The Busy Mom’s Morning Makeup Routine
There's no doubt, a modern mom is a busy mom. Between getting your kids ready for school, feeding the dog, and trying to beat the traffic each morning, finding time for yourself can be tricky.
If it has become difficult to carve out time to get ready in the morning we hear you mama. We think these simple steps will save you some time and help you put your best face forward. Because when you look good you feel good, and when you feel good you do good!
By waking up a bit earlier and carving out 10 minutes or less each morning to do a simple makeup routine, you will be amazed at how much better you feel as you tackle the day's to do list.
THE NIGHT BEFORE
A little prep work before bed will save some of that precious time in the morning. Cleanse your skin of all the makeup, debris, and pollutants it may have picked up throughout the day. This will help prevent pesky pimples from making their appearance the next morning and will cleanse the canvas for a new makeup application.
No matter what your skincare routine each night entails, be sure to include a good hydrator. Protect your skin’s delicate barrier with Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix. This medical-grade formula is packed with humectants and a silica gel technology that will guard your skin all night while maintaining moisture levels. When your skin is moisturized in the morning you will have a much easier time applying your makeup.
Using a silk pillowcase is widely known to be more gentle on your skin and your hair. Silk doesn’t absorb oils like cotton does, so it helps avoid bedhead and dry skin.
Here are some tips for a quick makeup routine in the morning:
Quickly Prepping the Skin
Splash your face with some cool water to wake up your skin. Depending on your method of choice, do a quick cleanse before applying any products to your skin. Even if you use silk, it is important to wash off any bacteria you may have picked up from your pillowcase over night.
Next, prep your face with moisturizer and primer for an even foundation application that glides on smooth. Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix bypasses the need for two products here. It acts as a powerful hydrator while also providing the even base you need to easily apply your foundation. While applying your Hydro-Matrix take a minute or two to massage your skin upwards and outwards. This will stimulate your lymphatic system and help de-puff your face in the morning.
Apply Coverage & Protection
Perhaps the most important aspect of a morning routine is applying sunscreen. Nothing ages the skin faster than sun damage, and it only takes a few seconds to apply.
To really save time here, use a foundation that also has SPF protection such as Oxygenetix Foundations. Both Oxygenating and Acne Control Foundation contain titanium dioxide SPF 30. Their long-wear formulas stay put so you stay protected all day.
One of the quickest ways to apply foundation is with a fluffy foundation brush. Brushes don’t waste product nearly as much as sponges and do a great job of blending for a full coverage look.
If you want to even out your skin tone with less coverage, you can skip simplify even further here by combining your Hydro-Matrix and Foundation together for a tinted moisturizer. Apply with clean fingertips or the brush, whichever you prefer.
Brush The Hairs
Tame your inner lioness and run a small lash brush through your brows and lashes. Clear brow gel works really well for this. If you want a little more definition by all means fill in your brows and put on some mascara too!
Add a Pop of Color
Adding some color to your cheeks, eyes, or lips will enliven your spirit even more. There are some great products out today that work as a 3-in-one for eyes, lips, and cheeks. To make it quick, apply color where it will have the most impact. For example, if you defined your eyes, add some color to your lips. Or if you need more definition in your cheeks add a splash of blush or bronzer. A little goes a long way!
