Frantic Mama Beauty Tips (Really!)

When you are surviving on little sleep, nursing a baby, chasing after a toddler, and changing dozens of diapers a day, it's hard to feel pretty.

But right or wrong, I do feel better if I take the effort to make myself [somewhat] more presentable-- even if I don't leave the house that day.

For my loyal readers-- experienced mothers, new mothers, and soon-to-be-mothers-- here are some of my favorite easy beauty products:

Nars "The Multiple" Blush Sticks.  So easy. So fast.  Expensive, but one stick lasts forever.

Revlon Colorstay Lipcolor.  My lips are so pale that I look half-dead without some kind of color on them.  If I manage to swipe this on at 8 a.m., it lasts most of the day, and I don't cringe as much when I look in the mirror at 2 p.m.  (My go-to shade is Infinite Raspberry).

Eyelash curler.  I know.  This seems advanced.  Taking 20 seconds to curl my lashes opens up my eyes a lot.

Last, but certainly not least, my ultimate must-have: Garnier Skin Renew Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller. The name says it all.  It's a cooling concealer you roll under your eyes, and it's simply genius.  I can't live without it.

What are some of your can't-live-without-em beauty buys?
