  2. I don't really have any good beauty/make-up tips for the busy mom but I'll give it my best shot: If your in a hurry don't worry about flat-ironing or blowing drying your hair just put it up in a cute bun :) I do it all the time!

  3. Always eyeliner and blush....that's it. No tricks from me...I just try and make sure that I put on eyeliner and blush because they open up my eyes and give me some color when I am in a hurry.

  4. A little foundation, bronzer and mascara... and CONCEALER really do the trick for me!

  9. Go with double-duty products. If I can suggest only one product it would be Clinique's face block with a light tint. It's non-greasy, has SPF 30, and is even tinted so you don't even need foundation.

  30. Make sure to drink lots of water for healthy skin - its the easiest way to look good without having to put a huge amount of concealer or foundation on, both of which cost time. It doesn't take much time to put on mascara and lip gloss, both of which can change your appearance dramatically. Little things do matter! Thanks for the giveaway!

  39. I think the best thing is to always have some sort of lip shine and a bit of blush and some concealer. If you have hair that can be pulled into a pony tail have a tie back at the quick because it will give your hair a nice appearance.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Use moisturizer! When you are young and the skin on your youthful, unlined face is soft and beautiful you might think you don't need moisturizer, but when you are 50 you will be glad you used it all those years! :)

    ReplyDelete
  75. Ooh ooh! I have always wanted to try bareMinerals, but haven't yet. The best make-up tip is keeping it simple. When I am in a hurry, I usually put on some powder to control the oil, a little blush, some mascara and I'm out the door.

    ReplyDelete
  76. My best tip is to get up and do it before the kids are awake so you have the peace and quiet to get it done right. I can't brush my hair without my kids asking a million question and wanting to 'help'. For sanity sake wake up early and enjoy the time getting yourself together alone.

    ReplyDelete
  80. 3 basics are all you need. Lash curler, mascara, and lipgloss. The lash curler and mascara give you lush, voluminous lashes while bringing out your eyes and the lipgloss is the perfect ending to kissable lips and adding a touch of color to your overall face.

  81. I would say making sure that you keep water with you at all times to keep your skin refreshed is one thing that would help. Hydrated skin makes your makeup go a long way, I've noticed. And, to me, you really only need a few makeup products: lipcolor, mascara and a good foundation to look wonderful. Don't hassle with a billion products!

    ReplyDelete
  82. You are never too busy to moisturize. It will always pay off.

    ReplyDelete
  83. use powder all day to help keep down the shine. thanks

  94. My beauty tip is to use bareMinerals! I love that it doesn't feel like I am wearing anything; I don't have to use a separate product for sun protection; and if I fall asleep without washing my makeup off it is not going to hurt my skin. Love it!!

    ReplyDelete

  101. When I use my bare minerals it really only takes me about 10 minutes or less if I am not going for full coverage. But, it makes me feel great all day because I know I look good. Then just as mascara and gloss and your done. You don't need to be perfect just enough to feel good. Everyone has their own products that are just enough.

    ReplyDelete
  103. The key is GOOD makeup. Not really expensive stuff, but not cheap stuff either. Bare Minerals is great! It never takes me more than 10 minutes. Concealer around the eyes, a dab of powder, a dash of eye shadow, a bit of mascara, and little bit of gloss. The better stuff lasts longer, and you only have to refresh yourself in the afternoon...that is if you want/have to. :) Vi

  114. I make sure I use a night cream and a good moisturizer, light foundation lip gloss and mascara, when in a hurry

    ReplyDelete
  115. wash your face and put on a nice cream with sunscreen. That's the least you can do. You'll be happier with a few less wrinkles and less sundamage once you finally have time for make-up again!!

    ReplyDelete
  116. A little powder on the t-zone, a touch of mascara on upper lashes, and sheer lip gloss are the three things I ABSOLUTELY need to feel ready to face the world on a busy day. (Must have sunscreen on, too.)

    ReplyDelete
  126. I use Stila Illuminating tinted mositure, gives my skin a dewy fresh look and no need for any other make-up. If I do have the time I add dual lip and cheek cream by Stila in Poppy gives my cheeks a rosy glow and my lips just a hint of color for a more natural look! You can do all of this easily in 10 minutes, but really it only takes about less than 5 minutes!

    ReplyDelete
  127. Pick one thing to focus on. Either use an illumiator, mascara, or lip gloss. If you just try to do one thing, you'll look naturally pretty and not take a lot of time.

  134. Toss out any "rules" you've learned (i.e. you must wear mascara) and just wear what makes you feel beautiful and happy - however little or much that may be.

    ReplyDelete
  135. I don't always have time to deep condition and my hair can get really dry at times, so to hide my damaged ends I put my hair up in a ponytail and smooth a few drops of silicone serum, it gives my hair a ton of shine until I have time to repair the damage.

    ReplyDelete
  146. An all in one product - I use Cargo BeachBlush™ - Coral Beach, which has 4 shades, so I can swirl it as a bronzer, use a particular shade for a blush, and as an eyeshadow too - that and a swipe of gloss and I can make it work for anything from grocery shopping to a (rare) night out

  154. With a 4 month old I have learned to keep it simple! I use lip gloss, under eye concealer for those long, long nights and a hint of blush and a hint of mascara. I put on my make-up for work while my daughter smiles and gurgles at me from her swing. I am not sure if she is smiling at me or laughing at me as I roll my eyes up to put on my mascara!

  155. Keep it simple, if you can't do it in ten minutes or less you may find yourself going the whole day with one eyebrow on, sure wished it would have been the beginning of the day...

  156. I would say to apply a moisturizer in the morning before foundation because it makes it easier and faster to apply a mineral foundation and makes it look better and more natural.

  160. Christina - xristya@rock.com - My beauty make-up tip is to just apply base, powder, lipstick and eyeliner - looks great and if you just use these, it looks like you're using a lot more!

  161. Use an eyelash curler and mascara...it takes very little time and it makes you appear more awake than you may feel!

  162. Find a haircut that works with your hair. I've always straightened my hair even though it is naturally wavy. I finally made peace with it and I use half of the time to do my hair now.

  164. Just get the bare essentials, like 5 products or so, so in the morning you only have to take 5-10 minutes to do your makeup!

    Get a bic lighter for your make-up case. Use it to barely braise your eyeliner/brow pencil before framing your eyes with it.

  166. A little lip gloss and mascara go a long way. But the most important beauty tip is to always wear a smile!

  167. I keep it simple, I pat on the powder, apply mascara and lip gloss and I amout the door.

  168. I second the double-duty route. Use a bit of tinted moisturizer (with SPF), lip balm and I personally love the clear gel mascara. I apply a coat to my lashes and one to groom my brows.

    3 products, 60 seconds and you look refreshed! Even if you aren't!

    Thanks,

  169. I have two hints---One is to always use a moisturizer that contains sunscreen, and the second is that I keep a tube of mascara and lip gloss in my car so I can touch up while on the go.

    Thanks!

  171. My best beauty/make-up tip for the busy mom is use a powder/foundation combo it will take a step out of putting your makeup on.

  174. The one beauty tip that I always follow no matter how tired I am is to never go to bed without removing my make-up, washing my face and applying moisturizer.
