Hi beautiful Moms,
I wanted to do something different. When I became pregnant there were days when I could barely get out of bed to get to work. I thought that for sure when I gave birth, my love for makeup would stop.
I love makeup, I use to spend a lot of time watching YouTube videos to get more and more tips and learn about new makeup products. I love lipsticks, eye shadow palettes, the latest eyeliner, etc. I just thought because many moms would say how little time they had for themselves, that I would not have enough time to feel pretty.
It’s tough being a mom at times but we also have to remember that we need to feel our best in order to be the best moms. It does take a bit extra time to get ready now, than it did before I had Adrian. I give myself extra time before work to get ready while he sleeps so I can get at least some quick foundation, eyeliner and maybe a lip color on my face. I also have found products that help make my makeup application easier. All-in-one foundatitons or full coverage foundation to help skip some steps, quick application tips, and also quick masks to help restore the skin and help with under eyes (which let me tell you are harder for me to conceal now a days). I will do another blog with products I personally use that have helped me now that I am a mom.
My goal is to share tips and to motivate moms to feel their best. Becoming a mom has been one of the most challenging things I have ever done because there is no real right or wrong answer. There are plenty of opinions and judgments that as a first time mom it’s all overwhelming. It is the most rewarding thing I have ever done with my almost 29 years of life and if I had to re-do it, I would do it in a heartbeat.
As a new mom I have a greater understanding of life and appreciation for my own mom and for all those moms who I once wondered how they even handled every day life. We have to motivate each other and encourage each other to be better than the day before. If yesterday we had tantrums, endless crying not only from the baby but ourselves, food thrown every where, explosive diapers, yelling, kicking, etc…. Lets make today better!! We will handle each of those situations with a positive attitude, with “I can do it” attitude, and while we are at it, lets look our best for ourselves.
Feel good and look good for YOU!
