BBS Feature: The Solo Mama - Beauty Tips For Working Moms
by Christina Brown
I'm really honored to have been featured on mommy blog The Solo Mama chatting all about beauty tips for working moms. Much love and thanks to site founder Regina Sayles for allowing me to share some of my best beauty secrets as a new mom. Here's a snippet of my story: Based on these past 10 months as a new mom, here are some quick beauty tips that all working moms should know: 1.Have a go-to hairstyle Hair is such a major part of your overall beauty look. Many times, it’s the first thing people notice and it really frames your entire look so it’s important to maintain it well. What has helped me tremendously is having a go-to hairstyle. One that I can rely on, that I know I’ll look good in and one that takes me less than 5 minutes to put together. I rely on extensions alot so I make sure to get a style that is easy for me to maintain. It may be a top knot bun or even a french braid. Whatever it is, know how to make it look good in under 5 minutes. 2. Invest in three must-haves: mascara, concealer & lip balm Gone are the days when I can spend an entire day experimenting with new makeup looks. As part of my job as a style blogger, I do get to do it every once in a while, but when baby is around or when we’re on-the-go, I rely on these three simple products. Concealer is an easy alternative to freshen your complexion without the need for heavy foundation. It will correct small imperfections, help even out those dark circles under your eyes (sleepless nights, we know) and won’t come off when you kiss the kids before they head to school. Mascara is an instant eye opener and an all-around easy product to smooth on in very little time. And lip balm is perfect for keeping lips supple and making it look like you have something on even if you don’t have the time or energy for full-on lipstick.
