A Busy Mom’s 5-Minute Beauty Tips

My local Lamik Make-Up Bar hosts regular events where busy moms can learn celebrity make-up techniques. You can apply the latest trends such as face conturing, wing tip eyes and celebrity brows in less than 5 minutes.

Initially, I wasn’t sold. Five minutes for a flawless look? Yea, right! That’s what this busy mom of an 18-month old toddler was thinking. Plus, make-up everyday seems like a bit much. But Lamik Make-Up creator Kim Roxie’s words — “life is more than the Oscars and Grammys” — resonated with me. You don’t have to wait for a special occasion to get made up. You also don’t need full make-up to recreate red carpet looks. Easier said than done. I’m sure that’s what you’re thinking. But its true. You only need a few minutes to give yourself a little pick-me-up makeover.

I have been implementing these 5-minute beauty tips more regularly. I must say I feel beautiful. It’s effortless. I will definitely continue to throw on a little bronzer or mineral powder and lip color more often before my lil guy hits full throttle.
