No-Time New Mama Beauty

No-Time New Mama Beauty

In this video, I go over my everyday makeup routine (less than two minutes, start-to-finish).

But in the past three months, you know what the number-one beauty tip I’ve picked up is? You know that saying “An ounce of prevention equals a pound of cure?” Well, Benjamin Franklin originally coined it while talking about fire-prevention (true story; I am full of fun factoids today)…but it’s something to keep in mind when it comes to things like your hair, skin, and nails, as well. Putting a little extra effort into keeping things nice and healthy does wonders for time-saving in the long-term, because it means that you look more or less A-OK with very little accoutrement.

Some of my favorite ways to keep things in order:

Hair: Use a shampoo and conditioner tailored to your hair’s specific needs (moisture-replenishing, damage-repairing, etc), and enhance the effects with a deep-conditioning treatment at least once a week (this makes an enormous difference, I swear).

Skin: Do not go to sleep with your makeup on. I’m going to say it again: Do not go to sleep with your makeup on. This is a lesson that I learned the hard way, and it is an important one. Also: use moisturizer and eye cream like it is your job, and drink water, drink water, drink water.

Nails: If you can’t get to the salon, a quick file-and-buff will keep your fingertips nice and neat-looking. And if you absolutely adore the look of polish, I insist that you try a gel manicure (you can even DIY it to save money).

  1. Hi! Will you list the products you use in the video?

  2. You look gorgeous :)

  3. Love it! I’ve been trying to branch out from my usual dark, dark eyes (and not much else) and discovering blush more lately, as well as doing mascara sans liner. Definitely helps look more awake, and grown-up I think.
