Hi there, it’s Jessica, one of the 5M4M interns here sharing with you some quick beauty tips and a simple beauty routine for the hot summer months.
As most of us mothers know, our daily summer schedules consist of packing lunches for camp, applying sunscreen, bath time, play time, and sleep time. Honestly, we are lucky if we can even fit a shower in there somewhere! So our ‘beauty’ time is minimal.
This beauty routine takes no longer than 10 minutes, leaving you effortlessly gorgeous and ready to tackle the day.
After face is washed and moisturizer has been applied, use concealer under eyes and in any dark spots, then blend.
Apply BB (beauty balm) or CC (color correction) cream. These creams work as a foundation and provide coverage with added skin care benefits such as anti-oxidants, SPF, and dark spot corrector.
Lightly dust (in clockwise rotation) a mineral makeup/powder to control any shine.
Step 4: (optional)
Apply a natural colored eyeshadow palette. Example: Ivory, Light Brown & Chocolate. This will allow your eyes to pop without looking like you overdid it just to go to the grocery store.
Apply mascara. It’s amazing what a little mascara can do for tired mommy eyes.
Apply a tinted lip balm – with SPF, of course. Or if you want to be daring, apply a brighter color like soft pink or melon. A little color can go a long way!
