A beauty routine for busy moms Making time for yourself can seem like an impossible task. Merlyn Akhtar, busy mom and owner of Lookin' Marvelous with Merlyn, shared her six-step routine for the mornings when you should have left five minutes ago! She says that the first step is quickly washing your face. Make sure it is dry before applying any product. Akhtar says, "Apply tinted moisturizer or BB cream with a sponge, brush or even your fingers. I love these products because they pull double duty!" Dab on a little bit of concealer under your eyes to hide any dark circles. "Step four is to add some mascara to your upper lashes. Then swipe on some blush and finish with something on the lips. Now you're ready to go." In just a few easy steps, your five-minute mommy makeover will keep you feeling confident all day! Don't have time for a full face? A good concealer could be your best friend! "As a busy mom, I rarely get enough sleep and get stress-related blemishes," says Akhtar. "With a good concealer, I can cover the dark circles and blemishes and even buff a bit all over my face as a quick foundation when I'm feeling particularly tired. That brightens my whole face and makes me appear well-rested even though I'm planning when I can sneak in a quick nap!"
