As a busy baseball mom & someone who loves makeup, I’ve come up with a 5 minute makeup routine that is perfect for busy baseball moms. I know many moms who don’t wear makeup every day but for those of us that do, this post is for you. Or maybe it is for the moms who don’t wear makeup because they think they don’t have the time or the knowledge. This is super simple!! It will accentuate your best features and have you looking and feeling amazing.
Start with your favorite baseball cap and if you have long hair, throw your hair into a pony tail to stay cooler. A baseball cap is essential for keeping the sun out of your face.
Next, I’d apply a good moisturizer with sunscreen to your face. If you use foundation, that’s another great way to block the harmful suns rays. A good foundation will also withstand sweat and humidity. I have super oily skin and when I am out in the humid Indiana summer temps, I get oily. I’ve found a great foundation that helps eliminate this oil and looks great all day. You can check it out here.
Now you can apply a translucent powder or pressed powder (with or without foundation as this will help even out your skin tone & set your foundation). Apply a bronzer just under your cheekbones to make those cheekbones pop. By doing this, it will actually make your face appear a bit thinner & it will give you a sunkissed glow as well. You can also apply the bronzer just under your jawline and on either side of your nose. Apply your blush on your cheekbones…nothing to bright. Pick a color that looks natural.
Apply a few coats of mascara. I am super picky about my mascara. I’m not a fan of lashes that look like spider legs or that are all clumpy. I want my lashes to be thicker and longer but still look natural.
Your final step, is an SPF lip balm and some lip gloss. I prefer something with a little bit of color but nothing too bright. It’s important to choose lip products that don’t contain harmful ingredients as this will be something that is on your lips. I love these fun lip glosses. Their ingredients are amazing, they don’t feel sticky like some lip glosses and they are super cute and functional. There is a mirror on the side of the tube…perfect for reapplying at the baseball field.
I always suggest checking out the ingredients of you skincare and makeup. You want to use the most natural products you can because it takes less than a minute for chemicals in your skincare and makeup to enter your blood stream.
Now, let’s play ball!!
