It is a common perception that moms have too many responsibilities and thus looking good is not a priority. However this notion is fast changing. Even moms can look glamorous with some time management tactics, setting priorities and finding alternative easier methods of personal care and grooming. Listed here are some easy tips to help moms wear quick makeup.
1. Combine steps
Save precious time off your daily morning routine by choosing products sensibly so that several steps are combined into one. For example, a tinted moisturizer with added SPF is a great product. This is a three-in-one product that works as a moisturizer, sunscreen and make-up base or foundation. The product is light and creamy because of the moisturizer in it and just a tint of color to give your face that instant glow. Choose your tinted moisturizer that has at least an SPF 15 to guard yourself against harmful rays of the sun.
2. Skip the lipstick
Save lipsticks for special occasions. For your daily dressing up, keep it simple and elegant. A tinted lip gloss is not just easy to apply but it also makes your pout look plump and irresistible. This is one product that saves a lot of your time without compromising on your look. A lip-gloss also does not look bad when it starts to fade a little. So that ways, you also do not have to worry about constant touch-up sessions. Moreover, several brands of long-lasting lip-glosses are also now available.
3. Go easy on the eyeshadow
Stick to minimal eye make up and if you must use eye-shadow on a daily basis, pick a color closer to your skin tone. Drastic and bold colors require detailed and complicated application, which may get cumbersome and messy. Instead, stick to neutral browns and peaches to add just a punch of color without worrying to go overboard with it. Also stay away from shocking bright colors on your eyelids if you have prominent dark circles. Colors like red, purple tend to make dark circles far more visible.
4. Make mascara last
If you are really fond of mascara and canât leave your home without it, then you must use good quality mascara that lasts longer and is also easy on the eyes. Even if you have no plans to go swimming or have a rain dance session, it is still better to opt for a waterproof variety. This kind definitely lasts longer, thereby saving your time that you would usually utilize for touch-ups. If you wear contact lenses or have some kind of allergies and chemical sensitivities, best is to use natural, organic or hypoallergenic mascara.
5. Know what you need
To avoid early morning rush, just focus on your best features or the neglected oneâs that are screaming for attention. If your skin looked a little drained out and dry, do not skip the moisturizing ritual. No oneâs going to notice your mascara when your skin looks dull. So set your priorities straight. If you have prominent dark circles, a brightening under eye gel and a concealer must be your first priority. If you are blessed with a glowing skin, you just need a splash of lip-gloss or mascara.
