While the holiday’s are a time when you always want to look your best being a mom means you can’t spend hours {or sometimes even minutes} getting ready. Luckily, I’ve perfected a few tips over the years that help me elevate my everyday look for special occasions and get out the door in no time.

1. Add a little sparkle

One thing that always trips me up is trying a new hairstyle. I love the idea of trying something new but always end up redoing it five times before i get frustrated and give up. So I’ve found that wearing my hair in the same way I do most days but adding a fun detail like a sparkly clip is just the right touch to make my look more special.

2. No fuss eye makeup

I am the queen of the cat eye. I’d wear it everyday if I could. {Side note: maybe I can? Will follow up.} But here’s the thing. Despite my royal status i’m still not 100% with my cat eye skills. So I’ve found a way to get the look I love in a way that takes no time at all. First, I draw my cat eye with a forgiving black liner. Just trace the general shape along my entire lash line and then extend it out and a bit up towards the edge of my brow. Then I dip a shadow brush in a dark eye shadow color, like gray or black, and go over the line I just drew. it’s a bit smudgy but not messy and gives the look of a smokey eye without being too severe. Plus it’s enough that you don’t need any eyeshadow at all. Add some mascara and your eyes are done.

3. Protect my skin

A few months ago I was with my girlfriends and the topic of deodorant came up. We talk about everything, even underarms! We’re the kind that will absolutely steal their husbands deodorant if it means we’ll stay dry and feel fresh. One of my friends had recently started using Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant and raved about it so much that the next time we were at Costco I bought a four pack without even trying it first. And let me tell you, it lived up to all of the hype! There is nothing worse than finishing your hair and makeup, putting your outfit on, and realizing you just got deodorant all over it. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had to change because I ruined a shirt or dress with awful white residue. Honestly who has time to wait for their deodorant to dry or houdini into their outfit to avoid touching your underarms against the fabric? And i have exceptionally sensitive skin, especially if I’ve just shaved. That’s why I love Dove Dry Spray Antiperspirant. It goes on instantly dry {really!} and provides 48 hours of odor and wetness protection in addition to caring for skin. My underarms have never felt smoother and I don’t even think about ruining my clothes anymore. I can spray it on and immediately get dressed. I’m never looking back.
