Whether your little one is a few months old or a few years old, when children become our main focus, almost everything else seems to go by the wayside-including our beauty routine. While we might not have 30 minutes to spare anymore in order to put together a flawlessly made-up face, we still want to look our best when we leave the house.

When it comes to makeup for busy moms, it's all about prioritizing. By creating a short and sweet routine to highlight your best features in the least amount of time possible, you can always put your best face forward when running errands or meeting up for a mommy play date, even if you only have less than 10 minutes to do it.

Healthy Skin is Happy Skin

If you want to look your best without relying on a heavy dose of daily makeup, it's important to take care of your skin. Healthy skin has a natural glow that makes us look and feel our best. To keep your skin healthy, make sure to choose a good daily face wash based on your skin type as well as a great moisturizer, preferably with built-in SPF protection of at least 15.

It's also a good idea to exfoliate, either using a face wash or an exfoliating facial mask, at least once a week. Depending on your skin type, you may want to increase this to two or three times a week, just make sure not to over-exfoliate. Removing all the oils from your face will only make you produce more oil to make up for it, which then results in irritated, red, and/or dry skin.

Create a Fresh Palette

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 a ton 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.
