Makeup for Busy Moms
Lips are fairly subjective, but for this look, I recommend going with something light and simple like a sheer tinted lip gloss, or if you don't feel like reapplying, a lip stain. The whole idea is to create a clean, simple look that you can wear whether you are running to the grocery store, picking up your kids from soccer practice, or going out to lunch or the movies with some friends.
When you keep your makeup this simple, you are practically assured you can pair this look with anything in your closet. You can also make little tweaks to keep yourself from getting bored by trying a few different shades of lip glosses or eye shadows.
Makeup On the Go
Another benefit to perfecting your simple makeup routine is the ability to keep looking your best without having to haul a giant makeup case everywhere you go. For a quick touch up, just make sure to have your lip gloss or lip stain with you and perhaps a few oil absorbing sheets to blot away any shine should it occur. If you are using oil removing wipes, make sure to blot, not wipe. This is especially important if you are wearing makeup!
Just because we're moms doesn't mean we should stop looking good or feeling good about ourselves. While keeping up with the kids might not give us the time we used to have to indulge in making ourselves up, these quick and simple makeup tips only take a few seconds each and can give us the beauty boost we need to get through the day.
