6 Quick & Easy Makeup Tips to Try Now
01. Even Out Your Base
Before you apply eye makeup, itâ€™s best to even out your skin tone with a tinted moisturizer or concealer. Letâ€™s be honest, motherhood doesnâ€™t always allow for a full 8 hours of sleep and some days we need a little help hiding those 3 a.m. wakeups.
Touching up your delicate under-eye area can go a long way in boosting the effects of your eyeshadow and mascara. For a natural under-eye concealer, check out this Fruit Pigmented Brightening Concealer Corrector from 100% Pure.
02. White Eyeshadow Is Your New Favorite
Itâ€™s fun to have smoky eyeshadows and pops of color for evenings and special events, but the one color every mom should have in their makeup bag is white. Applying white eyeshadow to the inside corners of your eyes, gives you fresh-faced look, even if you were up all night.
For a fantastic mineral eyeshadow in white, check out Snow Eyeshadow by Erth Minerals. Mineral eye shadows are 100% natural without any harsh dyes or chemicals, so they enhance your beauty while allowing you to stay natural.
03. Earth Tones for Everyday Wear
Now that youâ€™ve highlighted your inner eye in white, try a neutral all-over eyeshadow like bronze or soft gold. This enhances your natural eyelid color with a bit of shimmer, giving you a fresh and put together look.
04. Donâ€™t Neglect Those Brows
Remember your life before kids when you had a standing salon appointment and got your brows regularly waxed and shaped? Those days arenâ€™t gone forever, in fact one of the best things you can do for your makeup routine is to keep your brows shaped and accentuate them slightly with a bit of brown mineral shadow or an eye pencil.
To highlight your brows, try this Eye Pencil from Jane Iredale, which contains moisturizing vitamin E and shea butter, gliding on easily and leaving brows and eyelids hydrated and nourished.
05. Finish with Some Flare
Letâ€™s face it, eyeshadow without mascara is like a picture without a frame. But you donâ€™t need harsh chemicals to achieve stunning, confidence-boosting lashes. The store at Natural Healthy Concepts has natural mascaras that will give you flare without the toxic byproducts.
To lengthen and darken lashes naturally, try Ultra Lengthening Fruit Pigmented Mascara from 100% Pure!
06. Love Your Lips
Letâ€™s face it, your lips arenâ€™t as plump as they were in college, and lip balm alone doesnâ€™t cut it like it used to. Keep your lips hydrated, colorful, and glossy with a natural lip product!
If you need an easy, everyday option for soft and lovely lips, try PureMoist Lipstick in Lily by Jane Iredale.
