Chic Make-Up Tips for the Busy Mom....

Greetings Fashionistas...

We all know mommyhood is truly one of the greatest gifts in the world. In addition to my roles of blogger extraordinare, wife, PR maven, free-lance writer, stylist, philanthropist, and social butterfly, I 'm also the mommy of  two of the sweetest lil' cupcakes in town...

My babes keep me on my toes and do very little to derail my beauty routine in the morning. Wait... did I just say that?? Well it hasn't always been that way.... I can remember days when my son demanded an impromptu game of catch while mommy was trying to apply lashes.. Then there were those days my 9 year old daughter mistaked my lip plumper for lip gloss and headed to school looking like Betty Boop (the teacher was mortified).

So I've seen my share of troubles in the make-up department. Here's a few tips I've implemented to smooth my morning routine along.....

That's me and my little ones, Alliyah & Brenden....

  • Get a proper rest so you'll be fresh and awake in the morning... *I try... Really I do...*
  • Give yourself at least 30 minutes of me time before the kids get up...
  • Cleanse and prep your face with a great moisturizer and a primer.
  • The babes are up... It's game time!
  • While they're getting ready in the bathroom, this is the best time to apply your foundation! *No interruptions*
  • Now come's the moment where you hear "Mommy, I can't find my sock"... No worries.. Let them wait!
  • After hands are clean and free of foundation (which is why you should you use a foundation brush), Solve the crisis and return to your beauty enclave. 
  • Kids are dressed and ready for breakfast! *Consider this an accomplishment if it took less than 60 minutes to complete this task*
  • Blush time, groom those brows and create a sultry eye... Save the luscious pout till' after breakfast!
  • While the babes are eating breakfast, Apply lashes and a get those lips together. Finish with a mist or make-up finisher and head out the door...
