Being a mom, I don’t have a lot of time on my hands! After running around after my two beautiful children all day, it is a rarity when I can actually make a night out. Not that I’m complaining, I love spending time with my kids! But admittedly, it is great to let go for just the night sometimes. However, it should come as no surprise that when these uncommon occasions do come around, I struggle to find the time to get ready. I’m well aware there are a lot of other mommy’s that will relate to this situation! For that reason, I thought I would share how I have mastered getting ready for a night out in under an hour.
I like to give my skin a little bit of a glow, but I certainly don’t have the time or patience to be tackling the mess that is fake tan. Rushing fake tan is a big no no, if I don’t have time to apply it properly and have a shower, I just look like a streaky mess! What I do instead is use build up moisturiser, it smells wonderful and isn’t a mess! You just need to apply it like normal moisturiser, then amazingly it will develop into a lovely subtle glow.
In this situation, unfortunately, a nice hot shower is out of the question. Right now, dry hair shampoo is your new best friend. Pick a well-known brand like Batiste so the white actually rubs out of your hair, and spray it onto your roots. Leave it in a few minutes, and once you rub it in, any greasiness will be gone! It will also smell lovely. I then always spray some onto my ends, as dry shampoo creates fantastic volume! If you’re lucky you may be able to leave it like this, as if you had purposely created your messy do…
We have no time for starting from scratch here; this is where you need to utilise the makeup you have worn in the day! Consider buying some Lorac makeup, they sell some fabulous products that you can use for topping up your slap, like their Touch-Up To Go Foundation Pen. This way you can do your makeup in half the time, but still look as beautiful! Be careful of going over your old mascara though, as this can result in nasty, clumpy looking lashes – something nobody wants.
Now is definitely not the time to have a break down while trying every single outfit in the wardrobe! You need to make a snap decision, no stumbling over what is going to go with what. Think back to the last time you felt super confident. Perhaps it was what you are wearing in your current profile picture? Wear this! That way you know you are going to be comfortable and therefore happy, with no blisters or wardrobe malfunctions. So what if you’ve been seen wearing it before, at least you feel stunning!
That’s it, you’re ready to go! Cut these corners and you will be surprised how little difference it will make to how you look. Got any more tips? Comment them below!
