SIX EASY BEAUTY TRICKS FOR NEW MOMS
As a new mother, you’ve learned that a child has the capacity to consume all of your free time — and then some. Even if you do manage to find a bit of time to put into your beauty routine, sleeping will probably feel like the better option! You still want to look cute, but you need a shortcut. Well, Amazing Lash Studio San Antonio has got six of them. Read on!
PREP YOUR SKIN
We know that bedtime probably feels like the highlight of your day. In fact, skin care may be the last thing on your mind late at night. However, makeup artist Angelique Velez recommends setting aside just a few moments to prep your skin for the next day. Starting the day with a clean, moisturized face makes makeup application much easier. More importantly, prepping your face at night means that you won’t go to bed with makeup clogging your pores and causing breakouts!
MAKEUP REMOVAL WIPES
If you’re particularly short on time at night, it’s okay to take a day off from your normal cleansing routine. Keep some makeup removal wipes in your cabinet, though, so you won’t have to go to bed with makeup still on your face.
PERK UP TIRED EYES
When you aren’t getting enough sleep, people can see it in your eyes. To make matters worse, tired eyes are difficult to fix with makeup. Draw attention away from your eyes’ tired appearance by getting your eyebrows shaped. You can make your eyes really pop by darkening the remaining brows with a compact powder that’s slightly darker than your normal hair color.
BOLD LIP COLOR
As long as you’re hydrating properly, your lips won’t change greatly in appearance even when you’re extremely exhausted. Use this to your advantage by using bold lip gloss or lipstick to draw attention away from the areas of your face that appear tired. It takes just seconds to apply lip coloring, and bold colors don’t need to be applied as often.
GET A FUSS-FREE HAIRSTYLE
Nothing helps a new mom regain her feeling of sexiness quite like a new hairstyle. Even better, loose and slightly undone hairstyles are really hot at the moment. Ask your stylist to help you find a cut that showcases your hair’s natural texture and won’t require a lot of upkeep.
GET EYELASH EXTENSIONS
Getting eyelash extensions is an inexpensive way to enhance the appearance of tired eyes. Eyelash extensions also shave time off of your daily beauty routine because they look terrific all of the time! When you do have a bit of extra time, though, you’re free to dress up your eyelash extensions a bit with products such as glitter or mascara as long as you avoid products containing oil. Eyelash extensions last through a full growth cycle of your natural hair — as long as eight weeks.
The process of getting eyelash extensions is painless and fast, only requiring about an hour. While you lie down, a technician will place protective patches over your eyes and use medical grade adhesive to adhere the extensions to your natural eyelashes. The results are absolutely stunning!
