What do eye cream, a topknot, and espresso have in common?
They are the Top 3 Must-Have Beauty Tips to (Fake) Looking Your Best!
With two young kids at home, I often find it difficult to get ready in the mornings without having at least one of them knocking down the bathroom door. Because of this, getting myself ready has become a marathon of sorts, which I’m sure many moms can relate to. Here are my top three tips and tricks to fake it in the mornings:
1. Eye Cream
I just started using eye cream (gasp!) and it certainly brightens my eyes to make me appear more awake. Hey, we’re talking about faking it, right?
2. A Topknot for Foolproof Hair
Have one or two foolproof hair styles that take no longer than 5-10 minutes to execute just in case your curling iron decides to break down or your kid decides to break out in a major (timed) tantrum. My top go-to styles are a topknot bun and just plain bedhead (brushed and defined with finishing crème).
Need I say more? I can’t express how much I depend on my Nespresso machine each and every morning. You have espresso at the touch of a button and by the time I’m out the door, I’m wide awake!
We’d love to know what your must-have beauty tips you use to (fake) looking your best!
