Who said that just because you’re a mom you can’t look absolutely gorgeous? You are the superwoman of modern times: always running around with a million things to do that definitely leave you short on time. But don’t worry!
Here’s five simple but effective hacks guaranteed to make you feel like a princess every time you leave the house – and they’re super quick too.
1. Sprinkle Your Hair With a Little Extra Life
Sometimes your hair just doesn’t want to cooperate – it’s either too dry, too oily, or simply lifeless. But there’s always a couple of tricks you can pull out of your sleeve to give it a little extra bounce, even when you don’t have time to wash it. Just spray some dry shampoo on your roots, shake the strands with your head upside-down and make sure all the white residue is gone. You’re now left with instantly healthier looking hair with an extra kick of volume and shine. Almost feels like magic!
2. Bring Out The Mascara
Putting on a full face of makeup takes too much time, energy and, nine times out of ten, really isn’t necessary. You’ll be surprised by how applying just a few layers of mascara can make a world of difference! Long, luscious and thick lashes are always in and they are guaranteed to make you look more awake and well rested than ever. Plus, the product is quite easy to apply, especially with a little help from a hollywood mirror with lights – sweep, sweep, and voilà, you’re good to go.
3. Throw On That Sparkle
Remember that it’s not just about the clothes. The right accessories will instantly brighten up a simple, dull outfit and make you look like a million dollars in no time, with very little effort. Try going with an all-black ensemble and reaching for those golden statement earrings. Maybe even throw on that beautiful red scarf as well for an unexpected pop!
4. The Devil Is in The (Nail) Details
Looking good as a whole demand you pay attention to the smaller details: eyebrows, skin, and (yes, you guessed it) nails. Don’t worry if you don’t have the time for a complete nail salon appointment. Just make sure you maintain them nicely cut, filed, cuticle-free and moisturized. Modest gestures like this will keep your hands looking and feeling smooth, beautiful and cared for.
5. Make It Smell Like Flowers
Everyone likes to hear that they smell good. It’s just one of those universally loved compliments – truth is, we all enjoy being around people who smell nicely. Thankfully, this one trick couldn’t be easier to apply to your everyday life and will instantly make you feel better. Just choose a fragrance you enjoy and sprinkle it a few times around your neck, wrists and clothes before you leave the house. Beautiful and sweet!
Being a mother is a full-time job on its own. But even though your life is somewhat hectic, there’s no reason you should stop looking and, most importantly, feeling stunned. After all, you deserve it – and it’s really not that complicated!
