All Aboard The Hot Mess Mom Express!
Whether you’re a mom or not, everyone has those days where they wake up looking like a hot mess. For me, this is pretty much every day especially when my little dude is up all night with some crazy sickness he caught from god knows what. On those days I know I am not leaving the house, so I embrace the hot mess that I have become. And as much as I just want to be a hot mess all the time, I have to remind myself that I am married and even though I know my husband loves me unconditionally, I still want to look good for him. So I take the time to put some make up on and actually brush my hair and switch from sweatpants to leggings, because lets face it, unless we are going out for date night, jeans are way to uncomfortable.
The Kardashian’s Aren’t Real Life
I honestly don’t know how the Kardashian’s do it, dressing up looking cute all the time. Oh wait, I do know, it’s because they get paid millions of dollars! That is not real life people, don’t think that you have to wear heels and dress up every day just to be considered pretty! Brushing your hair and putting on a little lipstick and mascara will still make you feel less like a hot mess. And hey if you can actually get a shower in and shave your legs thats a huge plus. I know it’s going to be a great day when I get to shower in the morning and wash my hair. Most of the time I don’t get the chance until the end of the night when my little dude is asleep. Priorities people, it’s all about juggling what is more important, showering or getting things done. Toddler naps now a days are very unpredictable, so that little window of freedom that I actually get I have to use wisely. For those days when I do want to look and feel my best, I use these 10 beauty products to get me through my chaotic day of dealing with a toddler.
These little facial towels are perfect for cleansing your skin and taking off your make up, even safe on the eye area.
If you need a kick in the butt when you wake up in the morning, than this moisturizer is sure to give it to you, with a burst of Vitamin C.
An amazing creamy concealer that is medium to full coverage, for those days when you didn’t get much sleep but still want to look awake. Best of all it doesn’t crease.
Not sure this is actually better than sex but it is a great volumizing waterproof mascara that wont flake.
This bronzer is everything, best part it even comes with a brush and it great for conturing and a nice tan glow.
If you are like me and need a quick fix without putting on a ton of foundation than this is for you, it is a medium to buildable full coverage powder foundation, best part it has an SPF of 24
If you don’t have an awesome full brow like me, but want one than this pencil will give it to you, stays on all day and has a brush on the other end.
Amazing quick cheek glow for all skin types, who doesn’t want to wear a blush called orgasm?!
I have a kind of obsessive lipstick habit, meaning I am always wearing lipstick, even when I don’t leave the house. There is something about having a nice bright lip on that makes me feel well put together, even when lets face it, I am not.
10. MAC Fix Plus
This product is LIFE! I can not live without this, it is the best setting/hydrating spray for make up or just on clean skin.
All Beauty Products Have A Purpose
All of these products listed have a purpose in making you look beautiful, even when you may feel like a hot mess. I personally use all of these on a daily basis, especially the moisturizer because if there was one thing I learned being a make up artist for 9 years, it is that you MUST ALWAYS MOISTURIZE! There seems to be a misconception in the make up world, that if you have oily skin you don’t need to moisturize. This is completely false, if you don’t moisturize, your skin is going to act like it is being dehydrated and will in fact produce more oils causing you to be even more shiny and oily throughout the day. So please for the love of your skin, MOISTURIZE! It will prevent wrinkles in the future and keep you off the hot mess mom express, unless you want to board that train. Than by all means “All Aboard!”
