When I teach about beauty most moms have the same common concerns. How can I look more awake? Oh! if I only had the time I would do all of those cool tips you share. I have so many things and I have no idea how to use them! Us moms we need a beauty routine that’s fast, effective and affordable. I want to share with you my top 5 quick beauty tips for moms to create the perfect look every day.
Use beauty products that are good for more than one thing. This will save time and money by reducing the number of products you need. Some quick examples: Use blush as an eyeshadow, lipstick as blush, eyeshadow as a highlighter, tinted moisturizer…
Decide the things that are most important to focus on and do them first. I recommend keeping it simple. My quick routine consists of tinted moisturizer with SPF, brows, blush that double tasks as eyeshadow, mascara (this is a MUST), tinted moisturizer and lipgloss. I use products that are portable and easy to blend and add a little pink tone to it so I’ll look fresh.
3. Use the right tools
Clean brushes that are good quality could save you a lot of time and product. The bigger and fluffier the brush the faster they work but also they create less coverage. I love tapered brushes that buff and blend the product to create a smooth coverage. Blender sponges are also a great option as long as they are clean.
4. Use dry shampoo
Washing your hair every day makes it thin and more difficult to manage. Save time by using dry shampoo every other day and remember to brush it and braid it every night so it would keep the texture. I love the Phantom Hydrating Dry Shampoo from Amika, it’s natural and very refreshing.
5. Be healthy!
Sounds simple, if you want to have a shorter more effective beauty routine preparation is key. Eat enough fruit and vegetables, drink lots of water and take care of your skin. My biggest dos are sun protection and sheet masks. Sheet masks are an excellent way to give a boost to your skincare routine.
Taking at least 5 minutes to yourself every moment does wonders for your self-esteem and energy levels. I strongly believe that beauty is even better than coffee to really wake up. I hope these quick tips help you simplify your beauty routine and create looks that you love. Let me know in the comments below if you apply any of them and what differences you see!
Have a Beautiful Day!
