7 Ways Your Beauty Routine Changes when You Have a Baby ...

I have three kids and I guarantee that once those little ones worm their way into your heart, your beauty routine will change.

After all, priorities tend to shift when you become a mother.

Don’t worry – I’m not suggesting that you give up on your looks.

Nearly 12 years into motherhood, I still do my hair and wear make-up nearly every single day.

However, the way I do those things has changed dramatically since I was on my own and only in charge of myself.

Here’s what you can expect.

1. Pick up the Pace and Slap on That Make-up

Sorry, the time for drawn out smoky eye experimentation or a home blowout has gone.

Now, you are going to have to race through your beauty routine because that baby isn’t going to sleep all morning and a toddler isn’t a fan of giving you any time to yourself.

Practice getting your routine done quickly so that you can look the way you want in just a few minutes.2

I promise – it gets easier!

2. Pare Things down Because You Will Be Short on Time

Take advantage of your nesting phase by paring down your beauty product cache.

Get rid of things you don’t use, things that have expired and things that you bought for one purpose and forgot you owned.2

Once you have your stash narrowed down, you’ll see that you can achieve the look you want without all the bells and whistles.

3. Learning to Multitask Will Be Your Best New Skill

I can’t even tell you the things I learned to do with one hand while holding a baby in the other.

Painting my nails and loading the dishwasher come to mind.

You’ll also learn that multitasking is your best friend.2

Look for products that do double duty and you can cut down on your routine while still getting it done.

Look for creams that can be eyeshadow and blush.

Try a gloss/lipstick in one product.

Life will just be easier.
