Low maintenance, time saving beauty tips and products are my jam as a mom.
Us moms rarely have time for ourselves and yet somehow have to sneak some in to maintain our mental health.
A little bit of makeup really makes me feel a little more put together these days, so I’ve had to learn some tips and tricks to cut down on time spent doing my makeup and really any type of maintenance/self-care.
Easy and time saving are the kinds of things I like to hear, and I’m sure the same goes for you as a mom.
So, here are some products that make not feeling like you crawled out from underneath a bridge (we all have those days) a little bit easier.

These collagen under-eye masks help to reduce those puffy eyes and dark circles that basically come with being a mom. Plus they just feel nice and refreshing.
Anti-puff Eye Roller
I didn’t even know this was a thing but this anti-puff eye roller is something you can easily roll on as your chugging down your morning coffee. Let it dry and apply makeup if you want!
Dry shampoo is an absolute must in my routine. The farther I can go between washes the better. I’m not a fan of super scented dry shampoos so this one Not Your Mother’s Clean Freak is really nice.
The baby wipes you probably have in every room of the house work too. I love a good face cleansing wipe when I’m short on time, to very quickly make my face feel clean.
Makeup Removing Cloths
I have been obsessed with these makeup removing cloths lately. All you have to do is wet them and they erase every bit of makeup! They’re super quick, easy, and reusable.
Who doesn’t love a good all-in-one? This Elta MD Daily Tinted Moisturizer provides coverage, moisture, and your daily SPF. Instead of reaching for three different products, all you need is this! It’s non-greasy and mineral-based, so it’s great for your skin too.
A quick eyelash curl goes a long way! I always curl my eyelashes before putting on mascara to make those eyelashes pop just a bit more.
An overnight face mask is an easy way to get in some extra skin care. Apply it before you go to bed and forget about it until the morning.
A good mascara adds some volume and length to your lashes! I love this Urban Decay Lash Freak Mascara for length and definition.
A little bit of highlighter in the right spots will really brighten up a face.
Concealer is my best friend… the bags under my eyes appreciate it most mornings! This Tarte concealer is my absolute go-to.
To be clear, you don’t need makeup or face masks to look and feel good. You should be comfortable in your mommin’ skin!
However, most days a little pick-me-up makeup or self-care face mask really does the trick to make me feel more like me, like I did something for myself today.
And that’s definitely not a bad thing either!
