Moms these days are busy with juggling multiple responsibilities. At times, you can feel like you’re racing to keep up with your children and job, spending time with your husband and friends and maintaining the home. With so many things tugging you in different directions, keeping up with your makeup routine can seem impossible.
As hard as it can be to find time to yourself, taking care of your makeup is important. Everything won’t fall apart if you take five minutes for yourself, and that five minutes can make a serious difference in your life. Makeup can boost your confidence and improve self-esteem, which is especially important for moms who don’t have many opportunities to feel sexy anymore. Most importantly, women with high self-esteem are perceived differently by others. Being confident in yourself and your appearance will help you command more respect.
Makeup is important to the way you look and feel, so it’s worth it to take the time to take care of yourself. Here are a few makeup tips for making a five-minute routine that will help you look and feel your best without taking too much time and effort:
1. Invest in eyelash extensions. These beauties can add length and volume to your lashes, helping you look awake when you’re secretly crying to go back to sleep. Because extensions will last for days or weeks without further upkeep, they’re a great low-maintenance option for women who don’t have the time to mess with mascara and heavy eyeliner.
2. Obtain a high-quality makeup set in natural hues. By buying a set, you’ll have complementary shades at your fingertips without needing to think about it. Neutral hues help you put your best face forward no matter the occasion. One great choice is STILA’s Garden of Glamour Makeup Set, which offers a palette of garden-inspired hues like golden eye shadow, peony cheek cream or banana berry lip glaze.
3. Embrace self-discipline. As a busy mom, instilling discipline is in your nature. Turn those skills inward and discipline yourself to take five minutes for yourself every day to look your best and get ready for the day. You wouldn’t start your day without brushing your teeth; consider your makeup as an extension of tooth brushing.
With a little discipline, you can make your makeup routine become second-nature. Busy moms spend so much of their time doing things for others; today is the day you should start allowing yourself the same kindness.
