Probably the easiest make-up tricks for moms are to focus one specific area and not try to put on a ‘full face’. Because you’re always pressed for time, concentrate on one area you want to highlight and work on that. For example, if you want to play up your eyes, go for a neutral or light eyeshadow – these don’t require a lot of precise application, like dark or dramatic colours do, so you won’t spend precious minutes trying to get your eyeshadow perfect. Then slick on some waterproof mascara, because you never know where the day takes you.
For lips, a tinted lipgloss works wonders – it’s quick and easy to slap on, no need to worry about the colour bleeding and if it rubs off during the day you can whip it out of your pocket for quick re-application. If you like your foundations, try a tinted moisturiser with an SPF, so you’ve got a sunscreen, moisturiser and foundation all in one!
