Dump the Mom Frump: Try These 11 Simple Beauty Products

By Nichole |

dump the frump, beauty routines for momsOver the summer, I indulged in a makeover.

The makeup artist was meticulous and I loved the final look and walked out of the store with a bag full of new products.

The only problem?

From start to finish, the makeup application took an hour and fifteen minutes.

I’m lucky to have 10 minutes in the morning to apply makeup, so most of those products sit in my makeup drawer, abandoned.

In my attempt to defrump, I’m making peace with two things:

1) I need to wear some makeup.

2) My beauty routine must be quick and easy.

So, I’ve made a list of the 11 products that I think I can work into my routine without setting myself up for failure.

I’m determined that these products won’t go to the makeup black hole in my bathroom.

    I love that hand cream. I have a gift card that I could use for some of these things. I’m thinking the tinted moisturizer and eyeshadows are a must.

    Also? I love MAC lip glass.

    I seriously need to revamp my makeup bag. I totally agree that *some* makeup is absolutely necessary — and tinted moisturizer is a must (though I have been out for longer than I care to admit. Perhaps today is the time to hit Sephora and pick up a few essentials … gosh I love Sephora.
