Moms are obsessed with making every minute of every day count, and you need a makeup routine that's quick, efficient, and gets the job done in a jiffy. Ready to speed things up?
Smoothen your lips up after tooth brushing
Easily exfoliate your lips in mere seconds by running the bristles of your toothbrush lightly on your lips, to get rid of any dead skin cells. Triple the smoothening factor by rubbing your lips on your towel afterwards, then slathering on lip balm right after. This process will take you 20 seconds or less, but it will prime your lips for your lipstick.
Apply four dots of liquid foundation
Liquid makeup always goes on before cream and powder makeup, or else your liquid makeup won't blend well or cake up. Pump out a pea-sized amount of Revlon ColorstayMakeup for Combination/Oily Skin on your palm, then apply on your freshly washed face, with a dot each for your forehead, both cheeks, and chin. Blend upward and in even strokes. This foundation goes on matte and lasts for 24 hours, so you don’t need to worry about it anymore after you apply it!
Conceal and smoothen
Using your pinky finger, apply a dot of concealer over any imperfections without blending it just yet. Use your cream foundation, like Revlon Colorstay2-in-1 Compact Makeup & Concealer, all over your face and neck. If you still see any blemishes, smoothen them out with the unique applicator found in the compact and blend as needed. The best part is your foundation and concealer come in one nifty compact that's easy to just slip into your purse—you'll no longer forget one or the other at home.
Get your blush on
Cream blush is the easiest to apply, because you just swipe it on the apples of your cheeks and then blend. If you want to double up your blush's staying power, apply powder blush on your cheeks. If you apply too much powder blush, don't attempt to wipe it away with tissue; it will make things worse. Apply loose powder or foundation over it to lessen the redness. Try Revlon Powder Blush for an easy pop of color.
Put powder on your lips before applying lipstick
Using either a sponge or makeup brush, apply a thin layer of face powder on your lips to absorb any excess oil. When you apply your lipstick, start at the center of your upper lip, and then move to the edge. Repeat on the other side. Do the same for the lower lip—center, then sides. Smack your lips together to even the color out, then add another thin layer of powder to make it budge proof.
Flick and swish your mascara wand
If you don't have enough time for eyeliner and an eyelash curler, there's still a way to make your eyes pop. Just like your favorite brand of shampoo, mascaras come in formulas to solve whatever you need—lengthening, curling, multiplying—you name it, one tube's got it (or all of it!) One product to try is Revlon's Volume + Length Magnified Mascara. Apply two to three coats of mascara upward, and then if you still have time, swish the mascara wand on top of your lashes from side to side, to give it more thickness.
