Beauty Notes: Mom Makeup: The Early Years


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Tuesday, August 28, 2007 1:16 PM (Eastern)

Hm. Last night, after I published Mom Makeup, I realized that was "old Mom Makeup," and that the average new Mom would probably burst out laughing at the idea of having time to wear eyeshadow, so...

The top row is what I considered necessary (actually minus the blush, since I didn't own it back then): sunscreen (here it is tinted) and powder (because I have oily skin).

Eyepencil is the quickest way to look as if you bothered, so you will need at least one good eyepencil.

Lipstick is something you can put on in the car (not while driving obviously, I never really got that). In fact to this day, I keep the lipstick I'm using in my purse, in a mirrored case like these:

There are some years when you will need to get by on the items you consider bare necessities. These items have to work, since you won't have time to fuss with them. I never bought into the notion that a woman suddenly becomes a different creature when she gives birth. Don't give up your makeup, or the concept that you're still entitled to looking good, but do hone your routine to fit into the time you have.
