Glam and Go
When I'm in a rush to head out of the house, sometimes it's really difficult for me to look my best. I'm always rocking the mom bun with no makeup and whatever shirt my hands can quickly grab out of the closet. With three kids and so little time, I feel like trying to look and feel my best is the last priority - until now. I am constantly being told if you take care of yourself, then your kids will be happy and healthy too. So I've made it a point to try and look my best, even when I'm in a rush. Below are a few quick tips on how you can glam up your look within minutes before heading out.
1. Cleansers and Moisturizers
Understanding that everyone has their own beauty regimen, I like to start my morning with a facial cleanser and moisturizer. It removes dirt and impurities and leaves your skin feeling soft and smooth.
2. Foundation and Concealer
These two go hand in hand and definitely helps revive my look. I'm always tired and it shows, so using my Cargo HD Eye Concealer goes well with my Cargo Liquid Foundation. It also hides any other imperfections or uneven skin tones on my face.
3. Eye Liner and Mascara
To help accentuate the eyes, I apply liquid eyeliner and mascara. When you're in a rush and don't have the time for blending eye shadows, I find that these two are a great combo.
Applying blush or a highlighter will add that special glow to your cheeks. I find this brings the whole look together giving more warmth and depth to your face.
5. Lipstick or Lip Gloss
Splashing a little color or shine on your lips will change the way you look seconds.
Spraying a little of your favorite perfume is essential when you're in a rush. I always want to avoid smelling like food or formula before leaving my home.
7. Quick Hairdo
I never know what to do with my hair and I find this always takes up so much of my time, so I started researching quick and easy do's online. Marie Claire had some really great ideas that were simple and easy enough to do in a short amount of time. Check it out:
