here’s no job that’s more rewarding than being a #1 mommy. That being said, I never said it was the easiest. Moms are the masters of morning routines, whether it’s shuttling the kids to school and soccer practice, or running errands and tossing lunch bags in all directions. Having time to spare to do makeup and nail that perfect cat-eye liner might be a bit ambitious, even for the most experienced mamas.
Here’s how all the moms out there can nail their makeup in five steps, with five products, in five minutes and still be the best boss lady out there:
Step One: Wake up those eyes with some long and luscious eyelashes. No need to waste time with a curler with a curling mascara like this one from Benefit Cosmetics. Just a few swipes of this mascara and you’ll be looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed!
Step Two: I’m sure that with the all-nighters spent trying to get the kids to bed has taken a toll on your eyes. If you find that dark under-eye circles leave you looking tired throughout the day, just dab a couple drops of a liquid concealer like this highlighting formula from Maybelline. You’ll look in the mirror and instantly find that you look much less exhausted and much more like your true, loving supermom self.
Step Three: Even out that skin tone with a lightweight tinted moisturizer. Olay’s Fresh Effects BB Cream is perfect for anybody on the go. Not only is the BB cream sure to make your face look radiant and refreshed, it’ll even your skin tone and protect against UV damage with its SPF power. If you’re in a rush, apply and blend with your fingers for effortless, natural coverage.
Step Four: It’s time to bring that glow back to your skin! For those tight on time, a cheek tint or stain might be the best option for you. This natural cheek stain from Tarte will give you a healthy, natural glow that’s easy to apply with the stick applicator. Do without the brushes and powder and you’ll see your cheeks looking even more dewy than ever!
Step Five: Don’t forget about those lips! When it comes to finding the right balance between shine and color, knowing the perfect gloss can be tough. The Super Lip Gloss from Burt’s Bees is 100% natural and sure to leave your lips feeling soft and supple without the gooey stickiness that many other lip-glosses leave. Pucker up and apply to complete your five-minute mommy makeover!
