4 Make-Up Tips for Busy Moms


Applying make-up on the go has never been easier. We’ve rounded up the best and most convenient make-up products to suit your non-stop lifestyle.


  1. Swap foundation for tinted moisturizer

There’s no point in layering on thick foundation that doesn’t allow your skin to breathe when you get hot and bothered. Tinted moisturizer is lightweight and while it gives your face an even complexion, it also hydrates the skin where foundation doesn’t. Plus, it’s barely visible when you apply, which means it’ll take up minimum time in your morning routine. It also provides your face with SPF 15, giving you one less thing to worry about.

2: Give yourself some color

Giving just a hint of color to the cheekbones is a great way to keep your face looking healthy and flushed, without looking ‘over-done’. The tint blends into the skin with one easy sweep, which you can use your fingers to apply and stays put all day long. The key is to rub into the apple of your cheeks for a more natural look. Low maintenance yet effective.

3: Reduce your busy shine

Whether you’re rushing around doing errands or running after your little one, you’re bound to break out in a sweat! Your make-up needn’t suffer though, because with a pea shaped blob of shine-free base, your make-up will stay looking matte and fresh all day long. Simply apply this evenly around the face before you put your finishing touches on.


Try this: Bioderma Sebium Pore refiner, available at your local pharmacy.


4: Focus on the eyes


If you spend just a little more time on your eyes, then you really look put-together and it creates a focal point on your face. In fact, if the rest of the makeup is so soft, you almost can’t tell a difference until you’ve finished the eyes. Since people look at your eyes a lot, it makes sense to spend a little more time there.
