As a mom, you don’t have time to spend an hour on your makeup. You may even consider yourself lucky if you get 5 minutes to yourself to throw something on your face and call it good. You’ve got too much going on and your kids always seem to need some extra help in the mornings. If you are missing your old makeup routine, here are some tricks that you can try to help you get more done in a small amount of time.

Powder Foundation

Powder foundation is your best friend. You can bring it on the road if you’re running late and it only takes a minute to apply. With liquid foundations, you have to blend it in with different brushes and applications to get a flawless look. It can be a little messy, but powder foundations can save you that time and hassle. Also, consider getting a powder foundation that already has SPF in it. You’ll be good to go if you forget your sunscreen and it’s one less thing to worry about.

Multi-Tasking Bronzer

If you want to add some color to your cheeks without adding another product, consider getting a multipurpose bronzer and eyeshadow. This two-in-one product allows you the convenience of bronzing and adding some color to your eyes without wasting time. You can apply one right after the other, which means you’ve only added a few second of time. They are made out of similar ingredients, and you can never go wrong with matching colors for a modern monochromatic look.

Microblading

If you spend a lot of time filling your eyebrows in or shaping them, consider microblading instead. This is a semi-permanent cosmetic procedure that can fill in your brows and save you time. It will last between 1-3 years with some small maintenance every year. Your brows will look perfect when you wake up, so you won’t have to worry about plucking or filing your brows in, so this is a huge time saver.

Liquid Lipstick

If you don’t want to apply your lipstick every hour, then try liquid lipstick. Liquid lipstick lasts all day, so you won’t have to worry about it rubbing off or touching up after meals. You only need one coat, so it’s a one-and-done application that will help bring more color to your face quickly.

Palettes

If you like a lot of variety in your makeup but you want to save money, palettes are a great option that works well on the go as well. Think about getting palettes with various eyeshadows and blushes. Some palettes have the whole package with eyeshadow, blush, foundation and lip colors. It’s a great way to save money and time by purchasing one makeup palette that has a lot of options.

Just because you don’t have as much time to get ready as you used to, doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice your look. Try some of these ideas or experiment with your own ideas to find the best look for you and your time.

Why #BohoQueen?

I’m really excited about this new collection. I’ve been thinking about it and letting it develop and morph into what it really wanted to be. I initially started with the idea of #BohoFit because MOVE is all about being active and engaged (and yes, that leads to fit-ness) but also about being unique, your own individual self, a beautiful force to be felt in the world. Boheme women are unapologetically themselves, infusing their life with meaning and self-expression and uncoventionalness when convention doesn’t match their inner guidance.

 

As the collection became it’s own though, with feedback from customers like you, friends and family, I realized that this collection is much more than that - it’s about embracing our Queendom. It’s that significant. It’s that significant for me personally and as a ripple effect out, (because I create what I feel) is significant for my tribe as well.

 

MOVE is going through a rebirth so to speak. My brand baby is stepping into her own and quietly but assuredly claiming her right to be here and her right to be all that she is, unapologetically. It’s a new identity because it’s undefined even enigmatic. You will get to know who she is as you allow yourself to truly know her - just like anyone of us right?

 

I’ve said this before - MOVE has never just been about makeup. MOVE is a MOVEment. It awakens that MAVEN within you that is empowered, that is ACTIVELY a part of her life, that is afraid and does it scared anyway, She is the confident you, the you that knows that she has a power from within that moves with her femininity and her divine nature and that she can use at will to shine bright and sparkle with the stars.

 

And so the #BohoQueen Collection is my first ode to the Queen in you. In this rebirth phase of MOVE Makeup, it’s appropriate to create a collection for you that will inspire you into your rebirth as well. If you’ve needed inspiration to MOVE to your next level of evolution, move with us and be inspired.

Check out the first palette - BOLD - of the #BohoQueen Collection and stay tuned for the REGAL palette - being released next week!
