When you become a mom, your kids always come first, and that’s the way that it should be. However, just because you’re a mommy, that doesn’t mean you can’t look and feel as good as you used to. The difference between being a mom and not being a mom is that everything needs to be done quickly. From straightening your hair to applying your makeup, time is always of the essence.
With that in mind, I thought I would share some tips for perfecting the art of beautiful makeup application. Take these on board and you can ensure that no matter how much time you have, your makeup always looks beautiful.
The first step to take is to get inspiration. By getting inspiration when it comes to applying your makeup, this will help you to find a look that you love. Ideally, for a quick makeup look, you want to opt for something that’s natural, as these looks tend to be easier to perfect. Go online and look at a few different makeup looks to get an idea of what styles you like. Any looks that you think would look good on you, save and use for inspiration. You may even be able to find step-by-step guides for each look, if you can, save these too.
Practice makes perfect
When it comes to applying your makeup quickly, practice makes perfect. You need to establish a routine that you apply your products in so that every day you instantly know what to do. For example, you might apply primer, foundation, concealer and then setting powder. You may then put blush, highlighter, and bronzer on, before turning your attention to your eye makeup. It’s important to practice applying your makeup so that you’re able to get into a routine and are able to apply your makeup more quickly. Everyone knows that practice makes perfect, so the more you’re able to practice, the better.
Invest in some good quality products
One of the most important things when it comes to applying your makeup quickly is that you have good quality products to work with. This is because good quality products tend to be easier to use and only need to be applied once because they’re more highly pigmented. Take the time to read product reviews online, to see which products would be best for you. When you find a product that you like the sound of, such as the Violet Voss Holy Grail palette, take the time to read up on it. Go to your local beauty store and ask to see and swatch it, so that you can make sure it’s right for you. Look at how easy the colors pick up on the brush and how simple it is to apply and blend.
Use products that are quick and easy to use
When it comes to quick makeup application, it’s essential that you use products that are easy to use. For this, the best products to use are stick products, such as foundation sticks, blush sticks, and so on. This is because all you have to do is draw them onto your skin and blend them in with your fingers and voila, your makeup is done. There are plenty to stick products to choose from, from high end to drugstore. So whatever it is that you need, be it a highlighter stick or a blusher, there’s sure to be one that’s suitable. Plus, by using these types of products, you don’t even need to use a makeup brush, making application quicker and easier.
Set makeup in place
The most important thing to remember when you’re a busy mom is to make sure to set your makeup in place. When life is hectic you won’t have time to redo your makeup, should it end up in a mess. That’s why it’s so important that you make time to set it in place with a making setting powder and makeup setting spray. That way, no matter what you spend your day doing, your makeup should stay in place all day long. Be it swimming with the kids or baking, set your makeup in place and it should stay looking good all day.
As a mom, making time for yourself can seem impossible. That’s why if you want to be able to wear makeup every day, you need to be able to apply it incredibly quickly and easily. The good news is that if you know what you’re doing this is much easier than you would think. It’s just a case of doing plenty of practice to ensure that you get it right.
