5 Quick Beauty Fixes for Tired Mamas

By Sarah James |

Let’s face it, there are definitely days when I feel like something the cat dragged in (the words “tired” and “mother” are totally synonymous, right?), but that doesn’t mean I have to LOOK IT. Nope, I’ve spent extensive time in my highly scientific laboratory (aka my bathroom) figuring out ways to cheat exhaustion and look downright chipper.

The most common complaints I hear from fellow mamas are as follows: dark undereye circles, a dull complexion, tired-looking eyes, dirty hair, and dry, chapped lips.

Well, I’ve got 5 products that I swear by when it comes to these issues, and they’re right after the jump.

Illuminating Concealer

Ladies, forget about that dried-out pot of concealer at the bottom of your makeup bag. You need a liquid concealer that blends effortlessly around the undereye area, as well as any other areas of the face that need luminosity. (Around the base of the nostrils, for starters.) I've been using Clinique's Airbrush Concealer for years now, and, let me tell you, it delivers. Not only does it mask dark undereye circles, but it softens the look of fine lines and wrinkles.

    THANK YOU SARAH! Only took me 16 months but I finally used my $100 gift certificate online at Saks. I wanted to get to $150 for free shipping and the Clinique Concealer got me there! I also got the Clarisonic Mia and the Nars Illuminator, so I guess I went a little over, but Happy Birthday Month to me! :-)

  2. Heather says:

    Dry shampoo is a great thing! I’ve used it many times, you just have to be sure not to use too much or you’ll have a white, powdery residue that almost looks like dandruff. Also, the Garnier skin renew undereye dark cirle roller works really good for less $, and has caffiene in it that helps reduce puffiness, plus it has concealer.

  3. Sarah James says:

    Sonja – you will love all three of those items! Happy birthday month indeed!

    Heather – I will definitely check out the Garnier eye roller. Thanks!
