10 Minute Makeup Tutorial for Busy Moms!

October 16, 2018

When aren't Moms busy? I know I am constantly busy and have very little time for pampering especially trying to run my own business - makeup in the mornings is honestly sometimes impossible!

This is how my first hour goes every day! My alarm clock aka my gorgeous son Ryan wakes me up at 6.30. I get dressed, wash my face and scream off to make his sandwiches. Thanks to darling Emma I can't make peanut butter or even plain cheese - my sandwiches have to be 'fancy' (they are actually legendary - true story - she used to sell them at school for R15 each!!!! and to this day her friends are always asking her for them). So I make sandwiches with chicken mayo and cheese or lettuce cheese and tomato - healthy and according to my kids 'gourmet'. Oh well the small things in life I need to take credit for right?

After sandwich making Ryan and I continue to make sure he has everything for school - often a cricket kit and/or tennis bags. We do the teeth and the hair and then we battle the traffic to school - he has a milkshake in the car and I drink cold coffee (I do make sure he puts on sunblock and I moisturize). I often have Bear with us - so we can walk along the beach and wait for the traffic to die down which can take an hour or so!

By the time I get to work my day starts, packing orders and chatting to my clients - planning my blog posts and I don't have a spare minute for makeup. So when Sharfaa suggested we do a video for busy Moms - I thought why not? Whose with me? Can you relate to my mornings? So lets watch the video and then scroll down below because I went on a search - okay and I have to admit there were some really good ideas.

Products used:

 And these were some tricks and tips from busy Moms I met on the Internet:

1) do everything you can the night before - pack lunches even

2) prepare your work clothes a week in advance

3) set the alarm for 15 minutes earlier

4) use a brush for blending foundation the sponge takes too long

5) if you can use one product for everything you will save so much time - and guess what the EGYPTIAN BRONZER is a total life saver (eyeshadow and bronzing all in one) 

Chat next week and if you have any time saving tips leave a comment :)
