It’s no surprise that doing your makeup with your kiddos around is impossible. However, just because you have kiddos doesn’t mean you can’t take time out for yourself, too! It’s important for your sanity and for your confidence to make sure you make time for yourself. Your children will appreciate it when you’re not running around like a crazy woman barking orders. A little bit of TLC in the morning will make for a more calm and collected momma during the day. These ultimate quick beauty routine steps will have your makeup done within 5-10 minutes!
Mix Your Moisturizer and Your Foundation:
This saves time and allows your foundation to cover more area. Moisturizer is really important in order to keep your youthful appearance and protect your skin during the day. Now for the foundation. If you don’t already use it, is really is the best way to look like you got ready this morning!
Add Powder, Bronzer, and Blush:
After your foundation and moisturizer combo has dried, come back with your powder to set it. Setting your face with powder will make sure your makeup lasts all day long (as long as you’re not sweating). Sweep a little bronzer on your cheeks, your neck and forehead. So far this should only have taken about 2-3 minutes. We aren’t getting fancy!
Next, sweep some blush on the apples of your cheeks and you’re all done!
This usually takes me a few minutes. If you have long, dark eyelashes you can skip this step if you are really crunched for time! However, if you have an extra minute, literally 60 seconds, mascara will make the whole face come together!
I recommend filling in your eyebrows if they need to be filled in but that is a personal preference! This routine should take no longer than 5-7 minutes. We aren’t doing eyeshadow or lining our lips, we are keeping it simple. Don’t feel guilty for spending a little time on yourself. Whether you know it or not spending a little time prepping yourself for the day will make the rest of your day more manageable and more enjoyable. Let us know what beauty tips and tricks you have mastered to get ready in a hurry! Doing makeup with kids around is possible and if you can manage to get up a little earlier can be a peaceful process.
