pack healthy snacks.” Lunch: “I live on the Newporter salad at R&D Kitchen. I also love La Duni. It’s walking distance from the house, so it’s an easy trek with the baby.” Dinner: “We’re big grillers. Anytime I can sit outside with my husband, the baby, and a glass of wine, I’m happy.” Guilty Pleasures: “A hot dog from Wild About Harry’s and Yumilicious. I indulge a lot.”

“When I don’t have time to hit Equinox in Highland Park, I take my daughter on walks. Every Friday, with a group of girlfriends, we do free MoMe Yoga at NorthPark with the babies. My favorite activity is swimming. My family lives in our pool all summer. Still, holding a baby is the best workout.”

Skin Care
“I’ve used the same St. Ives Apricot Scrub ($3.50) since I was 16 years old. I wash my face morning and night. I use moisturizer—I have very dry skin—and sunscreen. Palmer’s Cocoa Butter Swivel Stick ($3) is always in my purse. I use it under my eyes and on my lips.”

Chanel joues contraste powder blush, $43,
“My morning makeup and hair routine takes 20 minutes tops. It’s not just because I don’t have the time to spend on these things, but I prefer a more ‘undone’ look. I never leave the house without mascara (Maybelline Great Lash, $6), a hint of blush (Chanel Powder Blush, $43), and something on my lips. I love Nivea’s Milk and Honey Lip Balm ($3). Susan Posnick’s Color Essential Lipstick ($19) in Dallas is my go-to lipstick.”

“I like big, beachy hair. I’ve always done the ombre look because it’s so easy. I’ve gone to Heather Stout at Osgood O’Neil for my hair color since I was a freshman at SMU. For haircuts, I go to Ryan Chambers. I also love dry shampoo; it’s a lifesaver for a new mom. But my favorite beauty weapon is the ponytail. There’s nothing more chic than pulling your hair back.”

Santa Maria Novella protective anti-stretch mark oil, $85,
“My husband and I treat ourselves by having a masseuse come to our house. I’ll watch the baby and he gets one and vice versa. I love Johnson’s Baby Lotion ($4) and Santa Maria Novella Protective Anti-Stretch Mark Oil ($85). I’ve worn Hanae Mori my whole life; people know me by it.”
