Makeup brushes and cosmetics tips on a table for busy moms.

Moms rarely have the luxury of indulging in spa days or elaborate beauty regimes.

Their days are usually made up of looking after children, homes, careers, husbands, and dinner!

Despite having a million things on the go almost all the time, most moms desperately want to look good and do not want to overlook their appearance just because they are busy.

The simplest solution to keep you looking your best is for you to follow these five quick makeup tips below:

1. Take Care of Your Skin

Taking care of your skin should not have to cost an arm and a leg.

Good skincare habits go far beyond your morning and evening regime. Quit smoking, cut back on fast or processed foods, eat more vegetables, and get enough sleep. Although at least two of those will likely feel impossible to achieve, nothing is out of reach when you put your mind to it.

Drink plenty of water throughout the day and take a hair and skincare supplement if you feel like you are falling behind with your skincare.

2. Moisturize

Never underestimate the power of the perfect skincare products.

Do not believe the hype that only dry skin types require moisturizing – that could not be further from the truth!

If you have oil skin that is prone to breaking out, choose a water-based moisturizer to ensure there is no unnecessary oil build-up after applying it. Having supple skin will immediately make your face look and feel ten times better so keep it hydrated regularly.

Always apply sunscreen first and then moisturizer or choose one with built-in SPF protection.

3. Focus On Your Eyes

Give your face a few subtle shades of color.

Pick a palette of eye makeup that suits your eye color and makes your eyes sparkle.

Ultra-pigmented colors last longer and are known for their high-intensity colors. Use nudes for a quick and stylish daytime look and save the darker tones for an evening look. 

Your eyes are the window to your soul, so make them look as lovely as possible with the right makeup choices. Choose the colors that make you feel your best – if applied properly, most colors can be used at all ages.

4. Eyebrows First

Pregnancies, childbirth, and age can negatively affect even the thickest eyebrows.

Do not blame yourself for this – it is just part of nature. As a busy mom, you can easily use an eyebrow pencil to fill the gaps and secure the most wayward eyebrow hairs with a clear gel.

Transform your face by taking care of your eyebrows first – they are one of the most prominent features on your face and deserve the appropriate attention to make them look their best.

It is much easier to rock the no-makeup look when your eyebrows are perfect.

5. Total Trifecta

In times when you only have five minutes to spare for your makeup, focus on the trifecta of facial beauty – brows, mascara, and lips. If all you do is neaten up and fill in your brows, apply some moisturizing lippy, and whip on some mascara, you can rock the minimal makeup look.

You would be amazed at the difference those three simple things make to your aesthetic. You can choose a bold or subtle lip color– whichever you prefer.

If you follow these tips above, you can tick off everything on your list for the day – and look fabulous while you do it!
