Well, I find that these hair and make up beauty hacks for the tired mom are usually delivered from gorgeous, tanned, 20 somethings. These are the all-natural women who normally don’t need more than a swipe of mascara and a little gloss. Honey, I am not her. I am pretty okay looking but let’s face it I need to put some effort into my daily routine!

Beauty Tips for the Tired Mom

I have three kids, a husband, run a new business, a have a dog and two cats. So there is quite a bit I juggle. This is not to say I don’t put myself together each day. There is definitely a need for hair and makeup beauty hacks I have some tips that help me do this in 20 minutes each day.

Messy Hair I Care

Let’s talk about hair. I love to wash and style my hair. It sets the tone for how I feel about the way I look. But I can’t always do that. Therefore, there is a day on and a day off schedule I have. Wash one day and style. The next day I use Batiste dry shampoo. I love the Bare scent because it is clean and light with no build-up or residue. The amazing Revlon one-step hair dryer and volumizer is my go-to tool for quick touch-ups. I love this product so much.

Makeup Hacks

Hair and make up beauty hacks for the tired mom must include good make-up. My first and foremost necessity is concealer. I really love the way Bare Minerals stick concealer covers and doesn’t feel heavy. I can dab it on and feel like I have an even skin tone without the feel of a mask. After the concealer, I use a quick sponge and dab it into the rest of my face and spritz Mac Prep and Prime spray. It’s a dewy fresh look that feels natural. It is so quick and goooood!

My lashes are quite thin and I don’t have time (or money) for lash extensions. I use Maybelline Lash Blast that gives me a thicker lash before I put my mascara on. I like the basic Maybelline green and pink! A swipe of blush, and some eyeliner and of course a lip stain. I love the stains out now. They last and I don’t even feel them! I don’t take long but I feel put together. This tired mom needs as many beauty hacks as she can get. Please share any hair and make up beauty hacks for the tired moms you know.
