Beauty Tips For Moms
Juggling our roles as a mom and a woman is pretty crazy. Taking care of our kids, yes we can do that hands down but can we take care of ourselves while doing that? The answer is ABSOLUTELY! If you have an hour to beautify yourself then hail to you but what if you only have 10 minutes before you had out that door?
Here are some beauty tips that we can do to still look good even though time is a disadvantage:
❣ Messy Buns – You can never go wrong with this style. Not only is it trendy and super easy but it’s quick too! All you need is a hair tie/hair elastic and you’re good to go.
❣ Braids – Side braid, ponytail braid or full braid. Doesn’t matter how you style your braid but this is probably the most known hairstyle ever.
❣ Ponytails – It makes you look less stressed if you have your hair up. Doesn’t matter how high you put your ponytail, it will surely make a statement.
❣ Dry Shampoo – Don’t have the time to take a shower? No worries, dry shampoo can help make your hair smell and look good.
❣ Concealer – This beauty product is essential especially if you didn’t get a lot of sleep the night before. Just apply it under your eyes and onto those unwanted stress marks. This will make you appear like you slept for 10 hours when in fact you only had 3!:)
❣ Highlighter – This product is useful for added glow on your face.
❣ Multi Tasking Beauty Products – Use products that serves more than one purpose. Some lipsticks can also be used for cheek stains. You can use tinted moisturizer which also serves as your foundation.
❣ Wear something you are comfortable with BUT not pajamas. What’s the use of the hair and make up if you go out wearing your pj’s. It won’t take you an hour to pick a nice top and probably your favorite jeans.
Always remember that no matter how much time we have in our hands juggling motherhood and being a woman, we need to have time for ourselves too. My mother always told me that how you take care of yourself will reflect on how you take care of your kids.
