Giving birth to your baby is probably one of the most exciting days of your life. You are so excited to bring your baby home, so you can show him a lot of love. Taking care of a new baby, however, will take a lot of work. You will have to spend the majority of your time feeding, changing and comforting your baby. Taking care of your baby should not stop you from looking and feeling your best. Even though you will spend a lot of time tending to your baby, you can still find time to put makeup on in the morning. Here are some makeup tips for new moms who do not have a lot of free time.
1. Put On a Tinted Moisturizer
Apply a tinted moisturizer to your face with your fingers. A tinted moisturizer will even out your skin tone but will not feel very heavy on your face. Because a tinted moisturizer blends so well, you will not have to apply a regular moisturizer beforehand.
2. Apply Concealer to Imperfections
Concealer is one of the most important makeup items you can have. A concealer will cover up imperfections like under-eye circles and blemishes. Gently apply the concealer to your skin with your fingers .
3. Open Up Your Eyes With White Eye shadow
Taking care of a new baby can make you very worn out and tired. However, you do not have to have others think you are tired. Use white eye shadow to hide your tired eyes. Sweep eye shadow along your brow bones and to the inner corners of your eyes. You will be left with eyes that look awake and bright. No one will ever suspect that you have had only a few hours of sleep.
4. Apply Creme Blush to Your Cheeks
A creme blush looks more natural than a powder blush and is much faster to apply. Carefully apply some creme blush to the apples of your cheeks with your fingers. If your skin tone is fair, it is best to stick with a pink blush. If you have a warmer skin tone, you can get away with a peach or coral blush.
5. Set Your Makeup With Loose Powder
It is important to sweep loose powder to your face with a powder blush. Loose powder will not only help set your makeup, it will also prevent your skin from getting shiny.
6. Add Mascara to Your Eyelashes
Your eyes will not look complete without some mascara. Mascara will make your eyes stand out. Apply two coats of lengthening mascara to your eyelashes.
7. Put On a Tinted Lip Balm
Apply a tinted lip balm to your lips. It is a lot more sheer than lipstick, so it is a lot easier to apply. If you follow these seven steps, you should get your makeup done in about 10 minutes. When you go out in public, everyone will be envious of how gorgeous you look. It is amazing what a little makeup can do to your overall appearance.
