These 5 star moms have adapted their beauty routines and found some ways to cut corners so they can still throw on some key products and spruce themselves up even when they’ve got a busy day to deal with. Revealing their time-saving beauty secrets, here are a few quick tips that these stars swear by when they’re in a rush but aren’t willing to compromise how they look!
- Amanda Peet
Amanda always throws on a touch of blush and thinks it makes an instant difference: “A pink cheek is a great thing. I love CoverGirl Plumberry Glow blush. I like to feel natural, so I think that with a good Tweezerman tweezer and Elizabeth Arden 8-Hour Cream Lip Protectant on my lips than I am good to go.”
Eva says she has key five products she can apply in about five minutes: “I do everything in a rush. So it’s about having those five products that work for me. It’s a foundation that I can make as light or as heavy as I need to so I can mix it with moisturizer, and finding that perfect shade. It’s about cream blush, concealer, our lip butter that moisturizes, and our eye crayon, in case I want to do a little smudgy smudge. I can do my makeup in five minutes and I’m decent and ready to face the world.”
Gwyneth turns to dry shampoo when she can’t find the time to wash her hair: “This stuff’s great when your hair needs a little spiffing up, especially when it’s starting to get a bit greasy. If you don’t have time to do a full wash, this really does the trick.”
Jessica applies a tinted moisturiser when it a rush which hydrates and adds a glowing finish to her skin so she can skip foundation: “I love multi-tasking products, so I use a tinted moisturiser with SPF that protects and freshens my skin, which is really important with all the travel that I do.”
- Jordana Brewster
Jordana uses products that work fast: “I need stuff that works in a pinch and that doesn’t require a lot of fuss. Like, I can’t sit in the bath for 30 minutes with a mask on my face. And at the end of the day, as a mum, I’m way too tired to take my eye makeup off, and then scrub my face, so I just use the [Pond’s] Towelettes and then I’m done. It’s so, so nice.”
