Being a busy mom on the go does not always lend itself to a full night's rest nor plenty of time to get ready in the morning. Nevertheless, you would prefer not to look like you just rolled out of bed every morning, even though you may have done just that. Here are a few quick and easy tips to maintain a bright fresh look in five minutes or less.
Wake Those Eyes Up
A great way to wake up sleepy eyes is to rub cold milk on them. Just dab cotton balls into a cup of cold whole milk and rub all over your closed eyes. Milk contains Vitamin D and lactic acid which help to rejuvenate dead skin cells and moisturize dry skin. This is a great way to quickly reduce eye puffiness and under eye circles.
Less is Always More
If you are already tired, applying heavy eyeliner will only make your eyes look heavier. For a brighter look in the morning, just use mascara predominately on your upper lashes and lightly graze the bottom lashes. This will allow for a more natural look and will not accentuate any lingering under eye lines or circles.
Add a Splash of Color
Healthy lips and cheeks are usually indicated by a rosy tint. Therefore, Lip Stain is a great product that is subtle yet effective that can be used on both your your cheeks and lips to bring out the natural pink color in these features. A little dab on each cheek and then lips goes a long way! Revlon and CoverGirl both have great lip stain colors that can be bought at any drugstore, such as http://www.drugstor.com.
After you follow these three tips, you'll look like you've gotten more sleep in less time. Five minutes of prepping will leave you with a fresh clean look.
