Being a mum is fulfilling…but it can also be really challenging and drain you of any energy you have left. The juggle struggle is real, and so often mum’s are too busy looking after everyone else and don’t make quality time for themselves. However, despite being busy, you still NEED to have some quality time alone to renew and rejuvenate yourself. There is no doubt you are beautiful - but sometimes it’s so easy to neglect yourself because your job, children, and family are your top priority.
Take a deep breath.
There is no need for you to compromise your beauty and taking care of yourself just because you are busy. I have some simple beauty hacks to help you feel your best, which you will be able to squeeze into your morning routine.
Apply your foundation with your moisturiser
If you do not have the time to apply foundation, mix a little foundation in with your moisturiser. This essentially creates a tinted moisturiser and can give you an instant glow and even out your skin tone without accentuating any fine lines or dry patches you may have.
Mascara is your new bestie
To help make your eyes appear wide and awake, investing in a good quality mascara is a must. It is the perfect ammunition to make you look less tired. Runway Room Power Lash Mascara is a rich black mascara that uses a volumizing wand for maximum impact. It also contains silk powder which helps to thicken, adding volume to the lashes and allows for multiple coats without clumping. Don’t forget to coat the top side of lashes too.
Add some colour to your lips
A splash of colour and shine on your lips can do wonders for a quick pick me up. The Runway Room Tinted Lip Prep plumps and hydrates lips and has a soft pink hue making it the perfect everyday lip product.
Use an eye cream
Make sure you are using an eye cream daily. Our Kennedy Road Intensive Eye Cream reduces puffiness and the appearance of dark circles and fine lines. It’s also really light and non-greasy so perfect for morning use.
Use a white or flesh coloured eyeliner
Use a flesh or white coloured eyeliner to line your lower lash line and in the inner corners of your eyes for bigger eyes. Doing so can make your eyes pop and remove any evidence that you have been up all night with an unsettled child!
A relaxing bath
Once the kids are in bed, try and sneak in a quick bath. Take time to indulge in a tub of warm water infused with essential oils and magnesium soak. Play some relaxing tunes and sip on a glass of wine to help your whole body relax and feel as if you are in paradise. This is a great way to rejuvenate and re-energise yourself after a long and tiring day.
