Some of us NEED that extra boost to get through our tiring days. Take a break from your busy day and give yourself a little bit of love and care by establishing a simple make-up routine.

Just like many mums, we tend to get busy with various things like taking care of our children, our home, and our jobs, which may lead us to forget what makes us happy. However, we can still power through all those chores and feel beautiful at the same time.

A simple make-up routine has proven to be a good self-care activity because it can make us more aware of our beauty, thus empowering us to feel more confident all day long. Most importantly, busy mums like us can finish a make-up routine in just five minutes with these essential products.

Make-up items

Make-up to boost confidence:


You will definitely feel more confident after applying this product which gives you a good look while also protecting your skin. As soon as you apply a silicone-based primer to your skin, you will immediately notice that your skin looks much smoother. You wonโ€™t even notice any fine lines or wrinkles, though, flaunting them is the best feeling.

This product also serves as a protective barrier between your skin and your make-up, which helps prevent make-up-induced acne. Your skin will still look great, even when you take off the products.


Through the magic of a good concealer, no one will ever guess that you slept only for a few hours the previous night. It can even hide big, red pimples, making your skin look flawless and perfect in just a few taps.

Concealers are perfect for busy women who want to cover a few problem areas. You wonโ€™t need to apply it all over your face, so you can still flaunt your natural skin while successfully concealing the pimples and dark circles under your eyes.


Blush is an underrated make-up product that can make you look more radiant and youthful. If you apply it properly based on the shape of your face, it can also be used to accentuate your natural features.

For instance, those with round face shapes can apply blush in an upwards motion to add a bit of contour to their cheeks. Women with heart-shaped faces, on the other hand, can soften the angles of their faces by applying the product on the apples of their cheeks. Women with square face shapes can complement their strong jawlines by applying the product right above the area where their cheeks indent. You can also try dusting the product lightly above your nose!


Tired of smudged or trickling down make-up? That’s already a thing of the past. You can secure your make-up and make your skin look amazing at the same time by using make-up setting sprays. With just a few spritzes of the product all over your face, you can be assured that your make-up will stay put all day long.

You can also use make-up setting sprays to solve some of the most common beauty problems! Some products can lock in your make-up and mattify your oily skin, at the same time. There are also setting sprays that contain hydrating ingredients, which are perfect for those with dry skin.

Red lipstick gives you confidence!


This list would not be complete without the classic red lipstick. The bold and vivid colour of this staple make-up product will instantly make you feel confident and sexy. In historical events, women have used red lipstick as a sign of liberation and female strength. Similarly, you can be an empowered and confident woman by topping up your make-up routine by smearing your lips with a powerful and long-lasting red lipstick.

So, as you can see, practicing self-care doesnโ€™t have to be a task. Instead, if your mind is made up, you can boost your confidence while practicing self-care, too. Use these five essential make-up products and perhaps kajal, and see how you feel because these products are easy to use, even by busy mums!
