We get it. Between the diapers, feedings, and your very long
to-do list, the last thing you want to worry about is makeup. But you deserve a
few minutes a day to feel like your best “you!” Check out the tips below and
share with us your go-to quick makeup routines in the comments.
1. Quick Conceal
Give yourself a clean palette in five easy steps. Maybe tomorrow
you can grab another few minutes to add a little blush or teach yourself some contouring techniques?
2. Just the eyes
Quick "lazy girl" #motd today inspired by @shaaanxo I used the @thekatvond Shade + Light contour palette, & @thebalm_cosmetics Mary Lou-manizer for my eyes & face, @tartecosmetics Smashing blush, @colourpopcosmetics Swerve and Exit pencil liners, @toofaced BTS mascara and Vanilla BB cream, and @makeupforeverofficial 202 gloss #shaaanxo #katvond #thebalm #tarte #tartecosmetics #colourpop #colourpopcult #colourpopcosmetics #toofaced #toofacedcosmetics #makeupforever #easymakeup #quickmakeup #minimalmakeup
How about just focusing on your eyes today? Practice your
eyebrow technique, pick an eye shadow that compliments your outfit, and top it off
with some mascara – maybe even false eyelashes! The eyes are the windows to the
soul, of course, so why not add a pretty window treatment?
3. Pucker up
Just do it. Treat yourself to a ridiculously expensive
lipstick and just wear it around the house. But before you take such a
beautiful (and pricey) leap, look into what will your most complimentary shade.
You’ll find plenty of lipstick
quizzes online, as well as articles
and suggestions on colors. Even better, most high-end makeup counters at your
local department store will have professional makeup artists on-hand to give
you a mini makeover and try out different shades. Make a day of it and have a
mama/baby day out – beautify with baby!
4. 15 minutes to a new face
mama has a YouTube
page with lots of tutorials, but this
video is specifically for moms on the go. The eyebrows and contouring may
be a challenge for those of us who aren’t used to wearing makeup regularly, but
there are some great tips for a quick, beautiful look.
5. Dark circles under your eyes?
When all else fails, glitter.
