Makeup tutorial for busy Moms- 10 minutes count me in!
When aren’t Moms busy? I know I am constantly busy and no time to look makeup tutorial for busy moms plus have very little time for pampering especially trying to run my own business – makeup in the mornings is honestly sometimes impossible!
This is how my first hour goes every day! My alarm clock aka my gorgeous son Ryan wakes me up at 6.30. I get dressed, wash my face and scream off to make his sandwiches. Thanks to darling Emma I can’t make peanut butter or even plain cheese – my sandwiches have to be ‘fancy’ (they are actually legendary – true story – she used to sell them at school for R15 each!!!! and to this day her friends are always asking her for them). So I make sandwiches with chicken mayo and cheese or lettuce cheese and tomato – healthy and according to my kids ‘gourmet’. Oh well the small things in life I need to take credit for right?
After sandwich making Ryan and I continue to make sure he has everything for school – often a cricket kit and/or tennis bags. We do the teeth and the hair and then we battle the traffic to school – he has a milkshake in the car and I drink cold coffee (I do make sure he puts on sunblock and I moisturize). I often have Bear with us – so we can walk along the beach and wait for the traffic to die down which can take an hour or so!
By the time I get to work my day starts, packing orders and chatting to my clients – planning my blog posts and I don’t have a spare minute for makeup. But I think I do have 10 minutes to spare especially if I can create a natural look that takes away the bags under my eyes. Because I went on a search – okay and I have to admit there were some really good ideas.
- Oil Free Primer
- Eyebrow Kit
- Pierre Rene Bronzer
- Mascara from MIYO
- Liquid Liner
- Lip Tint
- Hean Fixer Spray: Stay All Day
And these were some tricks & tips from busy mom I met on the Internet:
1) do everything you can the night before – pack lunches even
2) prepare your work clothes a week in advance
3) set the alarm for 15 minutes earlier
4) use a brush for blending foundation the sponge takes too long
5) if you can use one product for everything you will save so much time – and guess what the EGYPTIAN BRONZER is a total life saver (eyeshadow and bronzing all in one)
