How much time do we have to get ready in mornings? For me, I have to get all four of my kids dressed, feed, and ready for the day. Diapers have to get changed and my littlest has to be breast fed. And most days this all happens before taking my sons to school. Oh yeah, this involves getting shoes on and coats. This. alone. takes. forever. I'll hear, "Where's my shoe?". Or I will hear, "I didn't get to play yet, I don't want to go to school." This reminds me of Michael McIntyre's hilarious comedy sketch, Trying to leave the house when you have kids. Yup, this is my life. So if you're anything like me, spending any time on my makeup or hair is almost a joke. Lucky for me, today Kori who is a ahhmazing makeup expert is guest posting sharing some simple and easy makeup tips for all you busy ladies out there. We love her philosophy that we are already beautiful and we should amplify our natural features. Have a happy Tuesday.
 
 
Hey there! Kori from Beauty By Kori. One of my biggest passions besides being a mom is being a stylist. I love doing hair and makeup and helping others feel beautiful about themselves! I have so many favorite trends right now it's hard to narrow them all down but today I will share just a few! Sometimes as a mom, I get super busy and don't have tons of time to spend on myself. There are a lot of days when I have hair that hasn't been washed in 2 days (yes, this is normal for me- I'm a twice a week washer ;)) and I have about 15 minutes to apply my makeup, get my hair done, and be out the door. Please tell me I'm not the only one who has days like this! But when I have no time, one of my go to hairstyles is either a braid or a bun of some sort! They are super easy to do but yet so cute and stylish! Also if your hair is long enough- go for a high pony tail! I LOVE them! My hair isn't quite the right length so personally I go for a low bun or top knot! 
 


When it comes to makeup, most of the time I keep it natural. It's fun to do a heavy look now and then but for the most part- we just want it to enhance our natural features! My makeup must haves include: Nerium day cream as my primer, foundation, a setting powder, brows, a matte eye shadow (I'm loving the mattes right now!), eyeliner, and mascara of course! If there is a day when I don't do my hair and end up just throwing it up, I use a brighter lipstick to "fancy" up my whole look! Maybe that's cheating the system but hey it helps! 
Some of my favorite hair products I use right now are dry shampoo, texture spray, and some sort of root boost. Even when my hair is clean I spray a little dry shampoo in it. It adds a great texture before I curl my hair and when I finish it off with the texture spray I get exactly that, lots of texture and my hair is playable! I also have fine, flat hair so for me this is necessary!

When it comes to beauty I always love to stick to more natural looks. We are already beautiful so let's not go too extreme and stray too far from who we are!
