When it comes to makeup for busy moms, it’s all about prioritizing. By creating a short and comfortable routine to highlight your best features in the least amount of time possible, you can always put your best face forward when running errands in the office or meeting up other people, even if you only have less than 10 minutes to do it.
Heavy makeup is usually not advisable to the Office. Make it as light as possible and still look good
Your Face: Remember that Your face is your palette, so when you want to create a simple makeup look, you need to start with a clean, fresh face. You can create your clean palette by using a foundation to even out your skin tone. There are tons of foundations out there, including mineral based foundations which can be quicker and easier to apply than a liquid or cream foundation. No matter what foundation you choose, you want to ensure it is blended well and doesn’t make your face look too matted or appear caked on. Make sure you wear the right shade of foundation if you must.
Your facial structure: It is important to know your facial structure. When you know this, there are some mistakes you would never make. E.g., if you have an Oval face, you really have no business drawing angled brows because this will only elongate your face.
Same thing goes for the round face. Don’t go about tracing straight brows. It would only flatten your face some more. What you need is a brow that would help lift your face.
Eyes: Before you apply any eye makeup, blend a creamy concealer unto your lids and into the inner corners of your eyes. This will give your shadow a base to stick to and conceal any redness. Your eye brow should be properly shaped always to make your work easier. Your brows should also be well defined because this is the most important part of your makeup. Getting it right will make everything easy for you even if you skip applying eye shadow on.
Lipsticks: Wear a bright coloured lipstick to brighten up your face. Use blotting paper to handle excess lip colour.
Blush: Instead of blush, use bronzer on your cheek bone and T-zone.
Eye-liners: Except you are going all the way with tha face painting and make-up, I suggest you do not line your under eye especially with black eye liner. Eye pencils: Use brown pencil on your brows and not black for a more natural look.
After your day…: We may have busy schedules and so we come back home tired and tempted to go to bed with our makeup on.
No no no.
Never give room for this. Remove all makeup always before going to bed as this will help you reduce the stress of fighting to make yourself look good the next day.
