Posted by Empress Naturals on

When it comes to getting ready, women can do it both ways. A full glam session can take upwards of an hour or we can pull ourselves together in 10 minutes. Most times, it depends on the day! When you become a mom, makeup and self-care take a definite backseat.

For busy moms, it may need some trial and error to discover the best skincare and makeup products that suit your skin. A natural and clean routine goes a long way in reducing the time and effort you put into achieving flawless skin. Once you've found the perfect products that work well with your skin, you can create a minimal makeup routine that gives you a radiant and effortless look.

If you are in need of some tips to learn how to curate your own quick 5-minute refresher routine, scroll on! Check out our step-by-step instructions for the ultimate 5-minute makeup routine. 

Step-by-Step 5 Minute Makeup Routine

Designing an efficient five-minute mom makeup regimen need not be complicated. Having a selection of dependable go-to products is crucial to get the job done when time is tight. Opt for products that are easily blendable and can be layered. Using your hands for application makes the process much faster too! 

A valuable beauty tip is to explore multi-functional products. They simplify the process and make achieving a flawless makeup routine much easier. By curating a well-thought-out collection of versatile makeup items, you'll be well-prepared to achieve a polished look. In five minutes, you'll be ready even during the busiest days as a mom.

Step 1 - Start with Your Skin 

Let’s be real- on most days you won’t have the time to do an elaborate skincare routine. But achieving a flawless makeup look only happens with a well-prepared canvas. Proper hydration and nourishment are essential through skincare products. They replenish the skin's moisture levels.

When the skin is moisturized, makeup application becomes smoother and more seamless. Just remember there is skincare for every skin type, so use what is appropriate for you!

In such a case, a minimal routine with multi-purpose ingredients is a god sent! The AM Serum with Rosehip Seed Oil is the skincare solution for every mom makeup routine. It is a fantastic facial oil for everything from pigmentation to anti-aging. With every rosehip seed oil benefit, your skin will be nourished for your makeup! 

We also highly recommend you use a Kansa Wand as part of your routine, especially when you have a few minutes to spare. It is a great lymphatic drainage massage that gives you a glow from within without any makeup! 

Step 2 - Keep the Base Light 

For a natural makeup look, simplicity is key. With mom makeup, the aim is to keep the skin looking natural while helping cover redness, acne spots, or under-eye darkness. Opt for a lightweight skin tint or serum-based foundation to achieve a radiant complexion. 

These products have a thinner consistency, allowing you to build coverage gradually. They also blend quickly and effortlessly for a seamless finish. Remember, less product goes a long way in creating that fresh and luminous appearance while letting your skin's natural beauty shine through.

Step 3 - Add Back Some Colour 

Add a touch of color and radiance to your face by incorporating a cream blush that doubles as a lip stain and cream shadow. A valuable lesson here is the power of multipurpose products—they are your ultimate ally in streamlining your makeup routine to five minutes. 

When you're on the go, the last thing you need is to dig through a cluttered makeup bag searching for various products. Simplify your routine by opting for versatile products that can serve many purposes, making your makeup application faster and more efficient.

Step 4 - Final Touches 

The last step of your routine is yours to customize. An important step for us is mascara. With a few quick swipes, you can lift and define your lashes, making your eyes appear more awake and polished. Mascara adds a finishing touch to your look, making your lashes stand out and enhancing the appearance of your eyes.

For those who prefer a more natural approach to eyebrows, a clear gel is the ideal choice. It helps groom and set your brows in place without adding additional color. The clear gel provides a subtle enhancement, ensuring your brows look neat and well-groomed without overpowering your overall makeup look. 

Wrapping Up

Creating a personalized mom-makeup routine is a journey that requires time and some trial and error. Life with a newborn can often get busy and overwhelming, but it's essential to carve out a moment for self-care whenever you can! Taking even a brief period to focus on yourself can be incredibly rejuvenating

Amidst the hustle, setting aside five minutes for a quick makeup session can be a powerful way to re-center yourself. These moments of self-care can make a significant difference, leaving you feeling more composed and prepared to face whatever challenges may come your way.

Though it might seem like you're racing against time, those five minutes are precious and worth cherishing as they allow you to do something only for yourself. There's no definitive right or wrong way to approach this. The key is finding a quick makeup routine that complements your personal style and fits into your daily schedule. By investing a few minutes in yourself, you'll likely discover a routine that not only enhances your appearance but also boosts your confidence, preparing you for what's to come!
