Do you feel like doing your makeup with the kids around is impossible? Just because you have kids around doesn’t mean you have to throw your beauty routine out the window. It’s important for your sanity and for your confidence to make sure you make time for yourself. Your children will appreciate it when you’re not running around like a crazy woman barking orders. A little bit of TLC in the morning will make for a more calm and collected momma during the day. These ultimate quick beauty routine steps will have you makeup ready within 5-10 minutes!
Mix Your Moisturizer and Your Foundation:
This saves time and allows your foundation to cover more. Moisturizer is really important in order to keep your youthful appearance and protect your skin during the day. Foundation, if you don’t already use it, is the best way to look like you got ready this morning.
Add Powder, Bronzer, and Blush:
After your foundation and moisturizer combo has dried, come back with your powder to set it. Setting your face with powder will make sure your makeup lasts all day long (as long as you’re not sweating). Sweep a little bronzer on your cheeks (make the fish face) and on your neck and forehead. So far this should only have taken about 2-3 minutes. We aren’t getting fancy!
Sweep some blush on the apples of your cheeks and your face is done!
This usually takes me a minute or so. If you have naturally black eyelashes that aren’t super short you can skip this step if you are really crunched for time! However, if you have an extra minute, literally 60 seconds, mascara will make the whole face come together!
I recommend filling in your eyebrows if they need to be filled in but that is a personal preference! This routine should take no longer than 5-7 minutes. We aren’t doing eyeshadow or lining our lips, we are keeping it simple. Don’t feel guilty for spending a little time on yourself. Whether you know it or not spending a little time prepping yourself for the day will make the rest of your day more manageable and more enjoyable.

Doing makeup with kids around is possible and if you can manage getting up a little earlier can be a peaceful process.
