I always get people telling me how easy I make motherhood look, and than they ask how I manage to look so put together all the time? Let me tell you that it is all an illusion, because motherhood definitely does not feel that way.
I wish I was able to wake up before Penelope every morning but I just cant seem to get up before her 6:30 wakeup call or poke. So instead I get up with her to get her changed, dressed and fed because baby comes first. Than while she is eating or if I can distract her with a toy while she plays in the bathroom, I will get myself ready.
Over the past year of motherhood I really learned to cut down on the amount of products I use everyday because who honestly has time for all that extra stuff. That’s why I always start with a freshly washed face, and than I sprayCaudalie Beauty Elixir and apply OUAI’s Rose Oil to my dried skin (it smells amazing!) and any left over I put on the ends of my hair because I don’t want to waste any of this amazing oil.
Last but not least your lips. Every one who wears makeup needs to get the Charolette Tilbury , It is really popular for a reason. Finally I add Armani Beauty A-Line Liquid Blush which I use for my cheeks by putting a dot of the liquid blush on my finger tips and press it into my cheeks. Sometimes I will add it to my lips too or just line them with Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat pencil in “Pillow Talk”. This pulls the whole look together and looks light enough to wear everyday, and I pretty much do.
Saving all that time and looking like you spend an hour getting ready in the morning is the name of the game when your a mom, and self care is essential at this point in our lives.
