I know as Moms we can put our looks on the back burner, but what we don't realize is that our lack of caring is a bad testimony to our teenagers, our church members, and lost people. If we want the next generation to appreciate modesty, we must make it look attractive to them. Of course, we are not going to compromise God's Word to do so, but we don't have to look like we just woke up either. It's all about balance!
So many ladies are hiding behind their baggy clothes, ponytails, and dark circles, and just honestly don't feel beautiful. I HATE to think that ladies don't think that they are beautiful. EVERY lady is beautiful, because first and foremost God made you perfectly! I want to help you get some of your confidence back. Not because we want to impress others, but because it's important to view yourself in a positive way. I want you to look in the mirror and be confident that you are beautiful.
I asked my good friend Melissa, to help me make the point that looking nice doesn't take THAT much more time, but it does, of course, take a little more effort.
Right: 7 minute makeup routine: little brow pencil, top eyeliner, 2 coats mascara on top, once coat mascara on bottom, foundation, and blush. Hair all natural with bangs pinned back with a pouf. Cute tank, cardigan, simple necklace, jean skirt, and cute flip flops. 10 mins to get ready.
Only a 7 minute difference in getting ready time between these two looks. It doesn't have to be an all glamorous affair to put in a little extra time for yourself. Just a little extra effort in your appearance will instantly boost your mood and confidence and help you feel ready to take on the day! We are worth the extra 7 mins!
Right:10-min. makeup routine: pressed powder foundation, bronzer, eyeliner, eyeshadow, brow liner, lip gloss, and mascara. Second-day hair sprayed with dry shampoo, and used a 3 barrel waver. (takes about 10 minutes) Cute graphic tee, jean skirt, and cute sandals.
I do take a little longer to get ready because I have a high-maitenance hair style, but if you have longer hair, you can find tons of cute ideas to wear your hair on Pinterest! I second Melissa's statement, you ladies are WORTH the extra time getting ready!
