Beauty hacks for a busy mom

  •  Line Your Eyes

A fabulous winged eye can be the bane of a woman’s existence, use sticky tape to save time. Stick it along the lash line where you want your line to finish. It acts as a guide to ensure your liner is straight, even, and going in the right direction. You can be as messy as you want as the excess ink will fall on the tape.

  • Down Tools

Dont carry too much tools . Fiddly and so quick to fray, your fingertips are always a much faster way to apply makeup. From foundation to eye shadow, cheek tint and lip colour, a few magic moves and you’re done in minutes. The big benefit of applying foundation with the hands is that the heat from our skin melts the product.

  • Double – and Triple – Dip!

Embrace the 2-in-1 or even 3-in-1 nature of beauty products. Most nude eye shadows with a shimmer make excellent highlighter and illuminator for cheekbones and cupid bows. Glossy pink or orange-toned lipsticks make for creamy, lasting blushes and a clean mascara brush works as a brow brush in a pinch.

  • Beachy waves are easy

For beachy waves, prep hair before it hits the pillow. Sleep with your hair in braids for easy waves in the morning.Twist your hair into two Princess Leia-style buns and spray each with sea salt spray. This will give you waves in no extra time.Source

  • Set bobby pins

If you don’t want to bother with fixing and refixing your hair all day long, spray your bobby pins with hairspray before you put them in.

  • Dry shampoo 

Make dry shampoo your BFF. For those in between forget-it-I’m-hitting-snooze-again days. Dry shampoo will help your hair look like ok . It absorb excess oil at the roots, allowing hair to remain fresh and full for another day.

  • Use T-shirt

It saves so much time by drying your hair with a T-shirt instead of a towel. In addition it gives you frizz-free hair.

  • Heal your heels

Give yourself a healing foot treatment while you sleep. Apply peppermint moisturizer or Vaseline to your tired and cracked feet, and then throw on some comfy, cushioned socks. And head to bed. That’s it. Wake up with soft, smooth feet.

  • Concealer  works

Want your glossy lipstick to have a matte look without buying a new tube? Dab on some concealer before applying. It’ll make it matte just like that, and it’ll also keep your lipstick on longer.

  • Too dark

If you accidentally purchase a foundation that’s too dark, adding a bit of moisturizer to your mix can help lighten it.Source
