Mom Tip of the Week: Look More Awake In 60-Seconds


Mom Tip of the Week: How To Look More Awake In 60 SecondsOne of the hallmark signs of being a mother is that you often look tired. The reason: you are tired…often. Being a parent is a 24/7 job without paid vacation (though the benefits are pretty great).

Thank goodness for makeup. If I really want to look more awake I can work wonders with a full face and a handful of products, but there are some days when my main objective is basically just not to look like death warmed over and I want to achieve it in as little time as humanly possible.

This is where my super simple tutorial comes in. I’m showing you how to look more awake in just 60 seconds, using only two products. Easy peasy.

The end result won’t be one you’ll want to wear out to a fancy dinner or anything – you’ll likely want more makeup for that – but, it will give just enough polish so you don’t have to head out to the grocery store looking like a zombie mommy.
