Last Friday I felt like I had been run over by a herd of sweaty elephants. I was sore from too much exercise, frazzled from finagling feisty toddlers, and my morning makeup had long ago smudged and smeared off of my face, doing more harm than good.
If you are a mom of little ones, or if you are just in a busy season of life, I’m sure that you can identify with this feeling. And why is it that when the afternoon rolls around, more often than not, I’m feeling anything but beautiful?!?
I am one of those women who is happiest and most efficient if I feel pretty. Even if I am planning to go organize the attic or garden, I want to look cute. So having a daily afternoon beauty crisis just doesn’t synch up with my priorities.
I’ve figured out a few quick ways that I can refresh myself without having to commit to re-doing my entire beauty routine. Some days, I will just choose one, other days, I run through everything. It depends on how big of a boost I need, and the extra time that I have available.
