Please keep reading if you’re interested in learning how to look pulled together in 10 minutes or less!
1 Get Ready First Thing in the Morning
One of the best tips for moms on the go I can offer you is this one. Get ready first thing in the morning! The longer you put off getting ready for the day, the easier it is to push yourself aside. If you are a stay at home mom, you may even have less motivation to get dressed! But getting ready for the day will help you to feel better about yourself, so make sure you get dressed, brush your hair, and throw on a little makeup. This also eliminates mad rushing when you need to leave any time, because you’re already dressed and ready to go.
2 Shower at Night
When you have little people following you around everywhere, trying to get a shower may be your worse nightmare! Take my advice and get your shower at night, after the little ones are tucked into bed. This may also get you time to shave and do a facial mask. If showering at night isn’t an option, grab one during naptime. Showering while your kiddos sleep is usually best, so you don’t have to worry about anyone falling down the stairs or getting into the toilet cleaner!
3 Have a “5 Minute” Face
A “5 minute face” is a makeup look you can throw on in 5 minutes or less! Mine usually consists of concealer for blemishes or under eye circles, blush to brighten up my cheeks, brow filler, mascara and curling my lashes, and if I have another extra 30 seconds, I swipe on eyeliner and lip-gloss. Find a look that works for you and perfect it to be done in 5 minutes or less. Use your fingers to apply or blend, it’s faster! Never skip curling your lashes because it opens your eyes to look more awake.
4 Blow-out or Curl Your Hair before Bed
This tip may sound strange, but if you try it you will see how fast and easy it is to fix your hair in the morning! Your hair will only need touching up, and you can have your hair fixed in 5 minutes or less! Some days I don’t even need to touch up my hair, just finger comb it and spray into place. Another good tip for moms to remember is that getting a low maintenance hairstyle will also save time getting ready.
5 Rethink Your Wardrobe
When I became a mother, I had to rethink my wardrobe. I wanted to be comfortable, yet functional and still stylish. My wardrobe mostly consists of cute tees, maxi skirts and dresses, jeans, jackets, casual boots and sandals, and scarves. I keep my outfits basic and simple. Adding statement jewelry or a scarf can pull a simple outfit like a white tee and jeans together instantly. Moms, you don’t have to revert to yoga pants and sweatshirts, you can still be cute! Choosing your outfit the night before and laying it out is a great time saver.
6 Make Time for Yourself to Go to the Salon
Occasionally, a good pedicure or some new highlights are in order. Make appointments for yourself every few months and then do maintenance in between. This keeps you groomed, makes your job easier, and helps you to feel fresh and pretty even with a macaroni and cheese stain on your shirt (which you hid with a cute scarf before running out the door). My best tip for moms is to keep your brows tweezed because it really opens up your face and helps you look groomed!
7 Look for Beauty Shortcuts
Too tired to wash your face at night? Remove your makeup with a baby wipe! No time for a shower? Freshen your roots with dry shampoo! Didn’t get a chance to polish your nails? Buff them out to a shine in 60 seconds or less! Rushed in the shower? Use a shampoo/conditioner combo. Beauty shortcuts and multitasking products are a mom’s best friend, so take advantage of them when you need to.
Being a mom doesn’t mean you have to give up all hope of ever looking decent again! You may have less time than you had before, but you will still have the chance to get ready and put on makeup. These simple tips have really helped me since becoming a mother! Do you have any beauty and fashion tips for moms on the go to share today? Thanks for reading!
