Between work, kids and social engagements, our lives can get pretty hectic. This is especially true around the holidays, when packed social schedules can interrupt your regular routine. While you’re zooming around taking care of everything, though, you still want to look your best.
Here are some quick tips for busy moms to have gorgeous eyes that don’t take much time, so you can stay beautiful all day without hours of effort in the morning:
1.) Drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated will make your job easier in the morning because well-hydrated skin is naturally bring and clear. It’ll also strengthen your eyelashes.
2.) Eat right. Good nutrition around the clock will help you look and feel more refreshed and alert in the morning. A diet with healthy fats, like those from fish and avocado, is especially beneficial to your complexion.
3.) Try a revitalizing eye mask. If your eyes are looking a little tired, perk them up with cooling cucumbers. Warm green tea bags can also help to tighten sagging skin and relax your eyes. Try it the night before as you soak in the bath and prepare for a busy day.
4.) Play with color. Choosing the right color of eye makeup to complement your eye color will make a dramatic statement without much effort. Instead of a full application of eye makeup, opt for mascara and liner in the right shade. The results will be dramatic but natural enough to wear in any setting.
5.) Go for shimmer. A lightly metallic eye shadow with plenty of shimmer can create dramatic nighttime results with minimal effort, and it makes your eyes seem bigger by drawing attention to your face. Choose a shade that complements your skin tone, like bronze for darker skin or silver for light skin.
6.) Dark mascara is your friend. Black mascara is more dramatic than brown, and you won’t need to apply as much to get great results. For maximum lash-lengthening, apply mascara to the tip of your lashes and wiggle it gently.
7.) Get lash extensions. The best time-saver for your beauty routine is eyelash extensions. Once they’re applied, you’ll have long, full, gorgeous lashes for weeks and can skip the mascara, eyelash curler and everything else. You will have the longest eyelashes you have ever had and they will make a dramatic difference in how you look and feel.
Beautiful eyes don’t have to be time-consuming. These tips will leave your eyes looking gorgeous while leaving you plenty of time to take care of everything else on your to-do list.
