Motherhood is probably one of the most joyous times of your life. It is so easy to fall in love with your kids and to dote on them completely. Somewhere along the way, however, you may discover that you have forgotten to take care of yourself. This usually shows in the way that you look and dress. This is quite normal when you have young children to look after.
It may be time for you to indulge in one of those mommy makeovers. The way that you look can often impact how you feel. The first step to feeling better about yourself, is to look the part. It is time to bring back some of your pre-mommy mojo. Here is how you can do it:
A Great Haircut
This is one of the most important things that you will need when looking sleek, stylish, and put together. Much like a smile, you are never fully dressed without the right haircut. If you are not very good at styling your hair or do not have a lot of time, tell your stylist to make it a low maintenance cut. In addition to making you look good, it will do wonders for your confidence. Getting a cut that looks good is very hard to beat.
Dress for Your Size
It is something that many mothers tend to ignore. It might be because you are trying to mask certain body parts or because you simply do not have time to find the right fit. Either way, it has got to stop. The best way to pull off an outfit is to make sure that it fits well. Clothes that are ill-fitting feel uncomfortable and look it too. It is well worth your time to take out a bunch of different sizes and try them on until you find the perfect size for you. You should also remember that each brand has their own take on sizes. Do not rely on a ‘one size fits all’ approach.
Stylish and Functional
Many mothers tend to make different style choices once they have had kids. This is largely because they need to move around and be much more functional than before. Their style choices typically reflect this. You do not have to compromise, however. You can find clothes and shoes that are stylish and conducive to looking after children. A good tip for doing this is too look at something stylish and to consider how functional it can be when you are wearing it.
Little Things Matter
You do not have to spend hours in front of the mirror, primping yourself. Instead of applying layers of makeup, stick with the basics. Try to aim for applying some mascara and eyeliner before heading out the door. If you do not have time for foundation, blusher, etc. then make sure to moisturize well. This, at least, will help your skin look much better. If lipstick is not an option or takes too long, make sure to always carry lip balm in your bag. You appearance will be greatly improved when you do not have chapped lips.
Just because you are a mother does not mean that you have to settle for frumpy. Instead, you have so many different style choices at your disposal. Go ahead and discover them.
