Makeup for New Moms & Giveaway

Thursday, November 17, 2016

If you follow me on Instagram you would have seen I posted my current go to makeup products I have been using lately. When Lucas was first born I didn't even attempt to use any, but now that we are all getting into a little bit of a routine I've been able to cover up the signs of lack of sleep. Ha!

Speaking of lack of sleep, with getting into a routine with Lucas I've been sort of missing in action on the blog. So far my favorite routine is having my hot cocoa and watching a little bit of Netflix while he takes his first nap of the day. Since I've been MIA from the blog, there's a guest post and a giveaway today! So exciting, just in time for the Holidays! 

Mineralogie contacted me to share this guest post on my blog, and as a new mom myself I thought it was great. I asked them if they would send products for a reader to try. One winner will receive the BB cream in Medium and a Mineral Matte Lipstick in Negligee.

Makeup Tips for New Moms


After nearly ten months of working hard to achieve that “glow” or covering facial discoloration from the “mask of pregnancy,” you are probably an expert in pregnancy makeup. You can camouflage looking pale, peaked or merely tired in a matter of minutes. Now that the baby is here, if you’re like most new moms, you’re looking forward to having your body to yourself again and, eventually, a good night’s sleep. In the meantime, please enjoy the following tips to streamline your makeup routine so you can focus on enjoying one of the most beautiful times of your life.


Good Looks Begin with Good Health


It is impossible to look great without taking care of yourself. Now is a critical time when you need to practice good self-care, such as eating a healthy diet, exercising, drinking lots of water and trying to get as much sleep as possible. While you may not have time for a trip to the gym, you can always do some quick stretches throughout the day. Similarly, you can plan a healthy menu just as easily during baby primetime in the middle of the night as you can during the day. The key during this time is flexibility – and forgiveness for yourself. After all, it is just not possible to do any better than your best.


Face Framing


One of the easiest ways to enhance your natural beauty is to maintain your eyebrows. Properly groomed eyebrows do more than make you look put together. They make you appear more awake by creating a kind of visual face lift and by taking the focus off of tired features such as dark circles under your eyes. If you can’t find the time to tweeze, invest in a quick salon waxing. These ten minutes will give you a little “me time” and transform your appearance for a few weeks at a time. If your brows are skimpy, use a powder or gel product to augment them.


For Better Or For Worse


It is no secret that you and your baby are in it for the long haul. Expect no less from your makeup. Using long-wearing, waterproof products will allow you to devote the minimum of time and effort to maximizing your good looks. Some good bets are a long-wearing foundation, eyeshadow and lipstick, as well as a waterproof mascara. 


Yes, You Can Do It All


Since time is at a premium, you will want to get the maximum effect from the minimum number of products. On hectic mornings, you may wish to:


substitute a BB cream or tinted moisturizer for foundation


smudge lipstick on your cheeks as a cream blush


fill in sparse eyebrows with a matching eyeshadow and a color that matches your browsand

swipe on a favorite lip color.


Since skin, eyes and lips attract quite a bit of attention, this routine will make you look healthy and put together. Of course, no makeup will ever make up for a lack of self-confidence. So, whatever makeup you are wearing or not wearing, please be confident in knowing that simply being a mom is the most wonderful beauty of all.
