The fucking basics, mamas: these two things. And by no means do I have my shit together. Here is my current manicure:
You, too, can take bathroom selfies that are Facebook and Instagram-worthy! It will take you LESS THAN 5 MINUTES to attain a much classier and more polished look.
1. Fill in your eyebrows
Ladies, please tell me you have stepped up your brow game? There are so many different products available now. You can use a brow pencil, marker, powder or a pigmented wax plus powder combo. If you have no idea what you're doing, buy Benefit Brow Zings Tame and Shape Kit and just fill in your brows. It's that easy! Don't overthink it! Slowly fill in, trace and darken the natural shape of your eyebrows. It's like a freaking facelift, mamas!
And no, I won't be doing a video demo for you. I have a 7 month-old and a 2 year-old and I can't remember the last time I slept through the night. You can Google that shit.
2. Put on lipstick.
And, NO, lipgloss doesn't count. It's not 2006 anymore during your "nightclub heyday" when everyone was wearing Mac Lipglass. That shit gets stuck in your hair. And, more importantly, your tired ass needs some COLOR. A splash of color can be very uplifting, ladies!
I'm absolutely obsessed with Bite Beauty's Amuse Bouche lipsticks. Hands down, the BEST lipstick I've ever used – natural and made with 12 edible oils, gorgeous high-impact colors, creamy coverage and long-wearing. (I'm wearing Bite Beauty's Porcini, an edgy neutral, in my photo.)
That's it, mamas! That's all you have to do! Line your brows. Put on some lipstick. No additional makeup needed. Grab your kids, grab your coffee and go! Or stay home and take selfies in your bathroom. You know, whatever works.
Disclaimer: If this beauty tip doesn't work for you, too bad! A true MOTY hardly has time to perfect her own look, let alone worry about yours.
