Get a good haircut
Ask your stylist to give you an easy 'do. Specify that you want something you can let air-dry that looks good if you don't have time to style. For the most mommy-friendly cut, look for something that falls between your chin and shoulders, so it's not too long to manage, but you can still put it back in a ponytail. Keep in mind that easy doesn't have to mean boring. Encourage your stylist to put some sass and fun into your look.

Invest in a good concealer
Nothing says "mommy" more than dark circles under your eyes. Invest in a good concealer to cover those bags and fake your way to a rested look. No one but you and your baby needs to know you were up all night long.
Lengthen your lashes
Look for mascara that lengthens, and be sure to apply two coats. Use a lash brush to separate lashes and remove excess mascara between coats to avoid clumps and raccoon eyes. Longer lashes give the illusion of bright eyes, a big helper to tired moms.

Curling is a must
Never skip curling your eyelashes. It may seem like an expendable step when you're pressed for time, but those few seconds you spend curling your lashes make more of impact than anything else in your routine. Heat the curler for a few seconds with your blow dryer, then curl away for brighter, healthy looking eyes.
Perfect your pout
Apply a shimmery gloss to your lips. It's a quick way to brighten your whole face without a ton of effort.
