Time-Saving Makeup Routine for Busy Moms: Before and After
If you consider yourself a high-achieving woman, then juggling multiple responsibilities can leave little time for yourself. Add in also being busy mom, it's easy to overlook self-care, particularly when it comes to your beauty routine. However, with a few time-saving techniques and the right products, you can level up your makeup game and achieve a flawless look that enhances your natural beauty. Let's explore some time-saving tips!
#1 Don't forget the prep! Before diving into your makeup routine, it's crucial to start with a clean, moisturized face. Cleansing and hydrating your skin will ensure a smooth canvas for makeup application and provide the necessary nourishment for mature skin.
#2 Prime yourself for long-lasting makeup! To save time and streamline your routine, start by using a multitasking product like a primer that offers both skin-smoothing benefits and extends the longevity of your makeup. Look for a primer that suits your skin type, addressing concerns such as fine lines, enlarged pores, or uneven skin tone. Applying a small amount of primer will create a smooth base and help your makeup stay in place throughout the day. If you are using cream makeup, make sure your primer does not contain silicone as that can cause your makeup to slide off more easily.
#3 Make the switch! Consider switching to cream makeup, especially if you have maturing skin. Seint cream makeup consists of multi-purpose products, including foundation, blush, highlighter, and contour, all combined into one compact palette. This innovative approach eliminates the need for multiple products and brushes, saving you valuable time.
Using a clean, dense brush or your fingertips, apply a small amount of contour to under your cheekbones, across your forehead, along the underside of your jawline, and on the sides of your nose. Use a brighter highlight color down the ridge of your nose, inner and outer corner of your eyes, center of your forehead, and the center of your chin. Use your main highlight color in all the areas where you have not already placed colors. Gently blend into your skin, evening out skin tone and covering imperfections while still maintaining a natural-looking finish.
To add a touch of color and warmth to your complexion, apply the Seint blush high on your cheekbones and/or to the apples of your cheeks if you prefer a fuller cheek look..
Next, illuminate the high points of your face, such as the cheekbones, brow bone, and bridge of the nose, with your Seint illuminator. The subtle shimmer adds radiance and dimension to your face, enhancing your features.
For those who prefer a sun kissed look, Seint's cream bronzer can be used to warm up your face. Apply it to the hollows of your cheeks, along the sides of your forehead, and your neck. Blend the product in big circles well to achieve a natural-looking glow.
#4: Define Your Eyes and Brows To save time, opt for a simple yet elegant eye makeup look. Apply a neutral eyeshadow shade across your lower lid and just above your crease under your browbone for a subtle look. Use a volumizing mascara to add length and volume to your lashes, opening up your eyes and making them appear more awake. Add a pop of light color shimmer to the inner corners of your eyes and just under your brow bone.
For the brows, use your contour or a darker shadow that matches your hair color. Fill in any sparse areas and shape your brows for a polished look. Well-groomed brows frame the face and instantly elevate your overall appearance.
#5 Don't forget your lips! Complete your time-saving makeup routine with a swipe of lip color. Your cream blush can also act as beautiful lip color offering hydration and color all in one. Adding lip color will add a touch of vibrancy to your face, completing your fresh faced look!
